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:

#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.

      Hello everyone !
      I have a little problem
      I would like to do a little program who analyse an array and return the 1st line of the array who is empty
      For example :
      Global $aArray[5] = "abc","def","ghi","","mno" ; And Then, (maybe a For loop who) return in a variable "4" ; because the 4th case of the array is empty I've took a look in helpfile but found nothing intrusting..
      If someone have already done this or have idea how to proceed..

      Hi,
       
      I am trying to create a list view wich shows the content of an ini file. There is a pulldown menu wich allows me to check a certain status in the ini file if the status is found it should read out the key and in every section the same key is located after that it should fill out the listview with all results found.

      Hi,
      i a stuck with a hopefully a little problem.
      I know the value of a not yet known key in an ini file.
      I need to be able to find the key using the value. The value is a unique value in a section.
       
      Hope you guys can help me.

      Hello all,
      Summary: I have a basic piece of code that is to be a part of a much larger project; I just can't seem to get the right output. I'm retrieving two lots of powershell data into 2 x 1d arrays and trying to add them into a single 2d array. Retrieving the data together into the 2d array seemed harder, due to the application names varying too much to string split. Data being pulled is application name and GUID. From here I will use this info in a drop down box and an uninstall button to run the required command to remove the selected software (have this sorted already).
      Problem: When I merge the data it doesn't put the application name and GUID on the same row in differing columns eg. my test box has 24 applications plus some superfluous data from Powershell to be cleaned up by the _arraydeletes. Instead I end up with an array with 58 rows and 2 columns; whereas my temp 1d arrays have 28 rows. As you can see I've tried both _ArrayInsert and _ArrayAdd but I still get the same result.
      Question: Is there something that I'm doing wrong in putting the data into the 2d array or do I just need to do some more post processing to tidy it up and align the names and GUIDs?
      Code:
      #include <Array.au3> $Cmd1 = (" /c Powershell.exe " & Chr(34) & "Get-WmiObject -Class win32reg_addremoveprograms | where {$_.ProdID -like " & Chr(34) & Chr(123) & Chr(42) & Chr(125) & Chr(34) & "} | select DisplayName" & Chr(34)) $Cmd2 = (" /c Powershell.exe " & Chr(34) & "Get-WmiObject -Class win32reg_addremoveprograms | where {$_.ProdID -like " & Chr(34) & Chr(123) & Chr(42) & Chr(125) & Chr(34) & "} | select ProdID" & Chr(34)) Global $aNameGUID[1][2] ;_ArrayDisplay($aNameGUID) ReadApps($Cmd1,0) ;_ArrayDisplay($aNameGUID) ReadApps($Cmd2,1) _ArrayDisplay($aNameGUID) Terminate() Func ReadApps($Command,$col) $DOS = Run(@ComSpec & $Command, "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) ProcessWaitClose($DOS) $DOSOut = StdoutRead($DOS) ;MsgBox(0,"Data",$DOSOut) ;Show the line items that we want in the array Local $tmpArray = StringSplit(StringTrimRight(StringStripCR($DOSOut), StringLen(@CRLF)), @CRLF) If @error Then MsgBox(0,"FAIL","I failed to find objects") Exit Else _ArrayDisplay($tmpArray) EndIf ;_ArrayDelete($tmpArray, 3) ;_ArrayDelete($tmpArray, 2) ;_ArrayDelete($tmpArray, 1) ;$tmpArray[0] = $tmpArray[0] - 3 For $i = 0 To UBound($tmpArray) - 1 ;_ArrayAdd($aNameGUID, $tmpArray[$i], $col) _ArrayInsert($aNameGUID, 0, $tmpArray[$i], $col) Next $tmpArray = 0 EndFunc ;==>ReadApps While 1 Sleep(1500) WEnd Func Terminate() Exit 0 EndFunc ;==>Terminate Thanks in advance,

      Please help
