Finding Size of Array

Recommended Posts


I know its back to basics, but i am reading out of a .ini, using $file=IniReadSection(...), which gives me an array, where file[0][0] gives me the number of indexes, so because in my .ini i have:









$file[0][0] returns a value of 64.

I have been using a 2D array UDF (i think PSaltyDS wrote it), and so i have added 4 more rows to the array, so it now has 68 indexes, but $file[0][0] of course still remains 64 as that is made by the function IniReadSection(...) .

Is there anyway i can either read out that there are 68 indexes, im guessing i could do a loop and when it becomes in error, but is there a nicer way??

Look at UBound in the help file.

haha thats the one!! Thank you!

It is a routine operation to update the first element with new size of the array:
$file[0][0] = Ubound($file) - 1

My point is, don't forget the "- 1" part.
