How to use arrays?

14 posts in this topic

hi all,

i want to try to learn how to use arrays, but the F1 help file from SciTE isnt really user friendly.. and the other sample scripts here arent either :)

so, can anyone link me to some useufl beginner guides on arrays, or just post some really simple scripts?

what i'm trying to do is, for example, read "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" and then write all the entries into an ini file.

thanks for your help!

why are you using the Scite help file? You supposed to use the autoit help file, Start>Programs>Autoit v3>Beta>Autoit Help File

#include <Array.au3>

dim $E[20][20]

_Arraydisplay ($E); for looking on the one-dimension array of $E 200 rows.

for $i=1 to 5
$m=RegEnumVal ("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run",$i)
MsgBox (0,"this is $m",$m)
$E[1][$i]=$m
Next
_ArrayDisplay ($E)
for $i=1 to 5
$m=RegEnumVal ("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run",$i)
MsgBox (0,"this is $m",$m)
$E[$i][2]=$m
Next
_ArrayDisplay ($E)

have fun... :)

This should be close.

Func _BuildIni()
   Local $eArray [1][2], $Ini = @DesktopDir & "\Test.ini"
   Local $I, $Count = 1, $eReg = "", $rKey = "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"
   While 1
      $kVal = RegEnumVal($rKey, $Count)
      If @Error Then ExitLoop
      If StringInStr($kVal, ".dll") OR StringInStr($kVal, ".ocx") OR StringInStr($kVal, ".tbl") Then
         ReDim $eArray[UBound($eArray) + 1][2]
         $eArray[UBound($eArray) - 1][0] = $kVal
         $eArray[UBound($eArray) - 1][1] = RegRead($rKey, $kVal)
      EndIf
      $Count += 1
   Wend
   For $I = 1 To UBound($eArray) - 1
      IniWrite($Ini, "Run", $eArray[$i][0], $eArray[$i][1])
   Next
EndFunc  ;==>_BuildIni

thanks for the help erezlevi and GEOSoft.

@erezlevi, i dont know how i can really make use of that as i dont really understand that much of it.

@GEOSoft, when i compile this, it does nothing. when i add a _BuildIni() on top (to make it run the function or something) then still nothing happens.

sorry if i seem really stupid, but im still new to AutoIT3 :S

That was my fault. I was modifying a function that I already use and I forgot to remove an If statement that you don't need. here is the correction (Tested this time).

_BuildIni()

Func _BuildIni()
   Local $eArray [1][2], $Ini = @DesktopDir & "\Test.ini"
   Local $I, $Count = 1, $eReg = "", $rKey = "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"
   While 1
      $kVal = RegEnumVal($rKey, $Count)
      If @Error Then ExitLoop
         ReDim $eArray[UBound($eArray) + 1][2]
         $eArray[UBound($eArray) - 1][0] = $kVal
         $eArray[UBound($eArray) - 1][1] = RegRead($rKey, $kVal)
      $Count += 1
   Wend
   For $I = 1 To UBound($eArray) - 1
      IniWrite($Ini, "Run", $eArray[$i][0], $eArray[$i][1])
   Next
EndFunc ;==>_BuildIni

thanks you are right, its working. now i just need to figure out how to relate all those [0] and [1]'s with each other :)

Here is another example if your still confused.

Global $Array[3] = ["Hi, "Hello", "Bye"]
$GetInput = InputBox("", "Please type in a greeting:")
For $I = 1 To $Array[0]
    If $GetInput = $Array[$I] Then Beep(8000, 100)
Next

Actually, that example was pretty useless, but I hope you get the idea.

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

Actually, yes that is a way, and two reasons why it didn't work was that For $I = 1 should be For $I = 0, and the top array was correct. Here is the updated code:

Global $Array[3] = ["Hi", "Hello", "Bye"]
$GetInput = InputBox("", "Please type in a greeting:")
For $I = 0 To $Array[0]
    If $GetInput = $Array[$I] Then Beep(8000, 100)
Next

I could use UBound($Array) -1 instead of $Array[0] but $Array[0] does the same thing. :)

Thanks Gary.

How do you figure? $Array[0] contains "Hi"

Oh, I guess it only works for certain types of arrays. The arrays returned by the _Array() functions and things like _FileListToArray() return the number of items in an array with $Array[0].

Here is the fixed code:

Global $Array[4] = ["3", "Hi", "Hello", "Bye"]
$GetInput = InputBox("", "Please type in a greeting:")
For $I = 0 To $Array[0]
    If $GetInput = $Array[$I] Then Beep(8000, 100)
Next

The first $Array value, 3, tells how many greetings are in the array. So, now it works. :), And, thanks again Gary.

Don't get use to the offset of zero being the number in the array, that may change in the future.

Just figured if your going to tell someone how to use an array, it needs to be correct.
