How To Search An Ini For Name

Recommended Posts

BigDaddyO

I am trying to search a listing in an INI file to see if it matches what is being pulled from a comptuer.

I have a pretty long list of hard drive volume labels and what I want to do is the DriveGetLabel and then check the return to see if it matches what is in the list in the INI.

I currently have $Volume = DriveGetLabel("C:\")

I figure I have do do a While statement or something like that if $Volume = INIREAD info. but I just can't seem to figure it out.


hmm... I guess I have to have a signature...

In this example if the volume name is Data or program it will return FOUND:

$Volume = DriveGetLabel("C:\") 
If IniRead('label.ini','drivelabels',$Volume,'???') = '???' Then
   msgbox(0,'drivelabel', 'label:'& $Volume & ' not found') 
Else
   msgbox(0,'drivelabel', 'label:'& $Volume & ' found') 
EndIf

File label.ini

[drivelabels]data=y

program=y

That worked great. I never really looked that closely at the default section of the iniRead.

Thanks
