View Full Version : Checkbox values

12-04-2004, 01:11 PM
Hi Friedrich,

I created a variable called %RUNPROGRAM% On the Finish dialog I added a checkboxID of #DLG_FINISH_LAUNCH# and set it to store the results in %RUNPROGRAM%

In the script editor I added:

If %RUNPROGRAM% Equals "1" Then
Run Program %_SB_INSTALLDIR%\MyProgram.exe

This is at the very end, after the Loop Wizard/End structure.

I get the checkbox on the Finish, but nothing happens. I can't find anything in the help (not much there yet I know<g>) about how to detect true/false values from checkboxes. I've tried True also, but that didn't work either.

I got the hyperlink to work just fine:)

BTW: Will we have direct access to the script files? Meaning being able to edit them outside of the SB5 IDE?

Best regards,

Hi Friedrich,

Ok, I've figured out that NOT EQUAL TO 0 works for checking if it's on. It seems that the value of the checkbox when on is 1,000,000,000 rather than 1 and the value of it when off is 0,000,000,000 which is still equal to zero :D

Best regards,

Hi Arnór,

Documentation is under heavy development :)

Please see the "Run Checkbox Demo 1.sb5" demo script located in the EXAPLES folder.

To handle checkboxes, please use "Equals 1 on Position" instead of "Equals".

Does this help?

BTW, we have to use "Equals 1 on Position" because multiplecheckboxes are possible :)

Hi Friedrich,

That will work - just fumbling through as I don't know what I'm doing<g>
