Recommended Posts

When i run the following script from Scite and press the restart button in the GUI it restarts the GUI..

but after compiling it .. the restart ends the GUI but it never restarts..

Can anyone else confirm this ?

AutoIt beta

#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****

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

$Parent = GuiCreate ("Test", 400, 400)
$Tab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 350, 300)
$Tab1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab1")
$Restart = GuictrlCreateButton("Restart", 200,100,150,20)
$Tab2 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab2")
$Menu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("help")

While 1
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
If $msg = $Restart Then
  Run('"' & @AutoItExe & '"' & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteScript "' & @ScriptFullPath & '" /restart')

Emiel Wieldraaijer,

if you want the script to rerun when compiled then you need to tell Windows that - rather than asking it to run AutoIt3.exe and a script. ;)

Change the Run line to read:

and it should do as you expect when compiled - it certainly does for me. :)

The default is changed and you now need to add #pragma statement to allow the use of /AutoIt3ExecuteScript on a compiled script:

#pragma compile(AutoItExecuteAllowed, true)
