Website Online/Offline Status in GUI Form?

Recommended Posts

Hyflex

I am trying to incorporate a website status into my script hopefully so I can add it to my GUI but am not sure how to make some text on my GUI change color depending on the website status..

I was guessing something like this...

While 1
If Ping("google.co.uk", 200) Then
  ; Add code here for "Online" GUI Code
Else
  ; Add code here for "Offline" GUI Code
EndIf
WEnd

I know I could of used _INetGetSource but I think Ping will suffice.

I should of prolly posted this:

If Ping("home.website.com", 200) Then
If Ping("login.website.com", 200) Then
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($GUIStatus, "           Website = Online        Login Server: Online")
Else
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($GUIStatus, "           Website = Online        Login Server: Offline")
EndIf
Else
If Ping("login.website.com", 200) Then
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($GUIStatus, "           Website = Offline       Login Server: Online")
Else
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($GUIStatus, "           Website = Offline       Login Server: Offline")
EndIf
EndIf

That is the only thing I have semi-working and that can't go in the while loop as they keep switching between online and offline... + It doesn't give me any colors (I want to be able to set online as green and offline as red

Edit: I just noticed Ping can't ping https servers

Done some further digging and it appears that the https server I'm trying to ping is rejecting/blocking pings... is there any alternative way to check if a https server is online?

What is the site you're trying to check?


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.

This is just a rewrite of the code in post #4. Basically, if it can get the source code of a page, it'll say 'online'. If it can't, it'll say 'offline'.

#include <Inet.au3>
If _INetGetSource('https://fastmail.fm') <> "" Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "Site online")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "", "Site offline")
EndIf

edit: I just noticed that this code will not work with that game site as the URL. Oh well..

Seems like the site might be actively blocking the ability to see if it's online that way. You can't ping it, you can't download the site, so basically you can't see if it's online unless you go to it. I even tried it with http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/netgame.com and it returned that it was down.

How is that even possible because surely DNS servers wouldn't work either...

See: http://www.downornot.com/login.netgame <-- they can detect if it's up or down...

DNS servers don't care if a site is up or down, they just look for record updates. If the site hasn't updated its DNS record, then eventually it will not be reachable at all. I could pull the plug on a computer and my DNS server here will still tell me its old IP address until it purges old records.

I see, is there a way to use the link i gave above to check the websites status via autoit?
