10 posts in this topic

Dear all,

I'd like to make a window where i can see how far my installers are.

And how far the are over all.

I have 6 installers they install automatic behind each order.

Can someone help me with the script.

Greet,

Aldrinn

Aldrinn,

How do you get the progress information from your installers?

Have a look at ProgressOn(), ProgressOff() and ProgressSet(). These built-in functions maybe what you want.

Look at these functions and then see what you can achieve. Otherwise, I am sure something can be done to help you.

From the installers.

But for the customers is it nicer that everything is in 1 screen.

And how must my script look like than?

Aldrinn,

Here is an idea of how you might do it - I have had to simulate quite a lot, but I hope you get the idea: :mellow:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Global $aInstall_List[6] = ["One", "Two", "Three", "Four", "Five", "Six"]

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Current installer", 10, 20, 100, 20)
$hLabel_1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 120, 20, 100, 20)
$hProgress_1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(10, 50, 480, 20)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Total installed", 10, 100, 100, 20)
$hProgress_2 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(10, 130, 480, 20)
GUISetState()

For $i = 0 To UBound($aInstall_List)

    ; Simulate running install
    GUICtrlSetData($hLabel_1, $aInstall_List[$i])

    ; Simulate waiting until install completes - probably by using something like: While ProcessExists("One.exe")
    $j = 0
    Do
        ; You would read $j from your installer
        GUICtrlSetData($hProgress_1, $j)
        GUICtrlSetData($hProgress_2, ($i * 100 / UBound($aInstall_List)) + ($j / 6))
        $j += 1
        Sleep(100)
    Until $j = 100
Next

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

Yes that what i expected.

But now the final question how can i include this:

RunWait ("\\brainnas1\software\autoit\installers\diskdefrag.exe" )

RunWait ("\\brainnas1\software\autoit\installers\foxit.exe")

RunWait ("\\brainnas1\software\autoit\installers\realvnc 4.1.3.exe")

RunWait ("\\brainnas1\software\autoit\installers\TuneUp.exe")

RunWait ("\\brainnas1\software\autoit\installers\java 6.18.exe")

RunWait ("\\brainnas1\software\autoit\installers\malware.exe")

Because this is what he needs to instal.

Aldrinn,

If you use RunWait, how are you going to get the progress state of the installers? Your script will be paused until the installer finishes. :(

That is why I asked you how you were going to do this in my previous post! :mellow:

And how must my script look like than?

Here. A simple script to start with. I comment the RunWait() lines for testing the script. The Sleep()s are to show the progress increments for the test only.

ProgressOn('Installations in progress', 'main', 'sub')
ProgressSet(10, 'Installing', 'diskdefrag.exe')
;~ RunWait ("\\brainnas1\software\autoit\installers\diskdefrag.exe" )
Sleep(1000)
ProgressSet(10, 'Installing', 'foxit.exe')
;~ RunWait ("\\brainnas1\software\autoit\installers\foxit.exe")
ProgressSet(15, 'Installing', 'realvnc 4.1.3.exe')
Sleep(1000)
;~ RunWait ("\\brainnas1\software\autoit\installers\realvnc 4.1.3.exe")
ProgressSet(20, 'Installing', 'TuneUp.exe')
Sleep(1000)
;~ RunWait ("\\brainnas1\software\autoit\installers\TuneUp.exe")
ProgressSet(40, 'Installing', 'java 6.18.exe')
Sleep(1000)
;~ RunWait ("\\brainnas1\software\autoit\installers\java 6.18.exe")
ProgressSet(60, 'Installing', 'malware.exe')
Sleep(1000)
;~ RunWait ("\\brainnas1\software\autoit\installers\malware.exe")
ProgressSet(80, 'Installation Complete', '')
Sleep(1000)
ProgressOff()

Aldrinn,

If you run your installers using RunWait, the script pauses until the installer has finished, so there is no way to update the "Current Installer" progress bar. In my earlier post I asked you how you got this information because how you determine the progress of each installer is fundamental to how you update the progress bar. You replied that you could get this information from your installers - but it now seems that you have no way of doing this. :(

However, I can suggest a partial solution - use a Marquee progress like this to at least indicate that something is going on: :mellow:

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

Global $aInstall_List[6] = ["One", "Two", "Three", "Four", "Five", "Six"]

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Current installer", 10, 20, 100, 20)
$hLabel_1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 120, 20, 100, 20)
$hProgress_1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(10, 50, 480, 20, $PBS_MARQUEE)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Total installed", 10, 100, 100, 20)
$hProgress_2 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(10, 130, 480, 20)
GUISetState()

For $i = 0 To UBound($aInstall_List) - 1

    ; Start the top progress going
    _SendMessage(GUICtrlGetHandle($hProgress_1), $PBM_SETMARQUEE, True, 50) ; final parameter is update time in ms

    ; Simulate running install
    GUICtrlSetData($hLabel_1, $aInstall_List[$i])

    ; Simulate waiting until install completes - probably by using something like: While ProcessExists("One.exe")

    Sleep(5000)

    ; Update bottom progress
    GUICtrlSetData($hProgress_2, ($i + 1) * (100 / UBound($aInstall_List)))

Next

; Stop the top progress
_SendMessage(GUICtrlGetHandle($hProgress_1), $PBM_SETMARQUEE, False, 50)
GUICtrlSetData($hLabel_1, "")

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