ctrl break stopping my compiled script

Recommended Posts

By accident I discovered that ctrl-break not only stops a script being written and tested with tools/go, but even the compiled script is affected. I tried this on a variety of script and always got the same results.

ctrl-break is used so seldom by normal users that it is probably not a big deal, but it is a nuisance.

I would like to stop ctrl-break from acting on my compiled scripts.

I tried the following from the help file "GuiCreate" example and ctrl-break stops the compiled version:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>


; example 1
Func Example1()
Local $msg

GUICreate("My GUI") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; will display an empty dialog box

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
     $msg = GUIGetMsg()

     If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
EndFunc ;==>Example1

I tried

Break(0) ;Disable break

But that didn't seem to work.

Anyone have an idea on how to stop ctrl-break from stopping my compiled script?

you can try to go around it with something similar to

If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE And _IsPressed(11)+_IsPressed(13) <> 2 Then ExitLoop

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.

Thanks to both of you, BogQ and Rover.

Opt("GUICloseOnESC", 0) worked, funny how it worked on Break as well as ESC. I didn't try the other, went for simple.

thanks again. John.
