Pausing a script

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to pause a running script via hitting a key and allowing you to let it pickup where it left off by hitting another key? Is that some major coding feat or is there a simple pause cmd that I am just not seeing in the docs.

Thanks

Try an AdLib function and a toggle function.

Dim $pause = 0
HotKeySet("{pause}","PauseIt")
AdLibEnable("_IsPaused",250)
.
.
.

Func PauseIt(ByRef $pause)
   If $pause = 0 then $pause = 1
   If $pause = 1 then $pause = 0
EndFunc

Func _IsPaused(ByRef $pause)
   If $pause = 1 then
      Do
         Sleep(50)
      Until $pause = 0
   EndIf
EndFunc

This code is untested, and may not work as expected. This was just out of the top of my head.

It's already built in .. all you need to do is click on the icon in the system tray! This will pause your script - and to un-pause it, just un-check the "Paused" option.

Couldn't be simpler :)

True, but in some fullscreen applications (such as City of Heros) one cannot alt-tab out, and one cannot summon the toolbar/tray to click the icon. Some form of anti-cheat to keep people from running bots or scripts. Doesn't stop me...I just use a hotkey to keep my scripts paused (in a sleep(500) loop) until I need them.

In this case, one would have to simulate a control click to the tray on the correct icon. I honestly don't know if it's possible to do this in a fullscreen app.
