Hi, :">

I'm new to scripting. I can program in C, but this is a total new ball game to me. Any help is much appreciated.

First of all, I read the tutorial on this website on opening a text file, write something in it and then close it. Now, what if I wanted to save it in a specific directory?

So I got to here:

WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
Send("This is a test...")
WinClose("Untitled - Notepad")
WinWaitActive("Notepad", "The text in the Untitled file has changed")
WinWaitActive("Save As")
ControlClick("Save As", "Save &in:", "", "Desktop")
Send("notepad_test.txt","File name:")

But obviously that didn't work. I can save the file to default directory just fine, but not on my desktop (or wherever I wanted it to be). I've looked at 20 or so pages in the search but found nothing.

I know the error is "ControlClick" but I don't know how to direct the mouse to choose "Desktop". Any help is much appreciated.

better to save it and then copy/move it to any folder you want...




Copies one or more files.

FileCopy ( "source", "dest" [, flag] )


source The source path of the file(s) to copy. Wildcards are supported.

dest The destination path of the copied file(s).

flag [optional] this flag determines whether to overwrite files if they already exist.

Can be a combination of the following:

0 = (default) do not overwrite existing files

1 = overwrite existing files

8 = Create destination directory structure if it doesn't exist (See Remarks).
