Check if ini files contains checksum and if so do an action

Recommended Posts

Hi, i'm curious if this is even possible, i want to do an action if the ini file contains current values under a section.

for my test i'm looking for 100,200,300,400,500

and if any of those excits i want to pop a msgbox with the number in the section.

i can in my example find one, but it does not check everyone. why? :( what am i missing?

Local $iscore810[5] = [100,200,300,400,500]
Local $iMax800 = 5

While 1
;~     Send("{pause}")
;;func les ini fil

    $var = IniReadSection("Area.ini", "modus")
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(4096, "Error", "Unable to read section.")
         For $number = 1 To $var[0][0]
If $var[$number][1] == $iscore810[3] Then
      MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "FAnt den på", $var[$number][0], 5)

Correct data in inifile. Test changed script:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Local $iscore810[5] = [100, 200, 300, 400, 500]
Local $iMax800 = 5

If Not FileExists("Area2.ini") Then IniWrite("Area2.ini","Modus","Test","400")

;While 1
    $var = IniReadSection("Area2.ini", "modus")
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(4096, "Error", "Unable to read section.")
        For $number = 1 To $var[0][0]
            If $var[$number][1] == $iscore810[3] Then
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "FAnt den på", $var[$number][0], 5)

it's just for demonstration when inifile holds correct data the MsgBox appears.

;Thanks! helped me alot, but still abit lost.

;in my code i need to check if checksum excits, and if so i need it to rewrite that line in the ini file.

Local $arr[9] = [1218844893, 3651583250,681492513,185647069,2160709610,3972714752,3059395736,4086222246,2699877049]

;this works:
If $var[$number][1] == 1218844893 Then

;this does not:

If $var[$number][1] == $arr[9] Then

i could just do alot of manual typing those checksums, but harder to change, reason i want it in an array so i can just pull it off the excel file direcly.

why does this number to be one lower?

Your array is 0 based, i.e. it counts as 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 not 1, 2, 3, ...9

Also what you could do is something like:

Local $iscore810[5] = [100,200,300,400,500]
Local $iMax800 = 5

For $i = 0 To UBound($iscore810) - 1
    If IniRead("Area.ini", "modus", $iscore810[$i], "") = "" Then ContinueLoop
    MsgBox(4096, "Number found", "Number# " & $iscore810[$i])

      There is a _ArrayToString() but no _ArrayFromString().  ( searched in the forum and google )
      The example is based on the _ArrayToString() help file, to show the reconstruction of the array.
      #include <Array.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $aArray[20] For $i = 0 To 19 $aArray[$i] = $i Next _ArrayDisplay($aArray, "1D Array") MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Items 1-7", _ArrayToString($aArray, @TAB, 1, 7)) ConsoleWrite('>' & _ArrayToString($aArray, @TAB, 1, 7) & '<' & @CRLF) _ArrayDisplay(_ArrayFromString(_ArrayToString($aArray, @TAB, 1, 7), @TAB), "1D ArrayFromString") Local $aArray[10][10] For $i = 0 To 9 For $j = 0 To 9 $aArray[$i][$j] = $i & "-" & $j Next Next _ArrayDisplay($aArray, "2D Array") MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Rows 4-7, cols 2-5", _ArrayToString($aArray, " :: ", 4, 7, @CRLF, 2, 5)) ConsoleWrite('>' & _ArrayToString($aArray, " :: ", 4, 7, @CRLF, 2, 5) & '<' & @CRLF) _ArrayDisplay(_ArrayFromString(_ArrayToString($aArray, " :: ", 4, 7, @CRLF, 2, 5), " :: ", @CRLF), "2D ArrayFromString") Func _ArrayFromString($s, $sDelim_Col = "|", $sDelim_Row = @CRLF, $iForce2D = 0) ; https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/197277-_arrayfromstring/ Local $m, $n, $b, $c = StringSplit($s, $sDelim_Row, 3) $b = StringSplit($c[0], $sDelim_Col, 3) If UBound($c) = 1 And Not $iForce2D Then Return $b Local $a[UBound($c)][UBound($b)] For $n = 0 To UBound($c) - 1 $b = StringSplit($c[$n], $sDelim_Col, 3) If UBound($b) > UBound($a, 2) Then Return SetError(1) For $m = 0 To UBound($b) - 1 $a[$n][$m] = $b[$m] Next Next Return $a EndFunc ;==>_ArrayFromString

      Hello all! I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday festivities. 
      I'm working on a script that involves copying a string of text from an Excel workbook and searching for it in a particular website's search tool. If a result is found, it will do something. If not, it will do something else.
      So far, it can successfully execute the search -- and then it shows me the results in an array.
      Screenshot of the successful search:

      The search results in an array:

      Here's the code (sorry for all my comments):

      My main question is: How do I create an If... Then based on what is found in the search results? I need additional tasks to run if Col 1, Row 2 in the array contains the exact string I searched for. (Am I going about this the right way?)
      My next question (I might make a new thread for): How do I make the whole thing loop, as in, copy the next cell in the Excel sheet and do the whole thing over again until there's no more? I understand that a For/Next loop thingy would be used. I just don't know how. Loops are really confusing to me.
      Thank you all for your guidance and have a happy new year!

      I've to upload different number of photos online in different assignments. There is a problem that all photos cannot be selected at once to upload. I have to choose and upload photos one by one. For this purpose I have made a script to automate whatever I have to do manually for choosing and uploading photos one by one.
      Please see my script below and check the last "MouseClick" command. This command clicks the button to choose and upload next photo. The problem I'm facing is; the last "MouseClick" works 1 step extra when all photos have been selected and uploaded. I mean if 7 photos are to be uploaded, this command opens the box from where next photo is selected and uploaded then it again opens the box and next photo is choosen and so on.... when last photo is selected and uploaded, this button once again opens the box. When all photos are uploaded, it should not click the button to select next photo. Please suggest how can I resolve this issue.
      #include <AutoItConstants.au3> Sleep(200) HotKeySet("{ESC}","Quit") ;Press ESC key to quit Send("{ALT DOWN}") Send("{TAB}") Send("{ALT UP}") Sleep(200) Local $photos = InputBox("Question", "How many photos to upload?", "#", "", _ - 1, -1, 0, 0) ; How many photos to upload Local $selector = 0 While $photos <> $selector MouseClick("Left", 281, 238, 1) ; mouse click on very first photo in the box. if $selector = 0 Then Send("{ENTER}") ; for selecting very first photo from "open" window. Sleep(800) Else sleep(200) Send("{RIGHT " & $selector & "}") ; for selecting 2nd to onward photos from "open" window. sleep(1000) Send("{ENTER}") sleep(1000) EndIf MouseClick("Left", 495, 198, 1) ; for clicking a button to choose next photo to upload $selector = $selector + 1 WEnd Beep(1500, 300) ; beep when all photos uploaded Exit Regards,

      Hi guys,
      I'm learning about GUI's, I'm trying the below code, the idea being if I press the letter "e" while I have the GUI open I want the label color to change to green (I'm using a UDF for label colors). But every time I press "e" on my keyboard I just get a "ding" sound from my speakers and nothing changes with the label.
      I've looked at using something like "While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE" as I've seen it in other code instead of "While 1", but I don't think it's relevant.
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>; for GUI... #include <GUIRichLabel.au3>; UDF for rich text label fonts #include <Misc.au3>; for _IsPressed $myLetter = "e" $hGUI = GUICreate("test", 700, 60) $lbl2 = _GUICtrlRichLabel_Create($hGUI, '<font color="purple">' & $myLetter & '</font>', 10, 10); , 260, 25 GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) Local $hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll") While 1 if _IsPressed(Hex($myLetter), $hDLL) Then While _IsPressed(Hex($myLetter), $hDLL) Sleep(250) WEnd _GUICtrlRichLabel_SetData($lbl2, '<font color="green">' & $myLetter & '</font>') Sleep(2000) DllClose($hDLL) Exit EndIf Sleep(50) WEnd DllClose($hDLL) I am using an array of letters that I'm wanting to do this for, but as I can't get it to work I've stripped it down to the simplest code I can think of to try and get this working first. Appreciate any help.

      hi dears
      am using an ini files as a History
      Sometimes the file size is be larger to 5 MB
      AutoIt does not recognize the full content of the file
      When I did a search to find out why, I discovered that INI files could not be read if they size larger than 64 KB.
      for that I preferred to ask here if is there any way to bypass this obstacle.
      The contents of the file are  as follows
      ....... Etc
      This is the section for reading the file (adapted from my main script)

      case $continue     Local $aArray = IniReadSection($WaitingListFile, StringEncrypt(true, "filesList", $MyPassword))     If Not @error Then Opt("GUICloseOnESC", 1) _GUICtrlListView_DeleteAllItems($scList)         For $i = 1 To $aArray[0][0] $path = path_list(StringEncrypt(false, $aArray[$i][0], $MyPassWord), 1) if FileExists(StringEncrypt(false, $aArray[$i][0], $MyPassWord)) then GUICtrlCreateListViewItem(_GetFileName(FileGetLongName(StringEncrypt(false, $aArray[$i][0], $MyPassWord))) & Opt("GUIDataSeparatorChar") & " : " & Opt("GUIDataSeparatorChar") & FileGetLongName(StringEncrypt(false, $aArray[$i][0], $MyPassWord)), $scList) else $path = $path endIf         Next GUISetState(@sw_disable, $hGUI) GUISetState(@sw_show, $hGUI2) GUICtrlSetState($SClist, $GUI_FOCUS) else if $accessibilitymode = 1 then speak(str("listEmpty")) endIf endIf
      Is there any way to solve this problem, please?
      am waiting your answers...
      Greetings to All
