Default How do i stop a method? - 12-14-2009, 07:04 PM

How do I stop a method which uses an infinite loop. Basically what im doing is if the switch is up this method runs which uses an infinite loop to move two cars but what i need help on is stopping the method when the switch is turned to the off position. The problem is since the method uses an infinite loop the method never ends, therefore i cant stop it.

HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

I have a method that has an infinite loop. I want it it so when i flip a switch the method stops, but it doesn't seem to be working since there is in an infinite loop. You will see in my program.

Well I had to rush this because I have to go, but this is what I came up with so far, hope it helped. I made it while switch is not up (by the way you have the switch upside down) then it starts it, and when the switch is switched off, it stops the actions. It does not stop the actions mid move however, it has to wait until the method runs through, then it stops. So it stops the infinite loop, but only when the method finishes.

Tell me if this is what you were looking for please.

If it isn't, you could add checks into the movement method to make it stop more quickly when the switch is flipped to off. I could show you how to do that.
