Multiple events handling?

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

I have a UI where a users has got two buttons. one "Play" and one "Pause". When I hit "Play" the program runs Func A, but then if I hit "Pause" the function associated to"Pause" is not run until the Func "Play" is not completed and this is exactly what I don't want as I want to stop the flow and being able to keep it going again if I press "Play" again.

Do you have any idea on how to do that?

At the moment (not working) I have something like this:

$start=GUICtrlCreateButton ( "Play", 20, 250, 70, 25)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($start, "StartButton")
$stop=GUICtrlCreateButton ( "Pause", 100, -1, 70, 25)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($stop, "StopButton")

Func StartButton()
 for $i=1 to 10
; do something
  sleep (1000)

Func StopButton()
; Pause the script

Thanks a lot for your help
