Random Variable from array

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have 35 variables (as shown below) in an array and i want it to randomly select one, and then another and another and another so on, until all 35 are selected but never selecting the same one twice.. this has been my only issue

Global $example[35][ex1, ex2, ex3....,] 

Global $ex1 = MouseClick("Left", x1, y1)
Global $ex2 = MouseClick("Left", x1, y1)
Global $ex3 = MouseClick("Left", x1, y1)
;  ect.....

Func Something()
 Random($example) ;35 Times, cant be same var
 
EndFunc

Thanks in advance

It's not that difficult:

#include <Array.au3>

Global $aArray[35], $aIndex[35]
For $i = 0 To 34
  $aArray[$i] = "ex" & $i + 1
  $aIndex[$i] = $i
Next

For $i = 34 To 0 Step -1
  $j = $aIndex[Random( 0, $i, 1 )]
  ConsoleWrite( $aArray[$j] & @CRLF )
  _ArrayDelete( $aIndex, _ArraySearch( $aIndex, $j ) )
Next

hmmmm...after looking the function up in the help file you would have come up with something like this...

#include <Array.au3>

Global $aArray[35]
For $i = 0 To 34
  $aArray[$i] = "ex" & $i + 1
Next

_arrayshuffle($aArray)
_arraydisplay($aArray)

      Hello all,
      Summary: I have a basic piece of code that is to be a part of a much larger project; I just can't seem to get the right output. I'm retrieving two lots of powershell data into 2 x 1d arrays and trying to add them into a single 2d array. Retrieving the data together into the 2d array seemed harder, due to the application names varying too much to string split. Data being pulled is application name and GUID. From here I will use this info in a drop down box and an uninstall button to run the required command to remove the selected software (have this sorted already).
      Problem: When I merge the data it doesn't put the application name and GUID on the same row in differing columns eg. my test box has 24 applications plus some superfluous data from Powershell to be cleaned up by the _arraydeletes. Instead I end up with an array with 58 rows and 2 columns; whereas my temp 1d arrays have 28 rows. As you can see I've tried both _ArrayInsert and _ArrayAdd but I still get the same result.
      Question: Is there something that I'm doing wrong in putting the data into the 2d array or do I just need to do some more post processing to tidy it up and align the names and GUIDs?
      Code:
      #include <Array.au3> $Cmd1 = (" /c Powershell.exe " & Chr(34) & "Get-WmiObject -Class win32reg_addremoveprograms | where {$_.ProdID -like " & Chr(34) & Chr(123) & Chr(42) & Chr(125) & Chr(34) & "} | select DisplayName" & Chr(34)) $Cmd2 = (" /c Powershell.exe " & Chr(34) & "Get-WmiObject -Class win32reg_addremoveprograms | where {$_.ProdID -like " & Chr(34) & Chr(123) & Chr(42) & Chr(125) & Chr(34) & "} | select ProdID" & Chr(34)) Global $aNameGUID[1][2] ;_ArrayDisplay($aNameGUID) ReadApps($Cmd1,0) ;_ArrayDisplay($aNameGUID) ReadApps($Cmd2,1) _ArrayDisplay($aNameGUID) Terminate() Func ReadApps($Command,$col) $DOS = Run(@ComSpec & $Command, "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) ProcessWaitClose($DOS) $DOSOut = StdoutRead($DOS) ;MsgBox(0,"Data",$DOSOut) ;Show the line items that we want in the array Local $tmpArray = StringSplit(StringTrimRight(StringStripCR($DOSOut), StringLen(@CRLF)), @CRLF) If @error Then MsgBox(0,"FAIL","I failed to find objects") Exit Else _ArrayDisplay($tmpArray) EndIf ;_ArrayDelete($tmpArray, 3) ;_ArrayDelete($tmpArray, 2) ;_ArrayDelete($tmpArray, 1) ;$tmpArray[0] = $tmpArray[0] - 3 For $i = 0 To UBound($tmpArray) - 1 ;_ArrayAdd($aNameGUID, $tmpArray[$i], $col) _ArrayInsert($aNameGUID, 0, $tmpArray[$i], $col) Next $tmpArray = 0 EndFunc ;==>ReadApps While 1 Sleep(1500) WEnd Func Terminate() Exit 0 EndFunc ;==>Terminate Thanks in advance,

It`s working but problem is when I put this inside loop, because I need run script until all computers will not be removed from the list (targets.txt). I don`t know how to "refresh" array
      Please help

      Hi guys,
      talking about array in array, I would like to directly assign a value to an element in an array contained in another array.
      While it is quite simple to access the value if it is already setted:
      Local $a[3] = [1, 2], $b[2] = [3, 4] $a[2] = $b ConsoleWrite(($a[2])[0] & " " & ($a[2])[1] & @CRLF) If I try to write directly to the element, I get an error:
      Local $a[3] = [1, 2] Local $b[2] $a[2] = $b ($a[2])[0] = 1 Is assigning first every value of the contained array and then including it in the container the only way?

      Hello all!
      I wrote a little script to automate some of my work (for which I'm greatfull).
      I have little problem now. My script get data of currency values from specified time period. The problem, if XY day is a holiday or something, then the bank doesn't have new values for that day, thus my script can ask for "till that date" if there is only data for "till that date-1".
      I should be done with this for tomorrow and I should learn for my test paper tomorrow, make a genetic algorhytm homework, and at least look at a ppt...
      So here is my code, pleas ask if you need more information!

      My idea/goal (with the If @error then... after @SZAMLATELJolvaso part) is that if this happens, I want it to automaticly jump to the last date of the array (I will be able to write something more elaborate, but for now thats my goal, to save the sinking ship )
