Changing values in INI file

Recommended Posts

When I create my INI file, how would I be able to search for "02=Cat" and change Cat to a specific kind like "02=Maine Coon Cat"? Being able to change whatever would be in section [02=]

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

; -------- Create ini file -----------
FileWrite("Search.ini", _
        "[Search Animals]" & @CRLF & _
        "IGNORE_ERRORS=0" & @CRLF & _
        "01=Dog" & @CRLF & _
        "02=Cat" & @CRLF & _
        "03=Bird" & @CRLF & _
; ------ End of Create ini file ------


FileDelete("Search.ini") ; Tidy up

Func _read()
    Local Const $hostfile = "Search.ini"
    $var = IniReadSection($hostfile, "Search Animals")
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(4096, "Error", "Unable to read section.")
        For $number = 1 To $var[0][0]
            ; MsgBox(4096, "", "Key: " & $var[$i][0] & @CRLF & "Value: " & $var[$number][1])
            If $var[$number][1] == "Cat" Then
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Search", "The " & $var[$number][1] & " was found at " & $var[$number][0], 5)
                ExitLoop ; Exits For - Next loop (stops) when search value, "Cat", is found?
    _ArrayDisplay($var, "Search Animals")
EndFunc   ;==>_read

IniReadSectionNames will give you all sections of an ini file

IniReadSection will give you all keys of an ini section.

You just need to loop thru those 2 arrays and find the one you are looking for.
