Issues with file path and ini

Recommended Posts

I want to set the path to a file and write it in an ini file. The way I want to do it is something like:

$var = FileSelectFolder( "Choose a name.", "C:\", "(*)")
IniWrite("Mix.ini", 'File', 'FilePath', $var)

With that, once the folder is selected, the path automatically writes to the ini. I can't figure out how to do that with a regular .exe file. I've tried the FileSaveDialog and FileOpenDialog, but they don't seem to work; I can get the path to show if I throw up a message box, but the path wont write to the ini.

Help please.

look at the folder of the selected file.

I has been discussed already, here :http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=27623&hl=


$var = FileOpenDialog("Choose File", "c:\", "All (*.*)", 1+2)
IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\Mix.ini", 'File', 'FilePath', $var)

So long,

Thanks for the direction, however @scriptdir doesn't work, only the full path. But that helped me build a solution that solved my problem.
