Loop through file and add results to a variable

6 posts in this topic

OK ... I've got a script that loops through a file and

checks for the existence of a specific combination

(i.e. it checks for the string having a letter followed

by a colon )

It works perfectly but i need to have the results add

to the last instance of one being found

For example, it checks for the existence of "V:" in the file

I need it to return the value and next time around return

the first value and the second value, etc, etc.

Example: 1st instance = "value1"

2nd instance = "value1value2"

I get the values i need but upon the 2nd and subsiquent instances

it only shows those results

Heres what i have in a simplified version:

$file = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\settings.ini", 0)

$cnt = 0
$num = 0

While 1 
   $cnt = $cnt + 1
   $line = FileReadLine($file, $cnt)
   if @error = -1 then exitloop
   if stringinstr($line, "V:") Then
         $num = $num + 1
         $line = StringTrimLeft($line, 3)
         $line = StringTrimRight($line, 1)
        ; need to add results here and continue loop      
   EndIf
WEnd

The settings.ini in question has sections in the following format:

[V:value1]
[V:value2]
etc, etc

I want to be able to get all of the sections that are in that format

(i.e. find all sections that are like [V:value1])

without hard coding it into a program.

This way more sections can be added to the ini and the program will find these

and allow me to add them dynamically to a dropdown list so they can be selected

Am I adding to the confusion? :)

Is the whole reason for

Example: 1st instance = "value1"

2nd instance = "value1value2"

for adding the items dyntamically to a combo box?

I'm taking a stab in the dark here:

$file = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\settings.ini", 0)

$cnt = 0
$num = 0

Dim $allResults
While 1
  $cnt = $cnt + 1
  $line = FileReadLine($file, $cnt)
  if @error = -1 then exitloop
  if stringinstr($line, "V:") Then
        $num = $num + 1
        $line = StringTrimLeft($line, 3)
        $line = StringTrimRight($line, 1)
      ; need to add results here and continue loop      
       $allResults = $allResults & $line
  EndIf
WEnd

MsgBox(4096, "All Results", $allResults)

No problem. I thought surely I must be missing something. The fix can' be that simple, can it? ;):)
