SciTE "Stop Executing" Ctrl-Break Shortcut Not Working

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

In the tools menu there is a "Stop Executing" menu item linked to the Ctrl-Break shortcut.

While running a script, this item becomes available to click.

But when trying to use the shortcut, it does not seem to have any effect.

This functionality is also mentioned when running as script in the console:

>Running:(3.3.14.2):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3.exe "test.au3"    
--> Press Ctrl+Alt+Break to Restart or Ctrl+Break to Stop

 

Looks like pressing on the Break key counts as Pause; HotKeySet("{BREAK}", "...") does not trigger the function, while HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "...") does

What happens when you select Tools/Stop Executing from the SciTE Menu?
Are you running the latest version? 
Show me the whole SciTE console Output so I can see what your enviroment is,

Using the menu stops the script.

My installed version, 3.3.14.2, seems to be the latest.

This is the output.

There is no real relation between the release of AutoIt3 and the SciTE4AutoIt3 version.
You are running the latest AutoIt3Wrapper and I've just tested and when I press Ctrl+FN+Break then it stops fine. ( Break on my Laptop is FN+PGDN to get Break)
Are you running any other program that is capturing keys?

There are no other programs capturing keys. I have a desktop keyboard and neither left or right ctrl + break triggers the shortcut (or shift/left alt/right alt).

Is this keybinding defined somewhere? I would be interested in seeing the keycode required to trigger it. Noticably because Microsoft defines a VK_CANCEL and a VK_PAUSE, which are not the same. And my Pause/Break key doesn't seem to be sending VK_CANCEL, but VK_PAUSE, and as a desktop keyboard without FN, I can't toggle between them.

Have you tried using a desktop computer with a standard layout keyboard?

...Actually, reading this: https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Break_key#/Modern_keyboards

The mentioned Ctrl+Sroll Lock combination seems to trigger the keybinding.

The Ctrl-Break combination is monitored by SciTE itself. Any other defined combination in AutoIt3Wrapper.ini is done through a simple SetHotKey() statement.
The SciTE Source is available on the SciTE website in case you want to have a look at the source.

Yea SciTE has it bound to Ctrl+VK_CANCEL

VK_CANCEL, IDM_STOPEXECUTE,  VIRTKEY, CONTROL

And I guess some keyboards use the "Pause/Break" to send Pause, others Break.
