Hi I wanted to make an application where I can get a dialog where I can input programs and say when theyre supposed to run. (sort of automation in starting stopping programs at different times, maybe save the programs i choose in an .ini or something so I don't have to add em everytime i restart my pc).

I've no clue where to start so was hoping for some help?

Thanks in advance

Kindly regards Deathboy

I would start by looking at the something like Cron, to get an idea about how other have done it.

If I were doing it I would make two programs:

one to run in the tray and execute based on a config file (daemon)

another to edit the config file

This way if you are editing the file it doesn't miss executing the program, also the daemon will use less memory (no gui code, etc)

Just my $.02


#fgpkerw4kcmnq2mns1ax7ilndopen (Q, $0); while ($l = <Q>){if ($l =~ m/^#.*/){$l =~ tr/a-z1-9#/Huh, Junketeer's Alternate Pro Ace /; print $l;}}close (Q);[code] tag ninja!

Not a bad idea with the 2 applications!

looked fast through the wiki site,

Now I need to find out how to save to a file and get an easy overview in the program then

What would this app do, what Windows Task Scheduler (Control Panel -> Scheduled Tasks) or NT AT couldn't?

Or is it to be just a prove of concept?


UDFS & Apps:


DDEML.au3 - DDE Client + Server[*]
Localization.au3- localize your scripts[*]
TLI.au3 - type information on COM objects (TLBINF emulation)[*]
TLBAutoEnum.au3 - auto-import of COM constants (enums)[*]
AU3Automation - export AU3 scripts via COM interfaces
TypeLibInspector

Probably the same as Windows Task Scheduler <-- can't seem to find it in win7 64bit utlimate, Therefore I wanted to make one.

Try to type "task scheduler" in the start menu, it should find it.

You are welcome.

Looked in the "Example Scripts" forum already? Likely somebody would have done something similar.

Just begin with scripting and when you got something to run and concrete questions arise, ask them here but post your code.
