Is it possible for Autoit to log errors to text file?


Recommended Posts

ie, everytime my script encounters an error, instead of popping an error message then croaking, it instead either writes the error into a text file (line # or whatever), or execute an external app.

PS.. I am not referring to handling "@error" codes.
 

Is it possible?

thanks!

Dan

You say "not handling @error codes", but you need to handle the errors (whether that is a pop up or writing to a log file or the event viewer) in order to do something with them; it isn't an automatic thing. How about an example of an error you're meaning to catch, so we can offer suggestions?

i dont need/want to handle the errors.

I want autoit instead of croaking and popping the error window, it would print it to file so I can review it.

By "it" I am not referring to my script, but the autoit engine itself.

Example of error? If I know where the error I wont be asking... whenever the error occurs, the users would click click and no more evidence of error...

If autoit.exe "croaks and pops an error window" it is because of something in your code, so yes you as the one writing the code have to handle it. What other language do you know that automatically handles every possible error? AutoIt doesn't just randomly crash; if you cannot come up with an example in which this "croaking" occurs, how can you expect anyone to assist?

You mean something like this?

If yes, then there is a way to write this to a file for debugging.

@water you are correct, but I would not call that "the AutoIt Engine croaking" personally; it would still be something that should be accounted for in the code.

Correct :)
I once had the need to write such messages to a file because my script (which was far from being perfect) was run on a server. When the message popped up the script simply hung
and I had no idea what caused the problem.
So writing the error message to a file greatly helped to pin down the cause. I then changed the code to handle the problem for the future.
