[Solved] Func don't return array

Recommended Posts

Hello, i'm making a little script that lets users enter a question and if the script can't answer to, it ask what would be the answer (a bit like siri on IPhones). And I try to display the "supposed array" I still have an error.. I searched on Google and got nothing looked in the help file too.. I'm here to know if someone have a solution to my error please.

Here is where $a and $b should become arrays :

Dim $dossier  = @AppDataDir & "\Siri2"
Dim $chemin = $dossier & "\data.ini"
Global $a = _InfoRead($chemin, 0)
Global $b = _InfoRead($chemin, 1)

with this function :

Func _InfoRead($path, $mode = 0)
    If DirGetSize($dossier) = -1 Then Return SetError(-4)
    If Not FileExists($chemin) Then Return SetError(-5)
    Local $readed = IniReadSection($path, "data")
    If @error Then Return SetError(-3)
    $size = $readed[0][0]
    Local $return[$size]
    For $i = 1 To $size Step 1
        $return[$i - 1] = $readed[$i][$mode]
    Next
    Return $return
EndFunc

and the thing that i don't understand is that, after _InfoRead return affected to $a, I can't use _ArrayDisplay because of  error 1 "$aArray is not an array" (and same fpr the variable $b)..

Can please someone help me to understand why is it doing this ?

When you call Return SetError(-4) or SetError(-5) you are returning an errorcode, not an array. If you check the return value of $a or $b is it returning an error?

:o Yes you're right, it was returning an error because there was nothing in the data.ini ! I feel stupid now :lol:.

Thanks man !

Func _InfoRead($path, $mode = 0)
    If DirGetSize($dossier) = -1 Then Return SetError(-4)
    If Not FileExists($chemin) Then Return SetError(-5)
    Local $readed = IniReadSection($path, "data")
    If @error Then Return SetError(-3)
    $size = $readed[0][0]
    Local $return[$size]
    For $i = 1 To $size Step 1
        $return[$i - 1] = $readed[$i][$mode]
    Next
    Return $return
EndFunc

As you can see in the function, i am using IniReadSection.

And there is 1hour ago, it was working but now when my script try to match the user's question to one that he knows, i get an error :

For $i = 0 To Ubound($a, 1) Step 1
    If $question = $a[$i] Then ; If the user's question match to one that he knows
        MsgBox(0, "Syrie II", $b[$i]) ; We answer it
        $IsDone = True ; We answered the question so we put it to True
        ExitLoop(1) ; And we break the search loop
    EndIf
Next
Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.:
If $question = $a[$i] Then
If $question = ^ ERROR

Was the same error than last time but now i can _ArrayDisplay $a and i get no errors with _InfoRead function

PS: $question is the user's question in lower case and $b the answer array

For $i = 0 To Ubound($a, 1) Step 1

Fix with:

For $i = 0 To Ubound($a) - 1

as AutoIt arrays' indices are 0..Ubound($a)-1

      Hi
      I am trying to set Accelerator keys from an array.
      I select the KEY and CONTROL from a SQLite table, the Array looks like that generated for the Helpfile, but I can't get the CONTROLS to resolve...
      I though about Assign & Eval, but not sure if that's a step in the right direction. IsDeclared shows that the $var exists in Local Scope -1.  
       
      Local $Main = GUICreate("Custom MsgBox", 225, 80) GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please select a button.", 10, 10) Local $idButton_Yes = GUICtrlCreateButton("Yes", 10, 50, 65, 25) Local $idButton_No = GUICtrlCreateButton("No", 80, 50, 65, 25) Local $idButton_Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 150, 50, 65, 25) Local $query, $aResult, $iRows, $iColumns $query = "" ;reset $query = "Select hotkey_key, hotkey_ctrl from mytable where mykeys = 'hotkey' ; " ; ; Query $iRval = _SQLite_GetTable2d($sqliteDb, $query, $aResult, $iRows, $iColumns) If $iRval = $SQLITE_OK Then Local $sizeofHotkeys = UBound($aResult) - 1 ConsoleWrite("$sizeofHotkeys " & $sizeofHotkeys & @CRLF) If $sizeofHotkeys > 0 Then Local $main__aAccelKeys[$sizeofHotkeys][2] For $i = 0 To $sizeofHotkeys - 1 $j = $i + 1 ; replace friendly text with code -- ! alt + Shift ^ Ctrl # Windows $aResult[$j][0] = StringReplace($aResult[$j][0], "Alt", "!") $aResult[$j][0] = StringReplace($aResult[$j][0], "Shift", "+") $aResult[$j][0] = StringReplace($aResult[$j][0], "Ctrl", "^") $main__aAccelKeys[$i][0] = $aResult[$j][0] ;--- $main__aAccelKeys[$i][1] = $aResult[$j][1] ;--- Next ;~ Row|Col 0|Col 1 ;~ Row 0|F2|$idButton_Yes ;~ Row 1|F3|$idButton_No _DebugArrayDisplay($main__aAccelKeys) Local $rv = GUISetAccelerators($main__aAccelKeys, $Main) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Display the GUI.  
      Please note that this is a modified Helpfile example.
      The Helpfile specifies (a) WinHandle and (b) last Gui created.
      --> the example uses a control not a WinHandle and (b) what happens with ChildGuis? Also, the HelpFile specifies lower case, yet the examples show "{F1}" upper case?
      Also, is there a way to check the result of the GuiSetAccelerator function? 
      Note, if I add these to lines after the FOR loop, then the F1 works, and the DebugArrayDisplays shows control 4... not it's name... So I am in the right place, but my $vars names do not convert to their control numbers in the GUI
      Next $main__aAccelKeys[$sizeofHotkeys - 1][0] = "{F1}" ; -- -- use the extra row for the F1 $main__aAccelKeys[$sizeofHotkeys - 1][1] = $ChmHLP ;--- Skysnake

      I've used PowerPro for years and it had a feature that let you turn an array into a menu.  It also let you know if it got a right click. I liked the right click feature because it doubled the menu item usage ie left/right on the same menu item.  I tried recreate that usage with a context menu.   With _ArrayToMenu you can pass menu items for 1 and 2 dimensional arrays. Note you can indicate sub-menu but using a -> at the end of the item.  Use a - to make a separater. Optionally you can pass Tooltips by passing a second array. This array must have the same dimensions as the items array even if not all the elements contain tips. The UDF returns an array with this index of row (and if submenus column), the third element is 1 if right clicked otherwise 0 and the fourth element of the array is the label of the menu item. If the user escapes without choosing an item the the first element returns a -1.  Same thing if the user clicks on another window.   @error returns 1 if there was no array passed, 2 if the second array has different dimensions than the first.   If you use the same label in two parts of your menu you will have to distinguish them.  You can do that by additionally making sure that the selection matches the index number(s).  Note that you'll have to match the index number plus label before you match just the label because Switch will use the first match it can find.  In the example below I am using a check on which column the data is in.  If it's not in the first column then it must be the other "Beef".   Beef
      Fruit
      Col2 > Beef
                  Bread   $aR = _ArrayToMenu($aM) Switch $aR[3]
      Case "Beef" and $aR[2] = 0
             Beef1()
       Case "Beef"
             Beef2()
      EndSwitch   On a technical note I attached the context menu to the window itself not a dummy control and I didn't use _GUICtrlMenu_TrackPopupMenu.  Instead I launched the context menu with "send shift-F10" and waited for GuiGetMsg() to give me the selection. Right click is picked up by GUIRegisterMsg WM_RBUTTONUP and Tooltips are done with GUIRegisterMsg WM_MENUSELECT. The whole thing is done with 3 functions. 
      I won't tell you how long it took me to figure this out but I'll say that on one of my early attempts it had two windows running at once and one was just to recieve the right click an tell the other it got it.  Suffice it to say I'm no wiz at Autoit but I really appreciate the support the community offers and I hope someone finds this useful. BTW I wrote a script to produce 1d and 2d auotit array code from excel in case you want to model your menu in excel. Here is the link.

      Hey all, 
      Ending day 2 of learning AutoIt, and I'm stumped. I wrote an extremely rudimentary script simulating keystrokes for reading/copying values from one excel spreadsheet and pasting them into another spreadsheet, line by line. It works, but it doesn't use any of the Excel UDFs and was just sloppy. So, I'm trying to re-write it using some Excel UDFs to not only optimize the script, but to also learn how to use the Excel UDFs. If the answer is in a help file, please explain as I'm sometimes having problems understanding the examples in the help files.
      I'm getting the error: 
      "C:\Users\johndoe\Desktop\AutoIt Test\AutoIt_Read spreadsheet 1 - write spreadsheet 2-version2.au3" (25) : ==> Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.: MsgBox(0,"Test","Test",$SourceEntry[1]) MsgBox(0,"Test","Test",^ ERROR >Exit code: 1 Time: 1.804 Here is the code:

This is because I've got to add some checks against the values already existing in the destination spreadsheet before any manipulation. I've spent the last hour or more googling that error and reading multiple posts where that error is meaning many different things, so unsure EXACTLY what the problem is. Would greatly appreciate a fix and/or explanation as well as patience with my noob-ness.
      Thanks in advance

      I appreciate this seems like a trivial question, but my searching has failed....
      I was using a 1D array as follows:
      Local $DataName[3] = [2, $sBaseFileName, $sUpdatedFileName] And all was OK. I then wanted to separate the declaration from the assignment and assumed I could do something like:
      Local $DataName[3] $DataName = [2, $sBaseFileName, $sUpdatedFileName] ;or $DataName[] = [2, $sBaseFileName, $sUpdatedFileName] But I see I cannot. I am aware that I can add the 3 elements 1 at a time with _ArrayAdd, but is there a simple inline method like I was trying for?
    • By Lynn Shaw
      Anyone know why _ArraySearch is not finding an entry with a single quote in it?  
      Here is an example:
      #include <array.au3>
      Dim $array[3][2]
      $array[0][0] = "Testing is****fun"
      $array[1][0] = "Don't mess with me kid"
      $array[2][0] = "blah'blah"
      _ArrayDisplay($array)
      $index = _ArraySearch($array, "blah'blah", 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1)
      MsgBox(262144, 'Debug line ~' & @ScriptLineNumber, 'Selection:' & @CRLF & '$index' & @CRLF & @CRLF & 'Return:' & @CRLF & $index) ;### Debug MSGBOX
