_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)

      Hi, I was looking into creating a script that would detect if a file exists, then move it (and in some cases rename it, depending on the file) as well as write to a log file.
      The issue is, there is a lot of files that need to be moved, sometimes some files will exist and others won't depending on the use-case. However if a file does exist, it will always be going into the same directory with the same name.
      Currently I have an array nested inside of the array, with each array inside that array having both the old and new directory, and then a For loop to actually run through and do the file transferring. The issue I am having is how to call the Array inside of the array, because how do I specify  which the old directory is and which the new is?
      Global $FileTransfer[2000] = [Global $Dir1[2] = ["original dir 1", "new dir 1"], Global $Dir2[2] = ["original dir 2", "new dir 2"]] For $FileTransfer = [0] To [1] Step +1 If FileExists({original dir}) Then FileMove({original dir}, new dir, 1) FileOpen("log.latest.txt", 1) FileWrite("log.latest.txt", "{original dir} found, moved it to new dir." & @CRLF) FileClose("log.latest.txt") Else FileOpen("log_latest.txt", 1) FileWrite("log_latest.txt", "{original dir} not found, ignoreing it." & @CRLF) FileClose("log_latest.txt") EndIf Next I have put what I want the old and new directory to be for each array in {}, so hopefully its easier to tell which part is working and whats not.

      I am still reasonably new to AutoIT, any help is appreciated. Thankyou

      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
