#include-once not working in functions that are called multiple times

I know this is probably retarded...

I was thinking it would be cool to do the includes inside my functions, so I can just copy/paste the functions into new programs.

But #include-once does not help when the function is called multiple times.

I had to do this to get it to work

Func foo()
    if Not IsDeclared("BS_CENTER") then
        #include <ButtonConstants.au3>
    EndIf
    if Not IsDeclared("SS_CENTER") then
        #include <StaticConstants.au3>
    EndIf
EndFunc

I decided it was too ugly :idea:

So I just added a comment at the beginning of my functions saying what includes it needs.

In AutoIt, #includes are processed _before_ the interpreter gets at the first instruction. So your construct was meaningless.

Place all you #includes at top of relevant files, use #include-once in your own UDFs files if they are referenced in more than one source file ( for large projects).


This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.
