GUICtrlCreateInput Help

Recommended Posts


This is the third Post im making here asking for help(and each time the help I recieved worked and solved the problem, so if anyone who helped me before is reading this, thank you again)

The program I'm writting works fine up until the point it asks you which page you want to start on on a usersearch on the site vampirefreaks.

the code below is the function im using:

Func pagestart()
    Local $page1, $btn, $msg, $pagestart1

    $pagestart1 = GUICreate("Select what page to start on:", 200, 60)
    $pagestart1 = GUISetStyle($WS_THICKFRAME)
    $page1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("1", 0, 0, 200, 20)
    $btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ok", 65, 20, 60, 20)


    $msg = 0
    While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
            Case $msg = $btn
                $page = $page1

$oIE = _IECreate ("http://search.vampirefreaks.com/search_results.php?pg="&$page&"&sex="&$gender&"&search_city=&search_state=&search_state2=&search_country=&range=10&zipcode=&min_age=&max_age=&sexuality=0&sortby="&$sortby&"&only_pics=1&invite=cult&invite_to=Vocal_Violence")

$page is what needs to be changed to whatever the person inputs into the GUI

as you can see $page1 is the variable associated with the input box, and when you click the "ok" button i have $page = $page1

I've written in message boxes to test it by displaying the value of $page.

If i chose 8 for example, and pressed "ok" then a message box would pop up and display the number 8, so i know $page gets changed to 8.

However, when the webpage opens up it will ALWAYS go to page 3, no matter what number i put into the input field.

If i place a message box after it opens up the webpage to view the value of $page it still returns a value of 8.

So how would I go about making it so it would go to the page that the user specifies?

$page1 is going to be the control ID of the input and not the data inside it.

Tyr using $page = GuiCtrlRead($page1)

This will get the data from control ID $page1 instead of returning the control ID number.
