Single Case item for all items in an Array

Recommended Posts


I have a GUI that has a list of all the applications available to kick off tests for.  

each application has it's own checkbox if you want to test it along with an input boxes for UserName, Password, and Database.

I'd like to use the Switch Case statement with GuiGetMsg() where if any checkbox is checked/unchecked it will automatically enable/disable the corresponding input boxes.

I'm envisioning something like below, but it of course doesn't work.  Is there any way to get the Case $hChk[1] to $hChk[24] to work?  or will I have to just do $hChk[1], $hChk[2], ... $hChk[24] on that case line?  And if I do that, how would I know which array # was clicked to know which input boxes to disable?

Switch $nMsg
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $hBtnClose
            Case $hChk[1] to $hChk[24]
                If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($hChk[?]), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                    GUICtrlSetState($hID[?], @SW_ENABLE)
                    GUICtrlSetState($hPW[?], @SW_ENABLE)
                    GUICtrlSetState($hDB[?], @SW_ENABLE)
                    GUICtrlSetState($hID[?], @SW_DISABLE)
                    GUICtrlSetState($hPW[?], @SW_DISABLE)
                    GUICtrlSetState($hDB[?], @SW_DISABLE)

Loop through the array like this:

Switch $nMsg
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $hBtnClose
    Case Else
            For $i = 1 To UBound($hChk) - 1
                If $nMsg = $$hChk[$i] Then
                    If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($hChk[$i]), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                        GUICtrlSetState($hID[$i], @SW_ENABLE)
                        GUICtrlSetState($hPW[$i], @SW_ENABLE)
                        GUICtrlSetState($hDB[$i], @SW_ENABLE)
                        GUICtrlSetState($hID[$i], @SW_DISABLE)
                        GUICtrlSetState($hPW[$i], @SW_DISABLE)
                        GUICtrlSetState($hDB[$i], @SW_DISABLE)
                    ; No point in looping further


Edit: I see Jos had the same idea.
