SetVariable Example

Post by Gluteus » Mon Mar 13, 2017 8:30 pm

I'm unable to implement it. I want change the value of DATASOURCE_LINE of my macro with each loop. For that I need to pass a variable to my macro.

Thanks!

EDIT: This has been solved.

Sorry, never reacted to your Thread because of "(F)CIM", read my Sig..., many Commands are not implemented for all Browsers/Versions, I was waiting until you would bump your Thread one day, from not getting any Answer(s)..., oops...!
(And I never noticed your "silent" Edit from 2017-05-05...)

And hum, glad you solved your Pb, but it's better to post your little Update (next time) in some apart Post rather than "silently" editing your OP, and you would be expected to share your Solution to make this Thread useful for other Users as well... :idea:

(Hum, and the "(F)CIM" part applies to your other Thread as well of course...)

Hum..., and the Thread Title could be a little bit more "Descriptive" like "Set Variable Example for/from [Whatever].", and is it really "SetVariable" in one word...? I am afraid nobody is going to search the Forum with "setvariable" as a Keyword...

Thanks for the reply!
I'm using the iMacros 11.5 .Net Component on Windows 10. And I'd still like to know how can I merge the additional DLLs. And I came across another issue where when the 'Play' button is clicked the window resizes itself to a lower size.

4 months later, ah-ah!, never too late... I had to read my previous Reply to remember what I typed...

OK for FCI... You have a new Version v12.0 that got released 2 weeks ago for iMB though I'm not completely sure if there is a new Version for the DotNet Component as well...

Open 2 new separate Threads for the new Qt's/Issues I would say, with all relevant Info in each..., the Window Resize sounds like a Bug to me, maybe already solved in v12...
(But there is not much "Expertise" on the Forum about the DotNet Component, most Users using it have a Support License I think and have direct Access to TechSupport, I've never used it myself...)

How did you solve this? I'm doing something similar, using variables to create a loop. I have the macro return a variable to use later:

Code: Select all

SET !EXTRACT NULL
SET !EXTRACT {{CURRPG}}
SET !EXTRACT {{TOT_PG}}
'ACTION return value CURRPG,TOT_PG
Then in another section of the macro, I try to update that value using similar commands, but from what I can tell it looks like the original value is being kept. Any help is appreciated.

SOLVED: I forgot to use a colon after 'ACTION

Yeah..., good luck with "that"... (= asking @OP for some Explanation...), I had already asked them to share their Sol but they didn't follow up anymore... :shock: :

Willing to help you (@devbc), but the "CIM/FCIM" part/hassle with @OP applies to you as well... :roll:

And you could give more Details, I don't really understand your Qt/Scenario to be honest, from the scarce Info you've provided... :?
You seem to be setting/overwriting 3 times in a row the same Var, yeah, that the "Purpose" of the 'SET' Command, but only the last "SET !EXTRACT" will "do stg", the first 2 Statements have no use... Maybe the 'ADD' Command is what you need (also)... :idea:
