TMemIniFile

Post by rjbill »

Now I can't get this .ini stuff to work.

I originally tried writing an Integer, but it wouldn't accept the variable as an integer, no matter what I did. (WriteInteger)

So I decided to write it as a string.

nTabColumn is created using:

var nTabColumn = StrToInt (InputBox ("Tab To Column", "Tab To Column?", "0"));

Code: Select all

      TMemIniFile tiIni = TMemIniFile.Create ("TabToColumn_Settings.ini");

      //var nTabColumn = tiIni.ReadInteger ("Settings", "TabToColumn", nTabColumn);
      tiIni.WriteString ("Settings", "TabToColumn", IntToStr (nTabColumn));
                                                  
      tiIni.UpdateFile;
      tiIni.Free;
The .ini file looks like this:

Code: Select all

[Settings]
TabToColumn=TabToColumn
I've tried multiple attempts at various ways to write it and convert it.

And I couldn't find any examples.

It's fixed in the next release (v16.11).

I tested with the code below (using v16.11) and it works fine.

Code: Select all

// JScript

TMemIniFile tiIni = TMemIniFile.Create ("TabToColumn_Settings.ini");

var nTabColumn = 10;
tiIni.WriteInteger("Settings", "TabToColumn", nTabColumn);
                                            
tiIni.UpdateFile;
tiIni.Free;
[Settings]
TabToColumn=10

Okay. Thanks.

So it's been broken and no one noticed because no one tried it?

BTW -- I'm using this .ini for another Script called "TabToLastColumn",
which will use this stored value.

Unfortunately, it will have to open and read the file every time it's called, which is not ideal.

It's the only way I could see to save a STATIC value between executions.

It would be nice if there was a more internal way to do it that would be easier and faster.

Like maybe a Static Object that would hold some number of values (10?) that could be stored and retrieved per Edit Session.
