#2443 assigned Feature Request

Name of nested structs

Reported by: GtaSpider Owned by: Jpm
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: nested structs Cc:



as mentioned in this topic, i would realy like to see the ability to name nested structs.

f.e. $tagMINMAXINFO: consists of five POINT ($tagPOINT) structs. And these structs consits of two LONG variables. If you now could name these nested structs you could set them like on the example below. I don't know what would be better, maybe it would be smarter to set the name of the structure after the ENDSTRUCT keyword so you could use them like these

$tagMINMAXINFO = $tagPOINT&" ptReserved; "&$tagPOINT&" ptMaxSize; [...]"

And the example:

#include <StructureConstants.au3>

#cs - Example 1
	Global Const $tagMINMAXINFO = "struct ptReserved;long X;long Y;endstruct;" & _
	"struct ptMaxSize;long X;long Y;endstruct;" & _
	"struct ptMaxPosition;long X;long Y;endstruct;" & _
	"struct ptMinTrackSize;long X;long Y;endstruct;" & _
	"struct ptMaxTrackSize;long X;long Y;endstruct;"
#ce - Example 1

#region - Example 2, may the smarter option
Global Const $tagMINMAXINFO = $tagPOINT & " ptReserved;" & _
		$tagPOINT & " ptMaxSize;" & _
		$tagPOINT & " ptMaxPosition;" & _
		$tagPOINT & " ptMinTrackSize;" & _
		$tagPOINT & " ptMaxTrackSize;"
#endregion - Example 2, may the smarter option

$tMINMAXINFO = DllStructCreate($tagMINMAXINFO)
;should be
$tMINMAXINFO.ptReserved.X = 12
ConsoleWrite('$tMINMAXINFO.ptReserved.X = ' & $tMINMAXINFO.ptReserved.X & @LF);empty (error)
;is actually
ConsoleWrite('$tMINMAXINFO.X = ' & $tMINMAXINFO.X & @LF);returns 12, but on which X?
;this works (first element: ptReserved.X)
ConsoleWrite('DllStructGetData($tMINMAXINFO,1,1) = ' & DllStructGetData($tMINMAXINFO, 1) & @LF);Returns 12
;the other X's are untouched
ConsoleWrite('DllStructGetData($tMINMAXINFO,3) = ' & DllStructGetData($tMINMAXINFO, 3) & @LF);Returns 0
;this works
DllStructSetData($tMINMAXINFO, 3, 5)
ConsoleWrite('DllStructGetData($tMINMAXINFO,3) = ' & DllStructGetData($tMINMAXINFO, 3) & @LF);Returns 5

Thanks in Advance,
your Spider.
p.s. thank you very much for your effort!

  • Owner set to Jpm
  • Status changed from new to assigned

introduce new types tag/endtag to be use in DllStructCreate()
DllStruct*Data can be replace by $tStruct.tag.element
DllStructGetPtr by $tStruct.tag.element.Ptr()
