Multiple ElseIf for setting variable

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I appears that this is not correct:

if $selectInstrument = "TGA-100" Then
        $textPos = 5
    ElseIf $selectInstrument = "TGA-200" Then
        $textPos = 3
    ElseIf $selectInstrument = "dummy" Then
        $textPos = 4
    ElseIf $selectInstrument = "AUTOCAT-100" Then
        $textPos = 7
    ElseIf $selectInstrument = "AUTOCAT-200" Then
        $textPos = 10
    EndIf

What is the correct form for this?

EDIT: Nevermind, I wasn't using GUICtrlRead($selectInstrument)

Usually with a bunch of if/else statements its better to work with Switch/Case instead.

This is just an example and here is the helppage: https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/keywords/Switch.htm

Switch $selectInstrument
Case "TGA-100"
$textPos = 5
Case "TGA-200"
$textPos = 3
Case "dummy"
$textPos = 4
EndSwitch

Your code is correct. A more readable alternative is:

Switch $selectInstrument
    Case "TGA-100"
        $textPos = 5
    Case "TGA-200"
        $textPos = 3
    Case "dummy"
        $textPos = 4
    Case "AUTOCAT-100"
        $textPos = 7
    Case "AUTOCAT-200"
        $textPos = 10
EndSwitch
