Exit / Stop Script

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Ctrl+Break stops script only if AutoIt window is active. It doesn't work while automation is going on elsewhere.

Is there a way to stop the script regardless of where the automation is happening?

Thanks

What didn't  work exactly as I have no idea what you mean with AutoIt being the active screen?

As in when the script is automating other apps, like Excel and a remote application, exiting the script via CTRL+Break or via a HotKeySet does not work. Could this be due to the fact the script is always doing something, hence doesn't give it the chance to read any keyboard entry via a manual method, and hence why CTRL+Break or HotKeySet are not read to be actioned?

Also, does this forum support email notification for post responses? I don't get any, hence the late replies...

Call me slow, but I am still puzzled what you mean here. Show me a demo script that has something blocking an hotkey set by HotKeySet().

Hi, it's a fairly short script, hence I've copied all of it below. Two issues with it, 1. HotKey does not respond while the script is running, 2. the If conditions do not work, I've created a post for the second issue here

#include <Array.au3>
#include <Excel.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

;Ensure this script is saved in the same directory as the DCW.
;Ensure InboxConfigTool.exe is open and Maximised.

you want to to stop the script using hotkeys

right?

I ran your script and hotkeyset worked fine while auto it window is minimized.. please could you be more specific???

HotKeySet('e', 'EndProgram')
Edited by 232showtime

ill get to that... i still need to learn and understand a lot of codes graduated.gif

Correct answer, learn to walk before you take on that marathon.

Yes that's correct. Forgive me for asking what may be a stupid question, but this specific hotkey to be actioned upon only requires the letter e to be entered on the keyboard with no other key needing to be entered right?

If so, this did not work for me while I ran the entire script copied in previously. It also did not work for the simple script below.

MsgBox(65, "Update", "Hello!")

HotKeySet('e', 'EndProgram')

Func EndProgram()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>EndProgram

This script ends right after the MsgBox is closed so am unsure what you are trying to say here.

In case you mean that the letter e doesn't close the MsgBox then:

  1. MsgBox() is a blocking function and indeed can't be interupted by a HotKeySet(). Workaround is to build your own MsgBox() func with a GUI.
  2. In your case it would have never worked anyways since the HotKey isn't set yet when the MsgBox() is displayed.

Thanks for confirming, I assume there are other blocking functions going in my original script hence the hotkeysets do not work. I've updated my script to ask for my input after each cycle of the automation is completed, from whereby I can abort it as an option. Good enough for now. I'll have a try with a GUI workaround though for future projects, thanks again.
