Avoid script pausing

10 posts in this topic

I made a little script that opens an ie browser. While waiting for the window to show up i show a little labe saying something to the effect of "Wait please..."

Problem is sometime the script pauses on its on, show the little labe is stuck in the screen. I dont want it to be the user that has to go to the taskbar icon and unpause the script.

Anyone know how i can totally avoid the script pausing? or detect the script pause event, and override it to just continue processing?

I would use Smoke_N's metode but here is another function which can be used, break()

That's a good point, that actually would be easier if you are only wanting to do it periodically throughout your script... Edited by SmOke_N

Opt('TrayMenuMode', 1)

first of all thank you for your quick reply

from my investigation what that does is remove the default options from the menu.

my question is wether its stops the script from pausing for any strange reason

What sort of strange reasons? Sorry, completely misread your initial post. You mean your script is actually paused itself, not waiting on some stalled connection or something? Meaning, if you unpause it through the systraay autoit icon, you see it continue in some way? Edited by SadBunny

i wasnt able to identify the reason it does that, but fact is the script is pausing and if the user clicks the unpasue on the systray it will continue working

There's no way to test this, but the only 2 places I can see where you'd have this issue is RunWait() and _IELoadWait(), those would pause for whatever period of time it took for them to finish completing their task.
