A QBasic Problem

Now, this may seem a little vague to anyone reading this

but is there a way that, for instance i could get a user

of a program that i was making to enter a name for something

then, use the name that the user typed in to output to

the screen a certain variable that had the name that the

user typed in?

  • So in other words, you want a variable called whatever and if the user types in "whatever" to display the value of whatever on the screen? The only way I could think of to do this would be to check the program's stack for the variable name and get the value straight from memory. I have been trying to find a way to do this same thing for a while.


  • Well, thanks for your input, and if you ever do find a way could you please send it to me at plague53@hotmail.com. Thanks.

    Try

    line input whatever$ 'User inputs anything


    print whatever$ 'prints to screen


  • : Try

    That would only print what the user inputed. He wants a variable in his program to display when the name is typed.

    so in a way if you would have wanted to see the variable

    var and it is stored in say... varname$ then you want ot use varname$

    as a pointer to the variable var the only thing is that you dont use

    a hexadec number as an adress but a string.

    it must be possible somehow. (like open opens a file at the location of a string

    there must be some command that opens the memory on some location...


    good luck anyway.
