Keep ToolTip Alive during script

Recommended Posts

zuladabef

Is there a way to keep the ToolTip alive during the execution of a script, instead of having the ToolTip only active during a sleep?  So that ToolTip can act as a way to return info.

Example:

Tooltip("Script Has Begun" & @CRLF)
_Func1()
_Func1()

Func _Func1()
    ;~ Do Stuff
    Tooltip(& "Func1 completed successfully" & @CRLF)
EndFunc

Func _Func2()
    ;~ Do Stuff
    Tooltip(& "Func2 completed successfully" & @CRLF)
EndFunc

In case you miss it, you need the code Melba23 posted, it works great doing what I think you want.

I see.  So the only way to do it, is to keep the script within a While loop?

that's a preferred method. best method to intercept all the messages you need to handle. I would do it this way as well.

The tooltip should stay up as long as the script is running, or until you use ToolTip("").

A Tooltip will appear until the script terminates or ToolTip("") is called.

From the help file.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
