Public Arrays

Public Arrays

In VB 6, how can I save an array to be used by other methods?  I can't save as public and I don't want to use an UI control to save it.  TYVM

RE: Public Arrays

You can pass the array into the other method/function/subroutine as a parameter.

RE: Public Arrays

Dim Fnu As Long            'File Number
Open FileName4Array For Binary As Fnu
 Put #Fnu, 1, ArrayName()  '1 is starting location
                           'for saving see "PUT" help
Close Fnu

' to read
  Open FileName$ For Binary As Fnu
   Get #Fnu, 1, AnyArrayName()
  Close #Fnu
'Now "1" again is the staring point for read, you may read a part or all.
The read array must be resized to hold all data otherwise the command will read to the size of variable defined in Get Function, this allows you to add a fixed length header to tel the reader software what he is reading and how many bytes... all info you may want to save with your array
Best regards
