I am very new to AutoIt. I apologize in advance.

I have searched through the forums, but aparently I am not very good at it.

My problem is my GUI. The buttons are unresponsive, sometimes requiring 3 or 4 clicks before the click is recognized by the GuiGetMsg() loop. I do not have a "sleep" programmed in.

I have read about GUIOnEventMode. Is this a better control system than the loop? It seems that most people are using the Msg loop. I'm just not sure.

Found this in the forum search: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...wtopic=7668&hl=

But I don't have more than one msg loop. So it doesn't seem to help me. Code is attached. The only buttons that work right now are browse and close.

Check this:

I'll suggest you, to store the ID returned in variables:


$btnBrowse = GuiCtrlCreateButton("&Browse", 270, 18, 100, 25)

Check your actual code and just do the comparison:

(explanation: GUIGetMsg() is requested once time at time, not twice. And GUIGetMsg() with a parameter zero inside would do the script a bit slow, because is the advanced mode (unnecessary in this case))


While 1;GuiGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

$msg = GuiGetMsg()

If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE then ExitLoop


Case $msg = $btnBrowse ; browse button

Thanks Josbe. That helped very much. I have read most of the help file but didn't find any of these helpful tidbits. Is there another resource written with coding standards so that while I learn this scripting language I can code more efficiently?

Well, this could be learned from the helpfile, some concepts that you can read:

- GUI reference (you can read both differences, OnEvent and MessageLoop modes)

- OnEvent mode

- MessageLoop mode

Experiment with the examples included, too.
