Possible AU3Check Bug?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I think I have encountered a bug in AU3Check... Here is the code with the bug:

#include <GuiButton.au3>

Local $idCancel

I get a "error: $idCancel previously declared as a 'Const'." when I run the code on line no. 3, here is the SciTE Console Log:

>"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\..\AutoIt3.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.au3" /run /prod /ErrorStdOut /in "C:\Users\TheDcoder\Desktop\AIO AutoIt Test Script.au3" /UserParams

So, Is this a bug? Thanks in Advance, TD :D

No bug. If you actually bothered to work through the chain of include files that you get with GUIButton.au3 you find that you will also include MsgBoxConstants.au3, one line of which reads:

Global Const $IDCANCEL = 2 ; Cancel button was selected

So the name you have chosen was indeed already declared as a constant and hence you get the warning. I suggest you change the variable name you wish to use.


P.S. I remember bringing up this very possibility when the constants were named - but was overruled - so there is no point in opening a feature request asking for them to be changed.

Nice explanation :o, I tried to search for $idCancel but I guess the search is case-sensitive, It explains all the contradictions :)

I was right about making a topic before opening a bug report :P
