    Has anyone programmed a Baja based voting booth?

    I've started working on one recently, but no time to finish it as of yet. I tihk I may go the 32bit XSDK way instead though.

    I'm doing a light bar read prompt (saw one on another board, and had to have it).. Similar to a logon matrix, the command is highlighted and kept track of with a variable (i for instance)... the variable is then passed along to a switch statement, which in turn will pass the correct command key "A,B,C" along to the bbs to preform the command.

    My question, I need the switch to return the appropriate command key to the bbs, what function is best suited to do this? i.e. return str (where str is the command key needed to do what is needed)

    Thanks :)

    Actually, I think you want to use UNGETKEY.

    digital man

    I tried UNGETKEY, and the module went into a loop.. here's the tiny mod..

    !include sbbsdefs.inc
    !define LAST 3

    int m

    cmd_home

    print "\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b \b\b"

    compare m 0
    if_true
    print "[ Reply"
    else
    print "[ Reply"
    end_if

    compare m 1
    if_true
    print " Reply Mail"
    else
    print " Reply Mail"
    end_if

    compare m 2
    if_true
    print " Next"
    else
    print " Next"
    end_if

    compare m 3
    if_true
    print " Abort ] (?) "
    else
    print " Abort ] (?) "
    end_if

    getkey

    cmdkey ^F
    add m 1
    compare M LAST
    if_greater
    set m 0
    end_if
    pause_reset
    end_cmd

    cmdkey ^]
    sub m 1
    compare m 0
    if_less
    set m LAST
    end_if
    pause_reset
    end_cmd


    switch m
    case 0
    setstr A
    end_case

    case 1
    setstr W
    end_case

    case 2
    setstr ^M
    end_case

    case 3
    setstr Q
    end_case

    end_switch
    printf "it was %d\r\n" m
    cmd_pop

    The end being a debug just to let me know the pointers are straight. You'll notice I am attempting to use setstr to have the BBS message read section pick up the command key, how would I use ungetkey to accomplish this?

    Thanks for your help.

    compare m 0

    Stop right there. Why would you be comparing the value of 'm' when you haven't even set it to anything?

    if_true
    print "[ Reply"
    else
    print "[ Reply"
    end_if

    compare m 1
    if_true
    print " Reply Mail"
    else
    print " Reply Mail"
    end_if

    compare m 2
    if_true
    print " Next"
    else
    print " Next"
    end_if

    compare m 3
    if_true
    print " Abort ] (?) "
    else
    print " Abort ] (?) "
    end_if

    You should use a switch/case block rather than all these compares.

    Thats what I did. Since a defined int defaults to zero, and zero denoted the first line on the light bar.. well :)

    In any event, its working now. Thanks again :)

    It may _work_ but it is still what they call _erroneous_.

    You should not rely on the un-initialized value of a variable unless the language specification specifically states what that value will be.

    Or unless you are writing drivers for Microsoft...

    How did you know? hehehe. In most of the source files that came with SBBS, I did not see any variables initialized, so I assumed the default for anything declared was off, or zero, save for things such as "str", which are used internally.

    Thanks for the feedback :)

    You should not rely on the un-initialized value of a variable unless the language specification specifically states what that value will be.

    In most of the source files that came with SBBS, I
    did not see any variables initialized, so I assumed the default for anything declared was off, or zero, save for things such as "str", which are used internally.

    It's always a good idea to program as though there is a gun pointed at
    your foot.

    if ($x < 0) {
    # Negative $x
    . . .
    } elsif ($x == 0) {
    # Zero $x
    . . .
    } elsif ($x > 0) {
    # Positive $x
    . . .
    } else {
    # impossible
    print "Eeeeeeek!!!";
    exit 1;
    }

    Just because it's physically and mathematically impossible for something
    to happen, doesn't mean it WON'T happen! :-)
