_ArrayToString()

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

is there a reason why _ArrayToString() returns "" and sets an error if there's only one element in the array? I think it should return the element (without any separator) instead. Does anyone else support this RFC?

Hmm... :)

;Test _ArrayToString()
#include <array.au3>
Global $MyString, $MyArray[1] = ["Chunky"]
_TestIt()

_ArrayAdd($MyArray, "Funky")
_ArrayAdd($MyArray, "Monkey")
_TestIt()

$MyArray = StringSplit($MyString, ";")
_ArrayDisplay($MyArray, "_StringSplit()")

_TestIt()

Func _TestIt()
    $MyString = _ArrayToString($MyArray, ";")
    $SaveError = @error
    MsgBox(64, "Test _ArrayToString()", "Returned string = " & $MyString & @CRLF & _
            "@Error = " & $SaveError)
EndFunc   ;==>_TestIt

The helpfile make a point out it being the recipricol of StringSplit(), but for that you have to be sure to add start index = 1 (which is 0 by default). Then _StringSplit($MyString, ";") = _ArrayToString($MyArray, ";", 1). But your change won't hurt any already-written scripts, since it just eliminates an error condition, so it seems reasonable to me.

I like the idea... :(

P.S. This probably belongs in the v3 Idea Lab forum... perhaps some nice moderator would move the thread?

Well, if this RFC seams not be that interesting for the rest of you, I will do a quick hack for my own. :D

Thank you PsaltyDS for your support :D

what about you take the current Function and you write a proposal for changes in a way that no current implementations will brake ?

:P
