check variable against several constants

Recommended Posts

AmbientMike

Hopefully this will be a really quick one but I can't figure it out...

I have several constants that I want to check the value of a variable against. Is there an easy way to do it in one shot or do I have to compare them all separately?

For example I'd like something like this to work (but obviously it doesn't)...

$var1 = "1"
$var2 = "2"
$var3 = "3"
$var4 = "4"
$var5 = "5"
$var6 = 0
If $var1 <> $var2 to $var5 Then $var6 = 1

rather than have it like...

$var1 = "1"
$var2 = "2"
$var3 = "3"
$var4 = "4"
$var5 = "5"
$var6 = 0
If $var1 <> $var2 Then $var6 = 1
If $var1 <> $var3 Then $var6 = 1
If $var1 <> $var4 Then $var6 = 1
If $var1 <> $var5 Then $var6 = 1

Is there some syntax change that might get this to work. I have a lot of constants to check against so this would be good.

Cheers.

You could use an array and do the comparison in a loop

Global $aVars[4] = ["2", "3", "4", "5"]
$var1 = "1"
$var6 = 0
For $i = 0 to UBound($aVars, 1) - 1
    If $aVars[$i] <> $var1 Then $var6 = 1
Next

If $var = any of the values, do nothing, or else $var6 = 1. Same concept just reversing the negatives.

Switch $var1
  Case $var2, $var3, $var4, $var5

  Case else
    $var6 = 1
EndSwitch

OR

If $var1 <> $var2 Or $var1 <> $var3 Or $var1 <> $var4 Or $var1 <> $var 5 Then $var6 = 1

I prefer neither however. Do it water's way =P

EDIT: Changed = to <> derp

“Hello, ladies, look at your man, now back to me, now back at your man, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped using ladies scented body wash and switched to Old Spice, he could smell like he’s me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on a boat with the man your man could smell like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love. Look again, the tickets are now diamonds. Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady. I’m on a horse.”

Another way...

Local $var1 = "1"
Local Const $var2 = "2"
Local Const $var3 = "3"
Local Const $var4 = "4"
Local Const $var5 = "5"
Local $var6 = 0

For $c = 2 To 5
   If $var1 <> Eval('var' & $c) Then $var6 = 1
Next
