How to get a variable in a folder path?

11 posts in this topic

I wrote a script that take a screenshot of a certain area and saves it in a map.

However I want to take multiple screenshots in a row, without it erasing the same picture every time.

dim $sFilePath = "C:\Users\Deeters\Desktop\aze\$key.jpg"

$key is a variable that is different each time.

 

And alternative that I also would like to try is add a date and time in the name of the screenshot.

Thank you

You must concatenate the string and the variable, using the character "&" :

$sFilePath = "C:\Users\Deeters\Desktop\aze\" & $key & ".jpg"

For the rest, look at the help file, please

 

Thank you for answering but I already tried that and when I do that my image has no name.

Well, that is the valid way of doing it so show the code that you have issues with so we can check whether there is something else wrong.

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")
HotKeySet("k", "drukknopK")

Global $key
Global $som
#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
dim $sFilePath = "C:\Users\Deeters\Desktop\aze\" & $key & ".jpg"
dim $OCR_Rectangle[4] = [434, 256, 750, 447]


Func Terminate()
   Exit 1
EndFunc

MsgBox(0, "test", "ok")

Func drukknopK()

_ScreenCapture_Capture($sFilePath,434, 256, 750, 447,False)
Local $som = PixelChecksum ( 434, 256, 750, 447 )
$key = "k"

sleep(300)
MsgBox(1,"test","de som =" & $key & " " & $som)
sleep(300)
WinActivate ("azebeze - WordPad")
WinWaitActive("azebeze - WordPad")
Send(1 & " " & $som & "{ENTER}")

EndFunc


While 1
   sleep(250)
WEnd

Replace $key with $som, I forgot I was testing things.

So why do you expect that $key is anything else than empty ("") at the time you concatenate it into the $ sFilePath  variable?

Well, I hope you have some expectations what that filename actually should be...right?
Explain what your intent was for the $Key variable and what is supposed to contain.

I found it!

 

This is what I wanted to achieve:

Thank you for helping.

Func drukknopK()
Local $som = PixelChecksum ( 434, 256, 750, 447 )
_ScreenCapture_Capture("C:\Users\Deeters\Desktop\aze\" & $som & ".jpg",434, 256, 750, 447,False)
$key = "k"
sleep(300)
MsgBox(1,"poes","de som =" & $key & " " & $som)
;dim $sFilePath = "C:\Users\Deeters\Desktop\aze\" & $som & ".jpg"
sleep(300)
WinActivate ("azebeze - WordPad")
WinWaitActive("azebeze - WordPad")
Send(1 & " " & $som & "{ENTER}")

EndFunc

This is maybe to much to ask but.

If you look at my code you might understand what im trying to do.

I want to make a list of all the pixelvaluesums of an area that is chaning on the screen in wordpad.

But now my script automatically goes to wordpad, types the pixelvaluesum and then I have to go back to the screen I want to take screenshots from manually, is there a way that I can make this list in the background without changing windows?
