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.

      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.

      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)
