InputBox help

7 posts in this topic

I am looking to make a small app that on run will popup an input box asking for a set of numbers.

15 minutes later I would like a second msgBox (I am guessing) to popup and display those numbers.

The first part I have running:

InputBox ( "Ticket NUmber", "Input your ticket number" , "", " M")

sleep(900000)

But I am not sure how to pull the numbers from the InputBox.

Any help would be great.

The InputBox returns a String and you have to store that String in a Variable, or the String is just forgotten.

Example:

$Input = InputBox ( "Ticket NUmber", "Input your ticket number" , "", " M")

Variable $Input now contains the return String from the InputBox.

To use this do this:

MsgBox(0, "Title", $Input)

I hope this was clear. Good Luck!

[spoiler:]

$Input = InputBox ( "Ticket NUmber", "Input your ticket number" , "", " M")
Sleep(10000000)
MsgBox(0, "Title", $Input)

You have to assign a variable to it, eg. $data = InputBox(blablabla), then sleep/set timer, and after a certain amount of time (15 minutes in your case) you could call a MsgBox(0, $data, $data) or something like that.

Great thank you both. One last part...

How would I make the output have more text then just the variable?

I was thinking something like....

MsgBox(0, "Reminder", "Here is your number" $Input) or

MsgBox(0, "Reminder", "Here is your number" + $Input)

but the first one crashes it and the second one only shows the text "Here is you number"

Thanks again

You are welcome... I should also mention --- use & to join text (a string) and + to add numbers.

$a = 1 ;number

$a = "1" ;string

...and I added a space after your word number - before the "
