FileInstall for Directories?

4 posts in this topic

Can FileInstall do a whole directory worth of files or do I have to do each file individually?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Nope.

You could zip them up into a selfextracting zipfile and then do a FileInstall an run it.

Remarks

The FileInstall function is designed to include files into a compiled AutoIt script. These included files can then be "extracted" during execution of the compiled script. Keep in mind that files such as images can greatly increase the size of a compiled script.

The source file must be a string and not a variable so that the compiler can extract the filename to include. The source cannot contain wildcards.

Might want to look in the recent scripts and scrapts forum. It I think has something written that will do what you are requesting.

Here's a modified script I normally use for creating my function-parameters in Matlab (parameters are filenames of data-files with data to be plotted).

You need AutoIt 3.0.103 unstable

HotKeySet ( "^b","line")

$dest = "...path to destination directory..."
$flag = 0; flag for FileInstall


While 1

    Sleep(10)

WEnd



Func line()

    $hWnd = ControlGetHandle("", "", "SysListView321")
    
; get the path of the file
    $text = WinGetText("")
    If ($text <> "FolderView"&chr(10)) Then 
        $text = StringLeft($text,StringInStr($text,chr(10)))
    
    Else    
               ; special-case: for instance Desktop
               ; change to your needs or better: don#t use such paths
        $text = ""
    EndIf

    $selected = ControlCommand("","",$hWnd, "LV_GetSelected",1)
    $split = StringSplit ( $selected, "|" )

    For $i = 1 To $split[0]
        $line = $line & 'FileInstall("' & $text & '\' &  ControlCommand("","",$hWnd, "LV_GetText",$split[$i],0) & 

'","' & $dest & '",' & $flag & ')'
        If ($i <> $split[0]) Then $line = $line & @CRLF
    Next

    ClipPut ($line)

    $msg = "Number of selected items: "&$split[0]&@CRLF&@CRLF
    $msg = $msg & "Text send to clipboard:"&@CRLF&@CRLF&$line


    MsgBox(262144,"",$msg,5)
    Exit
EndFunc

What does it do ?

Start it and select the files which you want to have to be FileInstalled.

Press Strg-B (or change the code to your HotKey).

Text has been put to clipboard.

Paste the text in your AutoIt-Script.
