Hi

I want to replace the hard code values in my script with some variables.

Can I use the environment variable concept here as we use in QTP?

If yes they i request to let me know the way i can use it

do i have to create a xml file with variable and value combination?

thanks in advance

Environment variables are meant more for sharing information between child processes.

If you are asking how you can import some "set up" list of variables, there are plenty of ways. INI files are one of the most common. AutoIt has built in INI support.

RegWrite(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment" , $var , "REG_SZ" , $val)

this will set env variables to the machine.

Edit: Envset works for child process also as stated above, this will work for anything program that you run on the machine

Dating a girl is just like writing software. Everything's going to work just fine in the testing lab (dating), but as soon as you have contract with a customer (marriage), then your program (life) is going to be facing new situations you never expected. You'll be forced to patch the code (admit you're wrong) and then the code (wife) will just end up all bloated and unmaintainable in the end.
