Re-ordering a simple array

Recommended Posts

BlazerV60

Hello everyone,

I created this small script that shows a list of 10 people in an array.

Each person is associated with a number which is stored in another array.

Chris is associated with 3, Brian with 4, Daniel with 2, Stephen with 6 and so on.

I then made the first array (with the names in them), to be sorted in alphabetical order.

How can I make the second array with the numbers in them, also sorted accordingly so that each person is still matched with their number?

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>

Local $Array1[10] = ["Chris","Brian","Daniel","Stephen","William", "Joseph", "Diana", "Thomas", "Jason", "Carol"]
Local $Array2[10] = [3, 4, 2, 6, 7, 1, 9, 10, 5, 8]

_ArraySort($Array1)
_ArrayDisplay($Array1, "Sorted in Alphabetical Order")

;Display Array2 showing the new sorted out rows, so that each person is still matched with the number they are associated with. Results should show 4, 8, 3, 2, 9, 5, 1, 6, 10, 7

Thanks,

Brian

Use a 2d array instead of 2x 1d arrays.

Like UEZ said, like this:

#include <Array.au3>

Local $Array1 = [ _
    ["Chris", 3], _
    ["Brian", 4], _
    ["Daniel", 2], _
    ["Stephen", 6], _
    ["William", 7], _
    ["Joseph", 1], _
    ["Diana", 9], _
    ["Thomas", 10], _
    ["Jason", 5], _
    ["Carol", 8] _
]

_ArraySort($Array1)
_ArrayDisplay($Array1, "Sorted in Alphabetical Order")

Thanks UEZ and jchd! That made sense and I was able to get the results I wanted thanks to the 2d array method.

I have one more question though,

jchd, you had to manually type out both of my columns in your code.

Is there a way to combine both of my original 1d arrays into a 2d array with 2 columns through some sort of autoit code? Because my arrays may have 1000 entries in each and it would take too long to manually type those out.

Thanks,

Brian

Of course there is the simple pedestrian way: use a For..Next loop with a single index used to read $Partial1DArray1, $Partial1DArray2 and write $Monster2DArray elements.

#include <Array.au3>

Local $Array1 = ["Chris","Brian","Daniel","Stephen","William", "Joseph", "Diana", "Thomas", "Jason", "Carol"]
Local $Array2 = [3, 4, 2, 6, 7, 1, 9, 10, 5, 8]

If UBound($Array1) <> UBound($Array2) Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "Big mistake")
Else
    Local $Array[UBound($Array1)][2]
    For $i = 0 To UBound($Array1) - 1
        $Array[$i][0] = $Array1[$i]
        $Array[$i][1] = $Array2[$i]
    Next
    ; optionally free both partial arrays
    $Array1 = 0
    $Array2 = 0
    _ArraySort($Array)
    _ArrayDisplay($Array, "Sorted in Alphabetical Order")
EndIf

      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

      #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. Default is 0. ; $second_index - [optional] second column to sort. Default is 1. ; $ascending - [optional] ascending/descending. Default is 1. ; Return values .: 1 if no errors occured , -1 if errors occured ; Author ........: Ternal ; Remarks .......: Needs excessive testing. ; Related .......: _arraysort() ; =============================================================================================================================== Func _ArraySort_Double (byref $array, $first_index = Default, $second_index = Default, $ascending = Default) Local $temp_value Local $counter = 1 If UBound($array, $UBOUND_DIMENSIONS) <> 2 Then MsgBox(0, "error", "error") return -1 EndIf If $first_index = Default Then $first_index = 0 If $second_index = Default Then $second_index = 1 If $ascending = Default Then $ascending = 1 _ArraySort($array, $ascending, 0, 0, $first_index); you can alter settings of primary sort here If @error Then MsgBox(0, "error", @error) return -1 EndIf $temp_value = $array[0][$first_index] For $x = 1 to UBound($array, 1) - 1 If Mod( $x, 10000) = 0 Then ConsoleWrite("at " & $x & " of a total : " & UBound($array, 1) & @CRLF) If $array[$x][$first_index] = $temp_value Then $counter+= 1 If $x = UBound($array, 1) - 1 Then; do last line here(if last line is not a new item) _ArraySort($array, $ascending, $x - $counter, $x, $second_index);you can alter settings of secondary sort here(don't forget to place line 34 the exact same) If @error Then MsgBox(0, "error", @error) return -1 EndIf EndIf Else If $counter > 0 Then ;at least 2 of the same _ArraySort($array, $ascending, $x - $counter, $x - 1, $second_index);you can alter settings of secondary sort here(don't forget to place line 29 the exact same) If @error Then MsgBox(0, "error", @error) return -1 EndIf $counter = 1 EndIf EndIf $temp_value = $array[$x][$first_index] Next Return 1 EndFunc Kind regards, Ternal

      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!
