Write data to array

Recommended Posts

topten
for $i = 1 to 10
next

How can I add all the appearing numbers (strings, data) to array? So that later I could say

$i[0] = 1

$i[1] = 2

etc

Note: Here I am showing may be very abstract example. In fact I will have a list of strings which will be appearing from the loop- so how can I get them into array?

topten,

Do you mean something like this?

#include <Array.au3>

Global $aArray[10]

For $i = 1 To 10
    $aArray[$i - 1] = $i

Next

_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Loaded", Default, 8)

I myself not sure about it :)

I will try to explain

For example you are getting some list of words from the loop (regexp)

$infoarray = StringRegExp($info, '(.*?);', 3)

for $i = 0 to Ubound ($infoarray)-1

;  here  $infoarray[i$] is my resulted string

And here I need this string to be written  into some $y, so later when I get $y[0] - I have first string written into $y, and $y[1] - second string written into $y etc

next

 

Something like that ...

topten,

That makes no sense at all. You have an array of results in $infoarray - why do you need to get these values into another array before accessing them? If you will be overwriting the initial array then just copy it into another like this:

#include <Array.au3>

$aInfoArray = StringSplit("0123456789", "")

_ArrayDisplay($aInfoArray, "Initial return", Default, 8)

$aCopyArray = $aInfoArray ; Copy the array

_ArrayDisplay($aCopyArray, "Copy", Default, 8)

If that is not the answer then I suggest you try and write some pseudo-code (plain language logic flow) so that we can better understand what it is you want to do - because if you have trouble formulating it how are we supposed to understand?

I try to paraphrase, may be I have missed something

$data = fileread ("words.txt")

$g = StringRegExp($data, '(.*?);', 3) ; the words are separated by ";"

for $i = 0 to Ubound($g)-1

$g[$i] - here is  every word I am getting from the list

$word = $g[$i]

getspecialdatafromtheword ($word) ; here I am getting special data which is accordingly to this word (my custom function)


;;;;;;;;;;

And here I need   $specialdata write into some $y so that later I could get from $y[0] first $specialdata from $y[1] get second special data from $y[2] get third special data etc
;;;;;;;;;;

next

func     getspecialdatafromtheword ($word)

;;;;;; my function

Return $specialdata

endfunc

I hope this is more clear. Is such possible?

topten,

Perhaps this:

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

; Simulate reading file
$sData = "0123456789"

; Simulate RegEx split into "words"
$g = StringSplit($sData, "", $STR_NOCOUNT)

; The "data" array
_ArrayDisplay($g, "Words", Default, 8)

; Create array to hold "special data" - same size as the data array
Global $y[UBound($g)]


; Now loop though the data
For $i = 0 To UBound($g) - 1

    ; Extract "word"
    $word = $g[$i]
    ; Save "special data" into new array
    $y[$i] = _getspecialdatafromtheword($word)

Next

; The "special data" array
_ArrayDisplay($y, "Special data", Default, 8)

; And to show that they 2 arrays are linked
For $i =  0 To UBound($g) - 1
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, $i, $g[$i] & @CRLF & $y[$i])
Next

Func _getspecialdatafromtheword($sWord)
    ; Get the "special data"
    Return "Special data for " & $sWord
EndFunc

Any closer?

What Melba examplified, or use _ArrayColInsert($g, 1) and store in $g[$i][1] data from word read in $g[$i][0]. That would be simpler IMVHO.

      Hi Virtual People,
      My array works perfectly fine. However, what is the best practice if the line in the array doesn't have the correct amount of columns and if I can add a placeholder?

       
      For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") Next

      hi all,
      reviewing the forum, this thread is applicable: 
       
       
      I wanted to know if there is now a better way to do this?
      In essence, I load a tab delimited txt file into an array (works well). I used tab, as some fields in the original csv contains commas.
      However, I needed autoit to manipulate this array, and output it as a csv.
      IF my array contains items with a comma, without double quotes around the field, then how best do I get a csv out of this?
      My current workaround is to filewritefromarray tab delimited, then open it in excel and save as a csv. I will need to check this to see how the address fields behave that contain a comma.
       
      Any thoughts would be appreciated.

      Hi All,

      I would like to know how you would take a FileLineRead and insert it into an array which then inserts it into Excel?
      One thing to know is the files content is broken up, so I only use half of the content within $FileRead1.
      So its imperative that the $value1, $value2, etc variables be used. 
      Code below:
      $FileRead1 = FileReadLine("C:\temp\sample.txt",1) For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] $value4 = $input[4] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value4, "D1") Next

      Hello,
      I'm trying to write a script that moves copies excel cells into an array. I'll than manipulate the values and send array into another program. 
      I don't want range to be specific to a workbook, or sheet, or set of cells.
      I want user to be able to highlight desired cells and to copy either normally ("Ctrl+C") or by a hotkey ("Alt+C"). 
      Could someone help me with this?
      Thank you,
      I've tried to write the framework: (edited)
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> HotKeySet("!v", "Pastedata") While True Sleep(1000) WEnd func Makearray() local $bArray ;User has cells already copied ;Convert clipboard into an array ;I don;t know how excel stores data to clipboard so don;t know how to bring it into array _Arraydisplay($bArray) MsgBox(0,0,$bArray) return $bArray endfunc func Pastedata() Local $aArray MsgBox(0,0,"wait",1) ;make array based on assumption user has already copied a range to clipboard $aArray = Makearray() ;paste code ;don;t worry about this I got the rest endfunc

      I want to make a while loop, that creates variables based on a array. For thist I created the array $iDsO with the number and the name of folders in an other folder. Every folder has a different name an I want to create variables(arrays) for each folder that show me all the files in that folder. For example: I have the Folder \Folder1. In it there are the Folders \1, \2, \3. In 1, 2 and 3 there are some files(.png). The array for Folder1 is $iDsO and now I want to crate the arrays $iDsO1, $iDsO2 and $iDsO3 with the files in them can I make something like this:
      While $iDs > 0 ;$iDs is the number of files in Folder1>> $iDsO[0] $iDs#here should come the Foldername for example '1'# = _FileListtoArray(@ProgramFilesDir&"\Folder1\"&$iDsO[$iDs]) $iDs = $iDs - 1 Wend So that in the End I have three variabels ($iDs1, $iDs2 and $iDs3)
       
      Is this posible or if not what could I do instead ( I don´t know the number of folders in Folder1 in the begining).
