If value goes down

3 posts in this topic

Hey um, i don't really know how to explain this without confusing you guys so i'll give it my best shot... i hope that someone knows a solution to this; as again this is just me testing my ability with autoit.

I have a form that i made and the value goes down randomly (for the sake of testing) and when it goes down to whatever value randomly, it will shoot back up to 100% eventually and repeat the process at a random intervel. 

(I guess you could think of it like a health bar? Not sure if thats the perfect description.)

 

I have a "while" loop going on where it constantly checks that value and make sure it is 100%. 

If it is 100% it will just set a label or something to "Full"  and if it is not 100%, it will go and say "Lowered" on that label.

It will say "Lowered" until it is 100%, obviously.

but thats not what i want; i want it to say decreased for a temporary amount of time like 1 second, or 2 seconds and then just wait for the value to go down again... but i have absolutetly NO idea how i would go about doing this , and i'm dang determinded to do this somehow. 

If anyone knows how i would go about doing this please help. 

 
 
 
While 1


Detect()




Wend


Func Detect()
$read = GuiCtrlRead($Label1)


If $read = 100 Then
GuiCtrlSetData($Label2,"Full")
Else
GuiCtrlSetData($Label2,"Decreased!")
EndIf
 Endfunc

For the sake of this i didn't bother adding the includes and stuff since i know that's well.

I'm hoping someone has the intelligence to help me with this

I'm giving an example using random numbers between 1-100. Hopefully, it will set you on the right track. If you have questions, feel free to ask.

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

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 298, 75)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Random Number:", 8, 8, 87, 17)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("0", 96, 8, 36, 17) ; The random number - start with zero
$Label3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Status:", 8, 40, 37, 17)
$Label4 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("No Change", 48, 40, 96, 17) ; The status
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hit Me", 192, 24, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button1
            $read = GUICtrlRead($Label2) ; read current number
            $newNum = Random(1, 100, 1) ; generate a new random number
            GUICtrlSetData($Label2, $newNum) ; set the new random number on the program
            If $newNum < $read Then
                GUICtrlSetData($Label4, "Lowered")
            ElseIf $newNum > $read Then
                GUICtrlSetData($Label4, "Increased")
            Else
                GUICtrlSetData($Label4, "No Change") ; if not lower or higher than previous, the only possibility left is the same number was generated
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd
