Timing-Out a script -- How to?

Recommended Posts

1xcalibur1

Hey,

I have a script that runs every minute.

In the long run I get the attached image.

So my question is how can I prevent this from happening?

Is there a way to timeout the script?

Thanks

It depends on the script you run. Can you post the code so we can have a look at it?

It looks like you are not exiting the script and yet you run it over and over again. You need to Exit.

Or you could put the script in a continuous loop and let it Sleep for 60 seconds.

Sure:

#include 

Opt("TrayAutoPause", 0)

$oIE = _IECreate("https://blablabla")
Local $begin = TimerInit()
_IENavigate($oIE, "https://blablabla2")

Local $dif = TimerDiff($begin)
$string = $dif
WinClose("blablabla2","Address Combo Contro")

Run('notepad.exe')
WinWait("Untitled - Notepad")
If Not WinActive("Untitled - Notepad") Then WinActivate("Untitled - Notepad")
Send($string)
WinClose("Untitled - Notepad")
WinWaitActive("Notepad")
Sleep(500)
Send("{ENTER}")
Sleep(2000)
Send("LoadingTime.txt{ENTER}")
Sleep(500)
WinWait("Confirm Save As")
If WinActive("Confirm Save As") Then Send("{LEFT}{ENTER}")

I might as well mention that everything runs fine most of the time.

It seems that IE occasionally "hangs" at the first link as it waits for it to fully load. Any chance I can timeout that?

Set parameter $f_wait = 0 for _IECreate and _IENavigate. Then use _IELoadWait and cancel after a specified time has elapsed.

Awesome!

One more question,

is there a "goto" in AutoIt?

I'd like to just do the Notepad part in case the window does reach it's timeout period.

Thanks!

No. Check the returncode of _IELoadWait and then use IF / Then / Else / EndIf.
