Problem with election program

Recommended Posts

DarkAngelBGE

Hi there, I am making a little program for a company to ellect a manager. It basically goes like this:

The user adds candidates. Votes are counted and saved. At the end of the election the winner is determined by a set of rules.

What I am doing is having a hash of candidates. I create a list view to show the added candidates. Now when I click on a candidate in the ListView, I want a textfield to update with his number of votes. Also when I put in a new number and hit a save button the selected candidate's number of votes is updated.

Here is the source code I have so far. Sorry that the captions are in german.

Attached is the source code. The problem is the saving of the votes. I have no idea to access the selected element of the list view. Could you please help?

For the list view element see the UDFs portion of the help file and look for GUIListView Management>_GUICtrlListViewGetCurSel

Also a script like this is probably better done using a database with 2 tables

The first table has the list of candidates in the first column and the votes received in the second

The second table should have a list of all of the elegible voters in the first column and the second column will just show if they have already voted or not. All you need here is to fill the second row with 0's. When an elegible voter votes the 0 is changed to a 1.

The concept behind the second table is;

If the voters name is not in the first column then they are not elegible to vote. (prevents padding by inelegible voters)

If the second column for the elegible voter is set to 1 then they can not vote again. (prevents padding by multiple votes)

In either case you disable the vote submission button.

You can just use the SQL functions in the AutoIt include files or you can use an Access database if Acess is installed.

Also when the Vote is submitted, there should be a refresh function that can just use _GUICtrlListViewGetText() and _GUICtrlListViewSetText()

You can also look at the examples for GUIListView by following the link in my signature and then clicking on the UDF's3 WebHelp link near the bottom of the TOC frame on the left.

Okay I am now at it but I am getting a syntax error here:

GUICtrlSetData($success,"Kandidat " & GUICtrlRead($inputVorname) & " " & GUICtrlRead($inputName) & " hinzugefĆ¼gt!")
                
            $vorname = GUICtrlRead($inputVorname)
            $nachname = GUICtrlRead($inputName)
            $anschrift = GUICtrlRead($inputAnschrift)
            $plz = GUICtrlRead($inputPLZ)
            $stadt = GUICtrlRead($inputStadt)
            $stimmen = 0
            
            $sqlstring = "INSERT INTO candidates (vorname,nachname,anschrift,plz,stadt,stimmen) VALUES ('"$vorname&"','"&$nachname&"','"&$anschrift&"','"&$plz&"','"&$stadt&"','"&$stimmen&"');"
            _SQLite_Exec(-1, $sqlstring)

Syntax error is on the line where I set $sqlString. What is the problem? :rolleyes:

You forgot to add the first ampersand:

$sqlstring = "INSERT INTO candidates (vorname,nachname,anschrift,plz,stadt,stimmen) VALUES ('"&$vorname&"','"&$nachname&"','"&$anschrift&"','"&$plz&"','"&$stadt&"','"&$stimmen&"');"

Ah thanks. :rolleyes:

Now my problem is that order by does not seem to work. :rambo:

Func _showWinners($aRow)
    global $h_winnerlist
    
    $vorname = $aRow[0]
    $nachname = $aRow[1]
    $stimmen = $aRow[5]
;Do not show column names
    if $vorname <> "vorname" AND $nachname <> "nachname" then
        GUICtrlSetData($h_winnerlist,$stimmen&" -- "&$vorname&" "&$nachname)
    EndIf
EndFunc

func calculateWinnerlist()
    $d = _SQLite_Exec(-1,"Select * From candidates ORDER BY stimmen ASC","_showWinners")
endfunc

..does not sort them by stimmen (number of votes). Instead they come out into $h_winnerlist unordered. :/
