Dragging GUI makes script pause

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello,

When I move GUI, script pause until I release GUI.

I need to make script not pause while dragging GUI.
 

GUICreate("Hello world!",250,175,-1,-1)
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
GUISetOnEvent(-3, "exit_") ; Check if closed
GUISetState()

While 1
    ToolTip("This tooltip should move.")
    Sleep(50)
WEnd

Func exit_()
    GUIDelete()
    Exit
EndFunc

@algiuxas we can't offer much in the way of help when you don't include any of your code. Obviously, we have many GUI scripts on this forum, and they aren't all freezing when dragged, so there is something going on in your script specifically. Rather than having us consult our crystal ball, how about posting your code? ;)

I wrote this right now, and it still haves the same problem, script pauses while moving GUI.
I mean that it pauses, I didn't mean that it crashes, exits or etc., sorry.

Try this:

#Include <Timers.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Global $hGUI = GUICreate("Hello world!",250,175,-1,-1)
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
GUISetOnEvent(-3, "exit_") ; Check if closed
GUISetState()

Global $iMs = 30
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_TIMER, "_Interrupt")
DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "SetTimer", "hwnd", $hGUI, "int", 0, "int", $iMs, "int", 0)


While 1
    Sleep(50)
WEnd

Func exit_()
    GUIRegisterMsg($WM_TIMER, "")
    GUIDelete()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func _Interrupt()
    ToolTip("This tooltip should move.")
EndFunc

Thanks,
but this loop took about 40 milisecounds, is there a way to make it faster, like in a normal loop(0.01ms)?

Actually, with a 50ms sleep in there it takes at least 50ms. You can't use a sleep value under 10ms, sleep won't go lower.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I tested it without sleep :)

FYI: The function _Interrupt() is called every 30 ms.

Global $iMs = 30

I found a problem - if it's a big script or it took long to execute it, it will pause anyway.

This doesn't work...
 

#Include <Timers.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Global $hGUI = GUICreate("Hello world!",250,175,-1,-1)
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
GUISetOnEvent(-3, "exit_") ; Check if closed
GUISetState()
Global $t = TimerInit()
Global $iMs = 0
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_TIMER, "_Interrupt")
DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "SetTimer", "hwnd", $hGUI, "int", 0, "int", $iMs, "int", 0)


While 1
ToolTip("h")
WEnd

Func exit_()
    GUIRegisterMsg($WM_TIMER, "")
    GUIDelete()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func _Interrupt()
    ToolTip(TimerDiff($t)&@CRLF)
    sleep(Random(50,1000,1)
    $t = TimerInit()
EndFunc

I need another way to avoid pausing the script while moving/resizing GUI,

because I'm not sure how much time will one loop took.

I think you don't have understand the timer functionality.

The script will interrupt the execution every 30ms to call the _Interrupt(). When you put a sleep within that function the functionality of the timer will get obsolete.

 

You have to put the code which should run in any case to the _Interrupt() function. I don't know what is not working in your big script.

If it interrupts the script execution .. what is the difference to Adlib? Why not just register the function as adlib?

Isn't Sleep(1) a possibillity and below 10 ms?
i thought I read so

Adlib doesn't let continue the script on GUI move.

it's below 10 but the shortest possible sleep is 10 so sleep(1), sleep(5) and sleep(10) will effect the same.

      I've made a form in Koda where I make a list of 3 user definable elements that I want to be able to replicate with a button press so a user can add data that can be used as part of the program.

What is the best way to do this and can auto it add a variable while running by pressing a button?

      Hi,
      I made a small blunder with my code. I created the GUI under 1920x1080 resolution however, my user is configured to ONLY 1080x720 and cannot go any further than that.
      What do you guys think is the best way to correct this one? Resolution mathematics is something that came to mind however I do not have access to his PC to check  from time to time if  my estimation is correct and the resolution on my PC doesn't go down to 1080x720.
      Please help.

      Hello all ~
      I am running an autoit script on Windows 10 inside VMware Workstation 12 Pro version 12.5.2.  Technically I am remoting into ESXi which has a Domain Controller (DC), WebServer, FilServer, Windows 10, etc.  Using the GUI (i.e. running explorer.exe) I am able to open several different folders successfully.  The desktop, documents, USB external all open without issue.  The network share opening gives me issues.  Whenever I attempt to open \\filserver\users\user\sharedfolder I get the documents folder instead.  I understand that the documents folder is the default for explorer.  I have also attempted to use the letter drive mapped to the network share (Z:) and receive the same result.  When I run this script on Windows 10 alone without  the VM or the ESXi I am able to open the network share without problems.  I have tried to use the net use command to designate a letter M: to the network share folder prior to running the script.  This did not work for me.  
      One additional avenue I think might work is to use the systreeview321 and _GUICtrlTreeView_FindItem to step through the tree looking for the network share.  Once found,  double click on it and see if that opens the shared network folder.  I can click inside the VM with my mouse on the network share and it opens just fine.  Not sure if running up against GUI issues, or permission issues, or what?
      Thanks in advance,
      Davida Crozier

      This script is a subset of a much larger program, but it illustrates what I am dealing with.

      Hi everyone,
      GUICtrlSetState Function example ,i found $GUI_DROPACCEPTED isn't working in windows10 x64(windows_10_enterprise_2016_ltsb_x64).
      if the example put to windows10 x86 or windows xp, the $GUI_DROPACCEPTED is effective,
      the AutoIt Edition is v3.3.14.2.
      any ideas? thanks you.

      Hey Guys,
       
      So, the functions work, where primarygui() accurately determines the evaluation of the status of the checkboxes - the msgbox picks this up.
       
      However, later on, when we re-enter a 'for $i = 0 to ubound($checkbox)' loop, then in the 'batchinitial' function it doesn't picked up that the status&$i = 1, so it jumps out, then within the While 1 loop, it exits the loop in the first row, again because the status& $i= 0
      The "assign" line within the primarygui funtion, is this only a local assignment? if so, how can I make it cross function?
       
      Thank in adv for your help
