2 simultaneaous loops possible?

Recommended Posts

Cusem

Hi all, I have the following code (just a portion):

What it does is check if there are files in a certain folder and if there are files, those files will be parsed by the HHParser function(not posted). Then the script is idle for 60 seconds and starts all over again.

This all works fine.

I also have a GUI which is enabled by a hotkey. If I fire up the GUI right now, the posted below portion of the script will be "paused", since there is a [While 1][WEnd] loop in the code for the GUI to.

Is there a way to keep the code below running even though I am starting another [While 1][WEnd] loop for the button-trapping of the gui?

While 1
    If $parsechk = 1 Then $search = FileFindFirstFile($hh_everestpath & "*.*")

    If $parsechk = 1 Then
        While 1
            $fileparse = FileFindNextFile($search) 
            If @error Then ExitLoop
            HHParser($fileparse)
            GUICtrlSetData($parsedinput, $parsedfiles)
        WEnd
    EndIf
    
    If $parsechk = 1 Then
        $timera = TimerInit()
        While 1
            Sleep(100)
            If TimerDiff($timera) > (1000 * 60) Then ExitLoop
        WEnd
    EndIf
WEnd

Use GuiOnEventMode instead of a GuiGetMsg() loop for your GUI. Your script can go back to what it was doing and will be interrupted if there are configured GUI events.

Thank you PsaltyDS.

At this moment I worked out the problem by placing the $msg = GuiGetMsg() within the first loop (posted in the first post), since i didn't wan't to rewrite a lot in the script, but thank you for the tip. I'll look into it.

If that woks, that's good enough! :)

The more general problem with it is that your GUI is only as responsive as THAT loop now, and the GUI doesn't work at all if you exit THAT loop. If the loop is pretty fast and you don't need the GUI outside of it then no harm done, but that is why I would push GuiOnEventMode when you rewrite someday, or for your next script.

Well, eventually I did started rewriting the script in order to use OnEvent's.

With the GuiGetMsg, the script was lagging a bit and the GuiCtrlSetOnEvent's really do work smoother.

Only one thing, I used to have code like:

Case $msg = $Button_1
     TableReorder(1)
Case $msg = $Button_2
     TableReorder(2)

etc.

But GuiCtrlSetOnEvent($Button_1, "TablReorder(1)") does not work. Is there a way to give variables to the function when calling the function through GuiCtrlSetOnEvent?

And also, when not using OnEvents yet, I had code like this:

Case $msg = $parsecheckbox And BitAND(GuiCtrlRead($parsecheckbox), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED

and

Case $msg = $radio1 And BitAND(GUICtrlRead($radio1), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED

How can I get these things to work with OnEvent commands?

I tried

GUICtrlSetOnEvent($parsecheckbox AND BitAND(GuiCtrlRead($parsecheckbox), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED, "HHParserOn")

But this doesn't seem to work.

You can't pass any parameters at all in the function called by the event. But there are certain macros that carry useful info like @GUI_CTRLID, @GUI_CTRLHANDLE, and @GUI_WINHANDLE:

GuiCtrlSetOnEvent($Button_1, "TablReorder")
GuiCtrlSetOnEvent($Button_2, "TablReorder")

GUICtrlSetOnEvent($parsecheckbox, "HHParserOn")

Func TablReorder()
      Switch @GUI_CTRLID
            Case $Button_1
                  ; Do button 1 stuff
            Case $Button_2
                  ; Do button 2 stuff
      EndSwitch
EndFunc

Func HHParserOn()
      If BitAND(GuiCtrlRead($parsecheckbox), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
            ; Do checked stuff
      Else
            ; Do unchecked stuff
      EndIf
EndFunc

:)

Edit: Forgot to address second part in the code.
