stopping Sleep using a timer

5 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I have a timer that checks if i have internet connetion every 5 secs.

AdlibRegister("Myfunc", 5000)

If there is no connection I want to restart my script, the problem I am having is that in my script i use the Sleep function and can be up to 10mins long.

So should i not use sleep but perhaps another timer. Or can I force the script to close (easy enought) but then how best to re run my script please.

thanks for greate tool and forum

Mark

I found that using a timer for extended idle times works best, for those cases where the idle may need to be interrupted.

Many thanks kaotkbliss, i think that will be the best approach to. Just on the whole re-running of a script do you know what is the best way to do it. I am using the Run function just before exit at the moment to run the script again, it seems to be working but wasnt sure if this was the best way as im new to AutoIT

thanks
