Progress On - External command

Recommended Posts

Erlend

Hello, i have created i samll app that runs an external command to collect data from 100+ servers, my problem with the progres bare is that the external command uses a diferent amount of time etatch time, part of the code:

ProgressOn("APPx1", "collecting server info...", "99 percent")
For $i = 95 to 100 step 99
    sleep(1000)
    ProgressSet( $i, $i & " percent")
RunWait(@COMSPEC &" /C " & $TSTool & " " & $user & " > z:\user.txt", @HomeDrive, @SW_HIDE)
Next
ProgressSet(100 , "Completed", "server info collected")
sleep(500)
ProgressOff()

as you can se the external command tuns in the midle of the progress bar, i have now set it to start at 95%

if it,s any help i can use a ProcessWaitClose to check if the external comand is completed.

How can i make the progres bare just run as long as the external command takes to complete, and the go to 100%?

Thanks for any help :)

Erlend,

I cannot help with timing your external app, but I can offer a "marquee" progress bar that at least shows something is happening:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ProgressConstants.au3>
#include <SendMessage.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
GUICtrlCreateProgress(10, 10, 400, 20, $PBS_MARQUEE)
_SendMessage(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $PBM_SETMARQUEE, True, 50) ; final parameter is update time in ms
GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

I hope that helps. :)

Erlend,

You create the marquee progress just before you start your external app and let it run until your app finishes (i.e. the RunWait returns) - then you can delete it. All it does is give the indication that something is happening. :) I use it a lot when I have no way of telling how long something will take.

thanks agian, i have now tried diferent combination, but i cant figure out when to start the RunWait command and when to creat the GUI:

$hGUI = GUICreate("server - collecting information", 420, 40)
GUICtrlCreateProgress(10, 10, 400, 20, $PBS_MARQUEE)
_SendMessage(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $PBM_SETMARQUEE, True, 50) ; final parameter is update time in ms
GUISetState()
While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        RunWait(@COMSPEC &" /C " & $TSTool & " " & $user & " > u:\user.txt", @HomeDrive, @SW_HIDE)
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

where hould i put the RunWait command?

Erlend,

$hGUI = GUICreate("server - collecting information", 420, 40)
GUICtrlCreateProgress(10, 10, 400, 20, $PBS_MARQUEE)
_SendMessage(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $PBM_SETMARQUEE, True, 50) ; final parameter is update time in ms
GUISetState()

RunWait(@COMSPEC &" /C " & $TSTool & " " & $user & " > u:\user.txt", @HomeDrive, @SW_HIDE)

GUIDelete($hGUI)

No need for a loop - the RunWait will keep the script open until it returns.
