do actions in every three hours

16 posts in this topic

hello all.

please help me how i can write a script which will perform some actions every three hours?

e.g run a program at 00:00, 03:00, 06:00, 09:00, 12:00, 15:00, 18:00, 21:00

thanks

I would just say If @hour equaled any of those times then perform the action.  Put that in a while loop that sleeps for an hour every time around,

what is wrong with this code?

Func Restart()
for $hours in '0:00:00', '7:00:00'
next
If _nowtime($hours) Then
    _Skype_Shutdown()
    _Skype_Start()
EndIf
EndFunc

Your For loop is all wrong, you can't use For In without a collection of objects or an array. You can't use a string like you're using as a start and/or finish of the loop you're attempting. You have your If check outside the For loop, so it will only check it after the for loop has finished so unless it completes at whatever _NowTime is, it's never going to run the Skype functions.


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.

Hi beqa,

Try AdlibRegister and all the stuff you need to do in a function.

Cheers

Local $aArray[8]
$aArray[0] = "0:00:00"
$aArray[1] = "3:00:00"
$aArray[2] = "6:00:00"
$aArray[3] = "9:00:00"
$aArray[4] = "12:50:00"
$aArray[5] = "15:00:00"
$aArray[6] = "18:00:00"
$aArray[7] = "21:00:00"
If _nowtime($hours) Then
for $hours in $aArray
next
_Skype_Shutdown()
_Skype_Start()

Beqa,

Your code is not getting the array value, you are using an array as a variable.

I made some modification to your code, and two more examples.

; With your code

Func Restart()
    Local $hours
    Local $aArray[8]
    $aArray[0] = "0:00:00"
    $aArray[1] = "3:00:00"
    $aArray[2] = "6:00:00"
    $aArray[3] = "9:00:00"
    $aArray[4] = "12:50:00"
    $aArray[5] = "15:00:00"
    $aArray[6] = "18:00:00"
    $aArray[7] = "21:00:00"
    If _NowTime = $hours[0] Or $hours[1] Or $hours[2] Or $hours[3] Or $hours[4] Or $hours[5] Or $hours[6] Or $hours[7] Then
        _Skype_Shutdown()
        _Skype_Start()
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>Restart


;Exemple #1

Local $aArray[8]
$aArray[0] = "0:00:00"
$aArray[1] = "3:00:00"
$aArray[2] = "6:00:00"
$aArray[3] = "9:00:00"
$aArray[4] = "12:50:00"
$aArray[5] = "15:00:00"
$aArray[6] = "18:00:00"
$aArray[7] = "21:00:00"

While 1
    $now = @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC

    For $x = UBound($aArray) To 0
        If $now = $aArray[$x] Then Skype()
        Sleep(50)
    Next

WEnd

Func Skype()
    _Skype_Shutdown()
    _Skype_Start()
EndFunc   ;==>Skype

;Exemple #2

AdlibRegister("Skype", 10800000);every 3 hours

While 1
    Sleep(50)
WEnd

Func Skype()
    _Skype_Shutdown()
    _Skype_Start()
EndFunc   ;==>Skype
 

Cheers

Where did while 3 come from? Do you have something against while 1? -_0

I mistyped once and stuck with it :)

It's a trade mark now.

I shall call it "The JohnOne Loop".

With a loop similar to the JohnOne loop.. :)

$vRunOnce = 1
While 1
    Switch @HOUR
        Case 00, 03, 06, 09, 12, 15, 18, 21
            If @MIN > 00 And $vRunOnce = 0 Then $vRunOnce = 1
            If @MIN = 00 And $vRunOnce = 1 Then
                $vRunOnce = 0
                ConsoleWrite(@HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC & " - Something is supposed to be done now." & @LF)
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
Sleep(250)
WEnd
