A Flow Control Question . . .

Recommended Posts

Hello folks!

I have a rather difficult situation on my hands.

Since v.3 does not seem to be multithreaded and does not allow one to create or instantiate objects, how is one supposed to efficiently control the logic of complex programmatic flows? It almost seems as if we're somewhere between procedural and OO; in a no-man's land without an actual rudder to steer with.

Can someone tell me how to test a condition, execute one of a selection of large codeblocks based upon said condition, and continue simultaneously testing that condition for a change to select another codeblock on the fly, without

A. having recourse to a multithreaded language or OO substrate, and/or

B. being able to explicitly control program flows procedurally


Looking as if v.3 is more {B} than {A}, one might think that there'd be some relief in the syntax somewhere to support such an approach. However, there doesn't seem to be any.

What am I not seeing here, folks? Is there an elephant in the room that I'm missing?


Thanks for the help.

The elephant is hiding in the developer forum. Look for the topis 3.1.1++ for the beta version with COM and Event support.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Thanx, Dale.

Heading over there to grab a handful this morning.

Any word/speculation as to how close we are to completion for the next release???
