Error Handling

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

I'm looking for a way to trap an erro in the following code:

$WshNetwork = ObjCreate("WScript.Network")
 $PrinterPath = $Server & GUICtrlRead($cmbPrinters)

 ; Add network printer

If the $cmbPrinters does not contain a valid printer, I need an error message to say so.

Any ideas?

Perhaps this untested use of WMI may validate the printers name?

Func _PrinterNameCheck($sPrinterName, $strComputer = ".")
    ; Function: Resolve Printer name
    Local $objPrinter
    Local $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & $strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
    Local $colInstalledPrinters =  $objWMIService.ExecQuery ("Select * from Win32_Printer")
    ; Loop through collection
    For $objPrinter in $colInstalledPrinters
        If $sPrinterName = $objPrinter.Name Then
            Return True

Also, see the example in ObjEvent for implementing a COM error handler. There is also a discussion of it in the general Obj/Com section of the helpfile.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
