Hello All
In VO I used a class 'IniFileSpec'.
Is there a class (or modified version of 'IniFileSpec') that works with XSharp VO dialect that reads & writes .ini files? Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi Neale,
Johan, alias lumberjack, has a nice class, not sure, if it is somewhere on this site available. Maybe he jumps in ;)
Regards

Hi Neale,

Do you have the source code of this library? It should not be difficult to make it work in X#.

Hi Neale,

Yes, please send it so we can have a look. Did you get any errors when you tried to compile it in X#?

Yes a few I could sort out but the problem seems to be in the reading & writing calls.
BTW I am using XIDE.

Hi Neale,

Thanks, tried it here and it seems to compile with no changes at all, did you get any errors? Or did you get problems when running it? Can you please show some sample code using it that did not work well for you?

Hi Neale,

I run a few tests myself, I see it indeed does not work correctly at runtime, it's because of the buffers used for calling the Win32 api function GetPrivateProfileSection(). Will adjust this to work in X# and will post the updated code.

Here's the updated code. The change needed to be made had to do with the buffer passed to the Win32 calls and how this is handled (null terminated strings one after the other). Please let me know if it works well for you now!

Code: Select all

_DLL FUNC GetPrivateProfileSection_New(lpAppName AS PSZ, lpReturnedString AS BYTE[],;
	nSize AS DWORD, lpFileName AS PSZ);
	AS DWORD PASCAL:KERNEL32.GetPrivateProfileSectionA
_DLL FUNC GetPrivateProfileSectionNames_New(lpszReturnBuffer AS BYTE[], nSize AS DWORD,;
	lpFileName AS PSZ) AS DWORD PASCAL:KERNEL32.GetPrivateProfileSectionNamesA
