Not really, as far as I know but workaround is to hold handles in array.

Local $aControls[5] = [$Com,$input1,$input2,$var,$var22]

For $i = 0 To 4
      GUICtrlSetState($aControls[$i], $GUI_HIDE)

you can also have all of them in a function with a switch/select and pass a state through all of the variables that you assign cases for. it will create a big chunk of code and for every element in your GUi you will need a Case for. i think its easier to do it the way you r doing it now. the problem with JohnOne's solution is that if you didnt want all 5 of those elements to change, you would have to do it a different way.

If you create the controls in order, the control IDs will be in that order, so you could theoretically loop through the control IDs using something like this.

For $I = $Com to $var22
    GUICtrlSetState($I, $GUI_HIDE)

But, it takes some tweaking to make sure that there are no other controls created between these controls to get this trick to work.

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.
