User defined mapping?

This is my current code, it works fine, but I need to add another element which I don't know how to go about it.  As you can see below,
txtLocation(0).text = Trim(Mid(strBuff, 342, 9))
txtLocation(1).text = Trim(Mid(strBuff, 424, 9))
and so on .... txtLocation(15)

Except, that I do not always want txtLocation(0).text = Trim(Mid(strBuff, 342, 9)).  It could equal any one of the 16 values.  A user would decide which values goes with which txtLocation.

The user input would come from from2, where there are 16 boxes called txtUserDefinedLocation(index).text

Thus if txtUserDefinedLocation(0).text =1 Then txtLocation(0).text = Trim(Mid(strBuff, 424, 9))


-------------------Code-----------------
Private Sub RefreshScreen1()

Dim strBuff As String
strBuff = Display.Contents

Dim i As Integer
Dim x As Integer

x = 342
For i = 0 To 15

txtLocation(i).Text = Trim(Mid(strBuff, x, 9))
     
x = x + 82

Next
End Sub

----------------End of Code------------

Thanks much

Hi,

Actually, if your interval between all the elements is always 82.
I am assuming that the numbering in 1-based, and not zero-based as the array element indexes are.

Here's an updated function for you :

-------------------Code-----------------
Private Sub RefreshScreen1()

Dim strBuff As String
strBuff = Display.Contents

Dim i As Integer
Dim x As Integer
Dim iItemNr As Integer

x = 342
For i = 0 To 15
  iItemNr = CInt(txtUserDefinedLocation(i).Text) - 1
  txtLocation(i).Text = Trim(Mid(strBuff, (x + (iItemNr * 82)), 9))

Next
End Sub

----------------End of Code------------

In order to have it bulletbroof, you should first validate ALL the txtUserDefinedLocation text boxes for valid numeric input within the correct range (1 to 16)


Hope this helps.

I'm not sure I get this, but is this what you're looking for??

Private Sub RefreshScreen1()

Dim strBuff As String
strBuff = Display.Contents

Dim i As Integer
Dim x As Integer

x = 342
For i = 0 To 15

txtLocation(i+1).Text = Trim(Mid(strBuff, x, 9))
       
x = x + 82

Next
End Sub

This would fill txtLocation(1) thru txtLocation(16) and not fill txtLocation(0)...

If this is not what you're looking for, please explain further...


Cheers!®©
