I'm Learning :) Can This Be Done ?

9 posts in this topic

I have this code I found in the readme .

$file = FileOpen("willthiswork.doc", 1)

; Check if file opened for writing OK
If $file = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
    Exit
EndIf

FileWriteLine($file, "Line1")
FileWriteLine($file, "Line2" & @CRLF)
FileWriteLine($file, "Line3")
FileClose($file)

So it will make a doc for me but how would you make it everytime you say click a button the make the doc it adds a new number on the end of it ?

So it would be willthiswork1.doc ,willthiswork2.doc etc ..

And I guess it would need to keep some info in the reg so if you restart it and would start from the last number .

You would need to set the filename using a loop something like this:

$x = 1
While 1
$file = "C:\path\willthiswork" & $x & ".doc"
if fileexists("C:\path\willthiswork" & $x & ".doc") then
$x = $x + 1
continueloop
else
exitloop
wend
rest of script using $file where appropriate

This assumes that all the *.docs are in the same folder.

I was trying to think of how to tell him how to do that... thanks!

thanks Valik, and funny enough, it's a play on words... 'cause looking at the helpfile does nothing for you (unless you're conducting some sort of survey of uses of the question mark in modern society, or maybe have a thing for slightly suggestivly shapped yellow things) it's looking in the helpfile, or reading and comprehending the helpfile that's really needed. (and that can be tough, I know.)

Looking at the help file is the first step to looking in the help file, though.
