checkbox and if statements

Recommended Posts

Don't know if this makes any sense, but my goal is to check each checkbox and if it's checked then do the following action. Though when I do the if statement, it doesn't write to file on all of them. I'm sure I might mis-used the if statements. Any help is appreciated

 

    if GUICtrlRead($cb1) = $gui_checked Then
    ;code below
        $sReplcb1 = stringregexpreplace($sFile , "(?s)(?<=//\[offstart\])" , "" & "Not available")
        filewrite(FileOpen($dummies, $FO_READ + $FO_OVERWRITE), $sReplcb1)
Elseif GUICtrlRead($cb1) = $gui_checked Then
    ;code below
        $sReplcb1 = stringregexpreplace($sFile , "(?s)(?<=//\[offstart\])" , "" & "Not available")
        filewrite(FileOpen($dummies, $FO_READ + $FO_OVERWRITE), $sReplcb1)
Else
exit
endif

If I check both boxes, only one codes will be written to file. Shouldn't it check the first if then to the second if because I'm using the elseif?

An If statement only actions one comparison, whichever one it finds that matches the test first is actioned, so you can not expect it to do more comparisons after it has found a match.

You should use an And operator to test for all possibilities if you want it to check more than one checkbox at a time.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Try this way:

$bCB1=GUICtrlRead($cb1)
$bCB2=GUICtrlRead($cb2)
If $bCB1 = $gui_checked Then
    ;code below
    $sReplcb1 = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "(?s)(?<=//\[offstart\])", "" & "Not available")
    FileWrite(FileOpen($dummies, $FO_READ + $FO_OVERWRITE), $sReplcb1)
EndIf
If $bCB2 = $gui_checked Then
    ;code below
    $sReplcb1 = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "(?s)(?<=//\[offstart\])", "" & "Not available")
    FileWrite(FileOpen($dummies, $FO_READ + $FO_OVERWRITE), $sReplcb1)
EndIf
if Not $bCB1 And Not $bCB2 Then Exit

how would i apply the and with if statement. I don't see how that would operate if i'm trying to compare more than 2 if in the future i want to add more.

 

 

edit: i think i have an idea. Instead, of looking for checked, why don't i look for not checked...
