How can I run vim-rooter's function FindRootDirectory() instead of /vagrant/my_project? I have tried multiple variations like:

set makeprg=FindRootDirectory().'/app/Console/cake test '.expand('%:p')
set makeprg=FindRootDirectory()."/app/Console/cake" test %:p

+++UPDATE+++

let &makeprg=FindRootDirectory()."/app/Console/cake test %:p" does work, but I'm also getting a black screen instead of my previous opened file. Do you know how can I get only results in the bottom?

And I'm getting this errors after running the vim command:

E117: 未知の関数です(Unknown function): FindRootDirectory
E15: 無効な式です(Invalid expression): FindRootDirectory()."/app/Console/cake test %:p"

+++UPDATE+++

Was able to solve it by:

autocmd VimEnter * let &makeprg=FindRootDirectory()."/app/Console/cake test %:p"

    You seem to have a lot of problems with something called "QuickRun". Whatever it is, don't you think you should read that thing's documentation and/or use its issue tracker? – romainl Feb 16 '16 at 12:04
  • @romainl thank you. I read it, but didn't get it ^^ – whitesiroi Feb 17 '16 at 2:45

Use :let &makeprg instead of :set. The latter expects an un-quoted string.

  • If I understood it right, this will have to be done each time OP switches to something with a different root directory, i.e, there's no way to evaluate what the root directory is when :make is called. – muru Feb 16 '16 at 18:13
  • @Luc Hermitte Thank you very much. let &makeprg=FindRootDirectory()."/app/Console/cake test %:p" does work, but I'm also getting a black screen instead of my previous opened file. Do you know how can I get only results in the bottom? I attach screenshot and update my question. Thank you. – whitesiroi Feb 17 '16 at 2:00
  • @muru I have tried with several projects and :silent! make | copen does work great. – whitesiroi Feb 17 '16 at 2:36
  • Looks like you need to source the plugin where this function is defined before calling it. – Luc Hermitte Feb 17 '16 at 8:55
