While Not question

Recommended Posts

While Not _Login()
    _Initial_Check()
WEnd

Func _Login()
    Local $FLAG_LOGIN = _Password_Check()

    If @error = 1 Then
        _Close_Application()
    ElseIf @error = 2 Then
        _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", $FLAG_LOGIN)
        Return False
    Else ; $FLAG_LOGIN return TRUE
        _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", "Access granted!")
        Return True
    EndIf
EndFunc

 I do have a question regarding the While Not Loop.

According to the code I post above, While Not _Login() is similar to While _Login() = False right?

Which mean when _Login() return False and it will execute the _Initial_Check() function, but somehow the logic is not right and I also don't understand why While Not _Login() loop is executed as expected.

What I wanna achieve is when _Login() is not success, which mean return False then it continue loop the _Login() function until it return True

When It return True only execute the _Initial_Check() function.

Please kindly clarify. Thanks

You could try something like the following:

Local $bLogin = False
While $bLogin = False
    $bLogin = _Login()
    Sleep(500) ;~ Sleep 500ms and try again
WEnd
_Initial_Check()

 

I think I know why the logic wrong and the wrong logic is works as expected.

While Not _Login()
    _Initial_Check()
WEnd

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $GUI_CLOSE_BUTTON, $BTN_EXIT
            _GUIDisable($GUI_MAIN, 0, 30)
            _Close_Application()
        Case $GUI_MINIMIZE_BUTTON
            GUISetState(@SW_MINIMIZE, $GUI_MAIN)
        Case $BTN_LOCKED
            _Lock_Folder()
        Case $BTN_UNLOCKED
            _Unlock_Folder()
        Case $OVERRIDE_FOLDER
            _GUIDisable($GUI_MAIN, 0, 30)
            _Override_Folder()
            _GUIDisable($GUI_MAIN)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _Login()
    Local $FLAG_LOGIN = _Password_Check()

    If @error = 1 Then
        _Close_Application()
    ElseIf @error = 2 Then
        _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", $FLAG_LOGIN)
        Return False
    Else
        _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", "Access granted!")
        Return True
    EndIf
EndFunc

Firstly, While Not _Login() is equivalent to While _Login() = False.

So if _Login() returne False, it go into the While Loop and execute _Initial_Check() but the _Initial_Check() does not return any True/False. Therefore, it continue loop the _Login() function.
So if _Login() return True, it will exit the While Loop and execute the GUI setting.

I am finally understand of it. Thanks lot.

But then I modify my code into like this instead,

While Not _Login()
    _Login()
WEnd

_Initial_Check()

;GUI SETTINGS

When I enter few times wrong password it show Access Denied as expected, but after that I enter correct password it show Access granted and loop 1 more time of _Login()?
As I have tested out, I using Enter Key and Mouse Click result are different.
Enter Key: Result as expected
Mouse Click: Few Time wrong, then enter correct one. It show Access Granted and ask for password again
Any idea?

This should do what you want...

Yeah, logically it should do what I want.

But when the application prompt for password to login, I use mouse click the LOGIN instead of using ENTER key,

then it show "Access Granted" and re-prompt the password for login again.

      Hi, 
      This is my very first post in this forum and am also new with Autoit programming so be easy on me.
      Below is the code that I am trying to get the index of the item selected. No problem getting the text.
      Case $listEdition   ; handle of the list             local $index=0             $item=GUICTRLRead($listEdition)    ; This will return the text in the list             ; ==============   The loop below always fails  ==================             ; Meaning _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always return FALSE. WHY ???????              For $i = 0 To $editionArray[0] - 1   ; The content of the list in an array where editionArray[0] contains total count of items                 If _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) Then                     $index = $i                     exitloop                 EndIf              Next              ;===================================================             ConsoleWrite( "Select Edition:     " & $item & "  index: " & $index & @CR) ....... Please look at the comments in the code & the pix attached.
      _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always returns FALSE.
      Another problem is on the list. It also populate  the total count of items from the Array. How can I skip this item from populating to the list ?.
      Please advise and thanks

      is it possible to make a wall chams in rainbow six siege using autoit scripts? tell me please and how .

      Hi, I am using excel as input media for my program. The excel file (i tried with .xls, .xlsx and .xlsm format) has inputs which the autoit script reads during the run and performs few calculations. Some times (not always), after the run, when i try to open the excel file manually, the file doesnt open at all in excel. see the screenshot attached. However, if the execute the autoit script, the scripts still reads the existing data from that excel and performs the calcs. I copied the excel file to another computer and there too, it doesnt open.  So, after this, i cannot edit the excel forever (if i need to change any inputs). It is only this particular file that got affected. other excel files works normal.  What could be the problem here.  please help as this is a new challenge for me during my program development.

      Hi everyone!

      I'm using AutoIt for several years now and I really get the hang of it!
      I'm quite the curious OCD perfectionist kind of guy, so I can't help wondering..
      what would be the best way to program stuff for the compiler / interpreter / scripting engine?
      We're talking about the inner workings of the AutoIt's core here, and how to give it as less friction as possible but also take care of the machine running the script.
      For example,
      Imagine a script where we would constantly have to assign a Boolean value to a variable:
      ; A: local $bool = false $bool = true $bool = true $bool = false ; B: local $bool = false check(true) check(true) check(false) func check($b) if $bool = $b then return $bool = $b endfunc In this case, would it be better to just overwrite (A) the variable or first check if we really need to (B)?
      What would be best for the computers memory if it had to do this for a year non stop?
      Another example, imagine you're writing a function with an if statement.
      If you would look under the hood of AutoIt, what would be the best way to give your computer as less work / code nesting stack filling as possible:
      ; A: func decide($b_Input) if $b_Input then ;do something else ;do something else endif endfunc ; B: func decide($b_Input) if $b_Input then ;do something return endif ;do something else endfunc Last one for now:
      ; A: while 1 ; do stuff wend ; B: while true ; do stuff wend Isn't AutoIt taking an extra step in converting 1 to a Boolean in example (A)?
      Or is it the other way around and does the (B) way make AutoIt first convert a keyword (true or false) to a numerical value (0 or 1).
      I think this kinda detail stuff is quite interesting, makes me wonder how AutoIt converts and runs our code.
      What are your opinions on this topic?
      Any coders who know more about the inner workings of AutoIt?
      Any people like me who ask themselves similar questions (with examples)?

      Let me know! 😉
