Pause Script

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am looking for a way to pause my script using hotkeyset. This is what I have come up with so far and was wondering if there was a better method and if this would even work. I do not have access to autoit at this computer to test, but I will test it tomorrow when I come home.

Hotkeyset("{Pause}", "Pause")
$paused = 0

While $paused = 0 
  ;main script in here
WEnd

Func Pause()
   $paused = 1
EndFunc

Straight out of help:

Global $Paused
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "TogglePause")

;;;; Body of program would go here;;;;
While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd
;;;;;;;;

Func TogglePause()
    $Paused = NOT $Paused
    While $Paused
        sleep(100)
        ToolTip('Script is "Paused"',0,0)
    WEnd
    ToolTip("")
EndFunc

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
