Multi Dimensional Array.

Please help me,

I need to create an array or some sort of in-memory storage to:

Store a:    Number of channels(1-20)
           
Each channel can have multiple lines of data.
This data must be split into its relative fields.

Public gSMDRArr As String()()()         '(Ch#)(Line)(Field)

This seems a bit redundant, for example if channel(Ch#) 17 has 3 (Line)s of data each (Line) has (Field)s: "ID,Date,Time,Duration"

Line 1 for CH# 17
gSMDRArr(17)(0)(0) = "453"                       'ID
gSMDRArr(17)(0)(1) = "11/17/06"               'Date
gSMDRArr(17)(0)(2) = "02:38PM"                'Time
gSMDRArr(17)(0)(3) = "00:02:14"               'Duration
Line 2 for CH# 17
gSMDRArr(17)(1)(0) = "453"                       'ID
gSMDRArr(17)(1)(1) = "11/17/06"               'Date
gSMDRArr(17)(1)(2) = "02:40PM"                'Time
gSMDRArr(17)(1)(3) = "00:01:04"               'Duration
Line 3 for CH# 17
gSMDRArr(17)(2)(0) = "453"                       'ID
gSMDRArr(17)(2)(1) = "11/17/06"               'Date
gSMDRArr(17)(2)(2) = "02:42PM"                'Time
gSMDRArr(17)(2)(3) = "00:02:14"               'Duration

Then for channel 4 has 2 lines  then once the last line comes with its termination code i need to clear the channel, all the lines and fields.


I hope i was clear,
Thanks

Hi ryankahan,

Why not use a  DataSet ?

As you tell, "This seems a bit redundant".

Hope this  helps.

I would create a Class to hold the fields, and then use an ArrayList to hold multiple instances of that class...one for each line.

Yeah, Mikey, but 2005 has generics, which is much better than an ArrayList ;)

Simplified version:

Public Class Entry

   Public ID As Integer
   Public Date_Time As Date
   Public Duration As TimeSpan

End Class

Public Class Lines

    Public Entries As New List Of(Entry)

End Class

Private m_channels As New List(Of Lines)
