Infinite loop not looping

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I want to automate page refreshing in Firefox but script runs for a moment and exits immediately. No msg boxes, no window activation. CLASS value is copied from AutoItWindowInfo. What I've done wrong?
 

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Global $N = 0

HotKeySet ( "{Esc}", Quit() )

While 1
   Sleep ( 10000 )
   Refresh()
WEnd

Func Refresh()
   $ActivateMozilla = WinActivate ( ("[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]", "" )
   If $ActivateMozilla <> 0 Then
   Send ("{F5}")
   $N= $N + 1
   MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "Refreshed Mozilla " & $N & "times" )
   Else
   MsgBox ( 0, "Error", "Error code " & $ActivateMozilla )
   EndIf
EndFunc

Func Quit()
   Exit
EndFunc

    $hActivateMozilla = WinActivate("[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]")

        $N = $N + 1
        MsgBox(0, "Test", "Refreshed Mozilla " & $N & " times")
    Else
        MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error code " & $hActivateMozilla)
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>Refresh

Func Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>Quit

EDIT

$ActivateMozilla = WinActivate ( ("[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]", "" )

==> error: unbalanced paranthesis
