Timer Example with Very low cpu use **Updated

Recommended Posts

gil900

Hello.

I searched in the forum for goot timer script and found that no one did the simplest code and low cpu use.

some pepole don't need that their timer will think too much every 20ms.. in some used case it is a stupid idea to use TimerDiff() in fast loop(like 20ms sleep)

if the cpu was a human so he was supposed to complain...

so what i decided to do is a new timer that do the same thing but much easier for the processor..

this is the timer:

#NoTrayIcon
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)


Local $hForm = GUICreate("CounterTimer Sample", 184, 66, -1, 250, -1, BitOR($WS_EX_TOPMOST,$WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE))
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_ExitApp")
Local $Lbl_hour = GUICtrlCreateLabel("0", 16, 20, 40, 41, BitOR($SS_CENTER,$SS_CENTERIMAGE))
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 24, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
GUICtrlCreateLabel(":", 56, 16, 13, 41, BitOR($SS_CENTER,$SS_CENTERIMAGE))
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 24, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
Local $Lbl_min = GUICtrlCreateLabel("0", 72, 20, 40, 41, BitOR($SS_CENTER,$SS_CENTERIMAGE))
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 24, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
GUICtrlCreateLabel(":", 112, 16, 13, 41, BitOR($SS_CENTER,$SS_CENTERIMAGE))
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 24, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
Local $Lbl_sec = GUICtrlCreateLabel("0", 128, 20, 40, 41, BitOR($SS_CENTER,$SS_CENTERIMAGE))
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 24, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
Local $Lbl_disc = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Made by gil900", 40, 3, 100, 20, BitOR($SS_CENTER,$SS_CENTERIMAGE))
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Local $h = 0 , $m = 0 , $s = 0
While 1
    Sleep(1000)
    $s = $s+1
    If $s = 60 Then
        $s = 0
        $m = $m+1
        If $m < 60 Then GUICtrlSetData($Lbl_min,$m)
    EndIf
    If $m = 60 Then
        $m = 0
        $h = $h+1
        GUICtrlSetData($Lbl_min,$m)
        GUICtrlSetData($Lbl_hour,$h)
    EndIf
    GUICtrlSetData($Lbl_sec,$s)
WEnd


Func _ExitApp()
    GUIDelete()
    Exit
EndFunc

for the GUI work.. I just replaced the motor :)

EDIT:

i make a new Engine Based on TimerDiff.

I think it's the smallest example that someone did ..

#NoTrayIcon

Local $Lbl_hour = GUICtrlCreateLabel("0", 16, 20, 40, 41, BitOR($SS_CENTER,$SS_CENTERIMAGE))
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 24, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
GUICtrlCreateLabel(":", 56, 16, 13, 41, BitOR($SS_CENTER,$SS_CENTERIMAGE))

Local  $begin = TimerInit() , $h = 0 , $m = 0 , $s = 0

            $m = 0
            $h = $h+1
            GUICtrlSetData($Lbl_min,$m)
            GUICtrlSetData($Lbl_hour,$h)
        EndIf
        GUICtrlSetData($Lbl_sec,$s)
    EndIf
WEnd

Good luck getting that script to respond to any controls you might use with it, such as buttons or being able to close a GUI. The long sleep is going to make it very difficult to action any controls in a script. This would only work in OnEvent mode, and even then it would be sluggish.


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.

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.

I know.

But for my purpose I do not need more than that.

so i made this example for pepole like me..

In any case, the GUI closes easily when you want to close it.

Feel free to try

i make a new Engine Based on TimerDiff.

I think it's the smallest example that someone did ..

Local $Lbl_hour = GUICtrlCreateLabel("0", 16, 20, 40, 41, BitOR($SS_CENTER,$SS_CENTERIMAGE))
