VB Classic Data Structures


Languages Focus

A data structure in which individual values (called elements or items) may be located by reference to one or more integer index variables, the number of such indices being the number of dimensions in the array.

Arrays can start with an index value of 0 or 1, sometimes referred to as 0 based or 1 based.

VB Classic:   x = Array()

Arrays in VB Classic use a 0-based indice. Use UBound to get the number of elements. UBound returns -1 if the array has no elements, 0 if it has 1, 1 if it has 2, etc.

Syntax Example:
Dim MyArray As Variant
Dim i As Integer
MyArray = Array("Mike", "Lisa", "Felicia", "Nathan")
If UBound(MyArray) > -1 Then
  For i = 0 To UBound(MyArray)
    MsgBox (MyArray(i))
End If
