_arraysort by stringmid?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

*another* problem to solve! Should be a quickie tho...

for a given array e.g.

$array[0] = "abc 001 abc"

$array[1] = "def 003 abc"

$array[2] = "abc 002 zxy"

$array[3] = "345 005 abc"

$array[4] = "abc 004 abc"

is it possible to sort the array by the middle 3 numbers (e.g. via stringmid($array[x],5,3))

so the array is sorted to:

$array[0] = "abc 001 abc"

$array[1] = "abc 002 zxy"

$array[2] = "def 003 abc"

$array[3] = "abc 004 abc"

$array[4] = "345 005 abc"

(note middle numbers are now in order)

???

Thanks in advance!!

I would temporarily add the primary key at the start of the array values... something like:

#include<array.au3>
Dim $array[5]
$array[0] = "abc 001 abc"
$array[1] = "def 003 abc"
$array[2] = "abc 002 zxy"
$array[3] = "345 005 abc"
$array[4] = "abc 004 abc"
For $x = 0 to UBound($array)-1
    $array[$x] = StringMid($array[$x],5,3) & $array[$x]
Next
_ArraySort($array)
For $x = 0 to UBound($array)-1
    $array[$x] = StringMid($array[$x],4)
Next
_ArrayDisplay($array)

Genius!! thank you!!!

You know one of the things I find most amazing about autoit (I've only been programming for a few months), is that there could be countless ways of achieving what you want a program to do, and it is possible that one way of doing something could be 30 - 40 lines of script but it gets the job done...

...then someone with a touch of innovation can do the same thing in 14 elegant lines of script!!!

How long before I pick up that sort of innovation!!!?!?!??!?! ha ha :)

Thanks again!!!
