clearing an array

Recommended Posts

I'm sure there's a simple answer to this... but with this site's search feature i'm getting nowhere so I guess I should just ask.

How do you clear an array?

I'm calling a function that uses IniReadSection. IniReadSection reads in a section of an INI file and keeps the key/data pairs in a 2 dimensional array.

I call the function several times and I want to overwrite the array, but instead it keeps adding on to it (so I end up with duplicates, triplicates, etc)

I thought all I needed to do was pass some sort of $variable = "" command in at the beginning of the function but that doesn't seem to work.

Thoughs?

Thanks.

Would the function _ArrayDelete be suitable?

actually no, because that does it one element at a time...

but.... I just found out that I was incorrect on the problem. Re-calling the IniReadSection function *DOES* over-write the array.

As it turns out, the problem wasn't the array itself - it was in my GUI. I was feeding the results of the IniReadSection function to a ListBox and THAT was being called twice and was doubling up on the elements.

So - Problem solved and it has nothign to do with the topic title :lmao:

Thank you and sorry for wasting your time.
