  • ini end of file space

    When editing an ini file in certain cases I need to use the text editor, but it only leaves one blank space at the end of the ini file how can I add more than that.
    Also when I use the ini editor, it wont let me use brackets is there any way around this?

    Re: ini end of file space

    Hi,

    If you want to add a blank line to the end of an INI file (using Setup Factory 6.0) simply use an INSERT TEXT LINE action. Use -1 as the line number and a space as your line to insert.

    It appears that you are using Setup Factory 5.0 so try using a TEXT FILE COMMAND to add a blank line top the end of your INI file. Although I am wondering why you would want to add blank lines to an INI file?

    As for your second question, you are using Setup Factory 5.0 correct? And you want to use square brackets ([]) in your Key name? Are you sue it is correct to have square brackets in your key names?

    mark.

      Yes I am Using SF 5.0, and yes I have some keys in an *.ini file that have a bracketed number as part of the key but does not encase the whole key, if brackets can be used in the ini editor please forward the info.

      thank you for all your help.

        Hi,

        So you have some keys in your INI file in the following format:

        INIKey[2]=SomeValue

        Is that correct? As far as I understand it, square brackets are not allowed in Key Names. Perhaps you could use:

        INIKey(2)=SomeVlaue
