Initializing An Array Easily

Posted on 2006-10-20

Say I have something like this:

Public MyArray(100) As Single

Suppose I want to initialize all of them to 5.55. Is there an easy way?

Also consider the same for two-dimensional array:

Public MyArray(10,10) As Single

Edit: a way INSTEAD of using a For loop (or two For loops)

You simply have to iterate over the entire array and set each way around it.

iteration would help you in this

whilst you can write this:

public myarray() as single = new single() {10,14,12,34} which will create a 4 element array with the values 10,14,12,34, you cannot initialise a fixed sized array like this.  Its just not allowed.

But I suppose if you really want to avoid a loop you could write it as
public myarray() as single = new single() {5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5,5.5} ...don't bother counting them, I have no idea how many there are there :)

Is there some particular reason why you don't want to do a loop?
