A simple function to print an array in Console

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Sometimes we need to know instantly what our array contains. For this, i have made a little function to print your array in console. You may use this function in MsgBox too.

Here is the code.

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 AutoIt Version: 3.3.12.0
 Author:         kcvinu

 Script Function: Sometimes we need to see what an array or a list contains.
                  And this script will help you to see the all elements without a loop
                  Example : If you have an array like this = Local $MyArray[4] = ['Red','Green','Blue','Yellow']
                            You need to use the fuction like this = PrintList($MyArray)
                            Result : It will print your Array in Console like this
                            [Red,Green,Blue,Yellow]
    Template AutoIt script.

#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

; Script Start - Add your code below here

Func PrintList($List)
    If IsArray($List) Then
        Local $txt = ""
        For $i = 0 to UBound($List) -1
            $txt = $txt & "," & $List[$i]
        Next
        Local $out = StringMid($txt,2)
        Global $Result = "[" & $out & "]"
        ConsoleWrite($Result)
        Return $Result
    Else
        MsgBox(0, "List Error", "Variable is not an array or a list")
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>PrintList

You are aware of the _ArrayDisplay command in the UDF section of the Help file?

I don't wish to discourage you on your programming journey, but I suggest you read what I wrote >here.

P.S. Nice to see you coming along with your programming though. :thumbsup:

UEZ of the german forum has already created such an UDF to display the content of an array in a formated way on the console.

It works pretty well :)

Hi,

And you can even get _ArrayDisplay itself to nicely format the data when copied via the dialog buttons if you set the $vUser_Separator parameter to a numeric value:

#include <Array.au3>

Local $aArray[][] = [["Item 0-0", "Item 0-1"], ["Item 1-0", "Item 1-1"]]

_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Formatted", Default, Default, 10, "Column 1|Column 2")
Run the script, press the either of the "Copy Data" buttons and paste into the SciTE console to see what I mean. ;)

Hi all,

I have read your valubale comments. And I have tested the _ArrayDisplay function. I think my function is different from that. Anyway, thanks to those who supported me. :)

I think you should compare your function with the UDF written by UEZ. Both write the content of the array to the console.

I made a not so simple, but fairly elegant function to enumerate any size array which also write the contents to the console.  It is in the spoiler section of this post:

It was just a fun exercise.  I can't think of any application/purpose where I would need an array with more than 3 dimensions (I find 2-dimensions to be adequate most of the time), but I wanted to make the func dynamic enough to support whatever I threw at it.

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a way to take a number value from a Row2 of a 2D array and according to this check if files that appear in rows 3-11 in the array exists.
      For example, if the number in Row2 is 5 I need to check for the files in Row 3-6 only, if it is 6 than rows 3-7 and so on.
      I thought on using a FOR loop but I have very little experience with those.
      Can you suggest the best way to do what I need?
      BTW, the files in Rows 3-11 will usually have blank value for any row above the number in Row2 (e.g. Row2 = 5 so Rows3-6 will have values but 8-11 be empty), The values I need are in Column 1 of the array, the name of the key from the INI file that the array was created from is in Column 0.
      Full Example:
      Row2 of Array:
      Col0 = Games# - Col1 = 5
      Rows3-6
      Col0 = Exe2 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe3 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe4 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe5 - Col1 = Path To File
      I need that if Row2 is 5 to check these above for rows if the file exists, if it was 6 then the next row as well and so on up until number 10 in Row2 as it can't go above 10.
      So basically for whatever number in Row2 from 2-10 need to check 1-9 rows from 3-11 to see if the files in Col1 exists and if any of them don't exist it should call a function that shows an error message.
      I'm pretty sure I have the first line of the for look correct:
      For $i = 1 To $aAIO[2][1] Just not sure how to continue from there, also not sure if $i should be equal 1 or 2.
      Help will be appreciated.

      Hello,
      I'm trying to get data from twitter to an array and so far I found an Twitter UDF whish lookes very intresting but couldn't get it to work.
      It lookes not supported any more(2010) and buggy when i read all te replies.
      More around this subject (autoit and twitter) i couldn't find on this forum.
      Is there sombody who know's a good way to get live data from twitter to an array inside autoit?
      (I kinda doubt that this isn't tackled before)
      In the end I was hoping to get all tweets from date to date from an specific subject inside a 2D array to work whit.

      I got a question:  i am trying to run different functions based upon what i select in these radio buttons.(code below)
      it needs to check server 1. then run function 1 or function 2 after what i selected in the checkbox.
      once that function is done it moves to the next one, until it has been trough all 5 
       
      iv'e tried using while loops with different while $i equals to something but then i manualy need to go in and edit the script every time.

      Hi everyone, 
      I'm currently writing a script that allow me to list all currently installed software on a computer but some of the are listed in the HKLM64 hive of the registry whereas 95% of all others are in the HKLM "normal" one.
      Thing is, I'd like to combine these two reg key into one single ListView item.
      Here's my code so far, knowing that it's working on both cases (changing to HKLM64 or HKLM short)
      Thanks in advance for the help

      Hi everyone, I'm at best a noobie.  I have read through the Array helps, and specifically the 2D array help file, and I'm struggling to get my code working.
      I have an array that is read from a file, thats working great.  I'm trying to do some math on the array, so I can find the largest, average, lowest, day over day change %, etc.
      The array read working fine, I get 43 lines, line 0 is 44, and then I get data that looks like
      0519 $10,000
      0520 $10,001
      0521 $10,002
      The data in this array is a single 1D array, breaking it out into 2 columns so I can do the math is what I can get to happen.  
      How do I reference the array to store this data?  Second, how do I assign this data to the appropriate row/column?
      Thanks in advance.
      Dim $all_cash_amounts[UBound($aInput)][2] Dim $max_amount_in_account Dim $min_amount_in_account _FileReadToArray($LC_Check_file_path, $aInput) _ArrayDisplay($aInput) local $date = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1) local $cash = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "\d+\s(-?[0-9\.\,]+)", 1) ConsoleWrite("Date is: " & $date & @CRLF) For $i = 1 To UBound($aInput)-1     $date = StringRegExp($aInput[$i], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1)     $all_cash_amounts[$i][2] = $date[$i][0], $cash[$i][1]      Next _ArrayDisplay($all_cash_amounts)
