Ini Get Section Key And Value


Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

A bored thing again, it will return a 3 dimenisional array of all the sections / keys for the sections / and values for keys.

For $i = 1 To 6
    IniWrite(@DesktopDir & '\MyIniTest.ini', "section 1", "Key" & $i, "val" & $i)
Next
For $i = 1 To 3
    IniWrite(@DesktopDir & '\MyIniTest.ini', "section 2", "Key" & $i, "val" & $i)
Next
Global $IniInfo = _IniGetSKV(@DesktopDir & '\MyIniTest.ini')
_ArrayIniDisplay($IniInfo, 'IniInfo')
Func _IniGetSKV($hIniLocation)
    ;Get All Sections
    Local $aSections = IniReadSectionNames($hIniLocation)
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    ;Get All The Keys and Values for Each section
    Local $aKeyValues[$aSections[0] + 1][1][3], $nCount;Added $nCount
    For $iCount = 1 To $aSections[0]
        $aKV = IniReadSection($hIniLocation, $aSections[$iCount])
        If @error Then ; If empty section then only get name
            $aKeyValues[$iCount][0][0] = 0
            $aKeyValues[$iCount][1][0] = $aSections[$iCount]
            ContinueLoop
        EndIf
        If $nCount < $aKV[0][0] Then;Added this condition statement
            $nCount = $aKV[0][0]
            ReDim $aKeyValues[$aSections[0] + 1][$aKV[0][0] + 1][3]
        EndIf
        $aKeyValues[$iCount][0][0] = $aKV[0][0];Added this
        For $xCount = 1 To $aKV[0][0]
            $aKeyValues[$iCount][$xCount][0] = $aSections[$iCount]
            $aKeyValues[$iCount][$xCount][1] = $aKV[$xCount][0]
            $aKeyValues[$iCount][$xCount][2] = $aKV[$xCount][1]
        Next
    Next
    $aKeyValues[0][0][0] = $aSections[0]
    Return $aKeyValues ;Return a 3 Dimensional Array
EndFunc   ;==>_IniGetSKV


Func _ArrayIniDisplay($aArray, $sTitle = '')
    If Not IsArray($aArray) Then SetError(1, 0, 0)
    Local $sIni = '[0][0][0] = ' & $aArray[0][0][0] & ' Sections' & @CR
    For $xCC = 1 To $aArray[0][0][0]
        $sIni &= @CR & '[' & $xCC & '][0][0] = ' & $aArray[$xCC][0][0] & ' Keys/Values' & @CR & _
            '[' & $xCC & '][1][0] = ' & $aArray[$xCC][1][0] & @CR ; Get section name from first line
        For $aCC = 1 To $aArray[$xCC][0][0]
            $sIni &= '[' & $xCC & '][' & $aCC & '][1] = ' & $aArray[$xCC][$aCC][1] & @CR & _
                '[' & $xCC & '][' & $aCC & '][2] = ' & $aArray[$xCC][$aCC][2] & @CR
        Next
    Next
    MsgBox(0, $sTitle, StringTrimRight($sIni, 1))
EndFunc

Edit:

Added $aKeyValues[0][0][0] = Ubound($aKeyValues, 1) - 1 for Cue

Edit:

Updated with Dickb's additions for checking for "blank" sections.

Changed the way the return was, it wasn't returning all the elements correctly.

Also added an _ArrayIniDisplay() for this specifically so you can view and or trouble shoot if need be.

Intriguing... care to post your example file?

If you run the above, it will make an example file :lmao:

Made two changes to fix bugs

  • _IniGetSKV - handle empry sections
  • _ArrayIniDisplay - display section name when only one key/value
Global $IniInfo = _IniGetSKV(@ScriptDir & '\x.ini')
_ArrayIniDisplay($IniInfo, 'IniInfo')
Func _IniGetSKV($hIniLocation)
    ;Get All Sections
    Local $aSections = IniReadSectionNames($hIniLocation)
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    ;Get All The Keys and Values for Each section
    Local $aKeyValues[$aSections[0] + 1][1][3], $nCount;Added $nCount
    For $iCount = 1 To $aSections[0]
        $aKV = IniReadSection($hIniLocation, $aSections[$iCount])
        If @error Then ; If empty section then only get name
            $aKeyValues[$iCount][0][0] = 0
            $aKeyValues[$iCount][1][0] = $aSections[$iCount]
            ContinueLoop
        EndIf
        If $nCount < $aKV[0][0] Then;Added this condition statement
            $nCount = $aKV[0][0]
            ReDim $aKeyValues[$aSections[0] + 1][$aKV[0][0] + 1][3]
        EndIf
        $aKeyValues[$iCount][0][0] = $aKV[0][0];Added this
        For $xCount = 1 To $aKV[0][0]
            $aKeyValues[$iCount][$xCount][0] = $aSections[$iCount]
            $aKeyValues[$iCount][$xCount][1] = $aKV[$xCount][0]
            $aKeyValues[$iCount][$xCount][2] = $aKV[$xCount][1]
        Next
    Next
    $aKeyValues[0][0][0] = $aSections[0]
    Return $aKeyValues ;Return a 3 Dimensional Array
EndFunc   ;==>_IniGetSKV


Func _ArrayIniDisplay($aArray, $sTitle = '')
    If Not IsArray($aArray) Then SetError(1, 0, 0)
    Local $sIni = '[0][0][0] = ' & $aArray[0][0][0] & ' Sections' & @CR
    For $xCC = 1 To $aArray[0][0][0]
        $sIni &= @CR & '[' & $xCC & '][0][0] = ' & $aArray[$xCC][0][0] & ' Keys/Values' & @CR & _
            '[' & $xCC & '][1][0] = ' & $aArray[$xCC][1][0] & @CR ; Get section name from first line
        For $aCC = 1 To $aArray[$xCC][0][0]
            $sIni &= '[' & $xCC & '][' & $aCC & '][1] = ' & $aArray[$xCC][$aCC][1] & @CR & _
                '[' & $xCC & '][' & $aCC & '][2] = ' & $aArray[$xCC][$aCC][2] & @CR
        Next
    Next
    MsgBox(0, $sTitle, StringTrimRight($sIni, 1))
EndFunc

Nice catch Dickb, I would have not thought of "empty" sections.

Well, I used an existing ini file with an empty section.

The program crashed and that gave me the idea that there might be something wrong :lmao:

And I like a challenge, so I came up with this solution.

btw, thanks for the routine. It is usefull for me.

I am not trying to hijack this thread, but this may be of interest, too...

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=26632 (post #4)

creates a dictionary with the prefix $dict_ (in the Global scope)

each $dict_ variable corresponds to a unique ini section, mapping it's keys to values

returns the number of dictionaries created (aka the number of sections in the ini file)

I'm not trying to hijack but here's the thread? :lmao: J/K :ph34r: but I've always found that line humorous.

There's an issue with yours I believe in the StringStripWs(), you alter the text return that way and don't get a true return. That should be a user option not hard coded IMHO.

But you can't have spaces in a variable name. If you had a section called [web browser settings], then the variable the script would try to create would be: $dict_web browser settings

Using StringStripWS it creates $dict_webbrowsersettings

My mistake John, I didn't look entirely at what you were doing :lmao:
