I need help with multiple line variables (specifically the clipboard)  Topic is solved

12 May 2016, 19:58

Can you help me with this? I am trying to paste multiple lines of code into a program, and it is not working. Right now I am using the (parentheses) method to store the info in the clipboard variable. It doesn't store multiple lines however, not even when I put `n at the end. (Which I would rather not use as there is a lot of lines that would need `n s on them. This is how I do it now:

clipboard =
(
Insert
multi
line
text
here
)
Send ^v

Here's my whole code in case I missed something. (The clipboard variables are at the end.) (Sorry that its long af. :P)

Code: Select all

#singleinstance force
CoordMode, Mouse, Screen
CoordMode, Pixel, Screen
^+x::
Keywait, LButton, D
MouseGetPos, mousex, mousey
Sleep, 100
KeyWait, LButton, D
MouseGetPos, mousex2, mousey2
origin := mousex
loops := (mousex2 - mousex) * (mousey2 - mousey)
loopsforx := (mousex2 - mousex)
;loops := loopsfo
MsgBox, %loops%`n%mousex%`n%mousey%`n%mousex2%`n%mousey2%

loop, % loops {
PixelGetColor, color%A_Index%, %mousex%, %mousey%
;MsgBox % color%A_Index%
mousex++
;Tooltip % color%A_Index% 
;Send %mousex% %mousey%

If mousex = %mousex2%
{
	mousey++
	mousex := origin
}
Tooltip %mousey%`n%mousey2%
}
msgbox, "Done!"
return

Re: I need help with multiple line variables (specifically the clipboard)

Does the paste fail, or is it simply skipping the newlines? 'r'n is the newline method that the documentation says to use. Also, make sure you're using clipboard := because it will find the continuation section on the next line; a regular equals sign will trick it into thinking that you want a blank variable and it won't read the next line's parenthesis.
(Note that I can't test my code before posting, so beware of bugs! -Flarebrass Amatzikahni)
