I pray and call out time and again hoping in tears that there will be a miracle: in next version, autoit will support multithreading!

I can relate but it's not going to happen, get over it, work around it or move on!

As multithreaded programming technology has advantages in exploiting parallelism and improving system performance, it has been quickly developed in recent years and widely used day by day.

It's thoughtless of autoit not to support multithreading!

I have read FAQ about multithreading long time ago.
But I will wish for! For using au3 period of time, I actual feel to demand this funtionality

Hmm,

I actual feel to demand this funtionality

.. free language, non paid people who give you this language to use as you see fit and ask nothing of you..
I think you should choose your words more carefully.
I don't think your whining wishes should really be aired in the General Help section.
I'll say no more and move on!

You didnt read well, this thread is the evidence...
An extract.

There are several recurring requests for features that will most likely never be done in AutoIt. This list mentions some of those and why they will not be implemented. Please do not create threads asking for these features, they've been beaten to death and no further good can come from re-hashing the same points over and over.

Quick list of features:

* Multi-threading
* Object-Oriented syntax
* AutoIt for [Mac, Linux, Windows CE]
* Modularized compilation/variable sized compiled files
* FileInstall() accepting variables for the source
* New Opt()/AutoItSetOption() flags

Detailed list with explanations why certain features will not be done:

Multi-threading: It's too late to do this now. The changes required to AutoIt are too great. AutoIt was never intended to be multi-threaded. Writing a multi-threaded application requires an entirely different mindset when writing a program. We did not start with that mindset and trying to retrofit something as significant as multi-threading onto the existing code base is not worth the time or effort. It would be far more beneficial to re-write AutoIt and add in multi-threading that way. That, however, is not planned and is a massive undertaking.

So... why knowing this you create a thread about multithreading?
I don`t like these kind of threads, because the rule is too clear and you didn`t respect it.

The last time you posted this wasn't enough to tell us how you feel about multi-threading? You really felt the need to post the same whine all over again 5 months later?

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/126725-when-will-autoit-realize-real-multithreading

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to an XP machine, and I'm not going to.

 

Give a programmer the correct code and he can do his work for a day. Teach a programmer to debug and he can do his work for a lifetime - by Chirag Gude

 

How to ask questions the smart way!

 

Back up and restore Windows user files _Array.au3 - Modified array functions that include support for 2D arrays.ColorChooser - An add-on for SciTE that pops up a color dialog so you can select and paste a color code into a script.
Customizable Splashscreen GUI w/Progress Bar - Create a custom "splash screen" GUI with a progress bar and custom label.
_FileGetProperty - Retrieve the properties of a file SciTE Toolbar - A toolbar demo for use with the SciTE editorGUIRegisterMsg demo - Demo script to show how to use the Windows messages to interact with controls and your GUI.
GUIToolTip UDF Demo - Demo script to show how to use the GUIToolTip UDF to create and use customized tooltips. Latin Square password generator

 

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Anyway this must be in the chat section because nobody can help you with this, only opinions.

Multithreading is at the top of the NOT todo list so yea stop. :mellow:

I am shocked that you miss it especially now, because more and more I think AutoIt does not need it. If you honestly think you lack the skills to come up with a solution without it, then make a multithreaded DLL then call it from AutoIt, and with Ward's Dll from memory UDF you can even end up with standalone AutoIt code. :)

I have made quite a few private AutoIt scripts using multithreaded DLLs and they work marvelously. Anyone still crying for multithreading must be crazy. :)

Ward also made a UDF around libtcc so now you don't even need to compile the DLLs. :party:

And yes, I am a fan of Ward's UDFs :)

It's a big JOKE that 'AutoIt does not need it'!
“make a multithreaded DLL then call it from AutoIt” --- You meant to use other language make DLL. This is your reason for NOT needing? why not AUTOIT do it itself?
Those so-called skills for simulating multithreading are not straightforward down-to-earth approach to a problem
