AdLibUnRegister x _Timer_KillAllTimers

3 posts in this topic

Hi forum, I always use AdLibUnRegister for each AdLibRegister used um code...

Sometimes have many AdLibUnregister.

Today I read the function _Timer_KillAllTimers.

The doubt: can I use _Timer_KillAllTimers for kill all timers created by AdLibRegister?

Like this?

Thanks, Detefon

#include <Timers.au3>

HotKeySet("{F9}", "_quit")

AdlibRegister("tic", 500)

While Sleep(250)

Func tic()
    Beep(2000, 80)
EndFunc   ;==>tic

Func _quit()
EndFunc   ;==>_quit

Func on_exit()
;~  AdlibUnRegister("tic")
EndFunc   ;==>on_exit

As I understand it there is no need to unregister Adlib calls before exiting the script - they are controlled internally and are automatically cleared by AutoIt as it tidies up after itself.

But you do need to exit any timers you have created using _Timer_SetTimer as this function creates a timer outside AutoIt's control - so a call to _Timer_KillTimer or _Timer_KillAllTimers is necessary. See here for the advice that I found some time ago and on which I base my advice.

I hoe that helps. :)
