Pause the script

Recommended Posts

madhukar

Hi,

I need my script to wait till it saves the file. I use Sleep() and it halts the script for specific amount of time but when I save the file the time taken varies depending upont the size and the system response time. Can anyone help?

Thanks

Hi, madhukar. Can you please post the code you're using to "save the file". Depending on how you're doing this exactly, there are a couple of ways you can go about this.

Hi Jlogan,

I use the function save($file)

Function save($filename)

{

Send("^s")

sleep(2500)

send($filename)

send("{ENTER}")

}

If you just use FileWrite/FileWriteLine the file is saved as soon as the function ends (because FileOpen/FileClose is done implicitely) and the execution of the script continues.

If you use FileOpen/FileWrite/FileWriteLine/FileClose and you want to be sure that the file is saved to disk before you close the file you should use function FileFlush.

Which program do you send "^s" to? Means: Which program do you automate?
