Charlz Posted March 9, 2011 Share Posted March 9, 2011 Heya there! For starters, I am somewhat new to Autoit, but I can still make a program or two.... However, recently I have tried to make a program which would solve basic Trigonometry problems (so I can give it as a parting gift to some of my friends ) This program is meant to work out the side measurements and angles of triangles in general, using the laws of sine. When I use the "Go" function in SciTe, there were no reported errors, so I compiled the file... Ran the program, input the values (sufficient to solve for the rest), but an error comes up that one of the variables was not declared, even after I ran through the whole script numerous times.... (a copy of the script is available, in case the following does not work...) expandcollapse popup;TRIG HELPER PROGRAM - SINE ;vars = x,y,z angX, angY,angZ ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; ;Vars $x = InputBox ("Trig Helper - Sine","input value of side 'x' (opposite angle X)"&@CRLF&"If there is no value, input 'x'") $y = InputBox ("Trig Helper - Sine","input value of side 'y' (opposite angle Y)"&@CRLF&"If there is no value, input 'x'") $z = InputBox ("Trig Helper - Sine","input value of side 'z' (opposite angle Z)"&@CRLF&"If there is no value, input 'x'") $angX = InputBox ("Trig Helper - Sine","input value of angle 'X' (opposite side x)"&@CRLF&"If there is no value, input 'x'") $angY = InputBox ("Trig Helper - Sine","input value of angle 'Y' (opposite side y)"&@CRLF&"If there is no value, input 'x'") $angZ = InputBox ("Trig Helper - Sine","input value of angle 'Z' (opposite side z)"&@CRLF&"If there is no value, input 'x'") ;Vars end MsgBox (1,"Trig Helper - Sine","The following info is what was input"&@CRLF&"side x = "&$x&" / "&"Angle X = "&$angX&@CRLF&"side y = "&$y&" / "&"Angle Y = "&$angY&@CRLF&"side z = "&$z&" / "&"Angle Z = "&$angZ) ;COMPUTATION SECTION $pi = 3.14159265358979 $degToRad = $pi / 180 if $x = "x" Then $valx1 = (($y * Sin ($angX * $degToRad)/Sin($angY * $degToRad))) $valx2 = (($z * Sin ($angX * $degToRad)/Sin($angZ * $degToRad))) EndIf if $y = "x" Then $valy1 = (($x * Sin ($angY * $degToRad)/Sin($angX * $degToRad))) $valy2 = (($z * Sin ($angY * $degToRad)/Sin($angZ * $degToRad))) EndIf if $z = "x" Then $valz1 = (($x * Sin ($angZ * $degToRad)/Sin($angX * $degToRad))) $valz2 = (($y * Sin ($angZ * $degToRad)/Sin($angY * $degToRad))) EndIf ;COMPUTATION SECTION END MsgBox (1,"Trig Helper - Sine","The following has been solved"&@CRLF&"If there are two values for any side/angle, then the non-zero value is the correct one"&@CRLF&"side x = "&$valx1&" / "&$valx2&" /~\ "&"Angle X = "&$angX&@CRLF&"side y = "&$valy1&" / "&$valy2&" /~\ "&"Angle Y = "&$angY&@CRLF&"side z = "&$valz1&" / "&$valz2&" /~\ "&"Angle Z = "&$angZ) ExitTrig helper - Sine ALT.au3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Charlz Posted March 9, 2011 Author Share Posted March 9, 2011 Quick note; Any and all help/suggestions are very welcome! Thanks!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Developers Jos Posted March 9, 2011 Developers Share Posted March 9, 2011 The variables $valx1 and $valx2 are only set (defined) when the first IF is true. Just define all 6 variables a the top.

I tried to make all the variables "global" hoping it would work...But yea, your idea should work!!!Thanks man!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Charlz Posted March 11, 2011 Author Share Posted March 11, 2011 (edited) Firstly, you have my gratitude for helping with the previous problem, but alas, another has come up.... I tried to use "Asin" to find the value of an angle, however a snytax error comes up when I do this.. Global $angX1 = ASin (($x * Sin ($angZ * $degToRad)/$z) Global $angX2 = ASin (($x * Sin ($angY * $degToRad)/$y) Global $angY1 = ASin (($y * Sin ($angZ * $degToRad)/$z) Global $angY2 = ASin (($y * Sin ($angX * $degToRad)/$x) Global $angZ1 = ASin (($z * Sin ($angY * $degToRad)/$y) Global $angZ2 = ASin (($z * Sin ($angX * $degToRad)/$x) please help Edited March 11, 2011 by Charlz Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Charlz Posted March 13, 2011 Author Share Posted March 13, 2011 whoops ~_~ Just went through the script again (counting the brackets, thnx Euler) and it works perfectly! Thanks again people! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
