Inputbox hELP

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

How can I have a inputbox save the data the user puts in to create a folder on a server? For instance

InputBox ( "Backup Name", "Please type in name of backup Directory. For Example Jared's Backup 08/17/06", "Default" , "")

I want to be able to save what the users types in and create a folder with that name.

Thanks

$answer = InputBox ( "Backup Name", "Please type in name of backup Directory. For Example Jared's Backup 08/17/06", "Default" , "")

$folder = "\\server\share\backups\" & $answer

DirCreate($folder)

Great!! Thanks

Here is what I was using and worked GREAT, but I want the user to be able to have unique backup names for each person.

msgbox(1, "Backup", "Once Complete another Message will appear")

DirCreate("h:\backup\lotus\notes\data")

DirCreate("h:\backup\desktop")

DirCreate("h:\backup\favorites")

DirCreate("h:\backup\passport")

DirCreate("h:\backup\My Documents")

DirCreate("h:\backup\printers")

DirCreate("h:\backup\network-drives")

sleep(10000)

DirCopy(@MyDocumentsDir, "h:\backup\My Documents", 1)

DirCopy(@DesktopDir, "h:\backup\desktop", 1)

DirCopy(@FavoritesDir, "h:\backup\favorites", 1)

FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\notes.ini", "h:\backup\lotus\notes")

FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\*.nsf", "h:\backup\lotus\notes\data")

FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\archive\*.nsf", "h:\backup\lotus\notes\data\archive")

FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\mail\*.nsf", "h:\backup\lotus\notes\data\mail")

FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\*.id", "h:\backup\lotus\notes\data")

FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\*.dsk", "h:\backup\lotus\notes\data")

FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\*.ndk", "h:\backup\lotus\notes\data")

FileCopy("C:\program files\passport\*.kpd", "h:\backup\passport")

FileCopy("C:\program files\passport\*.mac", "h:\backup\passport")

FileCopy("C:\program files\passport\*.zcc", "h:\backup\passport")

FileCopy("C:\program files\passport\*.zws", "h:\backup\passport")

FileCopy("C:\program files\passport\*.*", "h:\backup\passport")

runwait(@comspec & " /c " & 'REGEDIT /E ' & 'h:\backup\network-drives\MappedDrives.reg

"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network\"', "" ,@SW_HIDE)

runwait(@comspec & " /c " & 'REGEDIT /E ' & 'h:\backup\printers\Printers.reg

"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Connections\"', "" ,@SW_HIDE)

SoundSetWaveVolume(99)

SoundPlay("C:\winxp\media\tada.wav", 1)

msgbox(1, "Backup", "Backup Complete")

What would be the best way to change all the h:\backup\ to $answer ?

You might get into trouble letting them set their own folder names. This modification sets a foldername based on their logged on name and the current date.

I haven't tested this, obviously, so be careful:

#Include <Date.au3>
$date = _NowCalcDate()
$date = stringreplace($date,"/","-")

$backupfolder = "h:\backup\"& @username & "\" & $date
DirCreate($backupfolder)

SplashTextOn ( "Backup", "Backing up your data to "&$backupfolder)


DirCreate($backupfolder & "\lotus\notes\data")
DirCreate($backupfolder & "\desktop")
DirCreate($backupfolder & "\favorites")
DirCreate($backupfolder & "\passport")
DirCreate($backupfolder & "\My Documents")
DirCreate($backupfolder & "\printers")
DirCreate($backupfolder & "\network-drives")
sleep(10000)
DirCopy(@MyDocumentsDir, $backupfolder & "\My Documents", 1)
DirCopy(@DesktopDir, $backupfolder & "\desktop", 1)
DirCopy(@FavoritesDir, $backupfolder & "\favorites", 1)
FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\notes.ini", $backupfolder & "\lotus\notes")
FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\*.nsf", $backupfolder & "\lotus\notes\data")
FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\archive\*.nsf", $backupfolder & "\lotus\notes\data\archive")
FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\mail\*.nsf", $backupfolder & "\lotus\notes\data\mail")
FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\*.id", $backupfolder & "\lotus\notes\data")
FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\*.dsk", $backupfolder & "\lotus\notes\data")
FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\*.ndk", $backupfolder & "\lotus\notes\data")
FileCopy("C:\program files\passport\*.kpd", $backupfolder & "\passport")
FileCopy("C:\program files\passport\*.mac", $backupfolder & "\passport")
FileCopy("C:\program files\passport\*.zcc", $backupfolder & "\passport")
FileCopy("C:\program files\passport\*.zws", $backupfolder & "\passport")
FileCopy("C:\program files\passport\*.*", $backupfolder & "\passport")
SplashOff()

runwait(@comspec & " /c " & 'REGEDIT /E ' & 'h:\backup\network-drives\MappedDrives.reg

"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network\"', "" ,@SW_HIDE)
runwait(@comspec & " /c " & 'REGEDIT /E ' & 'h:\backup\printers\Printers.reg

"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Connections\"', "" ,@SW_HIDE)

SoundSetWaveVolume(99)
SoundPlay("C:\winxp\media\tada.wav", 1)
msgbox(1, "Backup", "Backup Complete")

That might be dangerous, but just comment out the DirCreates and reverse the 2 parameters in the FileCopys

I really appreciate your help. Now when this runs,

runwait(@comspec & " /c " & 'REGEDIT /E ' & '$backupfolder & "\network-drives\MappedDrives.reg "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network\"', ""

,@SW_HIDE)

runwait(@comspec & " /c " & 'REGEDIT /E ' & '$backupfolder & "\printers\Printers.reg "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Connections\"', "" ,@SW_HIDE)

It creates a file on the Desktop. Any Ideas why? Thanks
