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 :)

It can be found here, too (also a version by gil900):

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.

      I have a dataset like this, (a strubg)
      Username: User1 Type: Admin RegDate: 1999 Username: User2 Type: User RegDate: 2000 How to make a 2 dimensional array that I can display with _ArrayDisplay?
      This would be a perfect 2D array to represent my data:
      Username           Tpye RegDate User1              Admin 1999 User2              User 2000   If you run this Powershell this powershell command, you can get this dataset that I am talking about:
      Get-LocalUser | Select * With this code you can try it to read into a string:
      #include <GuiConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include "GUIListViewEx.au3" #include <Array.au3> ; Just for display in example #RequireAdmin #Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=y #EndRegion $sCommand = "powershell.exe Get-LocalUser | Select *" Local $iPid = Run($sCommand, @WorkingDir , @SW_SHOW , $STDOUT_CHILD) ProcessWaitClose($iPid) Local $sOutput = StdoutRead($iPID) ConsoleWrite($sOutput) How can I correctly split $sOutput into a 2D array (with the above mentioned layout) that I can display and I work with?

      My solution is to write nested arrays without copying.
      The problem was described hier.
       
      Function:
      #include <Array.au3> ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Name ..........: _ArrayNestedSet ; Description ...: Assigns a value to an element of a nested 1D array. ; Syntax ........: _ArrayNestedSet(ByRef $aArray, $vIndex, $vValue) ; Parameters ....: $aArray - an array of arrays. ; $vIndex - an index or 1d-array of indexes; ; a size if $vValue not defined (zero to delete). ; $vValue - a value (create, resize or delete if not defined). ; ; Return values .: on success - 1 ; @extended - nesting level of operation ; on failure - 0 ; @extended - nesting level of error ; @error = 1 - invalid array ; @error = 2 - invalid index ; Author ........: ; Modified ......: kovlad ; Remarks .......: ; Related .......: ; Link ..........: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/185638-assign-a-value-to-an-array-in-array-element/ ; https://www.autoitscript.com/trac/autoit/ticket/3515?replyto=description ; Example .......: Yes ; =============================================================================================================================== Func _ArrayNestedSet(ByRef $aArray, $vIndex, $vValue = Default) Local $extended = @extended + 1 If IsArray($vIndex) Then If UBound($vIndex, 0) <> 1 Then _ Return SetError(2, $extended) If UBound($vIndex) > 1 Then If UBound($aArray, 0) <> 1 Then _ Return SetError(1, $extended) ; keep index for this array Local $i = $vIndex[0] If $i < 0 Or UBound($aArray) <= $i Then _ Return SetError(2, $extended) ; delete index of this array _ArrayDelete($vIndex, 0) ; recursive function call Local $return = _ArrayNestedSet($aArray[$i], $vIndex, $vValue) If @error Then Return SetError(@error, @extended + 1, 0) Else Return SetExtended(@extended + 1, 1) EndIf Else $vIndex = $vIndex[0] EndIf EndIf If $vValue = Default Then If $vIndex < 0 Then _ Return SetError(2, $extended) If $vIndex = 0 Then ; delete array and free memory $aArray = 0 Return SetExtended($extended, 1) EndIf If UBound($aArray, 0) = 1 Then ; resize array keeping data ReDim $aArray[$vIndex] Return SetExtended($extended, 1) Else ; create new nested array Local $aTmp[$vIndex] $aArray = $aTmp Return SetExtended($extended, 1) EndIf Else If UBound($aArray) <= $vIndex Then _ Return SetError(2, $extended + 1) ; set value of array entry $aArray[$vIndex] = $vValue Return SetExtended($extended, 1) EndIf EndFunc

      I have already read some forum answers here, and I have already tried these commands:
       
      Are there any way to use the $aOutput variable like in PowerShell:
      PowerShell:
      $a = Get-ChildItem $a.Mode I imagine this in AutoIt  $aOutput
      ConsoleWrite($aOutput[i].Mode) Or if I split this command into 2 dimension like:
      For $i To UBound($aOutput)-1 Step 1 ConsoleWrite($aOutput[$i][1]) ConsoleWrite($aOutput[$i][2]) Next

      Need help to understand how Arrays work.
      Many thanks in advance
