Sleep using a var?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to put the time to sleep in a var?

This doesn't seem to work:


And I was wondering if it would be possible to do this because I wish to use this snippet in a code:

$begin = TimerInit()
$dif = TimerDiff($begin)
MsgBox(0,"Time Difference",$dif)

And I want to be able to set the time to Sleep myself via a GUI.

$iSleep = GUICtrlRead($someInput)
$begin = TimerInit()
$dif = TimerDiff($begin)
MsgBox(0,"Time Difference",$dif)

Yes you can...I use this code to pause a script so that it runs at even hours only (every 2 hours)

#include <Date.au3>

$TimeToSleep = _RunHourly()

Func _RunHourly()
    Local $CurrentTime, $RunTime, $SleepTime
    Local $CurrentFriendly, $RunFriendly, $sleepFriendly, $String
    Local $cHour, $cMin, $cSec, $rHour, $rMin, $rSec, $sHour, $sMin, $sSec
    $CurrentTime = _TimeToTicks(@HOUR, @MIN, @SEC)
    If Mod(@HOUR, 2) = 0 Then
        $RunTime = _TimeToTicks(@HOUR + 2, 0, 0)
        $RunTime = _TimeToTicks(@HOUR + 1, 0, 0)
    $SleepTime = $RunTime - $CurrentTime
        $CurrentFriendly = _TicksToTime($CurrentTime, $cHour, $cMin, $cSec)
        $RunFriendly = _TicksToTime($RunTime, $rHour, $rMin, $rSec)
        $sleepFriendly = _TicksToTime($SleepTime, $sHour, $sMin, $sSec)
        $String &= 'Current Time: ' & StringFormat('%02i:%02i:%02i', $cHour, $cMin, $cSec) & @CRLF
        $String &= 'Run Time: ' & StringFormat('%02i:%02i:%02i', $rHour, $rMin, $rSec) & @CRLF
        $String &= 'Sleep Time [Friendly]: ' & StringFormat('%02i:%02i:%02i', $sHour, $sMin, $sSec) & @CRLF
        $String &= 'Sleep Time [Millisecond]s: ' & $SleepTime
        MsgBox(262144, '', $String)
    Return $SleepTime
EndFunc   ;==>_RunHourly
