For Next Loop problem

8 posts in this topic

Hi there, I wonder if anyone can please help with a problem with a for next loop?

I'm basically using Send inside a For Next loop to to send a page number to a field in a Chrome window displaying an electronic book, like this:


For $page = $startpage to $stoppage

_WinWaitActivate("TITLE OF CHROME PAGE")

Send("{"& $page &"}")
Sleep (1000)

Send("{ENTER}")

Next

This works fine but when the $page loop variable goes from 1 - 9 but when it gets to 10 it enters 1 again instead of 10. It cuts off the second digit.

What am I doing wrong? 

Thanks in anticipation for any help.

Did you try without braces, i.e.  Send($page)  ?

If you only need to count through try this idea

For $page = 1 To 15

;~     _WinWaitActivate("TITLE OF CHROME PAGE")

;~     Send("{"& $page &"}")
    ConsoleWrite("$page = " & "{" & $page & "}" & @CRLF)
    Sleep(1000)

;~     Send("{ENTER}")

Next

Have you tried the Send without the braces? They're not needed if you're just sending a string, they're only needed when sending a special key/character.
