Help with Pausing

4 posts in this topic

I'm still learning as much as I can with AutoIt, and I need a command that can pause it until I press the button again...

I know how to completley stop the script, then in order to run it I have to run the script manually.

So if I could get a bit of code with it setting the hotkey along with the pause command, that'd be great.

Thanks,

Shicken

AutoItSetOption("TrayIconDebug", 1)

;Initialize variable
Global $Paused

;Set start state as "not paused"
$Paused = 0

;Show user that the script is NOT paused
ToolTip("Script is NOT paused")

;Press "Pause" to toggle the pause state
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "TogglePause")

;Body of your script
;You can remove this loop if you want
While 1
   Sleep(500)
WEnd

;Functions you need

Func TogglePause()
  ;Swap current state
   $Paused = NOT $Paused
   
   If $Paused Then
     ;Show user that the script is paused
      ToolTip("Script is paused")
      
     ;Pause the script
      Pause()
   Else
     ;Show user that the script is NOT paused
      ToolTip("Script is NOT paused")
   EndIf
EndFunc

Func Pause()
  ;Pause
   While $Paused
      Sleep(100)
   WEnd
EndFunc

$dummy MsgBox(64, "Script waiting", "Hit OK to unpause the script.")
