handling @CRLFs in a Guictrlread

8 posts in this topic

ultimate script goal - save notes on a specific PC to an ini and read/edit them later

user enters some notes in a Guicreateedit window

i save what they type to an INI file

[NOTES]

computer_name="blah blah"

when they open the script again, it will read their previous entry from the INI file...

they can edit and overwrite the value saved in the ini file

problem:

if they have multiple lines in what they enter then the INI looks like this:

[NOTES]

computer_name1=carsdfdf

dfdf

computer_name2=trux

3498342323

eg

dfdfd

dfdf

any ideas?

here's what i have:

Func PC_Notes($asset, $asset_label)
    
    $pc_notes_child = GUICreate("PC Notes:", 300, 260, -1, -1, $WS_EX_MDICHILD)
    
    GUISwitch($pc_notes_child)
    
    $notes = IniRead($ini, "NOTES", $asset, "")
    
    If $notes <> "" Then
        $myedit = GUICtrlCreateEdit($notes & @CRLF, 5, 5, 290, 190, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $WS_VSCROLL)
    Else
        $myedit = GUICtrlCreateEdit($notes, 5, 5, 290, 190, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $WS_VSCROLL)
    EndIf

    $SAVE_btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("SAVE", 100, 200, 43, 25)
    SetOnEvent($SAVE_btn, "SAVE_PC_NOTES", 2, $ParamByVal, $asset, $ParamByVal, $asset_label)

    $CANCEL_btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("CANCEL", 150, 200, 58, 25)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "DEL_pc_notes_child")

    GUICtrlSetData(GUICtrlRead($myedit), 1)

    GUISetState()

    Send("{END}")
    
EndFunc   ;==>PC_Notes

Func SAVE_PC_NOTES($asset, $asset_label)
    IniWrite($ini, "NOTES", $asset, GUICtrlRead($myedit))
    GUIDelete($pc_notes_child)
EndFunc   ;==>SAVE_PC_NOTES

Func DEL_pc_notes_child()
    GUIDelete($pc_notes_child)
EndFunc   ;==>DEL_pc_notes_child

You can replace the CRLFs with some seperater...

Func PC_Notes($asset, $asset_label)
    $pc_notes_child = GUICreate("PC Notes:", 300, 260, -1, -1, $WS_EX_MDICHILD)
    
    GUISwitch($pc_notes_child)
    
    $notes = StringReplace(IniRead($ini, "NOTES", $asset, ""), "$\n$", @CRLF)
    
    If $notes <> "" Then
        $myedit = GUICtrlCreateEdit($notes & @CRLF, 5, 5, 290, 190, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $WS_VSCROLL)
    Else
        $myedit = GUICtrlCreateEdit($notes, 5, 5, 290, 190, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $WS_VSCROLL)
    EndIf

    $SAVE_btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("SAVE", 100, 200, 43, 25)
    SetOnEvent($SAVE_btn, "SAVE_PC_NOTES", 2, $ParamByVal, $asset, $ParamByVal, $asset_label)

    $CANCEL_btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("CANCEL", 150, 200, 58, 25)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "DEL_pc_notes_child")

    GUICtrlSetData(GUICtrlRead($myedit), 1)

    GUISetState()

    Send("{END}")
    
EndFunc   ;==>PC_Notes

Func SAVE_PC_NOTES($asset, $asset_label)
    IniWrite($ini, "NOTES", $asset, StringReplace(GUICtrlRead($myedit), @CRLF, "$\n$"))
    GUIDelete($pc_notes_child)
EndFunc   ;==>SAVE_PC_NOTES

Func DEL_pc_notes_child()
    GUIDelete($pc_notes_child)
EndFunc   ;==>DEL_pc_notes_child

EDIT: I did have the same idea as MrCreator, so at least he was able to help and hopefully test his advise

I was able to help only because i also had the same problem once :) - The code posted above even not tested, but i pretty sure it's what gcue needs.

$edittext = "some\ text with" & @CRLF & "in it and\ some \s"
$initext = StringReplace(StringReplace(StringReplace($edittext, "\", "\\"), @LF, "\n"), @CR, "\r")
;...
$initext = "some\\ text with\r\nin it and\\ some \\s"
$edittext = StringReplace(StringRegExpReplace(StringRegExpReplace($initext, "(?<!\\)\\n", @LF), "(?<!\\)\\r", @CR), "\\", "\")

Delicious. It prevents the user input from colliding with the identifier by escaping the user input.

Well, as long as AutoIt supports negative zero width look behind assertions... I don't know if it does for sure.

hmm seperate issue - i cant hit enter while in a GuiCtrlCreateEdit???

(the enter in the previous issue was accounting for multiple entry submissions, i hadn't tried hitting <ENTER> in one submission)

You have to make sure that it is set to accept return.
