Need help eliminating a repetitive task

3 posts in this topic

Hi, I have a script that runs internet explorer and uses the same URL with a slightly different address. For example:

Func PageSwitcher

$x = 0

If $x = 0 Then
 Run ("C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore http://www.webpage.com/number1", "")
 $x = $x + 1
 Exitloop
Endif

If $x = 1 Then
 Run ("C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore http://www.webpage.com/number2", "")
 $x = $x + 1
 Exitloop
EndIf

If $x = 2 Then
 Run ("C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore http://www.webpage.com/number3", "")
 $x = $x - 2   ; now $x equals 0 and repeats the loop
 Exitloop
EndIf

EndFunc

Now, is there a more efficient way to do this? The way I have come up with works, but I have to have practically the same thing copied about 40 times with only a slight change in the link. I was thinking perhaps there was a way to take the "numberX" part out and replace it with a variable that had all of the number 1s, 2s, etc defined in it, and it would just grab them in order when called up. Any help- especially an example script- would be much appreciated, thanks :P

Func PageSwitcher()
    Dim $x
    For $i = 1 To 10
        Run (@ProgramFilesDir & "\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe http://www.webpage.com/number" & $i, @ProgramFilesDir & "\Internet Explorer")
        $x = $x + 1
    Next
;Sleep(500); I comment this out but you may need it
EndFunc

erebus has the answer, but if you ever want something LESS automated, you should look at the increment bookmarklet

Details at http://www.squarefree.com/bookmarklets/misc.html

You can put the bookmarklet in your favorites or links toolbar
