filecreate

7 posts in this topic

could someone please point me to a simple code thatshows how to creat a file using either _filecreate, dircreate, or writeline please?!!? i've looked through mny but all i could find was how to create backup batch files etc... i need to create a log file with details of error pop-ups (if it should occur).. this is the part of my code where i've tried to do this:

#include <File.au3>

Func _Error()

If @error Then

$file = FileOpen("\\zeus\$rfernando\Test Scripts\Automatic Testing\test.txt", 9)

; Check if file opened for writing OK

If $file = -1 Then

MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")

Exit

EndIf

FileWriteLine($file, @MON & @MDAY & " " & @HOUR & @MIN & @SEC & " I am done:" & @ComputerName, @CR)

MsgBox(32, "Error", "Error logged as: " & @error)

EndIf

FileClose($file)

EndFunc

; Script Start - start synergetic

Run ("S:\TCMVIC\Trial_CD_August\Synergetic\SynMain.exe arose")

WinWaitActive("Information")

send("{enter}")

The code that you have for the file creation seems okay at a glance, but it will never run.

In this line of code...

If @error Then

@error will always be 0 going into the UDF

So nothing inside of the If/EndIf will ever run.

Get rid of the If/EndIf and see how it works for you...

Your code in that post does not show when and how the _Error func gets called.

That depends on what AutoIt can "see" when the error window pops up.

You will probably want to take a look at the AdLibEnable function.

maybe a layout like:

$file = FileOpen("\\zeus\$rfernando\Test Scripts\Automatic Testing\test.txt", 9)

AdLibEnable("_Error")

; Script Start - start synergetic

Run ("S:\TCMVIC\Trial_CD_August\Synergetic\SynMain.exe arose")

WinWaitActive("Information")

send("{enter}")

;rest of code here - errors may happen in here

FileClose($file)

Func _Error()

If WinExits("Some window title that AutoIt can see") Then FileWriteLine($file, @MON & @MDAY & " " & @HOUR & @MIN & @SEC & " I am done:" & @ComputerName, @CR)

EndFunc

Edit: That is a single line IF with no EndIf

winwaitactive("error")

sleep(10)

send("{enter}")

sleep(10)

shellexecute("filename")

end of script;

where it says file name put the intire file address of the file that you

wish to have open every time that a error message pops up;

Thank you so much for your help so far mate!! i think it's almost working.. now when an error pops up it gives me an error saying "Incorrect number of parameters in function call"

I don't see anything wrong with it!! even tried 'filewrite'... no success :-(

Below is what i've worked on so far...

#include <File.au3>

$file = FileOpen("\\zeus\$rfernando\Test Scripts\Automatic Testing\test.txt", 9)

AdLibEnable("_Error")

; Script Start - start synergetic

Run ("S:\TCMVIC\Trial_CD_August\Synergetic\SynMain.exe arose")

WinWaitActive("Information")

send("{enter}")

;Login

WinWaitActive("Synergetic Login")

Send("+{TAB}")

Send("{DEL}")

Send("sa")

Send("{TAB}")

Send("hersql3{#}")

Send("{enter}")

;Create Staff Member

Sleep(500)

send("!M")

Sleep(500)

send("H")

Sleep(500)

send("S")

Sleep(500)

WinWaitActive("Set Staff Search Criteria")

Send("!N");New Staff Member

;--------------------ERROR POPS UP HERE----------------------

WinWaitActive("Create New Staff Member")

Send("MR")

Send("{Enter}")

Send("{Enter}")

FileClose($file)

Func _Error()

If WinExists("DataTools Rapid Addressing Tool") Then FileWriteLine($file, @MON & @MDAY & " " & @HOUR & @MIN & @SEC & " I am done:" & @ComputerName, @CR)

EndFunc

;Close Synergetic

WinWaitActive("Synergetic Management System for Schools [arose]")

Send("!C")

Send("!F")

sleep(100)

Send("x")

winwaitactive("Confirm")

Send("Y")

Fix this line:

If WinExists("DataTools Rapid Addressing Tool") Then FileWriteLine($file, @MON & @MDAY & " " & @HOUR & @MIN & @SEC & " I am done:" & @ComputerName, @CR)

Make it:

@ComputerName & @CR)

or just

@ComputerName)

because FileWriteLine will add a "CR" if you don't.
