#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Ok, I know this is VERY simple (and I know I did it yesterday) but I cant get it now. :) I looked through all the help files and couldnt get it.

I want inputbox which you can input some text, press the go button and it replaces a piece of text in a text file.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#Include <File.au3>
Opt("TrayIconHide", 1)
GUICreate("", 131, 100, -1, -1)

$string = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 5, 10, 100, 20)
$go = GUICtrlCreateButton("go", 5, 40, 30, 20)

GUISetState()
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg        
        Case $go
            _ReplaceStringInFile("string.txt", "Ok", $string)
            
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
            
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Dont judge me :)

$sStr = FileRead("String.Txt")
$sStr = StringReplace($sStr, "OK", GUICtrlRead($String))
$oFile = FileOpen("String.txt", 2)
FileWrite($oFile, $sStr)
FileClose($oFile)

I went to your site ( looks nice ) clicked on Contact and then later I clicked on About. The about link from the contact page kinks to a plain white page

Thought you might like to know

Thanks. What browser? I had that problem in FF last week and I thought I fixed it, if not then I'll look again.

Oh, wait a sec. Did you click the About from the Contact page? If so then that page has the same problem as the one I fixed the other day and I'll correct it the same way. It's a typo where I entered \ instead of /. IE is forgiving on that but not FF.

Can you try it from the Main page?

Thanks

NM

I could have sworn that I did a Global Search & replace for that against the site. Would have been swearing for nothing. It's fixed now. Thanks @Val

Thanks @Val. I would have probably never noticed because I seldom go to the site using FF and I most assuredly would not have checked the Contacts page. Of course I do have a link verifyer but I never think to use it.

It should be. Post your working code again so we can look at it.

No problem with that. It will work. Also don't forget that you can set/unset File attribs as required shoud that become necessary.

FileSetAttrib("string.txt", "+HR")

FileSetAttrib("string.txt","-R")

FileWrite("string.txt", "Some string")

FileSetAttrib("string.txt","+R")

BTW: So far you have no code in there that requires the file.au3 file that you #included.

FileSetAttrib and FileWrite are built-in functions.

Thank you very much, and I know, that is just the 1/100th of the code.

How would I put that in my code? Something like.

Case $go
            $sStr = FileRead("String.Txt")
            $sStr = StringReplace($sStr, "OK", GUICtrlRead($String))
            $oFile = FileOpen("String.txt", 2)
            FileSetAttrib("string.txt", "+HR")
            FileSetAttrib("string.txt","-R")
            FileWrite($oFile, $sStr)
            FileSetAttrib("string.txt","+R")
            FileClose($oFile)

            FileSetAttrib("string.txt","+R")
            FileClose($oFile)
?
If you are going to use FileOpen() then you have to set the attribs BEFORE that line and AFTER The FileClose.

Case $go
            $sStr = FileRead("String.Txt")
            $sStr = StringReplace($sStr, "OK", GUICtrlRead($String))
    ;;FileSetAttrib("string.txt", "+HR");; If this is already the right attribs then no need for this
    ;; it was only used as an example
            FileSetAttrib("string.txt","-R")
            $oFile = FileOpen("String.txt", 2)
            FileWrite($oFile, $sStr)
            FileClose($oFile)
            FileSetAttrib("string.txt","+R")
