_FileWriteLog

3 posts in this topic

Hi all

Since the change to au3 I have real problems grasping the concept of "If" but not being able to use "goto". For example I want to check for the existence of a mapped drive and then create a log of users and PC names. I got so far but I keep getting an "if statement has no matching endif statement" error

It seems to be caused by the #include<file.au3>, what exactly does this do.

Is there somewhere I can get better information about using AutoIt3 other than the help files, they arent bad but a non-programmer like me needs more info

Here is the code I tried (its a simple routine, so why am I struggling)

If fileExists ("j:\read_ge.txt") then

#include <file.au3>

$sLogPath = "\\MyServer\MyDocs\mappeddrive.log"

_FileWriteLog($sLogPath , @username)

Else

EndIf

Exit

I know I'm probably a bit dense but there are several issues related to the lack of "goto" that I cant get my head round.

Any help is very much appreciated

Thanks

I empathize... getting used to GOTO gets you in a habbit of mind that makes it a pain to do it "right". I'm living proof that you can do it without being a rocket scientist, though. :D

You need to put your #Include statements at the very top of your script:

#include <file.au3>

If fileExists ("j:\read_ge.txt") then
   $sLogPath = "\\MyServer\MyDocs\mappeddrive.log"
   _FileWriteLog($sLogPath , @username)
EndIf

      MsgBox(32, "Test", "It is December, but it's not Christmas.")
   EndIf
Else
   MsgBox(32, "Test", "It is not December, so it's not Christmas.")
EndIf

:D

Hi psaltyDS

Thanks for this, I have used AutoIt2 for ages and write a lot of batch files so this AutoIt3 is a bit of a 'challenge' however I wont give up...it would be nice if there was a script editor like lkei used to make for AutoIt2 just to get started cos then you can see the proper syntax, or even a better user guide other than the help files.

Still ..battle on til I have pulled the last of my hair out :D

Thx again

(goto did used to make it really easy tho)
