How can I stop my gif?

Recommended Posts

I have a gif that I would like to play while waiting for the results of tracert. I can't get it to stop once the process closes. Any insight?

Here is the code...

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPIEx.au3>
#include <GIFAnimation.au3>
#include <Process.au3>
Global $address, $hedit, $loop, $stop, $traceaddress
$loadGif='C:\temp\loadinganimation.gif'

        BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL, $ES_MULTILINE, $WS_HSCROLL, $ES_NOHIDESEL))

$traceaddress=GUICtrlCreateInput("",50,60,100)

What process plays the .gif?  Start the tracert and play the .gif with a ProcessExists loop to monitor your tracert.  When that ProcessExists returns a 0, use  ProcessClose to stop your .gif.  Is this not possible?

Meds.  They're not just for breakfast anymore. :'(

The GIF begins when the tracert button is pressed. I have tried to check that IF NOT ProcessExists('TRACERT.EXE') exists Then delete the gif. Does not seem to work.

AllSystemsGo,

You're missing this line:

_GIF_DeleteGIF($doGif)

 

Place it below this line:

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'tracert '&$trace&' >c:\temp\trace.txt',"",@SW_HIDE)

Will this delete from memory?  Remember, the .gif is running from memory, not from disc storage.

Forgive me if my analysis, my approach, my suggestions, my attitude in general are sophomoric, as I'm not nearly approaching a guru in scripting.

I see you are defining your .gif path with the following variable:

$loadGif='C:temploadinganimation.gif'
Check your file association for .gifs.  That should give you the process to close to stop the .gif.
 
It looks to me like lines 45 - 47 are the key here, though I may be way off base.  I hope a Mod comes in and corrects me, but I'm willing to brainstorm (or brainsprinkle, as the case may be - maybe it'll be a sunshower with a magnificent rainbow!)  If you change the variable $iPlay = 1 to $iPlay = 0 after Not ProcessExists(TRACERT.EXE), will that stop the .gif?  How about changing the GUISetState?  I know that might only hide the .gif, but it would be a work-around until the real fix reveals itself.  And I'm not particularly gifted in GUIs.
 
Another work-around: if i recall, a .gif can have a transparent background.  How about playing a different .gif after NOT ProcessExists(TRACERT.EXE), one that's tranparent  and has no content other than the background.  It could even be 1 pixel x 1 pixel.
Just some ideas from somone who, rather than thinks out-of-the-box, never had a box with which to begin the thought process.
 
To be honest, I'm just posting to get M23 to have a great belly-laugh before realizing I'm really that ignorant.
 
At the risk of showing the whole forum I'm a fool, I post now.

I was using the wrong variable to stop the GIF. I'm a goober.
