#1 · Posted June 17, 2016 (edited) Ok I was writing a script where variables change value and I need to find out which one is the smaller value but greater than 0. I've tried out some codes in different ways but none work ): I don't know what I'm doing wrong since it's very simple math test. Well I'm posting the diferent codes I wrote, hope to get some head ups... BTW I'm new to Autoit, scripting and things. Test 1 expandcollapse popup;simple mathematics test to see which number is smaller but greater then zero ;whichever number is the smallest but greater than zero becomes true at the end $seven = False $ten = False $fifteen = False ;in this test $7 and $15 cannot be true unless we change the value Global $7 = 0,$10 = 10,$15 = 15 ;

#2 · Posted June 17, 2016 Mannyfresh15, I would use an array like this: #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Global $aValues[20] $aValues[7] = 0 $aValues[10] = 10 $aValues[15] = 15 Local $iResult = 9999, $iIndex For $i = 0 To UBound($aValues) - 1 $iValue = Number($aValues[$i]) If $iValue > 0 And $iValue < $iResult Then $iResult = $iValue $iIndex = $i EndIf Next MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Lowest value", $iIndex & @CRLF & $iResult) I think the code is self-explanatory. but please ask if you have any questions.

#3 · Posted June 17, 2016 I'll just deal with test1, the rest being left as "an exercise to the reader". There, you test whether $7 is greater than 0, which it is not ($7 = 0 and 0 ≯ 0) so the whole condition is false and the first msgbox never shows. Then you test whether $10 < $7, which boils down to ask if 10 < 0, an obvious NO, so again the condition is false and nothing shows. Same for the third test, asking whether $15 < $7 (i.e. 15 < 0) and same as above.

#4 · Posted June 17, 2016 M23, thanks for your example. However, it's quite confusing for a noob like me though. On the other hand I'm looking for something a lil more simple IDK if there is. You see in my test I just to identify the lowest value out of three different variables but exclude the one containing 0 is there is one. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

#5 · Posted June 17, 2016 Mannyfresh15, if you only ever have 3 variables then you can simplify the code a bit: #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> ; Create an array with 3 elements Global $aValues[3] $aValues[0] = 0 ; Set these elements to your 3 values $aValues[1] = 10 $aValues[2] = 15 ; These are the placeholders for the value and its index within the array ; We set a ridiculously high value for the max value to start Local $iResult = 9999, $iIndex ; Loop through the array and check each value For $i = 0 To 2 ;This is the value we are checking $iValue = Number($aValues[$i]) ; if it is greater then zero and less that the current max If $iValue > 0 And $iValue < $iResult Then ; Store the value and its index $iResult = $iValue $iIndex = $i EndIf Next ; Display the lowest value that is greater then zero MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Lowest value", $iIndex & @CRLF & $iResult) Clearer now?
