Looping With $Variale Help

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have a piece of code that I use to set all the checkoxes on the page to on, and another section of code to turn them off. Below is a brief chunk...

Func JobSelectAll()

GUICtrlSetState($Checkbox_2, $GUI_CHECKED)

GUICtrlSetState($Checkbox_3, $GUI_CHECKED)

GUICtrlSetState($Checkbox_4, $GUI_CHECKED)

... and on and on

All my check boxed are sequentially numbered. Is there an easier way to loop from $Checkbox_2 to $Checkbox_45 in a loop or something?

Thanks, John

Use an array

All by me:

"Sometimes you have to go back to where you started, to get to where you want to go." 

"Everybody catches up with everyone, eventually" 

"As you teach others, you are really teaching yourself."

From my dad

"Do not worry about yesterday, as the only thing that you can control is tomorrow."

Does this help?

; array example

Dim $array[11]

For $i = 1 to UBound($array)
    $array[$i] = $i
    MsgBox(0,'Array:', 'Array index ' & $i & ' Value = ' & $array[$i])
Next

Instead of numbering individual variables, arrays allow you to use 1 variable for several values

Heres a short example that works with 5 checkboxes

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

Global $Checkbox[6] ;declares the the checkboxes variable is an array

$GUI = GUICreate("Checkbox Demo", 150, 250) 
$Checkbox[1]= GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Box 1", 10, 10)
$Checkbox[2]= GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Box 2", 10, 40)
$Checkbox[3]= GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Box 3", 10, 70)
$Checkbox[4]= GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Box 4", 10, 100)
$Checkbox[5]= GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Box 5", 10, 130)
$All = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Check All", 10, 160, 130, 30)
$Clear = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Uncheck All", 10, 200, 130, 30)
GUISetState()

While 1
    $Msg= GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $Msg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ;people clicked close
            Exit
        Case $All ;pushed select all
            For $i = 1 to 5
                GUICtrlSetState($Checkbox[$i], $GUI_CHECKED)
            Next
        Case $Clear ;pushed uncheck all
            For $i = 1 to 5
                GUICtrlSetState($Checkbox[$i], $GUI_UNCHECKED)
            Next
    EndSwitch
WEnd

That worked great! Thanks.

Just curious, why does the Global $Checkbox[6] have to be one greater than the actual number of variables? I have 45 checkboxs and had to set the Global to 46.

Thanks again, John

because when you declare i with "$checkbox[5]" five is how many "parts" you want it to have, now it starts off counting those parts as 0

so if you used 5, you would have to make your five checkboxes

Box 0, box 1, box 2, box 3, box 4

instead of 1,2,3,4,5

I just like counting starting from 1

I thought I would add something that I just found - now why this is not the definition of an array in the help file I will never know. I am not trying to say anything about the person that created the help file, but maybe it can be redone to include some better examples - I hope not to start anything, I have said this in the past.

Here is a definition of using arrays - http://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/index.php?title=Arrays


All by me:

"Sometimes you have to go back to where you started, to get to where you want to go." 

"Everybody catches up with everyone, eventually" 

"As you teach others, you are really teaching yourself."

From my dad

"Do not worry about yesterday, as the only thing that you can control is tomorrow."
