When using GUIOnEventMode GuiGetMsg not working, read in helpfile => GUI Reference => GUI Concepts to understand this. And give your thread a title which belongs to the issue.

You were given the solution above. You have set the script to run using OnEvent mode - doing so prevents GUIGetMsg from working and so to capture the button event you will need to use GUICtrlSetOnEvent to assign a function to it.

I suggest reading the <GUIReference - GUI Concepts> section of the Help file to understand the difference between OnEvent & MessageLoop modes..
