[SOLVED] Incorporate CALL into the script.

#1 Post by PAB » 13 May 2020 06:56

Good afternoon,

Is there any way that I can do away with the CALL cmd and incorporate it into the actual script please? . . .

Code: Select all

For /f "Tokens=*" %%G In ('wevtutil.exe el') Do (CALL :Event_Viewer_Clear_Up "%%G")
echo ^< Press ANY key to return to the Options ^> & Pause > NUL
CLS & Goto :Options

:Event_Viewer_Clear_Up

echo %1
wevtutil.exe cl %1
wevtutil.exe cl System
Thanks in advance!

What is stopping you from using wevtutil.exe in the DO portion of the FOR command?

Thanks for the reply!

I just can't seem to get it to work properly for some reason!

This is some of what I have tried . . .

Code: Select all

@echo off
for /f %%a in ('wevtutil.exe el') do wevtutil.exe el cl "%%a"
Pause

Code: Select all

@echo off
For /f %%a In ('wevtutil.exe el') Do (
wevtutil.exe echo %1 "%%a"
wevtutil.exe cl %1 "%%a"
wevtutil.exe cl System "%%a"
)
Pause

Code: Select all

@echo off
For /f %%a In ('wevtutil.exe el') Do wevtutil.exe echo %1 "%%a"
For /f %%a In ('wevtutil.exe el') Do wevtutil.exe cl %1 "%%a"
For /f %%a In ('wevtutil.exe el') Do wevtutil.exe cl System "%%a"
Pause
I obviously want it to scroll through on the cmd prompt screen like it does in the original code as it clears each item!

Thanks in advance!

OK, I think I have got it . . .

Code: Select all

@echo off
For /f "Tokens=*" %%i In ('wevtutil.exe el') Do (
rem echo wevtutil.exe cl "%%i"
echo "%%i"
wevtutil.exe cl "%%i"
wevtutil.exe cl System
)
Pause
Can you see anything wrong please?

Thanks in advance.

From an aesthetic perspective, you should indent the code inside of the for loop, but nothing bad will happen if you don't. Beyond that, I expect your code to work as you intend.

Do you mean something like this . . .

Code: Select all

@echo off
For /f "Tokens=*" %%i In ('wevtutil.exe el') Do (
   echo "%%i"
   wevtutil.exe cl "%%i"
   wevtutil.exe cl System
)
Pause
Thanks in advance.
