Noob question about while loops/if statements

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Skip this paragraph if you don't care and will just answer my question :). I just started using this about a week ago, have been trying to figure everything out. Unfortunately before this Javascript was the only computer language I had ever learned. I had no reason for loops/if statements up to this point, as could just use winwaitactive most of the time, but now here's what i need help with:

This application has a bug (being fixed right now, just hasn't been) that won't let me login unless you SPAM click the log in button. My computer has no mouse, as I use a wireless keyboard with a little touchpad, so i can't spam click. I want to have autoIT do the spamming for me. Here is what I have written:

while(WinExists("SmoothRidgidBodyExample") = True) {
if (WinExists("SmoothRidgidBodyExample", "Menu") = true) {
MouseClick("primary",300,630,1,1);
Sleep(1000);
if ((WinExists("SmoothRidgidBodyExample", "Login")) = true) {
MouseClick("primary",400,330,30,1);
Sleep(2000)
}
} else {
Exit;
}
);

Like I said, tiny noob script, but at least up until this point ive taught myself that eh?

How might I make this code work as it's meant? (Constructive criticism welcomed!)

cjm80,

This might be a good start.

I see no way that I have broken any of these rules. By spam click, I literally mean click repeatedly.

Because it seems as though you are interacting with the game StarForge.

it's a login menu for my HatchStore account actually. Related to the game StarForge, yes, but it's not the game.

cjm80,

How were you introduced to AutoIT and how did you find this forum? These are not idle questions. We will help any serious developer whether professional or hobbyist however, you must adhere to the forum rules which also covers automated login as well as other things. You may want to read them again, in entirety.

Made it much longer without any of the extra stuff and changed this a bunch, but would still love for someone to explain them to me, thanks :)

Here's a hint, this is AutoIt and AutoIt doesn't have line ending characters ("{").


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.

Was introduced to autoIT when searching for something to automate some changing of amp settings for my guitar a week ago, so that throughout playing a song if I timed it correctly, my settings would change as different guitars came in from a song, so that i would not have to worry about buying any new pedals/etc. This forum was on the main page. And yet again, I'm not trying to do anything against any of the rules. There is a bug with the app, where I can only login if i press a button repeatedly. This code doesn't type anything, and all it clicks are "Menu" "Login". I have a wireless keyboard that cost me $30, so it doesn't work very well. When trying to spam click, it just sticks down and says i held the button for the time i was clicking. You can go to their forums and find this bug if you'd like. Happens in all of their applications when trying to log in at the moment.

cjm80,

I see. You will find the expertise on this forum to be excellent. You might want to avoid certain words, however, spam being one of them. I don't know what the curly braces are in your code. Follow BrewmanNH's advice. Post if you have more problems.
