Efficient function/way to delete an entire array?

4 posts in this topic

Right now, I'm just looping through the elements and using _ArrayDelete but is there just a function I can pass an array to make all of it's contents gone? i.e. _ArrayEmpty($arr)??

AutoIt makes it easy. Simply reassigning a value to the array, or allowing it to go out of scope is enough to destroy the array. (Yes, nested arrays would be properly destroyed as well)

So basically, if you have

Global $avArray[100000]

and assign values to it, doing something like

$avArray = 0

is enough to delete the entire array.

To empty an array you can use Dim. eg; Dim $Arr[100]

#include <Array.au3>

Dim $Arr[101]; To create an array

; fill an array with data
For $i = 0 To UBound($Arr) -1
    $Arr[$i] = $i
Next    

_ArrayDisplay($Arr, "Contents of $Arr array")

Dim $Arr[101]; To create an array

_ArrayDisplay($Arr, "Dim $Arr[101]")

$Arr = 0 ; To destroy array

MsgBox(0, "IsArray($Arr)", IsArray($Arr) <> 0)

Cheers
