Array length at runtime

Array length at runtime

Array length at runtime

How can I set the length of Array in VB6 during runtime?
If there are any Gimicks while using array that a beginer should know, please do tell me that too

RE: Array length at runtime

You can use the ReDim and ReDim Preserve commands to modify the length of an array. There are samples in the VB Help file on this.

While I welcome e-mail messages, please post all thread activity in these forums for the benefit of all members.

RE: Array length at runtime

i have array say Member(10)
and i would like to store the Length, E and I of every member seperately...like Member(1).Length , is it somehow possible in VB.
Thanks for the ReDim Tip.

RE: Array length at runtime

Something like this?

Option Explicit

Public Type MY_TYPE
  ILength As Double
  ELength As Double
End Type

Public Sub Test()
  Dim Members() As MY_TYPE
  Dim intCnt As Integer
  Dim PI As Double
  PI = Atn(1) * 4
  For intCnt = 0 To 10
    ReDim Preserve Members(intCnt)
    Members(intCnt).ILength = PI * 7 - intCnt
    Members(intCnt).ELength = PI * 4 + intCnt
  Next intCnt
  For intCnt = 0 To 10
    Debug.Print Members(intCnt).ELength
    Debug.Print Members(intCnt).ILength
  Next intCnt
End Sub

RE: Array length at runtime

thankU Rj ,Uve soled my prob. :)

RE: Array length at runtime

Dim Array(0,1) 'global
I = 5.36    '2x4 #2 Doug-Fir Wood

Private Sub AddNewSection (I as Single, E as Single)
Static nSections
nSections = nSections + 1
ReDim Preserve Array (nSections, 1)
Array( nSections, 0)= I
Array( nSections, 1) = E

Does anyone know how to get the length of an array at runtime in VB script?

RE: Array length at runtime

Use the Ubound function
ArrayLength  = Ubound(ArrayName)
