chkdsk gui in WinPE array error

Recommended Posts

hackersarchangel

I have a project I'm working on, as part of a maintenance disk. I want to make a GUI for automating chkdsk startup, as in I run the GUI, then I select what drives I'm wanting to chkdsk. I want to run this from a PE based enviroment, I believe the disk I've chosen is a BartPE based disk, if that matters.

Here's where my issue comes into play. When I start the program I have it set to specify a log save location with a Save As box. That part works great, so I have it make the GUI. Here's the issue: When I'm making the GUI, I want it to grab the drive letters and use that as part of either Checkboxes OR multiple dropdown menus. That part I'm flexible on, I just want it to work, and the dropdown menus was just another way of thinking about it.

So I figured out how to grab drive letters into an array and do an If-Then for less than 4 drives (test machine has 3 drives, trying to get it work before worrying about whether or not it's less than 2 or 3):

Global $Drives[5] = ["1","2","3","4","5"]
$Drives = DriveGetDrive("Fixed")
If $Drives[0] < 4 Then
    $Drives[4] = "None"
EndIf

For some reason, when I run that code, it flips it's lid about being outside my subscript range. I added the ReDim command to resize it back to 5, but that still doesn't work. Now if I set it when I initialize it, it's fine, and I can edit it all I want to manually, just not with DriveGetDrive.

Current modified code:

Global $Drives[5] = ["1","2","3","4","5"]
$Drives = DriveGetDrive("Fixed")
If $Drives[0] < 4 Then
  ReDim $Drives[5]
    $Drives[4] = "None"
EndIf

What I would like to do is resize the Array to fix the amount of drives I have, i.e. if I have 2 drives, make it 3 slots big, [0] for the count it generates, [1] for drive 1, [2] for drive 2, etc. and if it doesn't get a reply from slots 3 and 4, disable those checkboxes/remove the entry from the dropdown list. But that is further complicating the issue as it is, just want the basic premise to work.

If anyone has any ideas for this little issue, I'm welcoming the ideas.

hackersarchangel,

No need to ReDim the array - the function returns a suitably sized array for you automatically, so there is no need to check its size: :oops:

Global $Drives = DriveGetDrive("Fixed")

Once you have the array, you can run a loop For $i = 1 To $Drives[0] to create your checkboxes/combo list. :bye:

Ok so I was doing it right, as far as grabbing the variable. So use a For-Next loop to make the boxes that way, so it doesn't complain about being outside of the subscript range?

Just making sure I'm understanding this correctly, and that would work.

hackersarchangel,

Using the count element means that you remain within the bounds automatically so you should not have that problem. :oops:

But you know where we are if you find something else not working. :bye:

That I do :oops: You guys have always been helpful :bye:

Ok I'll try this when I have a minute today, have some other things going on.

Request thread be closed, going to start a thread about the project in general asking if anyone wants to contribute to the project in an Open Source form.

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a way to take a number value from a Row2 of a 2D array and according to this check if files that appear in rows 3-11 in the array exists.
      For example, if the number in Row2 is 5 I need to check for the files in Row 3-6 only, if it is 6 than rows 3-7 and so on.
      I thought on using a FOR loop but I have very little experience with those.
      Can you suggest the best way to do what I need?
      BTW, the files in Rows 3-11 will usually have blank value for any row above the number in Row2 (e.g. Row2 = 5 so Rows3-6 will have values but 8-11 be empty), The values I need are in Column 1 of the array, the name of the key from the INI file that the array was created from is in Column 0.
      Full Example:
      Row2 of Array:
      Col0 = Games# - Col1 = 5
      Rows3-6
      Col0 = Exe2 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe3 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe4 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe5 - Col1 = Path To File
      I need that if Row2 is 5 to check these above for rows if the file exists, if it was 6 then the next row as well and so on up until number 10 in Row2 as it can't go above 10.
      So basically for whatever number in Row2 from 2-10 need to check 1-9 rows from 3-11 to see if the files in Col1 exists and if any of them don't exist it should call a function that shows an error message.
      I'm pretty sure I have the first line of the for look correct:
      For $i = 1 To $aAIO[2][1] Just not sure how to continue from there, also not sure if $i should be equal 1 or 2.
      Help will be appreciated.

      Hello,
      I'm trying to get data from twitter to an array and so far I found an Twitter UDF whish lookes very intresting but couldn't get it to work.
      It lookes not supported any more(2010) and buggy when i read all te replies.
      More around this subject (autoit and twitter) i couldn't find on this forum.
      Is there sombody who know's a good way to get live data from twitter to an array inside autoit?
      (I kinda doubt that this isn't tackled before)
      In the end I was hoping to get all tweets from date to date from an specific subject inside a 2D array to work whit.

      I got a question:  i am trying to run different functions based upon what i select in these radio buttons.(code below)
      it needs to check server 1. then run function 1 or function 2 after what i selected in the checkbox.
      once that function is done it moves to the next one, until it has been trough all 5 
       
      iv'e tried using while loops with different while $i equals to something but then i manualy need to go in and edit the script every time.

      Hi everyone, 
      I'm currently writing a script that allow me to list all currently installed software on a computer but some of the are listed in the HKLM64 hive of the registry whereas 95% of all others are in the HKLM "normal" one.
      Thing is, I'd like to combine these two reg key into one single ListView item.
      Here's my code so far, knowing that it's working on both cases (changing to HKLM64 or HKLM short)
      Thanks in advance for the help

      Hi everyone, I'm at best a noobie.  I have read through the Array helps, and specifically the 2D array help file, and I'm struggling to get my code working.
      I have an array that is read from a file, thats working great.  I'm trying to do some math on the array, so I can find the largest, average, lowest, day over day change %, etc.
      The array read working fine, I get 43 lines, line 0 is 44, and then I get data that looks like
      0519 $10,000
      0520 $10,001
      0521 $10,002
      The data in this array is a single 1D array, breaking it out into 2 columns so I can do the math is what I can get to happen.  
      How do I reference the array to store this data?  Second, how do I assign this data to the appropriate row/column?
      Thanks in advance.
      Dim $all_cash_amounts[UBound($aInput)][2] Dim $max_amount_in_account Dim $min_amount_in_account _FileReadToArray($LC_Check_file_path, $aInput) _ArrayDisplay($aInput) local $date = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1) local $cash = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "\d+\s(-?[0-9\.\,]+)", 1) ConsoleWrite("Date is: " & $date & @CRLF) For $i = 1 To UBound($aInput)-1     $date = StringRegExp($aInput[$i], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1)     $all_cash_amounts[$i][2] = $date[$i][0], $cash[$i][1]      Next _ArrayDisplay($all_cash_amounts)
