AdlibEnable question

2 posts in this topic

I have another question. I have been messing around with the adlib function a little. Basically, Im having adlibenable("Func Name") at the beginning of a function, and then adlibdisable at the end of that function. What the adlibfunction does it looks for a color on the screen. If they color is not found, it goes and does something else, if it is found it just repeats the adlib until it is false.

Is this basically what the adlib function is supposed to be used for? I want it to check for that color every second or less during one of the functions, and I dont know if that is the best way to do it.

The function specified in AdLibEnable() will interrupt the rest of the script to run. It will also interrupt itself and run again, leading to recursion errors if your function takes too long to finish. So the function called by AdLib should be short and efficient. You can control the AdLib inside a function, but not the same function that AdLib is calling (recursion errors again). So this should work - _MyFunction() will return when AdLibFunc() reports finding the red pixel at 400/300:

Global $Test
_MyFunction()

Func _MyFunction()
     $Test = 0
     AdLibEnable("_AdLibFunc", 500)
     While 1
          If $Test Then ExitLoop
          Sleep(250)
     WEnd
EndFunc

Func _AdLibFunc()
     ; Pixel check to run every 500ms goes here
     Local $x = 400, $y = 300
     If PixelGetColor($x, $y) = 0xFF0000 Then $Test = 1
EndFunc
