Code that works in Beta fails Beta syntax check

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Greetings:
 
I am messing around with the new map behavior in the beta.  Specifically I am running the code found in post #5 here -> '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>
 
Although that code works, "Syntax Check Beta" fails the code at the point where I simulate an object.  So I guess my question is this: Is my syntax "illegal but it happens to work"?  Or is it legal but the syntax check program simply hasn't been updated yet?  Or finally should I be doing this a different way?
 
Code here again so you don't have to follow a link:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $aObjs[2] = [NewFoo(), NewBar()]
For $i = 0 To UBound($aObjs) - 1
    Local $sMsg = ($aObjs[$i].Output)() ; <-- This line of code is flagged as a syntax error
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Test", $sMsg)
Next

Func NewFoo()
    Local $mPseudoObj[]
    $mPseudoObj["Output"] = FooOutput
    Return $mPseudoObj
EndFunc

Func FooOutput()
    Return "Foo"
EndFunc


Func NewBar()
    Local $mPseudoObj[]
    $mPseudoObj["Output"] = BarOutput
    Return $mPseudoObj
EndFunc

Func BarOutput()
    Return "Bar"
EndFunc

[EDIT] Corrected minor stupidity on my part in the code...

That code won't run with the beta even if you turn off the Au3Check.

I get this when I run it.

 

Unbalanced brackets in expression.:
Local $sMsg = ($aObjs[$i]).Output)()
Local $sMsg = ^ ERROR


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.

Sorry, copy/paste problem.  That line of code should be:

Local $sMsg = ($aObjs[$i].Output)()

 

[EDIT] Perhaps I should add that the syntax error to which I referred was not the syntax error BrewManNH kindly pointed out.  The error trace in SciTE after running beta syntax check looks like this:

It is correct that au3check not all Beta syntax supports. there is another one open which is similar to this one.

https://www.autoitscript.com/trac/autoit/ticket/2822

I haven't felt the urge for a while to open the sourcecode and start debugging.

I have a follow-up question: Is it possible to disable the syntax check that runs in SciTE for beta code?  I would even be willing to live without the syntax check for all code if I can put it back with (relative) ease.

I find that being forced to run the code from a right-click is tedious.  I would be willing to live without the syntax check in order to have the capability of using F5, the console, and the other nice things SciTE brings...

Just for laughs, I more or less wrote the SimuDuck that's on page 22 of Head First Design Patterns in pseudo OO AutoIt.  As you can see, we can't do full-blown OO, but we can do more-or-less duck type OO reasonably well.  It's a little weird having to send the object instance as the first parameter of the calls, but anybody that's programmed in Perl or Python (or ??) will not be too upset about receiving the instance in the function.

I say this again, I can't freaking wait until this hits production!

Be sure to run this with the Beta build...
