IniFileWrite - method of object Pm
Writing the item into the *.ini file.
IniFileWrite(sFile As String, sSection As String, sKey As String, vWrite As Variant) As Boolean
b = Pm.IniFileWrite(sFile, sSection, sKey, vWrite)
|sFile||(String) file name (with the path). If a full path is not entered, it is completed relatively according to the application file folder. |
It is recommended to use the PROMOTIC path syntax - see PROMOTIC path to files and folders.
|sSection||(String) Section name (the section is in INI file in the brackets) without the brackets|
|sKey||(String) Key name of the written item|
|vWrite||(Variant) Written value|
true - operation passed successfully
false - operation failed
This way of storing the values is appropriate for the portion store of single configurations or for the store of only a few values. It is not suitable for the real-time store of bigger amount of values because the operation is slow (internally the entire INI file has to be read, the key searched, overwritten and the entire INI file saved). The operation must be applied for each item (for each key value) separately. For the store of bigger amount of values it is better to use, for example, the Pm.FileTextWrite
method where the output format can be identical with the INI file, only data are written together.
This method is not
functional for Web panels
Pm.IniFileWrite "#cfg:file.ini", "Data", "Value1", "4.56"
