An array is an indexed collection of data for a specific data type. Arrays themselves are not a data type, but any data type can be defined as an array using the Dim statement or as a property.
Dim arrayName() As dataType
Dim arrayName(size [,size2,...sizeN]) As dataType
Dim arrayName(), arrayNameN() As dataType [= Array(value1, value2, ..., valueN)]
All arrays are indexed starting at position 0.
Arrays are often created by specifying the upper bound for the array when you Dim it. Because arrays all start at position 0, an array has one more element than the number you use as the upper bound. For example, this creates an array with 5 elements, which you can then access using the index:
aNames(0) = "Bob"
aNames(1) = "Bill"
aNames(2) = "Ben"
aNames(3) = "Brad"
aNames(4) = "Bart"
Constants can be used when declaring the upper bound of an array:
You can also create empty arrays that do not specify a size. At run-time, your code can add elements to it or you can choose to ReDim it to a specific size. These are the two ways to create an empty array:
If you try to access an element of an array that does not exist, you will get an OutOfBoundsException. Here are some examples that would raise the exception:
aFirstName(1) = "Bill" // aFirstName is still empty
Use the methods Append and Insert to add additional elements to arrays. These methods are the only ways to add elements to empty arrays, but they can also be used to extend the size of any single-dimension array.
A multi-dimensional array has elements in 2 or more dimensions. A table would be an example of a 2-dimensional array because it has columns and rows.
Most of the array methods are not supported for multi-dimensional arrays.
You declare multi-dimensional arrays by specifying the upper bound for each dimension:
Remove All Elements
The fast way to remove all elements from an array is to Redim it as empty like this:
For i As Integer = 1 To 1000
// myArray is now empty
