problem with optional parameters in a function

Recommended Posts

kor

Func _DisableInput($n1, $n2, $n3, $n4)
    GUICtrlSetState($n1, $GUI_DISABLE)
    GUICtrlSetState($n2, $GUI_DISABLE)
    GUICtrlSetState($n3, $GUI_DISABLE)
    GUICtrlSetState($n4, $GUI_DISABLE)
EndFunc   ;==>_DisableInput

_DisableInput($aInput[0][0], $aInput[1][0], $aInput[2][0], $aInput[3][0])

The above works if I want to disable all 4 inputs. But if I only want to disable 3 and thus remove the $aInput[3][0] from the function call I get an error saying incorrect number of parameters.

Basically I want to be able to disable X number of inputs up to a maximum of 4.

To make a parameter optional you have to set a default value in the parameter list. In this case I used the keyword Default but it could be any other value like 0 or "".

Func _DisableInput($n1, $n2 = Default, $n3 = Default, $n4 = Default)
    GUICtrlSetState($n1, $GUI_DISABLE)
    If $n2 <> Default Then GUICtrlSetState($n2, $GUI_DISABLE)
    If $n3 <> Default Then GUICtrlSetState($n3, $GUI_DISABLE)
    If $n4 <> Default Then GUICtrlSetState($n4, $GUI_DISABLE)
EndFunc   ;==>_DisableInput

Like this, now only the first parameter is mandatory as why would you use this without using at least one parameter.

Func _DisableInput($n1, $n2 = -1, $n3 = -1, $n4 = -1)
    Local $aArray[5] = [4, $n1, $n2, $n3, $n4]
    For $i = 1 To $aArray[0]
        If $aArray[$i] = -1 Then
            ContinueLoop
        EndIf
        GUICtrlSetState($aArray[$i], $GUI_DISABLE)
    Next
EndFunc   ;==>_DisableInput

Plus I love using loops, because you can adapt this to 15 parameters without adding more lines.

kor,

Use arrays. Put all the ControlIDs into one array and then pass another array as a parameter to the function. tehn you can have as many as you want: :oops:

#include <guiconstantsex.au3>

Global $aInput[4], $aState[4]

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

For $i = 0 To 3
    $aInput[$i] = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10 + (30 * $i), 200, 20)
Next

$cButton_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Disable #3", 10, 200, 100, 30)
$cButton_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Disable #1 && #2", 10, 250, 100, 30)
$cButton_3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Disable #2 && #4", 10, 300, 100, 30)
$cButton_4 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Enable all", 10, 350, 100, 30)


GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cButton_1
            Global $aState [4] = [1, 1, 0, 1]
            _Set_Input_State()
        Case $cButton_2
            Global $aState [4] = [0, 0, 1, 1]
            _Set_Input_State()
        Case $cButton_3
            Global $aState [4] = [1, 0, 1, 0]
            _Set_Input_State()
        Case $cButton_4
            Global $aState [4] = [1, 1, 1, 1]
            _Set_Input_State()
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _Set_Input_State()

    For $i = 0 To UBound($aState) - 1
        If $aState[$i] = 1 Then
            GUICtrlSetState($aInput[$i], $GUI_ENABLE)
        Else
            GUICtrlSetState($aInput[$i], $GUI_DISABLE)
        EndIf
    Next

EndFunc
