-make a condition to see if it is the new day

- if it is true run a message box

this is my code nee some help

 

#include <Date.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
; Add 1 days to today
$sDate = @YEAR & "/" & @MON & "/" & @MDAY ; the current date;
$sNewDate = _DateAdd('d', 1, $sDate); we add one day to the current day;
Sleep(2000);we wait for 2 seconds
While 1
If $sDate = $sNewDate Then ; condition to check if the current date equals our newDate
Sleep(5000)
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Today + 1 days:" & $sNewDate); if the condition is true then message popup

You aren't updating your $sDate, so it will always be yesterday.

While 1
    If @YEAR & "/" & @MON & "/" & @MDAY = $sNewDate Then ; condition to check if the current date equals our newDate
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Today + 1 days:" & $sNewDate); if the condition is true then message popup
    EndIf
    Sleep(5000)
 WEnd

How about this idea?  It's something to work from.

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

#include <Date.au3>

Global $current_mday = @MDAY

Do
  If $current_mday <> @MDAY Then ; condition to check if the current date equals our newDate
    $current_mday = @MDAY
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Today + 1 days: " & _DateAdd('d', 1, @YEAR & "/" & @MON & "/" & @MDAY)) ; if the condition is true then message popup
  EndIf
Until False

Edit: code addition

Every time I change my computer's date by one day the msgbox pops up.

thank you for replay

i like your solution is there any idea about the burning CPU

you use the result in the message box i need it to be true  by means

when i put my script in startup folder exactly after one day from it's execution  the message appears

yes, but as i said the result of new day after appears in the message  box you use @MDAY and add one day to it in the message box

look at my script

take current day

add one day to it

if it is the new day

message box appears

it may add more than one day

and it may not just open message box also you can run ccleaner  have you got the idea

The best way would be to schedule a task for the $sNewDate.

The scheduled task cmd can be a one-liner, like:

consolewrite(@AutoItExe & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteLine "MsgBox(0, ''Hello World!'', ''Hi!'')"')

note: grab the output of the consolewrite for the actual task command.

That would use 0 cpu/ram

yes i agree with you, but schedule a task always have problem in the different OS windows7/windows8

camilla,

Is your goal to run CCleaner once per day, just after midnight?

....

there is one small problem which is the CPU when i run my code it is 100/100 need to low it

camilla,

Addressing the high usage of the CPU problem only.

Note jdelaney's script of post #2 - The sleep function is outside of the If...Then...EndIf function, but inside of the While...Wend loop (where it is supposed to be). This is the correct placement of the Sleep function.

Your script of post #1 has the Sleep function, but it is inside of the If...EndIf which is only accessed when the If statement is true.   

Notice jaberwacky's script of post #3. This script, when run, causes a higher than necessary CPU usage because of the absence of a Sleep function within the Do...Until loop.

      Hi,
      Ones(some times twice) a month I get an e-mail with zip file, which has price updates from a supplier.
      I have to upload the file to an FTP to get it processed.
      When uploading the file, it will get "timestamped" with the time and date at which time the file was uploaded.
      Normally this is fine, because I mostly upload the file the same day.
      Sometimes it may take 1 or 2 days before I can upload the file.
      For historical purpose, I would like to have the file timestamped with the original date.
      I have tried using:  _FTP_Command ( $hFTPSession, "MFCT YYYYMMDDHHMMSS path") 
      however this command does not work or change the timestamp as I expected.
      Does anyone now a way how I can change the timestamp of a FTP-file?

      Hi, for a script of mine, I wish to keep a time frame on till how the program will work.. basically, I want the program to read the date and if the read date < 'a particular date', the program continues, else it exit. I don't want to read the time from the computer as the program can be fooled by resetting the pc time. is there a way to read time from internet - so that the user cannot fool the program by date reset? thanks

      I've been looking through some different functions(not sure if that's the right word) to get the Date and time and I can't find one that doesn't include "/ " or ":" in what is returned.

      I'm trying to create a file name with this format "QuickConfig_MMDDYYYY_HHMM"  (doesn't matter if 24 or 12hr format)
      #include <Date.au3> Func _SaveConfig MouseClick('primary',155, 46, 1, 0) ;clicks save as WinWait('Save bluePRINT Configuration As...','', 4) MouseClick('primary',632, 47, 1, 0) ;clicks the file path bar $Documents = @MyDocumentsDir $FilePath = $Documents & '\BP3 Configs' Send($FilePath) Send('{ENTER}') MouseClick('primary',166, 580, 1, 0) ;clicks file name bar $FileName = 'QuickConfig_' & _NowDate & '_' & _NowTime Send($FileName) Send('{ENTER}') EndFunc  
       
      I'm wondering if there is a function somewhere to do this?

      I use Autoit for a while, already made some automation for a TV station's master control room with it. I made a UDF to easily work with PAL timecode and time with milliseconds, convert, add or subtract them. Feel free to use it if you want something like this
