convert array index to proper value

3 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I'm facing a problem that I can't solve, despite trying hard.

I have an .ini file with several sections:

[Latitude E5440]
URL=http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/latitude-e5440-laptop.html
[Latitude E5450]
URL=http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/latitude-e5450-laptop.html
[Latitude E5470]
URL=http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/latitude-e5470-laptop.html
[Latitude E7240]
URL=http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/latitude-e7240-ultrabook.html
[Latitude E7250]
URL=http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/latitude-e7250-ultrabook.html
[Latitude E7270]
URL=http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/latitude-e7270-ultrabook.html

Then I collect the computer model name and try to look if it exists in the ini file. But, when performing the search, I only got the index in the array.

For example, my computer model is a "Latitude E7240". An "_ArraySearch" gives me "4" as a result and because this is also the fourth place of my search in the ini file. It works well if I move the section anywhere else in the file and always give me the correct position.

Question is: How can I convert the index number to the section name so I can tell my script that if it's found in the ini file, the download URL variable will be set to the corresponding key in the ini file.

Here's my code so far:

Spoiler
#include <String.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <Date.au3>
#include <InetConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPIFiles.au3>
#include <WinAPISys.au3>
#include <TrayConstants.au3>
#include <ProgressConstants.au3>
#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Date.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#Include <FontConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <GuiMenu.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <ColorConstants.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <ListBoxConstants.au3>
#include <AD.au3>
#Include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPISys.au3>
#include <IE.au3>

Global  $Output, $sLinksBIOS, $sBIOSName, $sIniPath, $aSectionsNames

$sInipath = "";to adjust for tests
$wbemFlagReturnImmediately = 0x10
$wbemFlagForwardOnly = 0x20
$colItems = ""
$strComputer = "localhost"
$Output=""
$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
$colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_ComputerSystemProduct", "WQL", _
$wbemFlagReturnImmediately + $wbemFlagForwardOnly)

If IsObj($colItems) then
   For $objItem In $colItems
    $Output = $objItem.Name
   Next
Else
   Msgbox(0,"WMI Output","No WMI Objects Found for class: " & "Win32_ComputerSystemProduct" )
Endif

$aSectionsNames = IniReadSectionNames ($sInipath)

If Not @Error Then
    Local $iIndex = _ArraySearch ($aSectionsNames, $Output)
    MsgBox (0, "", $iIndex)
Endif

 

Can someone give me an hand on this?

Thanks :)

Sorry for double posting but I found the solution 5 minutes after having posted this topic...

For the record, it was:

If Not @Error Then
    Local $iIndex = _ArraySearch ($aSectionsNames, $Output)
    
    MsgBox (0, "", $aSectionsNames[$iIndex])
Endif

:sweating:

There's no need to do that, if an entry already exists in an INI file, writing it again will just overwrite the entry already there. As long as the information isn't changing, you don't need to worry about whether it's already in there or not.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

      I keep losing the count of my $r varable when I go into the dropdown () function and call the same function.

      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

      I was wondering if it is possible to make this code skip to the next row if it reads a blank line?
      I tried this.
