FileOpen newbness

9 posts in this topic

Hi!

I'm working with FileOpen

The path is correct because a FileExists returns 1 and a msgbox with it returns the correct path

FileOpen does not open the file.

I have a feeling its some dumb newb error

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

;Initialize variables
Global $GUIWidth
Global $GUIHeight

$GUIWidth = 300
$GUIHeight = 250

;Create window
GUICreate("New GUI", $GUIWidth, $GUIHeight)


$Combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Choose", 10, 10, 280, 190)
$OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 75, 210, 70, 25)
$Cancel = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 165, 210, 70, 25)
$wap = GUICtrlCreateRadio("choose A",10,50,200)
GUICtrlCreateRadio("or B",10,75,200)

$data = GUICtrlSetData($Combo,"wert|yuiop")


GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


While 1
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()

   Select
      Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
       ;Destroy the GUI including the controls
         GUIDelete()
         Exit
         
    ;Check if user clicked on the "OK" button
      Case $msg = $OK
        $f2 = GUICtrlRead($Combo)  
        $w1 = GUICtrlRead($wap)
        If $w1 = $GUI_CHECKED Then
            $f1 = "\w_"
        Else
            $f1 = "\m_"
            endif
            

$file = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & $f1 & $f2 & ".txt",0) 

      Case $msg = $Cancel
         ExitLoop
        $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
   EndSelect

WEnd

Uh... how do I say that?

FileOpen is not for that kind of opening the file...

FileOpen opens the file internally for writting to it. What you want to do is to open the file in Notepad.

Try using:

$FileName = @ScriptDir & $f1 & $f2 & ".txt"
Run(@COMSPEC & " /c START " & $FileName, "", @SW_HIDE)

This may help with your understanding of FileOpen() use some more.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

;Initialize variables
Global $GUIWidth
Global $GUIHeight

$GUIWidth = 300
$GUIHeight = 250

;Create window
GUICreate("New GUI", $GUIWidth, $GUIHeight)

$Combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Choose", 10, 10, 280, 190)
$OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 75, 210, 70, 25)
$Cancel = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 165, 210, 70, 25)
$wap = GUICtrlCreateRadio("choose A", 10, 50, 200)
GUICtrlCreateRadio("or B", 10, 75, 200)

$data = GUICtrlSetData($Combo, "wert|yuiop")

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()

    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ;Destroy the GUI including the controls
            GUIDelete()
            Exit

            ;Check if user clicked on the "OK" button
        Case $msg = $OK
            $f2 = GUICtrlRead($Combo)
            $w1 = GUICtrlRead($wap)
            If $w1 = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                $f1 = "\w_"
            Else
                $f1 = "\m_"
            EndIf
            $file = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & $f1 & $f2 & ".txt", 0)
            If $file <> -1 Then
                ; read something with $file handle
                ; ...
                FileClose($file); Close the handle
            Else
                MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, 'FileOpen Error')
            EndIf
            
        Case $msg = $Cancel
            ExitLoop
            $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    EndSelect

WEnd

Try using:

$FileName = @ScriptDir & $f1 & $f2 & ".txt"
Run(@COMSPEC & " /c START " & $FileName, "", @SW_HIDE)
I got it to open with '"' around the fiilename

but all it does is pop up sa command prompt with the correct path.

these are simple txt files...is there no easy way to open them?

Are you sure that a command promtp appears? Becaus @SW_HIDE is there just to make sure it doesn't.

Anyway, there is an alternative way:

Run('"notepad.exe" "' & $FineName & '"')

yep, the command window stayed open

tried the run(notepad) thing....it opened notepad but it said it couldnt find the file would you like to create it instead

instead of opening a file

is there a relatively easy way to dump the contents of a txt file into say, a message box.

it it seems fileread() and filereadline() only do 1 character or line.

can you dump the WHOLE file into a variable?

Then the file simply didn't exist and you didn't set $FineName to an already existing file.

Not important at this point though, as the following quote shows that this isn't what you want.

it it seems fileread() and filereadline() only do 1 character or line.

Look at the last parameter for FileRead. Do a FileOpen, FileRead and then FileClose.

Read properly about these functions in the helpfile and you will make it.
