When an Array isn't full

Recommended Posts

bahjat

So i am practising AutoIt and i would like to split up a large message into arrays. The problem is that the message can be any number of bits long. Therefore the last array size will not be equal to the others. Can someone please help me on this, i am kind of confused what to do. I want it to recognise the last array so it still works. Please help, i am desperate. If anything needs clearing up i can clear it up. I look forward to hearing from you guys

#include-Once
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Crypt.au3>


;;****Cutting the message up into manageable pices
;;**Input variable is $VariabletoBecut***

$VariableToBeCut = "1234567891011"
$ArrayForMessage = StringRegExp($VariableToBeCut, ".{2}", 3)

;;****Output variable is $Arrayformessage***

  For $ProcessingMessage = 0 To 28
    $Cut = $ArrayForMessage[$ProcessingMessage]
    MsgBox (0, "counting", $Cut)
 Next


;;;***Output variable is $cut****

bahjat,

Please pay attention to where you post - the "Dev Chat" section where you started this thread is not for general support questions.  I have moved it for you, but would ask you to be more careful in future.

Use UBound to get the size of the returned array and use that to limit the loop cycles.

Ah ok sorry, i will keep that in mind next time i post. I was on the lines of thinking "I am developing my code so better put it on the developing chat section" lol 

​I have been experimenting with the "Redim" function to redetermine the final array but i have had no luck in doing this. I am so stuck on this. 
After using the Ubound function and the Redim function the new code i come up with is stated below. It still doesn't seem to be doing what i want it to do, which is show me the last value (number 7) and that's it. Can you help me please?

#include-Once
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Crypt.au3>
;;****Cutting the message up into manageable pices
;;**Input variable is $VariabletoBecut***

$VariableToBeCut = "1234567"
$ArrayForMessage = StringRegExp($VariableToBeCut, ".{3}", 3)

;;****Output variable is $Arrayformessage***
  For $ProcessingMessage = 0 To 3
    $Cut = $ArrayForMessage[$ProcessingMessage]
         ReDim $Arrayformessage[UBound($Arrayformessage) + 2];
    MsgBox (0, "counting", $Cut)
Next

I now read back, and you want to play with arrays.   However, 7 is not returned in that resulting array so that loop would never result with it.

$VariableToBeCut = "1234567"
msgbox(0, '' , StringRegExpReplace($VariableToBeCut, ".{3}" , ""))

 

something like this for ubound is what i would imagine

$VariableToBeCut = "12345678"
$aArray = StringRegExp($VariableToBeCut, ".{2}", 3)
msgbox(0, '' , $aArray[ubound($aArray) - 1])

​Thank you, your help is much appreciated. I am a very slow learner but i am enjoying this programming language :) .
Once again your help is much appreciated

See comments in script.   Hope this helps.

Local $VariableToBeCut = "1234567891011"
;$ArrayForMessage = StringRegExp($VariableToBeCut, ".{2}", 3) ; Will only match 2 characters
$ArrayForMessage = StringRegExp($VariableToBeCut, ".{1,2}", 3) ; Being greedy by default, will match the maximum (2 characters). But will match 1 character when there is only 1 character to match.

For $ProcessingMessage = 0 To UBound($ArrayForMessage) - 1
    $Cut = $ArrayForMessage[$ProcessingMessage]
    ;MsgBox(0, "counting", $Cut)
    ConsoleWrite($Cut & @LF)
Next

This is one of the nicest codes i have seen written so far, thankyou for your help. It is most appreciated, would it be possible to pick your brain on another problem i am having?

See comments in script.   Hope this helps.

      Associative Array Functions
      I've seen a couple of UDFs for this on the forum. One of them I quite like. But it's still nearly not as good as this method, IMHO.
      I don't recall if I discovered the "Scripting.Dictionary" COM object myself or if I got the original base code from somewhere online. I have recently searched the web (and here) hard for any AutoIt references to this, other than my own over the years I've been using this (in ffe, etc..), and I can find nothing, so I dunno. If anyone does, I'd love to give credit where it's due; this is some cute stuff! It could actually be all my own work! lol
      At any rate, it's too useful to not have posted somewhere at autoitscript.com, so I've put together a wee demo.
      For those who haven't heard of the COM "Scripting.Dictionary".. 
      If you've ever coded in Perl or PHP (and many other languages), you know how useful associative arrays are. Basically, rather than having to iterate through an array to discover it's values, with an associative array you simply pluck values out by their key "names".
      I've added a few functions over the years, tweaked and tuned, and this now represent pretty much everything you need to easily work with associative arrays in AutoIt. En-joy!
      The main selling point of this approach is its simplicity and weight. I mean, look at how much code it takes to work with associative arrays! The demo is bigger than all the functions put together! The other selling point is that we are using Windows' built-in COM object functions which are at least theoretically, fast and robust.
      I've used it many times without issues, anyhow, here goes..
      ; Associative arrays in AutoIt? Hells yeah! ; Initialize your array ... global $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "AAError") ; Initialize a COM error handler ; first example, simple. global $simple AAInit($simple) AAAdd($simple, "John", "Baptist") AAAdd($simple, "Mary", "Lady Of The Night") AAAdd($simple, "Trump", "Silly Man-Child") AAList($simple) debug("It is said that Trump is a " & AAGetItem($simple, "Trump") & ".", @ScriptLineNumber);debug debug("") ; slightly more interesting.. $ini_path = "AA_Test.ini" ; Put this prefs section in your ini file.. ; [test] ; foo=foo value ; foo2=foo2 value ; bar=bar value ; bar2=bar2 value global $associative_array AAInit($associative_array) ; We are going to convert this 2D array into a cute associative array where we ; can access the values by simply using their respective key names.. $test_array = IniReadSection($ini_path, "test") for $z = 1 to 2 ; do it twice, to show that the items are *really* there! for $i = 1 to $test_array[0][0] $key_name = $test_array[$i][0] debug("Adding '" & $key_name & "'..");debug ; key already exists in "$associative_array", use the pre-determined value.. if AAExists($associative_array, $key_name) then $this_value = AAGetItem($associative_array, $key_name) debug("key_name ALREADY EXISTS! : =>" & $key_name & "<=" , @ScriptLineNumber);debug else $this_value = $test_array[$i][1] ; store left=right value pair in AA if $this_value then AAAdd($associative_array, $key_name, $this_value) endif endif next next debug(@CRLF & "Array Count: =>" & AACount($associative_array) & "<=" , @ScriptLineNumber);debug AAList($associative_array) debug(@CRLF & "Removing 'foo'..");debug AARemove($associative_array, "foo") debug(@CRLF & "Array Count: =>" & AACount($associative_array) & "<=" , @ScriptLineNumber);debug AAList($associative_array) debug(@CRLF & "Removing 'bar'..");debug AARemove($associative_array, "bar") debug(@CRLF & "Array Count: =>" & AACount($associative_array) & "<=" , @ScriptLineNumber);debug AAList($associative_array) quit() func quit() AAWipe($associative_array) AAWipe($simple) endfunc ;; Begin AA Functions func AAInit(ByRef $dict_obj) $dict_obj = ObjCreate("Scripting.Dictionary") endfunc ; Adds a key and item pair to a Dictionary object.. func AAAdd(ByRef $dict_obj, $key, $val) $dict_obj.Add($key, $val) If @error Then return SetError(1, 1, -1) endfunc ; Removes a key and item pair from a Dictionary object.. func AARemove(ByRef $dict_obj, $key) $dict_obj.Remove($key) If @error Then return SetError(1, 1, -1) endfunc ; Returns true if a specified key exists in the associative array, false if not.. func AAExists(ByRef $dict_obj, $key) return $dict_obj.Exists($key) endfunc ; Returns a value for a specified key name in the associative array.. func AAGetItem(ByRef $dict_obj, $key) return $dict_obj.Item($key) endfunc ; Returns the total number of keys in the array.. func AACount(ByRef $dict_obj) return $dict_obj.Count endfunc ; List all the "Key" > "Item" pairs in the array.. func AAList(ByRef $dict_obj) debug("AAList: =>", @ScriptLineNumber);debug local $k = $dict_obj.Keys ; Get the keys ; local $a = $dict_obj.Items ; Get the items for $i = 0 to AACount($dict_obj) -1 ; Iterate the array debug($k[$i] & " ==> " & AAGetItem($dict_obj, $k[$i])) next endfunc ; Wipe the array, obviously. func AAWipe(ByRef $dict_obj) $dict_obj.RemoveAll() endfunc ; Oh oh! func AAError() Local $err = $oMyError.number If $err = 0 Then $err = -1 SetError($err) ; to check for after this function returns endfunc ;; End AA Functions. ; debug() (trimmed-down version) ; ; provides quick debug report in your console.. func debug($d_string, $ln=false) local $pre ; For Jump-to-Line in Notepad++ if $ln then $pre = "(" & $ln & ") " & @Tab ConsoleWrite($pre & $d_string & @CRLF) endfunc

      Hello,
      Is there a way wherein I can access the data from an array coming from an Excel file then have it assigned on to a variable?
      Below is a snippet of my current code. For now, it just reads and outputs the data from the excel file and have it displayed via an array.
      #include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False) If @error Then Exit MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error creating application object." & @CRLF & "Error: " & @error & " Extends: " & @extended) ; Open Excel Woorkbook and return object Local $sWorkbook = @ScriptDir & "\Excel Files\Test Data.xlsx" Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sWorkbook, False, True) If @error Then MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error opening workbook'" & $sWorkbook & ".'" & @CRLF & "Error: " & @error & "Extends: " & @extended) _Excel_Close($oExcel) Exit EndIf Local $aResult = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook) ; Error Trapping If @error Then MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error reading data from '" & $sWorkbook & ".'" & @CRLF & "Error: " & @error & " Extends: " & @extended) _Excel_Close($oExcel) Exit EndIf _ArrayDisplay($aResult) My Excel file has values from Column A to H with values from 1 to 30, what I desired to do is have the value in "A7" assigned on to a variable. 
       
      Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      i have a 3d array that is [10][20][6] for now lets assume that its [3][3][3] so it looks something like this 
      [[[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3]], [[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3]], [[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3]]] i need to add another 1d  array to the position [2][3] ( i hope its clear) so it becomes like this 
      [[[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3]], [[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3]], [[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[4,5,6]]] and i have no idea how

      Hi, i'm currently facing problems with understanding how arrays work, or atleast a few commands that alter arrays.
      My current situation is:
      1. I'm taking the process list and putting it all in an array
      2. I want to remove the boring common windows processes
      3. Profit
      And i'm currently stuck on step 2, while i already found this thread it dosn't seem that i can make it do what i want.
      Current code:
      Local $PList = ProcessList() Local $RL[6] = ["smss.exe", "csrss.exe", "svchost.exe", "iexplore.exe", "chrome.exe", "conhost.exe"] Sleep(1) For $i=1 To Ubound($RL)-1 Sleep(1) While Not @Error $iIndex = _ArraySearch($PList, $RL[$i], 1, 0, 0, 1) _ArrayDelete($PList, $iIndex) WEnd Next It seems to remove all but smss.exe from the array list unless i have it two times in the array.
       
      Note: The sleep(1) is there to clear the error else the command wont fire for the rest of the array, any other way of doing it?
