The very first time I encountered arrays, I have to admit I was confused.
And who wouldn't be in a subject that includes buzzwords such as elements, multi-dimensions, population, dynamics, fixed-sizes and explicit boundaries? Oh boy.
But arrays really aren't all that horrid. They're just a hyped-up a way of temporarily storing a load of information sort of a regular variable that holds lots of different bits of data.
If you're unsure what a variable is, check out my Beginning Visual Basic tutorial here.
If you care to join me, your host Karl Moore, in this article, we'll be:
- Figuring out what arrays are all about
- Discovering how to use them within your apps
- Checking out fixed-size and dynamic arrays
- Covering a few neat tips and tricks
- Getting all multi-dimensional
And all that without an ounce of geeky recondite language. Well, maybe just a little oh, come on, how would we nerds live without it? J
