Public Function GetSigmaSum(sigmaList as arraylist, sigmaID as integer) as double

Dim sigmaSum as double



return sigmaSum

End Function

Hi Experts,

Please look at the above snippet. I would like to pass an array of sigmavalues to a function and it pass back the sum of all values in a single sigma group. How can I do this. Useage would be.

GetSigmaSum(sigmalist, 2)

This would pass back the sum of all sigmaAway2 values.

Is the number of sigmaaway variables in class limited? Or is it extendable? How about using an array within the class as well? Then you can try something like below

Public Function GetSigma(sigmaList as arraylist, sigmaID as integer) as double
Dim Sum as Double
For Each sl in SigmaList
   Sum += sl.Values(sigmaID - 1) 'Values is the array in the class
Next
Return Sum
End Function

If not using array then something like below

Public Function GetSigma(sigmaList as arraylist, sigmaID as integer) as double
Dim Sum as Double
For Each sl in SigmaList
 If sigmaID = 1 Then  
    Sum += sl.SigmaAway1
 ElseIf SigmaID = 2 then
    Sum += sl.SigmaAway2
 ...
 End If
Next
Return Sum
End Function

You can do this via Reflection or the legacy CallByName()  function.

Here's a quick example without any error checking:
Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim al As New ArrayList

        Dim sv As New SigmaValues
        sv.sigmaAway2 = 1
        al.Add(sv)

        sv = New SigmaValues
        sv.sigmaAway2 = 1
        al.Add(sv)

        sv = New SigmaValues
        sv.sigmaAway2 = 1
        al.Add(sv)

        Dim sum As Double = GetSigmaSum(al, 2)
        MessageBox.Show(sum)
    End Sub

    Public Function GetSigmaSum(ByVal sigmaList As ArrayList, ByVal sigmaID As Integer) As Double
        Dim sigmaSum As Double
        For Each sl As SigmaValues In sigmaList
            sigmaSum = sigmaSum + CallByName(sl, "sigmaAway" & sigmaID, CallType.Get)
        Next
        Return sigmaSum
    End Function

End Class

Public Class SigmaValues
    Public sigmaAway1 As Double
    Public sigmaAway2 As Double
    Public sigmaAway3 As Double
    Public sigmaAway4 As Double
    Public sigmaAway5 As Double
    Public sigmaAway6 As Double
    Public sigmaAway7 As Double
    Public sigmaAway8 As Double
End Class
