System Varibles

7 posts in this topic

I was wondering Since I have been using Auto it I havent been able to figure out how to use System Varibles inside the scripts I write. Is there a way to use System varibles inside FileOpen and other functions? or do I have to create a Varible to have it use it specially instead of straight up using it inside the functions. If I could get a quick answer that would be great! :whistle:

Thanks Duran.

EnvGet is what your after I think assuming by system you mean environment variables.

Copied from the helpfile:

$var = EnvGet("PATH")
MsgBox(4096, "Path variable is:", $var)

Sounds like you're having issues connecting strings and variables.

Ex:

$variable = 'my variable'

MsgBox(0, '', 'this is a string and this is ' & $variable) ;connect them using &

a few more examples:

$userTempPath = EnvGet("TEMP") ;stores the users temp directory i.e C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\temp
MsgBox(0, "Example 1", "Users temp path is: " & $userTempPath) ;example 1 using a variable
MsgBox(0, "Example 2", "Your computer name is: " & EnvGet("COMPUTERNAME")) ;example 2 calling the function directly
DirCreate($userTempPath & "\test123") ;creates a folder called test123 under the users temp directory
