Merge 2 x 1d temp arrays into one 2d array

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

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,

Could you not retrieve both the DisplayName and ProdID in a single query?

Get-WmiObject -Class win32reg_addremoveprograms | where {$_.ProdID -like "{*}"} | select DisplayName, ProdID | Format-Table

You could also bypass using PowerShell and just query WMI directly from AutoIt (via COM object) and then format the data any way you want/need.

edit: WMI example

#include <Array.au3>  ;only needed for demo

$objWMIService = WMIService(@ComputerName)  ;WMIService Object - Establish Connection
If $objWMIService = 0 Then Exit

Local $strData[2]= ["DisplayName","ProdID"]  ;Data to Return from WMI Query

$arrResults = WMIQuery($objWMIService,"SELECT * FROM Win32Reg_AddRemovePrograms",$strData)  ;Run WMI Query against WMIService Object
$objWMIService = 0  ;Termninate WMIService Object

_ArrayDisplay($arrResults)

Func WMIService($host) ;Connects to WMI Service
    $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & $host & "\root\cimv2")
    If not IsObj($objWMIService) Then return 0
    return $objWMIService
EndFunc

Func WMIQuery($objWMIService,$strWMIQuery,$arrData) ;Perform WMI Query with Query String and Data Return Parameters
    If not IsArray($arrData) then return 0
    $colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery ($strWMIQuery)  ;Execute query against WMI Service Object
    $iCount = $colItems.count
    If $iCOunt <= 0 Then return 0
    $iBound = UBound($arrData)
    Local $arrResults[$colItems.count+1][$iBound] ;Two-Dimension Array to store query Results

    For $i = 0 to $iBound-1
        $arrResults[0][$i] = $arrData[$i]
    Next

    Local $iIdx = 1
    For $objItem in $colItems
        For $i = 0 to $iBound - 1  ;Loop through WMI Query Results
            ;$arrResults[$iIdx][$i] = $arrData[$i]  ;Property/Data Name
            $arrResults[$iIdx][$i] = Execute("$objitem." & $arrData[$i])  ;Result
        Next
        $iIdx += 1
    Next

    return $arrResults  ;Return Result Array
EndFunc

This should do it:

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] = $tmpArray[0] - 3
        If UBound($aNameGUID) < UBound($tmpArray) Then ReDim $aNameGUID[UBound($tmpArray)][2]
        For $i = 0 To UBound($tmpArray) - 1
            ;_ArrayAdd($aNameGUID, $tmpArray[$i], $col)
            ;_ArrayInsert($aNameGUID, 0, $tmpArray[$i], $col)
            $aNameGUID[$i][$col] = $tmpArray[$i]
        Next
    $tmpArray = 0
EndFunc ;==>ReadApps

You can merge two 1D arrays to produce two columns like this, if that's what you want (see my signature).

#include 'ArrayWorkshop.au3'
Local $aTarget = ['a','b','c'], $aSource = [1,2,3]
_ArrayAttach($aTarget, $aSource, 2)

      Hello,
      at first: i'm new here, so please forgive me my mistakes, and show them to me, just that i can learn to do better in the future.
      Now to my Problem: i have an excel sheet, where i just need some columns for further actions, but i have no idea how to add single columns to a new array.
      I found the following code(the one i just added as a file) from 'water' in this forum, but i wont get how i could add multiple columns into a new array.
      The biggest problem in my situation is that i dont know the count of the rows i need for the array, i just got a fix number of rows, which is 4.
       
      Hope you can help me, and sry again for this 'unlucky illustration'.
       
      btw: how can i add code shown as code here, instead of posting it as a attached file?.

      Haven't had much time to code recently. However the following thread inspired me.
      The debate about linear, parallel and binary search methods was rather interesting and, in an attempt to be diplomatic, I decided to combine @jchd's suggestion with @LarsJ's binary search example. I decided that the binary search algorithm required modification to make it more linear. As usual, 'if you invent something, it probably already exists and if it already exists, it exists for a reason'. My first attempt was not all that good. The code worked but was really a mess. I blame peer pressure (to post an example of a parallel search method).  I will delete that old code in due course.
      With a little memory jogging and a glance at the help file, the solution turned out to be quite easy: I just needed a better understanding of Euler. Further modification will be needed to work with more complicated unicode strings. The output could be returned as an array or a delimitered string. I'm not so interested in those details. I'm just going to post the algorithm for now and anyone, who wants to, can modify it to suit their needs. Both arrays must contain at least 1 element.
      Local $aFoo = [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,19,20,23,24,26,30,35,39,40,41] Local $aBar = [0,1,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,17,18,19,21,24,25,26,27,34,35,38,40] ParallelExponetialSearch($aFoo, $aBar) ; Compares two lists - returning positive matches.

This is the one we want to search next, ; so we can bypass more comparisons because (in theory) mismatches have a greater chance of being skipped.

      Afternoon!
      I have a requirement to return both a string and an array from a function so as a result I put them both into an array and returned that.  I can access them in their entirety after returning them but then I can't seem to access the array elements after this.  Should I be able to or is there a prettier way?
      #include <Array.au3> ;Memory info returned as a string and an array $memoryInfo = _getMemoryInfo() msgbox(0,"Memory Info",$memoryInfo[0]) _ArrayDisplay($memoryInfo[1],"Memory as an Array") Local $newArray[7] $memoryInfo[1] = $newArray msgbox(0,"Test element",$newArray[0]) _ArrayDisplay($newArray) Func _getMemoryInfo() Local $newArray[7] Local $array = MemGetStats() $newArray[0] = $array[0] ;% of memory in use $newArray[1] = Round($array[1]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total physical RAM $newArray[2] = Round($array[2]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Availaible physical RAM $newArray[3] = Round($array[3]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total pagefile $newArray[4] = Round($array[4]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available pagefile $newArray[5] = Round($array[5]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total virtual $newArray[6] = Round($array[6]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available virtual $memoryUsage = $newArray[1] - $newarray[2] $pagefileUsage = $newArray[3] - $newarray[4] ;Output/Return Local $returnArray[2] $returnArray[0] = "Memory: " & $memoryUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[1] & " GB " & @CRLF & "Pagefile: " & $pagefileUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[3] & " GB " $returnArray[1] = $newArray return $returnArray EndFunc A bit messy but hopefully it's understandable what I'm trying to achieve.
      Thanks!

      I am having difficulties getting updated results from GUICtrlCreateInput. I wrote a small script to demonstrate what I am trying to do.
      This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
      The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
      Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
      plumbing.
      The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
      figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

      I am working on a Video Player Test Script. I am reading a text file into a 3d array to be displayed in a GUI.
      Array Content:
      [x][0]FileName.mp4
      [x][1]UsageCount -> Up to a 4 digit number
      [x][2]EnableUsageCount (True/False)
      In the GUI the user can check the filename box, edit the number of usages and check EnableUsageCount to turn on the UsageCount control using the UsageCount number for the maximum number of plays.
      To make this easier to deal with I have removed the EnableUsageCount section, and am just concentrating on getting a method to put the edited (or unchanged) UsageCount in the array. Currently nothing is read into the array, due to my using the wrong method in the Case statement.
      Here are code snippets of what I am trying to do:
      ; Snippets from script ; I read the text file at the bottom and put the .mp4 filenames in $aManifest[x][0] and UsageCount in $aManifest[x][1] ; Then I create a GUI to display the .mp4 filenames with checkboxes and the UsageCount to the right. UsageCount is editable by the user. ; If the filename is checked, I want to read the filename into $aCheckedVideos[x][0] and the updated UsageCount in $aCheckedVideos[x][1] ; The GUICtrlRead($aVideoName[$i]) with Case $GUI_CHECKED & UNCHECKED works for the checkboxes ; This section puts the filenames in the GUI with a checkbox For $i = 0 to $iMMCount Step 1 $sMP4Text = $aManifest[$i][0] $iMP4Length = StringLen($sMP4Text) $aVideoName[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($sMP4Text,$iLeft, $iTop) $iTop += 30 Next ; This section reads numbers from the Manifest array, and I want to be able to change the number and have them saved. ; So the Case $GUI_CHECKED & UNCHECKED won't work here, and I can't figure out what I should be doing here. For $i = 0 to $iMMCount Step 1 $sUsageText = $aManifest[$i][1] $aUsageCount[$i] = GUICtrlCreateInput($sUsageText,$iLeft, $iTop, 50,18, $GUI_DOCKAUTO) GUICtrlSetPos($aUsageCount[$i],200) $iTop += 30 Next While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $idCloseGUI For $i = 0 To $iMMNewCount Step 1 Switch GUICtrlRead($aVideoName[$i]) Case $GUI_CHECKED $aCheckedVideos[$i][0] = $aManifest[$i][0] ; If checked, I put the results into a two D array Case $GUI_UNCHECKED ; where Video Name is $aCheckedVideos[x][0] EndSwitch Switch GUICtrlRead($aUsageCounter[$i]) Case $GUI_CHECKED $aCheckedVideos[$i][1] = $aUsageCount[$i] ;I want to put the text (numbers) in $aCheckedVideos[x][1] Case $GUI_UNCHECKED ;but what is returned is blank, probably due to EndSwitch ; $GUI_CHECKED being the wrong thing.

                              Case $GUI_CHECKED
                                  $aCheckedVideos[$i][1] = $aUsageCount[$i]    ;I want to put the text (numbers) in $aCheckedVideos[x][1]

      is wrong, and this is what I am looking for help with. Instead of $GUI_CHECKED what should I be looking for?
      The worst part of this is I had this working late last night, and then lost my changes and cannot for the life of me remember how I had this working.
      Help is truly appreciated!
