Do something all all files in directory

3 posts in this topic

G'day everyone

I would like to be able to drag a folder tree to a compile AutoIt script and let the script open all TXT files in that tree in my text editor. Dragging and dropping is not a problem. Opening in the text editor is not a problem. But how do I get a directory listing of the files, or how do I tell the script which files to process?

In MS Windows I would right-click the folder and search for *.TXT, to get a list of all text files in it. But I don't know how to effect that in AutoIt.

Any ideas about how to do this?

Thanks

Samuel

Look in the helpfile at the example for FileFindFirstFile & FileFindNextFile. Just a small bit of tweaking should make it possible to open them.

The Help file can tell you more about the following functions. See if any of them will work for you.
  • _FileListToArray()
  • FileOpenDialog()
  • FileFindFirstFile()
  • StdoutRead()
  • Run(@ComSpec & " /c dir ...)
If you search the Help file or forum for keywords like "directory listing of files" and come up with nothing, you can always simplify or broaden your search with a single keyword like "files". Hope this help get you in the right direction.
