Filenames in mail message text

Postby Joerg » Tue Dec 17, 2013 2:21 am

Hello,

I try to put a file list into message text. If I use a filelist var I've got the complete path and file name. With a loop I concat the single filenames (name attribut) into a string var. Additional a new line and CR cahr. But if i put this var into my mail message text, there is no CR.

How can I produce a little tab with the filenames within message text?

with regards
Joerg

Hi Joerg,

You can try this project, It will loop through the files in a path and return a variable called files which contains all of the files with a tab at the start and CRLF at the end.

Code: Select all
   file.txt
   test.pub
   create.sh
   as2testfile.txt
   files.xml
   Project.log
   list.csv
   testFile.txt


Code: Select all
<project name="Filenames with tabs" mainModule="Main" version="2.0">

   <module name="Main">

      <createFileList fileListVariable="fileList" version="1.0">
         <fileset dir="${path}" />
      </createFileList>

      <forEachLoop itemsVariable="${fileList}" currentItemVariable="thisFile">

         <setVariable name="files" value="${Concat(files,system.tab, String(thisFile:name), system.carriageReturn, system.lineFeed)}" version="2.0" />

      </forEachLoop>

      <sendEmail resourceId="SMTP_Resource" toList="USER@ADDRESS.TLD" version="2.0">
         <from address="FROM@ADDRESS.TLD" />
         <subject>
            <![CDATA[SOME_SUBJECT]]>
         </subject>
         <message>
            <![CDATA[${files}]]>
         </message>
      </sendEmail>

   </module>

   <variable name="path" value="/home/" description="Path to files" />
   <variable name="files" value="" description="Our list will end up here" />
</project>
