Old fashion way search array

6 posts in this topic

Hello guys. Again a dummy question for smart people.

I'm wondering if any of you can help me with an issue. I've got a list of names that i would like to store into an array variable. Example $names = [name1][name2][name3]

Then i've got an inputbox that asks for your name. I don't know how i can be able to see if the inputbox value is different then the names. I've done already separate if statements if the values are = with the names. But i want to check for error in case the value of the inputbox is different then my list of names.

Hope it makes sense.

Thank you

#include <Array.au3>

Local $names[3] = ["name 1", "name 2", "name 3"]

$sValue = InputBox("", "")

If _ArraySearch($names, $sValue) Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "Wrong Name ! ")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "", "$sValue = " & $sValue)
EndIf

 

Never mind, this didn't work as expected...

here we go...this one works:

#include <Array.au3>

Local $names[3] = ["name 1", "name 2", "name 3"]

$sValue = InputBox("", "")

If _ArraySearch($names, $sValue) = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "Wrong Name ! ")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "", "$sValue = " & $sValue)
EndIf

      I keep losing the count of my $r varable when I go into the dropdown () function and call the same function.
      #include <Excel.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include<GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include<EditConstants.au3> #include<GUIConstants.au3> Global $iBox, $oExcel, $oWorkbook, $r = 1, $x = 3 HowMany() Excel () Dropdown () Sleep (500) Func Dropdown () $list = GUICreate("Chart", 225, 80) $combobox = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Clinic 1", 10, 10, 120, 20) GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Clinic 2|Clinic 3|Clinic 4") $button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Select", 10, 40, 60, 20) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $guibox = GUIGetMsg() Select Case $guibox = $button Select Case GUICtrlRead($combobox) = "Clinic 1" GUIDelete($list) Auto () EndSelect Case $guibox = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE EndSelect WEnd EndFunc Func HowMany() Local $iMsg While 1 ;~ Turn input into a number $iBox = Number(InputBox ("Regestration", "How Many Patients are there total?")) ;~ If user enters a string or cancels then get them to try again If $iBox = 0 Then $iMsg = MsgBox(1,'Regestration', 'Please enter a valid number') If $iMsg = 2 Then Exit Else ExitLoop EndIf WEnd EndFunc Func Excel() While ProcessExists("EXCEL.EXE") $ms = MsgBox(5,"","Process error.

If $ms=2 Then Exit ;~ Doesn't require sleep since the script is paused by the MsgBox above ;~ Sleep(250) WEnd ;~ Shouldn't use Global Scope inside functions moved to top of script Local $sExcelFile = FileOpenDialog("Choose/Create Excel File", @ScriptDir, "(*.xlsx)") If FileExists($sExcelFile) Then ;~ Shouldn't use Global Scope inside functions moved to top of script $oExcel = _Excel_Open () $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel,$sExcelFile) ;this will open the chosen xls file. Else $oExcel = _Excel_Open() $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookNew($oExcel, 2);this is here to create the xls file if it does not exist. EndIf EndFunc Func Auto() Local $aArray1 = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook) ;~ If $iBox is greater than no. of rows in $aArray then $iBox equals the number of rows in $aArray If $iBox > (UBound($aArray1) - 1) Then $iBox = UBound($aArray1) - 1 For $i = 2 To UBound($aArray1) - 1 ;$i =0 Start from row A If $aArray1[$i][1] = "" Then Continueloop $sR0 = $aArray1[$i][0] ;status $sR1 = $aArray1[$i][1] ;Last Name $sR2 = $aArray1[$i][2] ;First Name $sR3 = $aArray1[$i][3] ;DOB $sR4 = $aArray1[$i][4] ;Sex $sR5 = $aArray1[$i][5] ;Mailling Address $sR6 = $aArray1[$i][6] ;Zip $sR7 = $aArray1[$i][7] ;Phone # $sR8 = $aArray1[$i][8] ;Visit Reason $sR9 = $aArray1[$i][9] ;Insurance $sR10 = $aArray1[$i][10] ;Clinic $sR11 = $aArray1[$i][11] ;Provider $sR12 = $aArray1[$i][12] ;Appt Time $sR13 = $aArray1[$i][13] ;Appt Date WinWaitActive ("Untitled - Notepad") ControlSend("Untitled - Notepad", "", "", $sR1 & ',' & $sR2 & @CR) $r += 1 If $r > $iBox Then Exit Dropdown () Next EndFunc so the second time I choose clinic 1 I want it to go to the next row which would be Champ brett in my example excel.

      Hi guys, 
      I'd like to write a piece of tool that would allow me to update a certain field in our Active Directory from a comma separated csv file composed like this:

      This file, automatically generated, can hold more than 10k lines.
      Thus, I need column A to be in one variable, column B in a second one and column C in a third one.
      I'm really missing this part as updating the AD is fairly easy once the 3 variable are populated. 
      I see things like this:
      Here's my attempts at the moment:
      #include <File.au3> #include <Array.au3> Global $csv_file = @DesktopDir & "\Book1.csv" Global $aRecords If Not _FileReadToArray($csv_file,$aRecords) Then MsgBox(4096,"Error", " Error reading log to Array error:" & @error) Exit EndIf For $x = 1 to $aRecords[0] Msgbox(0,'Record:' & $x, $aRecords[$x]) ; Shows the line that was read from file $csv_line_values = StringSplit($aRecords[$x], ",",1) ; Splits the line into 2 or more variables and puts them in an array ; _ArrayDisplay($csv_line_values) ; Shows what's in the array you just created. ; $csv_line_values[0] holds the number of elements in array ; $csv_line_values[1] holds the value ; $csv_line_values[2] holds the value ; etc Msgbox(0, 0, $csv_line_values[1]) Next Any help on this please? 
      Thanks in advance

      So, I have a text file like this...
      "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} "Label", {left}, {top}, {width}, {height} What I'm attempting to do is read the data from this file, into an array, and use it to create checkboxes on a form like this...
      For $cb = 0 to 4 ; line numbers $Checkbox[$cb] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox({label}, {left}, {top}, {width}, {height}) Next However, I can't figure out how to read the file into the array so as to be able to assign the data elements appropriately. I'm obviously missing something (or more than likely more than one something), but can't figure it out.
      Can anyone assist with this?
      Thanx.

      Im trying to read a JSON file into an array.
       
      The JSON looks like this:
       
      { "project_info": { "project_number": "123456789", "url": "https://www.website.com", "project_id": "PRJ08", "Bucket": "Buk09" }, "client": [ { "client_info": { "id": "1:1001306455", "info": { "name": "banana" } }, "oauth_client": [ { "client_id": "1001306455694-m3h6v", "client_type": 3 } ], "a_key": [ { "key": "dkldkdkd" } ], "Avail": { "ana": { "status": 1 }, "vit": { "status": 1, "other": [] }, "ad": { "status": 2 } } }, { "client_info": { "id": "1:1838346", "info": { "name": "orange" } }, "oauth_client": [ { "client_id": "2145696315633-dmdhe", "client_type": 3 } ], "a_key": [ { "key": "osikdme" } ], "Avail": { "ana": { "status": 1 }, "vit": { "status": 1, "other": [] }, "ad": { "status": 2 } } }, ], "configuration_version": "1" } What I want to do is read it all into one single large array, can anyone help? 
      All I have so far is:
      #include "JSON.au3" #include "array.au3" $file = fileread("C:\file.json") JsonToArray($file) Func JsonToArray($JSON) $JSON = StringRegExpReplace($JSON, "[\[\]{}]", "") $sBreak = StringSplit($JSON, ",") For $a = 1 To $sBreak[0] $t = _JSONDecode("{" & $sBreak[$a] & "}") _ArrayDisplay($t, "multi " & $a & " of " & $sBreak[0]) Next EndFunc ;==>JsonToArray
