Associative Array Functions
I've seen a couple of UDFs for this on the forum. One of them I quite like. But it's still nearly not as good as this method, IMHO.
I don't recall if I discovered the "Scripting.Dictionary" COM object myself or if I got the original base code from somewhere online. I have recently searched the web (and here) hard for any AutoIt references to this, other than my own over the years I've been using this (in ffe, etc..), and I can find nothing, so I dunno. If anyone does, I'd love to give credit where it's due; this is some cute stuff! It could actually be all my own work! lol
At any rate, it's too useful to not have posted somewhere at autoitscript.com, so I've put together a wee demo.
For those who haven't heard of the COM "Scripting.Dictionary"..
If you've ever coded in Perl or PHP (and many other languages), you know how useful associative arrays are. Basically, rather than having to iterate through an array to discover it's values, with an associative array you simply pluck values out by their key "names".
I've added a few functions over the years, tweaked and tuned, and this now represent pretty much everything you need to easily work with associative arrays in AutoIt. En-joy!
The main selling point of this approach is its simplicity and weight. I mean, look at how much code it takes to work with associative arrays! The demo is bigger than all the functions put together! The other selling point is that we are using Windows' built-in COM object functions which are at least theoretically, fast and robust.
I've used it many times without issues, anyhow, here goes..

Is there a way wherein I can access the data from an array coming from an Excel file then have it assigned on to a variable?
Below is a snippet of my current code. For now, it just reads and outputs the data from the excel file and have it displayed via an array.
#include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False) If @error Then Exit MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error creating application object." & @CRLF & "Error: " & @error & " Extends: " & @extended) ; Open Excel Woorkbook and return object Local $sWorkbook = @ScriptDir & "\Excel Files\Test Data.xlsx" Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sWorkbook, False, True) If @error Then MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error opening workbook'" & $sWorkbook & ".'" & @CRLF & "Error: " & @error & "Extends: " & @extended) _Excel_Close($oExcel) Exit EndIf Local $aResult = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook) ; Error Trapping If @error Then MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error reading data from '" & $sWorkbook & ".'" & @CRLF & "Error: " & @error & " Extends: " & @extended) _Excel_Close($oExcel) Exit EndIf _ArrayDisplay($aResult) My Excel file has values from Column A to H with values from 1 to 30, what I desired to do is have the value in "A7" assigned on to a variable.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I was wondering if someone can help me to create an AutoIT script which can create a ticket in a TopDesk environment.
The API is wel documented, but i have not enough knowlegde at this moment to get this up from the ground. If someone could help me or if i could hire / pay someone to help me with this, that would be great.
Information about the API can be found here: https://developers.topdesk.com/
Is there a place where i maybe can hire AutoIT professionals to help me with this?
On freelancer.com is an option, but there are alot of people responding which doesn't know a thing about AutoIT.
i have a 3d array that is  for now lets assume that its  so it looks something like this
[[[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3]], [[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3]], [[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3]]] i need to add another 1d array to the position  ( i hope its clear) so it becomes like this
[[[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3]], [[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3]], [[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[1,2,3],[4,5,6]]] and i have no idea how
