Linking Multiple Boxes to a previous ctrl

6 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm trying to create my first gui, and i'm searching a easy way to link multiple boxes (1,2,3,4,5,6) to a control (primary) that has 4 choice (a,b,c,d)

I've been already successful to link one box to 2 ctrl, but now that i need to link 6 boxes to only one ctrl, i'm searching for a clean code solution: what i have now is:

func changeboxes()
$statsw = GUICtrlRead($primary)
Switch $statsw
Case 'a'
GUICtrlSetData($1, '')
guictrlsetdata($2, '')
GUICtrlSetData($1, "test")
guictrlsetdata($2, "test")

etc etc, for 6 boxes and 4 cases....

Now... is there a good solution to keep the code clean?

I hope i've chosen the right words to make the problem clear ^^'

Thanks

What do you mean when you say "boxes"?


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.

Post the code you've tried so far, because I'm not 100% sure of what it is you're trying to accomplish and I don't want to have to come up with a solution that doesn't do what you want it to do.

There's a lot of code missing in your script, this doesn't even run, and I'm still not sure what it is you're trying to do with it. For one thing, you don't have any controls assigned to $1, $2, $3, etc.


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.
