To skip code if it is a library

10 posts in this topic

Is there any way to skip the execution of a particular block of code like any condition or expression, if the au3 file is included as library.?

Like, in my code I wrote all the functionality as functions and called them in 4 lines.

Now I have another requirement where I need to use the same code but different.So I am importing this code so that I can use these functions.

But the code block which is outside the functions (main code) is being executed when I import the au3 file.Is there any condition to check whether the file is running directly or included in another au3 file as library, so that I can keep the same here.

 

Please suggest if any ideas.

ur,

Code from an included file is taken verbatim into the main script at the point of the #include directive, so there is no way of directly determining if the code comes from a library or not when the script is running.

If you were a little clearer in your description we might be able to offer some ideas to help - can you show at least some pseudo-code to indicate exactly what you are trying to do.

You should not have main code in included scripts, but instead put that main code in a function too, so you can decide whether to call it or not. You should have as much code as possible in functions anyway, even in your main script, for the same reason.

In one file I have written complete logic to build ism files in functions and in the main code.I am calling two custom functions written.

build32();this custom function will compile one particular set of ism 32bit files.
build64();this custom function will compile one particular set of ism 64bit files.

Now, different requirement came where the user should have option to select the ism files(around 9 are there and user will select in the GUI as checkboxes), so I wrote separate au3 file for the selection and calling the above functions based on his selection in GUI.The above lines are in main code should not be executed when I call this in library because I am calling them in the new file based on the user selection.

I don't want to completely remove the lines from main code as we are using that file in different scenario also.If I keep a separate copy of each, then I need to change it every time in both places.Instead, is there any way to surround the above two lines with a if condition.

I tried by keeping a global variable (true or false) and changing it to false in the new code.But it is not taking.

Let me if the files are required, I will attach them.

The thing is that "main" code (code outside of functions) will ALWAYS be executed if/when you include the script. To make your include file more versatile, move that "main" code into a function, or multiple functions, and only call the relevant functions when necessary. That also allows you to have the code inside the function to work with parameters.

If that is somehow not what you need then I guess I'm missing your point. Ideally, write a small reproducer to everyone knows what you are actually doing, or else (indeed) post your code and indicate what's going wrong where.

Hi Bunny,

I have written all the logic to individual functions and calling the below two functions in the main code.

build32();this custom function will compile one particular set of ism 32bit files.
build64(

This main code we are using it for our regular activities.

Now as a separate task, we are creating GUI for selection of particular items and included this main code as library in that GUI code.

But these two functions are getting called in that also as you said.And we can't remove these 2 lines as it will stop the regular task.

So, if possible so that we can surround the above lines with condition so that it will execute in main task and in the GUI it won't.

Please suggest.

This is the main file.

CreateSetup.au3

The GUI code where we are including the above one is.

guibuild.au3

CreateSetup.au3

guibuild.au3

ur,

Looking at those files, I suggest doing as SadBunny has suggested above: placing the GUI creation code you currently have as the "main script" element of guibuild.au3 into a separate function which you can then call when required.

Seems like an ideal use of the IsDeclared function.

Declare a variable in your additional au3, say $additional

in your main script something like ...

If Not IsDeclared("additional")
    build32()
Endif

I tried by creating a variable in the GUI logic file and used the logic by JohnOne

If Not IsDeclared("additional")

But it is taking the variable as undeclared.

So I created the variable on the line above the include statement.

Now it is working...

All of you guys, Thank you very much.

      Hi all,
       
      I am making a program in which I use Bass audio library (with the wrapper for autoit that I found here on forums I think) because of its support for dx effects.
      My problem, though, is that when effects as reverb or echo/delay are added, the channel length is not extended as to fit the tail of the effect, so if the file was really short, you wouldn't even hear the reverb at all.
      I've tried setting the  buffer parameter even to 60k ms, updating the channel length to 60k ms, but nothing makes it so that the effects aren't being cut off.
      I've heard that I could add silence manually to wave files by adding the chr(0) characters, but haven't had any luck doing that, either.
      What I'm doing:
      initialize bass use streamCreateFile to load the wave file with the fx flag and length parameter set to 60000 set the config buffer to 60000 use channel set fx to add dx8 reverb use channel play to play the sound use bass update to update the length to 60000  
      I even tried having only silence in one wave file and tried joining two wave files together, but that didn't work either.
       
      Any help would be very much appreciated.

      How do i add a path to a file in Include.
      I want my script to get the udf in the same folder as the script/exe:
      Include "@ScriptDir/udf.au3" can this be done?

      Good morning community!
      I am working on a script which read from a text file ( .txt ) and should import all the content in a SQLite3 DB, in order to execute some queries that should be difficult to execute on a text file.
      So, I was looking for something very very fast, because the file could be very large ( I don't know exaclty how much can became big, but I know a lot of rows, it's a log file ... )
      I found the "Import method", but I don't know If I can implement it in a query ( @jchd, it's your turn!  )
      Do you know some methods that I can implement in my script to have a very very fast import of thousands and thousands rows in a SQLite3 DB?
      Thanks a lot

      Good evening everyone
      I'm working on this little project for a week, and, what I'm trying to do could be useful for many users as well...
      I'm trying to do a "Report Generator", which reads the data that have to report from a text file (.txt) formatted with this pattern;
      Data1;Data2;Data3;Data4;Data5;;

      YES, there are 2 semi-colon at the end of the line.

      In detail, Data1 is a date/time stamp with this format: YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS ;

      When the script starts, the user is prompted to choose 2 dates which I'll call as:
      Report_Date_Start; Report_Date_Start. So, the report, should cover all dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End.

      And, already at this point, I don't know how to do the query... How can I say to the script:
      SELECT * FROM (.txt) WHERE Data1 BETWEEN Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End; ?

      I thought that I could do a _DateDiff, but if the difference between the two dates is months and not days, how can I do the trick?
      Should I make a Switch...Case with the _DateDiff() and see then calculate all the dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End... But then, how can I compare the dates in the file with all the dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End? I'm going crazy, I know...

      I've already made a "Export Tool", which exports the content of the .txt file in a .db, managed with SQLite... I mean, there I could easily do a query like I did above the thread, but, this "export", for 1080 rows, takes 28 seconds to be done. And, 1080 rows are daily rows that are added every day in the .txt file, so, in a week, the file could be easily 7000+ rows, which means that the "export" would take 3 minutes to be done... And we can go over and over...
      I'll post just for be "complete" what I've done about the export, so, maybe, someone could say how to improve it in terms of efficency...
       
      Local $aContenutoFileAuditReport = "" _FileReadToArray($sFileAudit_Report, $aContenutoFileAuditReport) If(IsArray($aContenutoFileAuditReport) And Not @error) Then Local $aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted = "" Local $sQuery = "" Local $hInizioConteggio = TimerInit() For $i = 1 To UBound($aContenutoFileAuditReport) - 1 $aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted = StringSplit($aContenutoFileAuditReport[$i], ";") $sQuery = "INSERT INTO FileDB_Report(DATESTAMP, TIMESTAMP, USER_ID, OBJECT_ID, DESCRIPTION, COMMENT) " & _ "VALUES(" & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[0]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[1]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[3]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[4]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[5]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[6]) & ");" If(_SQLite_Exec($hFileDB_Report, $sQuery) <> $SQLITE_OK) Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante l'esecuzione della query #" & $i & @CRLF) Else ConsoleWrite("Query eseguita correttamente #" & $i & @CRLF) EndIf Next ConsoleWrite("Esportazione completata in: " & Round(TimerDiff($hInizioConteggio)/1000, 0) & " secondi") Else MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante la lettura del file nell'array." & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) EndIf I know that I can't do queries from a .txt file...
      [19:18] 
      I've been writing this post from 18:40 maybe...
      By the way, if @jchd or someone else could tell me if I can import a formatted .txt file in SQLite and then, do queries on the DB, I'd be very happy for that...
      About the report in PDF, I'm talking with @taietel in order to know how to create a PDF.
      I hope someone will help me
      Sorry for the "long" list of questions...
      Thank you for everything you've done for me
      I have to say that this is the community of programming language that I've loved most!
      By the way, I'll be back tomorrow in the morning ( ~ 9:15 a.m. Italian time ), so, excuse me if I can't answer before that time.
      Hope you guys have a wonderful day/night.

      Thanks again

      I have recorded a gui installation and modified the au3 file as per my requirement.
      But the problem is, whenever I try to compile the au3 file, I am getting a special character on top of the file.

      Can you suggest how to resolve this as it is appearing everytime during compilation.
      And also I am trying to include a au3 file which is separate folder so I am adding the <..\Library.au3> line.
      It is able to pick that but in that file "Library.au3" there is a file install line.
      FileInstall(".\SendMail.ps1", @ScriptDir & "\SendMail.ps1") Library.au3 is being used by many other codes in the previous folder..
      But the current file is looking for the ps1 file in current folder.
      So is there any option to tell the compiler to pick the dependent files relative to Library.au3 instead of the current code.
