_GUICtrlListView_SimpleSort weird error

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

I was wondering if any of you could clarify this a bit, I am just asking because I fell others might have a problem with this function.

When performing a Syntax error Check on my Script, I got an error on the UDF _GUICtrlListView_SimpleSort. Now the problem is that, I compiled the script and it works, even the erroneous function works, but the syntax check gives me an error, so I was wondering If I was just getting lucky or there really is an error. Here is the output :

>C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\..\au3check.exe "C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\My Documents\Script\[name].au3"
AutoIt3 Syntax Checker v1.54.8  Copyright (c) Tylo 2007

C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\My Documents\Script\[name].au3(52,52) : ERROR: _GUICtrlListView_SimpleSort() called with Const or expression on ByRef-param(s).
    _GUICtrlListView_SimpleSort($List, "True", $column)
C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\GuiListView.au3(6763,67) : REF: definition of _GUICtrlListView_SimpleSort().
Func _GUICtrlListView_SimpleSort($hWnd, ByRef $vDescending, $iCol)
C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\My Documents\Script\[name].au3 - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)
>Exit code: 2    Time: 0.305

Here is parts of the code, just so you don't get lost :

$List = GuiCtrlCreateListView($text, 10, 10, $width -20, $height - 20)
$column = _GUICtrlListView_GetColumn($List, 0)
_GUICtrlListView_SimpleSort($List, "True", $column)

If there is any information missing, please tell me.

When the helpfile says things like:

Can be:

True - Sort Descending

False - Sort Ascending

Then they mean the Keyword True/False, not that you should use the words in a string!

So to fix that:

_GUICtrlListView_SimpleSort($List, True, $column)

But then you would still be doing "Const or expression on ByRef-param" so change it again to something like:

$something = True
_GUICtrlListView_SimpleSort($List, $something, $column)

Edit: Your Au3Check looks ancient, you should go and install the latest SciTE4AutoIt3 ASAP!
