Calling GUICtrlSetOnEvent with a function with arguments as an argument

5 posts in this topic

The AutoiIt intrepreter gives me an "Unknown function name" for the following function call:

GUICtrlSetOnEvent($GUI_Id, "function($argument)")

given the follow defined function:

Func function($param)

  MsgBox(0, "", "Param equals: " & $param)

EndFunc

Can someone help me understand why this is not an acceptable practice or have I just missed some formatting detail?

When you use GUICtrlSetOnEvent only use the function name as it shows in the help.

GUICtrlSetOnEvent ( controlID, "function" )

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

Thanks. Is there any way to provide the called function with parameters to work with or do I have to use Global scope for the variable(s) to be used within the function?

Either that or use GuiGetMsg and in the switch or select case you can call functions with params.

Depends what parameters you want. You can have a function called with parameters from an onevent function like this

GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "SomeFn")

Func SomeFn()

$par1 = blahblah

$par2 = ....

anotherfunction($par1,$par2)

endfunc
