_FileListToArray sorting ?

Recommended Posts

Alexxander

Hi 

I'am trying to list files from folder sorted by name (same as the picture)

Untitled.png

i tried this code

#include <File.au3>

 $arr = _FileListToArray("D:\2")
 _ArrayDisplay($arr)

i am getting this result

 

Untitled.png

Any one could explain why it is putting 10-1 before 8-1 ?

how can i make Autoit view file same as windows explorer ?

Alexxander,

You need to sort the items numerically - at present you are sorting them as alphabetic strings. Here is how you might go about it:

#include <Array.au3>

; Simulate reading files
$sList = "8-1.mp3:8-2.mp3:10-2.mp3:8-4.mp3:8-5.mp3:10-1.mp3:8-3.mp3"
$aList = StringSplit($sList, ":")

_ArrayDisplay($aList, "Unsorted", Default, 8)

; Now create a 2D array...
_ArrayColInsert($aList, 1)
_ArrayDisplay($aList, "2D", Default, 8)

; ...and set the [1] element to the number
For $i = 1 To $aList[0][0]
    $aList[$i][1] = Number(StringRegExpReplace($aList[$i][0], "[^0-9]", ""))
Next
_ArrayDisplay($aList, "Number column", Default, 8)

; Now sort the items numerically
_ArraySort($aList, 0, 1, 0, 1)
_ArrayDisplay($aList, "Numerical Sort", Default, 8)

; And finally remove the number column
_ArrayColDelete($aList, 1)
_ArrayDisplay($aList, "Final", Default, 8)
All clear? :)

thanks bro 

 it is workign fine for all the names that have "-" in them when i have a name without "-" it will not but that number in the right place

#include <Array.au3>

; Simulate reading files
$sList = "8-1.mp3:8-2.mp3:10-2.mp3:8-4.mp3:8-5.mp3:10-1.mp3:8-3.mp3:16"
$aList = StringSplit($sList, ":")

_ArrayColInsert($aList, 1)


For $i = 1 To $aList[0][0]
    $aList[$i][1] = Number(StringRegExpReplace($aList[$i][0], "[^0-9]", ""))
Next


_ArraySort($aList, 0, 1, 0, 1)
_ArrayColDelete($aList, 1)
_ArrayDisplay($aList, "Final", Default, 8)
The code result:
 
 

 

 

 

16 must be the last not the first...

any ideas ?

Alexxander,

If all the file names are of the form ##[-##] and have the ".mp3" extension (or no extension at all), then change this line: :)

$aList[$i][1] = Number(StringReplace(StringReplace($aList[$i][0], ".mp3", ""), "-", "."))
But if there are a mix of extensions or filenames which use other then a "-" to separate the number sections of the name then you will need something more complicated. ;)

Also, we can add some blanks before each value, to have all strings with the same length (128 for example), and then sort the array :

#include <Array.au3>

; Simulate reading files
$sList = "8-1.mp3:8-2.mp3:10-2.mp3:8-4.mp3:8-5.mp3:10-1.mp3:8-3.mp3"
$aList = StringSplit($sList, ":")
_ArrayDisplay($aList, "Unsorted", Default, 8)

; Now create a 2D array...
_ArrayColInsert($aList, 1)
; ...and set the [1] element to the number

For $i = 1 To $aList[0][0]
    ; Adds spaces on the left, to have 128 caracters string
    $aList[$i][1] = StringFormat("%128s", $aList[$i][0] )
Next
_ArrayDisplay($aList, "2D", Default, 8)

_ArraySort($aList,  0, 0, 0, 1)
_ArrayColDelete($aList, 1)
_ArrayDisplay($aList, "Number column", Default, 8)

;$aList = StringSplit($sList, ":")

$arr = _FileListToArray("D:\2")
$aList = StringSplit(_ArrayToString($arr,":"), ":")

;_ArrayDisplay($aList, "Unsorted", Default, 8)

; Now create a 2D array...

; ...and set the [1] element to the number

For $i = 1 To $aList[0][0]
    ; Adds spaces on the left, to have 128 caracters string
    $aList[$i][1] = StringFormat("%128s", $aList[$i][0] )
Next
;_ArrayDisplay($aList, "2D", Default, 8)

_ArraySort($aList,  0, 0, 0, 1)
_ArrayColDelete($aList, 1)

Alexxander,

It looks as if you want to show only .mp3 files - if that is the case then use the filter parameter of _FileListToArray to only list those files. Then the sort works as you wish: :)

#include <Array.au3>

; Simulate reading files with mp3 extension only
$sList = "14.mp3:16.mp3:8-1.mp3:8-2.mp3:10-1.mp3:10-2.mp3:11-1.mp3:11-2.mp3:11-3.mp3:13-2.mp3:13-3.mp3:15-1.mp3:15-2.mp3"
$aList = StringSplit($sList, ":")

_ArrayColInsert($aList, 1)

For $i = 1 To $aList[0][0]
    $aList[$i][1] = Number(StringReplace(StringReplace($aList[$i][0], ".mp3", ""), "-", "."))
Next

_ArraySort($aList, 0, 0, 0, 1)

_ArrayColDelete($aList, 1)

_ArrayDisplay($aList, "Final", Default, 8)

the last code worker perfectly but it made problems when their is a string before the number (sorry about not saying that earlier )

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

; Simulate reading files with mp3 extension only
$arr = _FileListToArray("D:\3")
$aList = StringSplit(_ArrayToString($arr,":"), ":")
;$sList = "14.mp3:16.mp3:8-1.mp3:8-2.mp3:10-1.mp3:10-2.mp3:11-1.mp3:11-2.mp3:11-3.mp3:13-2.mp3:13-3.mp3:15-1.mp3:15-2.mp3"
;$aList = StringSplit($sList, ":")

_ArrayColInsert($aList, 1)

For $i = 1 To $aList[0][0]
    $aList[$i][1] = Number(StringReplace(StringReplace($aList[$i][0], ".mp3", ""), "-", "."))
Next

_ArraySort($aList, 0, 0, 0, 1)

_ArrayColDelete($aList, 1)

_ArrayDisplay($aList, "Final", Default, 8)

the result:

ts-almojadilah5-3.mp3
ts-almojadilah6-1.mp3
ts-almojadilah6-2.mp3
ts-almojadilah4-4.mp3
ts-almojadilah4-5.mp3

Maybe you can try with Binary instead of Number :

#include <Array.au3>

; Simulate reading files with mp3 extension only
$sList = "ts-almojadilah5-3.mp3;ts-almojadilah6-1.mp3;ts-almojadilah6-2.mp3;ts-almojadilah4-4.mp3;" & _
         "ts-almojadilah4-5.mp3;ts-almojadilah5-1.mp3;ts-almojadilah7-3.mp3;ts-almojadilah7-4.mp3;" & _ 
         "ts-almojadilah7-5.mp3;ts-almojadilah6-3.mp3;ts-almojadilah7-1.mp3;ts-almojadilah7-2.mp3;" & _ 
         "ts-almojadilah4-3.mp3;ts-almojadilah2-2.mp3;ts-almojadilah2-3.mp3;ts-almojadilah2-1.mp3;" & _
         "ts-almojadilah1-1.mp3;ts-almojadilah1-2.mp3;ts-almojadilah2-4.mp3;ts-almojadilah4-1.mp3;" & _ 
         "ts-almojadilah4-2.mp3;ts-almojadilah3-3.mp3;ts-almojadilah3-1.mp3;ts-almojadilah3-2.mp3"

$aList = StringSplit($sList, ";")

_ArrayColInsert($aList, 1)

For $i = 1 To $aList[0][0]
    $aList[$i][1] = Binary(StringReplace(StringReplace($aList[$i][0] , ".mp3", ""), "-", "."))
Next
_ArrayDisplay($aList)

_ArraySort($aList, 0, 0, 0, 1)

_ArrayColDelete($aList, 1)

_ArrayDisplay($aList, "Final", Default, 8)

non of the above was 100% right every code has a bug

i ended using php natural sorting and and windows php to complete the job

but thanks you a lot to every one who tried and thanks to this awesome scripting language and forum

Alexxander - The last post by mikell works on the given strings which contain digits. The specific implementation has limitations, but it's a good example of how to solve this kind of problem. A better way (for an unknown sample) would be to get the length of the longest string of digits within the sample and then prefix the required number of zeros to all instances of numeric strings accordingly. Strings not containing digits should probably be included in the sort - only without modification.

The _ArrayMultiSort function is only used in the example to separate the "txt" files out from between the "mp3" files. I had it from years past, and it did the job.

The interesting thing is the ways of sorting all the numbers that are separated by "-".

1/ Sort as two individual numbers: or,

2/ Sort the numbers as though the second number is the decimal part of the first number.

These two sorting order results can differ.

      Hi Virtual People,
      My array works perfectly fine. However, what is the best practice if the line in the array doesn't have the correct amount of columns and if I can add a placeholder?

       
      For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") Next

      hi all,
      reviewing the forum, this thread is applicable: 
       
       
      I wanted to know if there is now a better way to do this?
      In essence, I load a tab delimited txt file into an array (works well). I used tab, as some fields in the original csv contains commas.
      However, I needed autoit to manipulate this array, and output it as a csv.
      IF my array contains items with a comma, without double quotes around the field, then how best do I get a csv out of this?
      My current workaround is to filewritefromarray tab delimited, then open it in excel and save as a csv. I will need to check this to see how the address fields behave that contain a comma.
       
      Any thoughts would be appreciated.

      I would like to know how you would take a FileLineRead and insert it into an array which then inserts it into Excel?
      One thing to know is the files content is broken up, so I only use half of the content within $FileRead1.
      So its imperative that the $value1, $value2, etc variables be used. 
      Code below:
      $FileRead1 = FileReadLine("C:\temp\sample.txt",1) For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] $value4 = $input[4] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value4, "D1") Next

      Hello,
      I'm trying to write a script that moves copies excel cells into an array. I'll than manipulate the values and send array into another program. 
      I don't want range to be specific to a workbook, or sheet, or set of cells.
      I want user to be able to highlight desired cells and to copy either normally ("Ctrl+C") or by a hotkey ("Alt+C"). 
      Could someone help me with this?
      Thank you,
      I've tried to write the framework: (edited)
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> HotKeySet("!v", "Pastedata") While True Sleep(1000) WEnd func Makearray() local $bArray ;User has cells already copied ;Convert clipboard into an array ;I don;t know how excel stores data to clipboard so don;t know how to bring it into array _Arraydisplay($bArray) MsgBox(0,0,$bArray) return $bArray endfunc func Pastedata() Local $aArray MsgBox(0,0,"wait",1) ;make array based on assumption user has already copied a range to clipboard $aArray = Makearray() ;paste code ;don;t worry about this I got the rest endfunc

      I want to make a while loop, that creates variables based on a array. For thist I created the array $iDsO with the number and the name of folders in an other folder. Every folder has a different name an I want to create variables(arrays) for each folder that show me all the files in that folder. For example: I have the Folder \Folder1. In it there are the Folders \1, \2, \3. In 1, 2 and 3 there are some files(.png). The array for Folder1 is $iDsO and now I want to crate the arrays $iDsO1, $iDsO2 and $iDsO3 with the files in them can I make something like this:
      While $iDs > 0 ;$iDs is the number of files in Folder1>> $iDsO[0] $iDs#here should come the Foldername for example '1'# = _FileListtoArray(@ProgramFilesDir&"\Folder1\"&$iDsO[$iDs]) $iDs = $iDs - 1 Wend So that in the End I have three variabels ($iDs1, $iDs2 and $iDs3)
       
      Is this posible or if not what could I do instead ( I don´t know the number of folders in Folder1 in the begining).
