I want AutoIt to be able to send a variable and the variable be defined out of a list... something like this:

$x = 1 - 4

Case of 1 - 4
1 = response 1 
2 = response 2
3 = response 3
4 = response 4

Send("$x")

Something like that.

craigjohnson,

First, welcome to the AutoIt forums. :(

When you post here it always helps if you have had a go at solving your problems beforehand - no-one is too keen to help the "code it for me" brigade. :D

Before suggesting suitable functions to study in the Help file, what exactly are you looking to do? What keys do you want to use to select these variables? Where are you Sending the selected variables? What else is going on at the time? :graduated:

Once we have these answers we can better advise you on how to progress. :D

instead of sending a constant like send("hey") I want it to send something like "hey" "Hows it going?" or "who are you" and be defined as a variable. so every time it sends something it sends either "hey", "hows it going?" or "Who are you?"

craigjohnson,

That much I understood. :D

What about the other questions? :graduated:

What keys do you want to use to select these variables? Where are you Sending the selected variables? What else is going on at the time?

P.S. When you reply please use the "Add Reply" button at the top and bottom of the page rather then the "Reply" button in the post itself. That way you do not get the contents of the previous post quoted in your reply and the whole thread becomes easier to read. :(

Switch $x
Case 1
    $text = "hey"
Case 2
    $text = "ho"
Case 3
    $text = "hi"
Case 4
    $text = "something else that starts with h"
EndSwitch

Send($text)

What am I doing wrong? I declared $x and $text as variables and all it did was straight send "$text" instead of one of the cases

How do you set $x?

You are probably putting "$text" in quotes as you wrote it above. Don't do that.
