Array incorrect number subscripts?

Recommended Posts


I am trying to pass elements from a 1D array to a 2D array

below is my code, and the error I kept getting is "Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded."

#include <Array.au3>    ; For _ArrayDisplay()

$data = "0_0,-1_0,-2_0,-3_0,-4_0,-5_0"

_Process ( $data )

Func _Process ( $in )
    $dataRaw = StringSplit ( $in, "," )
    ;_ArrayDisplay ($dataRaw)
    Global $mapArray [$dataRaw[0]+1][2]
    ;_ArrayDisplay ($mapArray)
    For $i = 1 To $dataRaw[0] Step 1
        $temp = StringSplit ($dataRaw[$i], "_")
        ;_ArrayDisplay ($temp)
        For $a = 1 To $temp[0] Step 1
            $mapArray[$i][$a] = $temp[$a] ;<-- error here
            ;            ^^^^ need to be [$a-1]

    ;_ArrayDisplay ($mapArray)

EDIT: fixed it, thanks to this thread

When you set the second dimension of an array to 2, it lets you set values to $array[$whatever][0] and $array[$whatever][1]. You're trying to set $array[$whatever][1] and $array[$whatever][2], so the subscript dimension range is exceeded. Change $mapArray[$i][$a] = $temp[$a] to $mapArray[$i][$a - 1] = $temp[$a]

You have declared $mapArray [$dataRaw[0]+1][2] - so the available values of the second dimension are [0] and [1].

Yet here

For $a = 1 To $temp[0] Step 1

$mapArray[$i][$a] = $temp[$a] ;<-- error here


you are trying to address the second dimension of the array using [$a] which goes from [1] to [2].

Try changing it to:

For $a = 1 To $temp[0] Step 1

$mapArray[$i][$a - 1] = $temp[$a] ;<-- error here


and it should work. Or you could declare the array with [3] as the second dimension. :D
