Read String into Array and Swap

Recommended Posts

dreamzboy

Hi All,

Sorry for raising this noobie thread but I can't seem to find a function that can read a string and break it up into an Array. I hope it's easy to do. I can do this in C but Autoit is a little different. Here's an example of what I would like to do, have an input box (GuiCtrlCreateEdit) where user can paste the information into it and my program will swap the information to have the output below with a click of a button:

User Input:

134.567.890.123 Hostname1 #Some comment on the Hostname

094.123.344.333 Hostname2 #Another comment on the Hostname.

.

.

To be specific:

Array[0,0] = 134.567.890.123 Array[0,1] = Hostname 1

Array[1,0] = 094.123.344.333 Array[1,1] = Hostname 2

What I would like to see in the output:

Hostname1 134.567.890.123

Hostname2 094.123.344.333

.

.

.

One method that I was going to use is StringisSpace, but that function only detects spaces. If there are any characters within it, it does not work. How will I go about making this work? I know I'll have to use the "_Arrayswap" function within the library but will it work given that I have 2 dimensions array?

Thanks in advance guys! It's been awhile since I did any programming.

Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped using ladies scented body wash and switched to Old Spice, he could smell like he’s me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on a boat with the man your man could smell like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love. Look again, the tickets are now diamonds. Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady. I’m on a horse.”

Another skinned cat. It may be a faster script without messing with arrays.

$sSampleText="134.567.890.123 Hostname1 #Some comment on the Hostname"

$sSampleText=StringRegExpReplace($sSampleText , '(.*?)h+(.*?)h+(#.*)v?' , '$2 $1 $3' , 0)
MsgBox(0,"gar",$sSampleText)

It's sometime space and sometime tab.

MsgBox(0,"gar",$sSampleText)

This will not work because I'm going use GuiCtrlCreateEdit and have user input those information. It could ranges from 1 line to 100 lines. The program would need to read the user input and then convert it to the output suggested above.

Here is another example with multiple lines with some built in pattern detection. Notice the string after @crlf is relatively backwards.

$sSampleText="134.567.890.123 Hostname1 #Some comment on the Hostname"&@CRLF&"Hostname2 094.123.344.333 #Another comment on the Hostname."

$sSampleText=StringRegExpReplace($sSampleText , '([0-9]{1,3}[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3})h+(.*?)h+(#.*)v?' , '$2 $1 $3' )
$sSampleText=StringStripWS($sSampleText,4)
MsgBox(0,"gar",$sSampleText)

Thanks for the useful tip. It's just unfortunate that your code is not flexible. Quite honestly, I'm looking for a function to detect a "space or tab" between the string, from there I'll know how to break it up into arrays to make the code easier to manage. I'll hate to do all this in a C console while Autoit has such a nice GUI to it.

Any additional help is much appreciated.

You can grill and season it...

#include <Array.au3>
Local $asInput[2], $asOutput[2][2]
$asInput[0] = "192.168.0.1" & @TAB & "hostname 1" & @TAB & "#some comment about hostname 1"
$asInput[1] = "192.168.0.2 hostname 2 #some comment about hostname 2"
For $string in $asInput
    _Output($asOutput, $string)
    If @error Then msgbox(64 + 262144, @ScriptName, "Failed to parse '" & $string & "'. Was not TAB or SPACE delimited.")
    _ArrayDisplay($asOutput) ; Check Output
Next

Func _Output(ByRef $asOutput, $sString)
    Static $x = 0 ; hehe... static-x
    $asSplit = StringSplit($sString, "#")
    If Not @error Then $sString = $asSplit[1]
    If StringInStr($sString, @TAB) Then
        $asSplit = 0
        $asSplit = StringSplit($sString, @TAB)
        $asOutput[$x][0] = $asSplit[2]
        $asOutput[$x][1] = $asSplit[1]
        $x+=1
        Return SetError(0,0,True)
    Else
        $iSpace = StringInStr($sString, " ")
        If Not @error Then
            $asOutput[$x][0] = StringRight($sString, StringLen($sString) - $iSpace)
            $asOutput[$x][1] = StringLeft($sString, $iSpace - 1)
            Return SetError(0,0,False)
        Else
            Return SetError(1,0,False)
        EndIf
    EndIf
    Return SetError(1,0,False)
EndFunc

Here another version:

#include <Array.au3>
$sIP = "134.567.890.123    Hostname1       #Some comment on the Hostname" & @CRLF & _
            "094.123.344.333       Hostname2       #Another comment on the Hostname" & @CRLF & _
            "123.222.111.10        Hostname3       #3rd entry"

$aResult = TransformInput($sIP)
If Not @error Then _ArrayDisplay($aResult)

Func TransformInput($sText)
    If Not IsString($sText) Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    If $sText = "" Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)
    Local $aSplit = StringRegExp($sText, "(?m)s*(d{1,3}.d{1,3}.d{1,3}.d{1,3})s*(w+)s*", 3)
    If @error Then Return SetError(3, 0, 0)
    Local Const $iUB = UBound($aSplit)
    Local $a2D[Floor($iUB / 2)][2], $i, $j = 0
    While $i < $iUB
        Switch BitAND($i, 1)
            Case 1
                $a2D[$j][0] = $aSplit[$i]
                $j += 1
            Case 0
                $a2D[$j][1] = $aSplit[$i]
        EndSwitch
    $i += 1
    WEnd
    Return $a2D
EndFunc

      hi all,
      reviewing the forum, this thread is applicable: 
       
       
      I wanted to know if there is now a better way to do this?
      In essence, I load a tab delimited txt file into an array (works well). I used tab, as some fields in the original csv contains commas.
      However, I needed autoit to manipulate this array, and output it as a csv.
      IF my array contains items with a comma, without double quotes around the field, then how best do I get a csv out of this?
      My current workaround is to filewritefromarray tab delimited, then open it in excel and save as a csv. I will need to check this to see how the address fields behave that contain a comma.
       
      Any thoughts would be appreciated.

      Hi All,

      I would like to know how you would take a FileLineRead and insert it into an array which then inserts it into Excel?
      One thing to know is the files content is broken up, so I only use half of the content within $FileRead1.
      So its imperative that the $value1, $value2, etc variables be used. 
      Code below:
      $FileRead1 = FileReadLine("C:\temp\sample.txt",1) For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] $value4 = $input[4] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value4, "D1") Next

      Hello,
      I'm trying to write a script that moves copies excel cells into an array. I'll than manipulate the values and send array into another program. 
      I don't want range to be specific to a workbook, or sheet, or set of cells.
      I want user to be able to highlight desired cells and to copy either normally ("Ctrl+C") or by a hotkey ("Alt+C"). 
      Could someone help me with this?
      Thank you,
      I've tried to write the framework: (edited)
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> HotKeySet("!v", "Pastedata") While True Sleep(1000) WEnd func Makearray() local $bArray ;User has cells already copied ;Convert clipboard into an array ;I don;t know how excel stores data to clipboard so don;t know how to bring it into array _Arraydisplay($bArray) MsgBox(0,0,$bArray) return $bArray endfunc func Pastedata() Local $aArray MsgBox(0,0,"wait",1) ;make array based on assumption user has already copied a range to clipboard $aArray = Makearray() ;paste code ;don;t worry about this I got the rest endfunc

      I got that func
      Func makeHelpImgGUI($title,$width,$height,$img) $img = GUICtrlCreatePic("",20,40,$width,$height) _ResourceSetImageToCtrl($img, "HERE") EndFunc and I call this func like that
      makeHelpImgGUI("Image",1190, 800,$SETTINGS_JPG)  
      so what is the problem in the parameter where is - "HERE" I need value of img but passed as string
      so $img = $SETTINGS_JPG and how make it "SETTINGS_JPG"
       
      I tried something like that but not work
      Func makeHelpImgGUI($title,$width,$height,$img) $name_str = String($img) $name_str = StringTrimLeft ($name_str, 1 ) $img = GUICtrlCreatePic("",20,40,$width,$height) _ResourceSetImageToCtrl($img, $name_str) EndFunc

      I want to make a while loop, that creates variables based on a array. For thist I created the array $iDsO with the number and the name of folders in an other folder. Every folder has a different name an I want to create variables(arrays) for each folder that show me all the files in that folder. For example: I have the Folder \Folder1. In it there are the Folders \1, \2, \3. In 1, 2 and 3 there are some files(.png). The array for Folder1 is $iDsO and now I want to crate the arrays $iDsO1, $iDsO2 and $iDsO3 with the files in them can I make something like this:
      While $iDs > 0 ;$iDs is the number of files in Folder1>> $iDsO[0] $iDs#here should come the Foldername for example '1'# = _FileListtoArray(@ProgramFilesDir&"\Folder1\"&$iDsO[$iDs]) $iDs = $iDs - 1 Wend So that in the End I have three variabels ($iDs1, $iDs2 and $iDs3)
       
      Is this posible or if not what could I do instead ( I don´t know the number of folders in Folder1 in the begining).
