There are many ways to achieve what you want, but none are quite as simple as you might hope.

First off, you must think about what you've done, logically.

At the very least, you need to add in some Sleeps, but that's just the start.

You also need to correct your code as you have an error in your 'For $x =' line.

You also need to look at getting the button ID ... use the Window Info Tool for that.

Then understanding the 'Adlib' function calls and probably incorporating them.

More often than not these days, I just use IniWrite and IniRead with a second dedicated EXE that is a simple floating GUI with a STOP button. I find that often works best and flawless. Obviously, when you click the STOP button, it writes to an INI file entry, which the other EXE regularly checks. You don't want it being checked any more often than about once every second or 500 millisecs though.


GreenCan who posted meanwhile, has it right though, you need to study the Help file and become more familiar with what you are using and the logic of what you are trying to achieve. A good search here at the Forum, will also help you immensely.
