Multidimensional array is an array which store data in matrix form. You can create from two dimensional to three, four and many more dimensional array according to your need. Below we have mentioned array syntax. Scala provides an ofDim method to create multidimensional array.

Multidimensional Array Syntax

var arrayName = Array.ofDim[ArrayType](NoOfRows,NoOfColumns) or
var arrayName = Array(Array(element?), Array(element?), ?)

Scala Multidimensional Array Example by using ofDim

In This example, we have created array by using ofDim method.

class ArrayExample{

    var arr = Array.ofDim[Int](2,2) // Creating multidimensional array

    arr(1)(0) = 15 // Assigning value

    def show(){

        for(i<- 0 to 1){ // Traversing elements by using loop

           for(j<- 0 to 1){

                print(" "+arr(i)(j))

            }

            println()

        }

        println("Third Element = "+ arr(1)(1)) // Accessing elements by using index

    }

}

object MainObject{

    def main(args:Array[String]){

        var a = new ArrayExample()

        a.show()

    }

}

Output:

0 0

15 0

Third Element = 0

Scala Multidimensional Array by using Array of Array

Apart from ofDim you can also create multidimensional array by using array of array. In this example, we have created multidimensional array by using array of array.

class ArrayExample{

    var arr = Array(Array(1,2,3,4,5), Array(6,7,8,9,10)) // Creating multidimensional array

    def show(){

        for(i<- 0 to 1){ // Traversing elements using loop

           for(j<- 0 to 4){

                print(" "+arr(i)(j))

            }

            println()

        }

    }

}

object MainObject{

    def main(args:Array[String]){

        var a = new ArrayExample()

        a.show()

    }

}

Output:

1 2 3 4 5
6 7 8 9 10
