SOLVED problems with while loop in gui, when losing gui focus

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm not sure why, but the While loop seems to process EVERYTHING all the time. It doesn't actually wait for a button to be pressed. Thus, I've had to do some ugly hacks to prevent parts of the loop from processing until very specific conditions are met.

I am having a problem now that the program is done though that if a user clicks outside of the GUI or the gui loses focus then the whole thing crashes. I have posted the entire code and hopefully someone can help me see what I did wrong.

Warning, this script relies a lot on our internal active directory so you might have to change a bit around to get it to run on your machines.

You have 2 controls in your script that don't exist, $cUnlock and $cReset, so the GUIGetMsg return will be 0 if nothing is being done on the GUI, and because these controls don't exist the value of the variables is going to be 0, so the Select Case for Case $msg = $cReset is going to be true because $msg = 0 and $cReset = 0. Either create those controls before entering the While loop, or change the values of the variables to 9999 so that they won't be acted on before they're created.


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.

The controls do exist, but aren't created until after $hLookup is pressed.

Does your suggestion still apply? If so, where would I define the values of these not yet existing controls?

You declare the 2 variables at the top of the script, I would give them a value there.
