Array size

9 posts in this topic

What is the maximum size of an AutoIT array variable? I am getting this error - "Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.: ". I'm thinking my array is too big.

Arrays: A maximum of 64 dimensions and/or a total of 16 million elements

Post the code snipet that is generating the error. It is MUCH more likely you have a bad array reference syntax than your array is too big.

:shocked:

Is it possible that's only theoretical (the dimensions part)? I have a 100x100 array that seems to work fine.

I suspect what you have is a 2-D array:

Dim $avTest[100][100]

A 64-D array is left as an exercise for the student...

:shocked:

Edit: You can't declare all twenty dimensions with 100 indexes each because you get more than 16 million elements. If all the dimensions are 2 indexes each, you can still only get to 24 dimensions (2 ^ 24 = about 16M). To create an array with 64 dimensions and still have less than 16 million elements total, more than half the dimensions have to be a single index.

Hmmm...

LOL, When I try to visualize anything bigger than a 3D array I get a headache. I believe brain cells start smoking at that point.


[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]

Thank you for your timely responses - and very educational.

PsaltyDS was correct. I was For...Nexting to 100 but my array only contained 3 elements. Now I need to find out why it only has 3 elements. It should have thousands....

I'll post back if I get stuck again.

Thanks for the help.
