Error in GUI function script

5 posts in this topic

I have a GUI script and setup Case with Variables and then functions for each case.

The script runs fine with no errors until I add something into this one function (for a button on the GUI that when pushed, should simply launch a website).

Not sure if I need the entire code here or if someone can identify whether I'm just unable to accomplish this within a Func / EndFunc.

Syntax Check shows no errors in the script when this portion of the script is simply:

Func _OpenDIDButton()
EndFunc

But when I take that portion of the script, and add something inside of it, such as:

Func _OpenDIDButton()
#include <IE.au3>
_IECreate ( [$s_Url = "about:blank" [, $f_tryAttach = 0 [, $f_visible = 1 [, $f_wait = 1 [, $f_takeFocus = 1]]]]] )
EndFunc

Then I run Syntax Check and it reports:

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\WinAPIError.au3(29,1) : ERROR: syntax error

Func

^

Is that referencing line 29, character 1?

Line 29 is in this portion:

While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
  Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
   Exit
  Case $GenChecklistButton
   _GenCheckListButton()
  Case $EmailMgrsButton
   _EmailMgrsButton()
  Case $DisableADButton
   _DisableADButton()
  Case $OpenDIDButton
   _OpenDIDButton()
EndSwitch
WEnd

#include "pastes" the file where the statement is, so what you are doing here is just no going to work. You can't declare a function inside of another (just like the error said). Why are you trying that anyway?

Just move the #include to the top of your script.

Edit:

Is that referencing line 29, character 1?

Something like that. Why don't you look at the two lines under that where it shows exactly where the problem is?

Func

^

It's not that hard if you think logically.

jgq85,

The #include directive adds the code at that point in the script - so you are putting all of IE.au3 inside your function. :oops:

Just add the #include line at the top of your script and see if that solves your problem. :D

BTW: Your _IECreate statement is wrong. You inserted the syntax description.

Try something like:

_IECreate("www.google.com")

Thanks that works. I did try moving the # include to top, but had still left the wrong IECreate function (copy/paste from the reference website).

I do something beyond a few lines of code and start acting stupid.

Thanks again and SORRY!!!

      Sorry for posting this, but I have search the forum for how to put a graph to my project and I found several hits.
      I found this https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/104399-graphgdiplus-udf-create-gdi-line-graphs/?do=findComment&comment=1311822 but I'm not sure if this is still a live.
      I posted a question in it, but no answer yet.
      Is the thread still alive or can someone point me to UDF that's working.
      Thank you.

      Hello!
       I've been going through all of the help files and examples, but I feel lost. I can't seem to find what I need. Essentially, what I'm doing is simple(in my head).
      Create a file based on the information needed, select a line in that file, then put that line back in DOS. My code is below, I know it's messy, but I'll take the heat if you can help.
