in ahk_h v1 you will need exe.ahkFunction(""test"",var """")

Code: Select all

thread:=AhkThread("
(
sleep 5000 
test:= var*3
MsgBox test
exe:=AhkExported()
exe.ahkFunction("test",var "")
)")
thread.ahkassign("var","2") 
While(thread.ahkgetvar("test") =="")
{
   Sleep 1000
}
MsgBox thread.ahkgetvar("test") 

test(var)
{
Return 1
}

Yes, main exe has no variable var1:

Code: Select all

var1:="this is a test"
thread:=AhkThread("
(

Sleep 500
exe:=AhkExported()
exe.ahkFunction("test",var,var1)
MsgBox exe.ahkgetvar("var1") ;retun null
)")
thread.ahkassign("var","2") 
While thread.ahkReady()
   Sleep 100

test(var,ByRef var1)
{
MsgBox var
var1:=var*3
MsgBox var1
Return 1
}

Function is local, you can only get global variables.
Also by the time you try to get the variable, function already exited and variables were cleared!
