Make macro beep on error and continue

Post by pschroeter » 2019 Jun 13, 22:33

I figured out ERRORSTOP 0 makes a macro not hang up on an error. Is there a way to make a macro exit AND beep to let me know the error has happened?

I have the following macro that just swaps the panes in two pane view.

ERRORSTOP 0
command 32869 This replaces a Menuhack command I no longer need, thank you.

Since my open Dual button and Swap Pane buttons look similar, it kind of lets me know I pushed the wrong button if I meant to push the Dual button.

It might be nice if I could write something like
ERRORSTOP 0 BEEP
With BEEP being an optional argument.

when you turn off errors, you are supposed to check for errors yourself after each command that is uncertain. E.g after COMMAND you can put

Code: Select all

ERRORSTOP 0
 command xxx
JUMPOK no_error
message error!
LABEL no_error
so in case of error you would see an error message
