So I was looking everywhere about getting an array's number of slots in use... and found nothing.

Is this even possible? for example

Global $array[5]

$array[1] = "1 slot in use"

$arrayslotsinuse = ArrayGetSlotsInUse($array)

Thanks in advance :)

...I tried making a counter but didn't work so well.. (it crashed app)

TheNewHunter,

UBound will tell you how many elements are in the array, but not how many are "in use" - often the coder uses the [0] element to keep a count as the array fills.

If you're looking to include a counter, I would suggest creating a function for adding data to your array.

ReDim is your friend here! 

Example;

#Include<Array.au3> ;Used to display results (_ArrayDisplay)
local $array[1] ; Initialise the array

;Now lets add something to it
AddValueToArray($array,"Dave")
AddValueToArray($array,"Phil")
AddValueToArray($array,"Jake")
_ArrayDisplay($Array) ;Show Results
;Now lets remove Phil, But we want our counter and array to remain neat
RemValueFromArray($array,"Phil")
_ArrayDisplay($Array) ;Show Results



func AddValueToArray( byRef $iArray,$iValue)
    local $uBound = uBound($iArray,1) ;Get max element number of array
    reDim $iArray[$uBound + 1] ;Re Dimension the array, Without removing information
    $Array[$uBound] = $iValue ; Add the new value
    $Array[0] += 1 ; Increment the counter by 1
EndFunc

Func RemValueFromArray( byRef $iArray,$iValue)
    local $tArray = $iArray ;Store data in a temporary array
    Dim $iArray[1] ;Reset the array to empty (so we can rebuild it)
    for $i = 1 to $tArray[0] ;Loop through temporary array
        if $tArray[$i] = $iValue then ContinueLoop ;We've found the remove value! Lets continue the loop and ignore it.
        AddValueToArray($iArray,$tArray[$i]) ;The above line was false, So we can run the AddValueToArray Command to add the data
    Next ;Continue the for loop
EndFunc

Cheers

      I have a spreadsheet - daily routine which has two columns: activity and time as shown here
      | Activity             | Time     | |----------------------|----------| | Sleep               |  6:00 am | | Toilet              |  6:15 am | | Get ready for gym  |  6:30 am | | Exercise            |  7:50 am | | ... more things      |  9:00 pm | | ... still more       | 10:45 pm | | Sleep               |  6:00 am |   I wanted to find out, say in C1 which activity is current for me using now() I.e., if it’s 6:45am on my watch, it should show me Exercise  in C1 Thanks to Adam D. PE, this formula works like magic to get the result =VLOOKUP(MOD(NOW(),1),{B2:B,A2:A},2,1)   Now, I want to reproduce same result in autoit, how to do that? To have easy solution say, I copy-paste spreadsheet data in array directly in code, right? Use for loop and run the above vlookup function and show the answer using tooltip. How to achieve this? please help.

      I have an Autoit script that lists files from a folder into an array list. Is there a way to separate the filenames by an underscore and include the id, version, name and date into separate columns in Excel.
      Example of filename:
      12345_v1.0_TEST Name [12345]_01.01.2022.html
      12345 would be in one column
      v1.0 would be in another column
      TEST Name [12345] would be in another column
      01.01.2022 would be in another column
      .html would be in another column
      Note: filenames always change each day.
      Here is my code that lists the files into column C and then writes the column Headers into Column D, E, F, G. Just need some help with separating them into columns by the _ delimiter

      Usually when I collect data from DataBase I need to give EndUser a possibility to select rows which should be taken in the processing loop.
      I was searching on the forum and I'm not able to find any UDF or even example of how to select data from array.
      I have my own solutions but I think they are not worth posting on the forum as it is very old code and I am looking for a better solution.

      Could anybody point me to some examples/solutions ?

      Thank you in advance.

      I have a string containing the full path of an executable and an array of executables without their paths. I am trying to compare the string to the list in the array and if a match is found, remove it from the array. The entry get removed from the array successfully, and after checking its return result, uses it to update the ubound if it succeeded, but it doesn't want to update to the new value. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? It acts like it is read-only.
      #include <Array.au3> #include <File.au3> Local $sApp_Exe = "F:\App\Nextcloud\nextcloud.exe" Local $aWaitForEXEX = [3, "Nextcloud.exe", "nextcloudcmd.exe", "QtWebEngineProcess.exe"] For $h = 1 To $aWaitForEXEX[0] If StringInStr($sApp_Exe, $aWaitForEXEX[$h]) <> 0 Then $iRet = _ArrayDelete($aWaitForEXEX, $h) If $iRet <> -1 Then $aWaitForEXEX[0] = $iRet ;this line doesn't work. $aWaitForEXEX[0] doesn't update and shortly gives Error: Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.: _ArrayDisplay($aWaitForEXEX) EndIf Next

      #Include <Array.au3> #include <Constants.au3> $s = FileRead("2.txt") Local $w = StringRegExp($s, '(?is)(\b\w+\b)(?!.*\b\1\b)', 3) _ArrayColInsert($w, 1) For $i = 0 to UBound($w)-1 StringRegExpReplace($s, '(?i)\b' & $w[$i][0] & '\b', $w[$i][0]) $w[$i][1] = @extended Next _ArraySort($w, 1, 0, 0, 1) _ArrayDisplay($w) i have this script that returns 3 columns  
       
      i need to copy the  Col 0 and Col 1 as text to paste on notepad or excel
      you will have to create a "copy" button if possible
      array.au3 2.txt
