StringSplit only returning a few characters

Recommended Posts


I'm working on a type of EBook reader (I call SBoox, pronounced Ess Books) and I'm having a wee bit of trouble with the "page" system. It is a human readable format with the extension "sbk", and it's basically text separated by a delimiter (In this case: {newpage})

Here is the reader so far:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
Global $pagecount, $temppage
$Form1 = GUICreate("", 493, 574, 193, 115)
$Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 0, 0, 489, 513)
$hMenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("SBoox")
$hOpen = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Open SBook", $hMenu)
$hNext = GUICtrlCreateButton("Next Page", 72, 528, 65, 17, 0)
$hPrev = GUICtrlCreateButton("Previous Page", 344, 528, 73, 17, 0)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 216, 528, 49, 21, BitOR($ES_CENTER, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL, $ES_READONLY))
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            MsgBox(0, "Test", "Lolz")
        Case $hOpen
            $temppage = GUICtrlRead($Edit1)
            $fOpen = FileOpenDialog("Open SBook", "f:\Scripts\", "SBoox Books (*.sbk)")
            If @error Then
                MsgBox(0x10, "Error", "Error opening file")
                GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, $temppage)
            $szPages = _LoadSBook($fOpen, "{newpage}")
            GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, $szPages[1])
            $pagecount = 1
        Case $hNext
            If IsArray($szPages) Then
                If $pagecount < $szPages[0] Then
                    GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, $szPages[$pagecount + 1])
                    $pagecount = $pagecount + 1
        Case Else

Func _LoadSBook($sPath, $sNewPageDilemeter)
    Local $fData, $split
    If Not FileExists($sPath) Then
        Return -1
    $fData = FileRead($sPath)
    $split = StringSplit($fData, $sNewPageDilemeter)
    If Not IsArray($split) Then
        Return -1
    Return $split
EndFunc   ;==>_LoadSBook

And this is a test SBook:

^^Made with a Lorem Ipsum generator

If you save that as an sbk file, and run it with the above script, Each page is 2-5 characters long. And, when you press "Next Page", it skips a character before showing the next 3-5 characters. So each page is like:

Lo r...Psu... Do...oram... Etc

Does anyone know what's wrong?

Read the help file under StringSplit() and check out the "flag" parameter:



Splits up a string into substrings depending on the given delimiters.

StringSplit ( "string", "delimiters" [, flag ] )



string = The string to evaluate.

delimiters = One or more characters to use as delimiters (case sensitive).

flag [optional] = If flag is 0 (the default), then each character in the delimiter string will mark where to split the string. If flag is 1, then the entire delimiter string is needed to mark the split.

Oops :)

EDIT: To my defense, I couldn't get the helpfile running under Wine :)

Let us just forget this ever happened...
