Array assignment

4 posts in this topic

Hello!

Can anyone explain what's going on here:

; Initializing an array
Local $a = [ 0 ]

; Lately in code I want to assign new array to $a variable
$a = [ 1 ]

and got this error at compile time

==> Error in expression.:
$a = [ 1 ]
$a = ^ ERROR

What is it and why?

And I've mentioned that I can't pass "manual" array to function as parameter:

a( [ 0 ] )

Func a( $a )
    _ArrayDisplay( $a )
EndFunc

still the same error

==> Error in expression.:
a( [ 0 ] )
a( ^ ERROR

Local $a[] = [1]
or
Local $a[1] = [1]

Thanks, i've noticed that

Local $a = [ 0 ]

Always works.

But does that means that I have to always declare Scope when I assign any array variable?

just declare it

local $a

and when you know the dimensions, just do

dim $a[$knownscope] [$anotherscope]

The reason for your function not knowing its an array is because you did not declare it properly before you called it.

      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.

      Hello, i'm trying to rename a variable to another variable name (not the value attached to the variable).  This would save me TONS of coding.
      Here is an example:
       
      <autoit>
      Local $clear1="$SATJ"  ;sets the $clear1 variable to become $SATJ
      GUICtrlSetState($clear1 & "3", $GUI_UNCHECKED)  ;i want this to come out to be $SATJ3, it should look something like - GUICtrlSetState($SATJ3, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
      </autoit>
      Is this possible?  I've been searching all the forums and help files for hours.  My javascript friend referenced me to the solution on JS, which lead me to searching through the "assign" help on autoit, but not much info on it.
      I've already tried
      <autoit>
      Assign($clear1, $SATJ)
      </autoit>
       
      any help is greatly appreciated!!!
