So I have been in and out of AutoIt for a few years now and I've never come across a situration where I'd need to verify if an a variable is an array or not.

So here's the deal - I have a database that contains 1 table with a few different columns. When a user initially opens the script, it will see if their "username" pulled from @UserName is stored in the database (which is always unique).

If their username is not in the database, it inserts a record (using EzMySql) including their username, full name (pulled from ->

_AD_Open()

Global $adFullName = _AD_GetObjectAttribute(@UserName, "DisplayName")

Global $uSName = @UserName

_AD_Close()

<-), Time Stamp, Accept Flag (0/1) and Deny Flag (0/1).

This is all irrelevant at this point but I just wanted you to understand what I am doing here.

Anyways, I am getting to the point to where I am storing specific values from the table into variables. EzMySql will store the data in an array (IF the query finds results) however if it does not, then the variable will not be an array.

The problem is, when I run my "If statements" - if I check the variable, there is no way for me to know if the results are stored in array format or not.

Here's an example, read the comment above $LookupUser.

Func _CheckDatabase()
; Obtain user's Full Name and store as variable.

If Not _EzMySql_Startup() Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error Starting MySql", "Error: "& @error & @CR & "Error string: " & _EzMySql_ErrMsg())
    Exit
EndIf

$Pass = "D@#!$dD(#d0939kd(#Dk3093d)(#D039039ddk39dkd"

If Not _EzMySql_Open("10.3.3.11", "rug_user", $Pass, "rug", "3306") Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error opening Database", "Error: "& @error & @CR & "Error string: " & _EzMySql_ErrMsg())
    Exit
EndIf

If Not _EzMYSql_Query("SELECT * FROM accept_list WHERE Username = '" & @UserName & "';") Then
MsgBox(0, "Query Error", "Error: "& @error & @CR & "Error string: " & _EzMySql_ErrMsg())
    Exit
EndIf

If Not _EzMySql_SelectDB("rug") Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error setting Database to use", "Error: "& @error & @CR & "Error string: " & _EzMySql_ErrMsg())
    Exit
EndIf

$LookupUser = _EzMySql_FetchData()


;This is the problem - if there is no data found, $LookupUser[1] for example will not work returning an error. This function currently works but I need more functionality.

If $LookupUser == 0 Then
$sMySqlStatement = "INSERT INTO accept_list (Username,FullName) VALUES (" & "'" & $uSName & "'," & "'" & $adFullName & "');"
    If Not _EzMySql_Exec($sMySqlStatement) Then
        MsgBox(0, "Error inserting data to Table", "Error: "& @error & @CR & "Error string: " & _EzMySql_ErrMsg())
    Exit
EndIf
ElseIf $LookupUser <> 0 Then
    _CheckFlags()
    ;Call function to verify if user has accepted or not.
EndIf
_EzMySql_Close()
_EzMySql_ShutDown()
Return
EndFunc

Did you check the IsArray() function?

If you learn from It, it's not a mistake

Did you check the IsArray() function?

And also UBound() will help verifying arrays size.

Thank you both - this solved my issue entirely! I tested it using the following and ensured that I had "
#include <Array.au3>
" included.:

If IsArray($LookupUser) Then
MsgBox(0, "Variable Array Check", "Your variable is an array - hurray!")
Else
MsgBox(0, "Variable Array Check", "Your variable is not an array - awww.")
EndIf

Thanks again guys!

#include <Array.au3>
is not needed to use function "IsArray". IsArray is part of AutoIt itself.

      hi,
      i have checkboxes and each checkbox that checked, i put in array. 
      now, im stuck on how to loop the checked array and store in in one variable. what i can do now, is only write the result into a text file. 
      below is the code:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> ;~ #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> Global $Count = 3 Global $CheckBoxP[$Count] Global $step[$Count] global $array1[1] Global $ExitResult $hGUI = GUICreate("Summary Steps", 500, 400) GUISetFont(12, 400, "Tahoma") GUICtrlCreateLabel( "Please Select the Summary Steps for Script Check", 70, 20) GUISetFont(10, 400, "Tahoma") Global $array_Pstep[3] = ["fix2","fix1","fix3"] global $step[3] = ["2","3","4"] $Spacing = 50 For $i = 0 To UBound($array_Pstep) - 1 $CheckBoxP[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($array_Pstep[$i], 80, $Spacing + (20 * $i), 65, 17) Next $submit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Submit",180, 280, 80, 30) $exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit",180, 320, 80, 30) GUISetState() While 1 $Msg = GUIGetMsg() Select case $Msg=$submit For $i = 0 To $Count - 1 If GUICtrlRead($CheckBoxP[$i]) = $GUI_CHECKED Then _ArrayAdd($array1, $step[$i]) EndIf Next Global $logfilerray = @WorkingDir & "\checkedlist.txt" FileDelete ($logfilerray) Global $readlogfile = FileOpen($logfilerray,1) for $a = 1 to UBound($array1) - 1 ;~ $var=$array1[$a] FileWriteLine($readlogfile,$array1[$a]) Next FileClose($readlogfile) Exit case $Msg=$exit $ExitResult = MsgBox(1,"Summary Step", "Continue to Exit ?") if $ExitResult = 1 Then ;ok Exit EndIf Exit EndSelect WEnd

      How do you perform a nested loop function with a multidimensional array from 2 lists.
      for i in list1
      (open file) extract variable
          while open for i in list 2
          (open file2) extract variable
       
      var1 + var2 = (search term)

      The list sizes will more than likely consist of different lengths.
       
      What is the best approach to accomplishing this method?

      Hello!

      I am working on a function that I am just getting lost on. The goal is a multiple nested loop.

      Here are the steps:
      Contents of file1.txt::
      [topic] var1=Name var2=OtherName var3=SomeotheName Contents of file2.txt::
      [subTopic] top=sub1 top2=sub2 top3=sub3 The Shell I am working from::
      #include <file.au3> $file = "c:\yourfile.txt" FileOpen($file, 0) For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file) $line = FileReadLine($file, $i) msgbox(0,'','the line ' & $i & ' is ' & $line) Next FileClose($file) Understanding however that the "msgbox" needs to then become a variable. in example the following::
      $file = "c:\yourfile.txt" FileOpen($file, 0) While true( prog.exe is running && "WinName" is open) do For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file) $line = FileReadLine($file, $i) ;Open File to log "current location of file 1" FileWriteLine ("filename", $i & ' is ' & $line) var = $line Next $file2 = "c:\yourfile.txt" FileOpen($file, 0) For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file) $line = FileReadLine($file, $i) ; OpenFile to log "Current location of file 2" FileWriteLine ("filename", $i & ' is ' & $line) Next FileClose($file2) FileClose($file) The goal in written form is the following ::

      While in "OpenWindow"
          read from file 1 starting at line 1 until end of file.
         file 1 is a list of names to be searched.
         With $line selected, add this element to the element in file 2.
       
      The search of a variables in list 1 and list 2 differ on the amount of posts that day. (This is not a web based platform, it is a game) I need to search 2 names and take a screenshot of the out put. The sizes of the names list depend on the activity of names at the time of search.
      This loop continues until all the names from both lists have been searched. Mostly in the format of::
      File1= item
      File2= Vendor
       
      Item + Vendor  ( Capture screen, scroll) -- Not sure how to detect if I need to scroll)
       
      Thank you for your help and support!

      Hi Virtual People,
      My array works perfectly fine. However, what is the best practice if the line in the array doesn't have the correct amount of columns and if I can add a placeholder?

       
      For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") Next

      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.
