Help With _ArraySearch

Recommended Posts

mrflibblehat

Hi All,

I have an array as such

1
2
3
4 <--- _ArraySearch is returning the index of this
5
6
7
8
9
1
2
3
4 <--- I am actually looking for this
5
6
7
8
9

When looking for the number 4 using _ArraySearch It will find it at position 3 and give me the index, I am however looking for the index of the second 4 in the sequence.

The numbers can be random so it wont always be in that position but basically I am looking for the last 4 in the text file and not the first 4 in the text file.

If anyone has any other ideas how I can do this it would be greatly appreciated

$iStart [optional] Index of array to start searching at $iEnd

[optional] Index of array to stop searching at

Set iStart to the last element and iEnd to the first element?

Or use this:

$iForward [optional] If set to 0, searches the array from end to beginning (instead of beginning to end)

Tried that which resulted in error 4

4 - $iStart is greater than $iEnd

Thanks for the suggestion though.

Fixed it now though, my bad, should have done some more reading.

You could also look at _ArrayFindAll instead, as that will return an array of all matches found, you could then look at the UBound -1 value of the returned array to find the last item.


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.
