6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi all.

I'm making a new program, thats uses a list of a names. I saved them into ini file.

This is my question. How I can get AutoIT to read names from the list one-by-one.

Example ;

List:

Marry

Jane

Patric

Eric

I want to AutoIT read and use send function and make a loop of it, that

ex.

send("marry")

sleep(500)

send("Jane") ; next position from a list

sleep(500)

Send("Patric") ; next, the 3rd position

I hope that you understand me. Sorry 4 my crappy english

Wiz.

Post an example of the Ini file that you have.

Also take a look at IniReadSection() and using loops. They are both in the help file.

So what you really mean is you don't have them saved in a proprly structured ini file, just in a flat text file with the ini extension.

$aText = StringRegExp(FileRead("C:\MyFile.ini"), "(.*)(?:\v|\z)", 3)
For $i = 0 To Ubound($aText) -1
   MsgBox(0, "Test Result", $aText[$i])
Next

I was in the middle of posting something else for you when Jon pulled the wrong knob again and the forums went down so here you go.

If you have other "Sections" in that file then You might want to use something like this instead.

$aSec = StringRegExp(FileRead("C:\myfile.ini"), "(?i)(?s)\[names\]\v(.+?)(?:\[|$)", 1)
If NOT @Error Then
    $aText = StringRegExp(StringStripWS($aSec[0], 2), "(.*)(?:\v|\z)", 3)
    For $i = 0 To Ubound($aText) -1
        If $aText[$i] <> "" Then MsgBox(0, "Test Result", $aText[$i])
    Next
EndIf

This was written on the fly so some tuneup may be required.
