#530 closed Bug (No Bug)

HotKeySet ignores optional parameters

Reported by: danerjones@… Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Other Severity: None
Keywords: HotKeySet, 457, optional parameter Cc:


After executing this function:

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "QuitApp")

Func QuitApp($Quick = False)
	If $Quick Then

The following Error was returned.

>Running:(\Program Files\AutoIt3\autoit3.exe "C:\Script.au3"    
C:\Script.au3 (457) : ==> Variable used without being declared.:
If $Quick Then

It appears that when {ESC} is pressed, the optional parameter is not properly defined causing the error.

This issue only occurs when the function is triggered from HotKeySet and an optional parameter is declared.

I have rewritten the function to work around the issue for the time being.

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "QuitApp")

Func QuitApp($Quick = False)
	If IsDeclared("Quick") Then 
		If $Quick Then Exit

Replying to Valik:

This is not a bug.

Fair enough :o)

I would like to request the documentation for the "HotKeySet" function be modified to better clarify this as it doesn't implicitly state optional parameters will also be treated as if undefined when the target function is called from "HotKeySet"

feels like a bug to me, I just ran into this problem.

Still not a bug, read the help file. HotKeySet functions can NOT have parameters.

It would be nice feature request I presume.
