it worked 5 seconds ago! >_<

5 posts in this topic

i'm poking the gui part of the help file.

behold, a piece of code:

$msg=GuiGetMsg()

select
case $msg=$GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
exitloop
case $msg=$button_1
run("notepad.exe"
send("you want to kill me, you bastard?! D:")
exitloop
endselect

this is part of the help file (a bit tweaked though). IN THEORY, this should work flawlessly.

and yet, autoit whines that $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE was either not declared or declared earlier.

this, of course, makes me quite upset because the help file is officially not helpful on the topic.

how do i fix this issue?

also, copying the help file gives the same result. "$GUI_EVENT_CLOSE was declared earlier, blah blah blah blah."

Looking at the examples in the help file you will find that the files that have to be #included are always there.

Are you trying to say that you didn't have any of that code in a While loop? If thats the case then it would never work.

While 1
   $Msg = GuiGetMsg()
   Switch $Msg
      Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
         exitloop
      Case $button_1
         run("notepad.exe")
         send("you want to kill me, you bastard?! D:")
         exitloop
   EndSwitch
WEnd

BTW, your Send() probably won't work either since you have to wait for the window before you can send anything to it.
