Iterating items in an array

Based on this functionality below I have 2 questions:

!--- create an array of days and buckets starting with the first_date going
until the last_date--->

<cfset col = "293">
<cfset myArrayOfDays = ArrayNew(1)>
<cfset myArrayOfDays[#first_date#] = structNew()>
<cfset myArrayOfDays[#first_date#].bucket = #col#>
<cfset col=#col#+30>
<cfloop index="counter" from="2" to="999" step="1">
        <cfset temp_date = #DateAdd("d",counter-1,#first_date#)#>
        <cfset temp_date_formatted =
#DateFormat("#temp_date#","mm/dd/yyyy")#>
        <cfset myArrayOfDays[#temp_date_formatted #] = structNew()>
        <cfset myArrayOfDays[#temp_date_formatted #].bucket = #col#>
        <cfset col=#col#+30>
        <!---<cfif temp_date eq last_date>--->
        <!--- -1 less than, 0 equal, 1 greater than --->
        <cfif DateCompare(#last_date#, #temp_date#, "d") eq 0 >
                <cfbreak>
        </cfif>
</cfloop>

<!--- create an array adding the buckets, matching on Days--->
<cfset RectDays = arrayNew(1)>
<cfoutput query="GetTask" startrow="#StartRow#" maxrows="#MaxRows#">
        <cfset RectDays[#GetTask.CurrentRow#] = structNew()>
        <cfset RectDays[#GetTask.CurrentRow#].TaskID = #GetTask.TASK_ID#>
        <cfset RectDays[#GetTask.CurrentRow#].TaskDUR = #GetTask.TASK_DUR#>
        <cfset RectDays[#GetTask.CurrentRow#].PerComp = #TASK_PER_COMP#>


        <!---  for each task using the date, grab the bucket--->
        <cfset ck = #DateFormat("#GetTask.TASK_BASE_START#","mm/dd/yyyy")#>

        <!---  find the starting day for the baseline start --->
        <cfset found = false>

1) is there another way that I can look right into the index to find this
instead of looping like this?

        <cfloop from="1" to="#myArrayOfDays_cnt#" index="i">
                <cfset myvar = "#myArrayOfDays[i]#">
          <!---  should be in the format: #DateFormat("#temp_date#","mm/dd/yyyy")# --->

         <cfif #ck# eq #myvar#>
       <cfset RectDays[#GetTask.CurrentRow#].BasePosition = #myArrayOfDays[i].bucket#>
                        <cfset found = true>
                        <cfbreak>
                </cfif>
        </cfloop>

        <cfif found eq false>
                <cfset RectDays[#GetTask.CurrentRow#].BasePosition = "999">
        </cfif>
</cfoutput>

2) If I wanted to iterate through the myArrayOfDays array what is the
correct way to do this?

<cfoutput>
        <cfloop from="1" to="#ArrayLen(myArrayOfDays)#" index="i">
                #myArrayOfDays[i].date#  #myArrayOfDays[i].bucket#<br>
        </cfloop>
</cfoutput>

You can see this is not correct because the index is in days like 12/30/2003
and not 1,2,3,4,5 etc.

perhaps you shouldnt use a date as your array index and instead use any particular date as a number of days away from a set date....

i.e.
<cfset someDate='1/1/1900'>
<cfset numDaysSomeDatetoNow = DateDiff('d',now(),someDate)>

use the that as the array index...

<cfset myArrayOfDays[#numDaystoNow#] = structNew()>...
...

The "#myArrayOfDays# is going to be:

index  - bucket
12/30/2002 - 200
12/31/2002 - 225
1/1/2003 - 250
.
.
.
11/20/2003 - (bucket)

until #last_date# is reached

firstdate varies, but in the example I provided above:
#first_date# = "12/30/2002"
#last_date# = "1/1/2003"

The array then encompasses every day from 12/30/2002 to 1/1/2003 with a corresponding element I call a bucket.

I am answering question 1) myself. Here is the answer:

I should use:

<cfset ck = #DateFormat("#GetTask.TASK_BASE_START#","mm/dd/yyyy")#>
<cfif NOT StructISEmpty(myArrayOfDays['#ck#'])>
  <cfset RectDays[#GetTask.CurrentRow#].BasePosition = #myArrayOfDays['#ck#'].bucket#>
  <cfelse>
    <cfset RectDays[#GetTask.CurrentRow#].BasePosition = "0">            
</cfif>

Question 2) is still open however

how about?

<cfoutput>
        <cfloop from="1" to="#ArrayLen(myArrayOfDays)#" index="i">
                <cfset thisDateIndex = DateAdd('d',i-1,first_date)>
                #myArrayOfDays[thisDateIndex].date#  #myArrayOfDays[thisDateIndex].bucket#<br>
        </cfloop>
</cfoutput>

I still have this question open the guts of which were really answered in another post on looping so here is a related array question.

myarrayx looks like:
index id     comp
1       3      100
2       6      50
3       9      25

myarrayy looks like:
index id     relid
1       3     9
2       3     10  
3       14   11

so you can see that in myarrayx the id is unique, but in myarrayy id it is one-to-many.

I don't want to have to loop through every item in myarrayy where the id matchs in myarrayx.

I currently have this logic:

<cfloop from="1" to="#ArrayLen(myarrayx)#" index="i">
      <cfset test = #myarrayx[i].id#>
      <cfloop from="1" to="#ArrayLen(myarrayy)#" index="j">
            <cfif #myarray[j]id# eq #test#>                        
                       <td>#myArrayOfRels[j].relid#</td>
            </cfif>
      </cfloop>                  
</cfloop>

I first created a 2 dim structure for myarrayy using the id as the index and a counter as the second dimension but I had trouble because myarrayy[1][1] and myarrayy[2][1] did not exist.

myarrayy[3][1].relid contained 9
myarrayy[3][2].relid contained 10

I wanted to use:

<cfif not structisempty(myarrayy[#i#][1])>
   ..... get the relid .. do some processing
</cfif>

but I kept on getting an error that it was empty ... duh! but when i was equal to 3 I got some data.

Any help is appreciated. I'd like to have an array format where I don't have to loop through each item in the array to get the data.
