Save an array to file with @TAB delimiter

6 posts in this topic

I'm trying to save an array to a file with TAB as a delimiter so it looks nice and the lines are not jumping.

I have seen this

_FileWriteFromArray($sFilePath,$aEndResult,Default,Default,@TAB)

but the content of the file is jumpy.

My array contains 3 column and I'm affraid if the 1. column is to short/long it will jump.

I add to the array like this and it looks ok when I use _arraydisplay

_ArrayAdd($aEndResult,$aUser[$i] & '|' & $sSetAccountDate & '|' & 'FAILED')
_ArrayAdd($aEndResult,$aUser[$i] & '|' & $sSetAccountDate & '|' & 'OK')

FileContent:

DKSOCNNC    2016/09/31 07:52:16 Failed
DKSOGVY 2016/04/31 06:20:31 Failed

Is there a way to control that?

I imagine it to be a very complex function for a generic function to do what is needed, but for a simple array like you demonstrate here, looping through the array testing string length of element 0, and appending with either 1 or 2 tabs appropriately might suffice.

Hi,

Welcome to the forum :)

 

Please look up in the help files the function "StringFormat()"

 

<cite>

PrintFormat($sString, "[%-10s]", "10 chars left justified with added spaces") ; [string    ]

</cite>

Do get appropriate results first of all loop through your array to catch the longest sting in your collumn 1 so that you know, how many char's you will need for all the other "Col-1-Values".

Done that and I know the longest string now, but what then?

Local $ilen = 0
    For $i = 0 to UBound($aEndResult) -1
        if $ilen < StringLen($aEndResult[$i][0]) Then
            $ilen = StringLen($aEndResult[$i][0])
        EndIf
    Next
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "EndResultLen", $ilen)

Do I run through the array again and add the length to record?

Sorry for asking, but I don't know how to do this.

 


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

Test this (untested) script:

Local $ilen = 0
For $i = 0 to UBound($aEndResult) -1
    if $ilen < StringLen($aEndResult[$i][0]) Then
        $ilen = StringLen($aEndResult[$i][0])
    EndIf
Next
For $i = 0 to UBound($aEndResult) -1
    $aEndResult[$i][0]= StringFormat('%-'&$ilen&'s',$aEndResult[$i][0])
Next

so all elements in first col have the same length and the Delimparameter (@Tab) do the rest using _FileWriteFromArray

      Ok so im using this program. clarify for school. I would like to have a program that takes every word i type in microsoft word and searches on it in claryfi. is this possible. I would like to have the program not stopping me from typing more after that word. Like when i type a word it auto search it on clarify without making me stop typing and if i want to change i can do that and if im fine that word i can just keep typing and it will search after the next word.

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.

      I need to open an application and send it keys in Session 0.  I have exe's working locally, I can see the application open in session 0 through interactive services, but my send commands do not go to the application.  The following article running-autoit-session-0, directs me to use ControlSend() however my application has no controls that can be identified by AutoIt v3 Window Info.  Get All Windows Controls also returned nothing for the application's handle.  
      What are my options?  
      Can this be done with AutoIt?
      Is there a different "relatively simple" library/tool to use? (I am familiar with C# if there is a viable library there )

      Hey all,
      Has anyone created any queries for youtube? I was thinking it might be something like this but can't quite figure it out:
      $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() _IENavigate($oIE,"https://www.youtube.com") Local $oForms = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "form") Local $sTxt = "" For $oForm In $oForms If $oForm.id = "masthead-search" Then $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input") For $oInput In $oInputs If $oInput.id = "masthead-search-term" Then _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "cards") _IEFormSubmit($oForm) EndIf Next EndIf Next

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx
