Variable Verification

7 posts in this topic

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.

      So I have a loop that keeps reading data from an array and searching it for the same value. If the value is no there it does work then adds the value to the array to prevent it from doing the same work.
      If _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) = -1 Then Work.... _ArrayAdd($ID,$filearray[$i]) EndIf This is in a for loop hence $i
      So what is happening is the code works great for several hours. After a period of time _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) will result in -1 even if $ID = $filearray. So it ready as if there is no data in the array. Anyone have this problem? 
       
      Also I am just running in using F5 not compiling it and running it if that makes a difference.

      Is there any way it could be done?
      I tried a lot of ways but maybe somebody know's the right way?
      #AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6 -w 7 #include <File.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> Local $in=FileOpen("TEST_labels.idx1-ubyte",16) ; 16+0=Read binary Local $data = FileRead($in) Local $FileArray = BinaryToString($data,4) ;~ $FileArray = StringSplit($BinarydData, @CRLF, 1+2) ;~ Local $FileArray = StringRegExp($BinarydData, "[^\r\n]+", 3) FileClose($in) _ArrayDisplay($FileArray,"$FileArray","",32) MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "$FileArray = " & $FileArray )

      I am reading a CSV file which is tab seperated as below.
      Local $aArray = FileReadToArray($file) And now, I am splitting this main array record wise so that Array contains internally another arrow to represent each row.
      For $i = 0 to (UBound($aArray) - 1) ;MsgBox(0,"",$aArray[$i]) $aArray[$i] = StringSplit(StringStripCR($aArray[$i]), Chr(9),2);Chr(9) for tab ;_ArrayDisplay($aArray[$i]) Next Afther that, _ArrayDIsplay is able to see the individual internal arrays.
      _ArrayDisplay($aArray[1]) But If I try to access the individual element of it as below.It is not showing any result.
      MsgBox(0,"",$aArray[1][1]) Any suggestion, below is the sample csv file.

      Need some help understanding why the ConsoleWrite works inside 2nd For loop but not out side. Between Audit Wiki, Help file , Forum searching (lots of code reading), and YouTube ( shout out to TutsTeach), I have not been able to find the reason why. 
      $sIniPath = "installLog.ini" ; - Get section name $iniSctionNames = IniReadSectionNames($sIniPath) ; - Get Keys and Vaules For $a = 1 to UBound($iniSctionNames) - 1 $keys = IniReadSection($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[$a]) For $b = 1 to UBound($keys) - 1 $oldSysInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[1], $keys[$b][0], "") $PntIPInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[2], $keys[$b][0], "") $NewPCInfor = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[3], $keys[$b][0], "") ;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF) Next ;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF) Next ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo) My intention is to use the variables later for Listboxes. Any explanation, forum post links or whatever would help. Sorry also very very new to Autoit.
      Also here's the ini file.
