An array variable can be created either locally with 'Dim', or as a public or private variable.
The maximum size of the array is determined by the subscript value in brackets:
Example: Dim arrCoffee(2) arrCoffee(0) = "Expresso" arrCoffee(1) = "Latte" arrCoffee(2) = "Cappuchino" wscript.echo arrCoffee(2)The lower bound of an array is always zero, so in the above example the subscript is 2 yet the array holds 3 items.
A 2 dimensional array can be thought of as like a spreadsheet with X rows and Y columns, each holding one value.
The definition has 2 subscripts for X and Y:
DIM varname(SubscriptX, SubscriptY)Example: Dim arrCoffee(2,1) arrCoffee(0,0) = "Expresso" arrCoffee(0,1) = "No" arrCoffee(1,0) = "Latte" arrCoffee(1,1) = "Yes" arrCoffee(2,0) = "Cappuchino" arrCoffee(2,1) = "Yes" wscript.echo "Coffee: " + arrCoffee(2,0) + " Milk: " + arrCoffee(2,1)
A multi dimensional array can be constructed just like a 2 dimensional one, adding extra subscripts for each extra dimension up to a maximum of 600.
DIM varname(SubscriptX, SubscriptY, SubscriptZ...)
“Working in an office with an array of electronic devices is like trying to get something done at home with half a dozen small children around.
The calls for attention are constant” ~ Marilyn vos Savant
