Access array values returned from function

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I don't know how to search for this so I'm just going to ask it. Is something like this possible?

WinGetClientSize($title)[0]

In other words, I know exactly how many elements are returned by the function. Is there a way to get around having to set a variable for the array?

No. It only works as in the example provided by AutoIT.

$size = WinGetClientSize("[active]")
MsgBox(0, "Active window's client size is (width,height):", $size[0] & " " & $size[1])

The only other choice that could make it easier for you to read is to make a function for it. Something like this:

MsgBox(0, "Active window's client width is:", GetClientWidth("[active]"))

Func GetClientWidth($hWnd)
    Local $Width = WinGetClientSize($hWnd)
    Return $Width[0]
EndFunc

I run into this every once in a while with a function and wondered if there was an easier way. Like _PathSplit() when all I want is the extension or something like that. I hate going through allocating an array when all I need is one element of the returned array. The function idea will help. Thanks.
