Array Question

Array Question

Array Question

I am attempting to put this code:

CODE --> vb

faces2(0) = face1
faceDumbRule2 = workPart.ScRuleFactory.CreateRuleFaceDumb(faces2)

faces3(0) = face3
faceDumbRule3 = workPart.ScRuleFactory.CreateRuleFaceDumb(faces3)

rules4(0) = faceDumbRule2
rules4(1) = faceDumbRule3 

Into an loop using arrays, to allow for different sized arrays, or number of faces to be passed. So far it looks like thise:

CODE --> vb

itm2 = checkFace.Length - 1
      msgbox("array length determined")
      For itm1 = 0 To itm2
         msgbox("itm1" & itm1 )
         faces1(0) = checkFace(itm1)
         msgbox("checking face " & itm1 )
         faceDumbRule1 = workPart.scRuleFactory.CreateRuleFaceDumb(faces1)
         rules4(itm1) = faceDumbRule1 
      Next itm1 

When itm2 is 0 it works fine, but on any other value it fails. I do not want faces1 to increment I want it to over write every time but I get the following error when I attempt to run the program:

System.IndexOutOfRangeException: Index was outside the bounds of the array.

Checkface is a passed array in tests it contains 3 faces.

faces1(0) is defined as "Dim faces1(0) As Face"

This is code that is intended to be run in Unigraphics environment, but I think the problem is in the VB and not the UG specific code.

any help is appreciated.

RE: Array Question

Figured it out, it was the rules4 callout redefined it using itm2 for the size and it worked.
