How to sleep after every send

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello everyone

I have a lot of "Send" actions in my script, and I want the script to sleep for a period of time after every "Send". I don't want to have to add "Sleep (1000)" after every line that contains "Send", though. Is there a way that I can create a separate function that performs the Send action and then the Sleeps action? And if so, can you show me how, please?

For example, instead of:

Send ("^c")
Sleep ("1000")
I would want to be able to just write:

SleepSend ("^c", 1000)
... knowing that the script will send "^c" and then sleep for 1000.

Thanks

Samuel

If it is the same every time you could do this ...

func _sleepSend ()
Send(""^c")
Sleep(1000)
EndFunc

Then you would just type _sleepSend() to use it.

If it could be different every time you could so something like this:

func _sleepSend ($sendvar)
Send($sendvar)
Sleep(1000)
EndFunc

In this case you would type in the stuff to send within the parenthesis as you had in your example

Thanks! I've always wondered how to do this :-)

I now have a related question, though. If this is the function:

Func _sleepSend ($sendvar, $sleepvar)
Send ($sendvar)
Sleep($sleepvar)
EndFunc
....and I want the script to know that if I don't specify the sleepvar, then the sleepvar should be "1000", how would I do that?

I mean, if I used:

_sleepSend ("^c", 2000)
then it should send ^c and sleep for 2 seconds, but if I used:

_sleepSend ("^c")
then it should send ^c and sleep for 1 second (the default sleep).

Thanks again.

That would be an optional parameter.  You should be able to say

Func _sleepSend ($sendvar [,$sleepvar=1000])

Then you can override that default value with a different number.  Otherwise, it will be 1000.

leuce,

Or you could just use the Opt("SendKeyDelay" command to let AutoIt do the hard work for you. ;)

If your script is a bit buggy due to send not working right (fails for various reasons like the correct window is not active) have you looked at controlsend?

Thanks, but I need to be able to adjust the sleep time because the script interacts with a program that sometimes need more time to respond. It is a Java program, so ControlSend can't be used.

Another question for you- if your script is a bit buggy due to send not working right (fails for various reasons like the correct window is not active) have you looked at controlsend?

 

also,

SendKeepActive() can be of use in that cases...
