l270ucas Posted December 16, 2013 Share Posted December 16, 2013 Hello I am new to the programming field. What I am trying to make is just a simple little program that allows you to figure out the are of three different shapes. I think I have to many if statements and the program cannot compute them. Could someone please help me figure this out. Lets say i program it for the circle and run it and it works, but when i go to put in the second shape like a square it will not run properly. I also didnt know how to embed script here so i attached the file. Thanks for any help, lucas Areas of shapes defined.au3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Moderators Melba23 Posted December 16, 2013 Moderators Share Posted December 16, 2013 l270ucas,Welcome to the AutoIt forum. You need to put the various statements into a logical sequence so the computer knows in what order to run them. Here is a modified version of your script which shows how you might structure the code so that the logic flow is correct:Global $shape $shape = InputBox("Area", "Which shape would you like to know the equation for? Circle , Square , or Triangle ") If $shape = "Circle" Then $circle = MsgBox(4, "Area of a Circle", "Area of a circle is A=3.14*r^2. Would you like to find the area of a cirle?") If $circle = 6 Then $circleradius = InputBox("Area of a circle", "Enter the length of the radius.") $circlearea = ($circleradius * $circleradius) * 3.14 MsgBox(0, "Area of a circle", "The area of the circle is, " & $circlearea) EndIf EndIf If $shape = "Square" Then $square = MsgBox(4, "Area of a square", "The area a square is A=l*w or A=l^2. Would you like to find the area of a square?") ; You can do this part ;) EndIf If $square = 6 Then $squareside = InputBox("Area of a square", "Enter the length of one side,") ; And this part too :) EndIfPlease ask if anything is unclear.

l270ucas Posted December 17, 2013 Author Share Posted December 17, 2013 Ok thank you, now that I got that it works like i would like it to. however i was wondering if there was anyway i could make this simpler other that the obvious calculator? $shape = InputBox("Area", "Which shape would you like to know the equation for? Circle, Square, or Triangle") If $shape = "Circle" Then $circle = MsgBox(4, "Area of a Circle", "Area of a circle is A = 3.14*r^2. Would you like to find the area of a circle?") If $circle = 6 Then $circleradius = InputBox("Area of a Circle", "Enter the length of the radius.") $circlearea = ($circleradius *$circleradius) * 3.14 MsgBox(0, "Area of a circle", "The area of the circle is, " & $circlearea) EndIf EndIf If $shape = "Square" Then $square = MsgBox(4, "Area of a Square", "The area of a square is, A = b*h. Would you like to find the area of a square?") If $square = 6 Then $squarebase = InputBox("Area of a Square", "Enter the length of the base") $squareheight = InputBox("Area of a Square", "Enter the length of the height") $squarearea = $Squareheight *$squarebase MsgBox(0,"Area of a Square", "The area of the square is, " & $squarearea) EndIf EndIf If $shape = "Triangle" Then $triangle = MsgBox(4, "Area of a Triangle", "The area of a Triangle is, A = (1/2)*b*h. Would you like to find the area of a triangle?") If $triangle = 6 Then $trianglebase = InputBox("Area of a Triangle", "Enter the length of the base") $triangleheight = InputBox("Area of a triangle", "Enter the length of the height") $trianglearea = (1/2) * $trianglebase * $triangleheight MsgBox(0, "Area of a Triangle", "The area of the triangle is, " & $trianglearea) EndIf EndIf Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
