Using UBound on empty array

I am doing something similar to the following:

Dim myArray()
...
'Some code that may ReDim myArray to some new size
...
If UBound(myArray) > 0 Then
...


If I make it to the line that checks UBound and nothing has yet been added to the array, I get the following error:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a0009'

Subscript out of range: 'UBound'

How can I find out the size of my array when there is a possibility that the array may have no values?

Hi

you could try this as your first line

Dim myArray(0)

This should stop the error as the array has been dimensionalised (spelling :) )

Before you do ubound(myArray), do this:

if isArray(myArray) then
  if ubound(myArray)>0 then
     ''do whatever you want
  end if
else
  '' myArray isn't an array!
end if

Scott, if I start the array at 0, when I try to ReDim it, I get this error:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000a'

This array is fixed or temporarily locked
