Help me! I have question: How to create 3-dimensional array in AutoIt and possible this?

If possible show me simple example please.

The help file has example of a 2 dimensional array... follow the same convention for upto 64 dimensions IIRC...

Dim \$3dArray[\$x][\$y][\$z]

EDIT: I would love to see a practical use of 64 dimensions muttley

I can't see a use for more than 3 dimensions. If you need more than 3, AutoIt isn't the proper language because an object is much better suited.

Here is 9 dimensions:

```Dim \$array[3][2][2][2][2][2][2][2][2]

\$array[0][0][0][0][0][0][0][0][0] = "Milky Way"
\$array[0][1][0][0][0][0][0][0][0] = "Solar System"
\$array[0][1][1][0][0][0][0][0][0] = "Earth"
\$array[0][1][1][1][0][0][0][0][0] = "North America"
\$array[0][1][1][1][1][0][0][0][0] = "United States"
\$array[0][1][1][1][1][1][0][0][0] = "Ohio"
\$array[0][1][1][1][1][1][1][0][0] = "Columbus"
\$array[0][1][1][1][1][1][1][1][1] = "2880"

\$array[1][0][0][0][0][0][0][0][0] = "Andromeda"

\$array[2][0][0][0][0][0][0][0][0] = "Triangulum"```

Haha, I guess you could call that practical. One hell of a matrix to be created though. I suppose the only time you would ever need that is if you were parsing an XML file or something similar, but even then it is impractical because there are better ways muttley

Ok guys, i have a question:

```Global \$Array[4][2][2] ;Declare 3 dimensional array

\$Array[0][0][0] = 3 ;Number of array elements

;Filling 1 dimension (or filling 1-st element of the 3 dimensional array?)
\$Array[1][0][0] = "A"
\$Array[2][0][0] = "a"
\$Array[3][0][0] = "1"

;Filling 2 dimension
\$Array[1][1][0] = "B"
\$Array[2][1][0] = "b"
\$Array[3][1][0] = "2"

;Filling 3 dimension
\$Array[1][1][1] = "C"
\$Array[2][1][1] = "c"
\$Array[3][1][1] = "3"

For \$i = 1 To \$Array[0][0][0]
MsgBox(0, "First dimension", \$Array[\$i][0][0])
MsgBox(0, "Secons dimension", \$Array[\$i][1][0])
MsgBox(0, "Third dimension", \$Array[\$i][1][1])
Next```

Above are correct? Or I just filled whole 3 dimensional array?

You did not fill the whole array. Try this:

```Global \$Array[4][2][2];Declare 3 dimensional array

\$Array[0][0][0] = 3;Number of array elements

; You forgot these:
\$Array[0][0][1] = "<Not Used>"
\$Array[0][1][0] = "<Not Used>"
\$Array[0][1][1] = "<Not Used>"

\$Array[1][0][0] = "A"
\$Array[2][0][0] = "a"
\$Array[3][0][0] = "Apple"

; ...and forgot these:
\$Array[1][0][1] = "B"
\$Array[2][0][1] = "b"
\$Array[3][0][1] = "Blueberry"

\$Array[1][1][0] = "C"
\$Array[2][1][0] = "c"
\$Array[3][1][0] = "Cherry"

\$Array[1][1][1] = "D"
\$Array[2][1][1] = "d"
\$Array[3][1][1] = "Dates"

\$sMsg = "\$Array[4][2][2]:" & @CRLF
For \$x = 0 To UBound(\$Array) - 1
For \$y = 0 To UBound(\$Array, 2) - 1
For \$z = 0 To UBound(\$Array, 3) - 1
\$sMsg &= "[" & \$x & "][" & \$y & "][" & \$z & "] = " & \$Array[\$x][\$y][\$z] & @CRLF
Next
Next
Next
MsgBox(64, "Results", \$sMsg)```
