_ArraySearch not working?

Recommended Posts

nitekram

I have been messing around with this function for some time, and it is always a hit or miss for me. I hope that this has not already been discussed, but why does it not find certain characters.

 

Any ideas on how to make this right?

EDIT shoot, I have to add the other part...sorry

#include<array.au3>

Global $aArray1[3] = ['.', '?', '244<-->junk/[64599<-->64599]']
Global $aArray2[3] = ['.', '?', '<-->']

If _ArraySearch($aArray1, '<-->') = -1 Then
    MsgBox('', 'array 1', 'why am I in here?')
Else
    MsgBox('', 'array 1', 'PASS')
EndIf

If _ArraySearch($aArray2, '<-->') = -1 Then
    MsgBox('', 'array 2', 'why am I in here?')
Else
    MsgBox('', 'array 2', 'PASS')
EndIf

Look the $iCompare Flag

 

Look this mod...:

#include<array.au3>

Global $aArray1[3] = ['.', '?', '244<-->junk/[64599<-->64599]']
Global $aArray2[3] = ['.', '?', '<-->']

If _ArraySearch($aArray1, '<-->',0,0,0,1) = -1 Then
    MsgBox('', 'array 1', 'why am I in here?')
Else
    MsgBox('', 'array 1', 'PASS')
EndIf


If _ArraySearch($aArray2, '<-->') = -1 Then
    MsgBox('', 'array 2', 'why am I in here?')
Else
    MsgBox('', 'array 2', 'PASS')
    endif

Saludos

nitekram,

The match is not made in the first array because there is not a complete element which matches the string - but if you use the "partial search" parameter it is found as a substring:

#include<array.au3>

Global $aArray1[3] = ['.', '?', '244<-->junk/[64599<-->64599]']
Global $aArray2[3] = ['.', '?', '<-->']

If _ArraySearch($aArray1, '<-->') = -1 Then
    MsgBox('', 'array 1', 'Not found')
Else
    MsgBox('', 'array 1', 'Found')
EndIf

If _ArraySearch($aArray2, '<-->') = -1 Then
    MsgBox('', 'array 2', 'Not found')
Else
    MsgBox('', 'array 2', 'Found')
EndIf

If _ArraySearch($aArray1, '<-->', 0, 0, 0, 1) = -1 Then ; Do a search for a partial match
    MsgBox('', 'array 1', 'Not found')
Else
    MsgBox('', 'array 1', 'Found')
EndIf
Or have I misunderstood the question? :)

Okay, now that I have confused myself on what it is that I exactly want...

If the item contains the '<-->' then the value should be -1, as per help file.  If the value '<-->' is found, I want skip the code and go to the next code.

So my code should read

If _ArraySearch($array, '<-->', 0, 0, 0, 1) = -1 Then

;continue code

Else

;skipped code

EndIf

So is the above code correct in what I want to do?

EDIT - added in the compare flag

nitekram,

That makes even less sense than the first post. :wacko:

If you want to see if the element contains the string "<->" then you need to use the "partial search" parameter as explained above. In that case the return will be -1 if the string is not found and 0+ if it is. So I think your code would need to be:

If _ArraySearch($array, '<-->', 0, 0, 0, 1) = -1 Then
   ; Not found so - code
Else
   ; Found so - continue
EndIf
But I am not entirely sure I have your desired outcome correct. :D

I got it, I had to revisit my array in my script. You are correct, I have to use the "partial search" parameter. My problem was that I was not using the partial search, as well as not checking the whole string to begin with. I have found my error, and have fixed it on my side.

Everyone was a big help, as my mind was going ape over this.

p.s. Sorry for all the confusion...That is what happens when you are not sure of your input, nor your output.

Sometimes a glance into the include to see how the function is built may be of great help :)
