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

Quote

_FileListToArray($filedir & $arr[$i], $arr[$i] & "*", 1)

to smth. like

Quote

_FileListToArray($filedir & $arr[$i], $arr[$i] & " 3 Numbers", 1)

 

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

Yes, you'll just need to loop through your array to strip out the music/picture/video text before getting the max...

; Strip out the current file prefix
For $f = 0 To UBound($arrayFiles) - 1
    $arrayFiles[$f] = StringReplace($arrayFiles[$f], $arr[$i], "")
Next

; Get the max
$arrayfilter = _ArrayMax($arrayFiles, 0, 1)

; Put the prefix back
$arrayfilter = $arr[$i] & $arrayfilter

All my code provided is Public Domain... but it may not work. ;) Use it, change it, break it, whatever you want.

Thx for the fast reply, but my problem is that i only need the files with the name f.e. video544 (always 3 numbers behind it). There are also files like video737.mp4 included. But i dont need them, but when i search for the maxnumber i'll always get the one with .mp4 in the end, instead of f.e. video544.... I need a solution that replace the "*" filter in _FileListToArray to something like "3 numbers"...

Maybe  "???" instead of  "*".  I think this will work. Not exactly what you want, but closer ("videoABC" will also be found)

Yes ??? is a option, but it includes letters aswell, is there a filter that includes only numbers?

To ignore non-numbers, just wrap it in Number(), it returns 0 when the value isn't a number, so it will never be the max :)

; Strip out the current file prefix
For $f = 0 To UBound($arrayFiles) - 1
    $arrayFiles[$f] = Number(StringReplace($arrayFiles[$f], $arr[$i], ""))
Next

; Get the max
$arrayfilter = _ArrayMax($arrayFiles, 1, 1)

; Put the prefix back
$arrayfilter = $arr[$i] & $arrayfilter

ArrayMax should get largest integer, not character

This sounds good, i'll test it out tomorrow and update this post :)

It is, as far as I know, not possible to use a regular expression as a filter in _FileListToArray(Rec).

Here is a variation with FileFindFirstFile and FileFindNextFile (will also match video001). I moved the array from the function to the global scope too.

In the attachment you will find a Zip with test files (dummies only). Like in your script the subfolders \music , \picture and \video are used.

#include <File.au3>

Global $g_sFileDir
Global $g_aArr[3] = ["music", "picture", "video"]

For $i = 0 To UBound($g_aArr) - 1
    $g_sFileDir = @ScriptDir & "\" & $g_aArr[$i] & "\"
    ConsoleWrite("< "& $g_aArr[$i] & " -> highest number = " & _GetFileHighNum($g_sFileDir, $g_aArr[$i]) & @CRLF)
Next

; ---------------------------------------------------------------------
Func _GetFileHighNum($sFileDir, $sSearchName)
    Local $hSearch, $sCurrentFile, $iMaxNum = 0, $iNum = 0
    $hSearch = FileFindFirstFile($sFileDir & $sSearchName & '*')
    If $hSearch = -1 Then Return 0
    While 1
        $sCurrentFile = FileFindNextFile($hSearch)
        If @error Then
            FileClose($hSearch)
            Return $iMaxNum
        EndIf
        If StringRegExp($sCurrentFile, '(?i)^' & $sSearchName & '\d{3}$') Then
            $iNum = Number(StringRegExpReplace($sCurrentFile, '\D', ''))
            If (Not @error) And ($iNum >= $iMaxNum) Then $iMaxNum = $iNum
        EndIf
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>_GetFileHighNum

moved FileClose($hSearch) to if @error

You are welcome 🙂.

I have made one minor change : FileClose($hSearch) was moved from the end of the function behind if @error... (view my code sample above), because I leave the while loop with Return, not with ExitLoop.

      Hi dear friends!, i'm sorry for creating a new thread (a new problem), i have over than 9 lists that i want to combine them to be this (in this example, there are 3 test files):


      I've written a little code for splitting main information, but i really confused how to make results as "Output.txt", here is that code:
       
      $sRegex_1 = StringRegExp(FileRead("1.txt"), '(?s:(?<=\=\=\r\n)(.*?)(?=\r\n\=\=))', 3) $sRegex_2 = StringRegExp(FileRead("2.txt"), '(?s:(?<=\=\=\r\n)(.*?)(?=\r\n\=\=))', 3) $sRegex_3 = StringRegExp(FileRead("3.txt"), '(?s:(?<=\=\=\r\n)(.*?)(?=\r\n\=\=))', 3) For $i = 0 To UBound($sRegex_1) - 1 ConsoleWrite($sRegex_1[$i] & @CRLF) For $j = 0 To UBound($sRegex_2) - 1 ConsoleWrite($sRegex_2[$j] & @CRLF) For $k = 0 To UBound($sRegex_3) - 1 ConsoleWrite($sRegex_3[$k] & @CRLF) Next Next Next

      hello evrybody
      here is an example about how to split your texts using a delimiter with the ability to select how much of delimiters shows in each colum  with $i_number
      e.g
      you have a long text and you want to split it in an array
      that evry colum have a number (n) of lines
      i made a function that do that for you
      just call it with a three params
      $s_text
      your text
      $i_number
      the number that you want to put in each col
      $s_siparator
      the siparator
      default is "|"
      here is the function with example
      i hope that it will be useful for you
       
      ****
       
      #include <Array.au3> $s_txt = "some text1some text2|some text3|some text4|some text5|some text6" $array = splitText($s_txt, 2) _ArrayDisplay($array) Func splitText($s_text, $i_number, $s_siparator = "|") Local $a_TXT = StringSplit($s_text, $s_siparator) Local $a_Return[$a_TXT[0] + 1] If ($a_TXT[0] <= $i_number) Or ($i_number <= 0) Then ReDim $a_Return[2] $a_Return[0] = 1 $a_Return[1] = $s_text Return $a_Return EndIf Local $i_Processed = 1, $i_arrayProcessed = 1 Do For $i = $i_Processed To ($i_Processed + $i_number) - 1 If ($a_TXT[0] < $i) Then ExitLoop If Not ($a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed]) Then $a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed] = $a_TXT[$i] Else $a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed] &= $s_siparator & $a_TXT[$i] EndIf $i_Processed += 1 Next $i_arrayProcessed += 1 Until ($a_TXT[0] < $i_Processed) ReDim $a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed] $a_Return[0] = $i_arrayProcessed - 1 Return $a_Return EndFunc ;==>splitText
      accept my greetings

      good morning

      it a map of my forums

      e.g
      a system (as category)
      windows (as sub category)
      software (as an child item in the windows category)
      .....
      i don't know how to do that
      so, i know that i can do that using the json functions
      but i need your help about how we can do it as the type that i told you
      by the way i need to put the sub info for each item in an array that give me the ability to manage my items
      e.g
      can post thread
      can reply
      message cound ...
      you just give me a small example and i can continue.
      am sorry if this against the rules of the forum.

      I need to dynamically resize my 2d array while looping. 
      I know this code:
      ReDim $rArray[UBound($rArray) + 1] works for the rows, however, I also need to increase the columns. How would i go about increasing both rows and columns while looping?

      error: Array(): undefined function. Not sure how to resolve this.
