do until for next while?!?

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

The problem is that all of the For In Next, Do Until, While WEnd, seem to be for trying the same thing over and increasing a variable each time until it reaches a set limit.

Is there a more elegant way to do this than a bunch of if elseif thens?

The actions I need to try in the correct order should only be performed once each and once the condition is met the rest of the actions MUST NOT be performed. I hope this makes sense.

$clipstart = ClipGet()

if ClipGet() = blah or blah1 or $clipstart then

first set of actions

elseif ClipGet() = blah or blah1 or $clipstart then

second set of actions

elseif ClipGet() = blah or blah1 or $clipstart then

third actions

EndIf

Thanks

are you reading from the clipboard.?

Yes, but ignore that. I'm trying to do something until the clipboard contains a certain thing.

Here is a second part to the question too.

What if I have to try pressing down arrow once and then enter and if that doesn't work, press down twice and enter ad nauseum?

Switch/ EndSwitch or Select/EndSelect would be better perhaps.

Thanks, Select / EndSelect looks good.
