TrayGetMsg is still waiting

7 posts in this topic

Hey,

I searched in the forum for an answer, but I failed.

I wrote a script which should login into a website

and notify me if there is a change.

To make changes on the running program I wanted to

control it with the help of the trayicon and it's

buttons. The script works fine and do his job, also

the changes work.

But sometimes my program freeze until I go over the

trayicon with the mouse cursor. Just go over it, no

clicking, just go over it and it continues its work.

I can not explain why it freeze. Maybe someone can

help me out of it.

I use WinXP with newest updates and AutoIt v3.3.0.0.

What's with the huge list of options, most of which are just set to default values?

At any rate try taking out the TrayIconDebug mode you set. Maybe that's conflicting.

I removed the default options from the script

and set the TrayIconDebug mode off.

But the problem is still there.

I found out at which point the program freeze,

but I can not explain why.

I open a window to check the content, but it

takes some time to open it and needs to be open

for a while. So I initialised a timer and check

whether the 30 sec are gone and then the program

should get the content and close the window.

but this check whether the timer reached 30 sec

fail until I went over the icon. Someone has a

solution for this problem?

I hope its understandable what I've wrote.

Thanks for answers. Best Regards

Matthias

I'm not getting it. There's no timer in the code you posted, and it can't be run anyway.

Try posting a reproducer script that we can run to duplicate the symptoms.

So here I have a little program that

shows my problem with TrayGetMsg.

I thought it will add 1 to whiletest

all the time, but it only adds 1 if

you move above the tray icon. So the

program seems to freeze when I want

to start functions in the whileloop.

How can I solve this problem?

I want whiletest to be added 1 all

the time and have access to the tray

menu at the same time.

Best regards,

Matthias

$item_about             = TrayCreateItem("About")
TrayCreateItem("")
$item_exit              = TrayCreateItem("Exit")
TraySetState()

$whiletest = 0

While 1

    func_notification()

    $msg = TrayGetMsg()

    Select
        Case $msg = 0
            ContinueLoop

        Case $msg = $item_about
        MsgBox(0,"About","Abouttext")

        Case $msg = $item_exit
            ExitLoop
    EndSelect

    $whiletest = $whiletest +1

    Sleep(100)

WEnd

Exit

Func func_notification()
    ToolTip($whiletest,0,0,"Durations",1)
EndFunc

This will do what you want.

I've moved

$whiletest = $whiletest +1

to where it will get updated even if $msg is 0

$item_about             = TrayCreateItem("About")
TrayCreateItem("")
$item_exit              = TrayCreateItem("Exit")
TraySetState()

$whiletest = 0

While 1

    func_notification()

    $msg = TrayGetMsg()
    $whiletest = $whiletest +1

    Select
        Case $msg = 0
            ContinueLoop

        Case $msg = $item_about
        MsgBox(0,"About","Abouttext")

        Case $msg = $item_exit
            ExitLoop
    EndSelect


    Sleep(100)

WEnd

Exit

Func func_notification()
    ToolTip($whiletest,0,0,"Durations",1)
EndFunc

Oh no, I've just forgotten the ContinueLoop.

Thanks for your help!
