SetVariantArrayValueMBS(v as Variant, index as Integer, value as Variant)
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Targets
global method System MBS Util Plugin 16.2 Yes Yes Yes All
Function: Sets an object from an array of objects inside a variant.
Example:
// some part of app builds an array
dim a() as pair

// passes it as Variant somewhere else

dim v as Variant = a

// and later you may want to put values in array without knowing object type for array

// this raises TypeMismatchException
'dim o() as Object = v

// so use plugin

SetVariantArrayValueMBS(v, 0, 1:"Hello")
SetVariantArrayValueMBS(v, 1, 2:"World")

MsgBox a(0).Right+" "+a(1).Right
Notes:
This function is to allow setting objects in an array inside a variant without known the class used to declare array.
Also updated to work with object, variant, string, date, integer, double, single, boolean, Int64 arrays. Other array types will raise exception.
Be sure to only put objects of right class in the array! Else you risk crashes.

If index is 1 bigger than ubound, we append an element.
