Simple toggle function not turning off


Recommended Posts

HotKeySet("+m", "Bridge")

$bridge = False

Func Bridge()
    $bridge = Not $bridge
    If $bridge = True Then
        Send("{CTRLDOWN}")
        Send("{s down}")
    Else
        Send("{s up}")
        Send("{CTRLUP}")
    EndIf
EndFunc

While 1
    If $bridge = True Then
        Sleep(2000)
        MouseClick("right")
    EndIf
WEnd

When i press "SHIFT + M" the keypresses and mouseclicks are being executed, but when i press "SHIFT + M" again to turn it off, it won't stop. any ideas what is going wrong here?

works for me. Maybe there are multiple instances of the script running (as you don't have a kill switch). Did you kill the running instance via task manager after every test?

BTW: You can "debug" it with MsgBox like so.
 

#include <Constants.au3>

MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Bridge Tool", "Start")

HotKeySet("+m", "Bridge")

$bridge = False

Func Bridge()
    $bridge = Not $bridge
    If $bridge = True Then
        Send("{CTRLDOWN}")
        Send("{s down}")
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Bridge Tool", "bridge = True")
    Else
        Send("{s up}")
        Send("{CTRLUP}")
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Bridge Tool", "bridge = False")
    EndIf
EndFunc

While 1
    If $bridge = True Then
        Sleep(2000)
        MouseClick("right")
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Bridge Tool", "in while loop ...")
    EndIf
WEnd

CTRL and S are still being held down by the script, so when you press SHIFT+M again you're really pressing CTRL+SHIFT+M. Try a hotkey with no modifiers to enable/disable instead.

you are right!  I modified the script for my quick test :-)
