Manipulating a function

2 posts in this topic

the code that i have written is extremely long so i will post only the part i am having trouble with. I am trying to make the function "_EncryptionProcess" take the arrays 1 by 1 and then process them. Unfortunately after much reading on this forum i have realised that you cant have functions inside For loops. 
 The location in which the arrays need to be taken is where the "$aArray" is typed, the arrays are stored in this value. The other variable defines the key size being used and the key value being used. 

;Cuts the input up into piece; 
$VariableToBeCut = "12345678"
$aArray = StringRegExp($VariableToBeCut, ".{2}", 3)
MsgBox(0, "die", $aArray[0]) ; personal check to make sure array works


$DataToBeEncrypted=_EncryptionProcess($aArray, $keyvalue, $keysize, 1) ;$aArray needs to be where the different arrays are processed
MsgBox(0, "Encrypted data", $DataToBeEncrypted)

bahjat,

Unfortunately after much reading on this forum i have realised that you cant have functions inside For loops

Really? You cannot define functions inside loops, but there is nothing to prevent you from calling them. And the code you posted should run - although you will need to extract the elements from the array you pass as a parameter within the _EncryptionProcess function.  This shows the how you might do it:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Global $keysize, $keyvalue = "-simulate-encrypted"

$VariableToBeCut = "12345678"
$DataToBeEncrypted = StringRegExp($VariableToBeCut, ".{2}", 3)

; Display original data
_ArrayDisplay($DataToBeEncrypted, "Before", Default, 8)

; Pass array to encryption process
$aDataAfterEncryption = _EncryptionProcess($DataToBeEncrypted, $keyvalue, $keysize, 1) ;$aArray needs to be where the different arrays are processed

; Display returned data
_ArrayDisplay($aDataAfterEncryption, "After", Default, 8)

Func _EncryptionProcess($aArray, $keyvalue, $keysize, $iVal)

    For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1
        ; Display each element
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Unencrypted data", $aArray[$i])
        ; Call a function from inside the loop to encrypt the value
        $aArray[$i] = _Encrypt($aArray[$i])
    Next
    ; Return amended array
    Return $aArray

EndFunc

Func _Encrypt($sString)

    ; Simulate encryption
    $sString = $sString & $keyvalue
    ; Return encrupted value
    Return $sString

EndFunc

Does that help explain how to do what you require?

      As with a lot of programming, the less manual repetition done to achieve the same outcome...the better.
      I package programs for network deployment at the organization I work for. Sometimes these applications require verbose messaging to the user, and sometimes by special request we have to turn that off and deploy silently.
      The way I currently handle these 2 scenarios is this.
      I have a function that builds the splashwin display screen to variable size depending on message length, and displays the desired message to the end user.
      Then at each point throughout my script as I need to make the user aware of what is currently happening, I inject a splashwin function call with the unique message pertaining to that specific event. ie. "Installing Microsoft Office, please wait..."
      In effort to build a more universal script to handle any type of request submitted. I've incorporated a switch command of '/silent'
      If cmdlineraw detects the usage of that switch when the script is triggered it sets a variable flag, ie. $silent = "on"
      Then at every splashwin call I make, I'm prefixing it with an IF statement that checks for the flag, and then does NOT display the message if that flag is "on". Or does display it if its not. Has worked for me just fine. But while I grow my programming skills and look for more streamlined ways of handling areas I find myself creating repetition. I'm curious if I can relocate that flag check. Taking it out of every single splashwin call, and injecting it into the function itself.
      Example of how I currently display or hide the splashwin based on command line...
      If StringInStr($cmdlineraw, "/silent", 0) Then
          $SilentSwitch = "ON"
      EndIf
      If $SilentSwitch = "OFF" Then SplashWin($Uninstalling & $ProductInfo[1][0])
      Some scripts have dozens of those splashwin calls littered throughout, so Is this the best approach I can take already? Or as stated earlier, can I pull the IF statement away from the splashwin call. And left the function as a whole either activate or deactivate as a result of the command line check.

      Hi,
      I wonder if
      AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode = Y can include run information about functions which are called within the main code. So far I noticed in the console that the function itself is called but no specific run information from  inside the function is provided. Is there a chance to show the entire debug log including functions in the console?
      I furthermore noticed a stop of information when a loop is entered. What could be the reason for that?
       
      Thanks for help.

      Is this possible:
      Executing a function from an include, but taking the function name from a gui input and then executing that function using the include:
      #include <Something.au3> ;input reads "Tree" $functionName = GuiCtrlRead($input1) $functionName(1) And the include is gonna have
      Func Tree($x) If $x = 1 Then $this = "text" MsgBox(0,$this,"whatever") EndFunc is it possible?

      Hello, i'm making a little script that lets users enter a question and if the script can't answer to, it ask what would be the answer (a bit like siri on IPhones). And I try to display the "supposed array" I still have an error.. I searched on Google and got nothing looked in the help file too.. I'm here to know if someone have a solution to my error please.
      Here is where $a and $b should become arrays :
      Dim $dossier = @AppDataDir & "\Siri2" Dim $chemin = $dossier & "\data.ini" Global $a = _InfoRead($chemin, 0) Global $b = _InfoRead($chemin, 1) with this function :
      Func _InfoRead($path, $mode = 0) If DirGetSize($dossier) = -1 Then Return SetError(-4) If Not FileExists($chemin) Then Return SetError(-5) Local $readed = IniReadSection($path, "data") If @error Then Return SetError(-3) $size = $readed[0][0] Local $return[$size] For $i = 1 To $size Step 1 $return[$i - 1] = $readed[$i][$mode] Next Return $return EndFunc and the thing that i don't understand is that, after _InfoRead return affected to $a, I can't use _ArrayDisplay because of  error 1 "$aArray is not an array" (and same fpr the variable $b)..
      Can please someone help me to understand why is it doing this ?
