Read and paste a text from file.

Recommended Posts

Hi pretty new to thsi autoit, i havent been working with it since V2, and my memory is pretty bad. So now im about to start with it again.

So here is my question how do i, copy a part of a text from a file without opening the file. And paste in the window that is active at the time.

Whould it be more easy to copy a section from a ini file ?

I hope some of you could help me on this, a little example code.

Best regards ME.

Look in the help file for 'FileRead' and get back here if you need more help (kinda busy, but if you need it I don't mind :lmao:)

Weel i got so far that i can make it write the txt into the aplication.

But it makes a extra line break (On line break + the line thats allready is i the file)

so far my codes looks like this

HotKeySet("^!x", "Exit")
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "Insert")
$file = FileOpen("Text.txt", 0)


Func MyExit()
    Exit 
EndFunc 


If $file = -1 Then
MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
Exit
EndIf


Func insert()
While 1
    $Text = FileRead($file, 1)
    If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
    send ($Text)
Wend
fileclose ($file)
EndFunc

Hi,

Try this ?

HotKeySet("^!x", "Exit")
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "Insert")
$file = FileOpen("Text.txt", 0)


Func MyExit()
    Exit
EndFunc


If $file = -1 Then
MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
Exit
EndIf


Func insert()
While 1
    $Text = FileRead($file, 1)
    If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
    send (StringStripCR($Text))
Wend
fileclose ($file)
EndFunc
