Variable Array & Do Loop

Recommended Posts


I need to declare a variable array, such as a list of names, then do a loop applying each variable to the script until all variable have been used.

For instance:

Array: John, Mary, Bob, Alice

For x=1 to number of entries in array

do processing


Also is it possible to have this "array" be an external text file that I can edit outside of the script? That would allow me to compile my script and only edit the text file to add or take away names in the array.

Any ideas?

Look at the help file and search for _FileReadToArray which reads a specified file into an array.

This is an example from the help file:

#include <file.au3>
Dim $aRecords
If Not _FileReadToArray("error.log",$aRecords) Then
   MsgBox(4096,"Error", " Error reading log to Array     error:" & @error)
For $x = 1 to $aRecords[0]
    Msgbox(0,'Record:' & $x, $aRecords[$x])
