Increase gui responsiveness; possible?

3 posts in this topic

I have a loop that deletes and copies files.

I have set up the 'if GuiGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE then' clause to invoke a msgbox that asks the user if they want to cancel during these operations.

What I'm seeing is that once I hit the close button, it's not instantanious nor is it 5 secs later that I'm getting the prompt back. This is a problem as 5 or 6 files have either been deleted or copied beyond the point of the initial 'X' press.

I tried putting in sleep(250) to release a bit of CPU time to the GUI but it makes no difference...

Is there a way to increase the responsiveness of the GUI dialog controls when reporting to GuiGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE that I'm missing?

TIA

Here's my _PurgeFiles(). If $iProgress is enabled, the GUI is displayed.

Func _PurgeFiles($aTemp, $i_base = 1); idea by Brenda Wallace
    if $sExtensions <> "" Then $aTemp = _ArrayFilter($aTemp, stringsplit($sExtensions,","))
    $iPurgeCount = ubound($aTemp) - $i_base
    For $i = $i_base To ubound($aTemp) - $i_base
        sleep(250)
        if $iProgress = "1" then
            if GuiGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE then 
                if msgbox(4+16+256,$sApptitle, "Are you sure you want to cancel the current operation?") = 6 Then 
                    return -1
                    ExitLoop
                EndIf
            EndIf
        EndIf
        $aPath = StringSplit($aTemp[$i],"\")
        _NotifyUser("Purging " & $i & " of " & $iPurgeCount & " files", ($i/$iPurgeCount) * 100, Round(($i/$iPurgeCount) * 100, 0) & "%", $aPath[$aPath[0]])
        $iDelete = 1
        if $sExtensions <> "" Then
            $aExtension = StringSplit($aTemp[$i],".")
            $iDelete = StringInStr($sExtensions, $aExtension[$aExtension[0]])
        EndIf
        if $iDelete <> 0 Then
            If FileDelete($aTemp[$i]) = 0 Then
                FileSetAttrib($aTemp[$i], "-R")
                FileDelete($aTemp[$i])
            EndIf
        EndIf
    Next
    return 1
EndFunc  ;==>_PurgeFiles

try this

If GuiGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE then 
                $ans = msgbox(4+16+256,$sApptitle, "Are you sure you want to cancel the current operation?")
                If $ans = 6 Then 
                    return -1
                    ExitLoop
                EndIf
            EndIf

I believe ( not absolute) your message box, as you have written it, allows the for/next loop to continue. I did not think this was possible with a message box. Please let me know if this works for you
