Shellexecute error

5 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I have a script that runs a program, open an folder or file or open a internet adress.

i use ShellExecute()

I want to make a own error if it doesn't exists.

i've got this:

ShellExecute($rVAR) ;$rVAR is the request of a gui control with GUICtrlRead()
        If @error Then
            MsgBox(16,"Error","WindowsRun 1.0 can't find "& $rVAR &". Make sure it's a working internet adress or"&@CRLF&"use the browse button to browse to a file.")
        EndIf

With this script first comes the windows default error window, and then my own error.

how have i to do this?


PowerSlide2UnlockiPhone look-a-like program you can use to lock your pc, you can't access your desktop again until the password is entered and the slider slided to the right. (really proud of it)-- After a time AutoIt and Windows, I switched to Mac. Don't expect me to answer anymore.

AppTux,

Surely the way to approach this is to check $rVAR before you try to ShellExecute it?

If it is a "program, [...] folder or file" then FileExists would do this - for an "internet address", Ping seems to be a good place to start, although I stand ready to be corrected on that. ;)

Then you can produce your own message if there is an error, and proceed to ShellExecute if not. :evil:

Sorry I can't be much of help, but to say that your word "address" is spelled wrongly.

i try several ways, but it doesn't work good and fast.

if the script has to ping, it's during a long time (sometimes 10 seconds)

that's too long.

i use the default windows error message... ;)

I've found that InetGetSize() is often a faster test than Ping().

If InetGetSize("http:\\www.myaddress.com") Then
    ;;Do whatever you want
EndIf
