Save all dictionary data to a file.
Dictionary.Save (FileName as String, [SaveEmpty as Boolean = False], [Pattern as String = Empty])
|FileName||String||Name of the file to store dictionary values|
|SaveEmpty||Boolean||yes||False||Save also empty and unknown values|
|Pattern||String||yes||Empty||A Regular Expression string search pattern for selecting keys to save to a file.|
This method saves only string and numeric values of the dictionary members. Other values (arrays, objects ..) are stored only as a string, if it is possible to convert them to a string. Next table shows all variant types which can be stored to the file.
|OLE type||VBA type|
Set o = CreateObject("multi.Dictionary") 'Add some data to the dictionary o.Add "vbNullString", vbNullString o.Add "dbl", CDbl(10) o.Add "sng", CSng(15) o.Add "array", Array(1) o.Add "currency", CCur(11) o.Add "byte", CByte(12) o.Add "int", CInt(13) o.Add "lng", CLng(14) o.Add "string", "Some text" o.Add "bool", True o.Add "empty", empty o.Add "null", null 'Save the dictionary to a file o.Save "F:\aa.dic", False 'remove all data from the dictionary o.RemoveAll 'Load the data to the dictionary.from the file o.Load "F:\aa.dic"
Free threaded dictionary object. Lets you work with unique/non-unique keys, any VARIANT values and connect to other dictionary in the same process.
Dictionary is a COM class specially designed as a free-threaded dictionary in Application scope of ASP/ASP.Net pages. It also works with script other engines in VB Script and JScript (ASP,ASP.Net, WSH, CHM, HTA), VB Net, Visual basic (VBA - VB 5, VB 6, Word, Excel, Access, …), C#, J#, C++, ASP, ASP.Net, Delphi and with T-SQL OLE functions - see Use ByteArray object article. You can also use the object in other programming environments with COM support, such is PowerBuilder.
Source code for Dictionary is available within distribution license, please see License page for Multi Dictionary or License page for ASP file upload and ScriptUtilities.
Free-threaded (multithreaded) dictionary object.
