How do I open an .ini script so I can edit it.

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make a script that will open a .ini script, then it will wait untill i close it. Then the script will open a different script that i need to edit and it will wait untill the script is closed. Then it will install a file to a directory.

I KNOW HOW TO DO EVERYTHING EXCEPT OPEN A .INI FOR EDITING!!! It can not be the run function because i have to use @ScriptDir which won't work with Run.

umm... an INI file is not a script, but if u want to edit one right click > open with > notepad...lookup




in the helpfile

or to open one with autoit use

$file = @ScriptDir & "\settings.ini"
$file = FileGetShortName($file)
Run(@comspec & " /c start " & $file, '', @SW_HIDE)

--hope this helps

here's the answer to part of your question

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
;Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1)
;************ NOTES START ************

;************ NOTES END **************
$INIPATH = @ScriptDir & "\test.ini"

GUICreate("", 200, 230, -1, -1, $WS_DLGFRAME, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)
GUISetFont(11, 690)
$OPEN = GUICtrlCreateButton("Open ini", 10, 160, 80, 25)
$CANC = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 110, 160, 80, 25)

While 1
    $MSG = GUIGetMsg()
        Case $MSG = $CANC
        Case $MSG = $OPEN
                Run("C:\Windows\Notepad.exe" & " " & $INIPATH)
                If Not WinWaitActive("test.ini - Notepad", "", 5) Then Exit
                If Not WinWaitClose("test.ini - Notepad", "", 300) Then Exit
                If @Compiled = 1 Then
                    Run( FileGetShortName(@ScriptFullPath))
                    Run( FileGetShortName(@AutoItExe) & " " & FileGetShortName(@ScriptFullPath))

what about making a do until loop with checking if it was closed?

dont forget to make sth like sleep(10) else it would blow your CPU!

like Valuater said use runwait, but if you'll look at this line

If Not WinWaitClose("test.ini - Notepad", "", 300) Then Exit

it is waiting for test.ini to close (300=5 min) you don't need the timeout option.

WinWaitClose("test.ini - Notepad")

will wait foreever

have you tried the script i provided to see how it works ?

make up a test ini
