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.

      Hey,
      what is more efficient, using multiple arrays or one multidimensional array?
       
      ; Hamster data structure using multiple arrays Global $HamsterCount = 6 Global $HamsterX[$HamsterCount] Global $HamsterY[$HamsterCount] ;giving each hamster an x and y position For $i=0 To $HamsterCount-1 $HamsterX[$i] = 0 $HamsterY[$i] = 0 Next ; The same hamster data structure using one multidimensional array Global $HAMSTER_COUNT = 6 Global Enum $HAMSTER_X, _ $HAMSTER_Y, _ $HAMSTER_MAX Global $Hamsters[$HAMSTER_COUNT][$HAMSTER_MAX] ;giving each hamster an x and y position For $i=0 To $HAMSTER_COUNT-1 $Hamsters[$i][$HAMSTER_X] = 0 $Hamsters[$i][$HAMSTER_Y] = 0 Next

      I know how JSON works. However JSON data is typically received from web based servers. 
       
      My question is:
      Has anyone considered to use, or currently actively using JSON as an internal data container? 
      Internal here as in an ordinary AutoIt data type, generated, populated and manipulated within an AutoIt script, without any external data sources. 
      The JSON and BinaryCall UDFs work well and appear the de facto defaults. Are there any thoughts on using JSON for internal variable values instead of the typical array? 
      Also, there can be situations where such a JSON collection contains an array and it will have to be parsed using typical array functions. 
      Currently I am working on a small project where I have to keep and use various identifiers from different sources. There are several ideas in this regard, some involving SQL child tables and arrays stored with keys (maps), which lead me to think that JSON may be a more suitable data container. It readily shrinks and stretches, allowing for dynamic data growth.  JSONs ability to add new repeating data groups on the fly makes it particularly powerful and appealing. 
      Ideas and suggestions welcome

      Hello all! I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday festivities. 
      I'm working on a script that involves copying a string of text from an Excel workbook and searching for it in a particular website's search tool. If a result is found, it will do something. If not, it will do something else.
      So far, it can successfully execute the search -- and then it shows me the results in an array.
      Screenshot of the successful search:

      The search results in an array:

      My main question is: How do I create an If... Then based on what is found in the search results? I need additional tasks to run if Col 1, Row 2 in the array contains the exact string I searched for. (Am I going about this the right way?)
      My next question (I might make a new thread for): How do I make the whole thing loop, as in, copy the next cell in the Excel sheet and do the whole thing over again until there's no more? I understand that a For/Next loop thingy would be used. I just don't know how. Loops are really confusing to me.
      Thank you all for your guidance and have a happy new year!

      hi,
      i have checkboxes and each checkbox that checked, i put in array. 
      now, im stuck on how to loop the checked array and store in in one variable. what i can do now, is only write the result into a text file. 
      below is the code:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> ;~ #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> Global $Count = 3 Global $CheckBoxP[$Count] Global $step[$Count] global $array1[1] Global $ExitResult $hGUI = GUICreate("Summary Steps", 500, 400) GUISetFont(12, 400, "Tahoma") GUICtrlCreateLabel( "Please Select the Summary Steps for Script Check", 70, 20) GUISetFont(10, 400, "Tahoma") Global $array_Pstep[3] = ["fix2","fix1","fix3"] global $step[3] = ["2","3","4"] $Spacing = 50 For $i = 0 To UBound($array_Pstep) - 1 $CheckBoxP[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($array_Pstep[$i], 80, $Spacing + (20 * $i), 65, 17) Next $submit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Submit",180, 280, 80, 30) $exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit",180, 320, 80, 30) GUISetState() While 1 $Msg = GUIGetMsg() Select case $Msg=$submit For $i = 0 To $Count - 1 If GUICtrlRead($CheckBoxP[$i]) = $GUI_CHECKED Then _ArrayAdd($array1, $step[$i]) EndIf Next Global $logfilerray = @WorkingDir & "\checkedlist.txt" FileDelete ($logfilerray) Global $readlogfile = FileOpen($logfilerray,1) for $a = 1 to UBound($array1) - 1 ;~ $var=$array1[$a] FileWriteLine($readlogfile,$array1[$a]) Next FileClose($readlogfile) Exit case $Msg=$exit $ExitResult = MsgBox(1,"Summary Step", "Continue to Exit ?") if $ExitResult = 1 Then ;ok Exit EndIf Exit EndSelect WEnd

      How do you perform a nested loop function with a multidimensional array from 2 lists.
      for i in list1
      (open file) extract variable
          while open for i in list 2
          (open file2) extract variable
       
      var1 + var2 = (search term)

      The list sizes will more than likely consist of different lengths.
       
      What is the best approach to accomplishing this method?
