Application Log

Recommended Posts


Hey so this is my first post on any Autoit Forum and I'm sorry if i break any rules. I often see people get yelled at for breaking any rule or being stupid. Anyways, im pretty sure this is allowed.

I need help with this Application History Program (no malicious intent) I have it scripted as so:

Basically to sum up my code for you guys is I'm just getting the current winTitle and comparing it with the last and if they're not the same i'm adding it to the log.html

$dir = @AppDataCommonDir&"\Practice Work"
$s = "-"& @MON & "_" & @MDAY & ".html"
$currMin = (@YDAY*24*60) + (@HOUR * 60) + @MIN
$currProg = WinGetTitle("")

_FileCreate($dir & "\System Program\log" & $s)
_FileCreate($dir & "\System History\log" & $s)

$progLog=FileOpen($dir & "\System Program\log" & $s)
$histLog=FileOpen($dir & "\System History\log" & $s)

Func _shinCode()
if not WinGetTitle("") == $currProg then
  $currProg = WinGetTitle("")
  if StringRegExp($currProg,"Internet Explorer|Google Chrome|Firefox|Opera|Safari|.com|.net|.org|.info|.gov") = 1 Then
   FileWrite($histLog, "<table border="&""""&"2"&""""&"><tr><th>Date:"&"["&"<i>"&@MON&"/"&@MDAY&"/"&@YEAR&"</i>"&"] Time: ["&@HOUR&":"&@MIN&"] User: [ "&@UserName&" ]</th>"&"</tr></table>")
   FileWriteLine($dir & "\System History\log" & $s, "&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp - "&$currProg&"-")
   if(StringLen($currProg)>0) then
    FileWrite($progLog, "<table border="&""""&"2"&""""&"><tr><th>Date:"&"["&"<i>"&@MON&"/"&@MDAY&"/"&@YEAR&"</i>"&"] Time: ["&@HOUR&":"&@MIN&"] User: [ "&@UserName&" ]</th>"&"</tr></table>")
    FileWriteLine($dir & "\System Program\log" & $s, "&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp - "&$currProg)

while True

However, the file comes up blank with no history of any programs or internet history...I dont know why? any help...?

Welcome to the forum.

$currProg = WinGetTitle("") is the first culprit. You must not specify an empty string here. Maybe WinGetTitle("[active]") is what you want.

Now help files warn you against mixing File* calls using handles and filenames.

When something may fail, always check for error (usually by testing @error). That will help you everyday wrtiting clean and robust code.
