finding an error

Recommended Posts

uncommon

I get an error after performing a function. But the error only displays the line of code where the error happened. Not in the specific file. I don’t have that many lines of code in my script which leads me to believe that the error line is with all the #includes compiled together.

How do I find where this error is happening? It’s partially troublesome because it only happens sometimes. Suggestions please.

uncommon,

The "too big" line number is indeed because of the include files. I explain how to find the correct line number >here. ;)

Can't you double click the error from within scite and it will jump to the include file at the line it's reporting the error?

Melba23, thanks, I will look into this futher.

NewPlaza, I have not been able to reproduce the problem on my own PC. I only find it occationally on certain client PC. And I have not been able to determin what the computers have in common.

Thankyou both.

I looked into this link, compiled the script with Obfuscator with the /STRIPONLY parameter and

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Obfuscator=y

#Obfuscator_Parameters=/so

 Added to the region.

However, the script still ends far before the indicated error. (Refer to the screenshot above and then below) Note that I have tried compiling in production and in the beta and error still occurs intermittently

Other solutions?

Add this line to the top of your script and run Au3Check on the script and see if anything is reported.

#AutoIt3Wrapper_AU3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w- 4 -w 6

If you're getting an undeclared variable error, that SHOULD pick it up. If it doesn't then you should run through your script line by line following the flow of the code until you can find where you're using a variable name before you've actually declared it. Such as something like this "$c = $c + 1" and you haven't declared $c with a value yet.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

uncommon,

Are you looking at the obfuscated file (which contains all the includes) or your original script? The obfuscated file is named YourScriptName_Obfuscated.au3 and should be in the same folder. :huh:

Most of the time the editor is good at catching error like that, but it won’t catch If Then conditions where a variables may or may not be declared under certain circumstances.

I will look into this more tomorrow thanks for the input.

Yes, that is the actual Obfuscated file, unless I did something wrong in the parameters.

Here is a bigger screenshot.

Variables should NEVER be declared conditionally if you're going to use them elsewhere.

By the way, posting screenshots of your script aren't helping us help you very much. Post your script and things would be a lot easier.

Funny you say that because as soon as was about to post the code. I was looking around the functions where the progress bar was 100% and I noticed a variable that would not have been declared under the circumstances of the screenshot. I think the AU3check setting helped narrow it down.

I was trying to avoid posting the code sense I could not make a small reproducer, but I can still post it if you wanna see it.
