Check that function exists

21 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I know that you can check to see whether a variable has been declared by using the function IsDeclared. Is there a similar function that can tell me whether a function exists?

Thanks.

Unless I am missing what you're asking, SciTe should tell you if it detects a missing function when you try to Run/Compile. Otherwise, I would think you could check with CTRL + F5 (SyntaxCheck Prod).

IsDeclared should ideally be used when it's a last resort, though I've never used myself (did back a couple of years ago but that was bad!) Though I can't understand if you would like to know whether or not you've written a function, could you explain?

OfChange,

Looking at Call it states...

Both @error and @extended may contain values if the called function set them.

The reason I am asking is because I am writing a script at the moment in which I am using an array to store the menu information (It helps a lot with customization in the way of languages and customization of hotkeys). I am placing the names of the functions that need to be called in this array, and then when I use GuiCtrlSetOnEvent, if the function named by the array element doesn't exist, it doesn't error.

Then make sure you use the right function names inside the array from the beginning. :)

Do you sometimes read the help file :)

It clearly states:

"Sets @error to 0xDEAD and @extended to 0xBEEF if the function does not exist or invalid number of parameters."

$var = "Test1"
Call($var)
$Er = @error
$Ex = @extended
ConsoleWrite("$Er: " & $Er & " (dec), " & Hex($Er, 4) & " (hex); $Ex: " & $Ex & " (dec), " & Hex($Ex, 4) & " (hex)" & @CRLF)

Call("Test2")
$Er = @error
$Ex = @extended
ConsoleWrite("$Er: " & $Er & " (dec), " & Hex($Er, 4) & " (hex); $Ex: " & $Ex & " (dec), " & Hex($Ex, 4) & " (hex)" & @CRLF)

Func Test2($param1)

EndFunc   ;==>Test2

Gives you

$Er: 57005 (dec), DEAD (hex); $Ex: 48879 (dec), BEEF (hex)
$Er: 57005 (dec), DEAD (hex); $Ex: 48879 (dec), BEEF (hex)
with Autoit 3.3.8.0

@Extended doesn't seem to work (always returns 0) but @error does. It returns @error and @extended as described.

Yes, that would help, but I would like to have error alerts in my program if it doesn't work.

I always read the help file. But I am not using the call function, I am using GuiCtrlSetOnEvent, as mentioned earlier.

As far as I am aware of, there's no function that checks to see if a function exists. Even if there were, you'd still have to recurse through your array of function names and check them individually, which kind of defeats the purpose of checking it in the first place because you can do it manually just as easily.

Then you'd have to write a function to check to ensure your function to check functions is functioning. I believe that is one of the signs of the Apocalypse :)

I think the best way for you to go about this is to handle the error if it occurs.

Are you dynamically setting hotkeys via user input, where they enter the name of a function?

If this is the case, then I suggest you test the result of hotkeyset, as that will fail if the function does

not exist.

      Hi,
      I wonder if
      AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode = Y can include run information about functions which are called within the main code. So far I noticed in the console that the function itself is called but no specific run information from  inside the function is provided. Is there a chance to show the entire debug log including functions in the console?
      I furthermore noticed a stop of information when a loop is entered. What could be the reason for that?
       
      Thanks for help.

      Is this possible:
      Executing a function from an include, but taking the function name from a gui input and then executing that function using the include:
      #include <Something.au3> ;input reads "Tree" $functionName = GuiCtrlRead($input1) $functionName(1) And the include is gonna have
      Func Tree($x) If $x = 1 Then $this = "text" MsgBox(0,$this,"whatever") EndFunc is it possible?

      Hello, i'm making a little script that lets users enter a question and if the script can't answer to, it ask what would be the answer (a bit like siri on IPhones). And I try to display the "supposed array" I still have an error.. I searched on Google and got nothing looked in the help file too.. I'm here to know if someone have a solution to my error please.
      Here is where $a and $b should become arrays :
      Dim $dossier = @AppDataDir & "\Siri2" Dim $chemin = $dossier & "\data.ini" Global $a = _InfoRead($chemin, 0) Global $b = _InfoRead($chemin, 1) with this function :
      Func _InfoRead($path, $mode = 0) If DirGetSize($dossier) = -1 Then Return SetError(-4) If Not FileExists($chemin) Then Return SetError(-5) Local $readed = IniReadSection($path, "data") If @error Then Return SetError(-3) $size = $readed[0][0] Local $return[$size] For $i = 1 To $size Step 1 $return[$i - 1] = $readed[$i][$mode] Next Return $return EndFunc and the thing that i don't understand is that, after _InfoRead return affected to $a, I can't use _ArrayDisplay because of  error 1 "$aArray is not an array" (and same fpr the variable $b)..
      Can please someone help me to understand why is it doing this ?

      I'm new to Auotit but I have built a simple script that "runs" a different "batch" file based on certain days of the workweek. The script works now, but I was wanting to eliminate the need for a manual date entry. For example "First Batch' needs to run every Tuesday thru Thursday however "Second Batch" needs to run only on Friday and "Third Batch" needs to run only on Monday. In addition the 1st batch file runs on Tuesday, say 06/06 (the "FW" section) but then needs to actually report (the F4 date) the next weekday so this Batch actually needs 2 dates verified. 
      What I'm trying to do is when the script is initiated it gets the date, verifies if and which weekday it is and in turn goes to and runs the appropriate "Batch' file.  
      I've found ways to verify weekdays but can't find anything to do all of the above.
      Any help is MUCH appreciated.
