autoit script for autochanging background depending on week, w7x64

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

sup , been some time guys, anyhow

so ive searched through the net for a solution to my request , but , apparently batch and powershell scripts cant achieve this so i hope autoit scripting can, i require a silent autoitscript for automatically setting a background at windows startup in windows desktop depending on week of the year , that being from week 1-52

all backgrounds are sorted into theyre respective week folder and the week subfolders are in a main folder called weeklybackgrounds which sits in the main root, accordingly like so >

c:

weeklybackgrounds >

Week 1

Week 2

Week 3

.....and so on

i need the background images to apply depending on what week we have , say were in week 2 ..3.. or 50 , the script has to be able to check the date in windows and autoset the background on startup, mind you the backgrounds i use are actual .mpg/.wmv clips , yes i use dreamscene, but this little bit of extra info on what exactly kind of images or clips i use should be irrelevant , since the script should be able to set .mpg, .wmv , .jpg , .jpeg , .png , .bmp , files as background without a hitch anyhow

and the background files in the week folders are randomly named, thanks

sexuio,

 

i require a silent autoitscript

We do not write scripts to order - we help you get your scripts working correctly. Think of the old saying: "Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day; give a man a net and you feed him forever". We try to be net makers and repairers, not fishmongers. ;)

Please post again when you have at least some code - even if it does not work - and we will be glad to help. :)

I suggest looking up these functions:

_DateDayOfWeek

_FileListToArray

RegRead/RegWrite

First see if you can get the script to change the background on demand to a specific file, then expand it to remember the last used file and search the following one. Finally, put the script in your startup folder.

Everyone had 0 skills at first. Two choices: 1) learn, improve skills, improve curriculum, improve salary, decrease chances of Alzheimer, 2) google "rent a coder".

How do you "really really need" something that changes your background weekly? Just do it manually, it only takes 2 seconds...

well id rather have it autoswitch instead of having to do it manually, thats part of why scripts exist to automate tasks you should know this sadbunny ,

@choice 1

i learn but , i know my own limitations of complex subjects and im not great at it at all , i have no idea how learning coding would improve my salary , since my job has nothing to do with code , about alzheimer , well thats a lie cause if that where true id have alzheimer 10 years ago xD

@2 , yeah rent a coder , sure ... if id make that much

ive turned to the community for a helping hand not to be told to have to learn coding and scripting from scratch , which if i could learn so easily without investing years of time into i wouldntve put up this request thread , thats like telling a person that wants to use a pc to have to code his own OS in order to use it instead of getting linux or whatever , then users like me wouldnt be using pcs at all

sexuio,

You have been a member here since November 2011 at which time you were asking for us to code a gamebot. As it seems you regard this forum as nothing more than a place for an occasional post to ask for others to code scripts for you (which as I explained above we do not) I wonder whether it is worth you remaining a member. ;)

Certainly there is no point in letting this thread run any further. so <click> © Jos. :)
