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

Recommended Posts

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

      Hi guys
      Need little help with filtering.
      I'm trying to filter specific weeks from power pivot table using this code recorded with Excel VBA :
       
      #include <Excel.au3> Global $oExcel = _Excel_Open() Global $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, "C:\Users\....\Orders.xlsb") $oWorkbook.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields( _ "[Report 2].[Week].[Week]").VisibleItemsList = Array( _ "[Report 2].[Week].&[10]", "[Report 2].[Week].&[11]", _ "[Report 2].[Week].&[12]", "[Report 2].[Week].&[13]", _ "[Report 2].[Week].&[14]", "[Report 2].[Week].&[15]") But get error
      error: Array(): undefined function. Not sure how to resolve this.

      I'm trying to pass a nested array to a function, such that the function alters the inner array.
      I was surprised to find that this minimal reproducible example, despite its use of ByRef, seems to pass a copy of the inner array to the function:
      #include <Array.au3> ; a boring old array Local $aInnerArray[5] = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] ; a one-element array containing a reference to the other array Local $aOuterArray[1] = [$aInnerArray] ; intention: take a nested array and alter its inner array ; reality: the inner array seems to be getting copied Func ChangeIt(ByRef $aOuter) Local $aInner = $aOuter[0] $aInner[2] = 0 EndFunc ; Expected: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] ; Actual: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] ✔ _ArrayDisplay($aInnerArray, 'Before') ; $aOuterArray passed by-ref, should receive reference to $aInnerArray ; Therefore should change $aInnerArray to [1, 2, 0, 4, 5] ChangeIt($aOuterArray) ; Expected: [1, 2, 0, 4, 5] ; Actual: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] ✘ _ArrayDisplay($aInnerArray, 'After') I suspect that either:
      the copy is taking place in the first line of the function (I couldn't find a way to access the inner array without first assigning it to a variable though); or ByRef doesn't propagate into inner levels of the data structure being passed, which seems less likely to me. Could someone please point me in the right direction to get this working as intended?
      Update: the answer
      ; WRONG: ; a one-element array containing a reference to the other array Local $aOuterArray[1] = [$aInnerArray] The assumption I made about this code is wrong—it actually copies $aInnerArray into $aOuterArray, so there are now two unrelated $aInnerArray instances.  It is not possible to store arrays in other arrays by reference.
      If it is necessary to refer to a mutable array in multiple places, consider holding it in a global variable.  Where a collection of mutable arrays needs to be accessed in multiple places (as in my case), consider storing them in a global array and referring to each sub-array by index (also known as the Registry pattern).

      HELLO All,
      is there any function in Auto it to Remove the repeating  strings separated by ","  which is present in the array.
      ex.
      Available state
      a[0]= D97,D96,,D85,D86,D85,D86,D85,D86,D85,,D86,D85,D86,D85,D86
      a[1]=D85,D24,,,,,D85
      Required state
      a[0]= D97,D96,D85,D86,

      Hi all, I wasnt active in this Forum forum for Years. 😅
      Since I need something with Json in AutoIt i write a little UDF to save a variable to file to read it with another language - and back. After a while until my other script grows i thought - lets integrate all variables wich is possible, because i want have arrays to.
      This is my first public UDF in Autoit - normaly my AutoIt scripts are quick an dirty.... - like the examples for this udf. - someone want to write nice examples?
      I tried to write this UDF properly, cared for processing speed, low mem consumption as possible, a short code, and a high usability without beeing very familiar with arrays.
      What is it for? - convert nearly all types of variables to a json string for saving it in a file or to an ini. Read it back in to a same formated variable and preserv variable types. All array types are supported with nested arrays, the only restriction is ram and array/stringsize - and time if the array is very big. You can use Filters for variable types and some other options.
      If anyone found a bug or any suggestions, please post it.
