stringsplit ignore line if nothing to split?

Recommended Posts

hey guys,

I'm using stringsplit to parse a log file, and I've run into a slight issue. if the delimiter does not exist in one of the lines, the program crashes when it reaches that line. is there a way for the stringsplit to leave the line alone if it doesn't find the delimiter.


snippet code:

_FileReadToArray($logdir, $aLog)
for $i = 1 to $aLog[0]
$aLog_WS = StringStripWS($aLog[$i], 8)
$aRu_Split = StringSplit ($aLog_WS, "]")
; _ArrayDisplay($aRu_Split)
GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, "[" & @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC & "] " & "in statement" &@CRLF, 1)
If StringInStr($aRu_Split[2],"вв") Then ;$aRU_split [2] = "вв" doesnt work for some reason
GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, "[" & @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC & "] " & "found, restarting" &@CRLF, 1)
$found = 1
GUICtrlSetData($num, $wincount)

No, there isn't. But what you can do is check to see what StringSplit returns before acting upon the returned value. Use error checking to see if the string was split at all before trying to access the array. Check the help file to see what StringSplit returns when it doesn't find the delimiter to split on, and add that check to your script.

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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
