way to tell how many sections in an ini?

6 posts in this topic

the function IniReadSectionNames ( "filename" ) will get all the section names but how could this be used to determine the total # of sections?

from the help file:

"The number of elements returned will be in $result[0]. If an @error occurs, no array is created.

Only the first 32767 chars are taken in account in an section due to Win9x compatibility."

yes i know how to call an array. what im asking is if thier is a way to quickly determine how many sections are in an .ini

IniReadSectionNames()

If you do $temp = IniReadSectionNames() , $temp[0] will be the number of sections.

I guess I'm not understanding what you are asking for, but doesn't this work just fine?

$sections = IniReadSectionNames("my.ini")
MsgBox(0,"Total Number of Sections",$sections[0])

EDIT: Piano_Man got to it first :)
