thebreaker,

I hear you - but yours is the only dissenting voice since I began this rewrite back in January so I hope you understand if I do not change it to meet your personal expectations. Especially since I have now amended the function to do as you require - even if it means you might need to add a few extra parameters to your code. :)

RTFC, As Basil Fawlty once remarked: "A satisfied customer. We should have him stuffed". Glad you like the final result. M23

RTFC,   Sorry, but we did warn that "THIS IS A SCRIPT BREAKING CHANGE" when we released the new Array library. We felt the added functionality was worth the inconvenience.   I thought I did that in

czardas, I would really advise that you put your efforts into complaining about those UDF authors who use unnecessary Global variables instead of Global constants. PreExpand has show it's relatively

This is not only about my personal expectation. I could use the old version of the module and everything works as before.

The question is what the general expectations from users/programmers using functions are and what your (or the AutoIt projects') standards / guidelines are to define functions and modules.

I think my expectation would be common sense between programmers and program language / API designers. If this is the case, the function should IMHO be changed (again). The absence of objections is not necessarily the best basis for a decision - I don't know how many think about such things or follow these threads.

Of course, the decision is yours. I just want to make sure my point is understood correctly.

After some playing, I like the old _ArrayAdd behavior better.  Busting up arrays and adding as individual items seems more like...... _ArrayConcatenate?   I know I am late to the party, as requirements prevented my upgrade, but this is the second UDF I have encountered in which functions that yield completely different returns are deemed "replacements" rather than "additions". 

i only have single elements and 1D arrays, and if I had to update my old scripts I would probably go this route so I only have to change the ArrayAdd to set an unused delimiter, and swap the isarray check for stringinstr and stringsplit.

#include <Array.au3>

Global $aArray[1] = ["test"]
Global $bArray[2] = ["B1" , "B2"]

_ArrayAdd($aArray, "test2")
_ArrayAdd($aArray, _ArrayToString($bArray) , 0 , "^")

for $i = 0 to ubound($aArray) - 1
    If stringinstr($aArray[$i] , "|") Then
        $aElement = stringsplit($aArray[$i] , "|" , 2)
        _ArrayDisplay($aElement)
    Else
        msgbox(0, '' , $aArray[$i])
    EndIf
Next

Hi,

After a lot of discussion behind the scenes we have come up with a solution. The function will accept a range of pre-defined constants to change its behaviour. The default will remain auto-splitting added items, as that was one of the major requests when I started the library rewrite. But those who want to have the previous behaviour of adding data as a single item can simply amend their personal version of the function to use the "SINGLEITEM" constant as the default. :)

I will be committing the change tomorrow. Thanks to those who took the time to reply, even if none of you were happy - I hope you are now. :whistle:

Edit: Committed. :)

You can find the source for array.au3 in the Include folder in the directory where you installed AutoIt. The source for AutoIt itself is no longer openly available (for the current version, at least)

I meant the newest version of the script of course. The downloadable AutoIt version (installer) is dated from before the change was made and does not contain it I believe.

It doesn't make sense if we talk here about a changed version of an include file and I can't download the current development version from somewhere...

Sad that Autoit source is not available anymore publicly. I assume one must pay for it some day and I can now look for an alternative.

thebreaker,

The latest version of the Array library is in Beta v3.3.13.19 - just install that and you will have access to it. ;)

AutoIt not being open source has nothing to do with plans to make people pay to use it. As far as I know it will remain free to use for the foreseeable future, so no need to look around just yet. :)

After a while blocked, stuck with this strange behaviour of _arrayadd I found this thread, and I read all the opinions.

My 2 cents: ok this isn't the first script breaking change, but I think you have to "switch on" this "auto explode" mode of _Arrayadd, you cannot hope that "|" is not so common used...

Looked at the beta, but for now: 

_arrayadd($finalarray, $linesArray[$i],0,"¥")

I'll pay this in Yen  :bye:
