Ubound of second element in a 2-dimensional array

Posted on 2006-10-27
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
In VB6, is there a way to find the ubound of the second element in a 2-d array?

For instance, if I had an array dimensioned like this:  sName(0 to 50, 0 to 100)
and I wanted to later get Ubound(sName)  how do I get the 100 value?

In your case:

UBound(sName, 2)

The UBound() function has two parameters:  The first one the "name" of the array variable; and the second one is the "dimension" parameter (which is optional) and is a whole number indicating which dimension's upper bound is returned.  And because the second param is optional, if omitted, 1 is assumed.


  UBound(sName) ... will return 50  = which is the same as UBound(sName, 1)

In your case:

  See Patrick's example.
