Getting rid of exit option in tray, but leaving icon and pausing ability
4 posts in this topic
This is a personal project to log into several facebook accounts and send a message to a specific person on their birthday. I need to stop a script in a few different ways for several different reasons. For example, it might start sending the email to the wrong account, it might do something other than send a message, it might fail to logout of one account, etc.
1) Pause the script at it's exact location with a resume feature in case I need to put it on hold while I do another task.
2) Pause the script at it's current location with the option to start over or execute another part of the script (example in GUI with multiple buttons).
Also, is there a way to interact with menus? If I log into facebook how can I force it to go straight to sending a message to the proper person? I tried automating a mouseclick but the window opens in different places. I also tried searching for specific text and I couldn't get any information from the windows info tool on the facebook page.
Also, how do I get my code in here to show like it does in my editor? (scite)
Thanks for looking at it, and any help/suggestions I sgreatly appreciated!
Okey guys , here's the thing, My script is running fine, but when it's already running i cant turn it off or pause by clicking the on/off button unless i manually close it on my taskbar. What i wanted to happen is "if i click the ($switch = turn On and Off Button) to Off the script will STOP Running but not closing the entire GUI because i tried to use Exit and ExitLoop but it closes the entire GUI. and i don't want that to happen.
BTW. I'm new in AutoIT and practice scripting hope somebody could help me Godbless. feel free to view my script
So I have a lot of different functions in the little program I'm making. Most of them use the Do statement, such as finding images, clicking buttons, etc.
The question I have is how would I be able to both
1) Create a hotkey to pause whatever I am doing at the moment. If I have to put something into every function in the program, I don't mind.
2) Create a hotkey to exit whatever I am doing and stop all loops or commands and bring back the main GUI?
i want a script that
"on the beginning of the program it pings to check if there is internet connectivity.
if there is internet connectivity
then it executes my code
else if there is no internet it waits at background to detected internet connectivity then executes my code."
Is this possible
I run multiple AutoIT scripts concurrently, is there a way of distinguishing between them?
When I look under Details in task manager I just see a bunch of "AutoIt3.exe" processes. Under the processes tab I again just see a bunch of "AutoIt v3 Script" or "AutoIt v3 Script (32 bit)" applications. When I hover my mouse over the tray icon I can see the tooltip "AutoIt - Current Time.au3" but am not sure how to reference this.
For example if I run a script called "Current Time.au3", how can I determine from another au3 script if this "Current Time.au3" script is running and grab it's handle (using WinGetHandle() or similar)? Following from that l'd even like to pause/resume the script, if that's possible..
