Array

Languages Focus

A data structure in which individual values (called elements or items) may be located by reference to one or more integer index variables, the number of such indices being the number of dimensions in the array.

Arrays can start with an index value of 0 or 1, sometimes referred to as 0 based or 1 based.

Corel Paradox:   Array[] type

Arrays in ObjectPAL use a 1-based subscript (also known as an index). Use [] with a subscript to refer to an element (i.e. MyArray[1], MyArray[2]).

The number of elements for a given array in ObjectPAL are either fixed or resizeable. Specify the size when you declare it for fixed. Use size() to get the number of elements, size() returns 0 if the array has no elements. Use setSize(), grow(), addLast(), etc. to add elements to an array.

Syntax Example:

var
  MyArray Array[4] String ;Fixed size array.
  i LongInt
endVar

MyArray[1] = "Mike"
MyArray[2] = "Lisa"
MyArray[3] = "Felicia"
MyArray[4] = "Nathan"

if MyArray.size() > 0 then
  for i from 1 to MyArray.size()
    msgInfo("", MyArray[i])
  endFor
endIf





Cross Reference Examples:

Access VBA:   x = Array()

Arrays in Access VBA use a 0-based indice. Use UBound to get the number of elements. UBound returns -1 if the array has no elements, 0 if it has 1, 1 if it has 2, etc.

Syntax Example:  
Dim MyArray As Variant
Dim i As Integer
 
MyArray = Array("Mike", "Lisa", "Felicia", "Nathan")
 
If UBound(MyArray) > -1 Then
  For i = 0 To UBound(MyArray)
    MsgBox (MyArray(i))
  Next
End If
ASP Classic:   x = Array()

Arrays in ASP Classic use a 0-based indice.

Use UBound to get the number of elements. UBound returns -1 if the array has no elements, 0 if it has 1, 1 if it has 2, etc.

Syntax Example:  
Dim MyArray, i
 
MyArray = Array("Mike", "Lisa", "Felicia", "Nathan")
 
If UBound(MyArray) > -1 Then
  For i = 0 to UBound(MyArray)
    Response.Write MyArray(i)
  Next
End If
Delphi:   x=Array[0..3] of string;

Delphi supports both static and dynamic arrays as well as single and multi dimensional arrays.

Syntax Example:
var
  MyArray: array[0..3] of string;
  i: Integer;
begin
  MyArray[0] := 'Mike';
  MyArray[1] := 'Lisa';
  MyArray[2] := 'Felicia';
  MyArray[3] := 'Nathan';
  
  for i := 0 to High(MyArray) do
    ShowMessage(MyArray[i]);
end;
VB Classic:   x = Array()

Arrays in VB Classic use a 0-based indice. Use UBound to get the number of elements. UBound returns -1 if the array has no elements, 0 if it has 1, 1 if it has 2, etc.

Syntax Example:  
Dim MyArray As Variant
Dim i As Integer
 
MyArray = Array("Mike", "Lisa", "Felicia", "Nathan")
 
If UBound(MyArray) > -1 Then
  For i = 0 To UBound(MyArray)
    MsgBox (MyArray(i))
  Next
End If
