[SOLVED] Using an array for a function that returns the variable as an array...

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

So, I'm using the UDF to create a label that has formatted text, which creates a bunch of smaller labels with the text in different formats in different labels, so it returns the label as an array.

So if you used $Label1 = _GUICtrlCreateTFLabel(blah blah) and had a couple different type of formatted text, it would return $Label1[5] or something. My problem is that I used an array as the variable in the first place, and I don't know how to call the variable of the labels returned in *the* array that the UDF created. When I try what I think, it just crashes.

Sorry if this isn't very clear, I don't really know what the problem is myself.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about, you need the UDF, in the script dir, above for it to run.

#include-once

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include "GUICtrlCreateTFLabel.au3"
#include <Array.au3>

Global $Label1[3]

$Form1 = GUICreate("asdf", 617, 441, 192, 124)
$Label1[0] = _GUICtrlCreateTFLabel("LABEL!", 56, 80)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Try to show a msgbox with $Label1[0][1] as the text... (click this)" & @CRLF & @CRLF & "I just figured that this should be the format ( $label1[0][1]) since $label1[0] has an array attached to it...", 56, 120)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x000000)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xffffff)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

_ArrayDisplay($Label1, "$Label1 display")
_ArrayDisplay($Label1[0], "$Label1[0] display")

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

        Case $Label2
            MsgBox(0, '', $Label1[0][1])

    EndSwitch
WEnd

As far as I understand it, a single dimensional array which holds other dimensional array items is not the same animal as a two dimensional array. I believe that AutoIt does not work the same as Java for instance in this regard. I am certainly no pro at this, but what if you did something like...

Case $Label2
            Local $myLabel[1]
            $myLabel = $label1[0]
            MsgBox(0, '', $myLabel[1])
            ;;MsgBox(0, '', $Label1[0][1])

So you're saying that I can't do what I'm trying, in AutoIt? Why can I then parse the info with _ArrayDisplay() from $Label1[0], and why is it different than the 0 index of $Label[3]

mistersquirrle,

I have answered in more detail here in the Examples thread for the UDF as I saw that one first. Basically Fubarable is correct. :)

Yeah, thanks Melba and Fubarable. I didn't see Fubarables edit until a few hours after he posted it so I was to tried to respond and say that that worked.

If a mod wants put [sOLVED] or something, then feel free

mistersquirrle,

You can add [sOLVED] yourself if you wish. Just edit the first post and select the "Use Full Editor" option - that allows you to edit the title as well. :)
