Declare consecutive Global variables is there an easy way?

Recommended Posts


I need to find a way of declaring approx 200+ consecutive variables in a simpler way than typing them all individually like I have at present (110 so far ;) ) eg...

global $checkbox1, $checkbox2, $checkbox3 ;etc etc etc

I know this is not what is correct but is the only way I can think of doing it (to no avail), apologies for my lack of knowledge have only been using autoit for the last 3 days, I cannot find anything in the help files or on the forum for this.

For $y = 1 to 200
$x = $x+1
Global $Checkbox&$x

I have already looked at The global array function and cannot work it out.....

I cannot workout the $array[subscript 1]...[subscript n] [ = initializer ]

what values would these need to be set at if I wanted $Checkbox1 to $Checkbox200 I have tried

Global $Checkbox[1][200]

but this does not work as I said I am new to autoit and have not worked out the terminology quite yet

Global $Checkbox[200]
For $I = 0 to 199 ;~ Arrays are zero based
       $Checkbox[$I] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox ( "text", 10, 10 * $I) ;~ Just an example of how to use the variable

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
