Timer Jump Function

Recommended Posts

Champak

I'm trying to make a function that will skip portions of the function for a certain amount of time if a hotkey is pressed without using sleep...because it ties up the GUI. So I came up with the following but don't know how to really implement it. My problem is the timer freezing up the GUI. Is this possible, or am I just going to have to stick with the sleep function.

HotKeySet("{ENTER}","StartSkip")

Func whatever()
        $Jump_POINotify = ""
        If $Elapsed > 0 Then
            ConsoleWrite("Key pressed, now jumping")
            $Jump_POINotify = "POINotify"
        EndIf
        If $Jump_POINotify <> "POINotify" Then
            ConsoleWrite("Not jumping")
            ;Whatever I put as my script here, this is what will be jumped for 10 sec. if I hit the enter key.
        EndIf
EndFunc

Func StartSkip()
    $Elapsed = 0
    $StartTime = TimerInit()
    Do
        $i = $i - 1
        $Elapsed = TimerDiff($StartTime) / 1000
        $Elapsed = Round($Elapsed)
    Until $Elapsed = 10
    $Elapsed = 0
EndFunc

Thanks.

untested but something like this should work:

HotKeySet("{ENTER}", "StartSkip")
Global $StartTime=0
;
Func whatever()
    $Jump_POINotify = ""
    If $StartTime <> 0 Then $Elapsed = TimerDiff($StartTime)/1000
    If $Elapsed > 0  And $Elapsed < 10 Then
        ConsoleWrite("Key pressed, now jumping")
        $Jump_POINotify = "POINotify"
    EndIf
    If $Jump_POINotify <> "POINotify" Then
        ConsoleWrite("Not jumping")
;Whatever I put as my script here, this is what will be jumped for 10 sec. if I hit the enter key.
    EndIf
EndFunc ;==>whatever
;
Func StartSkip()
    $StartTime = TimerInit()
EndFunc ;==>StartSkip
