While loop problem.

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I am trying to write to a file, but ONLY during a certain time of day. I do not want the loop to end. The error I get is: "Error: Wend statement with no matching while statment."

What I have so far is this: (I have also attached the autoit script file if that is easier to look at). 

$counter = 1
While $counter = 1 ; loops 
   If("063000" > @HOUR & @MIN & @SEC < "071500" ) Then  ; Determines if the time is between 6:30am and 7:15am  
 FileDelete("test.txt") ; Deletes test.txt file (assuming it is already there)
 $file = FileOpen("test.txt", 1) ; Creates new text.txt file
 FileWrite($file, "Bla bla bla bla" & " " & @MON & "-" & @MDAY & "-" & @HOUR & "-" & @MIN & "-" & @SEC & "-" & @YEAR & @CRLF)  ; (CRLF = Linebreak)   Writes line and records date and time
 FileClose($file) ; Closes file
   Else   ; If time is not between 6:30am and 7:15am, sleep for another 15 minutes
WEnd ; ends loop (loop should never end)

You have no EndIf.

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.

AND (pun intended) your If statement is constructed wrong, besides not having an EndIf. Compare your code to this UDF.

; Function Name: _Time_InRange()
; Description: Determine if the current time is within a given Range
; Syntax: _Time_InRange("Low time", "High time")
; Parameter(s): $sTime - Low end of the range (Start time)
; $eTime - High end of the range (End time)
; Requirement(s):
; Return Value(s): 1 if current time is within the range otherwise 0
; Author(s): George (GEOSoft) Gedye
; Modification(s): Replaced _NowTime(4) With Formatted @Hour & @Min
; Note(s): This only uses Hours and Minutes
; Example(s): MsgBox(0, "Time is good", _Time_InRange("08:00", "23:59"))

Func _Time_InRange($sTime, $eTime)
Local $vRange = 0, $cTime
$cTime = Number(@Hour & @Min)
If $cTime >= Number(StringFormat("%04d",StringRegExpReplace($sTime, "\D", ""))) AND _
$cTime <= Number(StringFormat("%04d",StringRegExpReplace($eTime, "\D", ""))) Then $vRange = 1
Return $vRange
EndFunc ;<==> _Time_InRange()
Take note that the If statement in that function doesn't have (or need) an EndIf because it is all one line (refer to the underscore in the Help file) Edited by somdcomputerguy
