Methods and keys in E!B

Methods and keys in E!B

Methods and keys in E!B

Hello, I was wondering if there was a way to wait for certain keys to be pressed while the macro is running. For example, while the macro is running, is it possible to wait for a key to be pressed, so i could exit macro, mid-run? Also, i would like to know if i can wait for two different keys at once, i have tried something, but it didnt work as well as i wanted, this is what i tried


While (K <> " " and K <> "`")
       K = Sess0.Screen.WaitForKeys()
            If (K <> " " and K <> "`") Then
                'nothing goes here, but this way of testing only works if i put in this if statement
            End If
MsgBox F

RE: Methods and keys in E!B

Oh, and also i wanted to know if there was a way to make methods in E!B, and how to use them with parameters.

RE: Methods and keys in E!B



      K = Sess.Screen.WaitForKeys()
   Loop While (K <> " " and K <> "`")
   Msgbox K
   Exit Sub ' exits macro
   Do While(1)   

Functions and Subs


Declare Function Session_Open(ByRef message as String) As Integer  ' Function Prototype
Declare Sub Wait()                                                 ' Sub Prototype
Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)    ' Sleep API

GLOBAL Sys as Object
GLOBAL Sess as Object

Sub Main
   Dim message as String
   If Session_Open (message) <> 1 Then
      Msgbox message
      Exit Sub
   End If
End Sub

' Function Declaration

Function Session_Open(ByRef message As String) As Integer
   Dim sess_open As Integer

   sess_open = 1

   Set Sys = CreateObject("Extra.System")
   Set Sess = Sys.ActiveSession

   If Sys Is Nothing Then
      message = "Could not create Extra.System...is E!PC installed on this machine?"
      sess_open = 0
   End If

   If Sess Is Nothing Then
      message = "No session available...stopping macro playback."
      sess_open = 0
   End If

   Session_Open = sess_open
End Function

' Sub Declaration

Sub Wait()
   Do While Sess.Screen.OIA.Xstatus <> 0
End Sub

Note, if you declare your subs and functions before Sub Main, you don't need the prototypes.
