Stuck in a loop (please help)

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi All, 

 

I am pretty new to this and still learning so please take it easy.. :)

 

I am writing a small script to jiggle the mouse (always so that the screen does not lock)

 

and then execute a few functions such as sending keys and starting batch scripts.. 

 

 

I am struggling as I seem to be stuck in a loop and cant work out how to do things differently. I have included the code below..  

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 143, 178, 192, 124)
$JiggleMouseCB = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Jiggle Mouse", 24, 48, 97, 17)
$SendKeysCB = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("SendKeys", 24, 72, 97, 17)
$RunBT = GUICtrlCreateButton("RunBT", 32, 112, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###
 
Func ReadInputs()
 
Global $sendkeysCBVar = GUICtrlRead($SendKeysCB)
Global $JiggleMouseCBVar = GUICtrlRead($JiggleMouseCB)
 
EndFunc
 
While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit
Case $RunBT
Call("ReadInputs")
Call("Processes")
 
EndSwitch
WEnd
 
 
 
Func Processes() ; The mouse jiggler works but i get stuck in this loop and cannot do the next operation
if $JiggleMouseCBVar = 1 then
call ("mouseJigllo")
EndIf
if $sendkeysCBVar = 1 then
call ("sendkeys")
EndIf
EndFunc
 
Func mouseJigllo()
While 1 ; something about this breaks the script I think it is because it is an infinite loop and in order to shut down the script its process has to be ended
$Checked = GUICtrlRead($JiggleMouseCB)
If $Checked = 1 Then
Sleep (10000)
MouseMove(50, 50, 100)
MouseMove(80, 60, 100)
ElseIf $Checked<>1 Then
Sleep(10000)
EndIf
WEnd
EndFunc
 
 
Func SendKeys()
WinActivate("LDEP")
WinWait("", "", 10)
Send("!f")
WinWait("", "", 10)
Send("p")
WinWait("", "", 10)
EndFunc
if anyone could offer me any advice it would be much appreciated.. Thanks in advance Steve Edited by Melba23

steve20020,

I would do it like this: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 143, 178, 192, 124)
$JiggleMouseCB = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Jiggle Mouse", 24, 48, 97, 17)
$SendKeysCB = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("SendKeys", 24, 72, 97, 17)
$RunBT = GUICtrlCreateButton("RunBT", 32, 112, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $RunBT
            Processes()

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func Processes()
    If GUICtrlRead($JiggleMouseCB) = 1 Then
        ConsoleWrite("Jiggling activated at " & @SEC & "!" & @CRLF)
        AdlibRegister("mouseJigllo", 10000)
    Else
        ConsoleWrite("Jiggling cancelled!" & @CRLF)
        AdlibUnRegister("mouseJigllo")
    EndIf
    If GUICtrlRead($SendKeysCB) = 1 Then
        SendKeys()
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>Processes

Func mouseJigllo()
    ConsoleWrite("Jiggling at " & @SEC & "!" & @CRLF)
    ;MouseMove(50, 50, 100)
    ;MouseMove(80, 60, 100)
EndFunc   ;==>mouseJigllo


Func SendKeys()
    ConsoleWrite("Sending!" & @CRLF)
    ;WinActivate("LDEP")
    ;WinWait("", "", 10)
    ;Send("!f")
    ;WinWait("", "", 10)
    ;Send("p")
    ;WinWait("", "", 10)
EndFunc   ;==>SendKeys
All clear? :)

P.S. When you post code please use Code tags - see here how to do it. Then you get a scrolling box and syntax colouring as you can see above now I have added the tags. ;)

Looks like we came up with the same basic idea for this. :)
 

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
Global $sendkeysCBVar, $JiggleMouseCBVar
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 143, 178, 192, 124)
$JiggleMouseCB = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Jiggle Mouse", 24, 48, 97, 17)
$SendKeysCB = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("SendKeys", 24, 72, 97, 17)
$RunBT = GUICtrlCreateButton("RunBT", 32, 112, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#endregion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $RunBT
            If GUICtrlRead($JiggleMouseCB) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                Adlibregister("mouseJigllo", 10000) ; move the mouse every 10 seconds
            Else
                AdlibUnRegister("mouseJigllo") ; stop moving the mouse
            EndIf
            If GUICtrlRead($SendKeysCB) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                SendKeys()
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func mouseJigllo()
            MouseMove(50, 50, 100)
            MouseMove(80, 60, 100)
EndFunc   ;==>mouseJigllo

Func SendKeys()
    WinActivate("LDEP")
    WinWait("", "", 10)
    Send("!f")
    WinWait("", "", 10)
    Send("p")
    WinWait("", "", 10)
EndFunc   ;==>SendKeys

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.

BrewManNH,

Great minds probably - at least I hope it is not the corollary. ;)

I read that function as mouse gigolo.  Had a good laugh... realized I was a nerd, then had a good cry.

I'll be here all week.

Melba23  & BrewManNH Many thanks for your help.. This now makes sense to me :) and I've learnt something new.. AdlibRegister :)
 
Apologies for not using code tags - newb mistake, I have now read the instructions posted by Jon and will not make the same mistake in future.. 
 
 
Danwilli - I did write it with that in mind sad but true, funny variable names keep me happy when my scripting ability fails me! :)
