Please help on time automation

13 posts in this topic

Hello:

I want to run a program on specific minute of the clock, every hour. For example: the program will execute automatically on 12:25 pm, then again on 1:25 pm, then again on 2:25, and so on

 

Please help.

Look in the help file for the macros @HOUR, @MIN. Also, look at the If statement in there.


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

I looked into it. But I couldn't find it specific. And taking me very long :( . Could you please code?

Example:

I want to run notepad.exe in every 25th minute of every hour.

Thanks

Global $fClose = False ; Global variable to indicate close HotKey press
HotKeySet("!{ESC}", "_Exit") ; ALT+ESC

While 1
    If $fClose Then ExitLoop
    If @MIN = 25 And @SEC = 0 Then ; @MIN will only be = 25 every hour
        Run("notepad.exe")
        ; Do other stuff here
    EndIf
    Sleep(10) ; Avoid high CPU usage
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    $fClose = True
EndFunc

But won't this start Notepad more than 100 times at "xx:25:00" ?

@SEC is 0 only every minute and @MIN is 25 only hour.

I don't see a problem.

Did you run it?

 

Opps... yes, now I see.

My mistake, must have been blind. Sorry ;-)

niyaz, please also note that (your experience in this thread notwithstanding), we do not make a habit of spoon feeding code to people. This forum is for those who would like assistance with their own scripts, rather than simply asking someone to do it for them. In the future if you have questions we are happy to help, but please be prepared to show us some of the effort you've already put into it. ;)

Hi JLogan3o12,

I did not ask for something (I'm not the post opener).
I only misunderstood the code of DatMCEyeBall.

This will run the script multiple times, since the loop is not sleeping for 1 second.

 

Global $fClose = False ; Global variable to indicate close HotKey press
HotKeySet("!{ESC}", "_Exit") ; ALT+ESC

While 1
    If $fClose Then ExitLoop
    If @MIN = 25 And @SEC = 0 Then ; @MIN will only be = 25 every hour
        Run("notepad.exe")
        ; Do other stuff here
    EndIf
    Sleep(10) ; Avoid high CPU usage
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    $fClose = True
EndFunc

 

 corrected:

While 1
    If $fClose Then ExitLoop
    If @MIN = 25 And @SEC = 0 Then ; @MIN will only be = 25 every hour
        Run("notepad.exe")
        Sleep(1000)
        ; Do other stuff here
    EndIf
    Sleep(10) ; Avoid high CPU usage
WEnd

Would still look into task scheduler for this...no point having a script running to only be used so infrequently
