Repeating Macro From Popup Choice

Alright I'm working on a macro that will always need to run a different amount of times. I'd either like a popup box or menu that gives me a choice to select or enter how many times I would like the entire macro to run.

 

I've been having troubles setting this up. I want to be able to do this without having to set up 50 other macros that each have the processes run an additional time.

 

How do I set it up to have a menu or box I can select how many time. Any input is useful.

Welcome Killer,

 

It is rather easy. At the beginning of your macro, input a "Set Variable Integer" with "prompt for value". Set that integer to whatever number... lets say %N1%. Then, set the entire scope of your macro in a repeat loop. Set that repeat to %N1% times. It will then repeat as many times as you input into that first prompt box. See below example.

 

Variable Set Integer %N1% from Prompt
Repeat with Variable using %N1%
 // Run Macro here
 // Run Macro here
 // Run Macro here
 // Run Macro here
Repeat End

I would suggest using "Start Repeat With Prompt" repeat option. This will prompt the user for the number of times to repeat at the beginning of the loop.

Me too. I'm constantly discovering something new that make me go “Doh!” and then I want to go back and fix all the macros I had written while ignorant more because I’m embarrassed than lack of functionality. That’s what these forms are great for. We all help each other out to learn new things.
