Array question

Post by spysmily1 » Thu May 04, 2006 12:33 am

Are all elements of an array stored in consecutive memory like in C?

Also if they are given storage ahead of time and you declare an array without a type how does it know how much space to give without knowing the type?

I think you have have to declare type, including string length

Yes, they are

Arrays in QB always have a type, if you omit it the default type is used (SINGLE).
