Re: [Vala] Dynamic arrays in Vala - example for newbie

I bet it is a bug.

Ok, thanks for the advise then.

Now I have different problem. If I do the code below inside a
function, it works:

string[] a;
a= {};
a += "sometext";

But if I do initialization outside the scope to make array global:

string[] a;

And then inside the function:
a= {};
a += "sometext";
I get following error:
error: ‘a_size’ undeclared (first use in this function)

How do I declare global array properly?

Use string[] instead of GLib.Array
The rule of thumb is to avoid GLib.Array, if possible.

vala array implements a resize method.

I'm writing an application and I've come to the point where I need to
use dynamic arrays.
I tried Garray:

GLib.Array<string> test_calls; // it's declared from the start to be global

test_calls = new GLib.Array<string>(false,  false, (uint)sizeof(string));
test_calls.append_val("some string");
debug("%s", test_calls.index(0));

It gives me segmentation fault.
How do I do this properly?

I've been searching the whole day for example in Vala and couldn't find one :(
Thanks. Leonti
