Recommended Posts


is there a way to have the script to be paused?

for example i know this is how to quit it

Func MyExit()
EndFunc  ;==>MyExit

You could try this....

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

Func TogglePause()

$Paused = Not $Paused

While $Paused


ToolTip('Script is "Paused"', 0, 0)



EndFunc ;==>TogglePause

Here is a way to pause your script using a HotKey:

HotKeySet("p", "Pause")

$Pause = False

While 1

Func Pause()
    $Pause = Not $Pause
    If $Pause Then
        TrayTip("", "I am paused", 3)
        TrayTip("", "I am running", 3)
    Until Not $Pause

The TrayTips are just for show - you can remove the whole If...EndIf section when you are happy it works.

As to making it work on 2 scripts at once - the help file says: "If two AutoIt scripts set the same HotKeys, you should avoid running those scripts simultaneously. (The second script cannot capture the hotkey unless the first script terminates or unregisters the key prior to the second script setting the hotkey.)" So you would have to use another method.
