Script to accept range above certain number..

Recommended Posts

Thudo

Trying to put a range where the user cannot input a value higher than X. In this case, any number less than 5 is not accepted.

Local $iMinTime = 5
    
    ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    ; Read Timeout input
    $tidle = GUICtrlRead($timeidle)
    ; Check value
    If _CheckMinimumIdleTime($tidle, $iMinTime) = 0 Then
        $Error = "Timeout must be no less than 5 minutes: "
        $Error &= "Please change the time."
        MsgBox(48, "Error", $Error)
        GUICtrlSetData($timeidle, "")
        Return
    EndIf

Func _CheckMinimumIdleTime($tidle, $iMinTime)

    Local $iResult = StringRegExp($tidle, $iMinTime)
    If @error = 0 Then
        Return SetError(0, 0, ($iResult <> 0))
    Else
        Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>_CheckMinimumIdleTime
However it only is accepting the value of 5. I need it to accept values 5 and greater and obviously nothing less than 5. Yeah I know this is likely stupid-easy. I've tried to create an array and switch/case for Local $iMinTime = 5 but that hasn't worked. As an FYI.. GUICtrlRead($timeidle) is when the user inputs the value to be checked.

You just need an edit like this?

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Global $iMinTime = 5, $status

GUICreate("")
$TimeIdle = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 20, 10, 60)
$btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("SET VALUE", 10, 40, 80, 18 ,$BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON)
$message = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 70, 180, 16)
GUISetState()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = -3 then Exit
    If $msg = $btn Then $status = _EditTimeIdle()
    If $status Then
        MsgBox(1,"","process the good value")
        $status = 0
    EndIf
WEnd

Func _EditTimeIdle()
    Local $tidle = GUICtrlRead($TimeIdle)
    If $tidle < $iMinTime Then
        GUICtrlSetData($message, "VALUE MUST BE 5 OR GREATER")
        GUICtrlSetData($timeidle, "")
        GUICtrlSetState($timeidle, $GUI_FOCUS)
        Return
    Else
        GUICtrlSetData($message, "")
    EndIf
    Return $tidle
EndFunc

Thanks Spiff but I only need detection code as I already have the GUI buttons already placed which link off GUICtrlRead($timeidle). You'll also notice I have prompt boxes coming up to tell the user whats invalid. Those must be maintained.

(Detection) code like this?

If GUICtrlRead($timeidle) < $iMinTime Then
    $Error = "Timeout must be no less than 5 minutes: "
    $Error &= "Please change the time."
    MsgBox(48, "Error", $Error)
    GUICtrlSetData($timeidle, "")
EndIf

;) I think I need a twinkie.. I over-complicated the original script. Gah.. Where is Jason to Chainsaw me Texan stylez.. :)

Thanks SOMD! Happy 13ths today to you.

Final script:

Local $iMinTime = 7
    ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    ; Read Timeout input
    $tidle = GUICtrlRead($timeidle)
    ; Check value
    If GUICtrlRead($timeidle) < $iMinTime then
        $Error = "Timeout must be no less than 7 minutes: "
        $Error &= "Please change the time."
        MsgBox(48, "Error", $Error)
        GUICtrlSetData($timeidle, "")
        Return
    EndIf
