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.

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.

$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)

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)

      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)

      Given an array with multiple columns that is displayed in a listview,
       ===> What is the fastest/most efficient way to create and manage multiple filters and display results in ListView.
      I have a text file that loads into a listview that has string, numeric, and date columns.  The main file contains about 5100 rows. It's loaded into an array and (in this ListView) it's pre-filtered to display a range of rows based on a start and end date.  On the form I have menu options for various filters. (see below).
      I have options to filter on an "Air Date" column (=Today, >=Today, <=Today) and on a numeric field that is either 1 or 0 that indicate Active or Ended.

      For each filter option I have a prebuilt array that holds a subset of the main array based on a single filter.  For the list above I have the main Array and 5 additional arrays.  None of the arrays are updated since this is for "view only" purposes.  This is a short list and I could have done the filtering "live" but I have several of these forms and so kept the same functionality in each. I have another ListView that displays the complete 5100 row list with 3 filters that, when building the filters live was considerably slower than using prebuilt arrays.
      If I want to expand past simple single column filtering, using an array for each filter becomes cumbersome especially if I want to combine filters using AND & OR.
      The text file I'm working with has 16 columns. If I setup filters for 4 columns and include AND / OR capability that would require prebuilding 24 arrays to cover the various combinations.
      If using the slower method of building a filtered array in real time each time a different filter is selected is the only way to go with this then I'll live with it. It is less overhead. .
      Below is the code I'm currently using to "filter" an array.  My next change was going to add AND / OR functionality (see the info above the header for where I was going with this) .
      ; Description ...: Delete rows from an array and only keep rows that meet the crtieria of identified columns. ; ; Next Change: Add AND/OR to combine filters. Use array to hold multiple criteria and values? ; ; Local $aCriteria[][] = [["",$iColNbr1, $sOperator1, $vValue1], ["AND",$iColNbr2, $sOperator2, $vValue2], ["OR",$iColNbr3, $sOperator3, $vValue3]] ; The first set of criteria ["", $iColNbr1, $sOperator1, $vValue1] must start with a "". ; If anything is entered in that first parameter it will be ignored. ; If the first parameter in any additional criteria set is left blank, or it is not OR, it will default to AND. ; If $aArray is 1 dimension with more than one set of criteria, only the first set will be used. ; Any criteria that uses a column that is less than 0 or higher than the total number of columns in the array will return an error. ; ; Recognized data types for this function are: S (String), D (Date), N (Number). ; ; Recognized Operators are: "EQ", "NEQ", "IN", "GT", "GE", "LT", "LE", "BETWEEN". ; ****** Not all operators work with all data types. ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Name ..........: _ArrayFilter ; Description ...: Delete rows from an array and only keep rows that meet the crtieria of identified columns. ; Syntax ........: _ArrayFilter(Byref $aArray[, $iCol = 0[, $sOperator = "EQ"[, $vValue = ""[, $iOptionBase = 0]]]]) ; Parameters ....: $aArray - Array being filtered. ; $iCol - [optional] Column to filter.

      Hello,
      The last couple of day's I was searching on this forum for the best way to put array's inside array's.
      The best example's i found where a little outdatet (2010) whit a lot of pro's and con's.
      Now I've a big script where a lot of computations and big array's are involved, so speed is a big issue.
      Also I wanna try the script below but don't know iff speed is a problem this way or maybe there is a better way to do this.

      Does somebody know's the best way to put array's inside array's and get the data back from them?
      I've made an example of something I was thinking about.
      (maybe something totaly wrong but I'm open for sugestions)
      I'm doing it this way because I don't think I can access the data inside the array (and doing some calculations to it) some other way if the array is inside another array.
      Or is there?
      Thanks in advanced.
      #include <Array.au3> Global $aArray[Random(5,10,1)][Random(5,10,1)] Global $Holder[2][2] For $x = 0 To UBound($aArray,1) - 1 For $y = 0 To UBound($aArray,2) - 1 $aArray[$x][$y] = Round(Random(-1,1),4) Next Next $Holder[0][0] = $aArray $aArray = "" Global $get_array = $Holder[0][0] _ArrayDisplay($get_array)

      Hello,
      I'm trying to randomly change some cells in a array on a given percentage.
      at this point I 've a array whit all 0's and want to change some cells to 1.
      I'm not shure how to do this in a good coding sort of way.
      Also maybe there is a build in function whish I'm not aware of.
      Does somebody know how I can do this in a easy way?
      I was trying to get the total count of cells and get the percentage of it.
      And was stuck when i wanna change the cell.
      please advice, thanks in advanced for your help.
