Okay to use Adlib in OnEvent mode?

Recommended Posts

I've got app that runs predominantly in OnEvent mode (the exceptions are during pop-up style mini-GUIs, when I don't want the normal event handlers to operate). I've registered an Adlib function to periodically run the "main" functionality. I did this to avoid spending too long in any event handler: the event handler sets variables that are tested in the "main" adlib func and processed there.

My problem is that the adlib function is never invoked. But before embarking on a debugging project to fix this I though I would simply ask if adlib funcs are compatible with OnEvent mode.  If there are not, I've got to find some other method to trigger the main func.

They are compatible with each other, I've used AdLib function in an OnEvent style script many times.

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.
