#3547 closed Feature Request (Completed)

@ErrorStdOut or $ErrorStdOut for /ErrorStdOut

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


to make a reserved variable, as is in the case of $CmdLineRaw, or a macro, to hold the output from "AutoIt Error", to be held in a similar variable, let's say $ErrorStdOut, to be available at OnAutoItExitRegister(), just as @exitMethod is there, maybe @ErrorStdOut or $ErrorStdOut can be available.

Replying to mLipok:

Just as a reference/releated request:

Just as a reference, yes. Just in case, I'll make an argument
( I'd really like this request implemented )

what he asked for is nonsense in my view. OnAutoitExit() runs regardless.

what he asked for is already there. OK Exit 0, not OK Exit 1, that is the returned errorlevel
We can use the rest of the Exit from 2 upwards for our own expected errors.
@ExitCode should reflect that.
@ExitMethod is as it should be.

Therefore, these other 2 requests are not related to this one, other than is OnAutoitExit()
I hope that the request for an @ErrorStdOut is considered.

...and maybe a hash tag and/or Opt() for the suppression of the error GUI popup, as it would make sense, given the opportunity for error to be handled, if the given hash or Opt() is purposely declared in the script.
Just as after time a #NoTrayIcon was accepted as OK to have.

comment:6 Changed 2 years ago by argumentum

Found a topic in the forums where the MsgBox is intercepted, giving the opportunity to handle this from within the script.

Opt("OnExitCode", 1)
I've never seen it on any version that I can remember.

comment:8 Changed 5 weeks ago by Jpm

In fact the Opt() is Opt("SetExitCode", 1) not documented in the Help, just included in the Web doc.

comment:10 Changed 5 weeks ago by Jpm

I fixed the doc for "SetExitCode" option and I introduce 2 Functions to format th @ExitCode and the @ExitLethod
The best I can do without having Jon change the AutoIt code


comment:11 Changed 4 weeks ago by argumentum

lol, thanks. I should have read more carefully before coding this:

Execute('Opt("SetExitCode", 1)') ; done within an Execute() until AU3Check.exe update in v3.3.15.4

	For $n = 1 To 100
		ToolTip('..crashing in ' & $a[$n], 50, 50, "CrashTest")
		ConsoleWrite('..crashing in ' & $a[$n] & @CRLF)
EndFunc   ;==>main
Func __OnAutoItExit()
	Local $sExitMethod
	Switch @exitMethod
		Case 0
			$sExitMethod = "closed by natural closing."

			$sExitMethod = "closed by Exit function."

You are really attentive. Thanks Jpm.

...and now that I think of it, the @ScriptLineNumber is not part of the information available on the OnAutoItExitRegister() function. =(
