How can I make two functions work simulanteously?

9 posts in this topic

I'm writing a script to play a game for me, and the code is getting a bit long (for me). Is there a way I can, say, keep checking something with function A while function B is at work?

Thanks!

you can't. autoit is not multithreaded, so I suggest combining your functions into one.

sharrakor,

There is the possibility of using AdLib. This lets you run a specified function at regular specified intervals while your script is running. Of course, as Tomb has pointed out, you can only run one function at a time, so your main script is paused while the AdLib called function is doing its thing. But it will resume as soon as AdLib returns.

Have a look in the Help file and see if AdLib might be the answer.

Thanks for the info.

For languages that are multi threaded, is it difficult to do? Is C multithreaded?

Autoit can multithread. Check Multithreading again topic.

You have to set up your own message loop, au3 msg loop

does not work if you want GUI stuff. I used DialogBoxIndirectParam DLL

call to run 2 windows simulanteously and it works fine.

You click on either window and a message comes up

showing the window pointer.(handle).

I would play with it, see what you get.

You can write each function in a seperate AU3 file,

and then run both files..

Is there any way to communicate between those 'instances' rather than using files? Global variables? Queues? Occurences?

TIA!

LuI,

Look at this thread. It offers a way to get your 2 scripts communicating. I have played with a bit before and it worked well.
