Inetget @error = 1

9 posts in this topic

Hi Experts,

I am ready to get embarrassed...the following code returns @error=1 :

#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****

#AutoIt3Wrapper_outfile=d:\sd\exe\inetgettst.exe

#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****

#include <Date.au3>

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#Include <GuiListView.au3>

Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1) ;0=no, 1=require pre-declare

InetGet("www.scoresandodds.com/boxscore_20090615MLCLEVELAND0.html","D:\ttt.txt",1)

MsgBox(0, "", @error)

I get the same results whether I run it thru the interpreter or as a standalone module...the output file is not written and @error is "1"...

Checked AV and firewall for events but nothing...

I am sure that I am not seeing something obvious but do not not what it is...

Help, please...

Kylomas

George,

Thanks for the prompt reply...this was making me nuts thinking that I had forgotten how to read/code...

I have another routine that DOES work but is passing in the url as a variable..any thoughts on that??

What do you mean? Of course you can use either a litteral or a string variable or the string return value of a function as the URL parameter. So what do _you_ think?

George,

Once again, thanks...

My error...reviewed code that works (again) and I am passing int he high-level qualifier (HTTP://)...

(hiding head in embarrassment)

One other question...have read all of the doc that I can find (help files, examples, Google searches, this forum) Can you point me at some additional doc (then I can quit asking idiotic questions, maybe!!) ??

Thanks,

Kylomas

Do you have examples of questions that are not covered in the help file?

jchd,

Please do not interpret my questions as any kind of criticism, expressed or implied...

for an example of my confusion see the InetGet help doc...

I'm assuming that in the RETURN VALUE section after doc for "SUCCESS:" should be a tag for "FAILURE:" (about 5 lines down). This is obviously a doc error, however, when reading this help file member I could draw incorrect inferences about the use of a return variable after looking at the examples...e.g. foreground xfer examples do not use a return variable...but is is not clear whether they can or cannot not use a return variable without trial and error...perhaps this is nitpicking...

Net out...every tool has it's own flavor with regard to implementation, use and doc...let's say that I don't have a feel for the AutoIT flavor, yet...

Again,

Thanks to everyone that took time to reply...

Kylomas

You're right, there is a minor error in this page: there should be a Failure: tag 3 lines below Success:

Thank's for pointing this out.

I'm assuming that in the RETURN VALUE section after doc for "SUCCESS:" should be a tag for "FAILURE:" (about 5 lines down). This is obviously a doc error, however, when reading this help file member I could draw incorrect inferences about the use of a return variable after looking at the examples

Even with the tag missing, what you have is (I wonder if Failure: will survive Code tag):

Success: depends on background use
    Background: returns a handle
    Wait: returns the size d/l
[color="#ff0000"]Failure:[/color] Background: handle. Use it to feed error-checking function
    Wait: return 0 and sets @error

The intents seems pretty obvious anyway. It's fairly difficult to reach 100% with a documentation of this size!

...e.g. foreground xfer examples do not use a return variable

It would be difficult as well to illustrate the usage or not usage of any optional parameter and return value for every function. Using the return value is optional, of course.

That was not an idiotic question. It's an error in the documentation that has been corrected in the latest Beta version, I just happened to be aware of it.
