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.

      [Solved] Calculate/Compare Functions speed ?
      By DrAhmed
      Hey 
      I've these two functions to do a base64 conversation , Is there any way to compare the exact speed of both of them ?

      List of HotKeySets
      By Simpel
      Hi,
       
      I have written a programm offering me a lot of hotkeys to work with windows. All in all there are 40 hotkeys defined now.
      Now I made a portable version of it. But in this there are a lot of hotkeys useless. So I had to change some things. But that's not my point.
      Because of all these many hotkeys I sometimes know I made a hotkey but what were the keys I have to press.
      So I want to make a little help GUI or html or whatever. Now I'm interested to automate my own list of hotkeys.
      How can I collect all my hotkeys and necessary keys for this in a list?
       
      Regard, Conrad

      How to enable a window?
      By afallenhope
      Hello all I am trying to use this function to detect if a specific window is running. Then for it to activate it and send an ALT+F command to close the window. But I cannot seem to get it to detect the window and subsequently the rest of the code does not work. 
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Handleit() Func Handleit() If WinExists("[CLASS:MsiDialogCloseClass]","InstallShield") Then WinActivate("[CLASS:MsiDialogCloseClass]","Installshield") Send("!f") Else MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Uhhh... something didn't work. Fix it!") EndIf EndFunc Is there anything that I can substitute for the CLASS? 
      Thank you for taking the time to read my question!
