Change/Merge Array

Recommended Posts

goss34

Hi Guys,

I am hoping someone can help me merge 2 arrays or more precisely change 1 array to another type but honestly i havent grasped the full concept of how it all fits together yet so am struggling.

My current code relies on me setting variables in the script for the computers i want to process the full script against but this means i will need to re-write it to add additional PC's as and when required. See below:

Global $oErrorHandler = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "ObjErrorHandler")
Global $aComputer[3][2] =[["LocalHost", ""], ["PC44444", ""],["PC66666", ""]] ;2D array whereas 1st entry is the hostname and 2nd entry is for the status
Global $status, $result
For $i = 0 To UBound($aComputer) - 1
    $status = WMI_ProcessExits($aComputer[$i][0], "explorer.exe")
    Switch $status
        Case 0
            $aComputer[$i][1] = "Available"
        Case 1
            $aComputer[$i][1] = "Busy"
        Case Else
            $aComputer[$i][1] = "Unknown"
    EndSwitch
    _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($hListview, $aComputer[$i][0], $i)
    _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hListview, $i, $aComputer[$i][1], 1)
Next

Here is the snippet i found in the help files where it reads a text file into an array:

#include <file.au3>
Dim $aRecords
_FileReadToArray("C:\temp\Error.log",$aRecords)
For $x = 1 to $aRecords[0]
Msgbox(0,'Record:' & $x, $aRecords[$x])
Next

Can someone write me a little example of how i can replace the array with this?

Thank you

To make your script more flexible I would do the following:

  • Put the names of the PCs to check in an INI file. So you can easily add/remove PCs
  • With IniReadSection you can read all of them into an array
  • Create a second array with the size of the first array. This second array holds the status
Ini File:

[PC]

PC=LocalHost

PC=PC44444

PC=PC66666

Code:

$aPCs = InIReadSection("PC.ini", "PC")
$aStatus[$aPCs[0][0]]
For $iIndex = 1 to $aPCs[0][0]
  $aStatus[$iIndex] = Status of PC as stored in $aPCs[$iIndex][1]
Next

goss34,

Unfortunately you cannot use ReDim to increase the number of dimensions of an array, so you have to use a loop.

I used this text file saved to the script folder:

LocalHost
PC44444
PC66666

and then this script to get the names into a 2D array:

#include <Array.au3> ; Just for display later

#include <File.au3>

; Read in the text list of PCs
Global $aPCs
_FileReadToArray("List.txt",$aPCs)

; Create the 2D array to match the number of PCs in the list
Global $aComputer[$aPCs[0] + 1][2]

; Transfer the PC names to the 2D array
For $i = 1 To $aPCs[0]
    $aComputer[$i][0] = $aPCs[$i]
Next

; And this is what you get
_ArrayDisplay($aComputer)

All clear? Please ask if not. :D

Hi Melba,

I have had a look and tried to adjust my script and it almost seems to work but the listview doesnt show the status in the "Status" Column. I think this could have something to do wiith the UBound line but i honestly dont know what this line is doing so am unsure how to correct it.

Here is the code:

Global $aPCs
_FileReadToArray("\\psn001\transfer\list.txt",$aPCs) ; Read in the text list of PCs
Global $aComputer[$aPCs[0] + 1][2] ; Create the 2D array to match the number of PCs in the list
For $i = 1 To $aPCs[0] ; Transfer the PC names to the 2D array
    $aComputer[$i][0] = $aPCs[$i]
;Next
;Global $aComputer[15][2] =[[$PC1, ""], [$PC2, ""],[$PC3, ""], [$PC4, ""], [$PC5, ""], [$PC6, ""], [$PC7, ""], [$PC8, ""], [$PC9, ""], [$PC10, ""], [$PC11, ""], [$PC12, ""], [$PC13, ""], [$PC14, ""], [$PC15, ""]] ;2D array whereas 1st entry is the hostname and 2nd entry is for the status
;For $i = 0 To UBound($aComputer) -1
    $status = WMI_ProcessExits($aComputer[$i][0], "explorer.exe")
    Switch $status
        Case 0
            $aComputer[$i][1] = "Available"
        Case 1
            $aComputer[$i][1] = "Busy"
        Case Else
            $aComputer[$i][1] = "Unknown"
EndSwitch
    _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($hListview, $aComputer[$i][0], $i)
    _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hListview, $i, $aComputer[$i][1], 1)
Next
Do

I have followed the snippet you added but it is going way over my head, with your explanations i know what each line (or almost all) is doing but what i am lacking is the knowledge of how the commands work for example this section:

Global $aComputer[$aPCs[0] + 1][2]

And this section:

For $i = 1 To $aPCs[0]
    $aComputer[$i][0] = $aPCs[$i]
Next

What i am missing is what exactly the $i = 1 means? and the [0] at the end of the For line.

Hopefully you can see why i am struggling but i havent found any help in the help section that actually explains how all the variables work - this is what is causing me issues as i dont fully understand how the array works.

Thank you

goss34,

I see no reason why the code should not work - try putting in some errorchecking to see if you are getting the correct values returned. Add this line after the EndSwitch:

ConsoleWrite($aComputer[$i][0] & " - " & $aComputer[$i][1] & @CRLF)

Then you will be able to see what values you are getting into your array. :oops:

what i am lacking is the knowledge of how the commands work

That is why we are here! :rip:

Global $aComputer[$aPCs[0] + 1][2]

_FileReadToArray returns the number of items read in the [0] element - quite a lot of AutoIt functions do this. When we create a 2D array to hold the PC name and status we need to make it big enough - we can use this counter to do so. But the array is actually 1 element longer than the count as we need to add in the count as well. So we size the array to the count + 1 - as the code above shows.

For $i = 1 To $aPCs[0]
    $aComputer[$i][0] = $aPCs[$i]
Next

This is a simple For...Next loop. The For line sets the beginning and end values of the variable which will be used as a count. You can give the variable any name you like - by convention most people use $i as the variable itself serves no purpose outside the loop and so there is no requirement to save it.

Once the loop starts the code inside it is actioned (unless the end value you set is already less than the start value). When the Next line is reached the count variable $i is increased (by 1 unless you define a different Step value in the For line) and compared to the end value. If it is greater than the end value the loop stops and the code continues - if not then the code inside the loop is run again with the new value of the count variable.

As you can see, a For...Next loop lets you action the elements of an array very simply - just use the count variable as the array index.

All clear? :D

Hi Melba,

I am not going to say its all clear but i think once i have finished or corrected this script how i want it i will start another completely fresh and work using the help file and your explanations here and i think it will begin to make a bit more sense.

Adding the below line:

ConsoleWrite($aComputer[$i][0] & " - " & $aComputer[$i][1] & @CRLF)

Works lovely and returns:

LocalHost - Busy

PC55555 - Busy

PC55556 - Available

So it is still working just not writing the lines into the listview like it should. Any ideas?

Here is the full code i am using/writing: (shows where i create the list view etc)

goss34,

You are mixing native and UDF functions when writing to your ListView - usually a recipe for tears. :D

As you create the ListView with the native function, use the native function to fill it as well: :oops:

GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($aComputer[$i][0] & "|" & $aComputer[$i][1], $listview)
;_GUICtrlListView_AddItem($hListview, $aComputer[$i][0], $i)
;_GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($hListview, $i, $aComputer[$i][1], 1)

I get the 2 values displayed when I do that. :rip:

Thank you Melba you are a superstar! :oops:

Unfortunately whenever i am scripting it is a massive recipe for tears :D

With that adjustment it works exactly like it should. One more question you may know the answer to while i have your attention.

The whole GUI this script creates can be resized but if you resize it the embedded object stays the same size and it completely messes it up. I have been scouring the forums for a way to fix the GUI size so it cannot be adjusted in as few lines of code as possible (this way i should understand it). Ideally the resize feature would resize every item but i think that would be far too much trouble for me to write as i have no idea where to begin - obviously preferred because at the moment the default size could be too big for someones screen resolution.

Can you help with that?

Thank you

goss34,

...

a way to fix the GUI size so it cannot be adjusted

Just create the GUI to be non-resizable. :oops:

Post the GUICreate line you are using and we will see what styles you need to omit/add. :D

HI Melba,

O believe me i have tried just didnt get anywhere unfortunately.

Here is the GuiCreate:

$hGUI = GUICreate("RDP Broker", 1264, 810, -1, -1,  $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW + $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)                                            ; Create gui window

Thank you

goss34,

Rsizing must be something inherent in the combnation of styles you are using. So we need to get rid of it like this:

$hGUI = GUICreate("RDP Broker", 1264, 810, -1, -1,  BitOr($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, BitNOT($WS_SIZEBOX)), $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES)
;

That works for me. :D

Note the use of BitOR to combine styles - read the Setting Styles tutorial in the Wiki to find out why. :oops:

      Greetings,
        I seem to be having a problem trying to insert values into an array in excess of the size of the array (its Ubound value).  I thought the command would simply 'ReDim' the array in order to add another value...however that does not seem to be happening.  My code is as below:
       
      ;**SET DYNAMIC ARRAY DIMENSIONS... $vValue = Int($_STRUCTURE_LEVEL - 1) ;seek the '$_HIERARCHY' level that is one 'previous' to the 'current' value...! $iStart = 0 ;set to begin search from element "0" in array... Do $_Files_Located = _Arraysearch($_HIERARCHY, $vValue, $iStart) if Int($_Files_Located) <> -1 Then $iEnd = 1 For $_RIGGING = 0 to Ubound($_LINE_DETAIL3) - 1 _ArrayInsert($_STRUCTURES, $_Files_Located + $iEnd, String($_LINE_DETAIL3[$_RIGGING])) _ArrayInsert($_HIERARCHY, $_Files_Located + $iEnd, Int($_STRUCTURE_LEVEL)) _ArrayInsert($_INFERIOR_TMPLS, $_Files_Located + $iEnd, Int(-1)) $iEnd += 1 ;increment EACH ITERATION... Next ;Next $_RIGGING EndIf ;'$_Files_Located' NOT "-1"...value for previous '$_STRUCTURE_LEVEL' ;was located in '$_HIERARCHY' array... $iStart += (Ubound($_LINE_DETAIL3) + 1) ;increment the offset index element position to begin the next search... ;"+ 1" to INCLUDE the 'parent' ('searched') UNIT...! Until $_Files_Located == -1 ;end loop when previous '$_STRUCTURE_LEVEL' is NOT found in '$_HIERARCHY' array... ;**  
        This code routine works perfectly fine except when the 'searched' value ($_Files_Located) happens to be the final element position in the searched array...how can I modify this routine so that the final additions at the end of the array(s) are made?  I thank in advance for any replies.

      Hey,
      what is more efficient, using multiple arrays or one multidimensional array?
       
      ; Hamster data structure using multiple arrays Global $HamsterCount = 6 Global $HamsterX[$HamsterCount] Global $HamsterY[$HamsterCount] ;giving each hamster an x and y position For $i=0 To $HamsterCount-1 $HamsterX[$i] = 0 $HamsterY[$i] = 0 Next ; The same hamster data structure using one multidimensional array Global $HAMSTER_COUNT = 6 Global Enum $HAMSTER_X, _ $HAMSTER_Y, _ $HAMSTER_MAX Global $Hamsters[$HAMSTER_COUNT][$HAMSTER_MAX] ;giving each hamster an x and y position For $i=0 To $HAMSTER_COUNT-1 $Hamsters[$i][$HAMSTER_X] = 0 $Hamsters[$i][$HAMSTER_Y] = 0 Next

      I know how JSON works. However JSON data is typically received from web based servers. 
       
      My question is:
      Has anyone considered to use, or currently actively using JSON as an internal data container? 
      Internal here as in an ordinary AutoIt data type, generated, populated and manipulated within an AutoIt script, without any external data sources. 
      The JSON and BinaryCall UDFs work well and appear the de facto defaults. Are there any thoughts on using JSON for internal variable values instead of the typical array? 
      Also, there can be situations where such a JSON collection contains an array and it will have to be parsed using typical array functions. 
      Currently I am working on a small project where I have to keep and use various identifiers from different sources. There are several ideas in this regard, some involving SQL child tables and arrays stored with keys (maps), which lead me to think that JSON may be a more suitable data container. It readily shrinks and stretches, allowing for dynamic data growth.  JSONs ability to add new repeating data groups on the fly makes it particularly powerful and appealing. 
      Ideas and suggestions welcome

      Hello all! I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday festivities. 
      I'm working on a script that involves copying a string of text from an Excel workbook and searching for it in a particular website's search tool. If a result is found, it will do something. If not, it will do something else.
      So far, it can successfully execute the search -- and then it shows me the results in an array.
      Screenshot of the successful search:

      The search results in an array:

      My main question is: How do I create an If... Then based on what is found in the search results? I need additional tasks to run if Col 1, Row 2 in the array contains the exact string I searched for. (Am I going about this the right way?)
      My next question (I might make a new thread for): How do I make the whole thing loop, as in, copy the next cell in the Excel sheet and do the whole thing over again until there's no more? I understand that a For/Next loop thingy would be used. I just don't know how. Loops are really confusing to me.
      Thank you all for your guidance and have a happy new year!

      hi,
      i have checkboxes and each checkbox that checked, i put in array. 
      now, im stuck on how to loop the checked array and store in in one variable. what i can do now, is only write the result into a text file. 
      below is the code:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> ;~ #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> Global $Count = 3 Global $CheckBoxP[$Count] Global $step[$Count] global $array1[1] Global $ExitResult $hGUI = GUICreate("Summary Steps", 500, 400) GUISetFont(12, 400, "Tahoma") GUICtrlCreateLabel( "Please Select the Summary Steps for Script Check", 70, 20) GUISetFont(10, 400, "Tahoma") Global $array_Pstep[3] = ["fix2","fix1","fix3"] global $step[3] = ["2","3","4"] $Spacing = 50 For $i = 0 To UBound($array_Pstep) - 1 $CheckBoxP[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($array_Pstep[$i], 80, $Spacing + (20 * $i), 65, 17) Next $submit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Submit",180, 280, 80, 30) $exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit",180, 320, 80, 30) GUISetState() While 1 $Msg = GUIGetMsg() Select case $Msg=$submit For $i = 0 To $Count - 1 If GUICtrlRead($CheckBoxP[$i]) = $GUI_CHECKED Then _ArrayAdd($array1, $step[$i]) EndIf Next Global $logfilerray = @WorkingDir & "\checkedlist.txt" FileDelete ($logfilerray) Global $readlogfile = FileOpen($logfilerray,1) for $a = 1 to UBound($array1) - 1 ;~ $var=$array1[$a] FileWriteLine($readlogfile,$array1[$a]) Next FileClose($readlogfile) Exit case $Msg=$exit $ExitResult = MsgBox(1,"Summary Step", "Continue to Exit ?") if $ExitResult = 1 Then ;ok Exit EndIf Exit EndSelect WEnd
