@extended (error handling)

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

I've run in to a problem with DriveMapAdd sometimes failing with the Error=1 Extended=0 and the drive not mapping.

So to give the user a better error description i found the command  _WinAPI_FormatMessage which should give me wonderfull Windows messages, but it only returns a single letter.

I found a wouldbe working code sniplet i could change to fit my needs, how ever it doesn't work for me as it is and even when i change it so that it doesn't produce errors it still doesn't work.

It seems to have worked for the guy right here: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

Unedited:

#include <WinAPI.au3>

$n = 53; Error code
MsgBox(64, "Test", _WinAPI_GetErrorMessage($n))

Func _WinAPI_GetErrorMessage($iErrorNum)
    Local $tText

    $tText = DllStructCreate("char Text[4096]")
    _WinAPI_FormatMessage($__WINAPCONSTANT_FORMAT_MESSAGE_FROM_SYSTEM, 0, $iErrorNum, 0, DllStructGetPtr($tText), 4096, 0)
    Return DllStructGetData($tText, "Text")
EndFunc  ;==>_WinAPI_GetErrorMessage

My attempt:

#include <WinAPI.au3>

Local Const $FORMAT_MESSAGE_FROM_SYSTEM = 0x00001000

$n = 53; Error code
MsgBox(64, "Test", _WinAPI_GetErrorMessage($n))

Func _WinAPI_GetErrorMessage($iErrorNum)
    Local $tText

    $tText = DllStructCreate("char Text[4096]")
    $ptext = DllStructGetPtr($tText)
    _WinAPI_FormatMessage($FORMAT_MESSAGE_FROM_SYSTEM, 0, $iErrorNum, 0, $ptext, 4096, 0)
    Return DllStructGetData($tText, "Text")
EndFunc  ;==>_WinAPI_GetErrorMessage

Any help would be greatly apprisiated

How about this?
 

#include <WinAPIdiag.au3>

$n = 53; Error code
MsgBox(64, "Test", _WinAPI_GetErrorMessage($n))

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.

      Hi all,
      Bit of a fun one with querying WMI objects and setting errors within a function.  Below is example code that I've used from JSThePatriot previous UDFs but the example would apply to many other scenarios.  Basically the SetError should be called if $colItems is not an object as a result of the WMI query.  This is then used to create a corresponding error message.
      I've tried disabling WMIC thus forcing it to not be an object, but rather than catching the error and telling me about it, the code simply fails therefore surely making the purpose of the logging useless??  I've experienced this before but in other languages such as java i would use a try catch etc and get around this....any suggestions for its use in AutoIT?

      Thanks

      I have created some scripts using IE.au3 but i havent implemented any good error handling logic yet. In case of any errors IE.au3 prints the errors in the console. I believe those errors are printed to console using __IEErrorNotify function. I want to use these error messages and insert those into a text file or an excel. Any ideas? Basically if error messages are generated from IE.au3 after accessing its functions, then i want to write them to a file.
