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}")
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,
      i have a code which generates two numeric outputs.i have to save them in excel.
      Is there any way to export them to specific cells in excel???

      Howdy All
      I've gone around and around in circles wasting hours trying to fix this problem to no avail so I thought I would try posting for help given there are some real smart people in this forum.
      Background
      I have 5 separate .au3 scripts that all do different basic tasks. For example:
      1.au3 = opens Chrome browser to obtain information from a specific website then closes
      2.au3 = opens an Excel workbook to run a macro then saves and closes
      3.au3 = Open two seperate workbooks and transfers data from one to the other then saves and closes
      4.au3 = .......etc
      5.au3 = .......etc
      These 5 separate scripts, doing completely different tasks, need to each run once per day at 5 different designated times within a day and then close. For example:
      1.au3 = 10am
      2.au3 = 12pm
      3.au3 = 2pm
      4.au3 = 4pm
      5.au3 = 5pm
      Problem
      I can not get these different scripts to reliably run at their designated times. When I manually run these scripts individually by using 'Go F5' they work perfectly. If I convert these scripts to an .exe and manually run each one they work about 98% of time.
      How can I schedule these different .au3 files or associated .exe files to reliably run each day at different times?
      Attempts To Fix The Issue
      1. I have tried converting each .au3 script into their own .exe file and use Window's Task Scheduler to run these .exe files at their designated time but the success rate  of running each .exe in full, to completion, without error is very low at about 30%. Things that commonly go wrong include a browser not opening but movement still continues on the desk top. Other times things just do not happen at all.
      2. I have Windows 7 64 bit and have tried creating and running both (x86) and (x64) .exe files but again reliability problems exist;
      3. I have also tried moving each .exe file to the My Documents folder as I read someone that keeping your files on your desktop ties your files to individual Windows user profiles which can cause AutoIt operating errors. Not sure if this is correct but thought I would try it anyway. It did not fix my issue.
      4. I installed a program called AlwaysUp which supposedly always reliably runs in the background and will reliably execute your AutoIt script or .exe files. Still have significant reliability issues.
      Therefore, can someone please provide advice on how I can get my 5 different .au3 files to run at 5 designated times through the day, every day, without fail? Overtime I will be creating more and more different .au3 files to run certain tasks throughout the day and do not want to create one large AutoIt file that continually runs and attempts to do all the different tasks itself.
      Any help is very appreciated.
      Thanks
      Dan

      Hi all,
      I built an AutoIt application that interacts with several other applications/software. Now, it's turn to interfact with Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS).
      Does anyone has a blog, demo, script to share?
      Thanks!

      This is my first time here so please dont bombard me that what a silly question I am asking!!
      I have 500 rows (A1:A500) in a spreadsheet and I just want to copy one by one row and then paste into another application and then press enter, loop should repeat this until finishes all 500 rows.
      I have looked at clipget(), clip(put() but dont know how to select next row in next turn. I also looked at Array to store but again no luck. Can some guide me please..

      0down votefavorite   In my current project, Excel macro open AutoIt script using a function Call Shell("location of autoit script").
      For proper functioning of AutoIt script it's need to be close parent Excel workbook, so this closing Excel action is written in AutoIt script itself.
      But as soon as AutoIt script close parent Excel workbook then script get pause and it do nothing.
      How open the AutoIt script from Excel workbook and after that parent Workbook get close?
