Problem with FileSelectFolder

4 posts in this topic

Hi!

I'm unable to copy a dir when I use the FileSelectFolder.

For example:

;$path1 = FileSelectFolder("Choose parent folder", "", 1)
$path2 = "C:\New Folder"
;if $path1 == $path2 Then
;   MsgBox(1, "..", "ok")
;endif
DirCopy(@ScriptDir&"\ThisDir", $path1)

If I use $path2 and comment the FileSelectFolder, the files are copied.

But if I use $path1 (with a path equal to $path2) and uncomment the FileSelectFolder line, the files aren't copied..

Any guesses?

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks!

Try this one

;$path1 = FileSelectFolder("Choose parent folder", "", 1)
$path2 = "C:\New Folder"
;if $path1 == $path2 Then
;    MsgBox(1, "..", "ok")
;endif
$a = DirCopy(@ScriptDir&"\ThisDir", $path2)
If $a = 0 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Warning", "A error occured copying directory")
EndIf

and tell me if a error occurs. With me it does.

if I use path1 and choose the folder "New Folder", I get an error too..

But with path2 it works ok...

Try this:

$path1 = FileSelectFolder("Choose parent folder", "", 1)
Msgbox(0,"The folder you selected was:",$path1)
$path2 = "C:\New Folder"
Msgbox(0,"These should be equal:",'"' & $path1 & '" = "' &  $path2 & '"')
If $path1 = $path2 Then
    MsgBox(1, "..", "ok")
Endif
DirCopy(@ScriptDir&"\ThisDir", $path1)

In autoit If-Then and other statements similar to that can be in capitol letters(unlike C++ and such). In addition, when doing a string comparison, you want to use a single = sign and not a double ==. The reason for this is because a == means that the literal strings have to match and have the same case. A single quote means that the strings have to match but it isn't case sensitive. I think your problem might be that the strings didn't match in case.
