Do...Until Loop weirdness

Recommended Posts

I have this loop in my code right now...

$imageColor = PixelGetColor(376,533)
            $imageColorHex = Hex($imageColor)
                Do
                    $imageColor = PixelGetColor(376,533)
                    $imageColorHex = Hex($imageColor)
                    ;MsgBox(0,'','In Loop Hex: ' & $ImageColorHex)
                Until $imageColorHex == '00FFFFFF' 
                MsgBox(0,'','Out of Loop', 5)
            MouseClick('Left',376,533)
            ;New window

The MsgBox inside the Do...Until loop, if it is commented out...my script pauses, and I don't get the "Out of Loop" message box. However, If I uncomment the msgbox in the Do loop, I get the msgbox in the loop, and the msgbox when it leaves the loop, and my mouseclick....??

I tested this snippet and it works ok for me. It will show the out of loop message box as soon as there is a white pixel at that spot and then moves the mouse to it.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I use sometimes console output for debugging and sometimes messagebox, but my choice of debugging small snippets is Beep()

Try your code with Beep() :)

Do
        $imageColor = PixelGetColor(376,533)
        $imageColorHex = Hex($imageColor)
        Beep(800,100)
Until $imageColorHex == '00FFFFFF' 
Beep(600,100)

Beep? lol, never used it...maybe I will give it a whirl

Edit: not much information gained from beep, most the time I debug to get some sort of variable being passed, so it wouldn't help, but I do see it's uses.

I Use Beep() at diferent frequencies for different expected situations, so I know whats going on with it even if I'm in my kitchen making a nice cup of tea :)

That's another great Idea of debugging. Great! I love it. I do have to try this in the next days.

What do you think of running that in a big office? :)
