Array Comparison with Logical expressions

Recommended Posts



I'm having list of words and put them into an array ($WordsList) and try to compare results with logical function if in such a condition that if letter extracted through _StringBetween doesn't exist in Array ($WordsList) then it'll show message box like "Pattern Not found" and if patter found in array then it'll skip if comparison and show last message "All Done". 

But in my condition, the if comparison is not able to process commands upto my expectations and just show last message only.

Please help me and guide me further how can i make this possible.

$file = fileopen(@ScriptDir & "\source.txt", 10)
$IE = _IECreate( "http://example.com", 0, 0)
$source = _IEDocReadHTML($IE)
FileWrite($file, $source)
Global $File = @scriptdir & "\source.txt"
$sText = FileRead($File)
$target_source = _StringBetween($sText, "Dateuploaded</strong><span>", "</span></li><li><strong>Seeders")
_ArrayDisplay ($target_source)
$WordsList = ("2daysago", "1dayago")
If $target_source[0] <> $WordsList Then ; Here is the problem for logical comparison
   MsgBox ( '', '', 'Pattern Not found')
MsgBox ('', '', 'All Done')

This does NOT compare the extracted text to all the elements of the array:

If $target_source[0] <> $WordsList

You either need to loop through the array in your code comparing each element to the extracted text - or better use _ArraySearch to see if the text exists within the array.


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

      Hi, i'm currently facing problems with understanding how arrays work, or atleast a few commands that alter arrays.
      My current situation is:
      1. I'm taking the process list and putting it all in an array
      2. I want to remove the boring common windows processes
      3. Profit
      And i'm currently stuck on step 2, while i already found this thread it dosn't seem that i can make it do what i want.
      Current code:
      Local $PList = ProcessList() Local $RL[6] = ["smss.exe", "csrss.exe", "svchost.exe", "iexplore.exe", "chrome.exe", "conhost.exe"] Sleep(1) For $i=1 To Ubound($RL)-1 Sleep(1) While Not @Error $iIndex = _ArraySearch($PList, $RL[$i], 1, 0, 0, 1) _ArrayDelete($PList, $iIndex) WEnd Next It seems to remove all but smss.exe from the array list unless i have it two times in the array.
      Note: The sleep(1) is there to clear the error else the command wont fire for the rest of the array, any other way of doing it?

      To save myself a "search" nightmare, I'm trying to wrap my head around 3D arrays.
      Example: In "No Limit Hold'em", if I only play kings "KK" and queens "QQ"
      and I only play them from the positions of the "Button" or "Blinds"
      and do one thing if it's raised ahead or another if not raised.
      I know that this example would be simple as a 2D array but if I'm dealing with 77 possible hands in 9 possible positions and 6 possible conditions then I'm dealing with almost 700 data lines.
      Lastly, if I have a variables to represent the hand like $hand = "QQ"
      and $position = "Button" and $ahead = "Raised", could the 3D array simplify my search, or should I just stick to the 2D array ??
      Thank you in advance for any thoughts...

      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.
