Get the function name

4 posts in this topic

There's no macro to get the function name like:

Func a()

MsgBox(0,"",@functionName) ;Shows <a>

Endfunc

Anyone know what I should do to get the desired result?

I'm working on an app with 14k lines and suddenly I was asked to add trace support inside our run-time functions, it would be very helpful if I could get the function name instead of manually adding it to the string.

Thanks.

Add a line to each of your functions:

Func a()
     Local $sFuncName = "a"
     MsgBox(0, "", $sFuncName) ;Shows <a>
EndFunc

There is nothing to do that for you in the native functions, so you would have to put a wrapper around them:

Func _Sleep($i = 10)
     Local $sFuncname = "Sleep"
     MsgBox(0,"",@functionName) ;Shows Sleep
     Sleep($i)
Endfunc

Now you can see why most people get along fine without that.

Alright thanks. I will resort to simply append it to the string containing the trace. I think I will create a python script to do it for me though.

Look in the Tools menu for SciTe, there's a function trace tool that will add trace lines to every function automatically. You will need the full install package of SciTe to get this to show up in the tools menu.
