Storing a "|" inside an array

9 posts in this topic

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 I have a loop that keeps reading data from an array and searching it for the same value. If the value is no there it does work then adds the value to the array to prevent it from doing the same work.
      If _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) = -1 Then Work.... _ArrayAdd($ID,$filearray[$i]) EndIf This is in a for loop hence $i
      So what is happening is the code works great for several hours. After a period of time _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) will result in -1 even if $ID = $filearray. So it ready as if there is no data in the array. Anyone have this problem? 
       
      Also I am just running in using F5 not compiling it and running it if that makes a difference.

      I am reading a CSV file which is tab seperated as below.
      Local $aArray = FileReadToArray($file) And now, I am splitting this main array record wise so that Array contains internally another arrow to represent each row.
      For $i = 0 to (UBound($aArray) - 1) ;MsgBox(0,"",$aArray[$i]) $aArray[$i] = StringSplit(StringStripCR($aArray[$i]), Chr(9),2);Chr(9) for tab ;_ArrayDisplay($aArray[$i]) Next Afther that, _ArrayDIsplay is able to see the individual internal arrays.
      _ArrayDisplay($aArray[1]) But If I try to access the individual element of it as below.It is not showing any result.
      MsgBox(0,"",$aArray[1][1]) Any suggestion, below is the sample csv file.

      Need some help understanding why the ConsoleWrite works inside 2nd For loop but not out side. Between Audit Wiki, Help file , Forum searching (lots of code reading), and YouTube ( shout out to TutsTeach), I have not been able to find the reason why. 
      $sIniPath = "installLog.ini" ; - Get section name $iniSctionNames = IniReadSectionNames($sIniPath) ; - Get Keys and Vaules For $a = 1 to UBound($iniSctionNames) - 1 $keys = IniReadSection($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[$a]) For $b = 1 to UBound($keys) - 1 $oldSysInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[1], $keys[$b][0], "") $PntIPInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[2], $keys[$b][0], "") $NewPCInfor = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[3], $keys[$b][0], "") ;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF) Next ;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF) Next ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo) My intention is to use the variables later for Listboxes. Any explanation, forum post links or whatever would help. Sorry also very very new to Autoit.
      Also here's the ini file.
