Error in GUI function script


5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

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!!!
