Here's one way to skin the cat.

$start = False
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button1
            $start = True
        Case $button2
            $start = False
    EndSwitch
    If $start Then numbers()
WEnd


Func numbers()
    GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, "Step success//", 1)
EndFunc   ;==>numbers

Once you press button1, it will run the numbers function every time through the loop. As soon as you click button2 it will stop running the function.

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.
