and i have a loop that inputs each of the test names in order separated by the ,

so send ("test1")

and then loop done, next time it sends test2 instead..

Can you be a little bit more specific?

Also, please post your current code here so I can understand what you mean better.

What you want to be doing is using stringsplit(), to read your string into an array, using the comma as the delininator.

You can then loop through the array and send each 'test' in whatever order you desire.

Hello pezo89,

I am not sure of what your asking, but guessing, I think your trying to split a string and send the items one at a time. If that is correct something like this would help you:

$string = 'Test1,Test2,Test3'

$sArray = StringSplit($string,',',2) ;splits string where commas are place into an array that is 0-based 

For $i = 0 to UBound($string)-1
    Send($sArray[$i])
Next

Or he can just set the focus to a different input each time while using a seperate Send() for each.

But this works well too, just didn't really know what he meant.

how to explain... erm.. the code as it stands now

Func add2()

$write1 = InputBox("Please input the name(s)","Please seperate the names with ,")
add2()
while 1
MouseClick("left", 190,49,1,100)
MouseClick("left",  179,45,1,100)
MouseClick("left",  221,52,1,100) ;Search bar
send ($write1)
MouseClick("left",   321,51,1,100) ; Search button OK

;found Name- Adding name
mouseclick ("right",954,576,1,100)
MouseClick("left",1018,630,1,100)
MouseClick("left",  920,490,1,100);Settings1 

;Watchlist on
MouseClick("left",  844,533,1,100)
;done

;Push Add contact
MouseClick("left",  915,646,1,100)
EndFunc
wend

so lets say i type in Andreas and Tom.. this way "Andreas,Tom"

then it does two things.

1 = change the while run to the number of names typed into the inputbox (for this example 2)

2 = sends Andreas to the $write1 command, and on the second run it sends Tom into the $write1 command

*hope this explains it abit*

Basically your solution to this is what the users aboved mentioned, use an array.

Hello pezo89,

Your structure is all wrong. First, your calling your function from within itself. While possible, it is not recommended due to recursion, and depending on the rest of your script, It may never run. Second, you ended the function before you ended the loop. I have made a few modifications, that will make it functional, and how I believe you want it.

Local $input1
$input1 = InputBox("Please input the name(s)","Please seperate the names with ,")
add2()

Func add2()
    $write1 = StringSplit($input1,',',2)

    For $i = 0 To UBound($write1)-1
        MouseClick("left", 190,49,1,100)
        MouseClick("left",  179,45,1,100)
        MouseClick("left",  221,52,1,100) ;Search bar
        send ($write1[$i])
        MouseClick("left",   321,51,1,100) ; Search button OK

        ;found Name- Adding name
        mouseclick ("right",954,576,1,100)
        MouseClick("left",1018,630,1,100)
        MouseClick("left",  920,490,1,100);Settings1 

        ;Watchlist on
        MouseClick("left",  844,533,1,100)
        ;done

        ;Push Add contact
        MouseClick("left",  915,646,1,100)
    Next
EndFunc

It works like a charm. Thanks alot for the help fellas, really appriciate it! :(

btw, (as it seems you guys are really experienced) is there any 'easy' fix to this input form?

only beeing able to select one of the checkboxes, and it does a diffrent loop deppendant on wtch one is selected

or if ya can point me in the right direction please :graduated:

pezo89,

I am glad to see that you are atleast providing an example of the code. However, when asking for help you need to be more descriptive, explaining in full what it is that your attempting to do, what problem your having, and what results your expecting. Having all the information is easier to help, just like having all the parts is handy in repairing a vehicle.

Now If I understand your qeustion correctly, you want the only one checkbox to be selected and if it is, then the other 2 to remain unchecked. If I am correct, there are 2 suggestions to correct this.

First, instead of using CheckBoxes, use Radio buttons such as GUICtrlCreateRadio(). These buttons act as a group, unless you code them not to, and do exactly what I think your asking for.

Second, Would be to include a GUICtrlRead() and Switch into your While Loop, and if one is checked, then uncheck the other 2.

I would suggest going with the radio buttons since it would be easier to incorporate into your script, unless you need them to be check boxes for whatever reason.

and have 3 diffrent ie: func deppending on witch f the 3 buttons that is selected,

but func add2 & 3 are always the same thou

    $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 264, 64, 161, 49, $WS_GROUP)

 if $Button1=0 Then
     MsgBox(0,"test","test")
      EndIf

        For $i = 0 To 2
        GUICtrlSetState($checkCN[$i][1], $GUI_DISABLE)
        GUICtrlSetState($checkCN[$i][2], $GUI_DISABLE)
            GUISetState()


    Local $iCurrSel = 7

    ; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
            Case $msg = $Button1
                MsgBox(0,"test","test")

pezo89,

This is what I am talking about, you need to give more information. What activates these funtions? does the radio buttons, does the input, does the 'Button1'? I don't know how to help you place your function calls without this knowledge. For this example I will assume its 'Button1' that searches for the checked radio button, then performs the selected function.

As for your Functions place them at the end of your script.

Why do you have 2 While loops there? The Second one is not needed, and the First one should be place after you set the GUI state.

Your code structure is all wrong!!! No offense meant; but how did you get to 143 posts in almost 2 years, and still you don't understand structure, functions, or placement of custom functions?

What I suggest is spending some time reading the 'Help File' and taking part in some tutorials. There are many tutorials on You Tube along with a Tutorial built in AutoIt in Example section of the Forums called: 'AutoIt 1-2-3'

I know you just want to jump right into it, but this is one of those things in life that pay off more by doing the studying first. It will save you time, and us as well.
