buggy 2d arrays

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am trying to get specific arrays from a 2d array. will i have to create my own function for this or is there one already out there?

I have noticed some odd things with arrays and 2d arrays

global $arr1[2][2]= [[1, "one"], [2, "two"] ]

local $arr2 = $arr[1]; doesn't work
$arrvar = $arr1[1][0]; works to get the 2 from the second array


;The above doesn't work for what i wanted it for. But i found another way to do it

$var[2]= [1, "one"]
$var1[2]= [2, "two"]

$2darr[2]= [$var, $var1];if you do this though you can't use _arraydisplay()

;then you can later pull out either array into its own again, i haven't tried doing something like

$2darr[0][1]; it might work im not sure

_arraydisplay($2darr);shows up correctly as an array BUT doesn't show the 2d arrays as it would for $arr1

It would be nice if they would be identified as arrays either way, as it should be (an array is always an array as far as I'm concerned), unless you are having it act more like a mapping. which is completely different.

Anybody have any ideas or just what I have is the best it gets?

EDIT: Got home and could properly post and clean up my code

AutoIt help

A unique feature in AutoIt is the ability to copy arrays like this:

$mycopy = $myarray

This?

BUT you can't do that with 2d array (the 2nd array), if you read my example above. (and now a new one below)

Dim $2darr[2][2]=[["this is a", "two dimension array]", ["this is the second array", "in a two dimension array"]]

;you can copy the 2d array, but not the second array, to get the array ["this is a", "two dimension array"] from that you have to do
Dim $myarray=[$2darr[0][0], $2darr[0][1]]; 

;however you can't retrieve it this way
Dim $arr = $2darr[0]; logical thinking would assume it would just pass the array as that is what is located in that spot.

A 2D array is not an array of other arrays for you to reference. Maybe some other language you have worked with (PHP?) operates that way. AutoIt arrays simply don't work that way. Period. If you must have that method, use a different language.

But it doesn't look like you spent enough time learning how AutoIt arrays DO work. For example, you can nest arrays as elements in another array:

#include <Array.au3>

Global $avOne[3][3] = [['00', '01', '02'], ['10', '11', '12'], ['20', '21', '22']]
Global $avTwo[3] = ["One", "Two", "Three"]
Global $avThree[2] = [$avOne, $avTwo]
Global $avTemp

For $n = 0 To UBound($avThree) - 1
    $avTemp = $avThree[$n]
    _ArrayDisplay($avTemp, $n)
Next

The question is what do you need to do? What are you trying to accomplish?

Dim $2darr[2][2]=[["this is a", "two dimension array]", ["this is the second array", "in a two dimension array"]]

For $i = 1 to 2

for $r = 1 to 2

$2darr2[$i][$r] = $2darr[$i][$r]

next

Maybe?

I actually completed what i was working on. It just would have been nice to be able to do _arraydisplay with the nested arrays i have. also would have been nice to be able to reference the whole array easily from the one array.

It is a little program to help me put shortcuts back onto users desktops (they like to delete and move them around) without having to worry about where the shortcuts are, what they point to, if they are installed, and even if they need an icon and where the icon needs to be copied to.
