adding 2 variables into 1 variable

Recommended Posts

Estimize

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.

The result variable needs to be on the left side of the equal sign.

$EndValue1 = $Investment1+$Profit1

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

      Hey there!
       
      Is there a way to detect movement only for 1 specific window?

      HWnd is not really working, it still detects movement in all the windows within the region

      This is my script:
       
      ;Checksum actual HotKeySet("{f2}", 'exit_') MsgBox(0, '', '0') Beep(500, 2000) $Hwnd = WinActive('') while 1 $Checksum = PixelChecksum(211, 650, 1094, 914, 1, $Hwnd) If PixelChecksum(211, 650, 1094, 914, 1, $Hwnd) <> $Checksum Then For $i = 1 To 100 Beep(1000, 50) Next MsgBox(0, '', 'New message!', 1) EndIf WEnd Func exit_() Beep(500, 1000) Exit 0 EndFunc I just want to check whenever a message comes because the app i use doesn't give notifications properly.

      Any help is really appreciated!

      Can you please see whats wrong im doing in the below code? i can read few registry entry but not all for eg, i am able to get value of "Shell" Key from the registry path  but not AutoAdminLogon which has the value of "1", is there any change i have to do to read numeric values?
       Global  $shello = RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon","Shell" )
       ConsoleWrite("This is Hello"& $shello)
      above command returns proper value , but same command with AutoAdminLogon returns null as shown in below ? infact registry has the value of 1.
       Global  $shello = RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon","AutoAdminLogon" )
       ConsoleWrite("This is Hello"& $shello)

      Hello,
      I've been searching on how to select the first row in my database which includes a time column based on the latest start_time date for today's date.
      This is my current code:
      Local $iCurrentDate = _Now() Local $sqlHandle = _dbOpen($sDbPath) Local $aResult, $iRows, $iCols _SQLite_GetTable2d($sqlHandle, "SELECT start_time FROM " & $srawDb & " ORDER BY datetime(start_time) DESC LIMIT 1", $aResult, $iRows, $iCols) _ArrayDisplay($aResult) _dbClose($sDbpath) What it does is it gets the first row entry in the database however it does not select the latest start_time entry in the database, it always select the first row. I've tried changing DESC to ASC to see if that will do it but the issue still remains. Any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance.
       
      *EDIT
      The date format in the database is by MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS.
