#2035 closed Bug (No Bug)

DllCall() - undocumented datatype "bool"

Reported by: Zedna Owned by:
Milestone: Component: Documentation
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


In Helpfile for DllCall() there is not mentioned "bool" type for Valid Autoit Types. So oficially AutoIt Type "int" should be used for WINDOWS API Type "bool".

But I noticed in some UDFs there is used undocumented "bool" type directly and it works fine.
So probaly only Helpfile should be corrected accordingly.


Func _GUICtrlMenu_AppendMenu($hMenu, $iFlags, $iNewItem, $pNewItem)
	Local $aResult = DllCall("User32.dll", "bool", "AppendMenuW", "handle", $hMenu, "uint", $iFlags, "uint_ptr", $iNewItem, $sType, $pNewItem)
EndFunc   ;==>_GUICtrlMenu_AppendMenu

In older helpfile there is no BOOL/BOOLEAN.
In latest beta it's documented OK.
