Searching an Array for Number of Instances of Elements

7 posts in this topic

I'm trying to create an (I believe) _ArraySearch that will look at a 2D array

Local $avArray[6][2] = [ _
        ["07/01/16", "SubString0"], _
        ["06/15/16", "SubString1"], _
        ["07/01/16", "SubString2"], _
        ["06/24/16", "SubString3"], _
        ["07/01/16, "SubString4"], _
        ["06/30/16", "SubString5"]]

and return the number of times that a specific date is shown.

i.e.

07/01/16 = 3

06/30/16 = 1

etc.

I'm thinking:

_ArraySearch($avArray.$Value=_Now(),Column0)

But I have no idea if I'm even close.

My goal is to create a updateable field that will tell me the number of "calls" I've logged throughout the day.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Here's an example.

#include <Array.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $avArray[6][2] = [ _
        ["abc", "SubString0"], _
        ["x", "SubString1"], _
        ["y", "SubString2"], _
        ["z", "SubString3"], _
        ["abc", "SubString4"], _
        ["abc", "SubString5"]]

Local $search = "x"
Local $column = 0

Local $result = _ArrayFindAll($avArray, $search, Default, Default, Default, Default, $column)

If IsArray($result) Then
    _ArrayDisplay($result)
    local $count = UBound($result)
    MsgBox(64, "Count", $search & " occured " & $count & " time" & ($count > 1 ? "s" : "") & " in column " & $column & " of the array.")
Else
    MsgBox(16, "Count", $search & " was not found in column " & $column & " of the array.")
EndIf

I just hate software that says "1 times" ;)

And you can go the string route as well, this example includes substrings and all columns

#include <Array.au3>

Local $search = "ax"
$sColStart = 0
$sColEnd = 1

Local $avArray[6][2] = [ _
        ["abc", "SubString0"], _
        ["ax", "SubString1"], _
        ["y", "SubString2"], _
        ["z", "SubStringax"], _
        ["axc", "SubString4"], _
        ["abc", "SubString5"]]


stringreplace(_ArrayToString($avArray , "," , -1 , -1 , "," , $sColStart , $sColEnd) , $search , $search)

msgbox(0, '' , @Extended & " instance(s) of " & '"' & $search & '"')

I haven't tested it but it's probably slower with that string manipulation, and if nothing else you'd have to worry about the data and/or the search string containing instances of your delimiter though.

      So I have a loop that keeps reading data from an array and searching it for the same value. If the value is no there it does work then adds the value to the array to prevent it from doing the same work.
      If _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) = -1 Then Work.... _ArrayAdd($ID,$filearray[$i]) EndIf This is in a for loop hence $i
      So what is happening is the code works great for several hours. After a period of time _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) will result in -1 even if $ID = $filearray. So it ready as if there is no data in the array. Anyone have this problem? 
       
      Also I am just running in using F5 not compiling it and running it if that makes a difference.

      I am reading a CSV file which is tab seperated as below.
      Local $aArray = FileReadToArray($file) And now, I am splitting this main array record wise so that Array contains internally another arrow to represent each row.
      For $i = 0 to (UBound($aArray) - 1) ;MsgBox(0,"",$aArray[$i]) $aArray[$i] = StringSplit(StringStripCR($aArray[$i]), Chr(9),2);Chr(9) for tab ;_ArrayDisplay($aArray[$i]) Next Afther that, _ArrayDIsplay is able to see the individual internal arrays.
      _ArrayDisplay($aArray[1]) But If I try to access the individual element of it as below.It is not showing any result.
      MsgBox(0,"",$aArray[1][1]) Any suggestion, below is the sample csv file.

      Need some help understanding why the ConsoleWrite works inside 2nd For loop but not out side. Between Audit Wiki, Help file , Forum searching (lots of code reading), and YouTube ( shout out to TutsTeach), I have not been able to find the reason why. 
      $sIniPath = "installLog.ini" ; - Get section name $iniSctionNames = IniReadSectionNames($sIniPath) ; - Get Keys and Vaules For $a = 1 to UBound($iniSctionNames) - 1 $keys = IniReadSection($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[$a]) For $b = 1 to UBound($keys) - 1 $oldSysInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[1], $keys[$b][0], "") $PntIPInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[2], $keys[$b][0], "") $NewPCInfor = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[3], $keys[$b][0], "") ;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF) Next ;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF) Next ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo) My intention is to use the variables later for Listboxes. Any explanation, forum post links or whatever would help. Sorry also very very new to Autoit.
      Also here's the ini file.
