Script loop set times.

Recommended Posts

Scriptmaster

Hey

I have posted before about looping scripts and exit loops but now it is something different.

Take into consideration I am a beginner so do not get angry if you think my ways are 'stupid'

OK I have a script where the user inputs some numbers

before (stupidly) I have tried

(FAILED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

$input = inputbox("input", "how many times to repeat?", "")
$set = "1"
while 1
$set = $set +1
if $set = $input then exitloop
else
  ;do stuff
endif
wend

this is an example

$number = inputbox("Beep", "how many times should it repeat?", "")
;repeat $number of times
       beep(500, 500)
wend

please if you could help.

Try this:

$number = inputbox("Beep", "how many times should it repeat?", "")
While $number ;repeat $number of times
    beep(500, 500)
    $number -= 1
wend

OR

$number = inputbox("Beep", "how many times should it repeat?", "")
For $I = 1 to  $number ;repeat $number of times
    beep(500, 500)
Next

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I have seen that used before but did not think it was that simple,

thought it would include

while $input to ;something

but great thanks

      Is there a way to loop back to the beginning and keep the already entered data in the GUI Input boxes? I can GUIDelete and start a new GUI but all the typed data has to be redone. Here is a sample.

       
      #Include <GuiConstants.au3> Dim $msg,$okbutton,$cancelbutton,$objOU,$intAccValue,$strGroup1,$strGroup2 Dim $strFirstName,$strLastName,$strUserName,$strUserName2,$strPassword,$strDescription,$strContainer Dim $Combo,$Duration Do $Form1 = GuiCreate("", 300, 300)          GUISetBkColor(0xA6CAF0)         GuiCtrlCreateLabel("First Name:", 50, 10)         $strFirstName = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 50, 25, 200, 20)         GUICtrlSetState ( $okbutton, $GUI_FOCUS )         GuiSetState()     $okbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton ("OK",75,240,50,20)     $cancelbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Cancel",175,240,50,20) While 1     $msg = GUIGetMsg()     Select     Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $msg = $cancelbutton             Exit     Case $msg = $okbutton             $strFirstName = GUICtrlRead($strFirstName)             ExitLoop     EndSelect Wend $len = StringLen($strFirstName)     If $len > "20" then         MsgBox(0, "ERROR Name to long", $strFirstName & " can't be over 20 characters." & @CRLF & "Total: " & $len)         ;Exit         GUIDelete($Form1)     EndIf Until $len < "20" MsgBox(0, "Done", "")

      Hi Guys,
      Is it possible to get a variable on your For..Next loop? 
       
      Local $Lines1 = _FileCountLines(C:\temp\test.txt) Local $linesToCount2 = $Lines1 + 2 $var = Number($linesToCount2) For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead2) Step 1 For $i = $var To $count Next ;Code does stuff here Next Somehow my code doesn't work even though I thought I could convert the variable to a Integer / Number.
      This code I posted above does not move to the next value.
      But the code below does... why is that?
      For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead2) Step 1 For $i = 2 To $count Next ;Code does stuff here Next  
      Why is the For loop resetting itself?
      Is it because the program does not cache the variable and needs to keep on acquiring this variable each time?
      If so , how would you make this variable static?
