Do Until all Arrays have been process

16 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

Could someone shed some light on working with Arrays,

For $i=0 To 30
;DO Until Loop?
$run123 = RunAs(@ComSpec & " /c " & $TestArray[$i], @systemdir, @SW_HIDE,$STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

Do i need a Do Until here?;this is where i need help is there anyway to have it end the loop when the last $TestArray[30] has been processed by $run123
Next
MsgBox(0, "", "finished") ;Denotes that function has been completed all 30 arrays have been processed
Run(Command)

I have tried adding many variation but while it is processing the arrays it pops up the msgbox and runs the specific command.

You don't show how thw array is structured so the best we can do is deal in geheralities. Usually with an array you will be looking into using a For/Next loop instead of Do/Until.

Global $TestArray[31]

For $i=0 To 30 Step 1
  $run123 = RunAs(@ComSpec & " /c " & $TestArray[$i], @systemdir, @SW_HIDE,$STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
Next

MsgBox(0, "", "finished") ;Denotes that function has been completed all 30 arrays have been processed

This code should do exactly what you want. Else you need to describe again.

Sorry I didnt explain in more detail:

If I was to use Do/Until were exactly would i place that within the function, further more how can you capture that the last Array has been processed, then perform what ever command.

thanks again.

Try this for a start. You are still trying to read an array post that doesn't exist (index 31).

Global $file = "", $test = ""

MsgBox(0, "", "If you see this text the function test123 has been run without errors.")

Hi Xibalba,

Unfortunately this did not work as desired.

It executes all 30 of the arrays in seperate cmd.exe's and my machine almost halted, then it half way throught before all 33 arrays had been processed in cmd.exe it pops up the msgbox.

Global $TestArray[31]

For $i=0 To 30 Step 1
  $run123 = RunAs(@ComSpec & " /c " & $TestArray[$i], @systemdir, @SW_HIDE,$STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
Next

MsgBox(0, "", "finished") ;Denotes that function has been completed all 30 arrays have been processed

This code should do exactly what you want. Else you need to describe again.

33 arrays?

Anyway, try adding a sleep after each call:

Global $TestArray[31]

For $i=0 To 30 Step 1
  $run123 = RunAs(@ComSpec & " /c " & $TestArray[$i], @systemdir, @SW_HIDE,$STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
  Sleep(5000) ; Will wait 5 seconds
Next

MsgBox(0, "", "finished") ;Denotes that function has been completed all 30 arrays have been processed

Also, check out the WinWaitClose() function in AutoIt help.

Hi Again Xibalba,

sorry that was a typo my bad.

when monitoring the execution of test123() func i see that it launches in batches of 5-10 instances of cmd.exe and child process for each of those cmd.exe which in this case $file = status.exe.

Sorry as I am still learning working with Arrays, but I am needing each array to be processed and closed before the next one, this is to reduce ram and CPU utilization.

Will check on the winwaitclose() and report back, thanks again

Questions:

Why are you using RunAs() when you are not running it with any credentials and your parameters are incorrect anyway?

Why would he want to use $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD when he's not reading the StdStream?

Why would you suggest a 5 second sleep when RunWait() will stop it from proceeding until the current call is finished?

- Sorry Im modifying what i paste in Forums

$pid = RunAs($adminuser, "", $adminpwd, 0, @ComSpec & " /c " & $TestArray[$i], @systemdir, @SW_HIDE,$STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

Why would he want to use $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD when he's not reading the StdStream?

- I was messing around with trying output child process to a Control.

Why would you suggest a 5 second sleep when RunWait() will stop it from proceeding until the current call is finished?

I suppose you mean @Monolith. If not:

I'm not. Monolith is.

Why would he want to use $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD when he's not reading the StdStream?

No idea, ask him.

Why would you suggest a 5 second sleep when RunWait() will stop it from proceeding until the current call is finished?

Because it is a fast (and ugly) workaround. Sleep() and WinWaitClose() was suggested to point Monolith in the right direction. RunWait() is probably the optimal solution for what Monolith tries to accomplish.

As the topic suggests, the main problem for OP was understanding arrays, which I tried to explain (and solve).

Hi again,

RunAsWait() i cant belive I over looked that :) thanks, but I found RunAsWait bit slow, so what i implemented was adding to command line && Exit

which will exit when command completed successfully so only waiting .5-1.5 secs.

$pid = RunAs($adminuser, "", $adminpwd, 0, @ComSpec & " /c " & $TestArray[$i] & " " & "&&" & " " & "Exit", @systemdir, @SW_HIDE,$STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

with debuggin scripts, #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y works greate but is there anyway to get a time for when each

$pid = RunAs($adminuser, "", $adminpwd, 0, @ComSpec & " /c " & $TestArray[$i], @systemdir, @SW_HIDE,$STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

is processed?

just so i can bench mark?

thanks everyone thus far for your help.

Glad you solved it.

As for benchmarking, checkout the TimerInit and TimerDiff functions, example:

$begin = TimerInit()
sleep(3000)
$dif = TimerDiff($begin)
MsgBox(0,"Time Difference",$dif)
