Catch 'Unknown function name' Error

Recommended Posts

rdr

Hello all,

Is there a way to catch the 'Unknown function name' AutoIt error?

I am getting it in a case that is irrelevant to the message and although I have an error object that triggers my error handling method when com errors occur, I am just getting a pop up message when this error happens. Is there a way to handle it differently?

Thank you,

rdr

//edit: I am using the latest Beta version

rdr,

The obvious solution is to syntax check your code to make sure you do not have any missing includes - the ususal reason for such errors. If you use the full SciTE4AutoIt3 package you can use Au3Check to do this - and if you run the script from within the editor it happens automatically. :)

Thank you for the reply.

The thing is that I get the error in a very specific case: when a process of the software I am manipulating through AutoIt is left running. In the case were a fresh start of the software is made, the error does not occur. So, could it still be a missing include?

rdr,

Why would another app running cause an "unknown function" error in an AutoIt script? :wacko:

Can you post the section of code that calls this "unknown function"? :huh:

Heh, I can understand your puzzle, but it looks like it just happens. I am using LibreOffice and I am just calling a method on its API. This is the part of the code:

...

1. $oReturn = $oDesktop.loadComponentFromURL($sURL, "_default", 0, $aoProperties)
2.  If Not IsObj($oReturn) Then
3.       _ErrorNotify("Error", $sFuncName, "", "$_GeneralError")
4.      Return SetError($_OOoCalcStatus_GeneralError, 0, 0)
5.  Else
6.       Return SetSuccess($_OOoCalcStatus_Success)
7.  EndIf

The code never reaches line 2 when a process of LibreOffice is left running. In the other case, it just runs fine. Weird, I know.

rdr,

I have never used the OpenOffice UDF so I have no idea what is happening, sorry. :(

But as you know that the problem is caused by a particular LibreOffice process, can you not check in your script if the process is active and if necessary kill and/or restart it before continuing? :huh:

So if you know it is being caused by a specific process, check for it first

Edit: Damn Melba's fast fingers :)
