invalid keyword

5 posts in this topic

hey guys I have a question

I am trying to make a while-loop that goes on for 5 minutes until the process ($pid) disappears

but I am getting a "invalid keyword at the start of this line" error on "Return 0" statement.

can somebody figure this out for me?

 

Global $wait_time = 300
Local $hTimer = TimerInit()
Local $time_diff =0

   While ProcessExists($pid) 
      $time_diff = TimerDiff($hTimer) 

      If ($time_diff > $wait_time) Then Return 0

   WEnd

That's because Return can only be used from within a function. Do you mean "Exit" to end the script?

yeah,, I soon found out that I had to use ExitLoop :sweating:

I can just replace Return 0 to exitloop right?

ExitLoop exits the current loop (ExitLoop 3 also exits the loop around it and the loop around that loop, if they exist), Exit exits the entire script no matter where it is.

For $i = 1 To 5
    ConsoleWrite($i & @CRLF)
    If $i = 2 Then ExitLoop
Next
ConsoleWrite("Done with $i loop, $i is now: " & $i & @CRLF)

Exit

; Script will never get here because the exit, so this msgbox will not happen
MsgBox(0, 0, "All done!")
