Help with FileSelectFolder

8 posts in this topic

Hi All,

Man I wish I knew what I was goin'... See I'm a REAL newbie to this scripting thig and I'm tryin' to mod this code and trap this nasty error, glitch, etc., whatever it is. If you cancel the routine (FileSelectFolder) it returns an @error 1, ok I got that. But then it clears the path ($location) and if the user then presses "Start Search", script hangs for a while then searches the C Drive (I think... somethin' like that...) But what I need it to do, is return to a previous state before the user even launched that routine... with me? Anyway if someone, anyone could PUSH me in the right direction, I'd most likely name my first born after ya...

Oh, BTW, please ignore commects in code, (there only there to help me out with what is happenen.)

Thanks a ton in advance!

I'm not sure I understand your question exactly, but you can read the data from a control and save it to a variable, then set the data back to the control later. Is that anything like what you meant? :lmao:

Thanks for the reply PsaltyDS,

I'm not really sure... I'm VERY new to scripting. I have some experience with Basic (remember that old dog) and was at one time "ok" with batch. This script is pretty much what I need it to do except, (I'm a Land Surveyor, the guys I work with are not the sharpest tools in the shed), I need the script to "goto" start "If" the user presses the "Cancel" button during the FileSelectFolder routine,

(BTW, How do you insert "Code" here?)

Case $msg = $browse_btn

$find_loc = FileSelectFolder("Choose a folder.", "")

GUICtrlSetData($location, $find_loc)

But instead, FileSelectFolder, clears the path and (that's not a problem yet), If the user then presses the search button, the script hangs for a min. or so then searches the entire drive. I just want the script to go back to "start of script" or whatever (like they never pressed anything).

BTW, I Like bangin' my head against the wall because it feels Sooooo good when I stop.

The help doesn't really explain (and I'm NO programmer) how to deal with this.

Pleeeeeze, help a brother out...

Thanks!

This is the line in your script that makes it search the whole drive:

If StringRight($Temp_Dir, 1) <> "\" Then $Temp_Dir = $Temp_Dir & "\"

That line makes sure any path entered will start with a backslash, so if the path is blank, you wind up with just "\".

The path is initialized by this line:

$location = GUICtrlCreateInput("C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Examples", 30, 100, 200, 20, $ES_READONLY)

I would change that like this:

$InitialLoc = "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Examples"
$location = GUICtrlCreateInput($InitialLoc, 30, 100, 200, 20, $ES_READONLY)

That way you have the default path saved as $InitialLoc to put back later. Add a line before the first one I mentioned to put the default path back if it's blank:

If $Temp_Dir = "" Then $Temp_Dir = $InitialLoc
    If StringRight($Temp_Dir, 1) <> "\" Then $Temp_Dir = $Temp_Dir & "\"

When editing messages on this board, the code boxes are created by highlighting text and then click the "#" icon above the edit box.

Hope that helps! :lmao:
