GUI won't respond when script running

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a script I made which is a pixel bot for a game and I want to add GUI controls for starting, stopping and pausing (right now I use hot keys for Exiting and Pausing).

I have tried both the MessageLoop and OnEvent method but when I click start (which runs my script, my script is an endless while loop looping through the pixel search, moving, etc...) pressing anything else on the GUI doesn't work.

I can get the same behaviour in a quick sample GUI, just make a GUI, give it two buttons, make each button amend the text of the same label but give one a sleep(5000) command and the other button won't respond until after 5 seconds.

Is there anyway that I have can the GUI break out of the script that the start button runs to be able to called the Pause or Exit function?

See you soon with a legitimate question I hope.
