Sending $Variable

8 posts in this topic

The problem I am having is that when any of the variables $a, b, or c get >= 10, the script starts printing only the first digit. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. NOTE: I'm sure this is probably written horribly, I'm quite new to AutoIt and only know one other language (C++).

For $a=1 To 28
        Send("+i")
        Sleep(750)
        Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
        Sleep(750)
        Send("{" & $a & "}")
        Sleep(750)
        Send("{ENTER}")
        Sleep(750)
        For $b=1 To 20
            If $b>=2 Then
                Send("+i")
                Sleep(750)
                Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
                Sleep(750)
                Send("{" & $a & "}")
                Sleep(750)
                Send("{ENTER}")
                Sleep(750)
            EndIf
            Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
            Sleep(750)
            Send("{" & $b & "}")
            Sleep(750)
            Send("{ENTER}")
            Sleep(750)
            For $c=1 To 20
                if $c>=2 Then
                    Send("+i")
                    Sleep(750)
                    Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
                    Sleep(750)
                    Send("{" & $a & "}")
                    Sleep(750)
                    Send("{ENTER}")
                    Sleep(750)
                    Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
                    Sleep(750)
                    Send("{" & $b & "}")
                    Sleep(750)
                    Send("{ENTER}")
                    Sleep(750)
                EndIf
                Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
                Sleep(750)
                Send("{" & $c & "}")
                Sleep(750)
                Send("{ENTER}")
                Sleep(750)
                Send("{TAB}{TAB}{ENTER}")
                Sleep(750)
            Next

I have no problem running this code - so maybe the fields you are entering the digits into, only excepts one char?

For $a=1 To 28
        ;Send("+i")
        ;Sleep(750)
        ;Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
        ;Sleep(750)
        ConsoleWrite("{" & $a & "}" & @CRLF)
        ;Sleep(750)
        ;Send("{ENTER}")
        ;Sleep(750)
        For $b=1 To 20
            If $b>=2 Then
                ;Send("+i")
                ;Sleep(750)
                ;Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
                ;Sleep(750)
                ConsoleWrite("{" & $a & "}" & @CRLF)
                ;Sleep(750)
                ;Send("{ENTER}")
                ;Sleep(750)
            EndIf
            ;Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
            ;Sleep(750)
            ConsoleWrite("{" & $b & "}" & @CRLF)
            ;Sleep(750)
            ;Send("{ENTER}")
            ;Sleep(750)
            For $c=1 To 20
                if $c>=2 Then
                    ;Send("+i")
                    ;Sleep(750)
                    ;Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
                    ;Sleep(750)
                    ConsoleWrite("{" & $a & "}" & @CRLF)
                    ;Sleep(750)
                    ;Send("{ENTER}")
                    ;Sleep(750)
                    ;Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
                    ;Sleep(750)
                    ConsoleWrite("{" & $b & "}" & @CRLF)
                    ;Sleep(750)
                    ;Send("{ENTER}")
                    ;Sleep(750)
                EndIf
                ;Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
                ;Sleep(750)
                ConsoleWrite("{" & $c & "}" & @CRLF)
                ;Sleep(750)
                ;Send("{ENTER}")
                ;Sleep(750)
                ;Send("{TAB}{TAB}{ENTER}")
                ;Sleep(750)
            Next
        Next
    Next

It definitely excepts more than one character :/

Maybe try it with ControlSend() and see if it works

Other than the test I did, I am not sure I can give you anymore INPUT - sorry. Maybe, the application\form\whatever does not allow automation? I will have to leave it to the 'experts' to try ane figure it out, but your code looks like it should work.

Try this. You were using send incorrectly. There are no keys labeled 10 to 28, at least not on my keyboard.

For $a=1 To 28
        Send("+i")
        Sleep(750)
        Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
        Sleep(750)
        Send($a)
        Sleep(750)
        Send("{ENTER}")
        Sleep(750)
        For $b=1 To 20
            If $b>=2 Then
                Send("+i")
                Sleep(750)
                Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
                Sleep(750)
                Send($a)
                Sleep(750)
                Send("{ENTER}")
                Sleep(750)
            EndIf
            Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
            Sleep(750)
            Send($b)
                        Sleep(750)
            Send("{ENTER}")
            Sleep(750)
            For $c=1 To 20
                if $c>=2 Then
                    Send("+i")
                    Sleep(750)
                    Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
                    Sleep(750)
                    Send($a)
                    Sleep(750)
                    Send("{ENTER}")
                    Sleep(750)
                    Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
                    Sleep(750)
                    Send($b)
                    Sleep(750)
                    Send("{ENTER}")
                    Sleep(750)
                EndIf
                Send("{ENTER}{DOWN}{ENTER}")
                Sleep(750)
                Send($c)
                Sleep(750)
                Send("{ENTER}")
                Sleep(750)
                Send("{TAB}{TAB}{ENTER}")
                Sleep(750)
            Next
        Next

That worked perfectly, thank you so much! It took me a while to figure out how to even send the variables from 1 to 9. I found the syntax particularly odd - probably because I was doing it wrong! I guess I overlooked the obvious in all my trial-and-error.
