adding 2 variables into 1 variable

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me add two variables together, I am relatively new to autoit so I am sorry in advance for a lack of information.

$Call1+$Click1 = $EndValue1

I do this and I get an error message saying that a "=" is expected instead.

Just know that in programming, when you want to set a value to something it is 

Hello = X + X

The "=" can be refered to EQUAL TO most of the time.

The "=" can be refered to EQUAL TO most of the time.

The "=" can be refered to ASSIGN TO most of the time.
Refered to 'equal to' when used as a comparison operator (test in a condition)

I think it depends on the type of variables. For integers as others have already suggested:

$EndValue1 = $Investment1+$Profit1

But for string variables you should use the following:

$EndValue1 = $Investment1 & $Profit1

Factfinder, your second example isn't adding the two together, it's concatenating them into one longer string. Not the same thing.


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.

BrewManNH, you are right about the semantic precision. I wasn't sure about the type of variables the OP is talking abut and if "adding" was used instead of concatenating two string variables. I think in C++ both adding (like in case of integer variables) and concatenating is done the same way:

$totalvar=$var1+$va2

I just wanted to mention the difference in Autoit.

sumandevadiga,

Declare the variables outside the loop:

Local $hWnd = WinGetHandle($TiTle, '')
Local $ponum, $ponum1 = "Whatever you want"
For $i = 1 to 97
    Local $po1 = StringStripWS(ControlGetText($hWnd, '', "TEIEdit" & $i),8) ;getting the file number    
    If $po1 = "P/O" Then            
        $ponum = StringStripWS(ControlGetText($hWnd, '', "TEIEdit" & $i+1),8) ;getting the file number        
        $ponum1 = $ponum & $ponum1        
        MsgBox(0, "Result", @error & " - " & $ponum1)
    EndIf   
Next

      Hello friends, I have a simple question, can I have a variable that is not reset, even if my program is closed?
      That is, I want to make a program that can only be opened once, have a variable $ ini = 0, when it is opened for the first and only time it becomes $ ini = 1, so that it can not use the program a second time, as if it was a test software.
      I do not want the variable to depend on a reading of an external file that is easily manipulated. Thank you.

      My program has to first search for names in Column D that do not match up with column C. I got that search to work using arrays. It was slow and I could not figure out how to delete them so I just manually put coded the names that do not belong. I found their cell location but I do not know how to store that location and delete it.
      This is what I have so far.
      Local $NameToDelete1[6]  = _Excel_RangeFind($OpenWorkbook, "Smith, Bill") _ArrayDisplay($NameToDelete1, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment") _Excel_RangeDelete($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $NameToDelete1[2], $xlShiftUp)  
      Please help, I wanted to have this program done yesterday but I did not see this problem until yesterday.

      So Im trying to make a simple 2d game and make some sort of collision detection so why not to make a 2 dimensional array but i have no clue how  to write it in multiple lines
      Global $map[5,5] = [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0] something like this but it doesn't work

      #include "..\Include\Array.au3" #include "..\Include\File.au3" #include "..\Include\AutoItConstants.au3" Local $aRetArray Local $sFilePath = "n.csv" _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, ",") ; _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, $FRTA_COUNT, ",") _ArrayDisplay($aRetArray, "Original", Default, 8) The above code shows two versions of _FileReadToArray and both don't work as expected.
      The first one doesn't use the comma as a delimiter. (so I get a single column array)  I tried adding "Default" between $aRetArray and "," then it told me it had an incorrect number of parameters. 

      I looked again at the documentation:
       
      #include <File.au3> _FileReadToArray ( $sFilePath, ByRef $vReturn [, $iFlags = $FRTA_COUNT [, $sDelimiter = ""]] )
      And I with or without the flags params I should be getting a 2D array due to my file being a csv. 
      I then tried a regular flag, $FRTA_COUNT, and it tells me that I'm using a variable $FRTA_COUNT while it's not declared. Tried putting in 1 instead and it told me again, incorrect number of params.

      I need to perform a subtotal in excel and I would like to automate this process using Autoit if possible like always any and all help will be greatly appreciated. 
      I can not find a good example but the two from Microsoft. Here is one of the two from msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vba/excel-vba/articles/range-subtotal-method-excel
      I do not really understand how to translate this into AutoIt, but I gave it a try and here is what I have.
      $OpenRange      = "A1:E200" $xlSum          = -4157 $Added_Array[2] = [2, 3] $OpenRange.Subtotal("B1", $xlSum, $Added_Array, True, False, True) I just need to perform a subtotal on a range based on a header called department, and then perform a sum on the results.
