Sleep for 45 to 60 seconds [Solved]

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to set it so that it doesn't happen at the exact same time each time my macro sleeps.

Instead being a range between forty five and sixty seconds.

I have been searching in google and in the help file but I must be missing it.

For the variablity of the timer use Random(45,60,1) this will give you a random number (an integer) between 45 and 60.

$DelayTime = Random(45,60,1) * 1000 ; Timer is in milliseconds, so need to multiply by 1000 to get seconds
$Timer = TimerInit()
While 1
      $Delay = TimerDiff($Timer)
      If $Delay >= $DelayTime then
        ;.... code here
        $DelayTime = Random(45,60,1) * 1000

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
