auto increasing variable names

Recommended Posts



i am trying to make a script which will keep increasing variables <makes no sense at all..> so like

whenever i hit a button <my case number 1> i want it to make a new variable with a different name than the last one

so for example: i hit 1 variable "var1 = data"

i hit 1 variable "var2 = data"

and so on and on


i tried searching for solutions but the answers didn't help at all as they posted scripts which won't work the way they are supposed to. <they say use assign and then it says var not declared while it's the 1st thing happening>


what i got now: 

$pos1 = 1
dim $array[20]
;somethinghere to fill the array
while 1
    $getal = $array[$pos1]
    send ($getal) ; it's supposed to send the value of $getal yet it gives me not declared error.
Func zetpositie()
    $pos1 = $pos1 + 1


func exit1()

please tell me what i am doing wrong and tell me how i can fix this =)

This works fine for me:

HotKeySet("1", "zetpositie")
HotKeySet("{esc}", "exit1")

Global $pos1 = 1
Global $array[20]
For $i = 0 To 19
    $array[$i] = "Element " & $i

While 1
    $getal = $array[$pos1]
    ConsoleWrite($getal & @CRLF)
    Sleep(100) ; Gve the CPU a chance to breathe

Func zetpositie()
    $pos1 = $pos1 + 1
    If $pos1 = 20 Then $pos1 = 0 ; Errorcheck
EndFunc   ;==>zetpositie

Func exit1()
EndFunc   ;==>exit1
I recommend you use Tidy on your code to get the indenting correct as in teh example I posted - it makes it much easier to spot any unclosed blocks (and makes it easier to scan the code as well). ;)
