Script Pausing during execution

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm doing a script that automatizes some file saving processes with a rendering program.

Since there are predefined times in the rendering elaboration the click times are fine like they are in my script. But sometimes they take a little longer so i would like to pause with an hotkey the script.

I know it can be made with Sleep() command.

But I would like to know how I can pause the script without starting the re-execution all over.

When I pause the script it's fine, but when I unpause it, it restarts all over, I need to know how I can do some sort of checkpoint so when it unpauses it starts back from where it was interrupted.

This is the sourcecode:

HotKeySet("{F2}","Chiudere")
HotKeySet("{F3}","StartStop")
$dd=False
While 1
    Sleep (10)
WEnd
Func StartStop()
    $dd= Not $dd
    If $dd=True Then
        On()
    Else
        Off()
    EndIf
EndFunc

Func On()
    While 1
        Sleep(1000)
        MouseClick("right",335,374)
        Sleep(120000)
        MouseClick("right",401,545)
        Sleep(120000)
        MouseClick("right",230,552)
        Sleep(120000)
        Mouseclick("right",236,442)
        Sleep(120000)
    Wend
EndFunc

Func Off()
    While 1
    Sleep (10)
    WEnd
EndFunc

Func Chiudere()
    Exit
EndFunc

Thanks for your time.

See the example here, HotKeySet. When a script is paused this way, it'll pick up where it was before the pause. Here's another example, just use the 'pause' hotkey after starting the script, and before it ends:

Global $Paused
HotKeySet("^p", "TogglePause")  ; ^p = CTRL + P

While 1
    For $i = 1 to 10
        ConsoleWrite($i & " ")
        Sleep(500)
    Next
    ConsoleWrite("- All Done!" & @LF)
    Exit
WEnd

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

Ok, I saw a similar example in some guide, I think I can find a workaround for it. Thanks
