Need Help

Recommended Posts

1. Create a variable (or string)

$var = ""

2. Prompt the user to type in a Serial Number. But if the user wants to exit, then the end the script. But if they want to continue to be able to. {Address this later or did you mean this as part of step 3.}

$var = InputBox("....

3. Verify if [a file with] that serial number [as part of the name] exist, if exist to prompt to over-write or to continue if it does not exist.

If FileExists("V:" & "\" & $var & ".log") Then......
{Let's say that the file did not exist, the script will continue to step 4.}

4. Take the serial number and create a file either .log or .txtr with that serial number.

$file = FileOpen("V:" & "\" & ($var) & ".log", 2)
FileClose($file)
{Okay, so at this point, the script has created a file - but it is empty - nothing to print.}

5. Then find the file and either open it with a notepad application, or send it directly to the printer.

$print = _FilePrint("V:" & "\" & $var & ".log")
If $print Then
    MsgBox(0, "Print", "The file was printed.")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Print", "Error: " & @error & @CRLF & "The file was not printed.")
EndIf
{It does not use Notepad - but it was the direction other members pointed you in. I've never used the UDF named _FilePrint and cannot test it right now. If you really want to use Notepad - (that will at least give you a page with the file title on it & file title contains serial number) ...if you want to do that, then post back and others can help with that.}

Add the FileClose($file) and the code below step 5 to the other code that I posted and see if it works as you desire.

I did not mean to criticize... just question.

Don't worry about it. Everything is good.

Now,

The _FilePrint does not work. It gives me the following error: Error: _FilePrit () : undefined fucntion.

Any ideas. Let me know.

Thanks everyone.

Take care.

You spelled _FilePrint() as _FilePrit() (forgot the 'n')


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

In the script the command is typed correctly. I was just typing the error message from the status window.

Copy and paste when you can. Use the AutoIt Window Info tool if need be.

@Others,

I'm not in a place where I can check, but is this fileprint UDF only in beta? (The system that I'm on has beta and production includes mixed up.)

include that near the bottom of your script

Edit2: If you include the func shown above, remove #include <file.au3> from the top part of your script.

I have tried the print function at home and it's working. It wouldn't work, but I notice that the $s_file was the wrong string. I changed it to $file and it worked. The final test will be done at work.

Everyone Thank you very much for putting up with and my crazy ideas and all the questions. I have learned so much and having a support group like this, is what makes someone proud and delighted.

Thank you all and have a great night. I need to merge two scripts and make it work. I will let you know how it goes.
