3rd Array question

What is the best way to do this.

On form1 I have an array of 32 textbox
txtValue(0))....txtValue(31)

On form2 I have an array of 32 checkboxes
chkValue(0)....chkValue(31)

When form2 opens it looks at form1 (form 1 is still open)

If form1.TxtValue(0).BackColor = &H80FFFF Then
ChkValue(0).value = 1
Else
ChkValue(0).value = 0
End If

If form1.txtValue(1).BackColor =&H80FFFF Then
ChkValue(1).value = 1
Else
ChkValue(1).value = 0
End If

........

Is there a better way to do this, instead of using a bunch of if statements?

thanks much

You should look at the examples from your other two questions and note how loops were used and try to do this yourself first and then come here if you cant figure it out.

Would a loop be faster that a bunch of if statements, I'm really looking for performance.

well what in your program is making the backcolor yellow anyways? is it set at design time or is it something that happens at runtime?

For I% = 0 to 31
  If form1.TxtValue(I).BackColor = &H 80FFFF Then
    ChkValue(I).value = 1
  Else
    ChkValue(I).value = 0
  End If
Next I


That does it, and it's the fastest both programming & CPU time consuming way to do it. Can't remove the else or previous values would not be removed

Dim i As Integer
For i = 0 to TxtValue.Ubound
If form1.TxtValue(i).BackColor = &H80FFFF Then
ChkValue(i).value = 1
Else
ChkValue(i).value = 0
End If
Next


thats if you want to use a loop

Explication : What is does is looping through all the box using a variable, giving the variable all the values of the textbox one after the other, and checking if that's right or not every times.

Azra is the same as mine, except that I used the % to "dim" my variable.

It is set at runtime by a user clicking on it.  It serves as an indicator that the value in that control will be changed.

then just add code there and then to set the checkbox value. right where you use that code to change the color just add one more line

form2.chkValue(index).Value = 1
