O.P. Huh?  HELP - Arrays in the registry!
I want to use this with the Interface Writer script, but I have a problem with what it returns.

Note: this function uses a registry code snippet.

Javascript code:
function SaveProject()
{
    Debug.Trace("<-- Start project save. -->");
    try
    {
        Debug.Trace("> Attempting to save project to the registry...");
        if (ExistsRegistry("Sys", "FilePath"))
        {
            if (Interop.Call('user32', 'MessageBoxW', objWnd.Handle, "A file already exists in the registry.  Overwrite?", "Interface Writer | Save Project", 4 | 48) !== 7)
            {
                Debug.Trace("-> Saving system data to the registry...");   
                Debug.Trace("--> Saving file path...");
                WriteRegistry("Sys", "FilePath", FilePath, true);
                Debug.Trace("-> Saving window data to the registry...");
                Debug.Trace("--> Saving window IDs...");
                WriteRegistry("Lst", "Id", WndLstId, true);
                Debug.Trace("--> Saving window titles...");
                WriteRegistry("Lst", "Title", WndLstTitle, true);
                Debug.Trace("--> Saving window widths...");
                WriteRegistry("Lst", "Width", WndLstWidth, true);
                Debug.Trace("--> Saving window heights...");
                WriteRegistry("Lst", "Height", WndLstHeight, true);
                Debug.Trace("--> Saving other window data...");

Let's say, for example, that I have two window IDs, "Wnd1" and "Wnd2".  Instead of the registry returning "Wnd1" in "WndLstId[0]" and "Wnd2" in "WndLstId[1]", I get "Wnd1,Wnd2" in "WndLstId[0]".  How can I get it so it splits items using the comma?

I didn't read your code, but, if this is what you want:

You can use WndLstId[0].split(','); which returns an array of split strings.

O.P. RE: HELP - Arrays in the registry!
So, to be clear, this code...
Javascript code:
var Msg = "Item1,Item2";
Msg.split(,);


...would return the same as this code...
Javascript code:
var Msg = new Array("Item1", "Item2");


Is that correct?

Yeah, but, it's
Msg.split(",");
with the quotes (you should be passing in a string, or a RegExp)

RE: HELP - Arrays in the registry!
Yes, as long as the array elements don't contain your separator character (in this case, a comma), you'll get the same array. Since you're trying to retrieve an array of window IDs, you won't have any trouble with possibly having a comma in an element's value.

Just one note, it should say:
Javascript code:
Msg.split(","); //note the quotes around the comma, you're passing a regular string as first parameter here for String.split()

Almost,
Javascript code:
var Msg = "Item1,Item2";
Msg.split(,);


Should be:

Javascript code:
var Msg = "Item1,Item2";
Msg.split(",");



EDIT: Bit slow=/ I left the browser window open for a while :p

Javascript code:
WndLstId = ReadRegistry("Lst", "Id");
WndLstId.split(",");
WndLstTitle = ReadRegistry("Lst", "Title");
WndLstTitle.split(",");
// ...

Is that the right idea?

Blah, sorry for not making it clear..

You'll need to some variable to save the return value of the split() function, like

JScript code:
var Msg = "Item1,Item2";
var arrayOfItems = Msg.split(",");

Javascript code:
var TmpLstId = ReadRegistry("Lst", "Id");
WndLstId = TmpLstId.split(",");
var TmpLstTitle = ReadRegistry("Lst", "Title");
WndLstTitle = TmpLstTitle.split(",");
// ...

Like that?

RE: HELP - Arrays in the registry!
Provided "Id" and "Title" were saved as a string (and read out as a string), yes...

PS: since this is JScript, you could also do:
JScript code:
var WndLstId = ReadRegistry("Lst", "Id");
WndLstId = WndLstId.split(",");
var WndLstTitle = ReadRegistry("Lst", "Title");
WndLstTitle = WndLstTitle.split(",");
// ...

So you don't realy need the temporary variables, you could just assign a string to your existing WndLstWhatever  variable and then use that same string variable to make it into an array. JScript is fine with that (as it automatically converts and overwrites the types in this case).

This might save you a lot of variable names and code.

Although there are a lot more, and more efficient methods to do what you do though (storing a lot of individual variables in the registry I mean).
