View/edit Ini Files

14 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

This is a script that I've created for one of my programs so that a user unfimiliar with INI files could change the values. This is my first contribution to the site so be gentle. I made it for my needs but see no reason in adding to it. Any recommendations would be great! It will work for any* INI file.

*Known problem: It crashes when creating the treeview for a LARGE ini that consists of 2K sections. Help solving that would be great also.

Beta is needed.

So someone did a treeview for one!

Well... look at by (n00bish) one in my sig: Under UDFs : _DialogEditIni()

#)

I like that, never thought about the adding, removing sections, and a save as. I think yours might intimidate some of my coworkers, lol.

i used this

_DialogEditIni(@ScriptDir & "\lang.lng")

for one

and..

_EditIniDialog(@ScriptDir & "\lang.lng")

for the other

i got all kinds of errors

example

from posted code 
ElseIf $msg == $SectionDelButton Or $msg == $SectionDelButton Or _
                        $msg == $SectionEdiButton Or $msg == $PairNewButton Or _
                        $msg == $PairDelButton Or $msg == $PairEdiButton Or $msg == $SaveSavButton
                    MsgBox(262160, $EIDtitle & " - Error", "You are in (Read-Only) Mode." & @CRLF & "You are not allowed to edit the data")

there is no "Then"

Hi.

I dont know if anyone can help me. But when I tried to use this script. It did everything fine but edit the ini file. It came up with the error

"Subscript used with non-Array variable."

If ($advmsg[0] == 0) Then

If ($advmsg^ ERROR

It seems to stop on this line. Any ideas?

I think it's because of this:

$advmsg = GUICtrlRead($item, 1); Get advanced infos about the treeview item
                If ($advmsg[0] == 0) Then 
                     ; ...
                EndIf

I don't think GuiCtrlRead() ever returns an array, even for advanced mode. So the array reference is inappropriate. In this code, $item is the control ID of a TreeViewItem, and GuiCtrlRead($item, 1) returns the text of $item.

:)
