inArray <T>Array Input array
inIndex Integer 0 - Index within the array

  • Make sure that inIndex will always be in range. If this cannot be guaranteed, use GetArrayElement_OrNil instead.
  • To get the last element of a non-empty array use inIndex = 0 and inInverse = True.


inArray = {1,4,3,2,5}
inIndex = 3
inInverse = False
outValue = 2

inArray = {1,4,3,2,5}
inIndex = 3
inInverse = True
outValue = 4
