array index count

4 posts in this topic

hey guys,

I looked through the help file functions to no avail. Is there a way to grab the array index instead of its value?


Say like








I want to use the first array index "$somearray[0][2]" as its index and not its value, so in this case 0. Next I would use "$somearray[1][2]" as 1.  Is there a way to do this? I just dont want to create another set of variables to do this.

Thnaks in advance,

Use Enums...or I've misread what you want:

Global Enum $iArray1d_Jeff, $iArray1d_Lilly, $iArray1d_UBound
Global Enum $iArray2d_Age, $iArray2d_Sex, $iArray2d_UBound
Global $aUsers[$iArray1d_UBound][$iArray2d_UBound]

ConsoleWrite("Jeff is Aged=[" & $aUsers[$iArray1d_Jeff][$iArray2d_Age] & "]." & @CRLF)

      Good evening
      I was looking around the forum if I could find a function that allows to convert a string into a 2 dimensional array...
      The first column of the array is always the same, but the rows could change...
      I have a pattern like:

      Column A|Column B
      Static Text 1|Data 1
      Static Text 2|Data 2
      Static Text 3|Data 3
      Static Text 4|Data 4

      Where, Static Text (1...4) will be always the same, and I don't want to change them... But, Data 1...4 are dynamic fields... So, I could have the pattern above AND I coould have the pattern I'm going to show you right below

      Column A|Column B
      Static Text 1|Data 1
      Static Text 2|Data 2
      Static Text 3|Data 3
      Static Text 4|Data 4
      Static Text 1|Data 5
      Static Text 2|Data 6
      Static Text 3|Data 7
      Static Text 4|Data 8

      How can I do in this case?

      Thanks for everyone's help

      I have a string with comma seperated as below.
      $machine_names = StringSplit($tempINIValue, ',', $STR_ENTIRESPLIT) with the above line i can get a single dimension array.
      But I want a tabular format array like 4X4 where I want to add the 4 single dimension arrays as different columns in them.
      Is there any option to do the same.

      im getting strange output in array display,$split_[1] is not properly aligned to other arrays and why guictrlsetdata is not writting any data if i put comma(,) at the end of the text in $Input1???

      Hey !
      I was looking for an array display to see the result of StringSplit but when i called the <Array.au3>, an error is showing up when i try to launch the script.
      I took a screenshoot of the windows dialog box error : imp.bmp
      And when I look into the Array.au3 there is no error :
      Why is it doing this ?

      I was reading a recent post about converting a 2D array into a 1D array.  The OP, from my understanding, more-or-less wanted to extract a single column of data and format it in a 1D array.  The solutions were proper and efficient compared to what I wanted to share, but I figured I'd share as it's a good lesson and a neat, purely mathematical approach to mapping an index to a 2D array.  As-is, this only works for 2D arrays.  
      By knowing how big a 2D array is, an index can be calculated for each indices/subscript.  The functions below define a random sized 2D array, and calculate an index that matches the indices on the 2D array.
      #include "Array.au3" $iRow = Random(2,10,1) $iCol = Random(2,10,1) $iRandomIndex = Random(0,($iRow*$iCol)-1,1) $sIndicies = _IndexTo2DIndicies($iRandomIndex, $iRow, $iCol) _2DArrayTo1DIndexes($iRow, $iCol, $iRandomIndex & " = $aArr" & $sIndicies) Func _2DArrayTo1DIndexes($iRow = 1, $iCol = 1, $sMsg = Default) $iRow = Int($iRow) $iCOl = Int($iCol) Local $aData[$iRow][$iCol] For $iY = 0 to $iRow - 1 For $iX = 0 to $iCol - 1 Local $iIndex ;Index = ($iColMax * $iY) + $iX $aData[$iY][$iX] = ($iCol * $iY) + $iX Next Next If $sMsg = Default Then $sMsg = "1D Indexes of 2D Array Indicies" _ArrayDisplay($aData,$sMsg) EndFunc Func _IndexTo2DIndicies($iIndex = 0, $iRow = 0, $iCol = 0) $iIndex = Int($iIndex) $iRow = Int($iRow) $iCol = Int($iCol) If $iIndex = 0 Then Return "[0][0]" If $iIndex >= $iRow * $iCol Then Return SetError(1,0,0) Local $iX = Mod($iIndex, $iCol) ;Local $iY = ($iIndex-$iX) / $iCol Local $iY = Int($iIndex / $iCol) ;Thanks Chimp Return "[" & $iY & "][" & $iX & "]" EndFunc I used this type of approach before with a pixel array.  I had a 1D array for storing individual pixel information, then mapped the pixels to an X|Y grid (2D array or XY coords).

      Now if the purpose is just to flatten an array, the most efficient way I am aware of would be to create a new 1D array the size of the total number of indices in the 2D array (RowMax * ColMax), and loop through the array.  I suppose these methods (above) would be particularly useful if you need to randomly or programmatically access indices in a non-linear fashion.

      Anyways, just wanted to share a fun exercise with arrays.
