Exiting a while loop

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone

I am trying to click 2 specific places on a web page, I am using the google feeling lucky button as my test, if okbutton pressed perform clicks UNTIL cancel button is pressed, if I launch the tool and click cancel, it closes, perfect, if I hit yes then try to cancel it doesn't cancel as the loop has started already, I know about exitloop but cant get it to recognise the cancel button after the loop has started, any ideas?

Heres my code

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

GUICreate("Update tool", 260, 100)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Do you want to start the updating?", 30, 10)
$okbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Yes", 70, 50, 60)
$cancelbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 140, 50, 60)

    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Case $msg = $cancelbutton
        Case $msg = $okbutton
        while 1
        MouseClick("left", 1000, 356)
        MouseClick("left", 550, 220)    

If someone could correct my code (or show a better way) it would be much appreciated, if there's a quicker way to do what I want please say so.

A nearly same question was dropped a few days ago.

You need the nested loop to check for a certain value and then let it in your case exit that loop.

While 1
 Get X value
 Get Y value

  If X <> value1 Then
    While x <> value1
      ...do something...
      Get X value again

    While y <> value2
      ...do (maybe) something (else)...
      Get Y value again
      ...perhaps do something else if both vars are OK

If you learn from It, it's not a mistake
