Shortcut to stop script

4 posts in this topic

I believe there was an Autoit function, but I can not recall, as it has been months since I've used it...

Is there a shortcut to stop/pause a script, in case of a runaway script?

I've tried setting a hotkey to exit, but it doesn't seem to work... or maybe I'm just doing it wrong?

Can you show us your script so that some ideas can be drawn ? .. Hotkeys do work .. Maybe u r implementing it in a wrong way . ;)

The hotkey will not work if your script is stuck on a blocking function. It will only respond once the blocking function finishes.

Shark,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. ;)

You might find the Interrupting a running function tutorial in the Wiki of interest if that is what you are trying to do. :)
