Optional Function Parameters can't consist of joined Strings?

Kinda strange I never tried this before but why is the following code not allowed?

Func _testExec($CMD, $FileDir = @ProgramFilesDir & "\ProgramX\file.exe")
   ShellExecuteWait($FileDir, $CMD)
EndFunc
_testExec("--command")

I'm not allowed to combine @ProgramFiles & "ProgramXfile.exe"

 

But this on the otherhand works.

Func _testExec($CMD, $FileDir)
   ShellExecuteWait($FileDir, $CMD)
EndFunc

_testExec("--command", @ProgramFilesDir & "\ProgramX\file.exe")

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

EDIT: Corrected @ProgramFilesDir macro

bootybay,

I had to change the macro to the correct name (@ProgramFilesDir) but after doing so both of those snippets worked fine for me when I substituted one of my programs: :)

_testExec("fred4.au3")

Func _testExec($CMD, $FileDir = @ProgramFilesDir & "\Frhed\frhed.exe")
   ShellExecuteWait($FileDir, $CMD)
EndFunc
_testExec("fred4.au3", @ProgramFilesDir & "\Frhed\frhed.exe")

Func _testExec($CMD, $FileDir)
   ShellExecuteWait($FileDir, $CMD)
EndFunc
What version of AutoIt are you running? :huh:

Oh I'm sorry. I actually used the right @ProgramFilesDir in my code.

So it actually looks like yours:

_testExec("fred4.au3") 
Func _testExec($CMD, $FileDir = @ProgramFilesDir & "\Frhed\frhed.exe")
    ShellExecuteWait($FileDir, $CMD) 
EndFunc

But when I try to run the function this shows in scite. (Same happens when Copy yours into a new au3.)

ERROR: syntax error
REF: definition of _testExec()

And

test3.au3(3,50) : ERROR: syntax error
Func _testExec($CMD, $FileDir = @ProgramFilesDir &
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^
test3.au3(3,71) : ERROR: _testExec() called by a previous line with 1 arg(s). Max = 0. First previous line calling this Func is 1.
Func _testExec($CMD, $FileDir = @ProgramFilesDir & "\Frhed\frhed.exe")
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^
test3.au3 - 2 error(s), 0 warning(s)

I'm using v3.3.8.1

bootybay,

Those errors look as if they come from Au3Check. I am using v3.3.12.0 so either that utility or AutoIt itself could have been updated. Perhaps an upgdate is indicated. ;)
