Array iterator that have more arrays that also need iteratio

Hello …

In my new introduction to RoR and Ruby, I’m stopped again …

I know it must be easy, but I can’t figure it out, maybe I’m stucked …

I have one array, and each element of this array, has another array.

I have to loop over two arrays, and extracting all the values, without
knowing their attributes …

I tried with array.each, array.each_index, …

here is may array dumped:

    • !ruby/object:InvoicesCalcul
      attributes:
      1600_base: “82567.36”
      1600_value: “95778.21”
      1600_tax: “13210.85”
    • !ruby/object:InvoicesCalcul
      attributes:
      700_tax: “17.91”
      700_base: “255.81”
      700_value: “273.72”
    • !ruby/object:InvoicesCalcul
      attributes:
      0_base: “707.59”
      0_tax: “0.0”
      0_value: “707.59”

I need:

82567.36 95778.21 13210.85
17.91 255.81 273.72
707.59 0.0 707.59

and here is the last I tried …
the dumped array is: @arr
the @arr_tax is another array, but this works

what I’m getting is the object or something strange, no errors.

<[email protected]_index{|x| %>

(x<%= x%>) <%= @arr_tax[x]%>

<%@arr[x].each{|y| %>

(y<%= y%>) <%= y[x]%> <% }%> <% }%>

thanks!

Looks like you have a collection of InvoicesCalcul, each of them with
an accessor “attributes”, which is a hash:

values = invoice_calculs.map do |ic|
ic.attributes
end.map do |a|
a.values
end.flatten

Those could be AR objetcs, in Rails you can write that this way:

values = invoice_calculs.map(&:attributes).map(&:values).flatten

thanks …

maybe they are AR, because I get those values from a loop, where I issue
some sql:
@temp_result = InvoicesCalcul.find_by_sql(‘SELECT sum(base) AS
"’+ @name_base + ‘" ,sum(import) AS "’ + @name_tax + ‘" ,sum(total_net)
AS "’ + @name_total + ‘" FROM invoices_calculs c, invoices i WHERE
c.tipus=’+KIND_TAX_IVA.to_s+’ AND c.invoice_id=i.id AND c.xcent=’+
@value +’ AND i.any=’[email protected]_year)

and I add those results into an array.

what I see, with your suggestion, I have the same issue as before, I
want to retrieve the values without knowing the attribute, only by the
index:

now I have to a[‘1600_base’] to get the value, I just want the value for
each index, not the attribute.
i’m going to deep into the rail’s book …

thanks,

ic.attributes

after reading some docs, it would be possible this:

a.each_value {|value| puts value }

but I’m getting this:
1600_base82567.36000000011600_value95778.211600_tax13210.85

and i want only the values, and it seems that puts in just one time all
the key+values, not in a loop.

debug(a) gives me: —
1600_base: “82567.3600000001”
1600_value: “95778.21”
1600_tax: “13210.85”

and in pseudo code, I want this:

a.value for each value

thanks again,

@temp_result is already an array of ARs.

yes, I mean I add this array into another array:

@arr.push(@temp_result)

what I see, with your suggestion, I have the same issue as before, I
want to retrieve the values without knowing the attribute, only by the
index:

No, no. Please reread the code, it extracts the values without
touching the keys. I think that’s what you want.

yes, but the values where written at once:

82567.3695778.2113210.85

and I want separated, for adding them into a cell of a table, with

value

thanks,

Then you are done removing the call to flatten:

invoice_calculs.map(&:attributes).map(&:values)

I’m sorry but I don’t understand …

I’m using your first suggestion:

values = invoice_calculs.map do |ic|
ic.attributes
end.map do |a|
a.values
end.flatten

with or without the .flatten all the values are written at the same time

your new suggestion : invoice_calculs.map(&:attributes).map(&:values)

also writtes the three values at one time, I need each value separated:

element one:
82567.3695778.2113210.85

and I need:
82567.36
95778.21
13210.85

I hope it’s more clear what I’m trying to do now …

regards, and thanks!

The version with flatten gives you all the values in a row in a single
array. From the YAML dump that would be

[“82567.36”, 95778.21", “13210.85”, “17.91”, “255.81”, “273.72”, …]

The version without flatten gives an array of arrays. Each array
element contains the values corresponding to a single InvoicesCalcul:

[[“82567.36”, 95778.21", “13210.85”], [“17.91”, “255.81”,
“273.72”], …]

Please use that array notation to indicate how would the desired
result look like if it is none of those.

– fxn

I must be missing something, because if I make a debug(a):

values = @arr[0].map do |ic|
ic.attributes
end.map do |a|

a.values

debug(a)

end.flatten

1600_base: “82567.3600000001”
1600_value: “95778.21”
1600_tax: “13210.85”

I’m still getting attributes and values, not a simple array …

I’m going to re-check all the code and see where the problem is …

thanks!

But why do you put a trace at that point? Of course a is a hash there,
but you are not aggregating the hash, you’re collecting the
collection of values of those hashes via a.values. You need to work
with tha variable “values” which is assigned the result of the
map.chain. Please inspect the array stored in the variable “values”
after that block of code has run.

Now I see where was my error … I was using the variable a instead of
variable values.

Using the values gives me an array, but now I see that the order is not
the expected.

It’s the same as it was in the hash, so the problem is at the begining,
when I issue the sql:

      @temp_result = InvoicesCalcul.find_by_sql('SELECT sum(base) AS 

“’+ @name_base + '” ,sum(import) AS “’ + @name_tax + '” ,sum(total_net)
AS “’ + @name_total + '” FROM invoices_calculs c, invoices i WHERE
c.tipus=’+KIND_TAX_IVA.to_s+’ AND c.invoice_id=i.id AND c.xcent=’+
@value +’ AND i.any=’[email protected]_year)

I suppose, that @temp_result should be:

  • !ruby/object:InvoicesCalcul
    attributes:
    base: “707.59”
    tax: “0.0”
    total: “707.59”

but it’s:

  • !ruby/object:InvoicesCalcul
    attributes:
    tax: “0.0”
    total: “707.59”
    base: “707.59”

so, I have to change my code, but at least, I learned how to extract the
values from a hash and put in an array.

Thanks, now is working, but I did some changes in other parts.

raimon

Hashes are unordered in ruby 1.8. The best way to guarantee you always
get the order you expect is to sort the keys. Using Xavier’s code from
above with “values” result sorted on hash key…

values = @arr[0].map do |ic|
ic.attributes
end.map do |a|
a.keys.sort.map do |k| # this part
a[k]
end
end.flatten

thanks for the explanation, I see I have to learn more Ruby …
