While.... Wend loop for a given number of times ...

6 posts in this topic

I have been using

While 1

<the task>

WEnd

to carry out a task repeatedly.

How do I modify this method so I can carry out the task "X" times?

An input popup asking the question "How may times do you want to repeat ths task" would be ideal?

Any help appreciated, thanks, Simon.

there are several easy ways...

use a FOR loop..

for $i = 0 to 100
<task>
next

or in a while....

$i = 0
while $i < 100
<task>
$i += 1
WEnd

or a do loop...

$i = 0
Do
<task>
$i +=1
until $i = 100

Yeah, like he said, but for the input..

$i = 0

$repeats = InputBox("Repeats", "How many loops?", "", 300, 100, 300, 300)

While( $i < $repeats )

<the task>

$i = ( $i + 1 )

WEnd

I get an error with the syntax

$repeats=InputBox("Repeats", "How many Loops?", "", 300,100,300,300)

saying

"Error:Incorrect number of parameters in function call"

Any ideas, thanks, Simon ?

It means exactly what the error says, check the help file:

You have:

$repeats=InputBox("Repeats", "How many Loops?", "", 300,100,300,300)

Use this:

$repeats=InputBox("Repeats", "How many Loops?", "")

I get it, its just i didn't know how to resolve it?

However, I tried to resolve and followed the syntax assistant to the letter, and ended up with it working, but whatever number i I entered, I always got a "3" displayed, but the loop worked the correct number of times.

Resorted to your simpler method ..... works spot on.

Thanks, Simon.
