hi guys..im kinda newb to autoit and made a script (its very basic) and nid help with it

i was just wondering if u guys tell mi a statement that is paused until activation by a hot key, meaning that when i doublecick the script, it just does nothing until i press a hotkey to start it.

heres my script

Global $Paused

HotKeySet("{PRINTSCREEN}", "TogglePause")

Func TogglePause()

$Paused = NOT $Paused

While $Paused

WEnd

EndFunc

While 1

Send("{LEFT down}")

Send("{SPACE}")

Sleep(1300)

Send("{SPACE}")

Sleep(2000)

Send("{LEFT up}")

Send("{RIGHT}")

Sleep(2000)

Send("{RIGHT down}")

Sleep(5000)

Send("{SPACE}")

Send("{UP down}")

Sleep(2000)

Send("{UP up}")

Send("{SPACE}")

Sleep(1300)

Send("{SPACE}")

Sleep(2000)

Send("{RIGHT up}")

Sleep(5000)

WEnd

most of the statements i got help from the help option...

reli appreciate if u guys could help mi...=D

Hi,

what about

HotKeySet("{F2}", "DoIt")
HotKeySet("{F3}", "End")

while 1 
    sleep(1000)
wend

Func DoIt()
While 1
Send("{LEFT down}")
Send("{SPACE}")
Sleep(1300)
Send("{SPACE}")
Sleep(2000)
Send("{LEFT up}")
Send("{RIGHT}")
Sleep(2000)
Send("{RIGHT down}")
Sleep(5000)
Send("{SPACE}")
Send("{UP down}")
Sleep(2000)
Send("{UP up}")
Send("{SPACE}")
Sleep(1300)
Send("{SPACE}")
Sleep(2000)
Send("{RIGHT up}")
Sleep(5000)
WEnd
EndFunc

Func End()
    Exit(0)
EndFunc

Hope that helps :lmao:

So long,

Here's another way you could do it:

Global $Paused = 0

HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "SetPause")

While 1
    If $Paused = 0 Then
        ; Do Stuff
    EndIf
WEnd

Func SetPause()
    If $Paused = 0 Then
        $Paused = 1
    Else
        $Paused = 0
    EndIf
EndFunc

To shorten it? It's only 4 lines of code not counting the neccessary Func/EndFunc?

Func TogglePause()
    $Paused = NOT $Paused
    While $Paused
        Sleep(100);<<< very important not to over work your cpu
    WEnd
EndFunc
