Hi,

Is it possible to to stop a script from running without closing the program? Example: Exit and ExitLoop closes the program.

Thank you for your help,

Maybe you need to reread your question assuming you haven't read it before. :)

Define Stop or do you mean you want the script to pause?

A little code might help. Right now your problem is pretty vague so hard to help you.

Maybe I'm defining and understanding stop wrong according to script writing.

I define stop as when the script is running and some data was not entered correctly and I need to stop the script not exit the script to make the changes and then continue running the script.

What are you making changes to? The information contained in variables? The source code? You still need to be more specific.

What are you making changes to? The information contained in variables? The source code? You still need to be more specific.

When the part of the script is running below if some data is entered wrong or not selected then instead of waiting for the script to continue running I would like to stop the script but not exit then make the corrections then continue running the script.

Do
                            $msg3 = GUIGetMsg()
                            Select
                                Case $msg3 = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                                    Exit
                                Case $msg3 = $btn_Next Or $msg3 = $btn_Previous
                                    If $msg3 = $btn_Previous Then
                                        $i = $i - 2
                                        _GUICtrlButton_Enable($btn_Previous, False);Disables Previous Button
                                    Else
                                    ;Call Function to Activate/maximize FF Inventory Management - \\Remote window
                                        winFFInv()
                                    ;Click Insert
                                    ; Click in FF Equipment Field
                                        MouseClick("left", 114, 135)
                                    ; Now that the Notepad window is active type some special characters
                                        Send($sCellValue3 & "{ENTER}");invpart & Equipment

You just repeated the same thing. What are you correcting? The data in variables? The data in whatever you are trying to automate? Gosh, I can't help you if you don't tell me anything.

Thank for your help Richard Robertson, I'm doing the best I know how. I do not understand what you are asking for because I'm not trying to correct the data in variables or anything else. The script works but I'm trying to add to the code as stated in my previous post.

Now you are getting rude and impolite so I'm asking you please do not reply to this post allow somone else to help me and if I do not get any other replies then I will have to figure it out myself.

Thank you for your help,

I have your Answer mate !

Example Function, With Example Hotkey

Lets say you had a Function called Main()

Global $running

HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "Main")

Func Main()

$running = NOT $running

While $running

<Do Events Here>

Wend

End Func

Simply Pressing your hotkey "Pause" in this example would Start AND Stop the function without exiting the Program.

Let's use your piece now for example.

Remeber to Declare Global $running, or Local $running either should work. Well it don't have to be $running exactly lol
it can be whatever you wish to make it ..you get it XD

Did you just say you want to make corrections to the code? That's what I was asking from the beginning. You can't make changes while the script is running.

I was being rude because I was frustrated. I cannot help if you do not describe a problem.

I think he means that he wants to correct changes made by the script in a different program ( like Excel ), things that the script did wrong and he wants to correct.

So you aren't really sure either? I've just been guessing here.

Richard Robertson,

No, I'm not trying to make corrections to my code!

I was being rude because I was frustrated. I cannot help if you do not describe a problem.

No, I do not have a problem with my code to describe!

So you aren't really sure either? I've just been guessing here.

Yes, I do know what I want. But, I do not know how to explain it so that you can understand what I want to do.

I apologize for my lack of knowledge coding in autoit3 and for getting you so frustrated. So, I'll continue to research this forum and the help file for answers.

Thank you for your help,

jfcby

I was asking nf67 if he/she understood what you were asking.

And you do have a problem with your code, jfcby. Otherwise you wouldn't be here asking for help, right? I'm sorry that I can't understand what you are asking. Don't apologize for not knowing AutoIt though. It's your written communication that is the problem. You don't appear to speak English as your first language and that is why I don't understand. Sorry I couldn't help.

Hi vblinko2008,

This is close to what I need. The only problem is that it continues to run non stop.

This is some code I've been trying to modify form the help file to work the way I need it to:

Global _msg3btn

HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "_msg3btn")

Func _msg3btn()     
        $Paused = NOT $Paused
        While $Paused
            sleep(100)
            ToolTip('Script is "Paused"',0,0)           
        WEnd
        ToolTip("")         
    EndFunc

This code when I continue begins at the same location in the script that it was at when paused.

In this portion of the script this is what I need it to do:

When this portion of the code is running and I click the Keyboard Pause button the script stops. But, when I restart the script instead of it continuing at the same location it paused in I need it to start at this location each time. Is this possible?

Dim $sCellValue1, $sCellValue2, $sCellValue3, $sCellValue4, $sCellValue6, $sCellValue7

Richard Robertson,

I was asking nf67 if he/she understood what you were asking.

I apologize for the misunderstanding.

And you do have a problem with your code, jfcby. Otherwise you wouldn't be here asking for help, right?

Wrong, I do not have any problems with my posted code above. I'm having a difficult time understanding how to add some code to make the current code work better and more efficient saving time.

I'm sorry that I can't understand what you are asking. Don't apologize for not knowing AutoIt though. It's your written communication that is the problem. You don't appear to speak English as your first language and that is why I don't understand. Sorry I couldn't help.

English is the only language I speak. Not knowing enough about AutoIt does make it hard to put into words how I want to add to my working code. That is the reason my written communication is difficult to understand and why I do not understand what you are asking.

Thank you for your help,

jfcby

Hi,

Script Add-on almost complete but not exactly what I want but close.

Since my original post I gained some knowledge about I need and as other has stated it is "Pause". Now, through researching this forum and the help file I've been able to insert some code to use a "HotSetKey" to pause my script.

The way the "HotSetKey" works now, where it pauses the script it un-pauses it at the same location. I need to specify the location where to restart the script. It can be done by moving that portion of the script to a function and then add it to my pause function.

When using a "For To Next" statement how can the HowSetKey be used to always begin at specific location. The location is specified below.

$sCellValue1 = StringTrimLeft(_ExcelReadCell($oExcel1, 2, 3), 7);bldgno
                    For $i = $nrowM To $lrowM;Loop
                        $sCellValue2 = _ExcelReadCell($oExcel1, $i, 2);serialno
                        $sCellValue3 = _ExcelReadCell($oExcel1, $i, 3);ffinvpart & Equipment
                        $sCellValue4 = _ExcelReadCell($oExcel1, $i, 4);description
                        $sCellValue6 = _ExcelReadCell($oExcel1, $i, 6);roomno
                        $sCellValue7 = _ExcelReadCell($oExcel1, $i, 7);extradesc or notes

I need this portion in a function but when I put it in a function the for statement repeats inserting the same data when the "HotSetKey" Pause is used.

Do
                            $msg3 = GUIGetMsg()
                            Select
                                Case $msg3 = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                                    Exit
                                Case $msg3 = $btn_Next Or $msg3 = $btn_Previous
                                    If $msg3 = $btn_Previous Then
                                        $i = $i - 2
                                        _GUICtrlButton_Enable($btn_Previous, False);Disables Previous Button                                    
                                    Else;if $msg3 = $btn_Next Then
                                    ;Call Function to Activate/maximize FF Inventory Management - \\Remote window
                                        winFFInv()
                                        Sleep(500)
                                    ;Click Insert
                                        Send("{F4}")
                                    ; Click in FF Equipment Field
                                        MouseClick("left", 114, 135)
                                    ; Now that the Notepad window is active type some special characters
                                        Send($sCellValue3 & "{ENTER}");invpart & Equipment
                                        Sleep(2000)
                                        Send($sCellValue1 & "-" & $sCellValue2 & "{ENTER 2}");serialno
                                        Sleep(2000)
                                        Send($sCellValue4 & "{ENTER 2}");description
                                        Sleep(2000)
                                        Send("U" & "{ENTER 7}");status
                                        Sleep(2000)
                                        Send("16" & "{ENTER 4}");shop
                                        Sleep(2000)
                                        Send($sCellValue1 & "{ENTER}");bldgno
                                        ;Closes Property Notes - \\Remote if opens
                                            Sleep(1000)                                     
                                            If WinExists("Property Notes - \\Remote") Then 
                                                WinActivate("Property Notes - \\Remote", "")
                                                Send("!C")
                                            EndIf
                                        
                                            Sleep(2000)
                                            Send($sCellValue6);loc

                                            If $sCellValue7 > "" Then
                                                Sleep(2000)
                                            ; Click the Extra Description Box
                                                MouseClick("left", 516, 210)
                                            ;Extra Description Box Text
                                                Send($sCellValue7)
                                                Sleep(2000)
                                                Send("!C{ENTER}")

                                                _GUICtrlButton_Enable($btn_Previous);Disables Previous Button
                                            EndIf
                                        EndIf
                                EndSelect
                            Until $msg3 = $btn_Next Or $msg3 = $btn_Previous

End portion needed in a function.

Next

Thank you for your help,
