Multiple GuiCtrlRead

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to combine GuiCtrlReads (ex. 1, 2) so I don't have to check it multiple times (ex. 3 below). Problem is, if I have "Wolf Dog" (ex. 2) in the string, it will be picked up by ex. 1 because of the "Dog". Is there a better way of combining multiple GuiCtrlReads without doing it like ex. 3?

If StringInStr("Dog|Cat",GUICtrlRead($ControlRead), 1) Then;ex. 1
    GUICtrlSetImage($ControlSet, $Animal5)
ElseIf StringInStr("Wolf Dog|Wolf|Fox",GUICtrlRead($ControlRead), 1) Then;ex. 2
    GUICtrlSetImage($ControlSet, $Animal6)
ElseIf GUICtrlRead($ControlRead) = "Lions" Or GUICtrlRead($ControlRead) = "Tigers" Or GUICtrlRead($ControlRead) = "Bears" Or GUICtrlRead($ControlRead) = "Oh My!" Then;ex. 3
    GUICtrlSetImage($ControlSet, $Animal7)
EndIf

I supose you could just write a regular expression to find if the word 'dog' is by itself or if it's part of a word. This way you limit what example 1 and example 2 are capable of.

ElseIf GUICtrlRead($ControlRead) = "Lions" Or GUICtrlRead($ControlRead) = "Tigers" Or GUICtrlRead($ControlRead) = "Bears" Or GUICtrlRead($ControlRead) = "Oh My!" Then;ex. 3
    GUICtrlSetImage($ControlSet, $Animal7)
EndIf
Bracket every item with the delimiter, this avoids partial matches:
$sString = "|" & StringStripWS(GUICtrlRead($ControlRead), 1 + 2) & "|"
If StringInStr("|Dog|Cat|", $sString, 1) Then;ex. 1
    GUICtrlSetImage($ControlSet, $Animal5)
ElseIf StringInStr("|Wolf Dog|Wolf|Fox|", $sString, 1) Then;ex. 2
    GUICtrlSetImage($ControlSet, $Animal6)
ElseIf StingInString("|Lions|Tigers|Bears|Oh My!|", $sString) Then;ex. 3
    GUICtrlSetImage($ControlSet, $Animal7)
EndIf

If the literal "|" might be in your string, use something more rare, like Chr(1), for the delimiter.
