Duplicate functions remover (rename)

Recommended Posts

Sometimes we have such situations when udfs have duplicate functions. If you have 1 or 2 duplicates, it is still ok to handle. But if you have a long list of them? Once I had to spend almost one hour dealing with this. You have to run the script, then you get a message "Duplicate Function...." Then you open that udf and you deicde what to do with that.


My solution is quite simple. I rename them. Simply rename Function Somefunction() to Function Somefunction2() Or as you like it

Here is the udf, you may use it and modify as you like


1.Compile it and run

2. Choose the file which would be modified (which has duplicate functions)

3. Run the script which you are testing from Scite

4. When you see the message: Duplicate function.... Press F2- the function will be renamed

 HotKeySet("{F2}", "capture")
 #include <File.au3>
$sFileOpenDialog = FileOpenDialog("Choose file", @WindowsDir & "\", "AutoIt(*.au3)"); Choose the file which will be modified

while 1()


func capture()
$sText = WinGetText("[ACTIVE]")
$infoarray = StringRegExp($sText, '(?s)Duplicate function name.*(Func.*?)\(', 3)
$iRetval = _ReplaceStringInFile($sFileOpenDialog, $infoarray[0], $infoarray[0]&"2")

Enjoy :)

Your While loop needs a sleep inside it? Your While loop is also written wrong and will cause an error as soon as you run it BTW. There is no function 1() in your script.

Why are you getting the text from a window if you're opening a file in the beginning of the script? What is supposed to be in this window that you need the text from, and what window is it supposed to be?

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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Never had an error with while 1()  end... Perhaps I used wrong syntax before, correct me if I am wrong

While wend doesnt need sleep, otherwise the hotkey may not run the function, what do you think?

I am opening the file for editing- this is a file of some .au3 which may have duplicates and it is included in your testing script

I am getting the scite text from the testing script in case if it has duplicate fun error. These are 2 different files
