Hey guys

I am writing a program and it has lots and lots of checkboxes. I recently thought of having an option to save custom ini list so that it will auto check the boxes listed in the file. I could do this manually but i think it would take along time. My problem is i have created load sof checkboxes already. Some are listed $Checkbox1, $Checkbox2 etc..... upto around 50 ish and i plan on adding more. But i also have checkboxes named such as e.g $ZZSpybot

Ive tried the following as a test but it listed nothing

$file = FileOpen("c:\box.txt", 1)
dim $Checkbox[20]
For $i = 0 To UBound($Ceckbox[20]) - 1
                If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($Checkbox[$i]), $GUI_CHECKED) Then FileWriteLine($file, "BOX -      " & $Checkbox[$i] & @CRLF)

How can i have a button, that when clicked will write down each checkbox that is checked and put it sequentially into a file?

Thanks in advance

You have started along the right lines. :unsure:

Put the ControlIDs of your checkboxes into an array and then use a loop to go through them to see which are checked. But I would use an ini file to store the results - the syntax is easy for both writing and reading. ;)

Give it a go and see if you can do it yourself - you know where we are if you run into trouble. :>

For $i = 0 To UBound($Ceckbox[20]) - 1

I believe you accidentally left out the "h" in $Checkbox[20]
