reading multiple Checkboxes

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi there

yep it's my first post!

basically I'm trying to write a script that will allow me to check (tick) certain checkboxes (server names) then press a button which will copy files to the selected servers. I've managed so far to to do that but I would like to be able to pop a message up if no servers are selected when the "copy" button was clicked. All I can manage at the moment is the following.

if BitAND(GUICtrlRead($checkC1), $gui_unchecked) and BitAND(GUICtrlRead($checkC2), $gui_unchecked) and BitAND(GUICtrlRead($checkC3), $gui_unchecked) and BitAND(GUICtrlRead($checkC4), $gui_unchecked) and BitAND(GUICtrlRead($checkC5), $gui_unchecked) and BitAND(GUICtrlRead($checkC6), $gui_unchecked) and BitAND(GUICtrlRead($checkC7), $gui_unchecked) and BitAND(GUICtrlRead($checkC8), $gui_unchecked) Then
    MsgBox(4096, "Test", "no servers selected")
    Else
    MsgBox(4096, "Test", "copy files")
    EndIf

as you can see it's a long winded way so i would like to change it to a variable like $checkc[8] (number of check boxes)

hope this makes sense

I can post all my code if necessary

thanks

What you could do is make your checkboxes a 1D array so you can loop through them. Just do a loop that checks each checkbox state that sets some boolean to true if it sees one that is checked. The boolean's default value before the start of the loop would be false, of course.

Good first post, and welcome to AutoIt.

You should have all your checkbox control IDs in an array instead of separate variables. Then the check (or any thing else you need to do to them) can be done with a simple loop:

; $avCheck array contains all the checkbox control IDs
$fSelection = False
For $n = 0 To UBound($avCheck) - 1
    If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($avCheck[$n]), $GUI_CHECKED) Then
        $fSelection = True
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next
    
If $fSelection Then 
    MsgBox(4096, "Test", "copy files")
Else
    MsgBox(4096, "Test", "no servers selected")
EndIf

:)

Good news!

Managed to change most of my script now to using variables after working out to declare variable ( for example "dim $checkbox[8]" )

and now working ok. still trying to understand the UBound command

I didnt find a way to change this command to variable but not sure if I spent long enough looking

does anyone no a better way to do it see code below

If $fSelection Then
    $answer = msgBox(36, 'Copy Files to Citrix servers', 'Are you sure you want to copy E-Packs files to the selected servers?')
        if $answer = 6 then
            $status1 = GUICtrlRead($checkbox[0])
            $status2 = GUICtrlRead($checkbox[1])
            $status3 = GUICtrlRead($checkbox[2])
            $status4 = GUICtrlRead($checkbox[3])
            $status5 = GUICtrlRead($checkbox[4])
            $status6 = GUICtrlRead($checkbox[5])
            $status7 = GUICtrlRead($checkbox[6])
            $status8 = GUICtrlRead($checkbox[7])

            If $status1 = 1 then call ("o1copy")
            If $status2 = 1 then call ("o2copy")
            If $status3 = 1 then call ("o3copy")
            If $status4 = 1 then call ("o4copy")
            If $status5 = 1 then call ("o5copy")
            If $status6 = 1 then call ("o6copy")
        endif
        if $answer = 7 Then
        EndIf

second thoughts i'll post the whole script might be easier to determine what I am trying to do!

Hi,

suggestions for 1st part and a bit of 2nd:

If $fSelection Then
    $answer = msgBox(36, 'Copy Files to Citrix servers', 'Are you sure you want to copy E-Packs files to the selected servers?')
    if $answer = 6 then
        For $i = 0 To UBound ($checkbox) - 1
            Assign ("status" & $i + 1, GUICtrlRead($checkbox[$i])
        Next
        
        For $i = 1 to UBound ($checkbox)    
            If Eval ("status" & $i) = 1 Then
                ;Call ("o" & $i & "copy") ; if you want to call the functions directly, remove ; before the call and comment or delete the following DirCopy statement
                DirCopy("C:\Temp\test\" & $i, "C:\Temp\end", 1) ; if you need only the DirCopy 
            EndIf
        Next
    EndIf
    if $answer = 7 Then      
    EndIf

The UBound function is pretty well explained in help file!

;-))
