A big problem

Recommended Posts


Hello, I've got this big problem with this piece of code:

Case $Button3
        $open1 = FileOPen($file1, 0)
        $read1 = FileReadLine($open1)
        $a1= StringSplit($read1, ",")
        $open2 = FileOpen($file2, 0)
        $read2= FileReadLine($open2)
        $a2= StringSplit($read2, ",")
            $i = $i+1
            _ArraySearch($a1, $a2[$i])
            MsgBox(64, "", "Now searching for: "&$a2[$i])
            If @error Then
                MsgBox(64,"", "Couldn't find "&$a2[$i]&" continue")
                MsgBox(64,"","Found: "&$a2[$i]&" - now erasing")
            _ArrayDelete($a1, $a2[$i])
        Until $i = UBound($a2)

The code works but when it finishes the deleting I get this error:

C:\Documents and Settings\Admin\Local Settings\Temp\test.au3 (40) : ==> Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.:

_ArraySearch($a1, $a2[$i])

_ArraySearch($a1, ^ ERROR

>Exit code: 1 Time: 6.034

How can I fix this?

Your problem lies in this line:

Until $i = UBound($a2)

Remember that AutoIt arrays start at 0, so a 4 element array has the indices 0, 1, 2, 3.

UBound returns the number of elements in the array (4), not the highest index (3) - and yes I agree it should have been called something else when it was introduced into the language. :P

So if you wait until the count reaches the number of elements, you are one over the highest index and when you try to access it, you get an error. ;)

Try using

Until $i = UBound($a2) - 1

All clear? :blink:
