Complex Variables?

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi, I was trying to make a complex variable, I'll just say it rather than explain it.. it might make more sense of what I'm trying to do.

so lets say i have a variable called gpix and I'm wanting it to do a Function inside it like so, kind of like IRC scripting if you've ever done it.

$gpixel = 2983299

$gpix = {

If PixelGetColor( 395 , 602 ) = $gpixel Then

Send("{ENTER}")

Else

Send("H")

EndIf

}

AutoIt doesn't like using {} so I instead replaced the {} with (). Again I had no luck. Is there something I can do to accomplish doing this?

A variable holds data and a function executes the code that is inside of the function. A function can contain, create, use, and manipulate variables.

Have you taken a look at the helpfile for examples on what variables and functions are? It gives you examples of defining variables, and using functions that will probably help you out a lot.

Thanks, I had read the variable/function in the help file after I couldn't do it but I must of went over it... then I came here, i searched everywhere in the function category including the links (which got me my answer) thanks again.

What you want is to create a function. The function that will do what you want (I think) would be something like:

Func GetKey($colour)
   If PixelGetColor( 395 , 602 ) = $colour Then
      Return "{ENTER}"
   Else 
      Return "H"
   EndIf
EndFunc

$gpixel = 2983299
$gpix = GetKey($gpixel)
Send($gpix)

Notice that the function is told what to find and it determines the key to send. It returns the value to the expression where it was called using the Return keyword. Read the help for Func keyword.
