problem with a variable

Recommended Posts



I try to do a simple script: It should open all the pdf files in a folder, select all the text, copy it in the notepad and save this with the name of the pdf file.

For doing this I used the FileFindFirstFile.au3 from Valuater (thanks !!!) Nevertheless when I want to save the file, it always paste the same wrong truncated name of one of my pdf file. Would you have any idea, please?

Here is my script:

$search = FileFindFirstFile("*.pdf") ; file find first file of all files in the directory.

; Check if the search was successful.
If $search = -1 Then; if the variable, search equals negative one, then,
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "No files/directories matched the search pattern"); a message box will appear.
    Exit; and then exit the program.
EndIf; ends an, if, statement.

While 1; while, is a loop waiting for an action.
    $file = FileFindNextFile($search); finds the, next file, from the original search.
    $chemin = "L:\02 Lexique 3\01 Corpus\Metro\"
; Option j'ouvre Reader puis la fenĂȘtre d'ouverture de fichiers
    Run("C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe")
    WinWaitActive("Adobe Reader")
; Ouvre la fenĂȘtre de navigation
; Envoie le chemin du fichier
    WinWait("", "", 3)
; Attendre que ce soit fait 
    WinWait("", "", 10)
; Fermer Adobe Reader
; Se mettre dans notepad
    WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
; Colle
; Va dans le menu Fichier
    WinWait("", "", 3)
; Va sur Enregistrer sous
    Send("{DOWN 3}")
; Tape le nom du nouveau fichier
    WinWait("", "", 3)
; Valide le nom du fichier
; Ferme le notepad
    WinWait("", "", 10)
;MsgBox(4096, "File:", $file); message box to display the file that was found.
WEnd; returns to the while, loop.

; Close the search handle.

Thanks in advance,
