Do.. Until.. If.. Then.. Count Problems [Solved]


Recommended Posts

I am trying to figure out why my count is going to 2 after this Do... Until... 

Local $vTopCount = 1
Local $vBottomCount = 1
Local $vFindStart = 0


DO

MsgBox(0,"",$vTopCount)

If $vFindStart = 'X' Then
   $vTopCount = $vTopCount + 1
   $vBottomCount = $vBottomCount + 1
EndIf

Until $vFindStart = 0

MsgBox(0,"",$vTopCount)

I would expect it to stay at one. :/ What am I missing here.

Take a look at this and you should see why (no pun intended):

 

Local $vTopCount = 1
Local $vBottomCount = 1
Local $vFindStart = "y"


DO

MsgBox(0,"",$vTopCount)

If $vFindStart = 'X' Then
   $vTopCount = $vTopCount + 1
   $vBottomCount = $vBottomCount + 1
EndIf

Until $vFindStart = 0

MsgBox(0,"",$vTopCount)

The light bulb came on finally. 

Thank you!

Local $vTopCount = 1
Local $vFindStart = 0

Do

MsgBox(0,"",$vTopCount)

If $vFindStart <> "" Then ;Will loop if anything is in cell
   $vTopCount = $vTopCount + 1
EndIf

MsgBox(0,"",$vTopCount)

Until $vFindStart = 0

Edit: 

Local $vTopCount = 1
Local $vFindStart = "X"

Do

MsgBox(0,"",$vTopCount)

If $vFindStart <> "" Then ;Will loop if anything is in cell
   $vTopCount = $vTopCount + 1
EndIf

MsgBox(0,"",$vTopCount)

Until $vTopCount = 2
