Translate Error Values to Text

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

So I have this printer monitoring tool I am working on and I am needing to translate the numerical values for the object values to their meanings. Some of the objects have 10+ values and meanings. I have been doing them like this:

If $printerstate = 1 Then
        $printerstate = "Paused"
    Else
        If $printerstate = 2 Then
            $printerstate = "Error"
        Else
            If $printerstate = 3 Then
                $printerstate = "Pending Deletion"
            Else
                If $printerstate = 4 Then
                    $printerstate = "Paper Jam"
                Else
                    If $printerstate = 5 Then
                        $printerstate = "Paper Out"
                    Else

These are the values / meanings I needs to translate before displaying on the GUI:

Value   Meaning
1   Paused
2   Error
3   Pending Deletion
4   Paper Jam
5   Paper Out
6   Manual Feed
7   Paper Problem
8   Offline
9   IO Active
10  Busy
11  Printing
12  Output Bin Full
13  Not Available
14  Waiting
15  Processing
16  Initialization
17  Warming Up
18  Toner Low
19  No Toner
20  Page Punt
21  User Intervention Required
22  Out of Memory
23  Door Open
24  Server_Unknown
25  Power Save

Does anyone know a better way of doing this? Thanks a ton!

That's what arrays are for.

DIM $errMsgs[26]

$errMsgs[1] = "Paused"
$errMsgs[2] = "Error"
...

msgbox(0,"ERROR",$errMsgs[$printerstate])

Cheers

Thanks Kurt! I am still not on the Array bandwagon yet, still learning...

so like this?:

Dim $errMsgs[25]
$errMsgs[1] = "Paused"
$errMsgs[2] = "Error"
$errMsgs[3] =   "Pending Deletion"
$errMsgs[4] =   "Paper Jam"
$errMsgs[5] =   "Paper Out"
$errMsgs[6] =   "Manual Feed"
$errMsgs[7] =   "Paper Problem"
$errMsgs[8] =   "Offline"
$errMsgs[9] =   "IO Active"
$errMsgs[10] =  "Busy"
$errMsgs[11] =  "Printing"
$errMsgs[12] =  "Output Bin Full"
$errMsgs[13] =  "Not Available"
$errMsgs[14] =  "Waiting"
$errMsgs[15] =  "Processing"
$errMsgs[16] =  "Initialization"
$errMsgs[17] =  "Warming Up"
$errMsgs[18] =  "Toner Low"
$errMsgs[19] =  "No Toner"
$errMsgs[20] =  "Page Punt"
$errMsgs[21] =  "User Intervention Required"
$errMsgs[22] =  "Out of Memory"
$errMsgs[23] =  "Door Open"
$errMsgs[24] =  "Server_Unknown"
$errMsgs[25] =  "Power Save"

Edit: it just dawned on me....... $errMsgs[$printerstate]

Another method is to use Switch...EndSwitch

$printerstate = 21 ; test
MsgBox(0, 'Printer error', _PrinterError($printerstate))

Func _PrinterError($error)
    Switch $error
        Case 1
            Return "Paused"
        Case 2
            Return "Error"
        Case 3
            Return "Pending Deletion"
        Case 4
            Return "Paper Jam"
        Case 5
            Return "Paper Out"
        Case 6
            Return "Manual Feed"
        Case 7
            Return "Paper Problem"
        Case 8
            Return "Offline"
        Case 9
            Return "IO Active"
        Case 10
            Return "Busy"
        Case 11
            Return "Printing"
        Case 12
            Return "Output Bin Full"
        Case 13
            Return "Not Available"
        Case 14
            Return "Waiting"
        Case 15
            Return "Processing"
        Case 16
            Return "Initialization"
        Case 17
            Return "Warming Up"
        Case 18
            Return "Toner Low"
        Case 19
            Return "No Toner"
        Case 20
            Return "Page Punt"
        Case 21
            Return "User Intervention Required"
        Case 22
            Return "Out of Memory"
        Case 23
            Return "Door Open"
        Case 24
            Return "Server_Unknown"
        Case 25
            Return "Power Save"
        Case Else
            Return ""
    EndSwitch
EndFunc

I like filling arrays this way:

$errs = 'Paused|Error|Pending Deletion|Paper Jam|Paper Out' _
    & '|Manual Feed|Paper Problem|Offline|IO Active|Busy' _
    & '|Printing|Output Bin Full|Not Available|Waiting|Processing' _
    & '|Initialization|Warming Up|Toner Low|No Toner|Page Punt' _
    & '|User Intervention Required|Out of Memory|Door Open|Server_Unknown|Power Save'
$errMsgs = StringSplit($errs, '|')

Saves typing and keeps the data compact.


BlueBearrOddly enough, this is what I do for fun.
