_ArrayToString bugged

Go to solution Solved by Quirinus,

It's bugged or I'm doing it wrong.

Consider this example:

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

Local $aArray[10][10]
For $i = 0 To 9
    For $j = 0 To 9
        $aArray[$i][$j] = $i & "-" & $j
_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "2D Array")
$start_col = 0
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Rows 4-7,  cols 2-5", _ArrayToString($aArray, " :: ", 0, 9, @CRLF, $start_col, $start_col))

It produces the whole array, all cells joined by " :: " and all rows joined by @CRLF. It should produce just the 0-th row.

If you change $start_col to 1 or any other number, it works correctly. Does anyone have any idea what is wrong in my code or the _ArrayToString code in Array.au3?

I would try to figure out what's the problem in the Array.au3, but I don't have time to do it now. If no one figures it out I might give it a try later on.

I see the bug and I have a fix. I need to test it a bit more but it should be fixed in the next Beta. :)


Edit: And done. :)

BTW I'm running the release, is this still present  in the latest beta ?

Func _ArraySort(ByRef $avArray, $iDescending = 0, $iStart = 0, $iEnd = 0, $iSubItem = 0, $iPivot = 0)
    ; ....
    ; Bounds checking
    If $iEnd = Default Then $iEnd = 0
    If $iEnd < 1 Or $iEnd > $iUBound Or $iEnd = Default Then $iEnd = $iUBound

Thanks, Melba23! Would be cool if you posted the fix too next time, but no problem, it's not a hard one to find, and I guess the next release isn't far off. :)

I took a look at Array.au3 and found the issue, if anyone needs a quick fix before the beta is out. It works if I remove the line:

If $iEnd_Row = 0 Then $iEnd_Row = $iDim_1

from the start of  _ArrayToString function, and this line:

If $iEnd_Col = 0 Then $iEnd_Col = $iDim_2

under the Case 2. I'm not sure if it messes up something else, but it works to my satisfaction.

I noticed the same problem with _ArrayExtract, so I submitted a ticket here:


Also, the documentation for _ArrayExtract is wrong, as indicated in the ticket.
