Concatention with Double Quotes.

4 posts in this topic

Dear All,

I want to write some string variables such as:

"1"

"2"

"3"

...

to be stored in an array named $idarr[$i]

I have written my code snippet.

Please anybody help me with it.

Dim $idarr[50], $str1, $str2

for $id = 1 to UBound($idarr) - 1 STEP 1
[b]$str1 = " " " ; The single double quote is surrounded by the other two double quotes
$str2 = $id
$str3 = " " "[/b]

$idarr[$i] =  $str1 & $str2 & $str3
......
..

The double quotes in bold,are giving me compilation error.

Anybody having knowledge how to assign it.

anks,

Either use single quotes to enclose the double quotes (my personal choice) or double up the double quotes (very confusung syntax). Here are the 2 used in a short script: :blink:

#include <Array.au3>

; Enclose in single quotes
Dim $idarr[5]
For $id = 1 To UBound($idarr) - 1 ; STEP 1  ; Default so not required <<<<<<<<<<<<<
    $idarr[$id] = '"' & $id & '"'
Next
_ArrayDisplay($idarr)

; Double up double quotes
Dim $idarr[5]
For $id = 1 To UBound($idarr) - 1
    $idarr[$id] = """" & $id & """" ; see what I mean by confusing syntax!
Next

_ArrayDisplay($idarr)

All clear? ;)

anks,

Told you it was confusing! ;)

Basically, AutoIt treats "" within double quotes as a single double quote:

""""
|| |
|| This is the closing quote
|This becomes a single double quote  
This is the opening quote

And now you see why I prefer the first way! :blink:
