How to check while in loop ?

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

If GUI when being shown is a looping function, then what if in that loop i have a function where something going on but i still want to be able to interact with GUI, maybe stop the function or execute another function while this one runs ?

foe example

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $Button
            While 1
                ConsoleWrite ("Looping" & @CRLF)
                $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
                Switch $Msg
                    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                    msgbox (0,'','U tried to close me')
                ExitLoop
                EndSwitch
            WEnd
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Why cant i get my msgbox popped out ? and if the use of switch is good at all ?

Thanks in advance

madasraka,

Your code works fine for me - the MsgBox appears every time I click the [X] when looping. :x

If you are interested in interrupting running functions, I would recommend the Interrupting a running function tutorial in the Wiki - lots of good tips there. :P

Thanks for your help

madasraka,

What is the difference between switch and select ?

The main difference is that Switch deals with different Cases of a single variable, whereas Select can deal with different variables in each Case. So which is "better" is dependent on the scenario you face - in a GUIGetMsg loop Switch is ideal and offers (IMO) a cleaner appearance.

Switch is also "better" (again IMO) if you require multiple Cases to run the same code:

Switch GUIGetMsg()
    Case GUI_EVENTCLOSE, $hExit_Button, $mExit_MenuItem
        Exit
EndSwitch

; --------------------------------------------------------

$iMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Select
    Case $iMsg = GUI_EVENTCLOSE Or $iMsg = $hExit_Button Or $iMsg = $mExit_MenuItem
        Exit
EndSelect

A lot easier on the typing fingers! :P

Also that wiki example, i was like "Yeah i use that all the time"

I am delighted you find it so useful. :x
