GUICtrlSetData Help

4 posts in this topic

I have a program that loads the skill names into a drop-down box using GUICtrlSetData.

This is the longer version which works:

$LoopID = 0
    While StringLen($Data_SkillName[$LoopID]) <> 0
        GUICtrlSetData($SkillName_1, $Data_SkillName[$LoopID])
        $LoopID = $LoopID + 1
    WEnd

    $LoopID = 0
    While StringLen($Data_SkillName[$LoopID]) <> 0
        GUICtrlSetData($SkillName_2, $Data_SkillName[$LoopID])
        $LoopID = $LoopID + 1
    WEnd

    $LoopID = 0
    While StringLen($Data_SkillName[$LoopID]) <> 0
        GUICtrlSetData($SkillName_3, $Data_SkillName[$LoopID])
        $LoopID = $LoopID + 1
    WEnd

    $LoopID = 0
    While StringLen($Data_SkillName[$LoopID]) <> 0
        GUICtrlSetData($SkillName_4, $Data_SkillName[$LoopID])
        $LoopID = $LoopID + 1
    WEnd

    $LoopID = 0
    While StringLen($Data_SkillName[$LoopID]) <> 0
        GUICtrlSetData($SkillName_5, $Data_SkillName[$LoopID])
        $LoopID = $LoopID + 1
    WEnd

    $LoopID = 0
    While StringLen($Data_SkillName[$LoopID]) <> 0
        GUICtrlSetData($SkillName_6, $Data_SkillName[$LoopID])
        $LoopID = $LoopID + 1
    WEnd

    $LoopID = 0
    While StringLen($Data_SkillName[$LoopID]) <> 0
        GUICtrlSetData($SkillName_7, $Data_SkillName[$LoopID])
        $LoopID = $LoopID + 1
    WEnd

    $LoopID = 0
    While StringLen($Data_SkillName[$LoopID]) <> 0
        GUICtrlSetData($SkillName_8, $Data_SkillName[$LoopID])
        $LoopID = $LoopID + 1
    WEnd

As you can see, this array gets loaded into 8 different drop-down box variables.

Now, I'm trying to make it a bit shorter:

For $LoopID = 1 To 9 Step + 1
        $LineID = 0
        While $Data_SkillName[$LineID] <> ""
            MsgBox(0, "DEBUG", $SkillName_ & $LoopID)
            GUICtrlSetData($SkillName_ & $LoopID, $Data_SkillName[$LineID])
            $LoopID = $LoopID + 1
        WEnd
    Next

The problem occurs in this line:

GUICtrlSetData($SkillName_ & $LoopID, $Data_SkillName[$LineID])

It complains about the use of the & symbol. However, this command works which is odd...

MsgBox(0, "TEST", $SkillName & $LoopID)

Any help would be appreciated.

try this...

GUICtrlSetData(Eval($SkillName_ & $LoopID), $Data_SkillName[$LineID])

8)

Didn't work.

That returns what's inside a variable. I want to actually combine a variable with a number. For example.

If the variable NAME is $Skill_

I want to be able to add 1 to the end of it so it appears like $Skill_1

You can work that out with Assign() and Eval() but that is ALWAYS a bad idea compared to simply learning to use arrays. You don't want to kludge together variable names, you want an array:

#include <array.au3>

Global $Skill[1] = [0]
For $n = 1 to 10
    _ArrayAdd($Skill, "Skill number " & $n)
Next
$Skill[0] = UBound($Skill) -1

_ArrayDisplay($Skill, "Skill list")

You can address the skill list above as $Skill[1] thru $Skill[10]. The first element in the array, $Skill[0], contains the count. You don't have to know how many there will be ahead of time.
