Deleting rows in an Array

Recommended Posts

I have an array with 40 numbers.

I want to have the top 20 numbers and delete the rest.

I looked at _ArrayDelete example:

; Range string
$aArray = $aArray_Base
Local $sRange = "0;11-15;24"
_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "BEFORE deletion")
_ArrayDelete($aArray, $sRange)
ConsoleWrite(" " & @error & @CRLF)
_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "RANGE STRING deleted")

Så I was thinking I could do this:

_ArrayDelete($aArray, '0;19')

But that does not give me want I want.

How can I keep my top 20 numbers and delete the rest?

Yours sincerely

the range is defined by hyphen, not semicolon. use "0-19" to remove lines 0 to 19, not "0;19".

BTW you are not clear if you want to keep the first 20 or the last 20 rows.

Or just redim to the bounds you want.  Would work in your situation when you are just truncating from the UBound towards 0.

ReDim $aHit[20]
