Error - User input GUI not recording proper values

Recommended Posts

QuantumC

Hello,

 

I am running this code below.  I am attempting to validate data from a website to an excel sheet that I have.  I just want the user to enter the row, column and number of items which must be checked.  When these values are entered I get the values "4", "6", & "8" returned no matter what is typed in the first GUI box.   

 

Any suggestions, I am a bit over my head here.

 

Cheers,

 

 

 

/code

 Popup Message Box to start the script

$Erow = 0

$Column = 0

$For_n = 0

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <EditConstants.au3>

$MAIN = GUICreate("AutoIt Input Variables", 300, 160)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Excel Row:", 10, 15, 100, 25)

$Erow = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 120, 10, 160, 25, $ES_NUMBER)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Excel Column:", 10, 55, 100, 25)

$EColumn = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 120, 50, 160, 25, $ES_NUMBER)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("For Loop #:", 10, 95, 100, 25)

$For_n = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 120, 90, 160, 25, $ES_NUMBER)

$OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 60, 125, 60, 25)

$CANCEL = GUICtrlCreateButton("CANCEL", 180, 125, 60, 25)

GUISetState()

$msg = 0

While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

    $msg = GUIGetMsg()

    Select

 Case $msg = $OK

           MsgBox(64, 'Variables' , ' The values entered are:' & @CRLF & '     Excel Row: is:  ' & $Erow  & @CRLF & '     Excel Column: is:  ' & $EColumn  & @CRLF  & '     For Loop Length is:  ' & $For_n )

   ExitLoop

   Case $msg = $CANCEL

   MsgBox(1, 'Script Shutdown' , 'You have Selected Cancel — Script is in shutdown process.')

   ExitLoop

    EndSelect

WEnd

Use GUICtrlRead to get the contents of the control. The variables you're using only hold the control id of the control, not its contents.


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.

Thanks, BrewMan

I am only experienced with Matlab, so asking Autoit to grab the actual number not the identifer did not occur to myself.

Common mistake when first staying out. :)
