Array in Array

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I think i have a silly question, but iam stuck and i need some help :)

I have the following code;

; Article
Global $configfile_artikel[25]
local $cx = 0

Do

Local $configfile_artikel[$cx] = StringSplit($configfile_contents[$cx+2], "=", 0)

$cx = $cx + 1

Until $cx = 23

EndIf

But if i execute this code, i will get an error; Missing subscript dimensions in "Dim" statement.

 

I have tried several codes, but i need to create an array in an array and it is failing,.

 

Can you guys help me with this?

 

Thanks!

Could you post a working reproducer? That one is broken on many points...

Here is a working example of arrays in arrays:

#include <Array.au3>

Global $firstInner[2] = ["hi", "bye"]
Global $secondInner[2] = ["one", "two"]
Global $outer[2] = [$firstInner, $secondInner]

For $ar In $outer
    _ArrayDisplay($ar)
Next

/edit: exit beat me :)

Hi all,

Thanks for the examples, here is a complete script!

#include <FileConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <Crypt.au3>

#include <GuiButton.au3>

; Bestaat config file?
Local $iFileExists = FileExists("favotool.conf")

If $iFileExists = 1 Then

; Kijk of configfile bestaat, zoja roep gegevens op
Local $configfile = FileRead("favotool.conf")
Local $configfile_contents = StringSplit($configfile, @CRLF, 0)

; Artikelen
Global $configfile_artikel[25]
local $cx = 0

Do

Local $configfile_artikel[$cx] = StringSplit($configfile_contents[$cx+2], "=", 0)

$cx = $cx + 1

Until $cx = 23

EndIf

I am trying to call a variable with;

$xc = 0

Do

GUICtrlCreateInput($configfile_artikel_output[$xc][2],30,$height,90,20,0x0001)

$xc = $xc + 1

Until $xc = 23

Blueman,

I have no idea why you are using all those includes - here is a version which seems to work:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <StringConstants.au3>

; Bestaat config file?
Local $iFileExists = FileExists("favotool.conf")

If $iFileExists = 1 Then

    ; Kijk of configfile bestaat, zoja roep gegevens op
    Local $configfile = FileRead("favotool.conf")
    Local $configfile_contents = StringSplit($configfile, @CRLF, $STR_ENTIRESPLIT) ; If you want each line in an element you need the $STR_ENTIRESPLIT flag
    _ArrayDisplay($configfile_contents, "Your way", Default, 8)

    ; But it is much easier to do this
    Local $configfile_contents
    _FileReadToArray("favotool.conf", $configfile_contents)
    _ArrayDisplay($configfile_contents, "Easy way", Default, 8)

    ; Artikelen

    Global $configfile_artikel[25]
    Local $cx = 0

    Do

        $configfile_artikel[$cx] = StringSplit($configfile_contents[$cx + 2], "=")

        $cx = $cx + 1

    Until $cx = 23

    ; The array holding the arrays
    _ArrayDisplay($configfile_artikel, "", Default, 8)
    ; An internal array
    _ArrayDisplay($configfile_artikel[9], "", Default, 8)

EndIf

Blueman,

2 errors made your code wrong :

- as Melba said,  StringSplit(..., @CRLF, 1) it needs the flag 1 ( = $STR_ENTIRESPLIT) because CRLF contains 2 chars (CR+LF)
- Local $configfile_artikel[$cx]  (in the Do  loop) means a declaration so you get the "Missing subscript dimensions" error

Use flag 1 in the StringSplit, remove the "Local" and the code works  :)

Thanks guys, works like a charm!

Now i have to figure out how to get the value from eg; $configfile_artikel[$cx][2]

But i think thats simple :)

Thanks again!

EDIT: I used _ArrayToString($configfile_artikel[$cx], "", 2, 2) For that :)

Blueman,

how to get the value from eg; $configfile_artikel[$cx][2]

($configfile_artikel[$cx])[2]

Note the ( ) around the first section.

Here another example:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Version=b

#include <Array.au3>

Global $sText = "This is an example for array in an array :-)"
Global $aArray_Main[2] = ["Index = 0", StringSplit($sText, " ", 2)]

ConsoleWrite("Modifying value " & ($aArray_Main[1])[9] & @CRLF)
_ArrayMod($aArray_Main[1], ";-)", 9) ;modify 9th entry in nested array :-) -> ;-)

_ArrayDisplay($aArray_Main[1], "Sub Array")

Func _ArrayMod(ByRef $aArray, $vValue, $iIndex) ;no error checks!
    $aArray[$iIndex] = $vValue
EndFunc

I didn't know that it's possible to put an array in an array.

Are there any benefits using this method instead of 2D-Arrays?

​You generally don't want to do this, as it makes things harder because accessing elements in the internal array isn't as easy to code as accessing 2D array elements.

I think it's partly a design choice. Suppose you intend to Redim the sub-arrays - using a 2D array could turn out to be a nightmare in this case. In most normal cases I would prefer to use a single multidimensional array.
