How to 1) Create a file 2) Delete everything in a .txt file?

8 posts in this topic

Hello,

How do I generate file? I was searching for a function like FileCreate() but can't find one. Also, if I have a text file, how can I delete everything inside without like going through notepad or a similar program.?

-Thank you for your help

Thank You, but is it not in the documentation? I searched it like a hundred times for "Create" command and didn't see that.

It's in the documentation for 3.2.xx versions of AutoIt.

FileOpen() is the answer to both of your questions though.

You don't even need FileOpen to create an empty file,

FileWrite(@DesktopDir & "\My_File.txt","")
