Two Loops?

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Can you run two loops at once? (Example: While)

I'm currently trying to test this code out but its not working properly, infact it would close right after being opened.

Heres the code

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Test", 500, 300)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

$Menu_File = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&File")
$Test = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Test", $Menu_File)
$Switch1 = 0

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $Test
            $Switch1 = 1
    EndSelect
WEnd

While $Switch1 = 1
    $B1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Test", 5, 5)
    $B2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Test2", 20, 20)
    $B3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete", 50, 50)
    If $msg = $B3 Then
    GUICtrlDelete($B1)
    GUICtrlDelete($B2)
    GUICtrlDelete($B3)
    EndIf
WEnd

No, You cannot run two loops simultaneously without running multiple scripts. Autoit is not Multi-threaded, and probably will never be... at least not in the near future.

you can however edit your code like this, and it should work ok:

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $Test
            $Switch1 = 1
    EndSelect
    If $Switch1 = 1 Then
        $B1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Test", 5, 5)
        $B2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Test2", 20, 20)
        $B3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete", 50, 50)
        If $msg = $B3 Then
            GUICtrlDelete($B1)
            GUICtrlDelete($B2)
            GUICtrlDelete($B3)
        EndIf
    EndIf
WEnd

Problem with your version is it will keep creating new CtrlGui as long as var = 1 and its impossible to use the textbox

But (Had autoit been able to run 2 loops at once) yours would have been doing the same thing....

I simply was demonstrating how to edit the loops to function as 1, I never tested any of it.

A classic case for GuiOnEventMode:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Global $hGUI, $Menu_File, $Test, $B1, $B2, $B3
Opt("GuiOnEventMode", 1)

GUICreate("Test", 500, 300)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Quit")
$Menu_File = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&File")
$Test = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Test", $Menu_File)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Menu_Test")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func _Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Quit

Func _Menu_Test()
    $B1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Test", 5, 5)
    $B2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Test2", 20, 20)
    $B3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete", 50, 50)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Button_Delete")
EndFunc   ;==>_Menu_Test

Func _Button_Delete()
    GUICtrlDelete($B1)
    GUICtrlDelete($B2)
    GUICtrlDelete($B3)
EndFunc   ;==>_Button_Delete

Thanks PSaltyDS. Never tried programming it in OnEvent, it looks so confusing...
