alternative to return multiple variables?


Recommended Posts

Cheers,
I have a plan to develop something but there is a problem. I want to develop a load function, this function will generate two arrays with totally different values and the problem is how AutoIT could return these two different arrays in one function. Here's an example of what I'm trying to say:

local $aArray1, $aArray2
$aArray1, $aArray2 = _Test_func()
Func _Test_func()
local $aArrayA = [1, 2, 3]
local $aArrayB = [4, 5, 6]
return $aArrayA, $aArrayB
EndFunc

I think that global array or ByRef parameters would be the best (and the most simple) solution.

 

But here is another quite simple example/solution using (1D) array of (two) arrays:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <Debug.au3>

local $aArray0, $aArray1, $aArray2

$aArray0 = _Test_func()
$aArray1 = $aArray0[0]
$aArray2 = $aArray0[1]
_DebugArrayDisplay($aArray1)
_DebugArrayDisplay($aArray2)

Func _Test_func()
    Local $aArrayRet[2]
    local $aArrayA = [1, 2, 3]
    local $aArrayB = [4, 5, 6]
    $aArrayRet[0] = $aArrayA
    $aArrayRet[1] = $aArrayB
    return $aArrayRet
EndFunc
