.ini To Treeview

Recommended Posts

netbadbug

I want to make a script that reads a .ini file and makes a TreeView from it like this:

Part1 - this is not the trinky thing

users.ini file

[1]
ParentName=Name1
[1-1]
ChildName=ChildName1
[1-2]
ChildName=ChildName2
[2]
ParentName=Name2
[2-1]
ChildName=ChildName3

it has to make a treeview like this

TreeView
   Name1
         |-ChildName1
         |-ChildName2
   Name2
         |-ChildName3

netbadbug,

First, welcome to the AutoIt forums.

When you post here it always helps if you have had a go at solving your problems beforehand. Having some code to work on is a great help - and no-one here is too keen to help the "code it for me" brigade.

Reading the Help file (at least the first few sections - Using AutoIt, Tutorials and the first couple of References) will help you enormously. You should also look at the excellent tutorials that you will find here and here. Using the Search facility is also a good tip as there is a pretty good chance your question (or part of it) has been asked before. Look for the "Search" button to the right in the title bar.

Some pointers that may help you make a start on your project:

Look at how the initial GUICtrlCreateTreeView and subsequent GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem commands work together to create a tree. As you have indicated, you will need to structure your ini file carefully to get the right results. Perhaps you might like to try something like this:

[Parents]
Parent1=Tom
Parent2=Dick
Parent3=Harry
[Tom]
ChildName1=Pugh
ChildName2=Pew
[Dick]
ChildName1=Barney McGrew
ChildName2=Cuthbert
[Harry]
ChildName1=Dibble
ChildName2=Grubb

Such a structure would let you use IniReadSection to get the data easily into Autoit created arrays - which you could use with For...Next loops to create your tree without too much difficulty.

Give it a try yourself and see how you get on. If you run into problems - post your code and explain what is not right. Good luck!
