If you don't like dealing with Scripting.dictionary you might want to try out this thing I whipped up yesterday evening and this morning. Basically just a simple wrapper around Scripting.dictionary to make the API a little bit less stupid. By "stupid" I mean "not like the awesome Python dict API". Created for the following reasons.. Wanted to get a basic understanding of AutoItObject. Wanted to get a basic understanding of the Micro unit test framework. As of 11/4/2014 AutoIt Stable has no native dict or associative array type. A >Map type is in the current AutoIt beta. It's laborious to use Scripting.dictionary all the time. The Python dict API is better than Scripting.dictionary's I thought about writing my own hash table implementation in AutoIt, but on balance I decided it wasn't worth the effort and just stuck to Scripting.dictionary to save time/effort. As you can see I've got a decent number of unit tests for such a simple implementation, so it should be quite robust. #include <Dict2.au3> #include <Array.au3> $dict = _DictCreate() ConsoleWrite($dict.len()) ; Outputs 0 $dict.set("key1", "value1") $dict.set("key2", "value2") $dict.set("key3", "value3") $dict.set("key4", 1) ConsoleWrite($dict.get("key2")) ; Outputs 'value2' ConsoleWrite($dict.len()) ; Outputs 3 ConsoleWrite($dict.contains("key2") ; Outputs True $dict.set("key4", $dict.get("key4") + 1) ConsoleWrite($dict.get("key4")) ; Outputs 2 $dict.del("key4") ConsoleWrite($dict.contains("key4")) ; Outputs False $aPairs = $dict.pairs() _ArrayDisplay($aPairs) ; Displays 2d array with column one contains keys, and column two ; containing associated values $aKeys = $dict.keys() _ArrayDisplay($aKeys) ; Displays array containing all keys $aValues = $dict.values() _ArrayDisplay($aValues) ; Displays array of all values $aDesiredKeys = ["key1", "key3"] $aValues = $dict.values($aDesiredKeys) _ArrayDisplay($aValues) ; Displays array of values for key1 and key3 GET IT HERE
Is there a way to share a Scripting.Dictionary object between scripts? I was thinking this would be possible with COM, but I'm not familiar enough with it to do so... Or is there a better way to share objects between programs? What about sharing arrays?
