Display Object Collection

4 posts in this topic

I am using ObjGet to return a collection of every Printer on a workstation.  Is there a way to display this?  Similar to _ArrayDisplay?  Or can I convert it to an Array for display purposes?

Thanks

Usually with a collection, like a SQL or WMI query, I find I have to cycle through the collection and manually populate an array. For a list of printers though, I do this:

#include <Array.au3>

Local $aPrinters[0]

$sPC = @ComputerName
$oWMI = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & $sPC & "\root\cimv2")
$colPrinters = $oWMI.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Printer")

    For $sPrinter In $colPrinters
        _ArrayAdd($aPrinters, $sPrinter.Name)
    Next

_ArrayDisplay($aPrinters)

√-1 2^3 ∑ π, and it was delicious!

Yeah, I did that too. I was hoping there was a better way.  Thanks

The _ArrayAdd solution is working, right?

By "better" you mean "faster" or "less lines of code" or ...?
