General Question

6 posts in this topic

Can you write a wrapper for a function?

As is can I create my own version of winwait that takes the same parameters but does additional stuff?

Have you actually done a forum search? Or looked in the Examples section? Many have taken standard UDFs and improved upon them (the first to pop into my head is _FileListToArrayEX). Also, please use a more descriptive title when posting. This is the General Help and Support - everyone here has a General Question ;)

Did you try?

WinWait("Title", "Text")
Func WinWait($title, $text)
    MsgBox(0, "", "Your function was called!")
    Return
EndFunc   ;==>WinWait

Gives: C:TempTest.au3(2,28) : ERROR: WinWait() already defined.

The error message tells you that you can't replace one of the builtin functions of AutoIt with your own.

Usually a function gets a prefix "_" to denote that it is a user written function (from a UDF).

Means: Write your own _WinWait function.
