Simple question about arrays in AutoIT

6 posts in this topic

Hello! I am trying to make a little application that keeps track of character movement.

Character moves from Pt a to pt B, and I would like to keep track of the last 100 movements or so. What I would LIKE to do would be:

have

$Global $pt[2]

$Global $move[2]

$Global $movementArray[100]

pt[0] = $blahX

pt[1] = $blahY

$move[0] = $pt

$pt[0] = $blahX

$pt[1] = $blahY

$move[1] = $pt

_arrayPush($movementArray, $move)

However, I have no Idea if I can do this in autoit. I have a feeling that I will have to set up separate arrays for xPosition, and yPositions.

All these arrays will be passed back and forth between functions.

Thanks for any help and advice you can give.

$aCords[1][1]

For $i = 0 To 100
;check for your cords here
     ReDim $aCords[$i+1][$i+1]
     $aCords[$i][0] = $xcord
     $aCords[0][$i] = $ycord
Next

Not sure if thats what your looking for but it will store x and y in a 2D array

Dating a girl is just like writing software. Everything's going to work just fine in the testing lab (dating), but as soon as you have contract with a customer (marriage), then your program (life) is going to be facing new situations you never expected. You'll be forced to patch the code (admit you're wrong) and then the code (wife) will just end up all bloated and unmaintainable in the end.

I'm sure it can be done but you didn't give us any detailed code to work with so the best I can do is point out a couple of errors in what you did give us.

Global $pt[2] ;; Don't use $ infront of Global, Local or Dim
Global $move[2]
Global $movementArray[100]

$pt[0] = $blahX;; On these 2 lines you forgot that pt is a variable so it must use the $
$pt[1] = $blahY

$move[0] = $pt

$pt[0] = $blahX
$pt[1] = $blahY

$move[1] = $pt

_arrayPush($movementArray, $move)

Thanks for the Assistance. I guess, what I am really trying to do is make a data structure that consists of a

1) movementArray. The movement array is single dimensional and each item in movementArray is a movement.

2) movement.

Each item in a movement consists of 2 points.

I understand that all variables in AutoIt are variants, so they necessarily can be arrays. However, I read in the autoit array wiki page that nested arrays were perhaps not desirable. What I am looking for is some advice on whether I should go about this project like this, or should I just have one data structure $movementArray[100][4]. Where

$movementArray[n][0] = starting pt x

$movementArray[n][1] = starting pt y

$movementArray[n][2] = ending pt x

$movementArray[n][3] = ending pt y

Thanks for any help / advice you can give.

If the values won't change then I would opt for the Large Multi-dim array. If that's not the case then multiple arrays will be better.
