Radio and Checkbox Validation

Recommended Posts

Let me first start by saying I'm new to all of this, and not a very good programmer...

I have some radios and checkboxes created.

$Group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("", 24, 100, 450, 73)
$rdoVA = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Van Automation Laptop", 41, 113, 137, 17)
$rdoBD = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Branch Desktop", 201, 113, 105, 17)
$rdoBL = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Branch Laptop", 361, 113, 97, 17)
$rdoHQL = GUICtrlCreateRadio("HQ Laptop", 281, 137, 89, 17)
$rdoHQD = GUICtrlCreateRadio("HQ Desktop", 121, 137, 89, 17)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)

$Group2 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("", 24, 210, 450, 73)
$chk1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Flash", 53, 225, 81, 17)
$chk2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Shockwave", 53, 249, 113, 17)
$chk3 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Internet Allowed Sites List", 285, 225, 153, 17)
$chk4 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Java", 285, 249, 41, 17)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)

Is there an easy way to make sure at least something is checked and selected in each group??? Using a bunch of IF statements seems a little archaic, I know I am just approaching this wrong. Can someone point me in the right direction, thanks.

Put the returned ControlIDs in each group into an array and then loop through it to check if one of them is checked. :)
