I'm missing something re functions or


Recommended Posts

Hi Gurus of Help and Advice!

I have been humiliated :"> too many times when I think I might have found a bug to only find out that I really did not understand some syntax subtlety , so I am not going to call this one a bug, even though it has been bugging me like crazy.

Please refer to the simplified code below. I stumbled across this when I was commenting out blocks of code tring to pinpoint the syntax error.

If I run Scite syntax check, it tells me that the function SendAlert is not defined. Now, move the comment block

#cs

dummy stuff

#ce

to directly before the SendAlert function call instead of directly after it, and there is no error reported by Scite.

NOTE: if you just put in a simply comment like ";dummy stuff" instead of #cs/dummy stuff/#ce combination before the function call, you still get the syntax error.

I am at a loss. Took me hours to narrow it down this far. I am a bit uncomfortable with my understanding of dimensioning inside functions, so maybe I am doing something wrong inside SendAlert, but I do not see how that could cause this strange syntax error. But I have used this function in other code, so that doesn't seem likely.

Bottom line:

what am I doing wrong that moving the dummy comment block fixes?

Best Regards

Larry,

It seems that you're using an old version of Au3check created by Tylo (thanks Tylo!) that came with the Scite installer. I had Au3check v1.00 and was able to recreate your error. I upgraded to latest version of Au3check to v1.12, and the error went away. You can download the latest version of Au3check from here:

Or you can download the latest version of Scite installer created by JdeB (thanks JdeB!) from here:

Hope this helps!
