Need Help With Something Simple

3 posts in this topic

I am sure this is something really simple for the most of you but I seem to be stuck. I am using as a base (although I understand it now) one of the examples for notepad. I can get the script to save in the last place the user saved, but would like it saved to the D drive. Any help you folks can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Run("notepad.exe")

WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")

Send("For version 6.0.1")

Sleep(500)

Send("+{UP 2}")

Sleep(500)

Send("!f")

Send("x")

WinWaitActive("Notepad", "Yes")

Send("y")

Send("6.01.txt")

#FileSaveDialog("6.01", "$d")

Sleep(1000)

Send("!s")

WinWaitClose("Untitled - Notepad")

I am thinking that it is something to do with filesavedialog but I cant seem to get it right. Thanks again.

It works fine here, but you will need to specify the full directory to save to.

Try this instead:

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
Send("For version 6.0.1")
Sleep(500)
Send("+{UP 2}")
Sleep(500)
Send("!f")
Send("x")
WinWaitActive("Notepad", "Yes")
Send("y")
Send("D:\6.01.txt")
#FileSaveDialog("6.01", "$d")
Sleep(1000)
Send("!s")
WinWaitClose("Untitled - Notepad")

and it will save to the D drive instead of in the last directory.

Who else would I be?
