Hellooo, it had been a long time since i visited this lovely forum (i miss you guys :D)

i'm trying to put a hint for the 11 input-boxes but because i'm too lazy to write the code 11 times, i want tot use a for loop

what i'm doing wrong here ?

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 547, 512, 186, 124)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 31, 24, 489, 21)
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 31, 56, 489, 21)
$Input3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 31, 88, 489, 21)
$Input4 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 31, 120, 489, 21)
$Input5 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 31, 152, 489, 21)
$Input6 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 31, 184, 489, 21)
$Input7 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 31, 216, 489, 21)
$Input8 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 31, 248, 489, 21)
$Input9 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 31, 280, 489, 21)
$Input10 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 31, 312, 489, 21)
$Input11 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 31, 344, 489, 21)

For $i = 1 to 11

    GUICtrlSendMsg("Input" & $i , $EM_SETCUEBANNER, True, "F1")
Next

i'm sure i had seen something that can do what i need but cant remember how, any ideas ?

Try  Eval("Input" & $i)

... but it would be much cleaner to make an array to store the inputs ids - this also allows the creation of the 11 inputs in the For loop  ;)

Local $aInputs[11]
For $i = 0 to 10
    $aInputs[$i] = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 31, ($i*32)+24, 489, 21)
    GUICtrlSendMsg($aInputs[$i], $EM_SETCUEBANNER, True, "F1")
Next

Thank you mike "Eval" was all what i wanted

EDIT: it is not possible to create ctrls with eval right ?

Try to avoid Eval and Assign if you can, they shouldn't be used in this way, you should be using Arrays.


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.

Hmm I agree (already suggested in post #2) but ... there are none so deaf as those that will not hear   :)

Yes you did, but he seems hellbent on using it that I figured a friendly reminder wouldn't hurt him. :)

Sure... and hoping that a third advice will not be necessary to convince him   :D
