Small question

4 posts in this topic

I'm pretty new to AutoIt, so forgive me if this has been covered or is in the wrong forum, but I can't find it. :D

How can I edit a path that I have received in a variable? I created a browse button that will look for an excel file, and I want to filter out just the file name from the path:

EX. path = c:\folder\FileName.xls

I would like to extract the FileName.xls part to add to a variable for use later on in the script.

(And the c:\folder\ part will not always be the same path)

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Here's two different ways you might try:

$path = "c:\folder\FileName.xls"
$path = StringRight($path,StringLen($path)-StringInStr($path,"\",0,-1))
msgbox(1,"",$path)

; A second way, maybe easier to understand
$path = "c:\folder\FileName.xls"
$path = StringSplit($path,"\")
msgbox(1,"",$path[$path[0]])

That's EXCELLENT. Exactly what I was looking for. Thank You! :D

You may also want to check out the _PathSplit function.

From the help file:

#include <file.au3>
Dim $szDrive, $szDir, $szFName, $szExt
_PathSplit(@ScriptFullPath, $szDrive, $szDir, $szFName, $szExt)
MsgBox(0,"_PathSplit",$szFName& $szExt)
