Use of ByRef with GUI controls


Recommended Posts

First post. For a scripting language, AutoIt is a great development tool :whistle:

If I have a GUI label ($label1) and wish to change the font I can say:

GUICtrlSetFont($label1, -1, -1, -1, "Lucida Console")

I can put this in a function and call it:


Func ChangeFont(ByRef $nameofctrl)
    GUICtrlSetFont($nameofctrl, -1, -1, -1, "Lucida Console")

So, if I have more than one label ($label1, $label2, $label3, ...) I want to say:

For $i = 1 to 10
    ChangeFont("$label" & $i)

But it seems I can't pass a control (as a string) into the function. How do I do this without having to say:
