Creates and fills a text file with the content of a text control or text variable (string variable, edit control in a window, Static control in a report, ...). If the file already exists, it is deleted then re-created.
Remarks:
  • The strings containing binary "0" ("\0") are supported.
  • The created text file is always in ANSI format, regardless of the platform used (PC, Pocket PC, ...). To create a text file in Unicode format on a Pocket PC, use fOpen or fCreate (see the notes).
Example
Reports and Queries
// Fills the file with the content of a variable
MyTextString is string = "This is a test" + CR + "Using fSaveText"
fSaveText("C:\Temp\MyFile.txt", MyTextString)

// EDT_LASTN_FIRSTN is an edit control
fSaveText("C:\Customers\LastFirstName.txt", EDT_LASTN_FIRSTN)

// Performs a file copy by replacing "Franc" by "Euro"
FileContent is string
FileContent = fLoadText("C:\Sales\FrancPrices.txt")
FileContent = Replace(FileContent, "Franc", "Euro")
fSaveText("C:\Sales\EuroPrices.txt", FileContent)

Operating mode in Windows Vista (and later)

If this function does not operate properly in Windows Vista (and later), check whether the file or directory used is not in one of the system directories (Windows directory or "Program Files" directory).
Indeed, in Windows Vista (and later), with the UAC mechanism (User Account Control) enabled, you must have the administrator privileges to handle and/or modify the files or directories in the system directories (Windows directory or "Program Files" directory).
Programming tip: To handle and/or modify the files or directories without administrator privileges, you should:
  • avoid writing into the Windows directory or into the "Program Files" directory,
  • use the system directory corresponding to the application (returned by SysDir associated with the srCommonAppData constant).
Remark: In Windows Vista (and later), the virtualization mechanism is used to make the applications compatible with Vista. If the file is created in a system directory without having sufficient rights, this file will actually be created in another directory (C:\Users\<LOGIN>AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Windows\). In this case, the file cannot be shared between several applications.

Equivalence

fSaveText is equivalent to the following code:
// Opens the file in read-only
f is int = fOpen("C:\MyFile.txt", foCreate)
// Writes into the file
FileContent is string = "example of text"
fWrite(f, FileContent)
// Closes the file
fClose(f)
Component : wd240std.dll
Minimum required version
  • Version 9
