Using Assigned Variables

Recommended Posts

WannaBeGut

Hello!

I havent found any solution for my problem in the Internet or on the Forum, excuse me If i overlooked something.

For $i = 1 To 5
  Assign("oGoogle"&$i, _IECreate("google.com" 0, 1, 0, 0))
  $GoogleVar = $oGoogle&$i
  Assign("oSearchInput"&$i, _IEGetObjById($GoogleVar, "lst-ib"))
Next

What I'am trying to do is open Google.com 5 times with _IECreate and assign it to the Variables "$oGoogle1, $oGoogle2,...", but I have to use these Variables again, because I want to assign the Searchinputs from every $oGoogle to another Variable ($oSearchInput1, $oSearchInput2,...). But if i try to use this code, Autoit tells me that $oGoogle is not declared!

I hope someone is willing to help me! :) (Excuse my Grammar :sweating:)

You probably need this:

$GoogleVar = Eval($oGoogle&$i)

Jos

$GoogleVar = Eval($oGoogle&$i)
$GoogleVar = Eval(^ ERROR ==> Variable used without being declared.:

oops ,that obviously should be:

$GoogleVar = Eval("oGoogle" & $i)

I don't know why I hate Assign+eval. (and don't understand why autoit create/use/implement/keep etc.)

Learning to program is also taking a step at a time. Arrays will come when the OP in really interested as a (better) alternative. ;)

You may be right Jos but I find that Assign + Eval  + related pitfalls is much, much harder to manage than understanding how a speadsheet works, either single column (1D array) or multiple columns (2D array). Most people are used to sheet;column;row and that is dramatically similar to array[row][column].

Understood, but just worked on the OP's current line of thinking and pursued to get that cleared up first without changing too much.
I am not stopping any of you to chime in here and show the OP a better alternative. ;)

I think it's especially useful because you can create your own syntax (plus interpreter) and run the code with an undefined number of variables assigned on the fly. That's freakin' awesome IMO! :D

Certainly, but I wouldn't call such use "recommended path for new users of AutoIt/scripting/programming".

@czardas maybe you are right. but I never used them before and I'm sure I'll not use them.

When I saw them on help file. I was hearing some low voice. it was Autoit whispering don't use them please. lol

      Hi all,
      I need to use ControlMove() on some controls of a hidden GUI window.
      This works properly on a GUI window created with default style, but does not work on a GUI window created with style $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW
      func GUItest($bOverlapped) $m = GUICreate("test", 200, 100, -1, -1, $bOverlapped ? $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW : -1) $g = GUICtrlCreateButton("test", 0, 0) ControlMove($m, "", $g, 30, 30) GUISetState() endfunc GuiTest(false) ; button 'test' properly moved to (30,30) GuiTest(true) ; button 'test' not moved and still sitting at (0,0) Any reason for this unexpected behavior ?
      Any workaround to fix this ?
      Thanks for any help

      Hi all..
      I'm having slight issue that has be a bit puzzled.
      I have an Input control.. After a certain function runs, it Disables that Input control, and sets it to ReadOnly.
      When running another certain function, it re-Enables that Input control, and sets the style back to Default.
      Which does work, however, when typing into the Input control after re-Enabling it, the text appears as a light gray color, rather than its original black color.
      I'm sure there's a simple solution here.. But what that is, appears to be beyond me.
      Here is a simplified example code:
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= Global $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 245, 215, 192, 124) Global $disableBTN = GUICtrlCreateButton("Disable", 32, 64, 75, 25) Global $enableBTN = GUICtrlCreateButton("Enable", 128, 64, 75, 25) Global $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 32, 120, 169, 21) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $disableBTN disable() Case $enableBTN enable() EndSwitch WEnd Func disable() GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetStyle($Input1, $ES_READONLY) EndFunc Func enable() GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetStyle($Input1, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT) EndFunc  
      Any help would be greatly appreciated
      Thank you in advance!

      Hello!
      Im wondering if it is possible to 'empty' the variable value to save memory, for example i often use variable as a onetime use thing and would prefer to 'forget' it after is is used
      Maybe it is just as easy as to setting $vVar = Null, but i wanted to make sure that this is the case
