Msgbox loop question

5 posts in this topic

I'm so mad I can't figure this out!

I've been looking over the fourm archives for ever and it could be that it is so simple no one talks about it.

Here is what I need:

$num = InputBox("Number", "What is the number? ", "", "")

if $num = "" Then Exit

WinActivate("window")

Send($012num)

$msg = MsgBox(36, "correct?", "Was the number input correctly")

If = $msg = 7 Then

:::loops back to the input box until:::

Else $msg = 6 Then

;;;;;The rest of the script keeps going;;;;

Is this possible to do?

Thanks

Sigh

Nemon,

Put the whole thing in an infinite loop - if the number is correct then use ExitLoop to break out. ;)

Try it in a loop:

Global $msg = 0
While $msg <> 6
    $msg = MsgBox(36, "correct?", "Was the number input correctly")
WEnd
;;;;;The rest of the script keeps going;;;;

damn I'm dumb!

Thanks to both of you. I used the endless loop like melba said. I felt like I was close but I just couldn't get it to jive.

Thanks again for the help and fast response!

Here's how I'd do it.

Do

    $num = InputBox("Number", "What is the number? ", "", "")
    If $num = "" Then Exit
    WinActivate("window")
    Send($012num)

Until MsgBox(36, "correct?", "Was the number input correctly") = 6
