Hi all, 

I am looking for a quick tip on why my autoit script crashes when I run a timer. Currently I have this code:

      ....(more code above this)....

          Case $button2
                      function1()
           Case $butTimer
                      _Timer_setTimer($hGUI, 3200, "_timedout")

        ......

         Func _timedout()

                       Msgbox(0, "Timed out", "Time is up!")

          Endfunc

When the button is pressed, my timer starts, correct? It doesnt seem to matter if I have it on button activation or not, after the time goes by for a bit, it crashes. :(

Seemingly when the time is up, my script crashes. 

Thanks for your help!

While I know seeing the rest of my code can be beneficial, it's a group effort and I don't want to share everyone's work. Everything works perfectly until the button press that in my mind is starting the timer. Is that correct? I have tested the functioning program that doesn't include the timer and it works fine. It is ONLY when the button for the timer is pressed that the program freezes. 

I have never used timers with autoit before, and am new to the whole timer process. I need a timer I can vary the amount of time for to countdown, when the countdown is complete, the timer will then activate a function. This was just a test timer to see if the idea would work. Can I get general help with trying to make a timer work?

I've tried the help file and followed it to the point that the program crashes.  I assume the program crashes because it's not meant to be when a button is pressed, but I just wanted to verify this and see if there were ideas out there. No need to be rude.

rude?  Its hard to speculate what is happening in your script if you don't post other parts of it..... Idk what the problem is... you press a button .. time goes by a msgbox pops up.  script is over.  theres not crash just the end.  Again without seeing other parts can't really say much else. your saying an amout of time goes by button press or no and it crashes anyway.  Doubtful this has anything to do with the timer portion but who knows bc we can't see.    using the timer functions are well documented in the help file.  and .... good luck....:D

The snippet TE posted don't throw's the error. The crash is a result of the code he hasn't posted maybe the real callback func.

And nobody can, without seeing code showing the issue, do more then saying helpfile is your friend, all other is wasted time. Reading in tea leaves and analyzing will give better result => a good cup of tea.

      Hello! Thanks you for looking at my post
      **No source code I'm sorry work related can't copy information**
      I've been using autoit for about 1 year. 
      I'm having trouble automating a click on an internet explorer web page and I've tried a lot of examples from help pages and forums already. The object I'm trying to click on isnt always in the same spot so I can't use mouse click or control click, I have tried to use the different get collection options and clickbyname, or index or get object. I'm just struggling. 
      Description of object I'm trying to click -- 
      HTML Code looks like <a ng-click.. "Click Here" it appears it's just a click able object named "click here" that opens a hidden window by running a script inside the web page. I'm not able to grab the information from the window unless it's open so I have to automate this click somehow. 
       
      I understand it's difficult to assist without having something to look at, I apologize for that sincerely and appreciate and assistance and suggestions.

      Hi
      So I am trying to click the green button, this button is not always in the same place. So fare I am trying to click it by finding the color but there is also something else with the same color on the screen (circled in yellow) that is causing issues. Is there a way to use the Title and Class of the window (can't be just the window as there are more than one with the same name).
      How does AutoIt Info get this information?

      Hello all! 
       
      Getting this error :
      (22) : ==> Variable used without being declared.: if $vNumber = 0 Then if ^ ERROR  
      But I'm sure I have defined the variable, as in the top of my script has 
      Global $vNumber = 0  
      How would I go about fixing this?

      Hi AutoIT masters,
      Good day! Sorry to have bothered this forum but we really need help. We are working on an automation project that is running on VDI server. The BOTS are in .exe are running fine until AV detected them and deleted the files. The files were re-compiled and AV kept on deleting them. The copy of the .exe BOT deleted were sent to Symantec for whitelisting. After whitelisting, it is no longer deleted but no longer working as designed (showing Line script error). We checked the scripts and there were no issues since we run it using SciTE editor and it performed the desired task. Good thing we found on this thread the solution using .a3x and the BOTS worked fine and no longer deleted. Now, the problem is they are asking why the BOTS won't run in .EXE and what is the reason behind Symantec AV deleting them. We raised a case with Symantec but they cannot provide further information as they are always seeing the file as "False Positive". We even tested with Symantec turned off and those .EXE files are working fine, however, after re-enabling, it got deleted.
      Just seeking help on how to better convince them that it is really Symantec causing the issue and the .a3x file.

      Scite 3.4.4
      Win 10
      I click "Help" or press F1, there is no response
      If I use the file explorer and double click Autoit.chm or Autoit3.chm help opens.
      There is no dialog to check or uncheck "Always ask before opening this file" when clicking on these files.
       
      If you are curious as to why I dont have the latest version, I am creating a back up laptop that has a VERY extensive automation application that I have written over the past 15 years.
       
      An extremely potent, powerful, needed function has been deleted in the upgrade of Autoit in recent years that I can not do without. If my main laptop dies, which it almost did, I am in a very bad position. So I bought the exact same laptop and I am "cofiguring" it to work exactly the same as my main laptop. However, this one has been "Upgraded" to Win 10 which I hope is not the problem. 
      Thanks for any help
