Write function to an array at a specific index

9 posts in this topic

I have a function that returns a 1 dimensional array.  Is there a way, when writing the array, to specify at what array index the data begins?  For example, my function returns 5 values.  When it writes the data to the array, it will populate array slots 0-4.  Is there a way to tell the function to populate slots 6-10 instead?  I have an array that will hold data passed from a function run more than once.  I want to have the function append data to the array instead of overwrite.

ReDim might be what you are looking for.

cag8f,

The best plan would be to declare an initial array of the maximum size possible. Then when you get the array returned from the function, you can loop through it and assign the data to the required elements of the initial array. :)

_ArrayAdd could be the way to go.

#include <Array.au3>

Actually hold on--wouldn't _ArrayConcatenate() (within <Array.au3>) work for me?

cag8f,

There are many options - but unless you give us a bit more detail (like some examples of what it is you are actually trying to do) it is very difficult to give a definitive answer. ;)

OK sorry, was thinking out loud.  I have an existing array that I want to keep appending with data, via a function that returns arrays.  I could use that function to return a dummy array, then use _ArrayConcatenate to add it onto the original array, so the original array continues to be appended with new data.  Thanks!

cag8f,

In that case, _ArrayConcatenate seems the best solution. :)
