[Solved] iniwrite multiple inputs (shorten code)

Recommended Posts

p1xeL

Could anybody be my hero and help me out? ^_^

Quick explanation:

I dont want:

IniWrite("TEST.INI","Section", $Name1 , GUICtrlRead($Input1))
IniWrite("TEST.INI","Section", $Name2 , GUICtrlRead($Input2))
IniWrite("TEST.INI","Section", $Name3 , GUICtrlRead($Input3))
...

I want to increase $Name and $Input by itself.

 

A week passed now and i cant figure this out,  since i'll hardtry to find solutions by myself.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @p1xeL, and welcome to the AutoIt forum :)
If you have created a set of variables named $Name1...n, and $Input1...n, then you could easily make an array in which you put all the variables ( $Name1...n ) and another array in which you put inputs ( $Input1...n ), and loop them to write in the .ini file.

I think you could use another approach to do this... Maybe @Melba23 knows a little bit about this! :)

I will always thank you for the time you spent for me.
I'm here to ask, and from your response, I'd like to learn.
By my knowledge, I can help someone else, and "that someone" could help in turn another, and so on.

ALWAYS GOOD TO READ:

In case I am violating some pseudo Forum rule, or I am doing something wrong, I want let you know that I'm not doing this on purpose, and for this, I kindly ask you to send me a private message about the "bad content" I posted, in order to edit/remove it, and to not be warned wrongly.
Thanks in advance.

Simply use an Array for the Names and the Inputs and use a for..Next loop to write them all into the ini.
Post your runable test script when you want us to assist to make the change.
