Interesting observations on **GetMsg() blocking functions


Recommended Posts

#NoTrayIcon

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Global $hWnd = GUICreate('')
GUISetState()
GUISetOnEvent(-3,Quit)

local $i=0
Do
   WinSetTitle($hWnd,'',$i)
   $i+=1
Until TrayGetMsg()=-3

Func Quit()
     Exit
EndFunc

This seems to tick roughly every 16ms, a default Idle rate.

This also seems to tick every 16ms when idle, but if you start moving your mouse or generate window messages in some way, they increment much faster based on how quickly AutoIt comes out of idle.

 

 

Conclusion: the **GetMsg() functions are blocking but does come out of hibernation at a guaranteed idle interval
