Need some help understanding...

Recommended Posts

Need some help understanding why the ConsoleWrite works inside 2nd For loop but not out side. Between Audit Wiki, Help file , Forum searching (lots of code reading), and YouTube ( shout out to TutsTeach), I have not been able to find the reason why. 

$sIniPath = "installLog.ini"

; - Get section name
 $iniSctionNames = IniReadSectionNames($sIniPath)


; - Get Keys and Vaules
For $a = 1 to UBound($iniSctionNames) - 1
    $keys = IniReadSection($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[$a])
    For $b = 1 to UBound($keys) - 1
        $oldSysInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[1], $keys[$b][0], "")
        $PntIPInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[2], $keys[$b][0], "")
        $NewPCInfor = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[3], $keys[$b][0], "")

        ;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF)
    Next
;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF)
Next


ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo)

My intention is to use the variables later for Listboxes. Any explanation, forum post links or whatever would help. Sorry also very very new to Autoit.

Also here's the ini file.

[OldSysInfo]
4=192.168.0.4|DESKTOP-RDIU2SN|R90M05Q8
5=192.168.0.5|SD0123456789101|R9WGP9P
6=192.168.0.6|SD0123456789102|R9WGP9PT
3=192.168.0.3|DESKTOP-3RS4LKL|R9WGP9P
23=192.168.0.23|SD0123456789102|MXL1234P5I

[PrinterIp]
50=192.168.0.50
48=192.168.0.48
47=192.168.0.47

[NewSysInfo]
newPC = SD0123456789adfs|192.168.0.185|2UA1234FTR

Thank you for your time.

Make sure that $oldSysInfo isn't empty at that time:

ConsoleWrite(">" & $oldSysInfo & "<" & @CRLF)

also, you are trying to read from a sectionName with keys that are not present in that sections, so you get empty values.
In the last read you make to set the $oldSysInfo variable, you are trying to find  the key 'newPC' within the [OldSysInfo] section, and since this key is not found there, you get an empty value. Try this snippet to "see" what happens

#include <array.au3>
$sIniPath = "installLog.ini"

; - Get section name
$iniSctionNames = IniReadSectionNames($sIniPath)
; _ArrayDisplay($iniSctionNames, "$iniSctionNames")

; - Get Keys and Vaules
For $a = 1 To UBound($iniSctionNames) - 1
    $keys = IniReadSection($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[$a])
    ; _ArrayDisplay($keys, "$keys")
    For $b = 1 To UBound($keys) - 1
        $oldSysInfo = IniRead($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[1], $keys[$b][0], "(?) key " & $keys[$b][0] & " not found in " & $iniSctionNames[1])
        $PntIPInfo = IniRead($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[2], $keys[$b][0], "(?) key " & $keys[$b][0] & " not found in " & $iniSctionNames[2])
        $NewPCInfor = IniRead($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[3], $keys[$b][0], "(?) key " & $keys[$b][0] & " not found in " & $iniSctionNames[3])

        ConsoleWrite("[" & $iniSctionNames[1] & '] ' & $keys[$b][0] & '=' & $oldSysInfo & @TAB & "[" & $iniSctionNames[2] & '] ' & $keys[$b][0] & '=' & $PntIPInfo & @TAB & "[" & $iniSctionNames[3] & '] ' & $keys[$b][0] & '=' & $NewPCInfor & @LF)
    Next
    ConsoleWrite("------------------------" & @CRLF & $oldSysInfo & @CRLF & "========================" & @CRLF) ; $oldSysInfo & @LF)
Next

ConsoleWrite("> " & $oldSysInfo & " <" & @CRLF & @CRLF)

Thank you Water and Chimp, the logic check helped. Realize now that what I wanted to do was this... 

Global $sIniPath = "installLog.ini"
;ConsoleWrite($sIniPath)

$iniSctionNames = IniReadSectionNames($sIniPath)
; _ArrayDisplay($iniSctionNames, "$iniSctionNames")
$keys1 = IniReadSection($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[1])
$keys2 = IniReadSection($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[2])
$keys3 = IniReadSection($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[3])
;_ArrayDisplay($keys1, "$keys")
ConsoleWrite($keys1[1][1])

And Chimp thank you for code below..

;_ArrayDisplay($keys1, "$keys")

Just could not get my brain to understand what the Help file was talking about. Let alone make it do anything.

Don't know if I can add to this topic or not. So if I'm wrong please advise proper etiquette.

Need to ask for some additional understanding. 

What have I gotten wrong with the below code? ArrayDisplays shows that $keys2 has data and ConsoleWrite write the correct text, but the ListView is blank. Still using the same Ini file posted at the top of the topic.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <GUIListView.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>


Global $sIniPath = "installLog.ini"
;ConsoleWrite($sIniPath)

$iniSctionNames = IniReadSectionNames($sIniPath)
 ;_ArrayDisplay($iniSctionNames, "$iniSctionNames")
 $keys2 = IniReadSection($sIniPath, $iniSctionNames[2])
_ArrayDisplay($keys2 , "$keys2")


; Create GUI
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 600, 500)

; Create ListView

$cLV = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 10, 10, 580, 300)

For $i = 1 To UBound($keys2) - 1
ConsoleWrite($keys2[$i][1] & @CRLF)

_GUICtrlListView_AddArray($cLV, $keys2[$i][0])
    
Next

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

WEnd

And I did try it with GUICtrlListView_AddArray($cLV, $Keys2[$i][1]) with the same result.

Not sure this topic is still open and after looking at code thinking I should move this to GUI.

      Hi Virtual People,
      My array works perfectly fine. However, what is the best practice if the line in the array doesn't have the correct amount of columns and if I can add a placeholder?

       
      For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") Next

      hi all,
      reviewing the forum, this thread is applicable: 
       
       
      I wanted to know if there is now a better way to do this?
      In essence, I load a tab delimited txt file into an array (works well). I used tab, as some fields in the original csv contains commas.
      However, I needed autoit to manipulate this array, and output it as a csv.
      IF my array contains items with a comma, without double quotes around the field, then how best do I get a csv out of this?
      My current workaround is to filewritefromarray tab delimited, then open it in excel and save as a csv. I will need to check this to see how the address fields behave that contain a comma.
       
      Any thoughts would be appreciated.

      Hi All,

      I would like to know how you would take a FileLineRead and insert it into an array which then inserts it into Excel?
      One thing to know is the files content is broken up, so I only use half of the content within $FileRead1.
      So its imperative that the $value1, $value2, etc variables be used. 
      Code below:
      $FileRead1 = FileReadLine("C:\temp\sample.txt",1) For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] $value4 = $input[4] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value4, "D1") Next

      Hello,
      I'm trying to write a script that moves copies excel cells into an array. I'll than manipulate the values and send array into another program. 
      I don't want range to be specific to a workbook, or sheet, or set of cells.
      I want user to be able to highlight desired cells and to copy either normally ("Ctrl+C") or by a hotkey ("Alt+C"). 
      Could someone help me with this?
      Thank you,
      I've tried to write the framework: (edited)
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> HotKeySet("!v", "Pastedata") While True Sleep(1000) WEnd func Makearray() local $bArray ;User has cells already copied ;Convert clipboard into an array ;I don;t know how excel stores data to clipboard so don;t know how to bring it into array _Arraydisplay($bArray) MsgBox(0,0,$bArray) return $bArray endfunc func Pastedata() Local $aArray MsgBox(0,0,"wait",1) ;make array based on assumption user has already copied a range to clipboard $aArray = Makearray() ;paste code ;don;t worry about this I got the rest endfunc

      I want to make a while loop, that creates variables based on a array. For thist I created the array $iDsO with the number and the name of folders in an other folder. Every folder has a different name an I want to create variables(arrays) for each folder that show me all the files in that folder. For example: I have the Folder \Folder1. In it there are the Folders \1, \2, \3. In 1, 2 and 3 there are some files(.png). The array for Folder1 is $iDsO and now I want to crate the arrays $iDsO1, $iDsO2 and $iDsO3 with the files in them can I make something like this:
      While $iDs > 0 ;$iDs is the number of files in Folder1>> $iDsO[0] $iDs#here should come the Foldername for example '1'# = _FileListtoArray(@ProgramFilesDir&"\Folder1\"&$iDsO[$iDs]) $iDs = $iDs - 1 Wend So that in the End I have three variabels ($iDs1, $iDs2 and $iDs3)
       
      Is this posible or if not what could I do instead ( I don´t know the number of folders in Folder1 in the begining).
