build a array ( unknow lines x know columns ) by itens number

Recommended Posts

Hi Forum, I need check if this code is write...

That is the fun...
You have a number of items, and need display all in an Array...

The line numbers is unknow...

The columns number is determinate...

So.. how determinate the number of lines?

Local $iQuant = 8

Local $aCell[2] = [0, 4] ; number of lines and colunmns

For $ii = 1 To $iQuant
    If Not Mod($ii, $aCell[1]) And $iQuant > $ii Then $aCell[0] += 1

ConsoleWrite("$iLin->" & $aCell[0] & @LF)
ConsoleWrite("$iCol->" & $aCell[1] & @LF)

$iQuant determine the number of itens...

$aCell is the array, it contaim the number of lines and columns, respective to show elements...

See, $aCell[0]  start with 0 lines, but, $aCell[1] have 4 columns...

So, you have a array with 4 columns and 'n' lines...

If I have $iQuant = 3, my $aCell is [0, 4], ok?

If I have $iQuant = 4, my $aCell is [0, 4], ok?

If I have $iQuant = 5, my $aCell is [1, 4], ok?

If I have $iQuant = 8, my $aCell is [1, 4], ok?

If I have $iQuant = 9, my $aCell is [2, 4], ok?

This algorithm to show the number of elments, with pre-determinad number of columns ir write?

Have any bug?

Someone have a better way to build this?

Thanks for any help

Hi JLogan3o13, this is my application, $aCell is random name.
The scope of this is, I have a number of small applications to show for end user, I want show all this info in a gui, with lines and rows.

Each line have a certain number of columns, I call cells.

Each cell is a small aplication, similar windows control panel and your icons...
This algorithm it is to calculate how many lines and columns I need to show a determinate number of applications, to build this grid or something like this.

This little calculation seems to be what you need: :)

For $i = 1 To 25
    $iRows = Floor(($i - 1) / 4) ; How many 4's are there to fit in?
    ConsoleWrite($i & ": [" & $iRows & ", 4]" & @CRLF)

I made this little change...

Local $iQuant = 5 ; number of apps to show

Local $aCell[2] = [0, 4]
; $aCell[0] is unknow number of lines
; $aCell[1] is know number of columns

$iRows = Floor(($iQuant - 1) / $aCell[1]) ; How many 4's are there to fit in?
ConsoleWrite("[" & $iRows & ", " & $aCell[1] & "]" & @CRLF)

I do not need itereate all elements, I need know how many lines is necessary to show "n" elments in an array with determinate number of columns...

Your code show this in one line, and more easy to understand than mine first code...

Both work fine, your is more easy.

Thank you again.
