Setting @extended value into a variable

7 posts in this topic

I realise there is the SetExtend function, but it only works for hard set values which in my case @extended is not...

I have a value in @extended following StringReplace to count the number of occurences of a word, however I cannot set that @extended into a variable that I could use later in my code.

Any suggestions?

See the StringReplace example code in the Help file.

"$someVariable = @extended" doesn't work? Just remember, just like @error, you have to read the macro immediately after the function you are calling or it gets reset by the function executed after it.

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.

Like this for example from another thread.
 
$String = "one[two[[three[four five] six[ seven["
 
$String = StringReplace($String, "[", "[")
MsgBox(0, "", "Number found = " & @Extended)
$Var = @extended
MsgBox(0, "", "Number found = " & $Var)
 
From the first msgbox, the output of @extended is 6 as expected, but the output of $Var from the second msgbox is 0.
 
What am I missing?

molotofc,

 

What am I missing?

The fact that calling a function resets both @error & @extended - so you need to store the value before you call the first MsgBox:

$String = "one[two[[three[four five] six[ seven["

$String = StringReplace($String, "[", "[")

$Var = @extended

MsgBox(0, "", "Number found = " & @Extended)

MsgBox(0, "", "Number found = " & $Var)
All clear? :)
