Script is not saving data to XML file

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make a house system for my new server, I do understand that there are several house systems uploaded to the community but please do understand I am trying to make my own with a couple of unique features. I have been coding for quiet a long time now and what would a coder do with his relative scripting knowledge if he just downloaded what he wanted from the community?

I have tried troubleshooting this problem several times myself but I just can't figure it out. This was working fine when I first started out but now nothing is saving to the xml file. Basically is supposed to happen is the information input into the building gui (in the text fields) is saved into an xml file as a "property node". The file is saved and the script later reopens the file and loads all houses (property nodes) from the file and creates the houses.

xmlSaveFile doesn't seem to work, even though it returns true to the chatbox.

Here is some code

  
function checkData() 
    propertyData = {} 
    for i, guiElement in pairs ( buildingGUI ) do 
        if i == "field" then 
            for k, field in pairs ( guiElement ) do 
                propertyData["entMarkerX"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].entMarkerX ) 
                propertyData["entMarkerY"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].entMarkerY ) 
                propertyData["entMarkerZ"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].entMarkerZ ) 
                propertyData["entMarkerInt"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].entMarkerInt ) 
                propertyData["entMarkerDim"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].entMarkerDim ) 
                propertyData["exitMarkerX"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].exitMarkerX ) 
                propertyData["exitMarkerY"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].exitMarkerY ) 
                propertyData["exitMarkerZ"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].exitMarkerZ ) 
                propertyData["exitMarkerInt"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].exitMarkerInt ) 
                propertyData["exitMarkerDim"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].exitMarkerDim ) 
             
                propertyData["entTeleX"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].entTeleX ) 
                propertyData["entTeleY"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].entTeleY ) 
                propertyData["entTeleZ"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].entTeleZ ) 
                propertyData["entTeleRot"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].entTeleRot ) 
                propertyData["entTeleInt"] = guiGetText ( buildingGUI["field"].entTeleInt )

well, anything can be used, "MySQL,SQLite,XML"

probably even the file functions:

    fileClose 
    fileCreate  
  
    fileDelete  
  
    fileExists 
    fileFlush 
    fileGetPos 
    fileGetSize 
    fileIsEOF 
    fileOpen 
    fileRead  
  
    fileRename 
    fileSetPos 
    fileWrite

But using files you'll have to download them. More houses = bigger download.

Thank you, Jaysds for the suggestion. I will try this here in a little bit when I start my test server back up for the night. I will get back on that when I have the results.

@Anderl, I'd love to use MySQL instead but my lack of MySQL knowledge will prevent me from saving the houses this way. I've tried to learn it before but I didn't pick up on it.
