Run Two Functions At Once Instead Of One At A Time

9 posts in this topic

While 1

MouseClick("left", 0, 186, 2, 2.5)

WEnd

Makes the mouse stay at the left side of the screen indefinitely

Send("Test Message Here")

Types in text

Is there any way to make the first happen while the second does instead of one at a time?

2 different scripts it can be done at the same time. AutoIt doesn't support MultiThreading... you might want to take a peak at AdlibEnable() in the helpfile... that may help you a bit.

See if this will do it for you

$Count = 0
While 1
$Count += 1
MouseClick("left", 0, 186, 2, 2.5)
If $Count = 1 Then
Send("Test Message Here")
Else
$Count = 2
EndIf
WEnd

Thsi should only send the Send("Test Message Here") the first time the loop runs, but will do it all from the same code block even if not at exactly the same time.

Since that's only doing it the first time the loop runs, why even have it in the loop? Why not just have it outside the loop and save the extra time dealing with variables.

Send ("test message")
While 1
    MouseClick ("left", 0, 186, 2, 2.5)
    Sleep (100)
WEnd

Added a tiny bit of sleep because that's a lot of clicking....

Good question. I'm guessing Arez seems to want to do it all in one call, although I have no idea why that would be necessary???? I'm also gyessing for some reason he doesn't want to send the test message until after the mouse pointer is frozen, which is why I put it in the loop and not first.

If the idea is to keep the mouse at the left of the screen would using _MouseTrap not be better than continual clicking. :)

I agree, but hey, he didn't ask ablut that only running th etwo at the same time and I figured he must have something going on at the left of his screen that makes him want to do that.

Not directly but its pretty easy to have one script call itself passing command line arguments. Your end up with 2 or more copies running and doing different things but everything is still contained in just one script.

Here is the first few lines from one of mine.

Select
    Case $CmdLine[0] = 0; no args then call with args
        $gamepid = Run(@AutoItExe & ' "' & @ScriptFullPath & '" games')
        $apppid = Run(@AutoItExe & ' "' & @ScriptFullPath & '" apps')
    Case $CmdLine[1] = 'games'; games arg so run games part
        findgames()
        Exit
    Case $CmdLine[1] = 'apps'; app arg so run apps part
        findapps()
        Exit
EndSelect

basically it calls itself with arguments. If when called, it has arguments, it then calls the proper function for that argument.
