trouble with adding data to array's

3 posts in this topic

:) Hi It's a simple problem if you know the answer, all I want to do is find out how much free space is available on each drive and store this in a array the the drive letter so I can use it later on in the scripe, my attempts have failed, any help would be much welcome.

Here is my attempt

#include <Array.au3>

$var = DriveGetDrive( "fixed" )

If NOT @error Then

MsgBox(4096,"", "Found " & $var[0] & " drives")

$test = 1

;tell the array how many enter to expect

Dim $avArray$var[0]

For $i = 1 to $var[0]

if $var[$i] = "a:" then

$i = $i + 1

endif

$drive = $var[$i]

; rounds the free space up to a better looking number and assigns it to the variable $tt

$tt = round(DriveSpaceFree($drive))

;just shows a meesage box eith the drive letter and free space on it

msgbox(4096,"",$drive &" size " & $tt &" MB")

$test1 = $drive &" size " & $tt &" MB"

_ArrayAdd( $avArray[$test], & $test1)

;$avarray = $drive &" size " & $tt &" MB"

$test = $test + 1

_ArrayDisplay( $avArray, "Whole array" )

Else

Next

endif

...

First off: code /code tags. :)

Second, there's probably an error in this line: Dim $avArray$var[0]

try changing the second $ to an _ or something.

In case you did not resolve this problem, here's you script in a working state. I commented what is not needed and what was incorrect with ";xxx" for your reference. Could I recommend the use of the SciTE editor from http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/downloads.php. It would have pointed out the problem with the Next and Else statements being out of order.

#include <array.au3>

$var = DriveGetDrive( "fixed")
If Not @error Then
   MsgBox(4096, "", "Found " & $var[0] & " drives")
  ;xxx   $test = 1
   
  ;xxx  ;tell the array how many enter to expect
  ;xxx   Dim $avArray$var[0]
  ; Since _ArrayAdd is being used, just dimension $avArray with 1 element
  ; because _ArrayAdd will expand the array each time it is called.
   Global $avArray[1]
   
   For $i = 1 To $var[0]
      If $var[$i] = "a:" Then
         $i = $i + 1
      EndIf
      
      $drive = $var[$i]
      
     ; rounds the free space up, for this drive, to a better looking number and assigns it to the variable $tt
      $tt = Round(DriveSpaceFree($drive))
      
     ;just shows a meesage box with the drive letter and free space on it
      MsgBox(4096, "", $drive & " size " & $tt & " MB")
      
      $test1 = $drive & " size " & $tt & " MB"
     ;xxx     _ArrayAdd($avArray[$test], $test1)
     ; include this drive in the array
      _ArrayAdd($avArray, $test1)
      
     ;xxx    ;$avarray = $drive &" size " & $tt &" MB"
     ;xxx     $test = $test + 1
      _ArrayDisplay($avArray, "Whole array")
     ;xxx   Else
     ;xxx   Next
   Next
  ;xxx Else;;??? will anything for ELSE be needed?  If not, it is not needed.
EndIf
