order supplies - return checkbox into array then write array to console

4 posts in this topic

title pretty much says it. right now im writing to the console because i havent written the second part.

i want to associate the type array ($type) with the 2nd array ($quantity) and eventually print an invoice.

but for some reason its not writing to the console. im not getting an exit error.

this is my first GUI and im relying heavily on the help files. but as usual im stuck.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <array.au3>
Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)
mountingboard()
Func mountingboard()
    Local $36reg, $36gloss, $36matte, $msg, $type[5], $quantity[5], $next1
    GUICreate("Mounting board")  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
    $36matte = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("24x36 Matte", 10, 10, 120, 20)
$36gloss = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("24x36 Gloss", 10, 40, 120, 20)
    $36reg = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("24x36 Regular", 10, 70, 120, 20)
$next1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Next", 300, 375, 100)

    GUISetState()      ; will display a dialog box with 1 checkbox
    ; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
  select
  case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
   ExitLoop
  Case $msg = $next1
   For $s = 1 To $type[0]
   $type[0]=GUICtrlRead($36matte)
   $type[1]=guictrlread($36gloss)
   $type[2]=guictrlread($36reg)
    ConsoleWrite($type[$s])
   next
   msgbox (0, "this be a messagebox", "arrrrrrgh")
   ExitLoop
    endselect
    WEnd
EndFunc

What exactly is the code below supposed to be doing? The reason I ask is because whatever it is you think it's doing, it's doing something else.

Case $msg = $next1
    For $s = 1 To $type[0]
        $type[0] = GUICtrlRead($36matte)
        $type[1] = GUICtrlRead($36gloss)
        $type[2] = GUICtrlRead($36reg)
        ConsoleWrite($type[$s])
    Next

What it's doing is the following

1] Start the For loop at 1 to whatever is supposed to be in $type[0].

1a. Because there's nothing in $type[0] it skips the For loop entirely because $type[0] contains no number

2] Displays the MsgBox and then exits.

never mind, i just got rid of the loop and it worked.

While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
 
select
case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
  ExitLoop
Case $msg = $next1
  $type[0]=GUICtrlRead($36matte)
  $type[1]=guictrlread($36gloss)
  $type[2]=guictrlread($36reg)
   ConsoleWrite($type[0] & @lf)
   ConsoleWrite($type[1] & @lf)
   ConsoleWrite($type[2] & @lf)
  msgbox (0, "this be a messagebox", "arrrrrrgh")
  ExitLoop
    endselect
    WEnd
