Variable declaration with _IEGetObjByName

Recommended Posts


Hi, my autoit program doesn't work. It sends me an error "Viariable used without being declared".

The lines concerned are :

_IEAction($o_write, "click")
_IEFormElementSetValue($o_write, $write)

this is the part of the code concerned :

Local $oIE = _IECreate("mywebsite.com")

Local $write = "Hello you"
If IsObj(_IEGetObjByName($oIE, "write-here")) = 1 Then
    Local $o_write = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "write-here")
ElseIf IsObj(_IEGetObjByName($oIE, "write")) = 1 Then
    Local $o_write = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "write")

_IEAction($o_write, "click")
_IEFormElementSetValue($o_write, $write)

I tested it on a website which has a object named "write", so the variable $o_write is supposed to be declared as "_IEGetObjByName($oIE, "write")".

I don't get why autoit thinks that the variable isn't declared.

Does anybody know what I don't get ?

It's not declared because neither of your If statements resolve to TRUE so the variable declaration never happens. Find out why neither of those are TRUE and that should fix the problem.

Although as a good coding practice you should never declare a variable that way, declare the variable first then use the If/Then to set its value.

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.
