You are very kind to have spent this much time helping me and explaining the steps to your GENIUS...it is going to take me some time to peruse through this and match it to the code. I hope to gain a better understanding of this, so that I may help myself and maybe later 'play it forward'

I will be back tomorrow...to really take this apart. Again, I thank your for your help and really for your time.

Okay...I have updated your comments into my (our) script. Disregard the checkboxes, as I am still working that out, but can you take a look at what I added to the array, and to the combo update, as for chores that can be performed more than one in a week, I added that ability (1,3,7) days. Can you take a peek at my code, and see if it can be reduced, as I tried many different approaches to figure out how to get info, but I was/am at a loss.

Here is the updated code...

#cs
    You wanted to have 1,2,4 week intervals which forces us to store the required interval, so why not in the same array as the chores themselves?
    Using this same array to store the chores already selected in each week is therefore a sensible choice as it keeps everything together.

    The next step follows on from something I learnt a long time ago and which I pass on with pleasure.
    When faced with a long repetitive task (such as which combos need changing) humans tend to look for the changes so as to minimize
    the number of times things need to be done.  However, computers are usually faster running the whole list of tasks as that means there
    are fewer conditional statements to run for each item - and they are usually so fast that humans do not notice the passage of time required in any event.
    So when a combo is actioned we do not look at that particular combo, we just read the whole set and recalculate and reset the combo contents for the entire GUI.
    It seems illogical, but believe me it is usually by far the best and fastest way to go about things.

    The chore removal logic is the same as I developed for your first query
    - just expanded to cater for the fact that we have 4 separate lists for the 4 weeks.
    As I have mentioned previously, choosing the right data structure and loop elements initially makes subsequent coding easier
    - this is I am afraid mostly (painfully gained) experience and there is no magic formula.
    But I would stress that it often pays to go back and completely restructure your initial data storage and
    various loop parameters if by so doing you can make the intensive parts of the script easier to code
    - the time spent is well worth it in terms of clarity of code and speed of execution.

nitekram,

Can you please explain what you want a little more clearly as I am unsure what the "day" intervals mean. As I read them, most of the chore requirements cannot be satisfied:

Kitchen:          1 [every week]     7 [7 day interval] ; This I understand if we decide it will always happen on the same day
Master Bed Room:  1 [every week]     3 [3 day interval] ; But how can there be a 3 day interval if the chore only happens once a week?
Front Bed Room:   2 [every 2 weeks]  1 [1 day interval] ; Again how can these 2 requirements be satisfied?
Back Bed Room:    2 [every 2 weeks]  1 [1 day interval] ; Same question
Bathroom Full:    1 [every week]     1 [1 day interval] ; And again

Would you prefer to go with just the day intervals? If that was the sole criterion we could simply remove the chosen chore from the lists of the following X days.

My idea was to make certain chores to have to be performed every week as well as more than once per week. I am not saying I am going to clean the kitchen 7 days a week, as I would be hard pressed to clean it once a week lol. But my idea was that this could be used for more than just chores (and therefore may want to do every week and more than once per week) ...as a way of a structure of your time (we all need structure lol). It could be: a work out schedule, monthly menu, task list, chore list...what have you.

Maybe my wording is off on the parameter for the array, rather than interval, I should have used TimesPerWeek

 

I do have some questions about getting the right algorithm for both, my changes, as well as reading the check boxes. I will be getting to the check boxes later (after a little clean up of the code I am testing), but looking at my most resent code (post), trying to think differently than my self and more like you, what do you see as wrong or something that makes it clearer, faster, or better?

 

EDIT
As for the times per week, I believe that is working correctly...my idea was before it gets to far out of my head, what changes could be made that would make it better, as I spent quite a lot of time, trying to get it to work.

nitekram,

After a period of reflection (and head-scratching) I am afraid that I am not able to offer any sensible comments on the code you posted for the following reasons:

 - 1. Your additional code within the script is completely uncommented.  If you want people to try and fathom out a better way to do what you are doing, the least you can do is explain what the code is currently intended to do.

- 2. There is a massive amount of "checkbox" code which you tell me is not yet working as you want. And I am supposed to work out what is going on around all that?

- 3. You appear to have decided to completely change the requirements of the script to depend on a fixed interval between events rather than merely happening once in a 1/2/4 week period, which has rendered the underlying algorithm I had developed completely useless.

If you wish, I am prepared to think about how to develop a new algorithm to work with a fixed interval between events (although I am struggling to see how to do it at the moment) but, as I said above, for the reasons stated I feel I cannot offer any comments on your current code. 

Sorry if this appears harsh, but I have many other demands on my time and trying to massage an unsuited algorithm to match a new requirement is a sure way to waste what time I am prepared to offer.

I am sorry for posting the code the way it was...I was excited to see how to change my code, to sort of match your example. I have removed, much of the comments (bloated), and removed the combo boxes, as I am still working on that part.

So what I have attempted to do, is take you existing example and add to it - though I am not sure it was the best way, or the only way. I did this more or less to learn from your code, and to allow the script to be more than just a chore keeper - based on pulling in a different, but same type of array, with other items.

The chore array, includes the name, the first parameter for how many times a month (every week, every other week, once a month), then there are 4 indexes for keeping track of entries for those. I added another parameter (index 6) that will allow the chore to show up more than once per week. The parameters are, 1 time a week, 3 times a week, and 7 times a week (though I may change that to 5 days, as you will never see the chore disappear otherwise). I then have an index for each of the day of the week Sun-Sat

All the chores right now, except the first two, Kitchen & Master Bed Room, are all set to only happen once each week. But a chore or a task, could happen every week and more than once per week - at least that was my thinking (after using your example)

The code works as you created it. The part I added, would be how many times a week is it performed. I am not used to dummy controls and linking them up to an array, is where I am lost. Within an array, I could have the control id, along with other data, but I am really interested in learning about both dummy controls and the all powerful 'Algorithm' - as I believe this will get me to the next step in programming.

The code as it sits works...I am only looking for direction on how it could be done better or faster, or if I made it too difficult to read - I would say the last one is TRUE, because of your last post - again sorry.

So without further ado:

nitekram,

No need to apologise - I was just explaining why I felt I could not offer much help.  Not that easy when you cannot understand what is going on!

I return to my earlier comment about revisiting data storage if it has become difficult to code with it in its current form. I have done just that and managed to keep exactly the same algorithm as before while allowing the selection of chores more than once a week.  If you look at the array below you will see that there is a new column "Times weekly if weekly" which sets the maximum times that chore can be selected in the week. Doing this allows us to maintain the existing "every 2/4 weeks" selections with no code changes - only the "by week" chores need slightly amended code to check if the chore has already been selected the required number of times. And in fact this code is not very different at all - only 1 line has been changed (if you ignore comments and some minor reorganisation).  Not a bad result, even if I say it myself.

I also wondered if you wanted to prevent the same chore being selected more than once a day, so I have rewritten the "; Now fill combos" section to do this. The combo filling is now done in daily, rather then weekly, blocks. In addition to those chores removed on a weekly basis, the combos in each day block also have the chores already selected that day removed from their lists so that they cannot be selected again. If you do not wish this added functionality, then just replace that section by the code in the script I originally posted.

So after all that explanation, here is the script (there are one or two other small additions, but I will let you play "spot the difference" to find them):

Again, please ask if you have any questions on what I have done or why I have done it - and certainly tell me if the code does not do what you want.

Are you looking to save and reload the data at any time? Or to populate the basic chore array with the required chores and their required interval? That would be a fun little project.

First...I need to know how long it took you to change your code, as it appears from what I see - you planned on it, meaning that your new change looks like it was planned from the beginning, how the += was already there for counting the weeks.

This sort of reminds me of when I learned to play chess...I would play over the great games, and wonder why they made the move they did, only to find out why, 7 to 10 moves later. I am not going to give up...I am going to get this someday. In the mean time, I am glad that there are people like you and others here, that will show novice coders what it is like to really program.

I am sure I will be back soon, as I am still trying to figure out the check boxes, but maybe after reviewing your changes, I will be able to figure out the algorithm.

Thanks again...

nitekram,

It was entirely fortuitous that the data structure I coded for the earlier algorithm lent itself to managing the new "several times a week" change. I was very pleased when I realised how easy it would be to modify the code - and I was also very aware of how lucky I was to have created the data structure in that way originally. So please do not go away thinking that I am some kind of prescient genius - I assure you that it was pure chance.

That is freaking cool as $hit...I cannot wait to take a look at this. I am almost off work, and I have my son this weekend, so will not get to it until next week. BUT I am really looking forward to looking at your code, so I may just stay up and play with it.

Okay...sorry it took a while, but I had looked at it last weekend, but did not quite finish. I think it works now. I only made a few changes...the create new chore list, had to have a few more indexes. I added the ability to save after accepting changes to the list. And added the save question before exit.

I have some more ideas...about how to establish a set of goals for each list item. For instance, I had an idea for a start/stop timer for the task, and a new best time record, say for cleaning the kitchen - when a new best time is made, a prize or reward. So I guess, now I will have a list of rewards (not sure if the reward should be random, or choose, or per chore). Another idea might be for the task to be completed, if completed for the amount of times (Times per month, and times per week) then reward is given.

Anything you can think of that might make it better?

      I'm working on a script that needs to work with a huge database inside a combobox.
      I'm looking for the best way to link a multidimensional array to that data to load that data on to textfields.

      example:
      combo item 0 = "A", data = [index linked to combo item 0] [1,0,5,4,87,9,"xyz"]
      combo item 1 = "B", data = [index linked to combo item 1] [1,6,5,4,87,9,"zzz"]
      combo item 3 = "A", data = [index linked to combo item 3] [1,6,4,4,87,9,"aaa"] ; yes also double items!
      Would also like to be able to delete and add items on the fly btw..
      Local $INDEX[0][10] ; ubound wil be resized like a stack while loading from a textfile ;inside gui: local $Combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo('...', 10, 10, 290, 25) ;gui loop: While True Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $Combo display() ; how do i link my array index to the combo labels to know what to show in the textfields? ; NOTE: (there are duplicate items in the combobox!) EndSwitch WEnd Any toughs are welcome.
      I was thinking about using _GUICtrlComboBox_GetCurSel($Combo) and use that integer to refer to the index (dimension 1) of the array 
      Thanks, TheAutomator

      Hello Forum, 
      I have one special Combo-box [with BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO, $CBS_SIMPLE) ] and if I press one button I want to change the Combo-box's background color, and after I press Button B I want to change it to the basic settings and it not works.
      I wanna do this with one combo-box.
      I have already tried several methods and I tried  GUICtrlComboSetColors that I have found on this forum.
      (But this methods works perfectly with Cobo boxes that don't have BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO, $CBS_SIMPLE). 
      Here is the example code
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <ComboConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= ;$CBS_DROPDOWNLIST ;$GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 504, 249, 252, 227) $Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 136, 24, 193, 25,BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO, $CBS_SIMPLE)) ; I want to change this special combo's background color if I press button 1 $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 112, 96, 75, 25) $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button2", 264, 96, 75, 25) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### GUICtrlSetData($Combo1," " & "|" & "apple" & "|" & "banana" & "|" & "cherry" ," ") While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $Button1 GUICtrlSetBkColor($Combo1,0x0078D7) Case $Button2 ;Makes the original bc color GUICtrlSetBkColor($Combo1,0xFFFFFF) EndSwitch WEnd

      for that i need when the user send a inter above any listBox item the list send a double click notification.
      i know some of you tell me that i can use the  GUISetAccelerators function

      Hi
      so i ran into a Problem i didn't expect to get stuck on.
      It sounds simple (and probably is) but i can't seem to get it to work
      So i created a Combobox and filled it with some things from an array which worked fine.
      $combobox = GUICtrlCreateCombo($list[0], 160, 200, 265, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL)) GuiCtrlSetData($list, "|" & _ArrayToString($list,Default,1),$list[2]) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 9, 400, 0, "Arial") Now i want to change the style of the combobox from $CBS_DROPDOWN to $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST via a checkbox.
      $Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox1", 160, 96, 105, 25) Case $Checkbox1 If GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1) = $GUI_CHECKED Then Call ("Read_only") Else Call ("Edit") Endif Func Read_only() GUICtrlSetStyle ($Combobox1,something to change it to $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST) EndFunc Func Edit() GUICtrlSetStyle ($Combobox1,something to change it to $CBS_DROPDOW) EndFunc I tried using $CBS_DROPDOWN and $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST but it simply does nothing.
      I also tried $ES_READONLY which kinda worked, it changed the combobox so i couldn't change the input via dropdown anymore but i could still type in it via keyboard (which i dont want).
      It's essential that its Editable but once the checkbox is checked the combobox becomes readonly so you can't type in it anymore but you can still choose between the items in the list. (It does not have to save your current input if you write something in it and then check the Checkbox it would be best if it would simpy jump back to the first item in the list)
      Im sure this is a simple thing but after long google search im tired of my stupidity can someone give me a push in the right direction?
