_array.... function in BETA - script breaking changes

Recommended Posts

mLipok

I started to study changes in the BETA version and more specifically in the functions contained in the Array.au3 .
Thus, some entries in the Track ;)

But seriously, Continuing this thread , initially looked HelpFile version 3.3.10.2 and 3.3.11.5 .
I did a comparison.
I have some of my own conclusions , and now I ask for their verification.

Conclusion # 1 :
In fact, the importance of the parameters for one-dimensional arrays EDIT:can not be changed .

Conclusion # 2:
For some functions have changed Return Values ​​I am thinking of a change in the meaning of @ error

Conclusion # 3:
For some functions, supplemented functionality with support for two-dimensional arrays .

Conclusion # 4:
Added quite a few new functions .

 

QUESTIONS:

Taking this into account the only real changes are relevant to the meaning of " SCRIPT BREAKING CHANGES " is only Conclusion # 2 ?

Am I right or missed something ?

 

btw .
Aside from the fact that such a short summarized it changes , I appreciate the effort that has been brought in to make these changes.

Conclusion #5:

based on _ArrayUnique () I noticed that some functions changed the way of references to arrays,

old example

_ArrayUnique ( $aArray .......

new example

_ArrayUnique ( Const ByRef $aArray .....

I understand this is about so much importance that it reduces memory usage and speeds up the execution of a function.

Are there are any other effects of this change?

      Hi everyone, I'm at best a noobie.  I have read through the Array helps, and specifically the 2D array help file, and I'm struggling to get my code working.
      I have an array that is read from a file, thats working great.  I'm trying to do some math on the array, so I can find the largest, average, lowest, day over day change %, etc.
      The array read working fine, I get 43 lines, line 0 is 44, and then I get data that looks like
      0519 $10,000
      0520 $10,001
      0521 $10,002
      The data in this array is a single 1D array, breaking it out into 2 columns so I can do the math is what I can get to happen.  
      How do I reference the array to store this data?  Second, how do I assign this data to the appropriate row/column?
      Thanks in advance.
      Dim $all_cash_amounts[UBound($aInput)][2] Dim $max_amount_in_account Dim $min_amount_in_account _FileReadToArray($LC_Check_file_path, $aInput) _ArrayDisplay($aInput) local $date = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1) local $cash = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "\d+\s(-?[0-9\.\,]+)", 1) ConsoleWrite("Date is: " & $date & @CRLF) For $i = 1 To UBound($aInput)-1     $date = StringRegExp($aInput[$i], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1)     $all_cash_amounts[$i][2] = $date[$i][0], $cash[$i][1]      Next _ArrayDisplay($all_cash_amounts)

      Given an array with multiple columns that is displayed in a listview,
       ===> What is the fastest/most efficient way to create and manage multiple filters and display results in ListView.
      I have a text file that loads into a listview that has string, numeric, and date columns.  The main file contains about 5100 rows. It's loaded into an array and (in this ListView) it's pre-filtered to display a range of rows based on a start and end date.  On the form I have menu options for various filters. (see below).
      I have options to filter on an "Air Date" column (=Today, >=Today, <=Today) and on a numeric field that is either 1 or 0 that indicate Active or Ended.

      For each filter option I have a prebuilt array that holds a subset of the main array based on a single filter.  For the list above I have the main Array and 5 additional arrays.  None of the arrays are updated since this is for "view only" purposes.  This is a short list and I could have done the filtering "live" but I have several of these forms and so kept the same functionality in each. I have another ListView that displays the complete 5100 row list with 3 filters that, when building the filters live was considerably slower than using prebuilt arrays.
      If I want to expand past simple single column filtering, using an array for each filter becomes cumbersome especially if I want to combine filters using AND & OR.
      The text file I'm working with has 16 columns. If I setup filters for 4 columns and include AND / OR capability that would require prebuilding 24 arrays to cover the various combinations.
      If using the slower method of building a filtered array in real time each time a different filter is selected is the only way to go with this then I'll live with it. It is less overhead. .
      Below is the code I'm currently using to "filter" an array.  My next change was going to add AND / OR functionality (see the info above the header for where I was going with this) .
      ; Description ...: Delete rows from an array and only keep rows that meet the crtieria of identified columns. ; ; Next Change: Add AND/OR to combine filters. Use array to hold multiple criteria and values? ; ; Local $aCriteria[][] = [["",$iColNbr1, $sOperator1, $vValue1], ["AND",$iColNbr2, $sOperator2, $vValue2], ["OR",$iColNbr3, $sOperator3, $vValue3]] ; The first set of criteria ["", $iColNbr1, $sOperator1, $vValue1] must start with a "". ; If anything is entered in that first parameter it will be ignored. ; If the first parameter in any additional criteria set is left blank, or it is not OR, it will default to AND. ; If $aArray is 1 dimension with more than one set of criteria, only the first set will be used. ; Any criteria that uses a column that is less than 0 or higher than the total number of columns in the array will return an error. ; ; Recognized data types for this function are: S (String), D (Date), N (Number). ; ; Recognized Operators are: "EQ", "NEQ", "IN", "GT", "GE", "LT", "LE", "BETWEEN". ; ****** Not all operators work with all data types. ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Name ..........: _ArrayFilter ; Description ...: Delete rows from an array and only keep rows that meet the crtieria of identified columns. ; Syntax ........: _ArrayFilter(Byref $aArray[, $iCol = 0[, $sOperator = "EQ"[, $vValue = ""[, $iOptionBase = 0]]]]) ; Parameters ....: $aArray - Array being filtered. ; $iCol - [optional] Column to filter.

      Hello. I have a 1D array. Is made in this way:
      1. This is a line Messages: a message etc Context: a context etc 2. This is a line Messages: a message etc Context: a context etc 3. This is a line Messages: a message etc Correction: a correction etc Context: a context etc I need to make something like:
      1. This is a line|Messages: a message etc|Context: a context etc 2. This is a line|Messages: a message etc|Context: a context etc 3. This is a line|Messages: a message etc|Correction: a correction|Context: a context etc For exporting in another software. I need to split every time there is a number when the line start, can be 1. until something like 3.976. Since i don't know if there a 2 line after a number or 3 i have opened this thread. Thanks

      Hello,
      The last couple of day's I was searching on this forum for the best way to put array's inside array's.
      The best example's i found where a little outdatet (2010) whit a lot of pro's and con's.
      Now I've a big script where a lot of computations and big array's are involved, so speed is a big issue.
      Also I wanna try the script below but don't know iff speed is a problem this way or maybe there is a better way to do this.

      Does somebody know's the best way to put array's inside array's and get the data back from them?
      I've made an example of something I was thinking about.
      (maybe something totaly wrong but I'm open for sugestions)
      I'm doing it this way because I don't think I can access the data inside the array (and doing some calculations to it) some other way if the array is inside another array.
      Or is there?
      Thanks in advanced.
      #include <Array.au3> Global $aArray[Random(5,10,1)][Random(5,10,1)] Global $Holder[2][2] For $x = 0 To UBound($aArray,1) - 1 For $y = 0 To UBound($aArray,2) - 1 $aArray[$x][$y] = Round(Random(-1,1),4) Next Next $Holder[0][0] = $aArray $aArray = "" Global $get_array = $Holder[0][0] _ArrayDisplay($get_array)

      Hello,
      I'm trying to randomly change some cells in a array on a given percentage.
      at this point I 've a array whit all 0's and want to change some cells to 1.
      I'm not shure how to do this in a good coding sort of way.
      Also maybe there is a build in function whish I'm not aware of.
      Does somebody know how I can do this in a easy way?
      I was trying to get the total count of cells and get the percentage of it.
      And was stuck when i wanna change the cell.
      please advice, thanks in advanced for your help.
      #include <Array.au3> Global $percentage = 0.2 Global $aArray[Random(10,30,1)][Random(10,30,1)] For $x = 0 To UBound($aArray,1) - 1 For $y = 0 To UBound($aArray,2) - 1 $aArray[$x][$y] = 0 Next Next _ArrayDisplay($aArray) randomize() _ArrayDisplay($aArray) Func randomize() Local $total_to_change = ((UBound($aArray,1) * UBound($aArray,2)) / 100) * $percentage ConsoleWrite( "$total_to_change = " & $total_to_change & @LF ) ConsoleWrite( "total in array = " & (UBound($aArray,1) * UBound($aArray,2)) & @LF ) EndFunc
