  • linking scripts together

    Hi

    I was wondering if it is possible to link script files together? I have several script files that deal with different aspects but some share common functionality eg I have a function that writes back to an sql database and I need that in several script files. at the moment I have the same function copied in the different scripts but it would be great if I could just have it one place and reference t

    is this possible somehow?

    Sure, use the hs.runscriptfunc command i.e.

    'one of your scripts
    Dim Result As String = hs.runscriptfunc("Database.vb","mydatabasefunc","<send something to your function here>",True, False)

    ------- Database.vb------
    Function mydatabasefunc(ByVal Data As String) As String
    ' Your code
    Return <whatever>
    End Function
    -------------------------

        You should also consider combining these scripts into a single script with multiple functions (instead of 'Main'). Include the common code as a SUB within the script and call it from each of your functions. You can have an event call each entry point as appropriate. Makes understanding and maintenance of the script (was scripts) easier.

          Hi. Yes I already do that. The trouble is I have say 30 different functions for controlling my av receiver in one script then ihave all the capi functions setup then all of my db functions. I wanted the ability to cross call them. Thanks

            You could put common code into a single file and include that in any script that uses it by referencing that file. That method or approach worked back to HS1

              That was kind of what I was thinking to start with. Could you provide an example of how that would work? Eg code example
