_FileListToArray problem

Recommended Posts


Hi, I am David Biro, from Hungary.

I'm written a script:

#include <file.au3>
#include <array.au3>

Local $main_cats = _FileListToArray("system_cats/")
for $main_cat in $main_cats
   Local $cats = _FileListToArray("system_cats/" & $main_cat & "/")
   for $cat in $cats
     Local $programs = _FileListToArray("system_cats/" & $main_cat & "/" & $cat & "/")
     for $program in $programs

And I got an error:

for $program in $programs

for $program in $programs^ ERROR

I think the code is correct.

It's bug?

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

The is no bug. ;)

You are asking _FileListToArray to return both files and folders - that is its default setting. So you might well then be asking the function to look for files and folders inside files - which means you do not get a array returned and so AutoIt announces an error. Try getting the function to return only folders - or check if the return is a folder - before getting it to look for files in the inner loop. :)

And in any case you need some errorchecking to cater for the event that the function does not return an array - and that the element is a valid path because the UDF returns a count in the [0] element. ;)

Personally I would go for the other type of For and just loop through the arrays that way. ;)
