GUIGetMsg() not returning anything

Recommended Posts


I've been fumbling around with my script for the past hour and I can't get GUIGetMsg() to return anything from my GUI, so it just keeps looping and won't let me close it unless I end task.

Func Aboutbox()
    TrayItemSetState($tray1, $TRAY_UNCHECKED)

    $Aboutbox = GUICreate("About MyProgram", 254, 223, Default, Default)
    $objIE = _IECreateEmbedded()
    GUICtrlCreateObj($objIE, 0, 0, 254, 177)
    _IENavigate($objIE, "res://" & @AutoItExe & "/ABOUT")
    $AboutBoxBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 89, 189, 75, 23, $WS_GROUP)

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Case $AboutBoxBtn
EndFunc   ;==>Aboutbox

Anybody know why this won't work?

You're probably running OnEventMode, but it's hard to tell when you provided nothing for us to work on. Show us some code that actually runs and fails and we can help you.

In the future when asking for help, please write a short runnable/working reproducer (example) so we don't have to make wild guesses (like I did here). As a bonus you will see that you often find the solution when writing the reproducer.
