Create some Variables with a counter

16 posts in this topic

Hi Snipez,

I found a new problem:

I need some Variables that will be created with a counter.

If it would be possible, it would look like this:

; Counter has value 3 for example
$i=1

for $i to $Counter
$Variable [u]&[/u] $Counter = $AnyFilename

next

msgbox($Variable1)
msgbox($Variable2)
msgbox($Variable3)

It would be used in a while loop, to assign different values of Filenames to the variables. The Counter isn't fixed, cause the user is allowed to run this progress maybe a million times.

Hope I could express, what I meant :D

Thanks a lot guys!

HI,

somethinglike this?

Global $counter = 3

For $i = 0 To $counter
    Switch $i
        Case 1
            MsgBox(0, "1", "$Variable1")
        Case 2
            MsgBox(0, "2", "$Variable2")
        Case 3
            MsgBox(0, "3", "$Variable3")
    EndSwitch
Next

So long,

Sorry, but "Switch" doesn't work (Beta version???)

And this can't work, when the $Counter is 4!

It has to be dynamic... the user may click 1 time another one clicks it 100 times!

Like the program would create the cases depending the number of $Counter

We all use beta for the most part, there's more functionality. Your explination marks could be construed meanly the way you have placed them. For the record, the "little" effort he (th.meger) put into it was actually more than you've shown thus far for your own issue.

Edit:

P.S. - Why is this even in the GUI forum...

Sorry, I didn't wanted to insult th.meger...

I just didn't understand the way, "switch" could be used with cases...

I'll try it with the beta version of AutoIt.

I wrote it in the GUI Forum, cause the problem is acutally from a GUI, if it helps you, I could post the whole code.

That's always better than no code, I can't stand when I try to do something for someone, and they say... "no, that's not what I want to do"... just drives me batty when they either "A" haven't explained themselves well enough or "B" if they have, a working/non-working example would have made it easier to debug.

Ok, here it goes.

$NextButton = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Next", 180,  65, 60, 20) ; Next entry to save. Should show the same GUI to save multiple contents

Global $counter = 4
$variable1 = "I'm"
$variable2 = "not"
$variable3 = "feeling"
$variable4 = "well.."

For $i = 1 To $counter
  MsgBox(0, $i, Eval("variable"&$i))
Next

Or you can make it an array.

Eval is not an array...

Eval is not an array...

I'm not sure what you're correcting me about. I tested this and it works. Did I ever imply that Eval was an array somehow?

All I was doing here was reducing redundancy from the first bit of code posted while staying as close to the origional concept as possible.

Then lesson 2, which is a whole different subject, says "You can also use an array."

Which implys that this would be even better yet.

Obviously I meant an array instead of $variable1, $variable2, etc.

.. uhh

Damit I don't need these head games!

My misunderstanding then. It wasn't a head game I was playing, it was to make sure you weren't under the impression that Eval the way you were using it was an actual array which is how I read your statement. My apologies since it doesn't seem to be the case.
