This function will return the correct error message for microsoft error codes 0-499 or blank if it doesn't have a error message for the number given.

It's meant to be used in conjunction with the "GetLastError" dllcall.

If anyone wants them I can build the same type of function for any of the other error ranges (500-15999) listed here: <!-- m -->http://msdn.microsof... ... p/ms681381<!-- m -->

Before you break something, typing up 16000 error msgs...:shock:...let me inform you of the FormatMessage() WinAPI function. If used with the FORMAT_MESSAGE_FROM_SYSTEM flag, it will get the error msg for any GetLastError() number.

I've actually planned on writing this up, but I haven't yet.

Also, I think someone else on the forum might've already written a function using this method...
Function to retreive string of "A_LastError" - Thalon's Post
Function to retreive string of "A_LastError" - majkinetor's Post
Useful forum links: New content since: Last visitPast weekPast 2 weeks (links will show YOUR posts, not mine)

OMFG, the AutoHotkey forum is IP.board now (yuck!)...I may not be able to continue coming here (& I love AutoHotkey)...I liked phpBB, but not this...ugh...

I may not reply to any topics (specifically ones I was previously involved in), mostly cuz I can't find the ones I replied to, to continue helping, but also just cuz I can't stand the new forum...phpBB was soo perfect. This is 100% the opposite of "perfect".

I also semi-plan to start my own, phpBB-based AutoHotkey forum (or take over the old one, if he'll let me)
PM me if you're interested in a new phpBB-based forum (I need to know if anyone would use it)
How (or why) did they create the Neil Armstrong memorial site (neilarmstronginfo.com) BEFORE he died?

Interesting :)

I didn't write up the function myself :p I just wrote a parser to parse the MSDN page and generate the function for me.
