Assign a value to an array in array element

Recommended Posts

j0kky

Hi guys,

talking about array in array, I would like to directly assign a value to an element in an array contained in another array.

While it is quite simple to access the value if it is already setted:

Local $a[3] = [1, 2], $b[2] = [3, 4]
$a[2] = $b
ConsoleWrite(($a[2])[0] & " " & ($a[2])[1] & @CRLF)

If I try to write directly to the element, I get an error:

Local $a[3] = [1, 2]
Local $b[2]
$a[2] = $b
($a[2])[0] = 1

Is assigning first every value of the contained array and then including it in the container the only way?

You need a helper function with ByRef parameter.

 

Simple example:

#include <Array.au3>
Local $a[3] = [1, 2], $b[2] = [3, 4]
$a[2] = $b

ConsoleWrite(($a[2])[0] & " " & ($a[2])[1] & @CRLF)

ModArray($a[2], 0, "Test")

_ArrayDisplay($a[2])

Func ModArray(ByRef $aArray, $iElement, $value)
    $aArray[$iElement] = $value
EndFunc

Otherwise a copy of the array will be created.

Thank you for support!

Writing a function with a ByRef param is a smart solution, anyhow it could be useful to directly assign the value to the element.

I'll open a feature request in the bug tracker, maybe in some of the next Autoit version it will be implemented.

Soon is christmas, I would suggest to send the feature list rather to Santa Claus.

What error? If you see error, then it's not by AutoIt because your code is perfectly valid. It's only that the lase line is not an assignment.

There is no error.

($a[2])[0] = 1

The problem is exatly that this line is not considered as an assignment, but ($a[2])[0] is correctly parsed when you try to read from it.

@trancexx,

Given

local $a = [1,2,3], $b = ['a','b','c'], $c = [$a,$b]

how would you change the "a" in array $c?

In both cases you read from it. That's the whole thing.

Just like UEZ did.

Yes, now it is clear, but it sounds strange to me because if you declare a simple array and try to do the same thing, Autoit doesn't read from it but assigns to it the value.

Local $a[2]
$a[0] = 1

That's because you're showing different case.

What you did earlier was more like this:

Local $a[2]
($a[0]) = 1

What does this do?

Don't read wrong what I say, I'm just explaining what AutoIt does. I wrote the code, so I would know.
However I did left it in beta stage, and afterward Jon decided he'd release it. I would ask... but he did not :).

No problem @trancexx, I'm here to learn :)

I'll try to pose the issue in another way (but I think you already get my point):

If I'm working with a simple array:

Local $a[2]
$a[0] = 1
ConsoleWrite(($a)[0] & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite($a[0] & @CRLF)

ConsoleWrite outputs are identical.

But if I'm dealing with an array into an array:

Local $a[3] = [1, 2], $b[2] = [3, 4]
$a[2] = $b
ConsoleWrite(($a[2])[0] & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite($a[2][0] & @CRLF)

The second one (obviously) returns an error because it searches for the 2nd dimension of $a.

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a way to take a number value from a Row2 of a 2D array and according to this check if files that appear in rows 3-11 in the array exists.
      For example, if the number in Row2 is 5 I need to check for the files in Row 3-6 only, if it is 6 than rows 3-7 and so on.
      I thought on using a FOR loop but I have very little experience with those.
      Can you suggest the best way to do what I need?
      BTW, the files in Rows 3-11 will usually have blank value for any row above the number in Row2 (e.g. Row2 = 5 so Rows3-6 will have values but 8-11 be empty), The values I need are in Column 1 of the array, the name of the key from the INI file that the array was created from is in Column 0.
      Full Example:
      Row2 of Array:
      Col0 = Games# - Col1 = 5
      Rows3-6
      Col0 = Exe2 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe3 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe4 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe5 - Col1 = Path To File
      I need that if Row2 is 5 to check these above for rows if the file exists, if it was 6 then the next row as well and so on up until number 10 in Row2 as it can't go above 10.
      So basically for whatever number in Row2 from 2-10 need to check 1-9 rows from 3-11 to see if the files in Col1 exists and if any of them don't exist it should call a function that shows an error message.
      I'm pretty sure I have the first line of the for look correct:
      For $i = 1 To $aAIO[2][1] Just not sure how to continue from there, also not sure if $i should be equal 1 or 2.
      Help will be appreciated.

      Hello,
      I'm trying to get data from twitter to an array and so far I found an Twitter UDF whish lookes very intresting but couldn't get it to work.
      It lookes not supported any more(2010) and buggy when i read all te replies.
      More around this subject (autoit and twitter) i couldn't find on this forum.
      Is there sombody who know's a good way to get live data from twitter to an array inside autoit?
      (I kinda doubt that this isn't tackled before)
      In the end I was hoping to get all tweets from date to date from an specific subject inside a 2D array to work whit.

      I got a question:  i am trying to run different functions based upon what i select in these radio buttons.(code below)
      it needs to check server 1. then run function 1 or function 2 after what i selected in the checkbox.
      once that function is done it moves to the next one, until it has been trough all 5 
       
      iv'e tried using while loops with different while $i equals to something but then i manualy need to go in and edit the script every time.

      Hi everyone, 
      I'm currently writing a script that allow me to list all currently installed software on a computer but some of the are listed in the HKLM64 hive of the registry whereas 95% of all others are in the HKLM "normal" one.
      Thing is, I'd like to combine these two reg key into one single ListView item.
      Here's my code so far, knowing that it's working on both cases (changing to HKLM64 or HKLM short)
      Thanks in advance for the help

      Hi everyone, I'm at best a noobie.  I have read through the Array helps, and specifically the 2D array help file, and I'm struggling to get my code working.
      I have an array that is read from a file, thats working great.  I'm trying to do some math on the array, so I can find the largest, average, lowest, day over day change %, etc.
      The array read working fine, I get 43 lines, line 0 is 44, and then I get data that looks like
      0519 $10,000
      0520 $10,001
      0521 $10,002
      The data in this array is a single 1D array, breaking it out into 2 columns so I can do the math is what I can get to happen.  
      How do I reference the array to store this data?  Second, how do I assign this data to the appropriate row/column?
      Thanks in advance.
      Dim $all_cash_amounts[UBound($aInput)][2] Dim $max_amount_in_account Dim $min_amount_in_account _FileReadToArray($LC_Check_file_path, $aInput) _ArrayDisplay($aInput) local $date = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1) local $cash = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "\d+\s(-?[0-9\.\,]+)", 1) ConsoleWrite("Date is: " & $date & @CRLF) For $i = 1 To UBound($aInput)-1     $date = StringRegExp($aInput[$i], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1)     $all_cash_amounts[$i][2] = $date[$i][0], $cash[$i][1]      Next _ArrayDisplay($all_cash_amounts)
