#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I want to make progress bar which would count seconds. For example progress is for 10min

ProgressOn("Progress Meter", "Increments every second", "0 ")
For $i = 1 to 600 ; i can change whatever number but its same
    sleep(1000)
    ProgressSet( $i, $i & " secs")
Next
ProgressSet(600 , "Done", "Complete")
sleep(500)
ProgressOff()

Its really simple but cant figure out lol.

This will give you the percentage that you need for the progress bar increments

ProgressOn("Progress Meter", "Increments every second", "0 ")
For $i = 1 To 120 ; i can change whatever number but its same
     Sleep(1000)
     ProgressSet(($i / 120) * 100, $i & " secs")
Next
ProgressSet(600, "Done", "Complete")
Sleep(500)
ProgressOff()

ProgressOn is a predefined GUI with a progress bar, you'd have to make your own GUI and ProgressBar, or you could use the one that's linked in my signature that allows you to create a sizable GUI with progress bar and label.

Yes it's possible, look at the style and extended style settings for GUICreate. BTW, the UDF in my signature uses the $WS_POPUP and $WS_DLGFRAME styles. The borders are very small and there's no titlebar. Edited by BrewManNH

I just saw I can make it with simple gui.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ProgressConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 243, 23, 329, 312)
$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(0, 0, 238, 17)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

For $i = 1 To 600 ; i can change whatever number but its same
     Sleep(1000)
     GUICtrlSetData($progress1,$i)
Next

But how to make it for 10mins too? Like ProgressSet(($i / 600) * 100, $i & " secs")

but with guictrlsetdata

You need to convert the current time to a percentage of the total time, see the code below, I have included comments to show how to do it.

#region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$TimeToRun = InputBox("Time to run", "Enter the time (in minutes) you want this to run)")
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 243, 23, 329, 312)
$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(0, 0, 238, 17)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#endregion ### END Koda GUI section ###
$Time = $TimeToRun * 60 ; minutes to run
For $i = 1 To $Time ; $Time = $TimeToRun * 60 seconds
    Sleep(1000)
    ; ($i/$Time) * 100 = current count divided by total time, times 100 gives you percentage of elapsed time
    GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, ($i / $Time) * 100) 
Next

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Start")
#region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$TimeToRun = InputBox("Time to run", "Enter the time (in minutes) you want this to run)")
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 238, 17, 330, 310,$WS_POPUP) ; not sure about $ws_popup. But it works(deletes borders)
$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(0, 0, 238, 17)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

#endregion ### END Koda GUI section ###
While 1
sleep(10)
Wend
Func Start()
$Time = $TimeToRun * 60 ; minutes to run
For $i = 1 To $Time ; $Time = $TimeToRun * 60 seconds
    Sleep(1000)
    ;($i/$Time) * 100 = current count divided by total time, times 100 gives you percentage of elapsed time
    GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, ($i / $Time) * 100)
Next
EndFunc

So i also placed hotkey, when you press esc counting starts. Now how I should make this to be always on window? I mean i want to be it always visible.

Look at the extended styles for GUICreate, specifically $WS_EX_TOPMOST.
