Loop thru array and get title of checkboxes

Recommended Posts


Hello. I am new to AUTOIT. I have question for you guys.

I have 3 check-boxes that I need to get the values from and output them as an array.

I am trying to add an element to the $arrayToBeUsedLater array every time the value of an element from the $aArrayOfCheckBoxes is equal to 1

This is the code (I know it is not done by coding standards,; the end part of the code can be ignored if it is not the problem):

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <array.au3>

   Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Please select your profile", 500, 500)
   Local $OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 400, 460, 85, 25)
   Local $cancel = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 300, 460, 85, 25)

   Local $idCheckbox = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("checkbox 1", 10, 200, 185, 25)
   Local $idCheckbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("checkbox 2", 10, 220, 185, 25)
   Local $idCheckbox4 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("checkbox 3", 10, 240, 185, 25)

   Local $aArrayOfCheckBoxes[3] = [$idCheckbox, $idCheckbox1, $idCheckbox4]

   Local $control1

   ;will use for output
   Local $arrayToBeUsedLater = []

   For $j = 0 To UBound($aArrayOfCheckBoxes)
      if GUICtrlRead($aArrayOfCheckBoxes[$j]) = 1 Then
         $control1 = GUICtrlRead($aArrayOfCheckBoxes[$j], 1)
         _ArrayAdd($arrayToBeUsedLater, $control1)
         Exit ; <-- there might be a problem here

   GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

   While 1
      Switch GUIGetMsg()
         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $OK, $cancel

   While 1
      $msg = GUIGetMsg()
         Case $msg = $OK
            MsgBox(0, "", "You selected: " & $arrayToBeUsedLater)
         Case $msg = $cancel
            MsgBox(0, "", "Your data was not saved ")

The error that i get is this:

....Desktop\AutoIt\test1.au3" (21) : ==> Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.:
if GUICtrlRead($aArrayOfCheckBoxes[$j]) = 1 Then
if GUICtrlRead(^ ERROR
>Exit code: 1    Time: 0.2369

I believe that the problem might be in the For loop. Can anyone help me ?

Thanks ,

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.
