Hello, I am wondering how could I make a script to retrieve all of my firends names on msn for example,

*like this*

vicks

*Not like this*

vicks@hotmail.com

I only would like it to get there display name not there actually email address.

ok i was also wondering if this is possable

$Window = IniRead("Friends list.ini", "Friends", "1", "NotFound")

IniRead("Friends list.ini", "Friends", "2", "NotFound")

IniRead("Friends list.ini", "Friends", "3", "NotFound")

i want $Window to read all of the inireads is this possable i hope so :P

Why Iniread? Why not just read the file sequentially and get whatever you need out from it? Try stringsplit in the help file to break up the user name.

You've been a member long enough I think that you know that if you want help with "string" manipulation, that you look in the helpfile under "String"!??

$Name = 'vicks@hotmail.com'
$aSplitName = StringSplit($Name, '@')
MsgBox(64, 'Info', $aSplitName[1])

Edit:

!!! And I also showed you how to get all the names!! (IniReadSection())

I'm "wrong".. then show me the right way...!

Edit:

Wait, you're right... this is probably what your looking for:

$NameIWant = 'vicks'
$NameThatIsOutThere = 'vicks@hotmail.com'
$SoYourADumbAssSoWhat = StringSplit($NameThatIsOutThere, '@')
MsgBox(64, 'Info', 'So what you are saying is this is not the right output that you are looking for? >>>> ' & $SoYourADumbAssSoWhat[1] & ' ???')
Right? Edited by SmOke_N

if i have offened you by saying your wrong im sorry but please do not be a dick about it. but you must of not heard me correctly, in Msn i want peoples display names if you remove @hotmail.com that doesn't make it a Display name, msn lets your set your personal Display name, do you see were im going with this now :nuke:

if you have msn open it, and check if your friends have display names it could look like this "Yo Spot me 20grams homey" :P anyways i want to make a script that opens msn and wirtes down each persons display name

No what pisses me off ... (yeah I said pisses)... Is you ask one question, you get the "right/correct/only" answer, but... you have a hidden meaning in your question, although the answer is "exactly" what you asked, you were hoping to get something else.
