You probably need define $msg before the While loop..

macweirdo,

You are creating the GUI, but you have misused Not and so the code exits the While..WEnd loop and the GUI closes as soon as any event occurs! ;)

I will try to explain:

By using Not you converted $msg into a boolean variable (either True or False) - from now on any comparison operator (such as <>) will make Boolean comparisons. As far as AutoIt is concerned, 0 = False and any other value = True.

While no events are occuring, GUIGetMsg returns zero - you convert that to True by using Not and the comparison is valid because -3 is also treated as True.

As soon as an event of any kind occurs, GUIGetMsg returns an integer which Not converts to 0 (False) - now the comparison is not valid and you exit the loop and the script.

A bit complex, but I hope you follow. :alien:

Just use:

While $msg <> -3

in your loop and all will be well.

Please ask if anyting is unclear. :huh2:

macweirdo,

My pleasure. ;)

how do I change the title of this topic to begin with [sOLVED]?

You need 5 posts total (I think) and then you will see an "EDIT" button appear on the post. Then edit the first post and select the "Use full editor" option" - that allows you to edit the title.

I will ask a Mod to change this one for you. :alien:

Edit: And as you can see, it has been done within a few minutes - thanks to the kind Mod! :huh2:
