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.

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

      Hi Virtual People,
      My array works perfectly fine. However, what is the best practice if the line in the array doesn't have the correct amount of columns and if I can add a placeholder?

       
      For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") Next

      hi all,
      reviewing the forum, this thread is applicable: 
       
       
      I wanted to know if there is now a better way to do this?
      In essence, I load a tab delimited txt file into an array (works well). I used tab, as some fields in the original csv contains commas.
      However, I needed autoit to manipulate this array, and output it as a csv.
      IF my array contains items with a comma, without double quotes around the field, then how best do I get a csv out of this?
      My current workaround is to filewritefromarray tab delimited, then open it in excel and save as a csv. I will need to check this to see how the address fields behave that contain a comma.
       
      Any thoughts would be appreciated.

      Hi All,

      I would like to know how you would take a FileLineRead and insert it into an array which then inserts it into Excel?
      One thing to know is the files content is broken up, so I only use half of the content within $FileRead1.
      So its imperative that the $value1, $value2, etc variables be used. 
      Code below:
      $FileRead1 = FileReadLine("C:\temp\sample.txt",1) For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] $value4 = $input[4] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value4, "D1") Next

      Hello,
      I'm trying to write a script that moves copies excel cells into an array. I'll than manipulate the values and send array into another program. 
      I don't want range to be specific to a workbook, or sheet, or set of cells.
      I want user to be able to highlight desired cells and to copy either normally ("Ctrl+C") or by a hotkey ("Alt+C"). 
      Could someone help me with this?
      Thank you,
      I've tried to write the framework: (edited)
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> HotKeySet("!v", "Pastedata") While True Sleep(1000) WEnd func Makearray() local $bArray ;User has cells already copied ;Convert clipboard into an array ;I don;t know how excel stores data to clipboard so don;t know how to bring it into array _Arraydisplay($bArray) MsgBox(0,0,$bArray) return $bArray endfunc func Pastedata() Local $aArray MsgBox(0,0,"wait",1) ;make array based on assumption user has already copied a range to clipboard $aArray = Makearray() ;paste code ;don;t worry about this I got the rest endfunc

      I want to make a while loop, that creates variables based on a array. For thist I created the array $iDsO with the number and the name of folders in an other folder. Every folder has a different name an I want to create variables(arrays) for each folder that show me all the files in that folder. For example: I have the Folder \Folder1. In it there are the Folders \1, \2, \3. In 1, 2 and 3 there are some files(.png). The array for Folder1 is $iDsO and now I want to crate the arrays $iDsO1, $iDsO2 and $iDsO3 with the files in them can I make something like this:
      While $iDs > 0 ;$iDs is the number of files in Folder1>> $iDsO[0] $iDs#here should come the Foldername for example '1'# = _FileListtoArray(@ProgramFilesDir&"\Folder1\"&$iDsO[$iDs]) $iDs = $iDs - 1 Wend So that in the End I have three variabels ($iDs1, $iDs2 and $iDs3)
       
      Is this posible or if not what could I do instead ( I don´t know the number of folders in Folder1 in the begining).
