Reading from a file

3 posts in this topic

Similar question to my previous post.

How easy is it to read from a txt file and use the data in that txt file to populate fields on the screen?

How have others used this feature?

Are there any issues that you have experienced?

Any additional information would be greatly appreciated!

Take care,

Depends on the text file and your familiarity with autoit.

I use a lot of INI reads and writes for my scripts, it is a very easy way to get information to/from a text file, and populate fields, and store variables for different computers.

I also have several scripts that download text files from the web, CSV, XML, or flat out HTML files. I then read and parse that data and do all sorts of things with it.

Reading and parsing from CSV and INI files are easy with a few practices, HTML and XML can take a bit more work.

I am new to the AutoIT application.

I will want to take a file with data in it, either a .csv, .txt, or .xls, and use that data to populate fields on the screen along with other keyboard emulations.

I have not done a whole lot of searching for the specific functions that I would need to use.

Would someone be willing to supply some sample code that they used?

How easy is the reference materials to search?

Are functions easy to search for, or do you need to know exactly what you are looking for functionally?

Any additional information would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
