User Defined Variables stored in Own Library

Recommended Posts

ZWD40

Im making my own library containing my oft used functions

how do I store my often used variables in that library

and how do I call it on my other scripts?

ZWD40,

The short answer is to declare your variables in Global scope within the file and #include the file at the top of your script. Then you can use them like any other variable. :bye:

The bigger question is what sort of variables are you looking to store in this file? Almost by definition, variables change in value - so what is the purpose of storing them? :oops:

mostly dimensions coordinates

since Im using a bunch of common functions that I use on my 2 laptops and my desktop

and they have differing resolutions, file paths, etc

so I thought I'd create my own library containing my oft used functions(for various scripts) and thought I'd clean it up a bit and use pre-determined variables for each computer

thanks for the quick reply :oops:

ZWD40,

I thought something like that might the case, but I felt I had to ask. :oops:

You might want to declare them as Const so that you get a warning if you try to reuse the same name in a script. :bye:

here's my understanding of it:

;--myListOfCommonFuncs.au3

Const Dim $coord1OfFuncX[2] = [0,0]
func iDoStuff()
endfunc

;--specializedFunc1.au3
#include <myListOfCommonFuncs.au3>

mouseclick("left", $coord1OfFuncX[0], $coord1OfFuncX[1])

thanks for the quick replies and for your awesome sig

ZWD40,

Looks fine, but do not use Dim - set the scope explicitly with Global. Read the Variables - using Global, Local and ByRef tutorial in the Wiki to find out more. :bye:

Glad you like my UDFs. :oops:
