Storing a "|" inside an array

Recommended Posts

BlazerV60

Hello everyone,

I was trying to store this string into my array: "Hamsters | Cute"

But after I store it, I used _ArrayDIsplay and it showed "Hamster" being on one row and "Cute" being on the row after it.

So it looks like the "|" symbol acts as a row seperator in an array.

My question is: Is there a way for my array to display "Hamsters | Cute" in 1 row ?

Thanks,

Brian

Hi BlazerV60

Can you post some of your script ?

Maybe try check autoit wiki http://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Arrays

If im not wrong then you are using this :

Local $iMax
 
Local $data = "Element 1|Element 2|Element 3"
 
; The string in data will be split into an array everywhere | is encountered
Local $arr = StringSplit($data, "|")  
 
If IsArray($arr) Then 
    For $i = 1 to $arr[0]
        ConsoleWrite($arr[$i] & @LF)
    Next
EndIf

Try change "|" to "," and check stringsplit function : https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/StringSplit.htm

Local $iMax
 
Local $data = "Hamster | Cute,Array2 | Array2"
 
; The string in data will be split into an array everywhere | is encountered
Local $arr = StringSplit($data, ",")  
 
If IsArray($arr) Then 
    For $i = 1 to $arr[0]
        ConsoleWrite($arr[$i] & @LF)
    Next
EndIf

 Hi ghost

,

Thanks for responding! For certain reasons, I need the separator to be "|" and not a comma or any other symbol.

Here is what my code looks like:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

$Ham1 = "Hamster"
$Ham2 = "Cute"

Local $aArray_Base[2] = ["Org item 1", "Org item 2"]

_ArrayAdd($aArray_Base, $Ham1&"|"&$Ham2)
_ArrayDisplay($aArray_Base, "1D - Base array")

Did you read the help file for _ArrayAdd()? Change the $sDelim_Item to something other than |.

If you avoid using _ArrayAdd() then you should not encounter such problems. It is best if you know the size of the array in advance, then you can simply assign values to the array elements as and when needed.

;

#include <Array.au3>

Local $aArray[3] ; 3 elements are needed

$aArray[0] = "Hamster"
$aArray[1] = "Cute"
$aArray[2] = $aArray[0] & "|" & $aArray[1]

_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

;

Also take a look at ReDim in the help file (for resizing arrays).

The changes to _ArrayAdd() certainly make the function more flexible, which I see as a definite improvement. :)

Using the OP's code in post #3 and assuming that the expected output is a 1D array - and using _ArrayAdd and its really nice improvement  :)

#include <Array.au3>

$Ham1 = "Hamster"
$Ham2 = "Cute"

Local $aArray_Base[2] = ["Org item 1", "Org item 2"]

_ArrayAdd($aArray_Base, $Ham1&"|"&$Ham2, 0, ";")
_ArrayDisplay($aArray_Base, "1D - Base array")

      So Im trying to make a simple 2d game and make some sort of collision detection so why not to make a 2 dimensional array but i have no clue how  to write it in multiple lines
      Global $map[5,5] = [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0] something like this but it doesn't work
    • Zein
      By Zein
      #include "..\Include\Array.au3" #include "..\Include\File.au3" #include "..\Include\AutoItConstants.au3" Local $aRetArray Local $sFilePath = "n.csv" _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, ",") ; _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, $FRTA_COUNT, ",") _ArrayDisplay($aRetArray, "Original", Default, 8) The above code shows two versions of _FileReadToArray and both don't work as expected.
      The first one doesn't use the comma as a delimiter. (so I get a single column array)  I tried adding "Default" between $aRetArray and "," then it told me it had an incorrect number of parameters. 

      I looked again at the documentation:
       
      #include <File.au3> _FileReadToArray ( $sFilePath, ByRef $vReturn [, $iFlags = $FRTA_COUNT [, $sDelimiter = ""]] )
      And I with or without the flags params I should be getting a 2D array due to my file being a csv. 
      I then tried a regular flag, $FRTA_COUNT, and it tells me that I'm using a variable $FRTA_COUNT while it's not declared. Tried putting in 1 instead and it told me again, incorrect number of params.

      Hi,
      Recently I have had the need to do a sort and then do a second sort while the item of the first sort stays the same ( double sorting , first on column x then while column x is the same sort column y).
      I did not put much efffort into error checking but so far I did not need it.
      For my applications so far it works perfectly however if someone is willing I want to test this extensivly.
      If anyone has big lists of random stuff to sort could you try this out please?
      #include <Array.au3> ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Name ..........: _ArraySort_Double ; Description ...: ; Syntax ........: _ArraySort_Double (Byref $array[, $first_index = Default[, $second_index = Default[, $ascending = Default]]]) ; Parameters ....: $array - 2d array to sort. ; $first_index - [optional] first column to sort.

      So I've made this script that detects how long i have held down my left mouse button for and stores the information in an array and then sorts its using _ArraySort but the output is half sorted half broken.
      Here's my script:
      HotKeySet("{F1}","_exit") #include <Misc.au3> #include <Timers.au3> #include <Array.au3> Local $dll = DllOpen("user32.dll") $on = False Global $array[0] While(1) If _IsPressed(01,$dll) Then $timer = _Timer_Init() While _IsPressed(01,$dll) Sleep(1) WEnd $time = _Timer_Diff($timer) _ArrayAdd($array,"Time: " & Floor($time) & " ms") ;~ ConsoleWrite("Time: " & Floor($time) & " ms" & @CRLF) EndIf Sleep(50) WEnd Func _exit() _ArraySort($array) _ArrayDisplay($array) Exit EndFunc And the output:

      See how its not sorted?  What is the problem here?

      Hi guys,
      See attached for an array example.
      to simplify what i want to achieve,  I want to split this array into 9 different csv files.
      the first file would contain the list of "key" and the corresponding "ID1", the second would have "key" and the "ID2", the third would have "key" and "ID3"
      However, I want to remove all the rows that don't have an ID recorded in the respective ID2, ID3 4...5...6 etc, so the file only contains row items with a key and the ID.
      Would be the best way to loop through the rows and delete the row if the array field is blank - would I then need to repeat that row ID to check that the row that its replaced is also empty (ie the one after the one I just deleted)? I see this getting messy.
      or _arraySort, and delete everything below the last filled row? <-- this might be best?
      Or should I use the excel UDF, apply a filter (not selecting the blanks), then create/export to the array->csv?
       
      Super keen to hear your thoughts.
      thanks!
