New user, need help, what function do I use

4 posts in this topic

Hello, another new user here with basically zero scripting experience and looking for help. What I would like to do is have an Input Box that if the user clicks "No" it will go back to my "DVB1" input box and ask them to reenter the IP address. I'm pretty sure I need to create a function or loop (or something else), but I don't know what. I've tried to experiment with the different options, but can't figure it out. If someone could at least tell me if I need to create an array or tell me what function or whatever it might be to get me going in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated, I should be able to figure it out from there.

Here is currently what I have and works if the user doesn't make a mistake and clicks "Yes" on the message box :D:

Dim $msg1, $DVB1

    $DVB1 = InputBox('DVB1', 'Enter the IP address for DVB1')
        Sleep(500)
    $msg1 = msgbox(3, "DVB1", "Is this correct? " & $DVB1)
        If $msg1 = True Then
            Sleep(1000)
            Send($DVB1)
        EndIf

Maybe something like this?

Dim $msg1, $DVB1


While 1
    $DVB1 = InputBox('DVB1', 'Enter the IP address for DVB1')
    Sleep(500)
    $msg1 = MsgBox(3, "DVB1", "Is this correct? " & $DVB1)
    If $msg1 <> 7 Then ExitLoop
WEnd
Sleep(1000)
Send($DVB1)

peterj04,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :D

Take a look at this:

Dim $DVB1

While 1
    $DVB1 = InputBox('DVB1', 'Enter the IP address for DVB1')

    ; check if anything was actually entered
    If $DVB1 <> "" Then

        ; what button was pressed?
        Switch msgbox(3, "DVB1", "Is this correct? " & $DVB1)

            Case 6 ; yes
                Sleep(1000)
                Send($DVB1)
                ; and leave the loop to carry on below
                ExitLoop

            Case 7 ; no
                ; try again

            Case 2 ; cancel
                ; give up
                Exit

        EndSwitch
    EndIf

WEnd

; pressing Yes will get you to here

Please ask if anything is unclear. :huggles:
