How to do this without a GoTo Function?

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I know the new functions are so much better, but I miss the simplicity of the GoTo function =).

I'm having a slight problem and I have no idea how to go around it without the use of GoTo. My new script is a little buggy, for some reason sometimes it misses key presses. It's very rare but I cannot have any mistakes as they could result in the wrong key press sequence.

Anyway below is an example of want I want to use to check if the action took place. The action key is pressed resulting in the movement of the mouse highlighting the next button. I want to use this mouse movement to my advantage and use it to check if the action took place. Ok here how I'm doing this.

Action

Send("{ENTER}");
check();

Check

Func check()
$counter = 0;
Do
Sleep(100);
$pos = MouseGetPos();
$counter = $counter + 1;

If $counter = 15 Then
exit;
EndIf

Sleep(100);
Until $pos[0] = 269 AND $pos[1] = 63;
$counter = 0;
EndFunc

The above will press ENTER and check if the mouse has moved as a result of a succesful key press. If the mouse has moved, the script will continue. If not then the script will exit.

I want to go one more step with this. Instead of exiting the script, I want it to re-do the action. So if the key press is missed, it'll try again and then and only then after a 2nd unsuccesful attempt I want it to exit.

If I could use the GoTo function, an unsucessfull attempt would just go back before the Action and run it a 2nd time but without it I don't know how to continue. I have an idea but I don't know how to go about doing this. If I can get the script to remember the action (store it in memory) and then be able to use the last stored action in my check function, it would be able to redo the last action.

Any ideas how I would be able to store the wanted action into memory in order to use it later in the script?

Take a look at the ContinueLoop keyword as well.
