How do I delete empty cells in a 2D array.

Recommended Posts

Valnurat

I have a

Global $aResult[0][2]

For $i = 0 to UBound($aNames) -1
    Local $aUserInfo = _AD_GetObjectsInOU($aNames[$i],"","","displayName,distinguishedName")
    _ArrayDisplay($aUserInfo)
    _ArrayConcatenate($aResult, $aUserInfo, 1)
    _ArrayDisplay($aResult, 'AD ' & UBound($aResult))
Next

I do receive empty info that's added to my array.

How can I delete empty records?


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

Loop through the array from the end to the start und use _ArrayDelete to get rid of empty cells.

Valnurat,

Just for grins...

#include <array.au3>

Local $aArray = [[1, 2, 3], ['', '', ''], [4, 5, 6], [7, 8, 9, 0], ['', '', 'a', 'b'], [''], ['last row first cell']]

_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

For $i = UBound($aArray) - 1 To 0 Step -1
    For $j = 0 To UBound($aArray, 2) - 1
        If $aArray[$i][$j] <> '' Then ExitLoop
    Next
    If $j - 1 = UBound($aArray, 2) - 1 And $aArray[$i][$j - 1] = '' Then _ArrayDelete($aArray, $i)
Next

_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

How do I use this? How do I put this back to an array?

EDIT: just answering the last question without regard to whether or not the output should be a 1D or 2D array.  If you liked the output that @iamtheky created and just want it in an array then this should work it assigns the string to a variable that splits the string back into an array using carriage returns with line feeds as the delimiter. 

#include <array.au3>

Local $aArray = [[1, 2, 3], ['', '', ''], [4, 5, 6], [7, 8, 9, 0], ['', '', 'a', 'b'], [''], ['last row first cell']]
$newArray=StringSplit(stringstripWS(StringRegExpReplace(_ArrayToString($aArray) , "\|\|+" , " ") , 4),@CRLF)
_ArrayDisplay($newArray)

Ok, but this just end up in 1D array. It has to be in a 2D array.

I don't understand this request. Are you trying to delete empty rows in a 2D array? Deleting empty cells is impossible without also deleting rows or columns.

also, why don't you check for empty records before the  _ArrayConcatenate() ?

That would be cheating.  Too easy. :)

My mistake. I will ofcourse delete rows. Just my bad words of choice.

Do not use _ArrayConcatenate but loop through $aUserInfo and only write non blank rows to $aResult.

I don't know what exactly is returned by the _AD_GetObjectsInOU() function , (emmm... sorry @water :)) , expecially when there is not data returned, anyway if you have only to scan all records to see if are all empty then something like this should do (not tested):

Global $aResult[0][2]
Local $aUserInfo

For $i = 0 To UBound($aNames) - 1
    $aUserInfo = _AD_GetObjectsInOU($aNames[$i], "", "", "displayName,distinguishedName")
    If _IsNotEmpty($aUserInfo) Then ; there is data in the record?
        ; _ArrayDisplay($aUserInfo)
        _ArrayConcatenate($aResult, $aUserInfo, 1)
    EndIf
Next

_ArrayDisplay($aResult, 'AD ' & UBound($aResult))

Func _IsNotEmpty(ByRef $aData)
    ; returns True if record contains data otherwise returns False
    Local $iSum = 0
    For $x = 1 To UBound($aData) - 1
        $iSum += $aData[$x] <> "" ; count not empty fields
    Next
    Return $iSum > 0 ; returns true if record is not empty
EndFunc   ;==>_IsNotEmpty

Or you could modify the LDAP query so it only returns records where displayname<>""

Here is the _AD_GetObjectsInOU with the proper LDAP query that should get you what you need.  As mentioned by water.  This query only finds user accounts, and not computer accounts. 

$aUserInfo = _AD_GetObjectsInOU($aNames[$i], "(&(objectCategory=Person)(objectclass=user)(displayName=*))", "", "displayName,distinguishedName")

Here is some info on using LDAP Queries.

Ok. I will try a different approach.

$aUserInfo = _AD_GetObjectsInOU("OU=company,DC=ad,DC=company,DC=org", "(&(objectCategory=Person)(objectclass=user)(sAMAccountName=" & $aNames[$i] & "*))", "", "displayName,distinguishedName")

But the result of this ends up with users that I'm not interested in. I would like to avoid where "TransferZone" is exists in distinguishedName.

Is it possble to add an extra filter?


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

      I have a script which executes sleep for a couple of hours then carries out instructions. Does the running AutoIt script prevent the computer from entering sleep mode during this time? If not, is there something I can add to the AutoIt script to keep the computer awake?
      Grateful for advice.

      Hi all,
      I need to use ControlMove() on some controls of a hidden GUI window.
      This works properly on a GUI window created with default style, but does not work on a GUI window created with style $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW
      func GUItest($bOverlapped) $m = GUICreate("test", 200, 100, -1, -1, $bOverlapped ? $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW : -1) $g = GUICtrlCreateButton("test", 0, 0) ControlMove($m, "", $g, 30, 30) GUISetState() endfunc GuiTest(false) ; button 'test' properly moved to (30,30) GuiTest(true) ; button 'test' not moved and still sitting at (0,0) Any reason for this unexpected behavior ?
      Any workaround to fix this ?
      Thanks for any help

      Hi all..
      I'm having slight issue that has be a bit puzzled.
      I have an Input control.. After a certain function runs, it Disables that Input control, and sets it to ReadOnly.
      When running another certain function, it re-Enables that Input control, and sets the style back to Default.
      Which does work, however, when typing into the Input control after re-Enabling it, the text appears as a light gray color, rather than its original black color.
      I'm sure there's a simple solution here.. But what that is, appears to be beyond me.
      Here is a simplified example code:
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= Global $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 245, 215, 192, 124) Global $disableBTN = GUICtrlCreateButton("Disable", 32, 64, 75, 25) Global $enableBTN = GUICtrlCreateButton("Enable", 128, 64, 75, 25) Global $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 32, 120, 169, 21) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $disableBTN disable() Case $enableBTN enable() EndSwitch WEnd Func disable() GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetStyle($Input1, $ES_READONLY) EndFunc Func enable() GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetStyle($Input1, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT) EndFunc  
      Any help would be greatly appreciated
      Thank you in advance!
