_Singleton - Reload Script?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Can anyone tell me how to use _Singleton (or any other method) to reload/restart/refresh the script in question?

Hello,

Can anyone tell me how to use _Singleton (or any other method) to reload/restart/refresh the script in question?

The intention of _Singleton is to prevent another instance of your scriot running. If you want to start the script again then all you need to do is something like this

(not tested)

Func ReCreateMyself()
    If @Compiled Then
        Run(@ScriptFullPath);just run the exe
    Else
        ;$AutoIt3Path = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AutoIt v3\AutoIt", "betaInstallDir");installDir for beta
        $AutoIt3Path = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AutoIt v3\AutoIt", "InstallDir");installDir for production
        $ToRun1 = '"' & $AutoIt3Path & '\AutoIt3.exe "' & ' "' & @ScriptFullPath & '"'
        ; ConsoleWrite($ToRun1 & @CRLF);to test we have got it right
        Run($ToRun1)
    EndIf
    
    Exit

EndFunc   ;==>ReCreateMyself

If you don't want 2 versions of the script to run under normal circumstances then you could use _Singleton and write your script so that if a certain parameter is passed then allow the second instance, or maybe wait a certain time and if the second instance stops then continue otherwise exit.

There are examples of using _Singleton around, and a function _MutexExists which I find easier to use.


Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.
