Loop With Changing Variables

Hi, again. I have a problem with loops.

 

The point is: The macro contains a series of variables like N20-N30. Now I have a loop and inside the macro shall take the loopcounter N1 and add 20. Then take the number to get the matching variable and put the content in variable N40.

 

Sample:

 

N1=0

N20=4

N21=6

N22=342

N23=12

 

1. loop N1=1, N40=5 (N1+N20)

2. loop N1=2, N40=8 (N1+N21)

3. loop N1=3, N40=345 (N1+N22)

4. loop N1=4, N40=16 (N1+N23)

 

I am not able to mix the variable name and variable content. I dont find any infos in the ME-help. Idea anyone ?

Hello Avarion!

 

You need to familiarize yourself with dynamic program execution. Here is your example:

 

// Set variables N20 through N30 to random integer values.
Variable Set Integer %N20% to 4
Variable Set Integer %N21% to 6
Variable Set Integer %N22% to 342
Variable Set Integer %N23% to 12
Variable Set Integer %N24% to 56
Variable Set Integer %N25% to 47
Variable Set Integer %N26% to 9
Variable Set Integer %N27% to 69
Variable Set Integer %N28% to 11
Variable Set Integer %N29% to 22
Variable Set Integer %N30% to 19

// Launch and/or activate the Windows Notepad.
Activate or Launch: "notepad" OR "notepad.exe"
Delay 500 Milliseconds

// Repeat 11 times (number of random variables). Save the current counter in N1.
Repeat Start (Repeat 11 times)
 
 // Set N2 to the current counter+19, which gives us 20,21,22,23,...
 Variable Modify Integer: %N2% = %N1% + 19
 
 // Generate a Macro Express command string to run.
 Variable Set String %T1% "<NMVAR:01:40:1:0000001:1:00000%N2%>"
 
 // Dynamically run the command string.
 Run Macro in Variable %T1%
 
 // Type out the values each time through the loop.
 Text Type: N1 = %N1%<ENTER>N2 = %N2%<ENTER>T1 = %T1%<ENTER>N40 = %N40%<ENTER><ENTER>
 Delay 250 Milliseconds
 
Repeat End
Macro Return

Well, it means nothing when you copy and paste it into a macro. However, the correct command line is generated each time through the loop when the macro runs. The first time through the loop it will be evaluated as:

 

Variable Modify Integer: %N40% = %N1% + %N20%

 

the next time it will be:

 

Variable Modify Integer: %N40% = %N1% + %N21%

 

and then :

 

Variable Modify Integer: %N40% = %N1% + %N22%

 

and so it goes.
