MBS( "IsError" )




Returns 1 or 0.


Checks whether last plugin function returned error.
Returns 1 if last function returned an error.
Or returns 0 if no error happened.
This makes it easier to detect if the result text is an error message vs. a real result.


Cause an error and handle it:

Set Variable [ $r; Value:MBS( "ZipFile.Open"; "" ) ]
If [ MBS("IsError") ]
    Show Custom Dialog [ Title: "Error"; Message: $r; Buttons: "OK”, "Abbrechen” ]
    Exit Script [ ]
End If
