    Running repeated actions with script

    Ghoulfool Level 1

      Using an action to call a script, is it possible to avoid the error (with a try/catch??) if the user repeatidly mashes the action play button?


      Error 8800: General Photoshop error occured.

      - Could not complete the Play command because the action is already playing.

      Line no

          Are you sure the error is happening because the play button it repeatedly clicked.  I would think the play button would be interlock till the action being played ends. The error usually happen when an action plays itself or plays an other action the plays the first. Recursion is not supported in actions. To do recursion you would need write a script.
