_ArrayFindAll doesn't work with variable :(


Recommended Posts

Hello again dear AutoIt Community.

Today I have a problem regarding Arrays. The faulty code is shown below.

$oIE = _IECreate($idURL, 0, 1, 1, 0)
_IELoadWait($oIE)

$links = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)

Global $aTxt[1]

Local $iIndex = 0

For $link in $links
   _ArrayInsert($aTxt, $iIndex, $link.innerText)
   $iIndex += 1
   ConsoleWrite("$Number of Texts (links) = " & $iIndex & @CRLF)
Next

If IsArray($aTxt) Then
   _ArrayDisplay($aTxt, "1D array")
EndIf

;This works
;If _ArrayFindAll($aTxt, "Fairy") Then
;   MsgBox(0, "Success", "Found all instances and saved it in an array (apparently), BUT WHERE?")
;EndIf

;This results in an error
Local $aiResult = _ArrayFindAll($aTxt, "Fairy")

If IsArray($aiResult) Then
   _ArrayDisplay($aiResult)
Else
   MsgBox(0, @error, "$aiResult is not an array." & @CRLF & "Error Code " & $aiResult)
EndIf

ConsoleWrite("The code executed without errors." & @CRLF)
Exit

The symptoms I'm experiencing are that I cannot get hold of an array that should have been created by "_ArrayFindAll". The only thing I'm presented with is an error code "-1" (sets the @error flag to non-zero).

I'd be very grateful for anyone willing to help out. Many Thanks in advance,

Also to add, There is certainly at least a dozen of instances where the Substring "Fairy" appears, so that's not the problem as I see it.

Well, without the URL I could only throw shit on a wall, but you are improperly using the return of _arrayfindall()

 

You can't:

If _ArrayFindAll($aTxt, "Fairy") Then
       MsgBox(0, "Success", "Found all instances and saved it in an array (apparently), BUT WHERE?")
EndIf

Because that's not how the return of _ArrayFindAll Works.  Just look at this code:  

#include <Array.au3>

Global $aTxt[0]

_ArrayAdd($aTxt,"")
_ArrayAdd($aTxt,"")
_ArrayAdd($aTxt,"")
_ArrayAdd($aTxt,"")
_ArrayAdd($aTxt,"")

Local $iIndex = 0

If IsArray($aTxt) Then
   _ArrayDisplay($aTxt, "1D array")
EndIf

;This works
If _ArrayFindAll($aTxt, "Fairy") Then
       MsgBox(0, "Success", "Found all instances and saved it in an array (apparently), BUT WHERE?")
EndIf

;This results in an error
Local $aiResult = _ArrayFindAll($aTxt, "Fairy")

If IsArray($aiResult) Then
   _ArrayDisplay($aiResult)
Else
   MsgBox(0, @error, "$aiResult is not an array." & @CRLF & "Error Code " & $aiResult)
EndIf

ConsoleWrite("The code executed without errors." & @CRLF)
Exit

Clearly there is no "Fairy" in the array, but the message box displays.

 

This works just fine:

#include <Array.au3>

Global $aTxt[0]

_ArrayAdd($aTxt,"Fairy")
_ArrayAdd($aTxt,"")
_ArrayAdd($aTxt,"Fairy")
_ArrayAdd($aTxt,"")
_ArrayAdd($aTxt,"Fairy")

Local $iIndex = 0

If IsArray($aTxt) Then
   _ArrayDisplay($aTxt, "1D array")
EndIf

;This results in an error
Local $aiResult = _ArrayFindAll($aTxt, "Fairy")

If IsArray($aiResult) Then
   _ArrayDisplay($aiResult)
Else
   MsgBox(0, @error, "$aiResult is not an array." & @CRLF & "Error Code " & $aiResult)
EndIf

ConsoleWrite("The code executed without errors." & @CRLF)
Exit

So clearly the problem is the wall. (your source array)

      #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

      I have a dataset like this, (a strubg)
      Username: User1 Type: Admin RegDate: 1999 Username: User2 Type: User RegDate: 2000 How to make a 2 dimensional array that I can display with _ArrayDisplay?
      This would be a perfect 2D array to represent my data:
      Username           Tpye RegDate User1              Admin 1999 User2              User 2000   If you run this Powershell this powershell command, you can get this dataset that I am talking about:
      Get-LocalUser | Select * With this code you can try it to read into a string:
      #include <GuiConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include "GUIListViewEx.au3" #include <Array.au3> ; Just for display in example #RequireAdmin #Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=y #EndRegion $sCommand = "powershell.exe Get-LocalUser | Select *" Local $iPid = Run($sCommand, @WorkingDir , @SW_SHOW , $STDOUT_CHILD) ProcessWaitClose($iPid) Local $sOutput = StdoutRead($iPID) ConsoleWrite($sOutput) How can I correctly split $sOutput into a 2D array (with the above mentioned layout) that I can display and I work with?

      My solution is to write nested arrays without copying.
      The problem was described hier.
       
      Function:

      $sCommands1 = 'powershell.exe Get-ChildItem' $iPid = run($sCommands1   , @WorkingDir , @SW_SHOW , 0x2) $sOutput = ""  While 1     $sOutput &= StdoutRead($iPID)         If @error Then             ExitLoop         EndIf  WEnd ;~ msgbox(0, '' , $sOutput) ConsoleWrite("$sOutput") ConsoleWrite($sOutput) ConsoleWrite(@CRLF) $aOutput = stringsplit($sOutput ,@LF , 2) For $i=0 To  UBound($aOutput) - 1 Step 1     ConsoleWrite($aOutput[$i]) Next The script above reads the whole directory into a one dimensional array, but I need to work with the array, so I need to split the array into multiple dimensions.
      I have already read some forum answers here, and I have already tried these commands:
       
      Are there any way to use the $aOutput variable like in PowerShell:
      PowerShell:
      $a = Get-ChildItem $a.Mode I imagine this in AutoIt  $aOutput
      ConsoleWrite($aOutput[i].Mode) Or if I split this command into 2 dimension like:
      For $i To UBound($aOutput)-1 Step 1 ConsoleWrite($aOutput[$i][1]) ConsoleWrite($aOutput[$i][2]) Next

      Please help with this 3D Array the first example works the secound doesn't.
      Need help to understand how Arrays work.
      Many thanks in advance
      ;First Example Dim $aArray[2][2][2] $aArray[0][0][0] = 1 $aArray[0][0][1] = 2 $aArray[0][1][0] = 3 $aArray[0][1][1] = 4 $aArray[1][0][0] = 5 $aArray[1][0][1] = 6 $aArray[1][1][0] = 7 $aArray[1][1][1] = 8 For $a = 0 to 1 for $b = 0 to 1 for $c = 0 to 1 ConsoleWrite($aArray[$a][$b][$c] & @CRLF) Next Next Next ;Secound Example Local $aArraym [2][2][2]=[[[1,2,],[3,4],[5,6],[7,8]]] For $a = 0 to 1 for $b = 0 to 1 for $c = 0 to 1 ConsoleWrite($aArraym[$a][$b][$c] & @CRLF) Next Next Next
