what can I use for a tickcount

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

So back when I use to mess with Javascript I use to use a tickcount to determine how much time is passed I cant seem to figure out a way to do this in autoit. What I am needing to do is start a tickcount and after x amount of seconds the script does what I want. Ex code with what I would like to happen:

HotKeySet("{END}", "Terminate")



Global $answer = InputBox("Question", "¿WHAT DRIVE LETTER?", "D", "", _
- 1, -1, 0, 0)

While 1
ToolTip("RUNNING PRESS END TO QUIT",0,0)

Local $sType = DriveGetType($answer & ":" & "")
If $sType <> "" then
ToolTip("FOUND DRIVE " & $answer,0,0)

;;;EX>>>>>StartTime = GetTickCount(); ;;start tickcount here ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;I NEED HELP HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Local $sStatus = DriveStatus($answer & ":")

If $sStatus = "ready" Then
ToolTip("GOOD DRIVE",0,0)
MsgBox(4096, "GOOD", "DRIVE IS GOOD",2)
ToolTip("OPENING",0,0)
CDTray($answer & ":","open")

Else
ToolTip("WAITING FOR DRIVE " & $answer &" TO READ",0,0)
sleep(1000)
EndIf

Else
ToolTip("NOT DETECTING A DRIVE IN " & $answer,0,0)
SLEEP(1000)
EndIf

;;;;ex> Endtime = 120000 // JS USED MILISECONDS OFC SECONDS WOULD BE FINE TOO ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;I NEED HELP HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
;;;;ex> If StartTime >= Endtime then ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;I NEED HELP HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ToolTip("DRIVE MAY BE BAD TAKING TOO LONG TO READ/DETECT",0,0)
EndIf

WEnd




Func Terminate()
Exit 0
EndFunc

Hopefully that wasn't too confusing and someone can help me out!

TimerInit and TimerDiff


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.

How to ask questions the smart way!

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
