Problem placing Array from FileListToArray in another array to put in ListView

Recommended Posts

I am attempting to build a list from a series of directories under the ScriptPath of standalone system monitor applications that have also been built in AutoIt

The goal is to get the list of directories that Start with "Monitor-", then place them in an array, then when refreshing the status ListView, I will also be checking a text file for each one to get its current status, but for now that is just being filled in with "PAUSED".

I can get the correct directories, but when I try to loop through it to put in the list view I get this error:

J:ProjectsSysMonMonStatus.au3 (39) : ==> Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.:

$aItems[$i][0] = $MonitorList[$b][0]

$aItems[$i][0] = ^ ERROR

Any ideas from all of you AutoIt Wizards?

Global $MonitorListView
GUICreate("Monitor Status Check", 400, 300)
$MonitorListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 2, 2, 394, 268)
; Add columns
_GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($MonitorListView, "Monitor Name", 100)
_GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($MonitorListView, "Status", 100)

Func GetMonitors()
Local $MonitorList = _FileListToArray(@ScriptDir, "Monitor-*", 2)
    If @error = 1 Then
        MsgBox(4096, "", "Path was invalid.")
    If @error = 4 Then
        MsgBox(4096, "", "No Monitors were found.")
    ; Display the results returned by _FileListToArray.
    ;_ArrayDisplay($MonitorList, "$MonitorList")
    Return $MonitorList

Func RefreshMonitorList()
$MonitorList = GetMonitors()
Local $aItems[5000][2]
For $i = 0 To UBound($MonitorList) - 1
        $b = $i + 1
        $aItems[$i][0] = $MonitorList[$b][0]
    $aItems[$i][1] = "PAUSED"
    _GUICtrlListView_AddArray($MonitorListView, $aItems)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

_FileListToArray only returns a 1D array - you are using 2D syntax to access it. Plus you are going too far into the array - see below. ;)

This should work:

Local $aItems[UBound($MonitorList) - 1][2]           ; Why 5000 when you know how big it needs to be?
For $i = 0 To UBound($MonitorList) - 2               ; Otherwise $i + 1 will fail as it is outside the bounds
    $aItems[$i][0] = $MonitorList[$i + 1]            ; Use 1D syntax here
    $aItems[$i][1] = "PAUSED"
All clear? :)
