Stop repeating after pressing a key

Recommended Posts

JustinZandee

I want to create a loop which loops a code until for example f2 is pressed.

So I tried something with _IsPressed but it doesn't work.

Local $test = 

WinActivate("Notepad")
Do
    Send("hi")
Until _IsPressed("72", $test)

 

I don't know how I can do nothing when pressing f2 because it says "error: _IsPressed(): undefined function.".

I did put 

Send("hi")

after Local $test = but it gives the same error.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem? 

Maybe I am wrong and I need to use a whole other Function.. I am new to AutoIT so I am sorry..

@Jos I looked at it but I am not the best at English so I don't get it. I asked one more question.

I want to create a loop which loops a code until f2 is pressed.

Please show some example code and don't always say "Open the helpfile" or "Try something out" because I just don't get it.

If you cannot be bothered with looking at the help file or actually trying something, you're not going to get very far. This forum is dedicated to helping people with their scripts; it is not a place where you put in an order and someone barfs up the code for you.

This error:

Quote

 "error: _IsPressed(): undefined function.".

means you are missing the include file for that function at the top of your script. As Jos stated, look in the help file at _IsPressed() and it shows you right at the very top what include file to add.

@JLogan3o13 Than you guys don't get me. I need to stop my script when I press f2.

As I said:

Maybe I am wrong and I need to use a whole other Function

So I don't think _IsPressed is the right Function

I understand just fine, and see that you have a couple of issues in your script (like calling _IsPressed incorrectly), which is why we keep pointing you back to the help file. Written correctly, the script works just fine with _IsPressed. Here is what I will offer you:

  • Again, and as clearly as I can - you have to have the right include file at the top of your script for _IsPressed to work.
  • Your second parameter in _IsPressed is not correct, which is why it won't stop
  • 72 is not even the right key for "F2" as you claim to want.

All three items are clearly explained if you simply look at the example under _IsPressed.

While 1
    Send("hi ")
    Sleep(500)
    If $StopTYPE Then ExitLoop
WEnd

Func StopTYPE()
    $StopTYPE = True
EndFunc

 

I guess I was wrong, wait around long enough and someone will barf up code - albeit at triple the length it needs to be :)

You need to learn how to use help files to use AutoIT.

With Function AutoIT on SciTE.  there are 3 colors of the function for name!
- Dark blue: is a function is designed as available as Sleep (), Run (), ..
- Blue: is a user-defined function in officially recognized UDFs. Like _IP (), ..
- Black: is a function you write yourself!

For functions in UDF or functions you write yourself you can put anywhere in your script or different file, you simply declare the filename containing that function with the #include "FilePath\Name.au3" command. With built-in UDF functions with AT you only need to declare the name without the path (if placed in the same directory as the script does not need the path) #include <FileName.au3>

From here, to use the _IsPressed() function and learn how to use it,
type in the name of the function (_IsPressed) on SciTE, and click on the name (any part |_I|s|P|r|e|s|s|e|of the function and press F1 to open the HELP file and view the usage instructions and Library is required! So  _IsPressed()  need #include <Misc.au3>

Src: 

#include <Misc.au3>

WinActivate("Untitled - Notepad")

Do
    Send("hi")
    Sleep(100)
Until  _IsPressed("71") ; F2

Kind of nonsensical to say this after you spoon feed it to them ;)

For novices, coming to AutoIt usually comes from something (personal issues) not to learn, they want to be resolved soon and fast! I myself too!

The moment of initial confusion is inevitable. Depending on how you behave each person will have a different way of looking at it!

The problem is solved, and after that they will see AutoIT is great, they continue to apply it to the issues of work and personal life.
Continuing Study and apply. I believe it is not nonsense!

You are just picking random beginner facts and spouting them.  And this attracts useful members to the community? 

By all means answer 101 questions to people who have zero clue wtf they are doing, but that social assessment is idyllic at best (and omg ridiculous at worst).

Maybe instead of handing the whole thing completed, step through each problem with the OP. This could have been a useful 3-page thread based on the number of issues it started with.  The first correct answer should come from the OP, your solution impresses nobody.

I'm not a good coder! So it is not surprising that my code does not impress.

All my programs are released or the code I post, is all edited or rewritten from others people on this forum and other sources.
I always self-conscious about my bad code, so I rarely release them.

I do not need attention or impress anyone.
Participating in this forum is only for obtaining the code and code that can serve my problem.

And I can help someone, also need help like me!

Sorry to talk about issues not related to thread topic!

There are only three lines in my reply, no need to take things out of context.  The "You" in that sentence is anyone other than the OP handing out code under the pretense that they are teaching.

Again, being charitable and dispensing with answers is fine, I just dont believe it is accomplishing what you believe it to be accomplishing.

      Can we pause and resume the download in the InetGet function?
      If is possible, what is the solution please?

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a way to take a number value from a Row2 of a 2D array and according to this check if files that appear in rows 3-11 in the array exists.
      For example, if the number in Row2 is 5 I need to check for the files in Row 3-6 only, if it is 6 than rows 3-7 and so on.
      I thought on using a FOR loop but I have very little experience with those.
      Can you suggest the best way to do what I need?
      BTW, the files in Rows 3-11 will usually have blank value for any row above the number in Row2 (e.g. Row2 = 5 so Rows3-6 will have values but 8-11 be empty), The values I need are in Column 1 of the array, the name of the key from the INI file that the array was created from is in Column 0.
      Full Example:
      Row2 of Array:
      Col0 = Games# - Col1 = 5
      Rows3-6
      Col0 = Exe2 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe3 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe4 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe5 - Col1 = Path To File
      I need that if Row2 is 5 to check these above for rows if the file exists, if it was 6 then the next row as well and so on up until number 10 in Row2 as it can't go above 10.
      So basically for whatever number in Row2 from 2-10 need to check 1-9 rows from 3-11 to see if the files in Col1 exists and if any of them don't exist it should call a function that shows an error message.
      I'm pretty sure I have the first line of the for look correct:
      For $i = 1 To $aAIO[2][1] Just not sure how to continue from there, also not sure if $i should be equal 1 or 2.
      Help will be appreciated.

      Hi,
      I've written a specialty INI file editor for a specific set of INI files related to a bigger script I'm working on.
      I'm trying to create a verification script that checks the ini files structure and format and gives an error if they are not in expected format.
      What I did so far is create a couple of custom arrays, each with the list of Sections expected in the files and I use IniReadSectionNames in order to read the sections from the selected INI file and compare it to the array.
      It works fine, excepts it only gives an error if one or more of the sections in the custom array is missing, if they all exist but there are other additional sections that shouldn't be there it doesn't give an error and continue to open the editor screen.
      Here are the relevant part of my script:
      The Custom Verification Arrays:
      ;Creating Arrays for INI Verification Global $aSettingsVerify[7] $aSettingsVerify[1] = "Conversion" $aSettingsVerify[2] = "AIO" $aSettingsVerify[3] = "Data" $aSettingsVerify[4] = "Redist" $aSettingsVerify[5] = "Split" $aSettingsVerify[6] = "Autorun" Global $aDataVerify[6] $aDataVerify[1] = "Compression" $aDataVerify[2] = "Exclude" $aDataVerify[3] = "LangExclude" $aDataVerify[4] = "PreCommands" $aDataVerify[5] = "PostCommands" The IniReadSectionNames verification part:
      Case $OK If StringInStr($ActiveConfig, "Settings.ini") Then $CheckArray1 = IniReadSectionNames($ActiveConfig) $CheckArray2 = _ArrayCompare($aSettingsVerify, $CheckArray1) $CheckArray3 = UBound($CheckArray2, 1) If $CheckArray3 = 1 Then GUIDelete($ConfigStart) SettingsGUI() EndIf If $CheckArray3 > 1 Then WrongIni() EndIf EndIf If StringInStr($ActiveConfig, "Data") Then $CheckArray1 = IniReadSectionNames($ActiveConfig) $CheckArray2 = _ArrayCompare($aDataVerify, $CheckArray1) $CheckArray3 = UBound($CheckArray2, 1) If $CheckArray3 = 1 Then GUIDelete($ConfigStart) DataGUI() EndIf If $CheckArray3 > 1 Then WrongIni() EndIf EndIf The Function that performs the compare: (Found it in another thread on this forums somewhere by using Google Search)
      ;Compares Imported INI file with the Verification array Func _ArrayCompare(ByRef $a1, ByRef $a2) Local $nOldSize = UBound($a2) Local $a3[$nOldSize], $nNewSize = $nOldSize For $i = 0 To UBound($a1) - 1 For $j = 0 To $nOldSize - 1 If Not $a3[$j] And ($a1[$i] = $a2[$j]) Then $a3[$j] = 1 $nNewSize -= 1 EndIf Next Next Local $a4[$nNewSize], $j = 0 For $i = 0 To $nOldSize - 1 If Not $a3[$i] Then $a4[$j] = $a2[$i] $j += 1 EndIf Next Return $a4 EndFunc ;==>_ArrayCompare  
      Any way to make a check if there are sections other than the ones in the Verification Array and produce an error?
      Thanks

      Can you explain why my mouseclick don't work in my shockwave fullscreen.
       
      I know my syntax is ok, because it moves to coordinates, but this will only press 1 time, even that I want to press 5 times.
      How can that be?
