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

      I am reading a file with last 5 lines as above. I want to be able to loop through and pick the values as follows
      1- Pick 1234567890123
      2- Use it to build a format with N1.1
      3- Pick 1234567890333
      2- Use it to build a format with N2.1
      Need help with the loop. Thank You

      For $A1 = 12 To 11 + $Total For $B1 = 1 To ($oExcel.Application.Cells($A1,6).Value) ; This value is from the Excel file. It can be from 1 - 9. For $N1 = 7 To ??? ; This is based on the value of $B1 ((1 = 7, 2 = 17, 3 = 27, 4 = 37, 5 = 47) Send("-"& ($oExcel.Application.Cells($A1,$N1).Value) &"/"& ($oExcel.Application.Cells($A1,$N1+1).Value)) Sleep(400) Send("{ENTER}") Sleep(700) Next Next Next I am not able to figure how to loop $N1 as follows
      If the Value of $B1 = 1 then $N1 = 7
      If the Value of $B1 = 2 then $N1 = 17
      If the Value of $B1 = 3 then $N1 = 27
      If the Value of $B1 = 4 then $N1 = 37  
      The value of $N1 comes from $B1 where 1 = 7, 2 = 17, 3 = 27, 4 = 37, 5 = 47)
      Thank You

      Hello! Thanks you for looking at my post
      **No source code I'm sorry work related can't copy information**
      I've been using autoit for about 1 year. 
      I'm having trouble automating a click on an internet explorer web page and I've tried a lot of examples from help pages and forums already. The object I'm trying to click on isnt always in the same spot so I can't use mouse click or control click, I have tried to use the different get collection options and clickbyname, or index or get object. I'm just struggling. 
      Description of object I'm trying to click -- 
      HTML Code looks like <a ng-click.. "Click Here" it appears it's just a click able object named "click here" that opens a hidden window by running a script inside the web page. I'm not able to grab the information from the window unless it's open so I have to automate this click somehow. 
       
      I understand it's difficult to assist without having something to look at, I apologize for that sincerely and appreciate and assistance and suggestions.

      Hi
      So I am trying to click the green button, this button is not always in the same place. So fare I am trying to click it by finding the color but there is also something else with the same color on the screen (circled in yellow) that is causing issues. Is there a way to use the Title and Class of the window (can't be just the window as there are more than one with the same name).
      How does AutoIt Info get this information?
