Making a script that will loop a function until a directory is empty

2 posts in this topic

I have a script that resizes images so that they're usable on an intranet site. Once the image is resized it's copied to a finished directory. I'd like to have the script loop until the initial directory is empty. I've see the DirGetSize be mentioned but I'm not quite sure how to implement it in the use I'm looking for.

Here's my code so far:

Opt('MouseCoordMode',0)
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

#region ---Au3Recorder generated code Start (v3.3.7.0) ---

#region --- Internal functions Au3Recorder Start ---
Func _Au3RecordSetup()
Opt('WinWaitDelay',100)
Opt('WinDetectHiddenText',1)
Opt('MouseCoordMode',0)
EndFunc

Func _WinWaitActivate($title,$text,$timeout=0)
WinWait($title,$text,$timeout)
If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text)
WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout)
EndFunc

#endregion --- Internal functions Au3Recorder End ---

Do

Run('C:\WINDOWS\system32\mspaint.exe')
_WinWaitActivate("untitled - Paint","")
MouseClick("left",12,28,1)
MouseClick("left",30,70,1)
_WinWaitActivate("Open","")
MouseClick("left",59,163,1)
MouseClick("left",127,120,1)
MouseClick("left",504,364,1)
MouseClick("left",456,47,1)
MouseClick("left",476,132,1)
MouseClick("left",331,69,1)
Sleep(500)
MouseClick("left",331,69,1)
MouseMove(143,85)
MouseDown("left")
MouseMove(142,85)
MouseUp("left")
MouseClick("left",514,359,1)
_WinWaitActivate("Paint","")
MouseClick("left",111,33,1)
MouseClick("left",118,68,1)
_WinWaitActivate("Stretch and Skew","")
Send("??{TAB}??")
MouseClick("left",306,42,1)
_WinWaitActivate("Paint","")
MouseClick("left",15,33,1)
MouseClick("left",31,102,1)
_WinWaitActivate("Save As","")
MouseClick("left",135,70,1)
MouseClick("left",507,360,1)
MouseClick("left",507,360,1)
_WinWaitActivate("Paint","")
MouseClick("left",16,32,1)
MouseClick("left",55,360,1)
#endregion --- Au3Recorder generated code End ---

ChrisLanders,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

I would use FileListToArray to get an array of all the files in the folder. You can then loop through the list and use ShellExecute to open them into Paint (assuming that is the default app for their file type) - or Run as you already do but using the filename as a parameter. You run the loop for as many times as you have files - and then you should have actioned all the files. :)

I would also look at actioning the various Paint menus and dialogs directly using AutoIt rather than the messy (and very unreliable) MouseClick method you are using at the moment - after all that is what it is designed to do. ;)
