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?

      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. Default is 1. ; Return values .: 1 if no errors occured , -1 if errors occured ; Author ........: Ternal ; Remarks .......: Needs excessive testing. ; Related .......: _arraysort() ; =============================================================================================================================== Func _ArraySort_Double (byref $array, $first_index = Default, $second_index = Default, $ascending = Default) Local $temp_value Local $counter = 1 If UBound($array, $UBOUND_DIMENSIONS) <> 2 Then MsgBox(0, "error", "error") return -1 EndIf If $first_index = Default Then $first_index = 0 If $second_index = Default Then $second_index = 1 If $ascending = Default Then $ascending = 1 _ArraySort($array, $ascending, 0, 0, $first_index); you can alter settings of primary sort here If @error Then MsgBox(0, "error", @error) return -1 EndIf $temp_value = $array[0][$first_index] For $x = 1 to UBound($array, 1) - 1 If Mod( $x, 10000) = 0 Then ConsoleWrite("at " & $x & " of a total : " & UBound($array, 1) & @CRLF) If $array[$x][$first_index] = $temp_value Then $counter+= 1 If $x = UBound($array, 1) - 1 Then; do last line here(if last line is not a new item) _ArraySort($array, $ascending, $x - $counter, $x, $second_index);you can alter settings of secondary sort here(don't forget to place line 34 the exact same) If @error Then MsgBox(0, "error", @error) return -1 EndIf EndIf Else If $counter > 0 Then ;at least 2 of the same _ArraySort($array, $ascending, $x - $counter, $x - 1, $second_index);you can alter settings of secondary sort here(don't forget to place line 29 the exact same) If @error Then MsgBox(0, "error", @error) return -1 EndIf $counter = 1 EndIf EndIf $temp_value = $array[$x][$first_index] Next Return 1 EndFunc Kind regards, Ternal

      So I've made this script that detects how long i have held down my left mouse button for and stores the information in an array and then sorts its using _ArraySort but the output is half sorted half broken.
      Here's my script:
      HotKeySet("{F1}","_exit") #include <Misc.au3> #include <Timers.au3> #include <Array.au3> Local $dll = DllOpen("user32.dll") $on = False Global $array[0] While(1) If _IsPressed(01,$dll) Then $timer = _Timer_Init() While _IsPressed(01,$dll) Sleep(1) WEnd $time = _Timer_Diff($timer) _ArrayAdd($array,"Time: " & Floor($time) & " ms") ;~ ConsoleWrite("Time: " & Floor($time) & " ms" & @CRLF) EndIf Sleep(50) WEnd Func _exit() _ArraySort($array) _ArrayDisplay($array) Exit EndFunc And the output:

      See how its not sorted?  What is the problem here?
