So I have a lot of different functions in the little program I'm making. Most of them use the Do statement, such as finding images, clicking buttons, etc.
The question I have is how would I be able to both
1) Create a hotkey to pause whatever I am doing at the moment. If I have to put something into every function in the program, I don't mind.
2) Create a hotkey to exit whatever I am doing and stop all loops or commands and bring back the main GUI?
I have created an exit function and registered using OnAutoItExitRegister.But it is not running when I close the app from taskbar or even with normal exit during end.
Below is the part of code and the included files.
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <FileConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> #include <Date.au3> #include <file.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <String.au3> OnAutoItExitRegister("Exit_Program") Func Exit_Program() LoggingMainScr("Entered Exit_Program") Local $exitmethod = ["Natural closing", "close by Exit function", "close by clicking on exit of the systray","close by user logoff","close by Windows shutdown"] ExitProgram("Exit with exit code: "& @exitCode & " And because of: " & $exitmethod[@exitmethod],@exitmethod) EndFunc Func ExitProgram($sReason="Exit by user",$sCode=0) LoggingMainScr($sReason) if $sCode <> 0 then LoggingMainScr("stopped before completion") FileDelete(@ScriptDir&"\Machines*.txt") FileDelete(@ScriptDir&"\PsExec.exe") FileDelete(@ScriptDir&"\HyperVMachines.ps1") FileDelete(@ScriptDir&"\VMwareMachines.ps1") EndFunc Func LoggingMainScr($sMessage) LoggingDefault($sMessage,@ScriptDir&"\MainScr_Logging.log") EndFunc Func LoggingDefault($sMessage,$sLogFile=@ScriptDir&"\Logging.log") If $sMessage = "" Then FileWriteLine($sLogFile, "") Else FileWrite($sLogFile,_NowCalc() & " :: " & $sMessage&@CRLF) EndIf EndFunc Any suggestion.
For some reason my personal notes were omitted when posting.
Still a Newb it seems! So have attached my slightly modified example.
If I comment out Exit button references script will not Exit even with windows 'X' button icon.
If I'm losing GUI/Tab focus I cannot see where is the difference with(out) definition.
Tell me why when I shut down Windows, OnAutoItExitRegister function is activated twice?
This is an example of the reference
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> OnAutoItExitRegister("MyTestFunc") OnAutoItExitRegister("MyTestFunc2") Sleep(1000) Func MyTestFunc() MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Exit Results 1", 'Exit Message from MyTestFunc()') EndFunc ;==>MyTestFunc Func MyTestFunc2() MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Exit Results 2", 'Exit Message from MyTestFunc()') EndFunc ;==>MyTestFunc2
