GUI twitching/stuttering

15 posts in this topic

Sorry for the huge example script...

When any given file crosses about the 100MB in a transfer Vista and 7 both have an odd twitch and all controls die until the file has finished copying. Under XP the controls die at the same time, but there is no twitch to the GUI. Anybody have any thoughts as to why? Also looking for suggestions to keep the progressbars in sync properly under Vista/7.

Thanks

Ian

; Function to copy a file showing a realtime progress bar

;
; 05/11/2008
;

;

; Returns 0 if copy is successful and 1 if it fails
;
;
; Updates:
;
; 06/11/2008 - Now shows SOURCE and DEST on seperate lines while copying
;           - Now uses Kernal32 and DllCallBackRegister to provide faster copying
;             Kernal32 and DllCallBackRegister taken from _MultiFileCopy.au3

I would guess that once you start copying the script is hung up waiting for the copy to finish and it cannot respond to events.

I would first try using OnEvent mode. Set a flag in the function for the start button and return from that function, then detect the flag in your main idle loop and call the copy function so that other events can be processed while the copying is done.


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.

Whew, hehehe won't lie to ya, the concept makes sense but I've never used OnEvent before, I'll look in to it and post back if I can get it going, thanks!

hmmmm, same thing. I am not quite sure what you meant by "return from that function, then detect the flag in your main idle loop and call the copy function", could you explain it differently maybe? I searched for GUIOnEventMode but didn't see anything like what you described in the first page.....

Thanks

hmmmm, same thing. I am not quite sure what you meant by "return from that function, then detect the flag in your main idle loop and call the copy function", could you explain it differently maybe? I searched for GUIOnEventMode but didn't see anything like what you described in the first page.....

Thanks

Ian

When you use OnEventmode you have functions set to be called when an event is fired. (I know you know that.) But only one function can be run at a time if that function is called in response to an event. So if you have a function which takes a long time to execute then all the events will get queued up and you can get problems. So with your function just set a flag and that's all. In your idle loop add a condition to see if the flag is set and if so call the real function which will take a long time. Now the function isn't directly running from an event and it can be interupted by other events. Of course the functions that these other events calls must not take too long or you will be back to the same problem.

I made the changes to your code and I haven't checked or tested it. As you will see it's very simple.

Thanks for the help, I'll look the changes over in more detail later, but I tested it and the same thing still happens - about 100MB in to a large transfer and all controls die. Any other causes you can think of?

Thanks again

I hadn't tried running it so I tried both versions and unfortunately they both work fine for me. I transferred a folder of about 1.3Gb and with a largest file of 150Mb but I didn't see any problem.

I'm using XP SP3, AutoIt 3.3.0.0.

I hadn't tried running it so I tried both versions and unfortunately they both work fine for me. I transferred a folder of about 1.3Gb and with a largest file of 150Mb but I didn't see any problem.

I'm using XP SP3, AutoIt 3.3.0.0.

Yeah, like I put in the title, issues with XP are seldom but I have seen it, Vista and 7 is very problematic though.

Sorry if I've wasted your time so far.

I can't easily try it in Vista. The next thing I would try is running a separate process for the copying, and use the callback to send a message to the 'parent' process with the data for the progress bars.

Have you tried replacing the progress bars with simple labels showing the percents to see if the problem is connected to the progress bars?

Also, what happens if you don't have a callback. Does the gui behaviour change? (Just to eliminate the callback as a cause of the problem.)

This is the same old problem with the CopyWithProgress scripts and large files. martin was right, the script is hung up waiting for the DllCall() to return and the OS thinks the script is non responsive because it is not processing messages. Your only options are (as marting suggested) a separate process that will do the copy and update the progress bars, or a DLL that you can call a multithreaded function to do the copy.

Thanks guys, a separate process is something I didn't think about, I'll see about that one.

As far as trying without ProgressBars, one silly test was I used Sliders instead, and Vista and 7 can BOTH keep up with the percents, kinda funny, but ProgressBars can't keep up. Having just labels for the progress does the same thing.....

I'll see if I can get a separate process going, but have never done that before so it might take some flailing around to get it right.

@Martin - please, you haven't wasted my time!! ;) I appreciate the help!!

Thanks

Ian

If you've never done it before then have a look at ChrisL's interprocess communication udf.

Per your suggestion I put together a quick test based on ChrisL's UDF, it works but is PAINFULLY slow, is that to be expected? On the upside, as you drag around the GUI with a ProgressBar installed it still updates properly which is pretty exciting, but even copying a 12MB file the ProgressBar filled up so slowly, it was odd. Having Script2 display the status as a TrayTip was also very VERY slow which tells me thta may not be a great way to implement a second process for the purpose of updating a ProgressBar. On a 50MB transfer it was so slow I cancelled it, and wouldn't even attempt a 150MB or so file. The kicker is that the file has copied over in normal time, it is just the transfer of the messages that is so slow. If you enable the Mod command in Script1 you will see the difference.

SOOOO, many thanks for getting me this far, any more ideas on speed improvements??

THANKS!

Ian

No time to play with this now but the problem is (I think) that you have set the receiver function to be to function which does the whole copy thing. When you have a function which receievs a message the handling of that message is only ended when the function ends, so you should make it as short as possible.

So have a small function as the receive function which sets the details of thefiles to copy in a global variable and sets some flag to say start copy. Then detect this flag in your main idle loop and call the copy function. I think that will make a big difference.

I tried a quick change and this seems to work ok on a 150Mb file.

#include "MessageHandler.au3"

$Local_ReceiverID_Name = "Script1sReceiverID";This is the ID that the other script will use to send data
$Remote_ReceiverID_Name = "Script2sReceiverID";This is the ID of the script we want to send data too

$hwnd = _SetAsReceiver($Local_ReceiverID_Name)
$myFunc = _SetReceiverFunction("_MyFunc3")
Global $where, $what,$startcopy = false, $callback, $ptr

;If Not IsDeclared("callback") Then
$callback = DllCallbackRegister('__Progress', 'int', 'uint64;uint64;uint64;uint64;dword;dword;ptr;ptr;str')
; If Not IsDeclared("ptr") Then
$ptr = DllCallbackGetPtr($callback)

While 1
 Sleep(100)
 if $startcopy then
 _MyFunc2()
 $startcopy = False
 EndIf
WEnd

I also changed Script2 although these changes aren't important in this example, but if the processing in _MyFunc2 were more invloved it would slow down the other script while it waited for the function to complete.

;Script2
#include "MessageHandler.au3"
local $vText
$Local_ReceiverID_Name = "Script2sReceiverID";This is the ID that the other script will use to send data
$Remote_ReceiverID_Name = "Script1sReceiverID";This is the ID of the script we want to send data too

$myFunc = _SetReceiverFunction("_MyFunc2")

$main=GUICreate("prog",400,50,100,100)
$prog=GUICtrlCreateProgress(5,5,390,40)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$main)

$Str =InputBox(@ScriptName," I am " & @ScriptName & @crlf & "Enter some data to be sent to the other script")
$iSent = _SendData($Str,$Remote_ReceiverID_Name)
ConsoleWrite("started" & @CRLF)
$vTexta = 0

 GUICtrlSetData($prog,$vTextA)
 $vTextb = $vTextA
 EndIf
WEnd
