Large text to variable

Recommended Posts

therks

I wrote this a while ago and thought it might be nice to share. I use it whenever I have a large amount of text that I need to put in a variable.

*Edit: Fixed a bug I noticed in this post.

I wrote this a while back: Text to Au3

Your's looks better, but mine also converts it back to plain text.

This also comes with SciTE, it is called Codewizard.

Ah neat. I never felt a need to convert back since I use the tabs and the original text is still available. I don't see what you mean about CodeWizard though.. well, I guess you could use the multiline msgbox/inputbox things and use the outputted text. But to be honest I never really liked CodeWizard. It was a bit too much for what I needed. I actually wrote my own MsgBox creating script, nice and simple. What can I say, I like to do things my way, heh. :)

Apologies for a stupid question but I'm lost with this one. :)

What is the purpose of the conversion? The text is already in the variable $s_Input so why do you convert it, and if you never convert it back then what do you use it for?

If you wanted to use the text in MsgBox for example then MsgBox(0,'$s_input=',$s_input) works fine without any conversion doesn't it?

I'm not sure I understand your question, but let me provide an example.

I use my application to quickly turn this:

Dont ask me

What you know is true

Dont have to tell you

I love your precious heart

I

I was standing

You were there

Two worlds collided

And they could never tear us apart

We could live

For a thousand years

But if I hurt you

Id make wine from your tears

I told you

That we could fly

cause we all have wings

But some of us dont know why

I

I was standing

You were there

Two worlds collided

And they could never ever tear us apart

Into this:

$v = 'Dont ask me' & @CRLF & 'What you know is true' & @CRLF & 'Dont have to tell you' & @CRLF & 'I love your precious heart' & @CRLF & 'I' & @CRLF & 'I was standing' & @CRLF & 'You were there' & @CRLF & 'Two worlds collided' & @CRLF & 'And they could never tear us apart' & @CRLF & @CRLF & 'We could live' & @CRLF & 'For a thousand years' & @CRLF & 'But if I hurt you' & @CRLF & 'Id make wine from your tears' & @CRLF & @CRLF & 'I told you' & @CRLF & 'That we could fly' & @CRLF & 'cause we all have wings' & @CRLF & 'But some of us dont know why' & @CRLF & @CRLF & 'I' & @CRLF & 'I was standing' & @CRLF & 'You were there' & @CRLF & 'Two worlds collided' & @CRLF & 'And they could never ever tear us apart'oÝ÷ Øêí+ºÚ"µÍÌÍÝH   ÌÎNÑÛÚÈYIÌÎNÈ  [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÕÚ][ÝHÛÝÈÈYIÌÎNÈ    [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÑÛ]HÈ[[ÝIÌÎNÈ  [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÒHÝH[ÝXÚ[ÝÈX    ÌÎNÈ [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÒIÌÎNÈ    [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÒHØÈÝ[[ÉÌÎNÈ  [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÖ[ÝHÙHIÌÎNÈ [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÕÛÈÛÜÈÛÛYY    ÌÎNÈ [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÐ[^HÛÝ[]XÈ    ÌÎNÈ [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÔ [ÈÂÌÎNÕÙHÛÝ[]IÌÎNÈ   [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÑÜHÝØ[YXÉÌÎNÈ [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÐ]YH[ÝIÌÎNÈ  [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÒYXZÙHÚ[HÛH[ÝXÉÌÎNÈ  [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÔ [ÈÂÌÎNÒHÛ[ÝIÌÎNÈ  [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÕ]ÙHÛÝ[IÌÎNÈ   [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNØØ]ÙHÙH[]HÚ[ÜÉÌÎNÈ  [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÐ]ÛÛYHÙÈÛÛÝÈÚIÌÎNÈ   [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÔ [ÈÂÌÎNÒIÌÎNÈ    [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÒHØÈÝ[[ÉÌÎNÈ  [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÖ[ÝHÙHIÌÎNÈ [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÕÛÈÛÜÈÛÛYY    ÌÎNÈ [ÈÔ   [ÈÂÌÎNÐ[^HÛÝ[]]XÈ   ÌÎNÈ [ÈÔ   [È

Fixed the bug I noticed in my last post. I was going to just edit that post but when I tried - holy crap! It turned my autoit tags into pure gibberish. I guess that's the autoit code bug that people on the forums have been complaining about.

Thanks for the example, but I understand what it does, and if my dumb question helped find a bug then that's great. What I don't understand is why you want to do it. Can you give an example, not with code necessarily, but as a description of where this is useful. I'm probably being very thick about this, but so far I've never felt the need to do anything like that, so if there are cases when I do need it I want to be prepared. I expect my programming techniques are just too narrow.

As far as editing posts is concerned, if you copy the text from the forum before you edit it you can then paste it back in and edit if that makes sense.

I haven't used the AutoIt code tags for a long time because of the frequent problems, and I've never had any problem with code tags which is what I always use.

His script converts an entered text into formatted form that can be pasted directly into a source file. That way, it has all the quotes, new lines, and other special characters set up.

This is nice, but why would you need to enter large amounts like that?

Source file for a script.

Let's say you are creating a book in AutoIt, and you'll have to put all the pages of text inside the source code, you can type or paste the pages into his converted and then paste the output into your book script.. :)

@Richard, you will come across a few of those conversions and you'll be happy when you have bookmarked this page by that time.

Hi!

Perso, I use this method (example) :

$g=_istr("toto")
#cs toto
Dont ask me
What you know is true
Dont have to tell you
I love your precious heart
I
I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never tear us apart

We could live
For a thousand years
But if I hurt you
Id make wine from your tears

I told you
That we could fly
cause we all have wings
But some of us dont know why

I
I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never ever tear us apart
#ce toto


MsgBox(0,"$g",$g)



Func _istr($id)
    $tmp = FileRead(@ScriptName)
    $i=StringInStr($tmp,"#cs " & $id)
    $j=StringInStr($tmp,"#ce " & $id)
    if $i<1 or $j<1 Then
        Return ""
    Else
        $i+=StringLen($id)+6
        Return StringMid($tmp,$i,$j-$i-2)
    EndIf
EndFunc

Hey, that's a neat idea, but only works for uncompiled scripts unfortunately. :)

@martin: I've been using it for About dialogs and such. I suppose I could have just written the text to a file and loaded from that, but that means having to FileInstall an extra file.

Here's a better example I suppose. I ripped this right out of a program I wrote a while ago.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
Func _FK_About()
    Opt('ExpandVarStrings', 1)
    $s_AboutContent = '   I wrote FireKey to replace a program called WinKey, by Copernic Technologies. WinKey was nice, but a bit limited, it only had support for a specific list of key combinations that you couldn''t customize. For example you couldn''t define hotkeys with the tilde, apostrophe, other punctuation, or even the Alt key, strictly Win, Ctrl, and Shift. FireKey doesn''t suffer from that limitation, and I also added in a few custom commands. Like the Open and Close CD Tray commands, you simply supply a parameter of the drive you want to open or close, or the Send Keys command, which allows you to simply send a string of text to whatever window currently has focus. Unfortunately, FireKey does suffer from one limitation that I know of, it can only support a total of 64 hotkeys. This may or may not be a problem, 64 is a rather high number. I''ve got everything hotkeyed that I could ask for right now and I''m only using about 20 hotkeys. The program will always keep track for you, right in it''s titlebar.@CRLF@@CRLF@   Special Commands:@CRLF@   There are several commands you can use besides just running a specific file. They are listed and explained here.@CRLF@     - FireKey Commands:@CRLF@     - Show/Hide FireKey Window - Just what it says. Show the FireKey window if it''s not shown, and hide it if it is.@CRLF@     - Shutdown FireKey - Ends FireKey and disables all hotkeys.@CRLF@     - Misc Commands:@CRLF@    - Turn Off Monitor - Puts the monitor in it''s sleep mode if available.@CRLF@       - Open/Close CD Tray - Open or close the defined CD Tray. Enter the letter of the drive to open or close in the Parameters box.@CRLF@       - Send Keys - This will automatically send a string of text to whatever window has focus. Enter the text to send in the Parameters box.@CRLF@       - Send Keys (Adv) - Same as above, but certain characters and strings have special meaning. Have a look at the Send Key List on the AutoIt website for more information. (http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/appendix/SendKeys.htm)@CRLF@   - Active Window Commands:@CRLF@       - Minimize/Maximize/Restore/Close - Exactly what they say. When this command is executed, whichever window currently has focus will attempt to be minimized, maximized, etc. This will not necessarily work for every window.@CRLF@  @CRLF@   Uninstalling:@CRLF@   - First: There will be a maximum of 3 files left on your system.@CRLF@      1. FireKey.exe (obviously)@CRLF@    2. FireKey_ReadMe.txt@CRLF@     3. PSApi.dll@CRLF@    The first two files will be found wherever you run FireKey from. The third is only placed in your system directory if you''re running Windows NT 4 and do not already have psapi.dll. This file is needed to adjust process priority of the program so that it doesn''t eat up the CPU.@CRLF@   - Second: Registry settings@CRLF@     * Warning: Do not edit the registry unless you know what you''re doing!@CRLF@       - FireKey stores all of it''s settings and hotkeys in a registry key under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SaundersSoft\FireKey. If you really want all traces of FireKey gone, delete the "FireKey" registry key.@CRLF@  @CRLF@Special Thanks to:@CRLF@   - The AutoIt3 development team, for the wonderful, easy to use, and best of all free, software.@CRLF@   - Especially special thanks to JPM, for his awesome dedication and constant beta updates.@CRLF@   - gafrost, for his wonderful GuiListView and GuiCombo functions.@CRLF@   - jftuga and w0uter for the _ReduceMemory function.@CRLF@   - ezzetabi for the _ShellExecute function.@CRLF@   - Copernic Technologies, for originally creating WinKey, which served me well for eons.@CRLF@@CRLF@Updates:@CRLF@   - Version 1.1 - 2006-02-23@CRLF@  Bug fix: Error when Start Dir field not empty.@CRLF@   - Version 1.0 - 2005-08-25@CRLF@@CRLF@Written with AutoIt3: http://www.autoitscript.com@CRLF@Author: Rob Saunders@CRLF@Contact: rksaunders@@gmail.com / http://rks.no-ip.com'

Hey, that's a neat idea, but only works for uncompiled scripts unfortunately. :)

It's possible to use in compiled scripts, but only is the source-code is in the same directory.

For that, change:

$tmp = FileRead(@ScriptName)

to:

$tmp = FileRead(StringTrimRight(@ScriptName,3)&"au3")

lol, I didn't believe you at first.. Thinking that compiling would change the text, but it didn't. It's right there, and the function still works.. :)

Your method might even be faster.

Why would compiling have changed the source file??

I expected it to be done because you need a password to decompile au3 files when they have been passworded.

His method only works if the original source file (the *.au3) is in the same dir as the compiled script, and you haven't changed the name of the exe. Unless I'm missing something, nothing gets decompiled. Then for a compiled script you'll have to FileInstall the source file for it to be portable.
