Re: [nsbasic-ce] Re: Writing to file keeps overwriting

2010-02-12 Thread epankoke
Sorry that I don't recall who it was that posted it, but did you try the other 
suggestion that was given about doing a Seek to the end of the file and then 
writing? As far as I know lots of people use that control, so it should be 
pretty stable.

yes i am using 
AddObject newObjects.utilctls.SFMain, FS3 

Is there another way I could get this to work?

 My guess is that you're not using the right command to append to the 
 file, so it's simply opening the file and wiping out the contents every 
 time you call OpenFile. Unfortunately, without knowing what type of 
 object FS3 is I can't give you any more specifics.

 This code is in a command button. All the proper AddObjets are in the 
 From1_Load. 
 
 Every time I click the command button I want what ever is typed into 
 textbox1 and textbox3 to get written to a file 
 
 I enter a some info into the textboxes, tap the command button, then 
 retype some different information into the textboxs and tap the command 
 button...etc 
 
 What is happening is that only the last piece of data I type into the 
 text boxes show up in the file. 
 
 How do I get it to the information from the textboxes to save each time 
 I click the command button and not overwite. 
 
 Dim file 
 Dim abc 
 
 abc = textbox1.Text  ,  textbox3.Text  
 
 Set File = FS3.OpenFile(filename3) 
 
 File.WriteText abc,1 
 File.close

Actually, the interesting thing is that based on the details of the OpenFile 
function, the code supplied shouldn't work at all. There is a second parameter 
to OpenFile that tells how the file should be opened, and according to the help 
the default for that parameter is 0, which is Read Only.

I'm going to hazard a guess that the form_load command for FS3 was: 
AddObject newObjects.utilctls.SFMain, FS3 

The syntax given matches what's specified in 
http://www.nsbasic.com/ce/info/technotes/TN08.htm 

In that case, I would try: 
File.Seek(0,2) 

between OpenFile and WriteText. This moves 'current position in the file' to 0 
bytes offset from end of file. 

Not guaranteed to work without tweaking, but let us know if that's any help.
