Make image with current time then write it to html

Recommended Posts


Hi all

sorry to make 2 posts for the same function but this thing is weird

i wan to to make autoit capture the screen and save it to current time .jpg

then make a html file and write in it <br><img src=current time.jpg>

assuming that the both functions will be made exactly at the same time

i tried this

#include <ScreenCapture.au3>

_ScreenCapture_Capture(@MDAY & "-" & @MON & "-" & @YEAR & " " & @HOUR & "." & @MIN & "," & @SEC & ".jpg")
FileWrite("new.html", '<br><img src="' & @MDAY & "-" & @MON & "-" & @YEAR & " " & @HOUR & "." & @MIN & "," & @SEC & '.jpg" width="304" height="228">')

it is working fine but sometimes when i run the script it will not work cuz sometimes the script operating time takes 2 seconds

or maybe when i started the script it was at the end of the second so it couldn't complete the 2 operations at the same sec

the _screencapture will make a jpg file with the name 23-09-2013 23.41,5

and the file write will make a html file written in it <br><img src="23-09-2013 23.41,6.jpg" width="304" height="228">

i tried to put the _screencapture function inside a variable but it didnt worked

any ideas how can i make the both funcs operate at the same sec or make filewrite take the time from _ScreenCapture_Capture or any other solution ?

Put the time into a variable and use that instead of trying to match times on both. Something like this.

#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
$sTime = @MDAY & "-" & @MON & "-" & @YEAR & " " & @HOUR & "." & @MIN & "," & @SEC
_ScreenCapture_Capture( $sTime & ".jpg")
FileWrite("new.html", '<br><img src="' & $sTime & '.jpg" width="304" height="228">')

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.
