How to maintain library separately

Recommended Posts

ur

I am maintaining all the reusable code in a separate file as library.au3.

In that file I have referenced some dependent files using fileinstall, so that they will be extracted when necessary.

 

Problem is, if I use a function in the library.au3 in another script which doesn't require this dependent file, as I am including the whole file using include tag, it is embedding that file also.

Is there any way to exclude that.

ur,

I would suggest that you should split up this single library into several smaller files which are more tailored in their application. The same thing happened to AutoIt with the release of  v3.2.12.0 - the previously huge install files were split into many smaller ones which were much more focused in their application.

Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:

Spoiler

ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

      Hello,
      Is there any way to check for validity of a pointer to a DllStruct ?
      In the above code, a DllStruct is created from an invalid pointer. How to prevent from doing this ?
      local $tStruct = DllStructCreate("int i") DllStructSetData($tStruct, "i", 123) local $pStruct = DllStructGetPtr($tStruct) $tStruct = 0 ; destroy DllStruct ==> $pStruct becomes invalid ; how to check here for validity of $pStruct and prevent from doing the following ? $tStruct = DllStructCreate("int i", $pStruct) ; create DllStruct from invalid pointer... MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, @error) ; displays '0' : invalid pointer is not detected by DllStructCreate() MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, IsDllStruct($tStruct)) ; displays '1' : tStruct is assumed as a valid DllStruct object, which is not Thanks for help

      I am trying to make a simple installer script for my understanding.  I would just like to understand how to deal with multiple possible windows. In the case of installing VLC, I might get a window saying VLC is already installed. I have also tried a switch with no luck.  I would just like to understand some methods for dealing with the possible existence of unexpected windows. 
       
      ;INSTALL VLC VIEWER
      Run(@ScriptDir & '\bin\VLCViewer_2.2.4_3.EXE')
      AutoItSetOption('MouseCoordMode', 0)
      sleep(4000)
      WinWait("VLC Viewer 2.2.4")

           ; this window will pop up if vlc is already installed
          If WinExists( "VLC Viewer 2.2.4", "VLC 2.2.4 Already Installed") Then
                ConsoleWrite ("already installed")
                WinActivate ('VLC Viewer 2.2.4','Already Installed')
                MouseClick ('primary', 93, 83, 1, 0)
                
          EndIf
       
            ; this window will pop up if installer finishes sucessfully
           If WinExists( "VLC Viewer 2.2.4", "VLC Viewer 2.2.4 Installed") Then 
                ConsoleWrite ("already installed")
                WinActivate ('VLC Viewer 2.2.4','VlC Installed')
                MouseClick ('primary', 93, 83, 1, 0)
         EndIf
