Hello everybody smile

I did search the helpfiles and the forums but didn't find an answer. Hopefully I'm not no. 3474 who asked this question blush

Here they are:

1) Is there an equivalent to eg. delphi's "assigned" function?
Means: Is there a possibility to figure out whether some special alias exists or not.

Example: Imagine there exists an alias called "test"
if ( $assigned(test) != $null ) {
/test someparameters
}
else {
/echo -s no valid alias
}

-----------------------------------------------------------------

2) Is there a possibillity to give the processcontrol back to mIRC (or the system) while within a script? (equivalent to the delphi's Application.ProcessMessages)

Example: this will cause an infinite loop an therefore "block" any other process, including mirc.
while ($true) {
/echo -s hello
}

It would be nice to give mirc and the system some processtime within the loop. Example:
while ($true) {
/echo -s hello
/processmessages
}

Hopefully I could formulate my questions understandable. Thx in advance for any answer smile

1. I'm not familiar with Delphi so excuse me if I get this wrong. $isalias(aliasname) returns $true if an alias exists, $false if it doesn't.

2. I have no idea (there is not a command to do this, but there might be a way to produce the same effect). There might be a way using the /sleep script, but I don't use it so hopefully someone else will answer..you could use a /timer (but it would be a few hundred times slower than using a while loop). Something similar to this was posted here which might help.

Hello Collective

1. Thank you very much, that was exactly I was looking for smile

2. Well... yes, that seems to be the same problem I have.
But to be honest the solution is not very elegant. That would be some kind of goto-spagetti-programming with timers grin

Could it be that this is really some missing feature in mIRC?

Regards
Paule

Yes, you can join the campaign for it to be added in the link I gave (I edited it in after, sorry if you didn't see it).
