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

Recommended Posts

kor

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.
