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)

      I keep losing the count of my $r varable when I go into the dropdown () function and call the same function.
      #include <Excel.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include<GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include<EditConstants.au3> #include<GUIConstants.au3> Global $iBox, $oExcel, $oWorkbook, $r = 1, $x = 3 HowMany() Excel () Dropdown () Sleep (500) Func Dropdown () $list = GUICreate("Chart", 225, 80) $combobox = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Clinic 1", 10, 10, 120, 20) GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Clinic 2|Clinic 3|Clinic 4") $button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Select", 10, 40, 60, 20) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $guibox = GUIGetMsg() Select Case $guibox = $button Select Case GUICtrlRead($combobox) = "Clinic 1" GUIDelete($list) Auto () EndSelect Case $guibox = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE EndSelect WEnd EndFunc Func HowMany() Local $iMsg While 1 ;~ Turn input into a number $iBox = Number(InputBox ("Regestration", "How Many Patients are there total?")) ;~ If user enters a string or cancels then get them to try again If $iBox = 0 Then $iMsg = MsgBox(1,'Regestration', 'Please enter a valid number') If $iMsg = 2 Then Exit Else ExitLoop EndIf WEnd EndFunc Func Excel() While ProcessExists("EXCEL.EXE") $ms = MsgBox(5,"","Process error.

If $ms=2 Then Exit ;~ Doesn't require sleep since the script is paused by the MsgBox above ;~ Sleep(250) WEnd ;~ Shouldn't use Global Scope inside functions moved to top of script Local $sExcelFile = FileOpenDialog("Choose/Create Excel File", @ScriptDir, "(*.xlsx)") If FileExists($sExcelFile) Then ;~ Shouldn't use Global Scope inside functions moved to top of script $oExcel = _Excel_Open () $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel,$sExcelFile) ;this will open the chosen xls file.

EndIf EndFunc Func Auto() Local $aArray1 = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook) ;~ If $iBox is greater than no. of rows in $aArray then $iBox equals the number of rows in $aArray If $iBox > (UBound($aArray1) - 1) Then $iBox = UBound($aArray1) - 1 For $i = 2 To UBound($aArray1) - 1 ;$i =0 Start from row A If $aArray1[$i][1] = "" Then Continueloop $sR0 = $aArray1[$i][0] ;status $sR1 = $aArray1[$i][1] ;Last Name $sR2 = $aArray1[$i][2] ;First Name $sR3 = $aArray1[$i][3] ;DOB $sR4 = $aArray1[$i][4] ;Sex $sR5 = $aArray1[$i][5] ;Mailling Address $sR6 = $aArray1[$i][6] ;Zip $sR7 = $aArray1[$i][7] ;Phone # $sR8 = $aArray1[$i][8] ;Visit Reason $sR9 = $aArray1[$i][9] ;Insurance $sR10 = $aArray1[$i][10] ;Clinic $sR11 = $aArray1[$i][11] ;Provider $sR12 = $aArray1[$i][12] ;Appt Time $sR13 = $aArray1[$i][13] ;Appt Date WinWaitActive ("Untitled - Notepad") ControlSend("Untitled - Notepad", "", "", $sR1 & ',' & $sR2 & @CR) $r += 1 If $r > $iBox Then Exit Dropdown () Next EndFunc so the second time I choose clinic 1 I want it to go to the next row which would be Champ brett in my example excel.

      So, I have a text file like this...
      "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} What I'm attempting to do is read the data from this file, into an array, and use it to create checkboxes on a form like this...
      For $cb = 0 to 4 ; line numbers $Checkbox[$cb] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox({label}, {left}, {top}, {width}, {height}) Next However, I can't figure out how to read the file into the array so as to be able to assign the data elements appropriately. I'm obviously missing something (or more than likely more than one something), but can't figure it out.
      Can anyone assist with this?
      Thanx.

      Why idea why would I get an error (Autoit Beta 3.3.15.0):
      Local $json[] Local $map[] $map['test'] = 'hello' Local $array[5] = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] $json["data"] = $map $json["data"]["arr"] = $array ConsoleWrite($json["data"]["arr"][0] & @CRLF)

      Im trying to read a JSON file into an array.
       
      The JSON looks like this:
       
      { "project_info": { "project_number": "123456789", "url": "https://www.website.com", "project_id": "PRJ08", "Bucket": "Buk09" }, "client": [ { "client_info": { "id": "1:1001306455", "info": { "name": "banana" } }, "oauth_client": [ { "client_id": "1001306455694-m3h6v", "client_type": 3 } ], "a_key": [ { "key": "dkldkdkd" } ], "Avail": { "ana": { "status": 1 }, "vit": { "status": 1, "other": [] }, "ad": { "status": 2 } } }, { "client_info": { "id": "1:1838346", "info": { "name": "orange" } }, "oauth_client": [ { "client_id": "2145696315633-dmdhe", "client_type": 3 } ], "a_key": [ { "key": "osikdme" } ], "Avail": { "ana": { "status": 1 }, "vit": { "status": 1, "other": [] }, "ad": { "status": 2 } } }, ], "configuration_version": "1" } What I want to do is read it all into one single large array, can anyone help? 
      All I have so far is:
      #include "JSON.au3" #include "array.au3" $file = fileread("C:\file.json") JsonToArray($file) Func JsonToArray($JSON) $JSON = StringRegExpReplace($JSON, "[\[\]{}]", "") $sBreak = StringSplit($JSON, ",") For $a = 1 To $sBreak[0] $t = _JSONDecode("{" & $sBreak[$a] & "}") _ArrayDisplay($t, "multi " & $a & " of " & $sBreak[0]) Next EndFunc ;==>JsonToArray

      I was wondering if it is possible to make this code skip to the next row if it reads a blank line?
      I tried this.
