Multithreading

4 posts in this topic

Hello, how could I multithread 2 commands?

E.G.. command 1 does 1 thing and while its doing that it'll do the second command

Example:

sendkey("{a}")

sleep(1000) ; 1 second

then while it's sleeping every second, it'll sleep for this command too

sendkey("{b}")

sleep(2000)

so every 2 seconds it'll hit b, and every second it'll hit a, therefore I think that is multithreadnig since doing it all in 1 command wont do them both at once

any idea?

John404,

You cannot truly multithread in AutoIt - it is single threaded process.

Search the forum for "multithread" and you will find people a lot cleverer than me who have created various workarounds. But if you want several things to happen in your script at different regular intervals - take a look at Adlib in the Help file. ;)

But do not post code here where you use it to spam keys as you suggest above! :)

This topic looks ... awfully familiar.

Besides ... if you'd have done a search on Multi-threading or read the help file (you know .... like what people told you to do in the linked topic) ... you'd have found out that AutoIt doesn't do what you're asking.

John404,

Please stick to the one thread - you were getting a lot of sensible help in the last one. :)
