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

      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.
