ALOT of checkboxes

Recommended Posts

JustSomeone

Hello,

Can someone give me advice for GUI checkboxes.

I have simple GUI with a ton of checkboxes on it ( total of 52, soon to be more).

How can i control most of them, without having to type tons of this

GUICtrlSetState($Checkboxxx, $GUI_CHECKED)
GUICtrlSetState($Checkboxxx, $GUI_SHOW)

Or 

GUICtrlRead($Checkbox37) = 4 Then
do stuff
repeat the procedure for next checkbox

.

I don't believe it is needed to post the entire code, since its plain gui with 52 checkboxes and 2 buttons on it ~

Logic behind this : if i uncheck checkbox 1 the gui need to uncheck and hide checkboxes from 2 to 30 or something, but if checkbox 1 is checked, and i click button 1 to do some stuff according to the checkboxes.

EDIT: I whant to be able to uncheck some checkboxes manually and do other things according to the checked / unchecked status of each checkbox

The coding of the program is not a problem, all i need is  any way to avoid typing walls of text with `almost` same lines.

Maybe some array? can gui controls be there?

JustSomeone,

Arrays would seem to be the way to go. You can store the checkbox controlIDs in an array and then very quickly loop through it to deal with a given range of them. :)

EDIT

Dear Melba23

I love you

:~

Func x32show()
    If GUICtrlRead($Checkbox[38]) = 4 Then
        For $n = UBound($Checkbox) = 1 to 33 step 1
            GUICtrlSetState($n, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
            GUICtrlSetState($n, $GUI_HIDE)
        Next
    Elseif GUICtrlRead($Checkbox[38]) = 1 Then
        For $n = UBound($Checkbox) = 1 to 33 step 1
            GUICtrlSetState($n, $GUI_CHECKED)
            GUICtrlSetState($n, $GUI_SHOW)
        Next

    EndIf
EndFunc

works like a charm

Use an enumerated list: Enum, to define the subscripts of the array...It will be easier to see what the "38" represents, since it's a variable...then you can use those for your loops as well, and if you happen to ever add in another checkbox between "1" and "33", you won't have to dig in and change your code...also, you would not have to update your hard coded "38" in the If statements.
