IniWrite - HELP

7 posts in this topic

Hi!

I think there is a BUG!!

Here is my code:

$var = FileOpenDialog("test", "C:\", "Dat Files (*.DAT)", 1)

IniWrite("PackUpdate.ini", "General", "PackPath", $var)

Result:

If I choose "cancel" - ini file created.

If I choose a file - ini file is NOT created :-(

Why????

Please help...

HI,

I tested it myself. You are right, it is a bit strange, that he doesn't create the ini-file when chosen a file.

Return code is 1 = success.

$var = FileOpenDialog("test", "C:\", "Dat Files (*.DAT)", 1)
MsgBox(0,"",$var)
MsgBox(0,"",IniWrite("PackUpdate.ini", "General", "PackPath", $var))

So long,

read the doc on FileOpenDialog

@WorkingDir is changed on successful return.

That the reason why the .ini file is created in the same directory as the choosen file.

I don't know why it was implemented this way but it is.

From a regression stand point this cannot be changed. :D

why not just pop this in ur script

#include <File.au3>
$var = FileOpenDialog("test", "C:\", "Dat Files (*.DAT)", 1)
If Not Fileexists("PackUpdate.ini") then
_Filecreate("PackUpdate.ini")
IniWrite("PackUpdate.ini", "General", "PackPath", $var)
Else
IniWrite("PackUpdate.ini", "General", "PackPath", $var)
Endif

Wouldn't that do the same thing, since you are not providing path for "PackUpdate.ini" and the FileOpenDialog() is still changing @WorkingDir? The issue as I understand it (but didn't test), is that the file is being created in an usexpected directory because @WorkingDir was modified.

:D
