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".

@jchd : I was responding to what Danyfirex said, but (of course) you are right in what you say also.

@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

      I have a script that just adds some keyboard shortcuts for things like displaying the current song and artist, moving the window to the side so it won't pop up in my way, and play/pause, next song, previous song (these are the only 3 to still work since they don't need the window handle.)
      In some update recently, Spotify's window class swapped from "[CLASS:SpotifyMainWindow]" to "[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_0]". Using the new class in my controls doesn't seem to work, I've tried getting the window handle from the process handle (_GetHwndFromPID($PID)) but that seems to fail as well.
      Does anybody have some idea of a way I could get this script working again?
       
      edit: seems like discord has the same window class name, so could be some issue with this? Still not sure of a way to solve the issue though, I added a function to get the handle of the active window and can just use that now, but it was able to find it on its own before on spotify startup or script startup which would be preferred.
       
      Thanks!
