Problem getting a script to repeat itself

Recommended Posts

BrokenThumb

Hey Guys,

Haven't posted for awhile, but I ran into a new problem today while I was trying to make this script.

So I have a networked temperature monitor in my server room and I'm trying to download the graph that it creates and have it show up in a small GUI window. Now I've gotten it to download and display just fine, the issue happens when I try to get it to re-download the image, update the GUI and then do it again.

Here's what I have so far:

#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

;Pre-Defined Variables
$hWGoose = "http://1.1.1.1/graph?width=500&height=200&time=900&refresh=0&dev=011BBCAB14000019&sen=1&sen=2&dev=2D0000008DFBC812&sen=1&sen=3" 

;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Local $hDownload = InetGet($hWGoose, @TempDir & "\test.png", 1, 1)
Do
    Sleep(100)
Until InetGetInfo($hDownload, 2) ;Check if the download is complete
InetClose($hDownload) ;Close the handle to release resources

;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Global $hGUI, $hImage, $hGraphic

;Create GUI
$hGUI = GUICreate("DFW WeatherGoose", 400, 200)
GUISetState()

;Load PNG image
_GDIPlus_Startup()
$hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile(@TempDir & "\test.png")

;Draw PNG image
$hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($hGUI)
_GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImage($hGraphic, $hImage, 0, 0)

;Loop until user exits
Do
   Local $hDownload = InetGet($hWGoose, @TempDir & "\test.png", 1, 1)
   Do
    Sleep(100)
   Until ((InetGetInfo($hDownload, 2)) Or (GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE)) ;Check if download is complete or exit GUI
   Local $nBytes = InetGetInfo($hDownload, 0)
   InetClose($hDownload) ;Close the handle to release resources
   
   _GDIPlus_Startup()
   $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile(@TempDir & "\test.png")


   $hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($hGUI)
   _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImage($hGraphic, $hImage, 0, 0)
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

;Clean up resources
_GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($hGraphic)
_GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage)
_GDIPlus_Shutdown()

The problem seems to be under the Do, I've got this section and when I comment it out it works fine, just no looping like I want:

;Loop until user exits
Do
  ; Local $hDownload = InetGet($hWGoose, @TempDir & "\test.png", 1, 1)
   ;Do
    ;Sleep(100)
   ;Until ((InetGetInfo($hDownload, 2)) Or (GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE)) ;Check if download is complete or exit GUI
   ;Local $nBytes = InetGetInfo($hDownload, 0)
   ;InetClose($hDownload) ;Close the handle to release resources
   
   _GDIPlus_Startup()
   $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile(@TempDir & "\test.png")


   $hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($hGUI)
   _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImage($hGraphic, $hImage, 0, 0)
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Ideally I want it to re-download the image and refresh the PNG every 60 seconds, but this is the only way I could think of looping the script. =

Any hints?

Hi, i made it loop, but it's weird as it loops only 3 or 4 times, and then proceeds as if it has downloaded the image... :S

#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

;Pre-Defined Variables
$hWGoose = "http://deadfix.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/pass.jpg"

;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Global $hGUI, $hImage, $hGraphic
Local $hDownload

;Create GUI
$hGUI = GUICreate("DFW WeatherGoose", 660, 800)
GUISetState()

;Load PNG image
_GDIPlus_Startup()
$hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile(@TempDir & "\test.png")

;Draw PNG image
$hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($hGUI)
_GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImage($hGraphic, $hImage, 0, 0)

;Loop until user exits
Do
   Function()
   Sleep(60000)
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Func Function()
    $hDownload = InetGet($hWGoose, @TempDir & "\test.png", 1, 1)
    Do
    Sleep(500)
    ConsoleWrite('Is it done?'&@CRLF)
    Until InetGetInfo($hDownload, 2) = True
    ConsoleWrite('Yes! Downloaded!'&@CRLF)
    InetClose($hDownload)
   _GDIPlus_Startup()
   $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile(@TempDir & "\test.png")
   $hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($hGUI)
   _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImage($hGraphic, $hImage, 0, 0)
   ConsoleWrite($hImage&@CRLF)
EndFunc

;Clean up resources
_GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($hGraphic)
_GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage)
_GDIPlus_Shutdown()

When i modify the link to something unavailable it will do what i described, if the link is accurate, it works right away...

Oh damn....thanks for checking me into Rehab guys. My script-fu isn't very powerful yet. I'm still pretty noobish.

NutStomper: I checked out your script and it worked, but I guess I was under the influence that DoUntil had to wrap around your script, so I'm a bit confused as to why it actually works.

careca: I'm going to mess with your script here in a bit and see how it works out. 

 

Edit: dang careca, your script is pretty slick! I like it!  :thumbsup:

Thanks for all the help today guys, not much of an active, but this is one of the better web communities I've worked with so kudos and what not :)

Looks like I need to read up on GDIPlus more.  :sweating:

Edit Edit: Just for grins this is what I was working on before NutStomper/careca helped sober up my script.

$hDownload = InetGet($hWGoose, @TempDir & "\test.png", 1, 1)

;Loop until user exits
Do
   
   IF InetGetInfo($hDownload, 2) then ;Check if download is complete or 
      InetClose($hDownload)
   
      _GDIPlus_Startup()
      $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile(@TempDir & "\test.png")


      $hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($hGUI)

Thanks for the updated script NutStomper.

This is what I've got so far, and it still works when minimized without the WM_PAINT section you have. (Though yours starts up much faster and the AdlibRegister section is pretty legit for getting it to repeat on a specific time clock) I've learned a ton in this thread already!

Can you take a look and tell me what you think of it?
