Copy files using ini file directives

Recommended Posts

NDog

I am trying to improve myself at autoit language and syntax.

I am trying something new. I have a base folder which has software organised into subfolders, and I want these to be copied to another drive in a structured folder way.

I have created a ini file which I want the script to read the values and then use that in the script.

The ini is divided into section headers [example] this is the name of the app I have designated it

I want the GUI to detect which operating system the host is running or provide a choice to the user, so it will only copy the files that will run on it. This is the approach I though best. For example if there are 2 versions of a software, the current version and an older version that is supported on eg windows 98 i would use this form

[PICASA_NEW]

NAME=Picasa

BIT=32

OS_2K=yes

OS_XP=yes

OS_2K3=yes

OS_Vista=yes

OS_2K8=yes

TYPE=Graphics

SOURCE=Picasa\9x

[PICASA_OLD]

NAME=Picasa

BIT=32

OS_95=yes

OS_98=yes

OS_ME=yes

TYPE=Graphics

SOURCE=Picasa\xp

A lot of the code I have reused, parts are from the DcoTmenu, I partially understand it, but not that much.

At the moment the priority is to tighten the code. I cant understand how i can use multiple if condition = true ifnextcondition = true etc.

Also should I create an array for all the OS'es I am using? which method do you recommend?

Sorry if this should be in the GUI forum, but I think it is more related to code-behind than GUI stuff at the moment

thanks

Thanks for posting the code - helpful

Have you tried using the IN statement with the for loop?

Also if you are trying to tighten up code, don't use Dim, use Global or Local within functions.

for CopyList() I see your issue. Try something like this, I assume that only one of the conditions are going to be true.

Global $aOS[15] = ["NAME", "BIT", "HTTP", "and so on"]
Global $ini_os = ""

Func CopyList()
    Local $i = 0
    ;your stuff here
    
    While $ini_os = ""      
        $ini_os = IniRead($AppListFile, $AppSectionName, $aOS[$i], "")
        $i = $i + 1
    WEnd
    
    MsgBox(0, "OS from INI", $$ini_os)
    
EndFunc   ;==>CopyList
