@ScriptName does not use #include file

Recommended Posts

@ScriptName and @ScriptFullPath is not correct when referenced within an #include file. @ScriptLineNumber is correct in those cases and TrayIconDebug shows the correct file name.  Why aren't the others correct? Thanks!

For example, running "main.au3" with #include <common.au3"> ... main.au3 calls a function within common.au3. That function includes a debug statement that logs @ScriptName as "main.au3" instead of "common.au3". @ScriptLineNumber is logged as the correct line number within common.au3. And if script is paused at that point, the TrayIconDebug popup shows correct file name. Why doesn't @ScriptName have access to correct file name displayed in TrayIconDebug?

it'd be a problem otherwise. When the script runs, it's all added together ( in AutoIt ) so the running script is the name and full path.
If you run from SciTE it'll tell you what part/script is faulty/failed but once compiled you'd go to the script line number.
In the AutoIt3Wrapper there are things you can do to have the pre-compiled script that will match the compiled script to the line number.

I hope this helps. Otherwise, explain the limitation in a running code example to take it from there :)

Compiled ? Unclompiled ?

If you want to have this in compiled then try to use:

My example above was in context of running an uncompiled script, using _DebugOut(@ScriptName&": "&@ScriptLineNumber) at line# 94 within common.au3

It produces a log statement like this:

    main.au3: 94

The line number is correct, but not the file name. I expect:

    common.au3: 94

If I put a pause right after the debug statement, i.e. "While True Sleep (100) WEnd" the AutoIt TrayIconDebug tooltip has correct file name for that paused position in script. I would expect @ScriptName or some other macro could provide same thing:


The Au3Stripper tip for compilation is helpful, thanks. Running main.exe, I get:

    main.exe: common:94/19557

... or if running main_stripped.au3:

    main_stripped.au3: common:94/19557

But this seems like an inefficient extra steps that must be done with every change to original files.

Looks indeed like an issue after making 2 simple replicator scripts:


; Script test.au3
#include "test2.au3"
ConsoleWrite('@@> Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : @ScriptName= ' & @ScriptName & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console
ConsoleWrite('@@> Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : @ScriptName= ' & @ScriptName & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console


; Script test2.au3
Func test()
    ConsoleWrite('@@- Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : @ScriptName= ' & @ScriptName & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console
    ConsoleWrite('@@- Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : @ScriptName= ' & @ScriptName & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console
EndFunc   ;==>test

Ticket #3766 closed Feature Request (Duplicate)
@IncludeScriptFullPath and @IncludeScriptName

Since this is acknowledged, maybe the this ticket can serve as a solution to keep the prior scripts running. Otherwise, if fixed, would be a script breaker.
Keeping the current behavior as is and adding the fix as @IncludeScriptFullPath and @IncludeScriptName would save a world of trouble.

If the behavior is revised and fix, as it has been this way since 3.2.x.x as far as I tested. Don't know if is worth fixing.

Just an idea.
