Script is hanging "script paused'

Recommended Posts

Before I asked my questions I reviewed the FAQ posted in this forum, checked the wiki, listened to some 403forbidden403 tutorials, and checked the online documentation. It seems somewhat complex to get sendkeys just to open 2 files on my desktop. When I run the script below it opens a Microsoft application and its corresponding file but fails to open firefox. Thanks for any help. My tactic was to use keyboard short cuts with the "scriptwriter" to create my script using the sendkey type of function.

I copied this data from Scite:

Send("{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}")

WinWait("Program Manager","")

If Not WinActive("Program Manager","") Then WinActivate("Program Manager","")

WinWaitActive("Program Manager","")

Send("2{ENTER}")

WinWait("Todo Main - Microsoft Office OneNote","")

If Not WinActive("Todo Main - Microsoft Office OneNote","") Then WinActivate("Todo Main - Microsoft Office OneNote","")

WinWaitActive("Todo Main - Microsoft Office OneNote","")

Send("{LWINDOWN}d{LWINUP}")

WinWait("classname=WorkerW","")

If Not WinActive("classname=WorkerW","") Then WinActivate("classname=WorkerW","")

WinWaitActive("classname=WorkerW","")

Send("{LWINDOWN}{LWINUP}")

WinWait("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","")

If Not WinActive("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","") Then WinActivate("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","")

WinWaitActive("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","")

Send("{ESC}{SHIFTDOWN}{TAB}{SHIFTUP}")

WinWait("classname=WorkerW","")

If Not WinActive("classname=WorkerW","") Then WinActivate("classname=WorkerW","")

WinWaitActive("classname=WorkerW","")

Send("3{ENTER}")

WinWait("Keyboard shortcuts - Mozilla Firefox","")

If Not WinActive("Keyboard shortcuts - Mozilla Firefox","") Then WinActivate("Keyboard shortcuts - Mozilla Firefox","")

WinWaitActive("Keyboard shortcuts - Mozilla Firefox","")

Send("")

THIS is not satisfactory either as it doesn't open the specific file even though it does open both applications.

run('C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe')

run('C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\onenote.exe')

Nothing of that makes any sense.

Anyway:

Run(@SystemDir & '\mspaint.exe "' & @DesktopDir & '\Photo_031509_001.jpg"')
ShellExecute(@DesktopDir & '\blabla.txt')

Thanks, that worked well for me. I appreciate you helping out a new person where not many were interested in responding. I owe you one.

As far as how I did it.

I did what I was told. I used the scriptwriter or "AU3Record 3.1" trying to record the script and all the other gobblde gook came out. It there any good tutorials on using the recorder?

Well this works for now:

run('C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe')

Run(@SystemDir & '\onenote.exe "' & @DesktopDir & '\2todo.one"')

ShellExecute(@DesktopDir & '\2todo.one')

You're still not making any sense.

The recorder doesn't need any tutorial. It records what you do, nothing more, nothing less.

And why are you running "2todo.one" 2 times?

It may just be how the post is formatted, but the links you posted which are "bad",

www.­autoitscript.­com/­autoit3/­docs
www.­autoitscript.­com/­autoit3

, have an invisible character (0xAD) after each period and slash....

If I remove the character, the links work fine.

www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs

www.autoitscript.com/autoit3

The original pages and posts do not seem to have this issue... so it may be something interfering on your end.

Note: you can see the character if you copy his text into notepad and change the font to Terminal...

ALSO their is a bad link on the home page when you click "online documentation"

You mean clicking on this link? Online Documentation

From this page? AutoIt v3

Works for me fine.
