.ini over multiple lines.

Recommended Posts

KillerSam

In my program I have a "notes section" which is an input box that has multiple lines.

I want it so the user can store these notes to a .ini file.

At the momment when they click the "store" button, all of the input boxes content is being stored but like so:

CODE

[Notes]

Notes=entryline1

entryline2

entryline3

This means that when I read the .ini with:

$note_input = GUICtrlCreateInput(IniRead("C:\WINDOWS\Temp\stored.ini","Notes","Notes",""),10, 230, 475,60, $style)

I hope that helps.

Edit: also:

$style = $ES_MULTILINE++$WS_VSCROLL++$ES_WANTRETURN

^^ I think thats the cause, the "return" key is forcing it to store them on seperate lines in the .ini.

Appologies for being so impatient but, anybody know what is wrong here?

This is the command I have to store my text in the .ini file.

IniWrite("C:\WINDOWS\Temp\stored.ini", "Notes", "Notes", GUICtrlRead($note_input))oÝ÷ Ûú®¢×«Þmµë-yØ­nëfº[b)Þu«Z~Ú½©nzf²mêkzÇ«½çb*.¦ëjº^±ªèºwbµ«­¢+Ø%¹¥]É¥Ñ ÅÕ½ÐíèÀäÈí]%9=]LÀäÈíQµÀÀäÈíÍѽɹ¥¹¤ÅÕ½Ðì°ÅÕ½Ðí9½ÑÌÅÕ½Ðì°ÅÕ½Ðí9½ÑÌÅÕ½Ðì°ÌäìÅÕ½ÐìÌäìµÀìU%

Nope, this does not work :shocked:.

The other option I guess is to have the script recognise each line individualy?

So then it can store in the ini as:

note1=ahaha

note2=gaegaega

note3=gagaga

depending on the line that is on, is this possible?

You could try substituting a special char sequence for each carriage return when you write each value and then substitute the carriage return for the special sequence when the value is read back.

$value = "This"&@CRLF&"is"&@CRLF&"MulitLine"
IniWrite ( "Test.ini", "Multi-Line","Multiline", StringReplace($value,@CRLF,"[\r\n]" ))
$value = StringReplace(IniRead("Test.ini", "Multi-Line","Multiline",""),"[\r\n]",@CRLF)
MsgBox(0,"test",$value)
Exit

Edit: Typed vhen instead of when.

Good tip. I hadn't come across the situation and didn't realize there was an issue with it. Might want to pick something less likely to occur in the normal data than a backslash that might be in every file path in the ini file:

$IniFile = @ScriptDir & "\Test.ini"
$String = "This is" & @CRLF & "a multiline" & @CRLF & "value."
IniWrite($IniFile, "Test", "Multiline", StringReplace($String, @CRLF, "<br>"))
$Result = StringReplace(IniRead($IniFile, "Test", "Multiline", ""), "<br>", @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("$Result = " & $Result & @LF)

:shocked:

$IniFile = @ScriptDir & "\Test.ini"
$String = "This is" & @CRLF & "a multiline" & @CRLF & "value."
IniWrite($IniFile, "Test", "Multiline", StringReplace($String, @CRLF, "<br>"))
$Result = StringReplace(IniRead($IniFile, "Test", "Multiline", ""), "<br>", @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("$Result = " & $Result & @LF)

This works great! Thanks PsaltyDS and eltorro :)
