INIRead()

7 posts in this topic

Do we still really need to have a default value set in this function.

I'm thinking that without it we could use things like

If INIRead($Ini,"section","Value") Then
   Do what I want
Else
   Do the alternative

How would you distinct between the keyword not being in the INI file and the keyword being "" ?

FileWriteLine("test.ini","[Main]")
$test = INIRead("test.ini","Main", "test", "Not There")
If $test = "Not There" Then
   ConsoleWrite("Test not in ini" & @LF)
Else
   ConsoleWrite("Test value is " & $test & @LF)
EndIf
;   
FileWriteLine("test.ini","test=")
$test = INIRead("test.ini","Main", "test", "Not There")
If $test = "Not There" Then
   ConsoleWrite("Test not in ini" & @LF)
Else
   ConsoleWrite("Test value is " & $test & @LF)
EndIf

My thinking was by returning error codes. I'm not sure just how feasable this is but I've been thinking about it for a long time now so I thought I would post it to see the response.

I'd really like to read users opinions and reasoning.

With a default value, you do not need to use If...Then...EndIf to check as your code assumes that the value passed, whether default or as in the ini file is suitable to use. So your logic of it being the same as your 1st example is like comparing an apple to a banana. Enjoy healthy eating.

And once again, this is a case of, if you don't like how something works, write a wrapper around it to do what you want.
