need help in writing script

Recommended Posts

manit

hi ,

I intend to write following script (because I want to calculate the availability of internet on my connection . It is so intermittent that drives me crazy .)

loop forever
{
ping -n 1 www.google.com | find /i "reply"
#If above command gives string as output . It will be like
#Reply from 173.194.36.19: bytes=32 time=44ms TTL=54
#Had there been no  internet then above command would produce no output because
#Ping request could not find host www.google.com. Please check the name and try again.
increment 'tries' variable by 1
increment 'success' variable by 1 if reply received as told above
do nothing for 1 minute
if user has pressed stop checkmark button then
wait till user unselects it
}

The GUI I can imagine is stop checkmark & two greyed out text field showing number of attempts & sucesses .

Please suggest .

So far I created window with start & stop buttons .

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiButton.au3>
$hGUI = GUICreate("My GUI") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
$btn1 = _GUICtrlButton_Create($hGUI, "START", 10, 10, 100, 50, $BS_AUTORADIOBUTTON)
$btn2 = _GUICtrlButton_Create($hGUI, "STOP", 110, 10, 50, 50, $BS_AUTORADIOBUTTON)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; will display an empty dialog box
While 1
$msg = GUIGetMsg()

If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
WEnd

Somewhere I also saw

$Command="cmd /c dir c: /s";<-Your command
RunWait($command & ">" & @scriptdir & "output.txt","",@sw_hide)
$OutPut = FileRead( @scriptdir & "output.txt",FileGetSize(@scriptdir & "output.txt"))
FileDelete( @scriptdir & "output.txt")
;$Output now contain the Console output of $Command

which will help me to store command output in variable.

How do I associate a function which runs on selecting one of those buttons ?

I tried this

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiButton.au3>
$hGUI = GUICreate("My GUI") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
$btn1 = _GUICtrlButton_Create($hGUI, "START", 10, 10, 100, 50, $BS_AUTORADIOBUTTON)
$btn2 = _GUICtrlButton_Create($hGUI, "STOP", 110, 10, 50, 50, $BS_AUTORADIOBUTTON)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; will display an empty dialog box
While 1
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
If $msg = $btn1 Then _LetUsRunCommand()
WEnd

Func _LetUsRunCommand()
$command="cmd /c dir c: /s";<-Your command
RunWait($command & ">" & @scriptdir & "output.txt","",@sw_hide)
$output = FileRead( @scriptdir & "output.txt",FileGetSize(@scriptdir & "output.txt"))
;FileDelete( @scriptdir & "output.txt")
;$Output now contain the Console output of $Command
MsgBox ( 0 , "Output of command read is : " , $output)

EndFunc

Neither output.txt gets created in current folder nor message box appears on selecting start.

Try this instead of using the UDF buttons.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiButton.au3>
$hGUI = GUICreate("My GUI") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
$btn1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("START", 10, 10, 100, 50)
$btn2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("STOP", 110, 10, 50, 50)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; will display an empty dialog box
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    If $msg = $btn1 Then _LetUsRunCommand()
WEnd

Func _LetUsRunCommand()
    $command = "cmd /c dir c: /s";<-Your command
    RunWait($command & ">" & @ScriptDir & "output.txt", "", @SW_HIDE)
    $output = FileRead(@ScriptDir & "output.txt", FileGetSize(@ScriptDir & "output.txt"))
    ;FileDelete( @scriptdir & "output.txt")
    ;$Output now contain the Console output of $Command
    MsgBox(0, "Output of command read is : ", $output)

EndFunc   ;==>_LetUsRunCommand

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.

EndFunc ;==>_LetUsRunCommand

I was hoping that on selecting STOP button the pinging will end but the file output.txt kept growing

Once you get it into running your function, you don't have anyway out of the While loop in there. You have the variable to stop it, but you don't have anyway to set it while that loop is running.

Can you suggest a way that in an infinite loop something is checked every time to exit if user has clicked a button ?

It has been a while.

Recently , I realized that internet connection can be checked by pinging a website .

www.example.com is an ideal choice.

It seems , yet the question remains as asked before.
