I need help on the following topic.I am a newbie in autoit.: Prompt the user to enter their name. If the first letter of their first name is between A and M, then display a dialog box that says You are in the first group, if the first letter of their first name is between N and Z, then display a dialog box that says You are in the second group.

I just need to know how to go about it.$a i need to put the letters from a to m and in $b i need to put the letters from n to z

**************************************************************

I have reached so far:

#include <string.au3>

;Places the input box in the top left corner displaying the characters as they

;are typed.

$i = InputBox("Question", "Please Enter your Name?" )

$a= StringCompare("A", "B", "C", "D")

$b= StringCompare("E")

If &i = $a Then

MsgBox(0, "You Belong to the First Group", $a )

ElseIf &i = $b Then

MsgBox(0, "You Belong to the second group", $:D

EndIf

Hi,

I'd suggest to get the first character of the name and compare it to the boundaries:

#include <string.au3>

;Places the input box in the top left corner displaying the characters as they
;are typed.
$i = InputBox("Question", "Please Enter your Name?")

$firstchar = StringUpper(StringLeft($i, 1)) ; copy the first character of the name and make it uppercase
If ($firstchar >= "A") And ($firstchar <= "M") Then
    MsgBox(0, "You Belong to the First Group", "A-M")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "You Belong to the second group", "N-Z")
EndIf

Hope this helps,

Marc
