reading a text file, and adding information

7 posts in this topic

Simple problem, but not sure on how to solve it...

I have a text file. Just a few lines, but it will be edited from tile to time. I need to read each line in it, and add a "<br>" at the end of it. If the line is blank, a "<BR>" will be added.

Example:

This is the first line<br>

<br>

This is the third line<br>

THis is the forth line<br>

What I'm working with is a addin for the AutoIt helpfile. The section that allows for the adding of comments is done through notepad. The problem is the Windows helpfile viewer reads in HTML, and notepad is text based. I can add the "<br>" by hand each time I make a entry, but it be nice to have the script do it for me.

The section of code that makes the comment box:

Func _CreateComment($s_FuncName)
    ; Create a new element to hold the codebox
    $oComment = $oIE.document.createElement ("")
   
    ; Gather previous comments if they exist
    $sCommentFile = $sCommentPath & $s_FuncName & ".txt"
    $sFuncComment = FileRead($sCommentFile)
    
    If @error Then $sFuncComment = ""
   
    ; Build the HTML for the commentbox
    If Not IsObj($oComment) Then Return 0
    $sHTML = ''
    $sHTML &= '<p><b>Comment</b></p>'
    $sHTML &= '<p class="codebox">'
    $sHTML &= '<br>'
    $sHTML &= '<font face="Comic Sans MS" size="2">' & $sFuncComment & '</font>'
    $sHTML &= '<br><br>'
    $sHTML &= '<OBJECT id=hhctrl type="application/x-oleobject" classid="clsid:adb880a6-d8ff-11cf-9377-00aa003b7a11" width=58 height=57>'
    $sHTML &= '<PARAM name="Command" value="ShortCut">'
    $sHTML &= '<PARAM name="Button" value="Text:Add Comment">'
    $sHTML &= '<PARAM name="Item1" value=",Examples\HelpFile\Comments\' & $s_FuncName & '.txt,">'
    $sHTML &= '</OBJECT>'
    With $oComment
        .innerHTML = $sHTML
    EndWith
   
    ; Insert the commentbox after the codebox
    If Not IsObj($oParent) Then Return 0
    $oParent.insertAdjacentElement ("afterEnd", $oComment)
   
    Return 1
EndFunc   ;==>_CreateComment

I'm now ran into another problem, and this one is a real head scratcher. The script will make a several buttons to allow for the creation of custom scripts. The problem I'm having is to change the font in the button. Since I'm dealing with HTML, I thought a simple <B> would do it. For some reason, it isn't working. I tried GUICtrlSetFont, and that didn't work either

Func _CreateExample2($s_FuncName)
    ; Create a new element to hold the button
    $oButton3 = $oIE.document.createElement ("")
   
    ; Build the HTML for the button
    ;$font="Comic Sans MS"   ;didn't work
    ;$s_FuncName1 = GUICtrlSetFont ($s_FuncName,9, 500, 2, $font)   ;didn't work
    If Not IsObj($oButton3) Then Return 0
    $sHTML = "&nbsp;"
    $sHTML &= '<OBJECT id=hhctrl type="application/x-oleobject" classid="clsid:adb880a6-d8ff-11cf-9377-00aa003b7a11" width=80 height=57>'
    $sHTML &= '<PARAM name="Command" value="ShortCut">'
    $sHTML &= '<PARAM name="Button" value="Text:Open ' & $s_FuncName & ' Custom Scripts folder">'
    ;$sHTML &= '<PARAM name="Button" value="Text:Open ' & $s_FuncName1 & ' Custom Scripts folder">'    ;didn't work
    ;$sHTML &= '<PARAM name="Button" value="Text:Open <B>' & $s_FuncName & '</b> Custom Scripts folder">'   ;didn't work
    $sHTML &= '<PARAM name="Item1" value=",Examples\HelpFile\Examples\' & $s_FuncName & '\,">'
    $sHTML &= '</OBJECT>'
    With $oButton3
        .innerHTML = $sHTML
    EndWith
    ; Insert the button as the next child of the codebox
    If Not IsObj($oParent) Then Return 0
    $oParent.appendChild ($oButton3)
   
    Return 1
EndFunc   ;==>_CreateExample2

Since this is a resistered object rather than an HTML button you are completely at the mercy of what the code in hhctrl.ocx does to what you pass to it in the PARAM. If <b> doesn't get rendered, you might try CSS, but it is unlikely that it will work either.
