Eventlog.au3 in Beta

Reported by: twillster Owned by: Jpm
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: eventlog beta description Cc:


EventLog.au3 in Beta does not read the event log description correctly. It returns multiples of 0. Sometimes none, sometimes 1 or 2 and then occasionally more. I have tested between Beta and and seems to do okay with the description (though not always complete). Not sure where the problem is aside from that but I am pretty sure it's located somewhere in the DecodeDesc function.

I attached the code that I am seeing that reproduces it. It was some stuff from the forums that I found to test with.

Confirmed issue with simplified reproducer (only show last 10 records):

#include <EventLog.au3>

Global $box = @ComputerName
Global $hEventLog = _EventLog__Open($box, "System")
Global $iCnt = _EventLog__Count($hEventLog)
Global $iOldest = _EventLog__Oldest($hEventLog)
Global $aEvent

ConsoleWrite(@LF & "; Show newest 10 records" & @LF)
$aEvent = _EventLog__Read($hEventLog, False, True, $iCnt + $iOldest - 11) ; Set pointer to desired record
For $i = $iCnt + $iOldest - 10 To $iCnt + $iOldest - 1
	$aEvent = _EventLog__Read($hEventLog, True)
	For $j = 0 To 14
		ConsoleWrite($i & ": [" & $j & "] = " & $aEvent[$j] & @CRLF)


Missing fields in Beta (they are present in Prod) are: [10] Event Source, [11] Computer name, and [13] Description
