Need some pointers, New here

4 posts in this topic

hi guys,

i need some help here. hope someone here can give me some pointers.

i am quite new to this programming thing. just would like to pick up someting new. just hope the experts here can give me some pointers so that i can learn on the way.

ok, i have written a short simple program after reading some threads and figuring out. basically, this program is suppose to start when i press F7 and stop when i press F6 again. when the program starts, it will press 1 and 2 with 1 sec interval each.

can anyone correct my program?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Dim $start

HotKeySet("F7","StartLoop"); when F7 pressed, the loop will start

Func StartLoop()

$start=1 ; setting the condition

EndFunc

HotKeySet("F6","QuitLoop"); when F6 is pressed, the loop will stop

Func QuitLoop()

$start=0 ; setting the condition

EndFunc

While $Start=1; Start looping continuously until button press

Send("1"); 1 is pressed

Sleep(100); paused for 1 sec

Send("2") ; 2 is pressed

Sleep(100); paused for 1 sec

Wend;

use the code box it makes it easier to read. Why do u include gui constants unless i missed somthing i don't think you use them any where. I would declare $start globally, also your script will open and close as soon as u run it because it has nothing to do since $start = "" not 1. I would look at the pause command in the help file and replace the sleep in the pause command with your key pressing code. If any of that was unclear just ask and ill try to explain it better.

More standardized formatting, with the functions at the bottom. Removed the unused #include. Fixed the While/WEnd loop to be functional. Fixed the Sleep() delays to be in seconds (note the parameter is in milliseconds). Added a short Sleep() to the While/WEnd loop to keep from using 100% of CPU time. Added ESC to exit.:

Global $start

HotKeySet("F7", "StartLoop"); when F7 pressed, the loop will start
HotKeySet("F6", "QuitLoop"); when F6 is pressed, the loop will stop
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Quit") ; when ESC is pressed, exit the script

While 1
    If $start Then ; Start looping continuously until button press
        Send("1"); 1 is pressed
        Sleep(1000); paused for 1 sec
        Send("2") ; 2 is pressed
        Sleep(1000); paused for 1 sec
    EndIf
    Sleep(20)
WEnd

Func StartLoop()
    $start = 1 ; setting the condition
EndFunc   ;==>StartLoop

Func QuitLoop()
    $start = 0 ; setting the condition
EndFunc   ;==>QuitLoop

Func _Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Quit
