Greetings, obantec.

If I understand correctly you want to increase the size of the array by one element.  If that's right, then use the Redim Preserve statement.  Something like

    intArrLen = UBound(MyPicture)                   'Get the number of elements in the array now
    Redim Preserve MyPicture(intArrLen + 1)     'Increase the array by one element

Instead of going to this effort you might want to consider using a Collection object.  They behave somewhat like arrays, but are much more flexible.

Cheers!

Hi

I just want to be able to add a string to an array. the default size of the array needs to be 100

at start array has no data
then add 1 string to array so later i can access the array using an index.

example

Text4.Text = nameofarray(index) ' get string using an index number

i have not used Collection object but am will to learn

Hi,

Do u mean this?

   Dim TheArray(100) As String
   
   TheArray(1) = "C:\Documents and Settings\beheerder\Mijn documenten\Mijn afbeeldingen\DSCN1450.JPG"
   TheArray(2) = "C:\Documents and Settings\beheerder\Mijn documenten\Mijn afbeeldingen\DSCN1451.JPG"
   TheArray(3) = "C:\Documents and Settings\beheerder\Mijn documenten\Mijn afbeeldingen\DSCN1456.JPG"
   TheArray(4) = "C:\Documents and Settings\beheerder\Mijn documenten\Mijn afbeeldingen\DSCN1457.JPG"
   
   Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture(TheArray(1))

Regards,
Hans

That's it!!!

i did not have the 100 so my array size was 0

All working as expected.

Hi Mark,

BlueDevilFan showed the usual way to change the dimensioning on an array; the one thig I have to add is that you
have to decalre such a variable without dimensions:

Dim MyPitcure() AS String

and not

Dim MyPitcure(99) AS String

Another alternative would be to use a Collection, which dynamically resizes as you add or remove elements,
or a Dictionary object.

Regards,

Patrick
