This code returns me an error code number 1 while it works well by default if I don’t set the error handling! is this a bug or is there really an error somewhere?
Shell1.Execute ("/usr/sbin/spctl --status")
If Shell1.ErrorCode = 0 Then
ud = Shell1.ReadAll
MsgBox("An Error " + Shell1.ErrorCode.ToString +" has occurred !")
Best practice is to store the error code into a variable and use the variable everywhere. It’s fairly possible the ErrorCode is a computed property and resets itself or changes each time you access it.
Does this make a difference in your case?
No, this is the only command that returns an error code among a dozen Shell commands that follow each other… and it’s still the same error code number 1.
I don’t know. It works well on my side.
FWIW: error code 1 won’t tell you much, as these binaries often return 0 (no error) or 1 (any error).
If you just run
spctl --status from the Terminal, do you get any error?
No error from the Terminal.
use ExitCode instead of ErrorCode
(ExitCode) Already tried and no effect.
I succeeded by putting it in 1st position and the other Shell.Execute behind, and there it works! (probably a conflict)
try this in a method or so.
make sure you use what xojo advices you to use.
Result As String is what you need to get the entire result when mode is Synchronous
it works well with your code. Even with ReadAll.
