I am trying to build a script to do the following:

     Open a program

     Input values that only has one changing variable

That's it. Since this is my first script with Autolt3 I am wanting to make sure what I am trying to do will work. I am using AutoItSetOption("SendKeyDelay",2000) to input a value.

The part I am trying to automate is one of the inputs is a file name and I need to do this to every file of the same extension and the following input needs to be the same name with the extension changed. Below are example inputs for what I am trying to automate.

 

0.05

2

example.iss

example.ssp

4

1

I want to run this program to input all of my .iss files (which I can put into a .txt list file if needed) and then change the extension to .ssp for the following input. 

I tested out the script and it runs perfectly for manually inputting the names for that input so it is just a loop function for this and I am unsure of how to set this up. 

Thanks!

You could use _FileListToArrayRec to capture all the files with the .iss extension, then when you paste just loop the array, using For $i = 1 To $aFileList[0] then use StringReplace($aFileList[$i], ".iss", ".ssp") and then send that to the program.  Its also better if you use ControlSend not Send.

Thank you for the suggestion I am trying this out now to see if it works!

I looked into the ControlSend and there are some issues with it and cmd programs according to the help menu.

@wbrokaw,

In stead of reporting the question you could have opted to answer is as it seems to be a pretty valid question...no?

@Jos,

As I do not see a way of editing the title of the post and to avoid reposting it seems rather rhetorical...no? I noticed I didn't update the title before hitting submit after it was submitted. 

So no, it does not seem like a pretty valid question when it is obviously wrong. In my original post I was going to make I thought that function might be what I needed but then after scouring the help I realized it wasn't and just forgot to update the title and someone else had already posted something that was useful for what I was doing so reposting didn't seem like it was worth it.
