To Kill a Script

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Well, normally this a question I wouldn't take seriously, but I cant seem to close out of my script...

HotKeySet("S","start")
HotKeySet("X","kill")
SplashTextOn("Load","LOADING LIST")
$list=FileRead("list.txt")
SplashOff()
While 1
Sleep(1000)
WEnd
Func start()
Send($list)
EndFunc
Func kill()
Exit
EndFunc

I'm trying to close it in the middle of sending "list.txt", but it insists on finishing before closing, so how would I go about aborting this?

Thanks

Once the command is executed it can not be stopped, try this:

HotKeySet("S","start")
HotKeySet("X","kill")

SplashTextOn("Load","LOADING LIST")
$list = FileRead("list.txt")
$ListArr = StringSplit($list, "")
SplashOff()

While 1
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func start()
    For $i = 1 To $ListArr[0]
        Send($ListArr[$i])
    Next
EndFunc

Func kill()
    Exit
EndFunc

It will be slower, but this i think the only way.

MsCreatoR's idea is definately the first one that came to mind, but to present an alternative...

You call an external program to send it. Using something like this:

;MAIN FILE
HotKeySet("S","start")
HotKeySet("X","kill")
SplashTextOn("Load","LOADING LIST")

SplashOff()

While 1
Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func start()
    Run("sendMyFile.exe")
EndFunc

Func kill()
    ProcessClose("sendMyFile.exe")
EndFunc

Yeah, I avoid it myself. Running two programs can be wasteful or messy. Personally, as I said at the beginning of the post, I'd probably do what MsCreatoR said, but I was just providing another option because each option has situations it would work well in, and situations that it would work poorly at.

I would create a GUI, add a Pause button, do the For..Next statement as MsCreatoR said and add inside the statement a $msg = GUIGetMsg()

Good luck with the project,
