Resizing Global Array

Recommended Posts



I have one simple question:

With the keyword Dim you can resize an already existing array.

The Help File does not explicit say that the same is true for an array that was created with the keyword Global.

Is it valid to code something like that?:

Global $my_array[10]
Global $my_array[5]

Thanks for clarification! :whistle:

The command to use would be ReDim.

From help file


The ReDim keyword is similar to Dim, except that ReDim preserves the values in the array instead of removing the values while resizing an array. The number of dimensions must remain the same, or the old array will be forgotten during the ReDim. The array will retain the scope (Global or Local) that it had prior to resizing.
