Input Box question

Recommended Posts

akfourtyseven

How do you write a text entered into an input box onto a text file.

For example,

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <Inet.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

; GUI Creation
GUICreate("Data", 500, 420)
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Data")
$labelnaam = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Name : ", 60, 40)
$Button_word = GUICtrlCreateButton("Write", 400, 350)
$input_naam = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 100, 40, 130, 20)
; GUI Show
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
$file = FileOpen("ak.txt",0)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $Button_word
            $read_input = GUICtrlRead($input_naam)
            FileWrite($file, "12"&$Read_Input&"34")
            FileClose($file)
    EndSelect
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
WEnd

It works when I make it display the input on Message box but it doesn't write it to a file, What is the problem?!

change it to this.. u r missing an exitloop. so ur while loop never ends.. it keeps on executing.

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <Inet.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

; GUI Creation
GUICreate("Data", 500, 420)
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Data")
$labelnaam = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Name : ", 60, 40)
$Button_word = GUICtrlCreateButton("Write", 400, 350)
$input_naam = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 100, 40, 130, 20)
; GUI Show
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
$file = FileOpen("c:\ak.txt",2)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
   if  $msg = $Button_word Then
            $read_input = GUICtrlRead($input_naam)
            FileWrite($file, "12"&$Read_Input&"34")
            FileClose($file)
            ExitLoop
    Endif
    
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
WEnd

I have changed it and still no progress..

I have managed to make it write but it only writes the default value of the input box,

akfourtyseven,

1. Perhaps if you opened your file in Write mode?

Mode (read or write) to open the file in.

Can be a combination of the following:

0 = Read mode

1 = Write mode (append to end of file)

2 = Write mode (erase previous contents)

2. You are also closing your file after the first write. Put FileClose as part of your exit code.

3. You are not writing what you read - use the same spelling for the GUICtrlRead and FileWrite.

Try this:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <Inet.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

; GUI Creation
GUICreate("Data", 500, 420)
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Data")
$labelnaam = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Name : ", 60, 40)
$Button_word = GUICtrlCreateButton("Write", 400, 350)
$input_naam = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 100, 40, 130, 20)
; GUI Show
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
$file = FileOpen("ak.txt",1)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $Button_word
            $read_input = GUICtrlRead($input_naam)
            FileWrite($file, "12" & $read_input & "34")
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            FileClose($file)
            ExitLoop
    EndSelect
WEnd

Hey

I just tested with the above code. It works perfectly well. It creates a file in C drive, named ak.txt. and writes 12*****34. **** represents i/p.

What exactly is the problem.

Is it creating the file or not. n if it is then what is it writing to the file.

Also plz tell me the version u r using

@Manjish

Sorry for Double posting but I just saw your post after I posted my reply,

I didn't know that it created ak.txt in C drive because my first script created ak.txt on the same folder with the script and I looked for ak.txt on the wrong place. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
