#1995 closed Bug (Wont Fix)

Different results on x86 and x64

Reported by: UEZ Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


When I run these lines

MsgBox(0,"", StringMid(StringFormat("%-20.*s", ""),1 , 20))

the result is different to this

MsgBox(0,"", StringMid(StringFormat("%-20.*s", ""),1 , 20))

Should the result not the same?

In fact AutoIt does really support .* precision.
Your example is wrong as an extra parameter defining the precision will be needed before the string to defined the precision

MsgBox(0,"", StringMid(StringFormat("%-20.*s", 10, ""),1 , 20))

but as I say Autoit will not support this format
So fix must be done to accept or reject such precision definition

Nothing need fixed. This is not a bug.
The user has invalid syntax of a conversion specification therefore triggering undefined behavior.
All we should do is document that bad syntax causes undefined behavior. When that's done this ticked can be closed.
