Why doesn't this work?

5 posts in this topic

I want the _FileListToArray to display only '.docx' files, but i want the results to appear in _ArrayDisplay without the '.docx' in it.

My thinking seems correct but the result tells me it's not.

The _ArrayTrim would trim the results to the right in 5 characters.

What is wrong with this?

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>

$FileList =_FileListToArray('D:\WordDocs\','*.docx',1)
$FileListNoDocx = _ArrayTrim($FileList, 5, 1)
_ArrayDisplay($FileListNoDocx)

It doesn't work because _ArrayTrim function trims a certain number of characters from all elements in an array but DOES NOT create a new one so it is modifiying the existing array $FileList.

You are welcome :huh2:
