Global Function Name

5 posts in this topic

Hi people,

I have an input box at the start of my script that asks the user which function they want to use within the script. The global taken from this is $choice. Then later in the script I use the command below in the hope that it will call the function the user specified.

$choice()

However when I try to run my script it isn't calling a function at all and in the error mentions something about '='. I wondered if anyone knew where I was going wrong?

Thankyou for your help

Mark

I think call($choice) should work... i just read somthing about this sort of thing...

but i think what you need to use is call, look in the help file for specifics

autoit doesnt allow for variable in the function name when using the XXXX() syntax

I see what you're trying to do. Consider this alternate:

$choice = InputBox("Field Choice", "Enter the field which you want to populate, select from the following options: (DeliveryLeadTime, ReturnCode, WeekTerm, Royalty)", "",)

$input = InputBox("Input Choice", "Enter the value you want to input", "",)
Select
  Case $choice = "DeliveryLeadTime"
    WinActivate("Stern MARKP@EKP")
    Mouseclick("left", 258, 176, 1)
    Mouseclick("left", 282, 489, 1)
    Send($input)
    Send("{F8}")
  Case $choice = "ReturnCode"
    WinActivate("Stern MARKP@EKP")
    MouseClick("left", 258, 176, 1)
    MouseClick("left", 284, 522, 1)
    Send($input)
 ;Case... etc...
EndSelect
