Change/Merge Array

13 posts in this topic

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:

Hi Melba,

As i expected it worked first time so thank you very much! :oops:

All i need now if your direct contact details for next time i have a problem :D

Thank you so much for everything, i now just need to tidy the GUI up and make it a bit nicer looking.

Thanks again

P.S. Thank you "Water" for your response to my initial issue.

      Haven't had much time to code recently. However the following thread inspired me.
      The debate about linear, parallel and binary search methods was rather interesting and, in an attempt to be diplomatic, I decided to combine @jchd's suggestion with @LarsJ's binary search example. I decided that the binary search algorithm required modification to make it more linear. As usual, 'if you invent something, it probably already exists and if it already exists, it exists for a reason'. My first attempt was not all that good. The code worked but was really a mess. I blame peer pressure (to post an example of a parallel search method).  I will delete that old code in due course.
      With a little memory jogging and a glance at the help file, the solution turned out to be quite easy: I just needed a better understanding of Euler. Further modification will be needed to work with more complicated unicode strings. The output could be returned as an array or a delimitered string. I'm not so interested in those details. I'm just going to post the algorithm for now and anyone, who wants to, can modify it to suit their needs. Both arrays must contain at least 1 element.
      Local $aFoo = [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,19,20,23,24,26,30,35,39,40,41] Local $aBar = [0,1,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,17,18,19,21,24,25,26,27,34,35,38,40] ParallelExponetialSearch($aFoo, $aBar) ; Compares two lists - returning positive matches. Each input array must be unique (individually) and in alphabetical order. Func ParallelExponetialSearch($aFoo, $aBar) Local $sFind, _ $iMin_F = -1, $iMax_F = UBound($aFoo) -1, $Lo_F = $iMin_F, $Hi_F, _ $iMin_B = -1, $iMax_B = UBound($aBar) -1, $Lo_B = $iMin_B, $Hi_B While $iMin_F < $iMax_F And $iMin_B < $iMax_B ; Toggle Arrays - Which array has most untested elements? This is the one we want to search next, ; so we can bypass more comparisons because (in theory) mismatches have a greater chance of being skipped. If $iMax_F - $iMin_F >= $iMax_B - $iMin_B Then ; $aFoo has more (or an equal number of) untested elements $Hi_F = $iMax_F $iMin_B += 1 $sFind = $aBar[$iMin_B] While $Lo_F < $Hi_F ; search $aFoo For $i = 0 To Floor(Log($Hi_F - $Lo_F) / Log(2)) $Lo_F = $iMin_F + 2^$i If $aFoo[$Lo_F] = $sFind Then $iMin_F = $Lo_F ; each match should be added to the output [perhaps an array] ConsoleWrite($sFind & " found at $aFoo[" & $Lo_F & "] = $aBar[" & $iMin_B & "]" & @LF) ExitLoop 2 ElseIf $aFoo[$Lo_F] > $sFind Then $Hi_F = $Lo_F -1 $iMin_F += Floor(2^($i -1)) $Lo_F = $iMin_F ContinueLoop 2 EndIf Next $iMin_F = $Lo_F ; minimum increment is one WEnd Else ; $aBar has more untested elements $Hi_B = $iMax_B $iMin_F += 1 $sFind = $aFoo[$iMin_F] While $Lo_B < $Hi_B ; search $aBar For $i = 0 To Floor(Log($Hi_B - $Lo_B) / Log(2)) $Lo_B = $iMin_B + 2^$i If $aBar[$Lo_B] = $sFind Then $iMin_B = $Lo_B ; each match should be added to the output [perhaps an array] ConsoleWrite($sFind & " found at $aFoo[" & $iMin_F & "] = $aBar[" & $Lo_B & "]" & @LF) ExitLoop 2 ElseIf $aBar[$Lo_B] > $sFind Then $Hi_B = $Lo_B -1 $iMin_B += Floor(2^($i -1)) $Lo_B = $iMin_B ContinueLoop 2 EndIf Next $iMin_B = $Lo_B ; minimum increment is one WEnd EndIf WEnd EndFunc ;==> ParallelExponetialSearch I hope this will be useful to someone. I believe it deserved a thread of its own!

      Afternoon!
      I have a requirement to return both a string and an array from a function so as a result I put them both into an array and returned that.  I can access them in their entirety after returning them but then I can't seem to access the array elements after this.  Should I be able to or is there a prettier way?
      #include <Array.au3> ;Memory info returned as a string and an array $memoryInfo = _getMemoryInfo() msgbox(0,"Memory Info",$memoryInfo[0]) _ArrayDisplay($memoryInfo[1],"Memory as an Array") Local $newArray[7] $memoryInfo[1] = $newArray msgbox(0,"Test element",$newArray[0]) _ArrayDisplay($newArray) Func _getMemoryInfo() Local $newArray[7] Local $array = MemGetStats() $newArray[0] = $array[0] ;% of memory in use $newArray[1] = Round($array[1]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total physical RAM $newArray[2] = Round($array[2]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Availaible physical RAM $newArray[3] = Round($array[3]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total pagefile $newArray[4] = Round($array[4]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available pagefile $newArray[5] = Round($array[5]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total virtual $newArray[6] = Round($array[6]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available virtual $memoryUsage = $newArray[1] - $newarray[2] $pagefileUsage = $newArray[3] - $newarray[4] ;Output/Return Local $returnArray[2] $returnArray[0] = "Memory: " & $memoryUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[1] & " GB " & @CRLF & "Pagefile: " & $pagefileUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[3] & " GB " $returnArray[1] = $newArray return $returnArray EndFunc A bit messy but hopefully it's understandable what I'm trying to achieve.
      Thanks!

      I am having difficulties getting updated results from GUICtrlCreateInput. I wrote a small script to demonstrate what I am trying to do.
      This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
      The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
      Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
      plumbing.
      The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
      figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

      I am working on a Video Player Test Script. I am reading a text file into a 3d array to be displayed in a GUI.
      Array Content:
      [x][0]FileName.mp4
      [x][1]UsageCount -> Up to a 4 digit number
      [x][2]EnableUsageCount (True/False)
      In the GUI the user can check the filename box, edit the number of usages and check EnableUsageCount to turn on the UsageCount control using the UsageCount number for the maximum number of plays.
      To make this easier to deal with I have removed the EnableUsageCount section, and am just concentrating on getting a method to put the edited (or unchanged) UsageCount in the array. Currently nothing is read into the array, due to my using the wrong method in the Case statement.
      Here are code snippets of what I am trying to do:
      ; Snippets from script ; I read the text file at the bottom and put the .mp4 filenames in $aManifest[x][0] and UsageCount in $aManifest[x][1] ; Then I create a GUI to display the .mp4 filenames with checkboxes and the UsageCount to the right. UsageCount is editable by the user. ; If the filename is checked, I want to read the filename into $aCheckedVideos[x][0] and the updated UsageCount in $aCheckedVideos[x][1] ; The GUICtrlRead($aVideoName[$i]) with Case $GUI_CHECKED & UNCHECKED works for the checkboxes ; This section puts the filenames in the GUI with a checkbox For $i = 0 to $iMMCount Step 1 $sMP4Text = $aManifest[$i][0] $iMP4Length = StringLen($sMP4Text) $aVideoName[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($sMP4Text,$iLeft, $iTop) $iTop += 30 Next ; This section reads numbers from the Manifest array, and I want to be able to change the number and have them saved. ; So the Case $GUI_CHECKED & UNCHECKED won't work here, and I can't figure out what I should be doing here. For $i = 0 to $iMMCount Step 1 $sUsageText = $aManifest[$i][1] $aUsageCount[$i] = GUICtrlCreateInput($sUsageText,$iLeft, $iTop, 50,18, $GUI_DOCKAUTO) GUICtrlSetPos($aUsageCount[$i],200) $iTop += 30 Next While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $idCloseGUI For $i = 0 To $iMMNewCount Step 1 Switch GUICtrlRead($aVideoName[$i]) Case $GUI_CHECKED $aCheckedVideos[$i][0] = $aManifest[$i][0] ; If checked, I put the results into a two D array Case $GUI_UNCHECKED ; where Video Name is $aCheckedVideos[x][0] EndSwitch Switch GUICtrlRead($aUsageCounter[$i]) Case $GUI_CHECKED $aCheckedVideos[$i][1] = $aUsageCount[$i] ;I want to put the text (numbers) in $aCheckedVideos[x][1] Case $GUI_UNCHECKED ;but what is returned is blank, probably due to EndSwitch ; $GUI_CHECKED being the wrong thing. Next ExitLoop EndSwitch WEnd ;The txt file I'm reading has the following: ;~ /** Title #1: Big Buck Bunny 1080p **/ ;~ "Name": "Big Buck Bunny", ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 9999, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s_enc1.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 45, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s_enc1.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 2, ;~ /** Title #2: Tears of Steel 4K **/ ;~ "Name": "Tears of Steel 4K", ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\tos_4K_60s_HEVC.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 9876, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\tos_4K_60s_HEVC_enc2.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 0, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\tos_4K_60s_HEVC_enc2.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 5, I am certain that the section
                          Switch GUICtrlRead($aUsageCounter[$i])
                              Case $GUI_CHECKED
                                  $aCheckedVideos[$i][1] = $aUsageCount[$i]    ;I want to put the text (numbers) in $aCheckedVideos[x][1]
                              Case $GUI_UNCHECKED                                ;but what is returned is blank, probably due to

      is wrong, and this is what I am looking for help with. Instead of $GUI_CHECKED what should I be looking for?
      The worst part of this is I had this working late last night, and then lost my changes and cannot for the life of me remember how I had this working.
      Help is truly appreciated!
