I was wondering if you can help me with the function called; InetRead().
My scripts are using this function a lot for several conditions and everything works fine!
But sometimes when the server is a little bit buggy of simply not available my script is hanging.
It takes about 90sec before this function returns a Timeout, when i adjust the parameter it still is hanging about 90sec.
The following script is a example where the script is hanging for aprox. 90sec;
; Set Timeout to 2sec AutoItSetOption ("TCPTimeout", 2000) ; Read Website InetRead("http://www.geenverbinding.nl/",1) ; Show Msgbox before Ending Script. Msgbox(64,"","Finished")
The following script is a example where the script show the Msgbox pretty fast;
; Set Timeout to 2sec AutoItSetOption ("TCPTimeout", 2000) ; Read Website InetRead("http://www.google.nl/",1) ; Show Msgbox before Ending Script. Msgbox(64,"","Finished")
My question now is, what am i doing wrong and/or is there a other way to prevent Hanging the script?
Hi everyone, hope you are doing fine
Well, I'm currently writing a small script that goes to a certain web page, finds the first link of a specified section and download the file associated to this link.
Depending on the computer that the tool is launched, the script gets the computer model and search in the (provided here) ini file which link to follow.
At first, Dell was kind enough to provide only one link but now, they provide two of them. The first one is now a .txt file ( ) whereas my script has been designed to download only the fist and latest link released for the BIOS Update.
Here's the current code which is working with only the first and latest link of the BIOS category:
So the question is:
In the case of double links like shown in the picture above, how it is possible to tell the script to download only the link containing an the .exe file?
Of course, I could have changed the array result to  instead of  [which is working] but it seems that Dell does that randomly and that I deal with a lot of computer models.
Thanks for the help you can provide,
I am trying to extract a date and time from a website using InetRead. The source for the page I am reading shows the date and time as shown below. I need to somehow extract the correct date and time from this information. Is there a function or calculation that will do this? The source shown here correlates to 15:20 (time) 29.03.17 (date).
<div class="cell game-date" data-time="1490818800000"> <div class="site__time" data-time="1490818800000"> <div class="time"></div> <div class="date"></div> </div> </div>
Hello AutoIT community.
I am attempting to make a script that will login to my bank account and retrieve one of my account balances and display it in a MsgBox, however it am having some difficulty getting the correct value.... The MsgBox keep displaying a value of "0" instead of the actual string in between the source code I'm looking for.... Any help would be greatly appreciated!
$readtext = InetRead("https://www.xxxbanksitexxx.com/das/cgi-bin/session.cgi?screenid=SIGNON_PORTAL_PAUSE&LOB=CONS",1)
$source = BinaryToString($readtext)
$text = _StringBetween($source,'CHECKING XXXXXXXXXX ', ' "> ')
MsgBox(0,"balance",$text) ;This keeps returning a value of "0"
WARNING: I never tried this on a root directory, I should probably write a fix for that case. EX: There is no C:\..\
I don't know how many of these there are on this forum and I know Tidy is real nice for making backups.
I have a few dislikes relying on the Tidy backup:
1 I'm not crazy about the backup folder it creates in project folder.
2. If no Tidy edits are performed script is not backed up on Tidy. I can't rely on that when I request a backup.
3. If I want to backup a select group of files without backing up the entire project folder, it is somewhat tedious to select each file and Tidy.
Now this is just a very simple script that I felt I could use to simplify backing up my project.
I'm not asking you to code it for me, but I welcome feedback. If you think you can make it better or know of something better please share.
I know of Github it's overkill for me, I'm not comfortable, and I won't use it as much as I need to.
So here it is:
You place it in the source folder, open it in Scite.
Change: Global $gBackup_dir_path = "..\Backup\" to wherever you want you backup folder Path to be.
in the main() add some backup("file_name") calls remember to remove file extension.
and it should make a new backup file for each backup("file_name") every time you run the script.
Test it out make sure it's working and you're good to go.

The script isn't authorized to overwrite files, and tries to create the next number of file_name available.
The 'p' in my variable names stands for parameter.
