Need help with MsgBox function

6 posts in this topic

I'm trying to assign the result of a FileRead function to a variable and then use that variable in the MsgBox function. I want the contents of the variable to be displayed as the "text" parameter but each time I run the script, the message box is blank. Any ideas? Here is my code:

$result = FileRead("c:\autoit\checkinstalledfiles.log") -->I want to read the entire contents of the file, only 7 lines.

MsgBox(0, "Results", $result)

Your logfile is probably using UNICODE characters?

You can convert it by doing something like RunWait(@comspec & " /c type c:\autoit\checkinstalledfiles.log > newfile.log")

Then read the newfile.log..

Ok, I'll give that a try. Thanks!

Perhaps you are looking for something like this:

$Result = FileReadLine("FileHere.txt", 1)
Msgbox(0,"",$Result)

(UNTESTED)

also try Msgbox(0,"Results"," " & $Result)

i think you might need the ampersand to include a variable... not absolutly sure though

Nah, my way works perfectly fine, just be sure to have a correct readable path.
