Creating a custom AutoIt Exit Function – just a quick little tip on how to create a exit function and bind it to a hotkey.
This function is using the AutoIt Exit Keyword to provide an easy way to terminate the running script at any time – sometimes you may need to hit the hotkey a few times for the script to react, this is likely due to the sleep somehow blocking AutoIt from catching hotkey presses.
Custom Exit Function
The way to set a hotkey is using the HotKeySet function of AutoIt.
;Assigns the HotKey to our custom exit function HotKeySet("^!x", "MyExit") $i = 0 While $i <= 10 MouseClick("left", 200, 150, 1) ; Uncomment the below line to make the script click only 10 times, or until the hotkey is pressed. ; $i = $i + 1 ; Uncomment the below line to make the script pause between clicks, the value is in milliseconds ; Sleep(5000) WEnd Func MyExit() Exit EndFunc
