Script to write array to INI and read INI to array

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

A simple script to save an Array in ini file and load one or more sectionkey's ini file to array.

IniToArray.au3

 

Read this, >FRED is script to code (string, number, array, Scripting.Dictionary) into string.

This string can be save in file, and read/load again, rebuild the structure's data with your values.

Nice idea, but you should include some error checking in it. Check to see if they passed an array, check to see that the array is only a 1 or 2D array, for example.

BrewManNH thanks for you replay, already exist a way to check is an array is 1D or 2D, its present in _arrayToIni, the first [switch Ubound($aName,2)], this is correct way to check this or exist a better option to this?

About error cheking is a very good idea, but I dont have none idea at this moment, will try later.

Best regards.

You aren't checking for an incoming array at all. You need to use IsArray() to check to see if it's an array.

Your Ubound statement is also looking at the wrong thing. You need to use Ubound($array, 0) to find out how many dimensions it has, Using Ubound($array,2) is only checking the second dimension to see how many "columns" the array has, if any dimension 2 exists that is.

I find that the use IsArray() is not necessary in AutoIt since we now have UBound() which can also do the job of checking if a variable is a valid array. Since we are usually using UBound() to check this size of the array before processing it, it seems superfluous to be to also check it with IsArray().

Example:

Global $array1[2] = ["one","two"]
Global $array2[2][3] = [["one","A","B"],["two","C","D"]]
Global $array3 = 0
$Result = Ubound($array1,0)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $Result = ' & $Result & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
$Result = Ubound($array1,1)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $Result = ' & $Result & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
$Result = Ubound($array1,2)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $Result = ' & $Result & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console

$Result = Ubound($array2,0)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $Result = ' & $Result & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
$Result = Ubound($array2,1)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $Result = ' & $Result & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
$Result = Ubound($array2,2)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $Result = ' & $Result & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console

$Result = Ubound($array3,0)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $Result = ' & $Result & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
$Result = Ubound($array3,1)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $Result = ' & $Result & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
$Result = Ubound($array3,2)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $Result = ' & $Result & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console

For $i = 0 To UBound($array1) - 1
For $J = 0 To UBound($array1,2) - 1
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $array1[$i][$j] = ' & $array1[$i][$j] & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
Next
Next
For $i = 0 To UBound($array2) - 1
For $J = 0 To UBound($array2,2) - 1
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $array2[$i][$j] = ' & $array2[$i][$j] & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
Next
Next
For $i = 0 To UBound($array3) - 1
For $J = 0 To UBound($array3,2) - 1
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $array3[$i][$j] = ' & $array3[$i][$j] & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
Next
Next

Still, there's no check to see if the result of Ubound is returning any valid results in the script. Whether you use Ubound or IsArray, you still need to check for an array being sent to the function. Either way will work, the script just needs to do it. :)
