Using a progress in a gui

Recommended Posts

Chimaera

Hey, ive been messing around with a bit of code that was posted for a simple backup script(creds to the author)

and whilst it works fine i wanted to make it work in a gui rather than the popup progress bar, but the problem is i cant seem to get them working together.

This is the original

Func _CopyFolder($sSourceFolder, $sDestFolder)
Local $ipct
DirRemove($sDestFolder, 1)
Local $iSourceSize = DirGetSize($sSourceFolder), $iDestSize
Local $pid = Run(@AutoItExe & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteLine "DirCopy(''' & $sSourceFolder & ''', ''' & $sDestFolder & ''')"')
ProgressOn("Copy Progress For " & $sSourceFolder, "Please Wait...")
Do
$iDestSize = DirGetSize($sDestFolder)
$ipct = Int(($iDestSize / $iSourceSize) * 100)
ProgressSet($ipct, $ipct & ' Percent Complete')
Sleep(20)
Until Not ProcessExists($pid)
ProgressOff()
EndFunc ;==>_CopyFolder

and the line from the gui is

$hProgress = GUICtrlCreateProgress(30, 440, 270, 23)

and its called from a button press like this.

_CopyFolder(@UserProfileDir & "\Desktop", $sDestination & '\Desktop')

i tried changing the copy folder to progressSET instead of ON but it wont have it

i tried adding $hProgress = to the progressON to reuse the variable

Do i need to also create text boxes for the percentage done stuff as well to get it to work or am i missing something stupid?

You'd need to update the progress bar by using GUICtrlSetData with a percentage from 1 to 100.

Yes, but in a normal filecopy, your script halts until the file copy has completed if I remember right. So if you're copying only one file the progress bar would go from 1 to 100 with no updates in between. You'd need to copy the file in chunks, using something like the LargeFileCopy UDF, so you can update the progress.

Got it working now thx

Im mainly doing folders so not to bad but yes its 0-100 for every folder.

Is there a way to make it work across the copy rather than the folders without major surgery?

What i mean if this is the commands

_CopyFolder(@UserProfileDir & "\Folder1", $sDestination & '\Folder1')
_CopyFolder(@UserProfileDir & "\Folder2", $sDestination & '\Folder2')
_CopyFolder(@UserProfileDir & "\Folder3", $sDestination & '\Folder3')
_CopyFolder(@UserProfileDir & "\Folder4", $sDestination & '\Folder4')

Could i put these together in a function maybe and monitor the function process instead?

Then its just 0 - 100 once not for every file

If that makes any sense

FileCopy/FileMove are blocking functions and thus nothing will happen until the function has completed its request. Look at the Copy UDF if you want to update a progress bar in real time.

Chimaera,

The technique used in this script might be useful. It does not use a gui progress bar but can be easily adapted.

;
; copy folder and subfolders with progress
;

_CopyFolder(@scriptdir, @scriptdir & '\Temp out folder')

func _CopyFolder($sSourceFolder,$sDestFolder)

    dirremove($sDestFolder,1)
    local $iSourceSize = DirGetSize($sSourceFolder), $iDestSize
    local $pid = Run(@AutoItExe & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteLine "DirCopy(''' & $sSourceFolder & ''', ''' & $sDestFolder & ''')"')
    ProgressOn("Copy Progress", "Please Wait...")
    Do
        $iDestSize = dirgetsize($sDestFolder)
        local $ipct = int(($iDestSize/$iSourceSize)*100)
        ProgressSet($ipct,$ipct & ' percent complete')
        sleep(20)
    Until not ProcessExists($pid)
    ProgressOff()

endfunc

chimaera,

Sorry, fingers getting ahead of brain! Posted the wrong code. This might help.

; *** Start added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
; *** End added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
;
; copy folder and subfolders with progress
;

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Add_Constants=n

local $gui010 = guicreate('My Copy With Progresss')
local $prg010 = guictrlcreateprogress(10,10,380,20)
local $btn010 = guictrlcreatebutton('Start Copy',10,300,380,20)
                guisetstate()

while 1

    switch guigetmsg()
        case $gui_event_close
            Exit
        case $btn010
            _CopyFolder(@scriptdir, @scriptdir & '\Temp out folder')
    EndSwitch

wend

func _CopyFolder($sSourceFolder,$sDestFolder)

    dirremove($sDestFolder,1)
    local $iSourceSize = DirGetSize($sSourceFolder), $iDestSize
    local $pid = Run(@AutoItExe & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteLine "DirCopy(''' & $sSourceFolder & ''', ''' & $sDestFolder & ''')"')
    Do
        $iDestSize = dirgetsize($sDestFolder)
        local $ipct = int(($iDestSize/$iSourceSize)*100)
        guictrlsetdata($prg010,$ipct)
        sleep(20)
    Until not ProcessExists($pid)
    guictrlsetdata($prg010,' ')

endfunc
