Closing a please wait at the right time?

9 posts in this topic

Ok on a script im working on im using a splshtxt to give me a warning to the person that just wait until its finished and then a different splashtxt to finish

SplashTextOn("Service Editing", "Starting Services Reset." & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
  "Please Wait", 300, 90)
  Sleep(25000)
  SplashOff()

Now this is ok but im guessing at the time it needs to be open so its not ideal as it will be longer on slower machines etc

What i need is for it to be monitoring the actual process during the files change

I dont mind if it needs changing to a progress bar instead, that would probably make more sense actually.

Global $aServiceKeysSafeDisabled[4] = [3, "AppMgmt", "bthserv", "CertPropSvc"] ; array of things to change

_ServiceChange($aServiceKeysSafeDisabled, "disabled") ; call function

; and the func i made with the help of others on the forum
Func _ServiceChange(ByRef $aArrayType, $sSetValue) ; Changes Services  Author = Chimaera
    For $d = 1 To $aArrayType[0]
;~       _ArrayDisplay( $aArrayType) ; >>>>>>>>>>>>>>  Error Checking
        ShellExecuteWait('sc.exe', 'config "' & $aArrayType[$d] & '" start= ' & $sSetValue, "", "", @SW_HIDE)
        Sleep(100)
    Next
EndFunc   ;==>_ServiceChange

Is there a way to tie it to the running task sc.exe or the shellexecutewait so that the message stays open but closes just before the end?

Any thoughts?

Presuming the splash text is part of the same script, the simpler solution is to wait until the function has finished.

SplashTextOn("Service Editing", "Starting Services Reset." & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
"Please Wait", 300, 90)
_ServiceChange($aServiceKeysSafeDisabled, "disabled") ; call function ;Sleep(25000)
SplashOff()

Edit

Perhaps I didn't read the question propery. You might want to look at ProcessExists.

put it in the Func. SplashOn before the 'for' , Splashoff after the next.

edited a bit so it just starts them...dont need to be disabling stuff and forgetting about it. but since your running sc many times over i think you would get a flicker if you tied it to that process.

Global $aServiceKeysSafeDisabled[4] = [3, "AppMgmt", "bthserv", "CertPropSvc"] ; array of things to change

_ServiceChange($aServiceKeysSafeDisabled, "disabled") ; call function

; and the func i made with the help of others on the forum
Func _ServiceChange(ByRef $aArrayType, $sSetValue) ; Changes Services  Author = Chimaera
    SplashTextOn("Service Editing", "Starting Services Reset." & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Please Wait", 300, 90)
    For $d = 1 To $aArrayType[0]
;~     _ArrayDisplay( $aArrayType) ; >>>>>>>>>>>>>>  Error Checking
        run('cmd /k sc.exe start ' & $aServiceKeysSafeDisabled[$d])
        Sleep(1000)
    Next
    SplashOff()
EndFunc   ;==>_ServiceChange

Ok that works either way so thx.

But im wondering if i can make it work with a progress bar instead so it has a visual indication that something is happening?

ProgressOn("Service Editing", "Starting Services Reset.","Please Wait", 300, 90)
_ServiceChange($aServiceKeysSafeDisabled, "disabled") ; call function ;Sleep(25000)
ProgressOff()

Whilst this creates the progress bar how do i make it monitor the

_ServiceChange($aServiceKeysSafeDisabled, "disabled")

I looked at ProcessExists & StdoutRead etc but im not using those processes to be able to monitor them

a normal progress bar, divided by the number of elements in the array, that increments every time through the loop?

hmm the arrays are different sizes for each OS

but this bit does the actual work

Func _ServiceChange(ByRef $aArrayType, $sSetValue) ; Changes Services  Author = Chimaera
For $d = 1 To $aArrayType[0]
;~   _ArrayDisplay( $aArrayType) ; >>>>>>>>>>>>>>  Error Checking
  ShellExecuteWait('sc.exe', 'config "' & $aArrayType[$d] & '" start= ' & $sSetValue, "", "", @SW_HIDE)
  Sleep(1000)
Next
EndFunc   ;==>_ServiceChange

and $Arraytype holds the array with the amount of keys

Would it be possible to add some extra in here maybe?

Instead of a hard sleep, what about doing a "If ProcessExists() then _WaitLonger()" call?
