help required for random file copy

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to make a random file copy script using AutoIt3.

The script should randomly copy a File from directory A1 and place it in directory B1 with the name background.jpg

The script that I tried is the following:

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

AutoIt Version:

Author: myName

Script Function:

Template AutoIt script.

#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

; Script Start - Add your code below here

$filename = int(Random(1, 4))

$name = string ($filename) &".jpg"

FileCopy("C:\a1\$name", "C:\b1\background.jpg", 1)

What am I doing wrong and it is not copying the file ?

Please go easy because I'm new at this

#include <file.au3>

$sourceFolder = "C:\temp"
 $destinationFolder = "C:\output"

$aFileList = _FileListToArray($sourceFolder, "*.*", 1)

$iRandom = Random(1,$aFileList[0],1)

FileCopy($sourceFolder & "\" & $aFileList[$iRandom],  $destinationFolder)
