arraysearch, is this a bug?

Recommended Posts


Hi guys, can you help me out a bit here?

I have an $arrayx[10][11]

$arrayx[6][11] = "h2o"

I tried to search what row that has "h2o" but failed, so I make a simple test a "2d" array first

#include <Array.au3>
Local $avArray[6][2] = [ _
["String0", "am2"], _
["String1", "am6"], _
["String2", "am9"], _
["String3", "am4"], _
["String4", "hail"], _
["String5", "am3"]]

$sSearch = InputBox("_ArraySearch() demo", "String to find?")
If @error Then Exit

For $i=0 to 3 ;-- ignore this, cuz maybe I got it upside down
    $iIndex = _ArraySearch($avArray, $sSearch, 0, 0, 0, 0, $i)
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(0, "Not Found", '"' & $sSearch & '" was not found on column ' & $i & '.')
        MsgBox(0, "Found", '"' & $sSearch & '" was found in the array at position ' & $iIndex & ' on column ' & $i & '.')

The result "am4" is nowhere to be found, is this correct?

The seventh parameter is $iForward not the $iSubItem to check. Perhaps you've meant:

$iIndex = _ArraySearch($avArray, $sSearch, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1)

..the it's assumed the you know which column it's on because you've search in that column, it only returns the row index.
