How to stop the script from running

Recommended Posts

Luke101

When the autoit script is running i would like to stop execution when I see it doing something wrong. How can I stop the script from running by pressing a hotkey?

Make a function that just exits the application.

Func _Exit()
    Exit 0
EndFunc

Then assign a hotkey to that function.

Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped using ladies scented body wash and switched to Old Spice, he could smell like he’s me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on a boat with the man your man could smell like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love. Look again, the tickets are now diamonds. Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady. I’m on a horse.”

See the example code for this function, HotKeySet.

CTRL-Break from SciTE, or right click the icon in the system tray and select exit, or TaskManager and kill the task.


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

You can also Logoff or Restart/Shutdown your computer :whistle:

I get that kind of support whenever I hit Indian tech support, however all 5 answers would be completely off base.

the correct answer is: CONTROL plus (+) PAUSE (on modern keyboards - in the program is brake).
