GUI crashed when re-using it

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I've got a GUI with some checkboxes and a button that executes a procedure when it's pressed. When the procedure is completed, if i hit again the button the GUI crashes saying that an array is not initialized. The array is global and it was filled with the values I got from the GUI on the first run, and because I don't clear it I would expect to have the same content on the second one, so I'm puzzled.

Do you have any idea on why this happens? How do work this around?

Thanks a lot!

It is the "ContinueLoop" on line 234982 that is causing the problem. :graduated:

If you want a more sensible answer, please post your code!

I will be amazed if the problem happens to be with line 234982 :graduated: Then I am convinced you're psychic!

You're right, I didn't post any code.. :(

The array is declared

Global $Sequence[5][5]

Checkboxes are created with something like this

for $i=0 to 4 step 1
    $FilterLabel="Filter #" & $i

This is the function where I get the error

Func ReadExposureMatrix ()
    for $FilterNo=0 to 4 Step 1
        if (GUICtrlRead($Sequence[$FilterNo][0])==$GUI_CHECKED) Then
        $ExposureMatrix[$FilterNo][1]=GUICtrlRead ( $Sequence[$FilterNo][1] )*1000
        $ExposureMatrix[$FilterNo][2]=GUICtrlRead ( $Sequence[$FilterNo][2] )
        $ExposureMatrix[$FilterNo][3]=GUICtrlRead ( $Sequence[$FilterNo][3] )
        $ExposureMatrix[$FilterNo][4]=GUICtrlRead ( $Sequence[$FilterNo][4] )

In particular the error is pointing at this line

if (GUICtrlRead($Sequence[$FilterNo][0])==$GUI_CHECKED) Then

Thanks once again :graduated:

Note that

if (GUICtrlRead($Sequence[$FilterNo][0])==$GUI_CHECKED) Then

is not the proper way to check control states, because they are bit flags. Try this:

If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Sequence[$FilterNo][0]), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then

(BTW C-style '==' is only used in AutoIt for case sensitive string compares)

hope that helps,
