#823 closed Bug (Wont Fix)

OnAutoItExit does not trigger on Control-C in console mode.

Reported by: david@… Owned by:

Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


If I compile my script to run in console mode and hit control-C as it is running it will terminate the program but not run OnAutoItExit.

I "worked around" the issue by using HotKeySet( "c", "ControlC" ) and have that function call an Exit command which triggers OnAutoItExit. This is undesirable as it traps Control-C everywhere even when I am trying to copy and paste in another program.

I'm closing this as Won't Fix. There are (at least) two ways you can handle this. You can use DllCall() and the Windows API SetConsoleMode() function to change how Ctrl+C is interpreted. You can also use DllCall(), DllCallbackRegister() and the Windows API SetConsoleCtrlHandler() to receive notification of the event and handle it appropriately.
