Need some help understanding...

Recommended Posts

Need some help understanding why the ConsoleWrite works inside 2nd For loop but not out side. Between Audit Wiki, Help file , Forum searching (lots of code reading), and YouTube ( shout out to TutsTeach), I have not been able to find the reason why. 

$sIniPath = "installLog.ini"

; - Get section name
 $iniSctionNames = IniReadSectionNames($sIniPath)

; - Get Keys and Vaules
For $a = 1 to UBound($iniSctionNames) - 1
    $keys = IniReadSection($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[$a])
    For $b = 1 to UBound($keys) - 1
        $oldSysInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[1], $keys[$b][0], "")
        $PntIPInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[2], $keys[$b][0], "")
        $NewPCInfor = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[3], $keys[$b][0], "")

        ;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF)
;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF)


My intention is to use the variables later for Listboxes. Any explanation, forum post links or whatever would help. Sorry also very very new to Autoit.

Also here's the ini file.

Thank you for your time.

Make sure that $oldSysInfo isn't empty at that time:

ConsoleWrite(">" & $oldSysInfo & "<" & @CRLF)

also, you are trying to read from a sectionName with keys that are not present in that sections, so you get empty values.
In the last read you make to set the $oldSysInfo variable, you are trying to find  the key 'newPC' within the [OldSysInfo] section, and since this key is not found there, you get an empty value. Try this snippet to "see" what happens

#include <array.au3>
$sIniPath = "installLog.ini"

; - Get section name
$iniSctionNames = IniReadSectionNames($sIniPath)
; _ArrayDisplay($iniSctionNames, "$iniSctionNames")

; - Get Keys and Vaules
For $a = 1 To UBound($iniSctionNames) - 1
    $keys = IniReadSection($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[$a])
    ; _ArrayDisplay($keys, "$keys")
    For $b = 1 To UBound($keys) - 1
        $oldSysInfo = IniRead($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[1], $keys[$b][0], "(?) key " & $keys[$b][0] & " not found in " & $iniSctionNames[1])
        $PntIPInfo = IniRead($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[2], $keys[$b][0], "(?) key " & $keys[$b][0] & " not found in " & $iniSctionNames[2])
        $NewPCInfor = IniRead($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[3], $keys[$b][0], "(?) key " & $keys[$b][0] & " not found in " & $iniSctionNames[3])

        ConsoleWrite("[" & $iniSctionNames[1] & '] ' & $keys[$b][0] & '=' & $oldSysInfo & @TAB & "[" & $iniSctionNames[2] & '] ' & $keys[$b][0] & '=' & $PntIPInfo & @TAB & "[" & $iniSctionNames[3] & '] ' & $keys[$b][0] & '=' & $NewPCInfor & @LF)
    ConsoleWrite("------------------------" & @CRLF & $oldSysInfo & @CRLF & "========================" & @CRLF) ; $oldSysInfo & @LF)

ConsoleWrite("> " & $oldSysInfo & " <" & @CRLF & @CRLF)

Thank you Water and Chimp, the logic check helped. Realize now that what I wanted to do was this... 

Global $sIniPath = "installLog.ini"

$iniSctionNames = IniReadSectionNames($sIniPath)
; _ArrayDisplay($iniSctionNames, "$iniSctionNames")
$keys1 = IniReadSection($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[1])
$keys2 = IniReadSection($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[2])
$keys3 = IniReadSection($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[3])
;_ArrayDisplay($keys1, "$keys")

And Chimp thank you for code below..

;_ArrayDisplay($keys1, "$keys")

Just could not get my brain to understand what the Help file was talking about. Let alone make it do anything.

Don't know if I can add to this topic or not. So if I'm wrong please advise proper etiquette.

Need to ask for some additional understanding. 

What have I gotten wrong with the below code? ArrayDisplays shows that $keys2 has data and ConsoleWrite write the correct text, but the ListView is blank. Still using the same Ini file posted at the top of the topic.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <GUIListView.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>

Global $sIniPath = "installLog.ini"

$iniSctionNames = IniReadSectionNames($sIniPath)
 ;_ArrayDisplay($iniSctionNames, "$iniSctionNames")
 $keys2 = IniReadSection($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[2])
_ArrayDisplay($keys2 , "$keys2")

; Create GUI
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 600, 500)

; Create ListView

$cLV = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 10, 10, 580, 300)

For $i = 1 To UBound($keys2) - 1
ConsoleWrite($keys2[$i][1] & @CRLF)

_GUICtrlListView_AddArray($cLV, $keys2[$i][0])


While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE


And I did try it with GUICtrlListView_AddArray($cLV, $Keys2[$i][1]) with the same result.

      I'm having some issues with writing to column C when an element is found. It works on C2 but it does not continue to C3, C4, C5, etc..... I'm wanting to write "test" if the element //input[@id='username'] is found  $someUser = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//input[@id='username']"). I have attached my HTML and Excel file along with my AutoIt code below:
      #Include "wd_core.au3" #Include "wd_helper.au3" #Include "wd_core.au3" #Include "File.au3" #Include "Array.au3" #Include "Excel.au3" Local $sDesiredCapabilities, $sSession _WD_Startup() $Ssession = _WD_CreateSession($sDesiredCapabilities) _WD_Navigate($sSession, "") _WD_LoadWait($sSession) Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open() Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, "C:\Users\<Username>\Downloads\test.xlsx") Local $aArrayTest1 = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1, $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Usedrange.Columns("A:A")) Local $aArrayTest2 = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1, $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Usedrange.Columns("B:B")) For $i = 0 To UBound($aArrayTest1) - 1 _WD_Navigate($Ssession, $aArrayTest1[$i]) _WD_LoadWait($sSession) $someUser = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//input[@id='username']") _WD_SetElementValue($sSession, $someUser, $aArrayTest2[$i]) Local $sElement = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//input[@type='submit'][@value='Submit']") _WD_ElementAction($sSession, $sElement, 'click') _WD_LoadWait($sSession) Sleep(5000) If $someUser Then Local $aArray2D[2] = ["test"] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $aArray2D, "C2") EndIf Next Func SetupChrome() _WD_Option('Driver', 'chromedriver.exe') _WD_Option('Port', 9515) _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log-path="' & @ScriptDir & '\chrome.log"') $sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities": {"alwaysMatch": {"goog:chromeOptions": {"w3c": true, "args":["start-maximized","disable-infobars"]}}}}' EndFunc ;==>SetupChrome

      hello again,
      it has been a long time since i have been here and a long time since i last used autoit. ever so often when the time allows me to, then i follow up on an idea that i had a long time ago. i have done all the work on paper but now it is up to writing it in autoit and i keep stumbling over many little issues here and there. sometimes after a few days i will try again and get a step further but sometimes it just will not help no matter how long i try and think about a solution. for most of you it will be the basics but for me it is not all that easy, but at least i give it a try.
      right, down to business:
      here is my code:
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <StringConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <String.au3> ; ; PART 1: define replacements and check with msgbox ; Global $y, $z $y = "Yes" $z = "No" MsgBox(0,"replacements", $y & @CRLF & $z) ;the replacements in a message box ; ; PART 2: set the texts and check via console and msgbox ; Global $my1string = "abab" ;the first specified text MsgBox(0,"my1string", $my1string) ;the message box to output the first specified text Global $my2string = "icic" ;the second specified text MsgBox(0,"my2string", $my2string) ;the message box to output the second specified text ; ; PART 3: transform the strings to individual arrays ; $my1array = StringSplit($my1string, "") $my1array[0] = "" _ArrayDelete($my1array, 0) _ArrayDisplay($my1array, "my1array") ;the display of the first specified array $my2array = StringSplit($my2string, "") $my2array[0] = "" _ArrayDelete($my2array, 0) _ArrayDisplay($my2array, "my2array") ;the display of the first specified array ; ; PART 4: create an empty array for filling ; Global $OutputArray[4] $OutputArray[0] = "" _ArrayDisplay($OutputArray, "OutputArray") ;the display of the first specified array ; ; PART 5: compare & fill empty OutputArray with data after evaluation ; Global $i, $j, $k For $i = 0 to UBound($my1array) -1 For $j = 0 to UBound($my2array) -1 For $k = 0 to UBound($OutputArray) -1 If $my1array[$i] = "a" And $my2array[$j] = "i" Then $OutputArray[$k] = $y Else $OutputArray[$k] = $z EndIf Next Next Next _ArrayDisplay($OutputArray, "OutputArray") ;the display of the Newly filled Array In "Part 2" i make a string that is converted to an array in "Part 3" ... Now, I know that "a" and "i" are always in the exact same spot in both arrays and so i wanted to compare this and make a further array to document my findings by saying "yes" or "no" ... however my new array keeps saying just "no" allthough i can clearly see and know that it should say:
      yes no yes no my guess is that there is something wrong within my for-loops and that the counting is somehow "off" i guess that when the first for-loop is finished it reaches the second whilst the second for-loop is checking the first which would explain why it always says "no" instead of seeing the obvious.
      so my question would be: what is wrong with my for-loop? or where am i making an error that ultimately gives me the wrong results?
      help is much appreciated.
      kind regards
      PS: sorry for my not so great english spelling ... stupid german sitting here trying out intermediate english skills.

      Hi there,
      I made a script together with some great help from this community. What is does is, sit in the tray until ctrl+1 is pressed, it will ask for input (in this case a short word that contains a longer answer in the ini file it will paste, for example when answering outlook mails with default answers) now the list will become longer and longer, and learning the strings by head will get harder so I was looking into listing the search terms somewhere in the program but can't really find code to borrow for it on these forums. I was wondering if anyone here would be able to help me with it. What I'm looking for is some "bar" attached to the search bar, or some pulldown menu that lists the options that would be the most convenient view. I've attached my script here.
      #include <Misc.au3> HotKeySet("^1", "search") $zoek = "" ; if its going to be a string, its good practice to declare it as a string While 1 Sleep(1) WEnd Func _test() Local $sIni = @ScriptDir & "\antwoorden.ini" Local $sAnswer = "" $sAnswer = IniRead($sIni, "answers", $zoek, "Sorry No answer available") If StringInStr($sAnswer,"<enter>") Then $aAnswer = StringSplit($sAnswer,"<enter>",1) ; 1 = entire delimiter string is needed to mark the split $sAnswer = "" For $i = 1 To $aAnswer[0] $sAnswer &= $aAnswer[$i] & @CR Next EndIf _Sendex ($sAnswer) $zoek = "" ;Reset string EndFunc ;==>_test Func search() $zoek &= InputBox("Zoeken", "Zoekterm:") _test() EndFunc ;==>search Func _SendEx($ss) Local $iT = TimerInit() While _IsPressed("10") Or _IsPressed("11") Or _IsPressed("12") If TimerDiff($iT) > 2000 Then MsgBox(262144, "Warning", "Shift, Ctrl and Alt keys need to be released to proceed!") $iT = TimerInit() ; reset the timer EndIf WEnd Send($ss) $zoek = "" ;Reset string EndFunc ;==>_SendEx [answers] password=answer rule 1<enter>rule 2 abuse=answer rule 1<enter>rule 2 VPN=answer rule 1<enter>rule 2<enter>rule 3

      Hi dear friends!, i'm sorry for creating a new thread (a new problem), i have over than 9 lists that i want to combine them to be this (in this example, there are 3 test files):

      I've written a little code for splitting main information, but i really confused how to make results as "Output.txt", here is that code:
      $sRegex_1 = StringRegExp(FileRead("1.txt"), '(?s:(?<=\=\=\r\n)(.*?)(?=\r\n\=\=))', 3) $sRegex_2 = StringRegExp(FileRead("2.txt"), '(?s:(?<=\=\=\r\n)(.*?)(?=\r\n\=\=))', 3) $sRegex_3 = StringRegExp(FileRead("3.txt"), '(?s:(?<=\=\=\r\n)(.*?)(?=\r\n\=\=))', 3) For $i = 0 To UBound($sRegex_1) - 1 ConsoleWrite($sRegex_1[$i] & @CRLF) For $j = 0 To UBound($sRegex_2) - 1 ConsoleWrite($sRegex_2[$j] & @CRLF) For $k = 0 To UBound($sRegex_3) - 1 ConsoleWrite($sRegex_3[$k] & @CRLF) Next Next Next
