Preventing Gui list box from crashing

2 posts in this topic

I have a gui with a simple list box that lists names of applications awaiting delivery. This is updated by the program once the requested applications arrive from the server pushing them out. My list box is updated by an internal adlib that advises the user of the status of the package being sent. The user does not need to update or click on the lists but they can as my script does not prevent them.

My issue is in testing if I click loads of times on the list boxes (inc right clicking) the program crashes. I guess this is because I am not telling the script what to do if a user clicks on the control as I am wanting to ignore any user input.

I can use the $ws_disabled which does the job and stops the user from clicking the controls therefore crashing the window. This however has an undesired affect on the colour and changes the listbox to be greyed out.

What I would like to achieve is to ignore any user input without disabling the listbox gui. OR disable and beable to change the colour.

I have omitted the script at this point as it is quite lengthy but I can include if someone wishes to trawl thru it ...

Thanks

Still struggling with this one. The only way I can get the window to stop crashing is to use the WS_disabled for the list box however this gives the undesired greyed out colour .

I have attached the code ...

;Stop 2 occurances of the script running
_Singleton(@ScriptName)
