text from 2D array to string

8 posts in this topic

I have a 2D array and I need to transfer filenames from a column to one string.

this is how it looks like in the array:

blah.txt

text.dll

whatever.exe

and it should look like this in a string:

$string = "Names: blah.txt, text.dll, whatever.exe."

how would I go about doing this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Dim $arnames [3] = ["blah.txt", "text.dll", "whatever.exe"]
$string = "Names: "
For $i = 0 to UBound ($arnames) - 1
    If $i <> UBound ($arnames) - 1 Then 
        $string &= $arnames [$i] & ", "
    Else
        $string &= $arnames [$i] & "."
    EndIf
Next
MsgBox (0,"",$string)

;-))

Then it was not a 2D array you were talking about!

You can use the much simpler:

#include <Array.au3>
Dim $arnames [3] = ["blah.txt", "text.dll", "whatever.exe"]
$string = "Names: " & _ArrayToString($arnames, ", ")
MsgBox (0,"",$string)

What would the output look like? Would it display as `blah.txt, txt.dll, whatever.exe`, or would it be `[blah.txt, txt.dll, whatever.exe]`?

Also, what is the default output if the delimiter wasn't specified? (ie: `_ArrayToString($arnames)`)

click on _arraytostring in that codebox as it is a hyperlink to the helpfile.
