Assign a value to an array in array element

15 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

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.

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.

      Merge 2 x 1d temp arrays into one 2d array
      By StillLearningThisStuff
      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,

      AutoIt script turns off, because of array is out of bound
      By SorryButImaNewbie
      Hello all!
      I wrote a little script to automate some of my work (for which I'm greatfull).
      I have little problem now. My script get data of currency values from specified time period. The problem, if XY day is a holiday or something, then the bank doesn't have new values for that day, thus my script can ask for "till that date" if there is only data for "till that date-1".
      I should be done with this for tomorrow and I should learn for my test paper tomorrow, make a genetic algorhytm homework, and at least look at a ppt...

      convert array index to proper value
      By 31290
      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:
      Can someone give me an hand on this?
      Thanks
