[Solved] Trouble with Arrays

Recommended Posts

Medallyon

Good Morning/Noon/Evening AutoItScripters,

I have a problem. I have two existing arrays; one with entries and one empty. I want to check the full array for substrings, then insert them into the empty array and purge them from the first one.

ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "Purging Priority Entries from NormalEntry-Array.." & @CRLF)
   For $i=0 To UBound($aFiles)-1
      If StringInStr($aFiles[$i], "#") Then
         ConsoleWrite("(" & $i & ")  Purging '" & $aFiles[$i] & "'.." & @CRLF)
         _ArrayAdd($aSpecialFiles, $aFiles[$i])
         _ArrayDelete($aFiles, $i)
      EndIf
   Next

The code looks beautiful, however I get this one error constanstly:

Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.:
If StringInStr($aFiles[$i], "#") Then
If StringInStr(^ ERROR

I've google'd for hours and rewritten my whole several times, just because of this error that constantly appears. I'm thinking it's probably some fundamentals that I can't get my head around, which is usually the case.

Thanks in advance for any guidance,  

~@Medallyon

Medallyon,

If you are deleting elements from an array, you must start at the bottom and work up - or, as you have discovered, you will try to read past the new end of the shortened array. So change the For line to:

For $i = UBound($aFiles)-1 To 0 Step -1

This works flawlessly.

Thanks for really quick response. I'll definetely keep this in mind when working with arrays.

Doesnt that leave you with two of the exact same array, essentially _ArrayUnique with extra effort?

I'm not removing duplicates, I'm filtering out certain files.

i see, I'd like to start a regexp battle now since you are done with the thread.

Extracting matching data from an array, while being able to present the original without that data:

#include <Array.au3>
local $aArray = ["1" , "#2" , "#3" , "#4" , "5"]

$aMatch = StringRegExp(_ArrayToString($aArray) , "(#.+?)\b" , 3)
$aArray = stringsplit(stringreplace(StringRegExpReplace(_ArrayToString($aArray) , _ArrayToString($aMatch) , "|") , "||" , "") , "|" , 3)

_ArrayDisplay($aMatch , "match")
_ArrayDisplay($aArray , "leftover")

I'm not so good with regexp yet, but nice snippet! Seems to cut out a lot of work, but I think I'll stick to my code until I can even start to comprehend what's going on in yours :D

      Cambiar a español Hello friends, I need help with a problem I have, I want to know if there is any way to update a GUI already running, that is I have a GUI of a certain size and with a button I would like to enlarge it:
      example: $ form1 = GUICreate ("", 200,100,0,0)   When you press the button, the gui increases its size, and actuates the new size.
