First Scripts

Recommended Posts

Here's my first actual script I made my next step is making it into a GUI

Global $start
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Start_Up")
HotKeySet("{1}", "Stop_Now")

While 1
    if $start==True Then
        Send("Start and Stop works")
        Sleep(1000)
    EndIf
    ToolTip("")
    Sleep ("")
WEnd

Func Start_Up()
    $start = True
    ;Return $start
EndFunc

Func Stop_Now()
    $start = False
EndFunc


Its really simple hopefully it helps on lookers

IcantCodeHelp,

When you post code in future please use Code tags - see here how to do it.  Then you get a scrolling box and syntax colouring as you can see above now I have added the tags. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Maybe I can make it up to you.  
Since your being gracious enough to put your code out there for others, let me help as well by pointing out a few things about the code you posted.  

Global $start
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Start_Up")
HotKeySet("{1}", "Stop_Now")

While 1
    if $start==True Then ; == is useful when comparing strings with mixed case, in this case = works fine
                         ; or just If $start Then
        Send("Start and Stop works")  ; Send where? - this could be dangerous
        Sleep(1000)                   ; also be careful when using Send at the same time as Hotkeyset
                                      ; strange interactions can occur
    EndIf
    ToolTip("") ; Doesn't do anything here
    
    Sleep ("")  ; "" evaluates to 0, so also not useful - if this was meant to slow down the loop it
                ; wont work use an integer with a nominal magnitude
WEnd

Func Start_Up()
    $start = True
    ;Return $start
EndFunc

Func Stop_Now()
    $start = False
EndFunc

Regarding the Send and Autohotkey interaction, see what happens if you change your message to “Start and Stop works 1 time”.

G’day :)

Through trial and error and reading the scripts presented to me I've made a new simple script 

Global $TheText = InputBox("Hi its me", "Paste sleep time below", "")
While 1
ToolTip("You Can change my sleep time through input")
Sleep($TheText)
WEnd

For any on lookers or anyone new to programming my issue was not slowing down take your time

IcantCodeHelp,

I have moved your post 2 above from Chat and merged it with this thread as Chat is NOT for AutoIt coding threads. I suggest that from now on you keep all your code snippets in this thread - if you post them elsewhere they are likely to disappear.

That seems to be a real issue with you. I believe you have been spoken to by everyone on the Mod staff now; not sure how we can explain things any more simply to you.
