Detect Manual Pause of Script

3 posts in this topic

Hi guys, I am writing a script to be used by others. For liability issues, I want to keep a log of the script, including when it is started, paused, resumed, and terminated.

To record when it is started is trivial.

To record when it is terminated can be done with OnAutoItExitRegister("MyTestFunc")

How about recording when it is paused and resumed? By that, I mean users can manually click on the System Tray to pause and resume the script... There should be a way to check the  status, but I don't know how...

Please help!

Do you want the users to be able to pause/resume the script?

chaichaoyi,

I would suggest removing the automatic actions from the tray icon and substituting your own click handler. That way you can write to your log as it happens: ;)

#include <Constants.au3>

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "On_Exit")

Opt("TrayOnEventMode", 1) ; Use event trapping for tray menu
Opt("TrayMenuMode", 3)    ; Default tray menu items will not be shown.

; Set functions for left click
TraySetOnEvent($TRAY_EVENT_PRIMARYUP, "On_Click")

; Flag to indicate status
$fPaused = False

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func On_Click()
    ; Toggle the flag
    $fPaused = Not $fPaused
    ; Write log
    If $fPaused Then
        ConsoleWrite("Paused" & @CRLF)
    Else
        ConsoleWrite("Running" & @CRLF)
    EndIf
EndFunc

Func On_Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc
All clear? :)
