How to write a value in a non-section .ini file?

Recommended Posts

smartsnake

Hi, could you help me to solve this problems? For example, there is an .ini file with no section name. How can I use "IniWrite" command to set a key's value? I tried {IniWrite ( "filename", "", "key", "value" )} but failed to modify the "key" value.

Here is the copy from the help:

IniWrite ( "filename", "section", "key", "value" )

A standard ini file looks like:

[sectionName]

Key=Value

If file does not exist, it is created. Keys and/or sections are added to the end and are not sorted in any way.

If an ini doesn't have any section names then it's not going to work trying to use IniWrite() a key & value without a section to put them under.

You would need to use FileWrite() or FileWriteLine() to accomplish what your after.

Oh... I see. Thanks.

You will need to write "by hand"...

Something like this:

_FileWriteValue("Test.ini", "Key", "Value")

Func _FileWriteValue($sFile, $sKey, $sValue)
    Local $sReadFile = FileRead($sFile)
    If $sReadFile = "" Then Return FileWriteLine($sFile, $sKey & "=" & $sValue)
    
    Local $aReadFileArr = StringSplit(StringStripCR($sReadFile), @LF)
    Local $iUbound = UBound($aReadFileArr)-1, $sCurrentLine, $iKeyIsWritten = 0, $sCRLF = @CRLF
    
    Local $hFileOpenW = FileOpen($sFile, 8 + 2)
    If $hFileOpenW = -1 Then Return SetError(1, 0, -1)
    
    For $i = 1 To $iUbound
        $sCurrentLine = StringStripWS($aReadFileArr[$i], 7)
        If $i = $iUbound Then $sCRLF = ""
        
        If StringLeft($aReadFileArr[$i], StringLen($sKey)+1) = $sKey & "=" Then
            $iKeyIsWritten = 1
            FileWrite($hFileOpenW, $sKey & "=" & $sValue & $sCRLF)
        Else
            FileWrite($hFileOpenW, $aReadFileArr[$i] & $sCRLF)
        EndIf
    Next
    
    If Not $iKeyIsWritten Then FileWriteLine($hFileOpenW, $sKey & "=" & $sValue)
    
    Return FileClose($hFileOpenW)
EndFunc
