Autoit warn/stop on EVERY warning/error

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to get autoit to stop or error out on every minor warning or error? Like lets say it can't access a file.. instead of just continuing, forcing a quit or a warning? I want to debug my program and when I initially wrote my massive and bloated program I didn't include much in the way of error catching.. Is there a trigger of some sort that I can add so it runs in 'stop on EVERY error or failure mode'?

No. Just add sensible error handling.

Not all errors mean that you must exit internal function to main loop.
Some @error could mean that you need to repeat the same function for example:

$ADO_ERR_RECORDSETEMPTY, _ ;        The Recordset is Empty
        $ADO_ERR_NOCURRENTRECORD, _ ;       The Recordset has no current record

which mean that SQL Execute was performed correctly but without any row results.

I'm confused.. what does SQL have to do with all this? And yes, I know that for different errors I will want to trigger different effects but I was hoping to kinda 'catch' them all. No worries :) Thanks though.

And with proper error handling you will catch the majority. If your goal is to capture every possible error that could happen in any given scenario, might as well shoot yourself now and save yourself the headache.

Well, when you have discovered the hammer function, every problem is a nail...

Well, until code is produced by a serious formal method.
