_ArrayDisplay wont work??? Help

5 posts in this topic

Why in the world wont this work. The _ArrayDisplay. It dosent seem to work when I use a variable - in this case - $foldername.

I am looping the elements in the array "$items" to process the items WITHIN those names.

The loop works if I hardcode each element of $items in the for/next loop. But not when I loop through the elements of $items and call them and assign to $foldername.

The messagebox HAS the correct information.

Help please? Thanks in advance.

I feel stupid.

Global $cRootShareDirs[1] = ["DFSRoot"]
Global $fRootShareDirs[2] = ["SCCM","SMSPKGSIG"]
Global $gRootShareDirs[6] = ["Openshare","QuotaReports","Temporary","COR-CC-Media","USMT", $SiteCode & "_Sensitive1"]
Global $rRootShareDirs[1] = ["ORbackup"]
Global $OpenShareDirs[5] = ["Applications","GlobalShare","InfoShare","Personal","Teams"]
Global $QuotaReportsDirs[3] = ["OnDemand","Scheduled","Incident"]
Global $ORbackupDirs[3] = ["FSRM_Backup","Printer_Backup","DHCP_Backup"]

Global $Items[7] =
["$cRootShareDirs","$fRootShareDirs","$gRootShareDirs","$rRootShareDirs","$OpenShareDirs","$QuotaReportsDirs","$ORbackupDirs"]


$UpperLimit1 = UBound($Items,1) -1
For $LineNumber = 0 To $UpperLimit1
     $FolderName = $Items[$LineNumber]
     MsgBox(0,"debug", "Element = " & $LineNumber & " is " & $FolderName)

     _ArrayDisplay ( $FolderName )
Next

I'm thinking the name of the function might be an indicator to you why this won't work. You're trying to send _ArrayDisplay a string and expecting it to display it?


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Yeah, good call.

But that string IS the name of an array.

Should I be doing this some other way?

Thanks - by the way.

Try it this way:

#include <_Array.au3>
Global $SiteCode = 1 ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<  just added to remove the error message when running it
Global $cRootShareDirs[1] = ["DFSRoot"]
Global $fRootShareDirs[2] = ["SCCM","SMSPKGSIG"]
Global $gRootShareDirs[6] = ["Openshare","QuotaReports","Temporary","COR-CC-Media","USMT", $SiteCode & "_Sensitive1"]
Global $rRootShareDirs[1] = ["ORbackup"]
Global $OpenShareDirs[5] = ["Applications","GlobalShare","InfoShare","Personal","Teams"]
Global $QuotaReportsDirs[3] = ["OnDemand","Scheduled","Incident"]
Global $ORbackupDirs[3] = ["FSRM_Backup","Printer_Backup","DHCP_Backup"]
Global $Items[7] =[$cRootShareDirs,$fRootShareDirs,$gRootShareDirs,$rRootShareDirs,$OpenShareDirs,$QuotaReportsDirs,$ORbackupDirs] ; <<<<<<<<< no quotes

$UpperLimit1 = UBound($Items,1) -1
For $LineNumber = 0 To $UpperLimit1
     $FolderName = $Items[$LineNumber]
     MsgBox(0,"debug", "Element = " & $LineNumber & " is " & $FolderName)
     _ArrayDisplay ( $FolderName )
Next
