Loop Through 2d Array Problem

7 posts in this topic

I am writing a program to automate another program

I created a simple array (image of array attached) that I'm trying to loop through and call elements from the array into my code

#RequireAdmin

#include<file.au3>

;~ _ArrayDisplay($aArray)
local $aArray
_FileReadToArray("C:\Users\User\Desktop\Simple.csv" , $aArray, 0, ",")

Run("C:\Users\User\Desktop\Ingabo HP computer\Desktop\Techsignal\CPM\CelestialPriceMoves.UI.exe")
WinWait('Celestial Price Moves    (Current Version: 1.3.14, Release Date: 03/08/2014)')
WinActivate("Celestial Price Moves  (Current Version 1.3.14, Release Date: 03/08/2014)")
Sleep(4000)

AutoItSetOption('MouseCoordMode' , 0)
AutoItSetOption('SendKeyDelay', 10)

For $i = 1 To UBound($aArray) - 1
    For $j = 0 To UBound($aArray, 2) - 1

;SET TRANSIT BODY (PLANET)
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Send("{TAB}")
Sleep(300)
Send("{DELETE}")
Send($aArray[$i][$j])
Sleep(300)

;~ ;PLANET RATE OF CHANGE MAXIMUM
MouseClick('primary', 320,156, 1, 0)
Sleep(300)
Send("{DELETE}")
Send("{DELETE}")
Send("{DELETE}")
sleep(200)
Send($aArray[$i][$j])
;~ Send("{TAB}")
sleep(500)

    Next
Next

I am trying to in the code

FIRST:  send tab 26 times  and then Send the first element of the array

SECOND: Click at another location in the program window and Send the 2nd element of the array.

 

When I execute the program the script seems to 

FIRST: send tab 26 times and then Send the first element of the array

SECOND: tab 26 times AGAIN!!!

THIRD: Click at another location in the program window and Send the 2nd element of the array.

 

What is wrong with my code that makes the loop do the 26 tabs two times?!?!?!?

For every row

   For each column

       tab 26x

      send array[$i[$j]

      mouseclick

      send 3 deletes

     send the same shit again because you havent incremented $j yet

Next

    Increment $j and do all of the above for every column on row $i

Next

    Now onto the next row, where we do it all again.

that is what your code does

 

Also, this line in the helpfile for 'send' could be used to clean up all those tabs

Quote

Send("{S 30}") ;Sends 30 'S' characters

Can you attach a bogus csv for test? Also,

Send("{TAB 26}")

Ok thanks IamSky.

So....my syntax is clearly wrong.  

I'm now confused as to what the correct syntax would be.

The goal I am trying to achieve is call on elements of the array at various points throughout my code.

 

I thought a nested for loop would achieve that aim...but I guess not???

Could you point me in the right direction??

Do you only want the "TAB x26 times" once?

The loop works well for repeated tasks, for example send a tab 26 times for every row in the column.

What do you need it to do? Im a bit confused sorry.

What do you mean " call on elements of the array at various points throughout my code. "

something like call a specific item in a specific row and column?

Ok...sorry if I have confused you.   

What I am trying to do is insert consecutive elements from my array at various points throughout my code.

 

For example:

I want to Tab 26 times

 Send $aArray [1][0]

Click Mouse

Send Delete 3 times

Send $aArray Element [1][1]

Click Mouse somewhere else

Send Tab 2 times

Send $aArray Element [2][0]

click mouse somewhere else

Send Delete 1 time

Send $aArray Element [2][1]

There's no cyclic action, I guess i would do this in a different way.

Example:

#include <Array.au3>
#include<file.au3>

local $aArray
_FileReadToArray("C:\Users\careca\Desktop\Simple.csv" , $aArray, 0, ",")
;_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

AutoItSetOption('MouseCoordMode' , 0)
AutoItSetOption('SendKeyDelay', 10)
;=============================================================================
For $i = 1 To UBound($aArray) - 1
    For $j = 0 To UBound($aArray, 2) - 1
        MsgBox(64, '', $aArray[$i][$j])
        If $aArray[$i][$j] = 'abc' Then
            abc()
        ElseIf $aArray[$i][$j] = 'Me' Then
            Me()
        EndIf
    Next
Next
;=============================================================================
Func abc()
    ConsoleWrite('abc - do this, do that - '&@MSEC&@CRLF)
    Beep(500, 500)
EndFunc
;=============================================================================
Func Me()
    ConsoleWrite('Me - do this, do that - '&@MSEC&@CRLF)
    Beep(800, 500)
EndFunc
;=============================================================================

This way you can set specific actions to specific items. Just have to place those in the according function.

BTW i added items to the csv, doesn't matter, i think you get the idea.

      Hi everyone,

      Is there a way to determine whether the script that is running, is already running, without using;
       
      If WinExists ?

      Or is there a way to use "If WinExists" to determine the script itself?

      The reason I am asking this is because if I want someone to run the .Exe I have and they rename it to whatever they want, how could I then determine in the script to check if there's already an .Exe open, or the script itself is already open?

      Should I use Class, or how do I achieve this?

      Thanks in advance.

      Id like to build a little helpertool for my boss in office but i dont know how to sart it.
      thats no complicated task. im working for an insurancecenter and have to search the customers in different orders and different tags.
      due to my boss is old and not really commen with pc he saves the customers without system.
      eg, customer andreas statham got an insurenca for his car then i got to search for
      andreas statham car, andreas car statham, car andreas statham, statham andreas car, statham car andreas, car statham andreass etc to find all the files from this customer in the harddrive.
      some customers also are fmiliarnamed in one file like andreas statam and monika rog are married an both got a carinsurance then i got to earch for
      andreas statham monika rog car, andreas statham monika car rog,.... this can take real long to find the right customer if i do it from hand.
      how can i realise this someone in here got an excamlple script or has any sugestion?

I would like to have the program not stopping me from typing more after that word. Like when i type a word it auto search it on clarify without making me stop typing and if i want to change i can do that and if im fine that word i can just keep typing and it will search after the next word.

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.

      I need to open an application and send it keys in Session 0.  I have exe's working locally, I can see the application open in session 0 through interactive services, but my send commands do not go to the application.  The following article running-autoit-session-0, directs me to use ControlSend() however my application has no controls that can be identified by AutoIt v3 Window Info.  Get All Windows Controls also returned nothing for the application's handle.  
      What are my options?  
      Can this be done with AutoIt?
      Is there a different "relatively simple" library/tool to use? (I am familiar with C# if there is a viable library there )
