Prototypes and/or Externs

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

Does the concept of prototyping functions or declaring external variables exist in AutoIt?

I have a library file that contains a load of constants. The test scripts then include this constants file and uses the variables within it however when doing a syntax check there are always warnings...

"possibly used before declaration"

Is there a way to remove these warnings through the code? In C I would declare an external variables in the current file, a kind of prototype so the current file knows that this variable is in fact declared and ready to use. Any suggestions? How is this normally taken care of in AutoIt()?

Thanks,

Adam

Look up #include in the help file. The syntax checker in the full version of SciTE4AU3 is fully aware of included files and will not give you the false warnings.

Is the file containing the constants an *.au3 file? If it is then #include it at the top of the script.

If not then what is the file type and how are you declaring those constants in your script?

My mistake... they are au3 files however the specific constants were not declared afterall. ( I did not write the code, only trying to validate it. The "developers" checked in a load of files yesterday and when doing a syntax check I noticed all these warnings and assumed that was the problem, they must have removed some).

I think I'll have to have a little word with them...

Sorry, thanks for the info.
