#2237 closed Bug (No Bug)

SetError/Extended returns 1 if return value is omitted

Reported by: MrCreatoR <mscreator@…> Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: SetError, SetExtended, Return Cc:


Help file states:

Return Value

By default, none, however, if the optional return value argument is passed, then the function will return that value.

But it's not true, SetError/SetExtended returns 1:

ConsoleWrite(Test() & @LF)

Func Test()
	Return SetError(1)

I don't think you understand what "none" means. It DOES NOT mean 0, otherwise it would have stated as much.

Replying to Valik:

It DOES NOT mean 0

But it also does not mean 1, right? :)

It means don't fucking use the return value because it's not defined.
