## Recommended Posts

I need some help figuring this out....

im trying to find a way to check

If \$MePos[0] = 5663 'plus/minus 10' Then

do something

endif

will i have to do something like.....

If \$MePos[0] <= 5668 And \$MePos[0] >= 5658 then

?

I believe this will do it for you, Switch...Case.

"If \$MePos[0] <= 5668 And \$MePos[0] >= 5658 then " will give 5663 plus or minus 5.

Use "If \$MePos[0] >= 5653 And \$MePos[0] <= 5673 then " to achieve 5663 plus or minus 10.

And using the convention of traveling from left to right along the number line, the lower number is on the left and the greater number is on the right when expanding to the limits of the plus or minus exercise.

If you have a great number of conditions based upon the plus or minus operation maybe you can make a function like this

```Func PlusOrMinus(\$number, \$test, \$range)
If (\$number >= (\$test - \$range)) And (\$number <= (\$test + \$range)) Then
Return True
Else
Return False
EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>PlusOrMinus

;Example call
If PlusOrMinus(60, 50, 10) Then
MsgBox(64, "Info", "60 is within 50 +/- 10")
EndIf```

for what i need it to do, i think smartee's idea works best.im calling it alot.

this is what i was working with

If \$Pos[0] <= \$XPlus And \$Pos[0] >= \$XMinus And \$Pos[1] <= \$YPlus And \$Pos[1] >= \$YMinus = true Then

i was hoping for some sort of symbol or built in function but thatll do.

thx.

This is another way:

```\$value = 1234
\$test = 1200
\$range = 20

If Abs(\$value-\$test) > \$range Then
MsgBox(0, '', \$value & " is not between " & \$test-\$range & " and " & \$test+\$range & " (incl.)")
EndIf```
