Need help debugging _arrayadd function

2 posts in this topic

Hi all, 

First, I want to give a huge shout-out to the community. I'm completely self-taught, and have never had to actually ask a question before because the forum is that good at answering questions and explaining things. However, I'm kind of stumped here, and I've been stuck on this problem for almost a full day.

I'm working on a script to populate drafts of deeds at work. I have the main GUI and  a function (ctrl($n) and read()) for adding fields to find and data to replace it with to an array for later use with _word_docfindreplace. All of that works. However, due to the way I have the forms set up, I need to create additional fields and info based on the data that's there. Specifically, if there's only one buyer, I need to add the field [Buyer1&2] and the data in $aArray_Base for [Buyer 1]. I also need to add a field [Buyer 2] and have a blank data set in the next column over in the array, and I need to do the same for the Seller. To this end, the function parties() sets boolean variables $2buyers and $2sellers accordingly. Then, I have buyers() and sellers() to populate the data. 

The problem that I'm running into is that each function works... when ONLY the buyer 1 name field is filled, and when ONLY the seller 1 field is filled.

So if I fill Buyer 1 Name and save it, the data is populated correctly. But when I fill Buyer 1 and Seller 1 name, only the buyer 1 data populates correctly. Worse, when I fill several fields, neither populate correctly. I have no idea why this happens. I've added messageboxes to debug throughout the entire process and can't pinpoint what's causing the issue. The entire script is below. The function(s) in question are buyers() and sellers(). Only Sellers() has messageboxes throughout.

Can someone help walk me through what might be causing this and help me find a solution? Thanks a ton in advance, and sorry for the wall of text.

Hi all,

I figured it out. Sorry for the inconvenience. I was doing this:

Func Buyers()
If $2buyers = False Then ; [Buyer1&2] = [Buyer 1]
   local  $row = _arraysearch($aArray_Base, "[Buyer 1]")
   If $row = NOT -1 Then ; account for blank [Buyer 1] ; <================= ERROR IS HERE
   $arrayadd[0][0] = "[Buyer1&2]"
   $arrayadd[0][1] = $aArray_Base[$row][1]
   _arrayadd($aArray_Base, $arrayadd)

   $arrayadd[0][0] = "[Buyer 2]" ; Delete Buyer 2 if found
   $arrayadd[0][1] = ""
   _arrayadd($aArray_Base, $arrayadd)
   EndIf
ElseIf $2buyers = True Then ; [Buyer1&2] = [Buyer 1] and [Buyer 2]
   Local $1row = _arraysearch($aArray_Base, "[Buyer 1]")
   Local $2row = _arraysearch($aArray_Base, "[Buyer 2]")
    $arrayadd[0][0] = "[Buyer1&2]"
    $arrayadd[0][1] = "" & $aArray_Base[$1row][1] & " and " & $aArray_Base[$2row][1]
   _arrayadd($aArray_Base, $arrayadd)
EndIf
EndFunc

Using $row = NOT -1 was causing problems, although I'm not sure why. Using $row <> -1 fixed everything. Thanks anyway!

      MS Splash Screens
      The office 2016/17 office suite has made many people turn heads with its functions and especially their splash screen.
      I now present to you, the MS Style Splash Screen. For Rookies, Novices and anyone who wants a ready made splash screen for your gui application.

      You can now download it and also try it out yourself.
      You have three colors to choose from:
      Blue
      Red
      Green
      All three colours are from the famous programs.
      I also included the KODA form to you can have freedom with this splash screen.
      Note: the KODA form does not have the three colours as well as the correct blue. 

      Have fun and enjoy.
      Note:
      I will update the splash to add the automated 3 dots animation at a later stage.

      Hello all,
      I've been trying to figure out how to launch Google Chrome in the background (hidden) but it doesn't seem possible. I've tried the following methods:
      ShellExecute("C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe", "", "", "", @SW_HIDE) Also I've tried:
      ShellExecute(@ComSpec, "/c start chrome.exe","","",@SW_HIDE) Lastly I tried:
      RunWait('"'&@ProgramFilesDir&'\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --silent-launch',@ScriptDir)  
      But all of them launch my chrome browser without hiding it. Does anyone know a workaround for this or if AutoIT just can't Chrome? 
      Bonus points if you know how to make it launch chrome hidden and make it go to https://www.autoitscript.com
       
      Thank you,
      Brian

      I have a working program currently driven largely through menu selections. I would like to add a toolbar where most of the tollbar button actions are basically the same as menu items, but quicker to access. I have been wading around in toolbar examples, MSDN pages etc, it's clearly going to be a bit of a slog to get everything right, including tooltips etc. I thought I would start with something simple to prove the principle.
      Using bits from the help file examples I have a small program that successfully displays a toolbar. However, what seemed like the most elegant way to deal with the button commands does not seem to work. My understanding was that a toolbar button fires a WM_COMMAND message, with the command Id set by the second parameter in the call to
      _GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton ( $hWnd, $iID, $iImage)
      so I though it would be a good idea to set this Id to the same value as my menu item Id; then it would run the same task which is what I wanted. This did not work. I am using message loop mode and would like to stick with this because some of my scripts run hardware at the same time as the gui; it is easier if I don't have to worry about code being interrupted with the hardware in an unknown state . So I added a handler for WM_COMMAND, with some cribbed display code to try and see why. The toolbar button defintely fired a WM_COMMAND message and the Id looked the same, so no explanation there.
      I guess the issue is with GUIGetMsg() which may be constructed to ignore all but a limited number of control handles, i.e. those made with the GuiCtrlCreate... commands; this is speculation.
      I would dearly love to find a tidy way to get around this. Having some controls handled in the message loop and some in a WM_COMMAND handler, performing the same task, feels ugly. I would be very grateful for further insight from someone experienced with handling a toolbar. Perhaps I should be trying to fire the menu item. I have attached a code snippet to try and illustrate the issue.

      Hello all,
      I've been working on 4 standalone scripts. They each have their own GUI and are now independent .exe's. But instead of having 4 separate icons on my computer, is it possible to put them all together into one .exe?
      What I want is one interface with tabs. Each script's GUI would be on their own respective tab. Is this possible?
      The different scripts don't need to communicate with one another. I just want them all in one .exe.
      I can't find this anywhere... Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
