Obtaining a multiple using a counter

Recommended Posts

readmedottxt

Here's my predicament - I have a script that uses a counter in a loop, eg:

$i = $i + 1

I need a trigger once every three, five and seven numbers. Is there a function to do this or would i need to divide $i by the trigger and work out if its a whole number?

Thanks

This does work, but is it the best way to do it?

$RetVal = $i / 5
if Round($RetVal) = $RetVal Then
    GUICtrlSetData($Report, "Increment: " & $i)
EndIf

Try using the modulo (remainder).

For $i = 1 To 10
    If Mod($i, 3) == 0 Then
        MsgBox(0x2000, "3rd Number", $i)
    ElseIf Mod($i, 5) == 0 Then
        MsgBox(0x2000, "5th Number", $i)
    ElseIf Mod($i, 7) == 0 Then
        MsgBox(0x2000, "7th Number", $i)
    EndIf
Next

I hadn't used modulo since leaving school!

Thank you - it's applied a solution in a very intelligent way.
