Default VBScript : alternative way of resizing an Array ?


Would someone please be able to tell me if there is a simple way of deleting an item in an array and resizing it [keeping the old values] ?

For instance, I have an array defined as :

Dim myArray(3)

myArray(0) = "A"
myArray(1) = "B"
myArray(2) = "C"
myArray(3) = "D"

I would like to remove myArray(1), and resize the whole thing back to myArray(2) [keeping the old content].

myArray(0) = "A"
myArray(1) = "C"
myArray(2) = "D"

Do I have to make a function for that or is there some methods I missed regarding the use of arrays ? Thanks for your advice.

You can use the ReDim Preserve option, although you may have to use SHIfT and UNSHIFT as well.

Thanks for your help. Good to know what the Dictionary object does, will surely get this part investigated. The second option about the ReDim PRESERVE I know about, but using built-in array functionality seems a bit limited.
