Storing Many Values

10 posts in this topic

Is it true that the array only holds 21 elements? If so, I'm looking for a good way to read all the files in a directory and then save all the file names to be recalled later in the program. Should i use a single variable or have the program create a txt document on the fly and read the names from there? What is the best way to go about this?

That is 21 for the _ArrayCreate UDF. You can make your own easy as the example below shows.

Global $array[30] = [1, 2, 3, 4, ... ]

... is more elements. So you can have many elements in your array.

_ArrayCreate existed before the new array syntax was added.

:whistle:

Edit:

More array info on the Wiki...

so im guessing there is no limit to the size of the array.... i would just have to get how many elements i want to put it and create the array using that value. Im guessing you can also increase the size of the array at your leisure.

I am not sure of the limit if their is one even, but you just create what you need to save memory. ReDim is used to resize arrays.

How so? I have never encountered that limit.

I was joking.....

But, I could automate the values to be a number and see if it will reach that value....

:whistle: And that would prooooooove... what exactly? We already know the limitation.

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
