Small update available here Fix missed #Include <WinAPISysWin.au3>

DEMO VIDEO DBUG demo Update 4, files are changed! 28-jan-2010 - new buttons for debugging and managing the expressions list (add, delete, save, restore) - button images - pause button - mouse over v

Hi all! After long time of silence in this topic I'm put my customized version of original Herons DBUG.  Added: - sorting in variables list by any column and drag in any order. - by default 1D and 2D

Posted Images


small bug.

For reproduce:

  1. Use Test_2.au3
  2. Run script
  3. Press F5 for start execution
  4. Press F4 for pause
  5. Press F5 for continue - script start and pause again(!)

When use a button for same operations in _DBUG GUI instead of hotkeys script continue to execute normally.

Look like as a problem with a focusing of pause button.


Problem is here (line 1382)

Func DBGbtnBreak()
    GUICtrlSendMsg($DBGbtnBreak, $BM_CLICK, 0, 0)

After commenting line 1382 it is work as need.

  • Fixed detected the errors.



@asdf8 great, thank you!

Suggestion to add check for  buttons with hotkeys before sending BM_CLICK Msg. It will exclude a casual pressing hotkeys. For example at the moment when you press F4 twice during script running you will need to press  F5 twice to continue.

As an example

Func DBG_btnBreak()
    If GUICtrlGetState($DBG_btnBreak) = $GUI_SHOW+$GUI_ENABLE Then
        GUICtrlSendMsg($DBG_btnBreak, $BM_CLICK, 0, 0)
