hello sirs,
i have searched allot about an function that can  read the INI file as a  string

i mean function to read the ini files from string and not from the file directly.

i finally found an UDF that do what i want

but unfortunately all the functions work,  but the function that i want it not working.

this is the udf

the function that  i need is _IniReadFromString

this is the function

Func _IniReadFromString($szInput, $szSection, $szKey, $Default)
$szInput = StringStripCR($szInput)
Local $aRegMl = StringRegExp($szInput, "\[" & __StringEscapeRegExp($szSection) & "\]\n+(?:[^\[].*?=.*\n)*" & __StringEscapeRegExp($szKey) & "=(.*)\n?(", 3)
If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, $Default) ; key not found
    Return $aRegMl[0]
EndFunc;==>_IniReadFromString

i hope that any one can help me

thank you in advance

Might be a good idea to tell everyone what's not working, and how.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

There is an error in the function's regular expression.  Right before the last double quote, there is an erroneous right paren ("(").  The corrected function below has the original line commented out and the corrected line right below it.

Func _IniReadFromString($szInput, $szSection, $szKey, $Default)
    $szInput = StringStripCR($szInput)
;~  Local $aRegMl = StringRegExp($szInput, "\[" & __StringEscapeRegExp($szSection) & "\]\n+(?:[^\[].*?=.*\n)*" & __StringEscapeRegExp($szKey) & "=(.*)\n?(", 3)
    Local $aRegMl = StringRegExp($szInput, "\[" & __StringEscapeRegExp($szSection) & "\]\n+(?:[^\[].*?=.*\n)*" & __StringEscapeRegExp($szKey) & "=(.*)\n?", 3)
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, $Default) ; key not found

    Return $aRegMl[0]
EndFunc ;==>_IniReadFromString

 

By the way, think twice before replying in all caps when someone is trying to help you.  The next time you do it, don't be surprised if you get no replies.   :naughty:
