exit script after a specified time

Recommended Posts

Heya :)

Im looking for an error-code or something that runs in the Background and stops the time. it should Exit after... like 5min.

i have a Batch script that runs 12 different autoit.exe's. sometimes These scripts just hang up...

My Problem is that im letting them run during the night and so they shouldnt just do nothing.. better to Exit them and maybe write a file that the script xy got closed/killed.

the code Looks like:

start.bat:

"script1.exe"

.....

"script12.exe"

 

1 of These scripts Looks like:

#include "library.au3"

Programstart()

......

Programend()

ive hoped for something like:

#include "library.au3"

countdownstart()

Programstart()

......

Programend()

func countdownstart()

     "after 5min elapsed"

            Exit

endfunc

 

im using a library that im including in every of These scripts... i hope i havent told it that confusing.. ^^"

Use TimerInit at the start of the script. Use AdlibRegister to register a function that checks the timer every n seconds and exits the script if the limit is exceeded.

I dont get that... i've tried this:

Global $blubbfisch = TimerInit()
  
AdlibRegister(errortimer(),1000 )

While 1
   Sleep(500)
;~    MsgBox(0, "", "Ich bin cool", 1)
WEnd

Func errortimer()
;~    MsgBox(0, "", TimerDiff($blubbfisch)/1000, 1)
   If TimerDiff($blubbfisch)/1000 > 5 Then Exit
EndFunc

it wont Exit... :(

Hi.

;OPTION 1
AdlibRegister("_Exit", 10000)
 
;do stuff
 
Func _Exit()
    AdlibUnregister("_Exit")
    Exit
EndFunc
 
;OPTION 2
Local $hTimer = TimerInit()
 
;dostuff
 
While 1
    If TimerDiff($hTimer) >= 10000 Then _Exit()
    Sleep(10)
WEnd
 
Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc
Edit: Please use autoit code tags to post your code, thanks.

Set 10000 (10 seconds) to 1000*60*5 (= 5 Minutes)
