Noob needs help ! my first AutoIT script

6 posts in this topic

Right I am a totally new user to AutoIT and I would like to know if my idea is possible..

I would like to create a simple GUI with a input box and a search button. When the search button is pressed it will call a dos command line program to search a text file with the input string. Then output the results into a large box under the search dialog. From what I can see it may be possible but I want to know for sure. Does AutoIT have a way of searching txt files with a string itself?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Yes, very possible. AutoIt has some very good string handling functions with easy to use File reading and writing options. You can also run commandline tools with Stdout to show results.

You have a green flag for go. :whistle:

StdOutRead to be exact. FileOpen, FileWrite, FileWriteLine, FileRead, FileReadline, FileClose and all the String* functions needed.

Hope you are good enough for this size of task. I would not rate it high, but for someone new, well, do what you know and grow and learn as your able to.
