SAEED,

First, welcome to the AutoIt forums.

A good start - some code to work on and a clear question. I wish some others would do the same. :-)

From the Help file: "Because AutoIt lacks a "FileRename" function, use FileMove to rename a file!". So we need to get a list of all the files (your code basically does that already) and then loop through them with FileMove to change their names.

Have a look at this:

#include <Array.au3>
Global $locations = "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Pictures\"
Local $i, $get = False
Global $Found_Files[1] ; Try not to use Dim!

$Total_files = DirGetSize($locations, 3)
$Fh = FileFindFirstFile($locations & "*.*")
While 1
    $found = FileFindNextFile($Fh)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    ConsoleWrite($found & @CRLF)
    If $Found_Files[0] = "" Then
        _ArrayPush($Found_Files, $found, 1)
    Else
        _ArrayAdd($Found_Files, $found)
    EndIf
WEnd
FileClose($Fh)  ; You should close the Search file handle!

_ArrayDisplay($Found_Files, "Search Result")

For $i = 0 To UBound($Found_Files) - 1
    FileMove($locations & $Found_Files[$i], $locations & "PICTURE" & $i & ".JPG", 0)
Next

The array is now a list of all the files in your folder with their current names. The final loop then renames them using FileMove.

2 other points:

1 - You should close the search file handle when the search is over. Tha tHelpfile again: "When you have finished searching with the FileFind... functions you must call FileClose() to release the search handle."

2. Do not use Dim (unless you want to empty an existing array) - Global/Local are much better as they scope the array immediately.

Ask if you have any questions.

SAEED,

The forum is here so the whole community can benefit. If you have a problem with your "search" script, please open a new thread - that way many forum members can help and (perhaps) learn! Sending PMs asking for help is frowned upon here. ;-)

When you do post your script, please use Code tags - put [code ] before and [/code ] after your posted code (but omit the trailing space - it is only there so the tags display here).

Jos,

I had exactly the same reaction - quite made my day! :-)

Instead of renaming the files with PICTURE & $i, would it be possible to rename the files with the same name but stripped of unwanted characters? Or perhaps strip the unwanted character before it's stored in the array?

Such as...

Old Names

12345_r.tif

123456_c.tif

New Names

12345r.tif

123456c.tif

Since the original names are needed for the rename, the array should contain unaltered information. (Unless you store this elsewhere)
FileMove($locations & $Found_Files[$i], $locations & StringReplace($Found_Files[$i],  "_", ""), 0)
