pdf.GetLastError on MorphOS

Post by jPV »

pdf.GetLastError state doesn't seem to reset on MorphOS... if you had a fail, but then open successfully, pdf.GetLastError still shows a fail.

Code: Select all

@REQUIRE "polybios", {Version=1, Revision=1}
; Trying to open a non-existent pdf:
ExitOnError(False)
pdf.OpenDocument(1, "PDFReference.pdf.notfound")
ExitOnError(True)
t=pdf.GetLastError()
DebugPrint(t)
; Open an existing pdf:
ExitOnError(False)
pdf.OpenDocument(1, "PDFReference.pdf")
ExitOnError(True)
t=pdf.GetLastError()
DebugPrint(t) 
On MorphOS you get:
2
2

While on Windows you get:
2
0

Hmm, well, actually the behaviour on MorphOS is the one that should be the normal one. You must only call pdf.GetLastError() if pdf.OpenDocument() actually failed so I'll have to examine why the error state is reset on Windows because that normally shouldn't happen, although it might be quite common sensical to do so...

Why there is #PDFERR_SUCCESS (No error occurred.) then?

Hi jpv

What if you write pdf.GetLastError() immediately after pdf.OpenDocument()?

Code: Select all

ExitOnError(False)
pdf.OpenDocument(1, "PDFReference.pdf.notfound")
t=pdf.GetLastError()
ExitOnError(True)
DebugPrint(t)

Didn't make any difference.

Okay, I've adapted this now to be more consistent. pdf.GetLastError() will return 0 on success now.

Code: Select all

- Fix: pdf.GetLastError() will now return #PDFERR_SUCCESS (0) in case pdf.OpenDocument() succeeded
