good morning everybody.
today i liked to share an small example with you
which it an function to read the registry values as an array
the result array is 2d array witch
$a_array[n][0] = value name
$a_array[n][1] = value Data
$a_array[0][0] = values count

here's the function

#include <Array.au3>
#include <WinAPIReg.au3>
#include <APIRegConstants.au3>
    Local $a_array = _RegReadToArray("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run")
If @error Then
    MsgBox(16, "error", @error)
    Exit
EndIf
_ArrayDisplay($a_array)
Func _RegReadToArray($s_RegKey)
    Local $a_KeySplitInfo = StringSplit($s_RegKey, "\\", 2)
    If UBound($a_KeySplitInfo) <= 1 Then
        $a_KeySplitInfo = StringSplit($s_RegKey, "\", 2)
        If UBound($a_KeySplitInfo) <= 1 Then Return (1, 1, 0)
    EndIf
    Local $H_KeyInfo = "", $s_RegKeyInfo = ""
    Switch $a_KeySplitInfo[0]
        Case "hklm", "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE", "hklm64", "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE64"
            $H_KeyInfo = $HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
        Case "hkCu", "HKEY_CURRENT_USER", "hkCU64", "HKEY_CURRENT_USER64"
            $H_KeyInfo = $HKEY_CURRENT_USER
        Case "hkCr", "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT", "HKCR64", "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT64"
            $H_KeyInfo = $HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
        Case "HKU", "HKEY_USERS", "HKU64", "HKEY_USERS64"
            $H_KeyInfo = $HKEY_USERS
        Case Else
            Return SetError(2, 2, 0)
    EndSwitch
    _ArrayDelete($a_KeySplitInfo, 0)
    $s_RegKeyInfo = _ArrayToString($a_KeySplitInfo, "\")
    Local $H_KeyInfoOpen = _WinAPI_RegOpenKey($H_KeyInfo, $s_RegKeyInfo, $KEY_READ)
    Local $A_KeyInfo = _WinAPI_RegQueryInfoKey($H_KeyInfoOpen)
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 1, 0)
    _WinAPI_RegCloseKey($H_KeyInfoOpen)
    Local $A_RegVal[$A_KeyInfo[2] + 1][2]
    Local $iV = 1, $s_RegRead = ""
    While 1
        $s_RegVal = RegEnumVal($s_RegKey, $iV)
        If @error <> 0 Then ExitLoop
        $s_RegRead = RegRead($s_RegKey, $s_RegVal)
        If Not (@error) Then
            $A_RegVal[$iV][0] = $s_RegVal
            $A_RegVal[$iV][1] = $s_RegRead
        EndIf
        $iV += 1
    WEnd
    $A_RegVal[0][0] = UBound($A_RegVal) - 1
    If $A_RegVal[0][0] >= 1 Then
        Return $A_RegVal
    Else
        Return SetError(3, 3, 0)
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>_RegReadToArray


i hope you benefit from it

with my greetings

Thank you! This is nice!

I guess you're using msgbox for demonstrative purposes. Easier to see output though when maybe just add #include <Array.au3> at the top

and instead of the msgBox to display each value one at a time, just use _ArrayDisplay($a_array) (outside of the loop)

(you probably already knew that) Thanks again though!

My 2 cents worth :)

  • Do not unse Local in a Loop
  • Do not use ReDim for every entry - Slooows down your script. Create/enlarge the Array in steps of 100 and set the real size when all registry keys have been processed.

      Hi
      Trying this from autoit v3.3.14.5 and SCITE 3.19.102.1901.0 :
      help file , page "Language Reference - Variables" , sample autoit script about maps:

      Maps must be declared before use by defining their scope using the 'Global/Local/Static' keywords. Local $mControls[]
      So is my test script : only with this local declation.
      -check syntax is OK
      - running script : 

      test.au3" (13) : ==> Variable subscript badly formatted.: Local $mControls[] Local $mControls[^ ERROR ->14:51:49 AutoIt3.exe ended.rc:1
      any clue ?

      Hi
      This piece of code creates and reads OK a key at  "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" and can be changed for a key at "HKEY_CURRENT_USER"
      $sta= RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Command Processor", "wav", "REG_SZ", "5555") MsgBox(4096,"wrote", $sta &@cr& @error) $zz= RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Command Processor", "wav") MsgBox(4096,"readed","="&$zz &@cr& @error) Exit With  HKEY_CURRENT_USER, in RegEdit we can see the created key, and we can create the key by hand/RegEdit and everything Works OK.
      At  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE we can´t see the created key above  thru RegEdit, but it Works (even not seeing, I can read). But  if I create "by hand"/RegEdit  the key,  it can´t read it with   $zz= RegRead  ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.... above.
      I´m the PC´s WIN.7 administrator. Even so I ran RegEdit as administrator and also the compiled AU3 and also plain. No changes.
      edit: even if Try   "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AAA", "wav", the same holds true.
      $sta= RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AAA", "wav", "REG_SZ", "4444") MsgBox(4096,"wrote", $sta &@cr& @error) $zz= RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AAA", "wav") MsgBox(4096,"readed","="&$zz &@cr& @error) Exit Seems that it creates this key at another place.... I can read the above value ("4444"), even after a boot, even the key not showing in regedit. And if I create it by hand key AAA/wav with a distinct value (666), t, it continues Reading the old value = 444.
      Thanks

      Hello, i want to search several directories for files with the largest numbers behind them (Like "video123") . They dont have a datatype. But there are also files with longer names and datatypes in these folders (Like "video778.mp4"). Is it possible to filter the _FileListToArray Syntax from
      to smth. like
       
      Here is my Code
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <array.au3> #include <File.au3> $filedir = @ScriptDir & "\" _checkfile() Func _checkfile() ConsoleWrite("______________________" & @CRLF) Local $arr[3] = ["music", "picture", "video"] For $i = 0 To UBound($arr) - 1 Local $arrayfiles = _FileListToArray($filedir & $arr[$i], $arr[$i] & "*", 1) If @error = 1 Then ConsoleWrite($arr[$i] & "Error 1") EndIf If @error = 4 Then ConsoleWrite($arr[$i] & "Error 2") ;Exit EndIf $arrayfilter = _ArrayMax($arrayfiles, 0, 1) Global $stringfiles = StringReplace($arrayfilter, $arr[$i], "") ConsoleWrite($arrayfilter & @CRLF) Next EndFunc ;==>_checkfile
