Combining Arrays

Recommended Posts

cdjphoenix

I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on a problem I've been having combining some arrays. I've searched the forum and found some posts but I'm still having troubles

My goal is to have an array that I can display with 3 seperate columns, I'd actually be happy with anyway to get 3 arrays on a table. I have a MySQL server that I am pulling 3 different fields from "firstname", "lastname" and "phone" and I can pull the data without any problems, it's just combining them.

Here is what I have currently code wise. It's not very pretty but it works...

#include "mysql.au3"
#include "array.au3"

$sql = _MySQLConnect('username','password','table','TestSystem')
$row = _Query($sql, "SELECT * FROM fax")
Global $aArray
Global $sFill
Global $aArray_Base [1] [3]
$aArray = $aArray_Base

Global $aArray2
Global $sFill2
Global $aArray_Base2 [1] [3]
$aArray2 = $aArray_Base2

Global $aArray3
Global $sFill3
Global $aArray_Base3 [1] [3]
$aArray3 = $aArray_Base3

with $row
While NOT .EOF

   Global $FirstName = .Fields("firstname").value
   Global $LastName = .Fields("lastname").value
   Global $FaxNumber = .Fields("faxnumber").value
   $sFill = $FirstName
   $sFill2 = $LastName
   $sFill3 = $FaxNumber
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill)
   _ArrayAdd($aArray2, $sFill2)
   _ArrayAdd($aArray3, $sFill3)
   .MoveNext


   ;MsgBox(0,"TEST",$FirstName &" " & $LastName & " " & $FaxNumber)
WEnd

EndWith

_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Test Array")
_ArrayDisplay($aArray2, "Test Array")
_MySQLEnd($sql)

Thank you for taking the time to look at my code/problem.

why not just add them to the same array?  the third parameter of arrayadd is column so something like:

_ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill)
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill2, 1)
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill3 , 2)

,-. .--. ________ .-. .-. ,---. ,-. .-. .-. .-.
|(| / /\ \ |\ /| |__ __||| | | || .-' | |/ / \ \_/ )/
(_) / /__\ \ |(\ / | )| | | `-' | | `-. | | / __ \ (_)
| | | __ | (_)\/ | (_) | | .-. | | .-' | | \ |__| ) (
| | | | |)| | \ / | | | | | |)| | `--. | |) \ | |
`-' |_| (_) | |\/| | `-' /( (_)/( __.' |((_)-' /(_|
'-' '-' (__) (__) (_) (__)

There were all in the same array at one point but I've been trying everything I can think of in order to get this to show the way i want.

i dont understand how placing this data into a single array with three columns, via arrayadd, does not meet the above requirement.  Is there something else you want of this 3 columned array?

You need to add some kind of error checking to your script. Every function sets the return value or macro @error when something went wrong. Check for errors before proceeding to the next statement.

Can you not use your "Select" statement to get whatever you want, in whatever order you want?

Select firstname, lastname, faxnumber from fax

Really?

Is your version of AutoIt from the future?

I get all kinds of errors, not least from this...

While NOT .EOF

It must be, I have no doubt there are errors but the reason i say it works is that when i run it I see my data in a table...all in one column, but it's still a table.

Right now in order to update certain user info I have to go to two serperate spots to update it and I find this annoying. What I'm trying to do is get this data into a MySQL database and use autoit to update this database along with Active Directory. Thanks for the input though, I see if i can add in some error checking.

*Edit here is my original code before i went crazy and started trying wierd things to get those coulmns.

#include "mysql.au3"
#include "array.au3"

$sql = _MySQLConnect('user','password','test','TestSystem')
$row = _Query($sql, "SELECT * FROM fax")
Global $aArray,$aArray2
Global $sFill, $sFill2
Global $aArray_Base [1] [3]
$aArray = $aArray_Base
with $row
While NOT .EOF

   Global $FirstName = .Fields("firstname").value
   Global $LastName = .Fields("lastname").value
   Global $FaxNumber = .Fields("faxnumber").value
   $sFill =$FirstName
   $sFill2 =$LastName
   $sFill3 =$FaxNumber
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill)
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill2, 1)
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill3, 2)
   .MoveNext
   ;MsgBox(0,"TEST",$FirstName)
WEnd
EndWith

_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Test Array")

_MySQLEnd($sql)

I knew it would be something simple, this gets the correct data into the correct spots....for the most part. whatever reason each piece of data is in the correct column but it's one piece per row.

I Figured out how to do what I was looking to do. Here is the code just in case someone else comes searching for something similar:

#include "mysql.au3"
#include "array.au3"

$sql = _MySQLConnect('user','password','table','SQLSystem')
$row = _Query($sql, "SELECT * FROM fax")
Global $aArray,$aArray2
Global $sFill, $sFill2
Global $aArray_Base [1] [3]
$aArray = $aArray_Base
with $row
While NOT .EOF


   Global $FirstName = .Fields("firstname").value
   Global $LastName = .Fields("lastname").value
   Global $FaxNumber = .Fields("faxnumber").value

   Local $sFill[2] [3] = [[$FirstName, $LastName,$FaxNumber]]
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill)
   .MoveNext

WEnd
EndWith


_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Test Array")

      Hello,
       
      I am currently writing a program that parses a massive table from a website, and need a way to add a progress bar while parsing.
      I am currently using the function _IETableWriteToArray($oObj, True) to parse the array. I need the progress bar to update as the table is parsed, not just at the end of the parsing.
      Any help at all would be very much appreciated!
       
      *EDIT --> The array I am left with after parsing is $array[0-50000][16]

      So Im trying to make a simple 2d game and make some sort of collision detection so why not to make a 2 dimensional array but i have no clue how  to write it in multiple lines
      Global $map[5,5] = [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0] something like this but it doesn't work

      #include "..\Include\Array.au3" #include "..\Include\File.au3" #include "..\Include\AutoItConstants.au3" Local $aRetArray Local $sFilePath = "n.csv" _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, ",") ; _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, $FRTA_COUNT, ",") _ArrayDisplay($aRetArray, "Original", Default, 8) The above code shows two versions of _FileReadToArray and both don't work as expected.
      The first one doesn't use the comma as a delimiter. (so I get a single column array)  I tried adding "Default" between $aRetArray and "," then it told me it had an incorrect number of parameters. 

      I looked again at the documentation:
       
      #include <File.au3> _FileReadToArray ( $sFilePath, ByRef $vReturn [, $iFlags = $FRTA_COUNT [, $sDelimiter = ""]] )
      And I with or without the flags params I should be getting a 2D array due to my file being a csv. 
      I then tried a regular flag, $FRTA_COUNT, and it tells me that I'm using a variable $FRTA_COUNT while it's not declared. Tried putting in 1 instead and it told me again, incorrect number of params.

      Hi,
      Recently I have had the need to do a sort and then do a second sort while the item of the first sort stays the same ( double sorting , first on column x then while column x is the same sort column y).
      I did not put much efffort into error checking but so far I did not need it.
      For my applications so far it works perfectly however if someone is willing I want to test this extensivly.
      If anyone has big lists of random stuff to sort could you try this out please?
      #include <Array.au3> ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Name ..........: _ArraySort_Double ; Description ...: ; Syntax ........: _ArraySort_Double (Byref $array[, $first_index = Default[, $second_index = Default[, $ascending = Default]]]) ; Parameters ....: $array - 2d array to sort. ; $first_index - [optional] first column to sort. Default is 0. ; $second_index - [optional] second column to sort. Default is 1. ; $ascending - [optional] ascending/descending.
