# Program help with array and check box • ### Question

• I have the following code that gets the number of files in a directory and then adds a checkbox to them using Fremy extensions, then list them in a row in the graphics window. What I would like to do is limit the lenght of the row list to ten checkboxes then start a new row limiting each row to ten.

'Gets the number of files in item folder
NumSelectBox  = File.GetFiles(Path + "\Items\Items folder\")'this is a bunch of text files in this directory
Itemcount =  Array.GetItemCount(NumSelectBox)

For i = 1 To Itemcount
SelectItemNum  = NumSelectBox[i]
ItemNumber = File.ReadContents  (SelectItemNum  )'Reads each file to get the item name
Controls.Move(ItemtextBox[i], 4,50 + 23*i)' 23 dictates the spacing
EndFor

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Thanks,

Steve

• You can use two variables, X and Y, then use an If statement:

If x > this amout Then

x=starting amount

EndIf

This code however may be better for you:

maxRows=3

maxCols=10

y=0

x=0

For i = 1 to maxRows

y=y+50

For j = 1 to maxCols

FCControls.Move(check[j][i], x, y)

x=x+50

EndFor

x=0

EndFor
