How do I assign a variable to an array element?

7 posts in this topic

I feel like this should be easy, but I've had a hell of a time trying to figure out how to assign a variable to the output of wingetpos. I searched for about an hour and couldn't find anything conclusive.

This code isn't correct, but I'd like to have it setup to something like the following

$winpos = WinGetPos("HP OpenView ServiceCenter - Incident Queue:", "Open Incidents Assigned To My Branch")

$winposhorizontal = $winpos[0]

Thanks for reading.

That's perfect, but just get rid of the second quotes in WinGetPos.

Try this:

$winpos = WinGetPos("HP OpenView ServiceCenter - Incident Queue:", "")

$winposhorizontal = $winpos[0]
$winposvertical = $winpos[1]

MsgBox(0, "", $winposhorizontal & ":" & $winposvertical)

It's working!

gte,

There is nothing wrong with your syntax. ;)

What error do you get? Are you sure the 2 quotes are correct? Check with the Au3Info tool. If they are not correct then WinGetPos will fail and you do not have an array to access. Try something like this to check on that:

$winpos = WinGetPos("HP OpenView ServiceCenter - Incident Queue:", "Open Incidents Assigned To My Branch")
If Not IsArray($winpos) Then MsgBox(0, "Error", "No position found")
$winposhorizontal = $winpos[0]

Looking forward to the next instalment. :evil:

Thanks Melba/Kiti

Here is the error message I'm getting

C:\Documents and Settings\668692\My Documents\Work Stuff\AutoIt\testing\caprs2testing.au3 (394) : ==> Subscript used with non-Array variable.:

$winposhorizontal = $winpos[0]

$winposhorizontal = $winpos^ ERROR

And the function

Func _verifywinposition()

Global $SM_VIRTUALWIDTH = 78

$VirtualDesktopWidth = DLLCall("user32.dll", "int", "GetSystemMetrics", "int", $SM_VIRTUALWIDTH)

$VirtualDesktopWidth = $VirtualDesktopWidth[0]

If WinExists("HP OpenView ServiceCenter - Incident Queue:", "Open Incidents Assigned To My Branch") Then

$winpos = WinGetPos("HP OpenView ServiceCenter - Incident Queue:", "Open Incidents Assigned To My Branch")

$winposhorizontal = $winpos[0]

If $winposhorizontal >= ($VirtualDesktopWidth - 250) Then

WinMove("HP OpenView ServiceCenter - Incident Queue:", "", $caprswindowlocation[0], $caprswindowlocation[1])

ConsoleWrite("Had to reset window position location to 500 less than " & $VirtualDesktopWidth & @CRLF)

EndIf

EndIf

EndFunc

That's perfect, but just get rid of the second quotes in WinGetPos.

Try this:

$winpos = WinGetPos("HP OpenView ServiceCenter - Incident Queue:", "")

$winposhorizontal = $winpos[0]
$winposvertical = $winpos[1]

MsgBox(0, "", $winposhorizontal & ":" & $winposvertical)

It's working!

gte,

That error is telling you that $winpos is not an array, as I suspected. So we can safely say that WinGetPos is not finding your window.

Have you checked the 2 quotes you use to identify the window with the Au3Info tool yet? If you get those wrong, it will never work! ;)

Edit: OK, I see from your edit that you have solved it by checking if the window exists. Good idea! :evil:

Yes, you were right as usual Melba :evil:

Thanks again for the guidance, I think this script is finally ready to go!
