call repeated block of code

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

hi all,

my question relates to taking a block of code and saving it as function? then calling this as needed as you would with a vba call 'macro name here'

eg of the code below

#RequireAdmin
ShellExecute("C:\Users\frank\Documents\SFiles\C\Arizona Diamondbacks.sfcht")
AutoItSetOption('MouseCoordMode', 0)
AutoItSetOption('SendKeyDelay', 150)


WinWait('Chart Database')
WinActivate('Chart Database')
ControlClick('Chart Database', '', 'Button15')
WinWait('File Management')
WinActivate('File Management')
ControlClick('File Management', '', 'Button1')
WinWait('Chart Database')
WinActivate('Chart Database')
ControlClick('Chart Database', '', 'Button5')
WinWait('Edit Chart Data')
WinActivate('Edit Chart Data')
ControlCommand('Edit Chart Data', '', 'ThunderRT6CheckBox2', 'UnCheck')
WinWait('Edit Chart Data')
WinActivate('Edit Chart Data')
ControlClick('Edit Chart Data', '', 'ThunderRT6TextBox1')
Send('{CTRLDOWN}')
Send('{v}')
Send('{CTRLUP}')
ClipPut("")

  i wouid like to take

AutoItSetOption('MouseCoordMode', 0)
AutoItSetOption('SendKeyDelay', 150)

WinWait('Chart Database')
WinActivate('Chart Database')
ControlClick('Chart Database', '', 'Button15')
WinWait('File Management')
WinActivate('File Management')
ControlClick('File Management', '', 'Button1')
WinWait('Chart Database')
WinActivate('Chart Database')
ControlClick('Chart Database', '', 'Button5')
WinWait('Edit Chart Data')
WinActivate('Edit Chart Data')
ControlCommand('Edit Chart Data', '', 'ThunderRT6CheckBox2', 'UnCheck')
WinWait('Edit Chart Data')
WinActivate('Edit Chart Data')
ControlClick('Edit Chart Data', '', 'ThunderRT6TextBox1')
Send('{CTRLDOWN}')
Send('{v}')
Send('{CTRLUP}')
ClipPut("")

and call that 'ABC'

then subsequently my new code would be;

#RequireAdmin
ShellExecute("C:\Users\frank\Documents\SFiles\C\Arizona Diamondbacks.sfcht")

call ABC

thanks

It's a function your are describing...

ABC()

Func ABC()
    WinWait('Chart Database')
    WinActivate('Chart Database')
    ControlClick('Chart Database', '', 'Button15')
    WinWait('File Management')
    WinActivate('File Management')
    ControlClick('File Management', '', 'Button1')
    WinWait('Chart Database')
    WinActivate('Chart Database')
    ControlClick('Chart Database', '', 'Button5')
    WinWait('Edit Chart Data')
    WinActivate('Edit Chart Data')
    ControlCommand('Edit Chart Data', '', 'ThunderRT6CheckBox2', 'UnCheck')
    WinWait('Edit Chart Data')
    WinActivate('Edit Chart Data')
    ControlClick('Edit Chart Data', '', 'ThunderRT6TextBox1')
    Send('{CTRLDOWN}')
    Send('{v}')
    Send('{CTRLUP}')
    ClipPut("")
EndFunc   ;==>ABC

christina_applegate,

When you post code please use Code tags - see here how to do it.  Then you get a scrolling box and syntax colouring as you can see above now I have added the tags.

You can simply save in in an .au3 file anywhere on your computer and paste it into your code when you need it.

However there is an article in wiki on how to store permanently your UDF so it does not have to be in script folder, sorry I don't know the link.

Have a little browse.

You can use an include statement to add another file easily.
 

Save the below to C:\ScriptA.au3

msgbox(1,"ScriptA","This command from ScriptA.au3")

Then save this to C:\ScriptB.au3

#include "C:\ScriptA.au3"
msgbox(1,"ScriptB","This command from ScriptB.au3")

Run ScriptB and you'll get both message boxes displayed.
