Select Case / Selecting multiple cases?

Recommended Posts

DWad

Background - I have a Select Case statement with 18 possible cases. I want to close my GUI when one of those cases occurs, but for ALL other cases, I want to leave the GUI alone.

The way I did it originally was to add a line to close the GUI in each of those 18 cases, but that means adding 18 more lines of code to do one function.

Is there a way to say (for example) "If case = case 1 through case 18, then closeGUI()"? Or a better way to do this?

Pseudo code of my current script-

While1

Select

Case 1 $msg=ms1

closeGUI()

Case 2 $msg=ms2

closeGUI()

Case 3 $msg=ms3

closeGUI()

Case 4 $msg=ms4

closeGUI()

EndSelect

Wend

For this particular script, the speed increase would be noticeable, but it makes my code look messy to have 18 extra lines of code, and I want to try to get my future scripts cleaner/faster.

Thanks all,

This would cut down on lines, but it'd be a long line:

Select
Case $msg=ms1 or $msg=ms2 or $msg=ms3;...
CloseGUI()
EndSelect

For those who are asking questions, look in the help file first. I'm tired of people asking stupid questions about how to do things when 10 seconds in the help file could solve their problem.[quote name='JRowe' date='24 January 2010 - 05:58 PM' timestamp='1264381100' post='766337'][quote name='beerman' date='24 January 2010 - 03:28 PM' timestamp='1264372082' post='766300']They already have a punishment system for abuse.[/quote]... and his his name is Valik.[/quote]www.minikori.com

Zisly got me slightly closer.

I ended up using a variable that would close the GUI after the Switch statements unless it got to the case else (which would set the variable to keep the GUI open).

Is there no way to say something along the lines of "If case 1,2,3 or 4, do this, else do that"?
