Get string from as variable name

Recommended Posts

Thats my code and you can se how I call func checkAndRun()

Third parameter is the same as second but second is a variable name with $ and the third parameter is the function name as string.

; run func
checkAndRun($offOn_heal,$s_offOn_heal,"s_offOn_heal") ; checkbox

Func checkAndRun($offOn,$checkbox,$funcName,$toggle=False) ; this func check state of running function (checked checkbox) and check it or uncheck depends of state from json DB
    ; 1 so want to on or off ?
    ; 2 checkbox which one is it to determine if its checked now or no
    ; 3 for toggles (default all are checkboxes)

    If Not $toggle Then
        $checkedOrNo = _Metro_CheckboxIsChecked($checkbox)
        $checkedOrNo = _Metro_ToggleIsChecked($checkbox)

    $func = "$checkbox"
    ConsoleWrite("func - " & $func)

    If $checkedOrNo == False And $offOn == False Then
    ElseIf $checkedOrNo == True And $offOn == True Then
    ElseIf $checkedOrNo == True And $offOn == False Then
        ConsoleWrite("Stop func " & $funcName)
    ElseIf $checkedOrNo == False And $offOn == True Then
        ConsoleWrite("Run func " & $funcName)



So is there possibility to after call func like this with 2 parameters

checkAndRun($offOn_heal,$s_offOn_heal) ; checkbox

and in body of function make something like this to get from

this ->  $s_offOn_heal

to this -> "s_offOn_heal"

No, you can't get the name of a variable by just having it passed to a function. Pass a string instead.
Also functions are first-class citizens, so you can pass a function by its name (i.e. not a string). Then don't use Call().

In your code you test $offOn as boolean (False, True). Also the last sentence (function with only 2 arguments) doesn't make sense.

The logic can be greatly simplified, even if the working is unclear:

; run func
checkAndRun($offOn_heal, $s_offOn_heal, s_offOn_heal) ; checkbox

Func checkAndRun($offOn, $checkbox, $func, $toggle=False) ; this func check state of running function (checked checkbox) and check it or uncheck depends of state from json DB
    ; 1 so want to on or off ?
    ; 2 checkbox which one is it to determine if its checked now or no
    ; 3 for toggles (default all are checkboxes)

    $checkedOrNo = $toggle ? _Metro_ToggleIsChecked($checkbox) : _Metro_CheckboxIsChecked($checkbox)

    ConsoleWrite("func - " & FuncName($func))

    If ($checkedOrNo Or $offOn) = 0 Or ($checkedOrNo And $offOn) Then Return
    ConsoleWrite(($checkedOrNo ? "Stop" : "Run") & " func " & FuncName($func))

Seeing the name of that function ("s_offOn_heal"), might I suggest reading the Forum rules - particularly the bit about not discussing game automation - before you post again.
