[Solved]Array.au3 error ?

Recommended Posts


Hey !

I was looking for an array display to see the result of StringSplit but when i called the <Array.au3>, an error is showing up when i try to launch the script.

I took a screenshoot of the windows dialog box error : imp.bmp

And when I look into the Array.au3 there is no error :

; I am the line 72

EndFunc   ;==>_ArrayAdd
; As you can see above, there is a EndFunc for ArrayAdd


Why is it doing this ?

The error makes me believe that something prior to this line is the cause.  Since that line start with Func, something before that line is causing the issue.  Can you share more of the script?  Also, did you extract functions from the Array.au3 UDF, or are you just including it.   Scratch, that....I'm willing to wager you are including it..._Array_Add is the first function in the UDF.

We need more info to go on.  I use the Array.au3 UDF all of the time and never have this issue, so it must be something inherit with the rest of your script.

    If $UpdateNeeded[0] = 1 Then $UpdateNeeded[1] = $iLink
    Return $UpdateNeeded

I'm making an UDF to check if the script is Up To Date

If you want to know, the file that i'm getting with InetGet contain the following :

The issue is you are including the Array UDF within your function.  So basically what is happening is your Func is followed by another Func inside the Array.au3 UDF, before you function is "closed" (EndFunc).   Move your includes to the beginning of the script.  That should fix your issue.

It works too but the problem just solved itself when creating a new AutoIt file and copy-paste the code into it..

Thanks anyway !

As the standard includes all have #include-once as the first line that will not happen.

The problem is as spudw2k pointed out earlier - you cannot define functions within other functions, so I am somewhat surprised by the OP saying it worked after resaving in a new file.


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

Agreed, unless he put both the includes at the top of the script and in the function (thinking about the include-once directive).

But yes, the point is function cannot be inside other functions.

      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
      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.

      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.
