Error trying to print array variable in RabbitWeb

0 votes
I want to print out a structure member from an array and RabbitWeb gives me a "ZHMTL ERROR: Unknown variable error. The variables are declared globally and registered via the #web command.
Code:
struct meas1_type { char year; char mon; char mday; char hour; char min; char sec; char rh; char temp; } meas1 [MEAS1_SIZE]; #web meas1; int idx1 = 0; #web idx1;
Here is applicable portion of the RabbitWeb script:
Code:
idx = <?z print($idx1) ?> << OK <table border="1"> <tr><th>Idx</th><th>Time</th><th>Temp</th><th>Jumid</th></tr> <tr><td><?z print($A) ?></td> << OK <td><?z print($meas1[0].hour) ?>: <?z print($meas1[$idx1].min) ?>: << Error <?z print($meas1[$idx1].sec) ?></td> << Error
The "print($idx1)" and the "print($meas1[0].hour" execute correctly. The two "$meas1[$idx1].xxxx" outputs have the errors. I have used "$meas1[$A].xxxx" in the past with a loop with no problems.
Why is RabbitWeb throwing an error for $meas1[$idx1].xxxx"?

I'm pretty sure that's a limitation of RabbitWeb. I think you can only use loop variables to index into arrays, but you'd have to double-check the documentation on that.

You could possibly create another RabbitWeb variable as a pointer to one of the meas1 entries. Update that instead of (or in addition to) updating idx1, and then reference the record that way ($curmeas->hour).

If RabbitWeb doesn't allow the use of pointers, then you'd have to make a copy of "meas1[idx1]" into "curmeas" whenever idx1 changes, and reference the fields as "$curmeas.hour".
