The $DYNAMIC Metacommand allows the creation of dynamic(changeable) array sizes.

== Syntax == REM $DYNAMIC

  • Metacommands require a REM or apostrophy (') before them.
  • Metacommands should be placed at the program start in the main module.
  • Dynamic arrays can be resized using REDIM. The array's type cannot be changed.
  • All data in the array will be lost when redimensioned in QBasic.
  • In QB64, REDIM _PRESERVE can save previous array data.
  • Dynamic arrays can also be resized by the program user's input if desired.
  • Dynamic arrays MUST be REDIMensioned if ERASE or CLEAR are used to clear the array values.
