Resizing Variant arrays

First, look at my short cut of my code:

var
variant_array : variant;

BEGIN
variant_array := VarArrayCreate([1,1,1,1], varInteger);
...
vararrayredim(variant_array, x);
                      ^^^^^^
You see? I'd like to resize first (or second) one of my
variant array dimensions. How can I do that?

You cannot!
As far as i can remember, you can only resize last dimension (check the help).

If you need to resize another dimension, i may suggest to create a new varArray with new dimensions, then copy the vals to it.
Maybe this kind of approach would be more elegant using pointers, so getting rid of old instances of your varArray, but this dipends on your knowledge of pointers (i've worked with Delphi in the past, so cannot be of more help on this now).
