@macro in $vars

16 posts in this topic

Hi,

I want to build a config.ini which stores all the pathes to the files used in the script, so that everybody can easily change the GUI.

This is a test script. The problem is, I don't know how to write the path with a macro into the config.ini that it still works. :">

;ExpandVarsTest

Opt("GUICloseOnESC",1)

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Opt("ExpandVarStrings", 0) 

Global $configArray = IniReadSection(@ScriptDir & "\config.ini", "config")
If @error Then MsgBox(4096, "", "Error occured, probably no language.ini file.")
MsgBox(0,"",$configArray[1][1])

Opt("ExpandVarStrings", 1) 

$GUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 300, 50, 50)
GUICtrlCreatePic($configArray[1][1], 0, 50, 500, 300)
;GUICtrlCreatePic($configArray[2][1], 0, 50, 500, 300) ;works

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $GUI)

do
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

INI-File.

[config]
path=@scriptDir & \Moon7.gif
path=c:\Downloads\AutoIt-Skripte\Entwicklung\images\Moon7.gif

So long,

eval maby ?

HI,

you mean something like:

GUICtrlCreatePic(Eval($configArray[1][1]), 0, 50, 500, 300)

Hmmh, still doesn't work. :)

Its not working completely but maybe you can work it out that it works completely :)

Hi,

thanks for your try. I already tested several things, but I didn't work. :( Maybe it isn't possible to use a macro in a $var. :)

This way it works :)

Yes but just that code looked like it should be used with the code from first post in this thread. :)

At the end of the day it's pure coincedence that the "macro" used in the ini is the same as the AutoIt "macro". It could just as easily be %AppDir%, or {RunDir}, or ^foo, or whatever you like.

And then you could just call them "tokens", and be done with it!

HI,

thanks! This way it works for @ScriptDir, but it is still a long way round. I thought this : Opt("ExpandVarStrings", 1) should solve the porblem without the StringReplace, but it doesn't. :)

Opt("GUICloseOnESC",1)
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Global $folder = @ScriptDir
Global $configArray = IniReadSection($folder & "\config.ini", "config")
$keys = StringReplace($configArray[1][1], "@ScriptDir" , $folder)
If @error Then MsgBox(4096, "", "Error occured, probably no language.ini file.")
$GUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 300, 50, 50)
GUICtrlCreatePic($keys, 0, 50, 500, 300)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $GUI)

do
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Nevertheless, thanks - but I don't like this solution.

So long,

Mega

You need to double up in the @ symbol to expand vars.

Helpfile: ExpandEnvStrings. :)

Um, okay. I think my English is too bad to get it the way it was meant. I understood it like this: if I expand the macro etc. and I still want to use a @ or & then I have to double it like @@ or $$ but I didn't ever think of surrounding the part of the macro. :">
