I am trying to dynamically get folders and their modification date, I was orientated by this:

; Initial Launch, grab current GetTime
$file1_1 = FileGetTime("X:\aescripts\testimg", 0, 1)

Timecheck()

Func Timecheck()

      $file1_2 = FileGetTime("X:\test\testimg", 0, 1)

      If $file1_1 == $file1_2 Then
         ConsoleWrite("Folder 1 not modified" & @CRLF);
      ElseIf $file1_1 <> $file1_2 Then
         ConsoleWrite("Folder 1 modified" & @CRLF)
      EndIf

; Initial Launch, grab current GetTime
$file1_1 = FileGetTime("X:\test\testimg", 0, 1)

EndFunc

; Initial Launch, grab current GetTime
$file1_1 = FileGetTime("X:\test\testimg", 0, 1)

While 1
    Sleep(5000)
    Timecheck()
WEnd


That works, but it is not dynamic.

So I did code following but it does not work properly.

 

   Local $sFootage_01 = "Z:\Footage\ClothImgs\"    

      Local $aFileListFootageFolder_01 = _FileListToArray($sFootage_01, "*")

      ; Initial Launch, grab current GetTime
      For $i = 0 To UBound($aFileListFootageFolder_01) - 1
         $newFootageFolder_01 = $sFootage_01 & $aFileListFootageFolder_01[$i]
         $getTimeNewFootageFolderInit_01 = FileGetTime($newFootageFolder_01, 0, 1)
         ConsoleWrite("First Filename " & $newFootageFolder_01 & @CRLF)
      Next

   Func Timecheck()

      Local $aFileListFootageFolderRe_01 = _FileListToArray($sFootage_01, "*")

      If @error = 1 Then
         ConsoleWrite("not valid path" & @CRLF)
         Exit
      EndIf
      If @error = 4 Then
         ConsoleWrite("could not find any data" & @CRLF)
         Exit
      EndIf

      For $i = 0 To UBound($aFileListFootageFolderRe_01) - 1
         $newFootageFolder_01 = $sFootage_01 & $aFileListFootageFolderRe_01[$i]
         ConsoleWrite("ArrH " & $aFileListFootageFolderRe_01[$i] & @CRLF)
         $getTimeNewFootageFolder_01 = FileGetTime($newFootageFolder_01, 0, 1)
         ConsoleWrite("ZZZ First Filename " & $newFootageFolder_01 & @CRLF)

         Local $aGetTimeNewFootageFolder_01 = _FileListToArray($newFootageFolder_01, "*")
         For $u = 0 To UBound($aGetTimeNewFootageFolder_01) -1
             If $getTimeNewFootageFolderInit_01 == $getTimeNewFootageFolder_01 Then
                ConsoleWrite($newFootageFolder_01 & " has not been changed" & @CRLF)
             ElseIf($getTimeNewFootageFolderInit_01 <> $getTimeNewFootageFolder_01 And $aGetTimeNewFootageFolder_01[0] == 11) Then
                ConsoleWrite("File 1 has been changed and has " & $aGetTimeNewFootageFolder_01[0] & " images" & @CRLF)
                ConsoleWrite("Time 1.1: " & $getTimeNewFootageFolderInit_01 & @CRLF & "1.2: " & $getTimeNewFootageFolder_01 & @CRLF)
                WinKill($hWnd, "")
                Sleep(8000)
                RunCm()
                ListFolders()
                ExitLoop
             ElseIf($getTimeNewFootageFolderInit_01 <> $getTimeNewFootageFolder_01 And $aGetTimeNewFootageFolder_01[0] <> 11) Then
                ConsoleWrite("Path " & $newFootageFolder_01 & " modification date has changed, number of images: " & $aGetTimeNewFootageFolder_01[0] & " files/folders" & @CRLF)
             Else
                ConsoleWrite("Else Statement" & @CRLF)
             EndIf
         Next
      Next


      $aFileListFootageFolderInit_01 = _FileListToArray($sFootage_01, "*")

      ; Initial Launch, grab current GetTime
      For $i = 0 To UBound($aFileListFootageFolder_01) - 1
         $newFootageFolder_01 = $sFootage_01 & $aFileListFootageFolder_01[$i]
         $getTimeNewFootageFolderInit_01 = FileGetTime($newFootageFolder_01, 0, 1)
      Next
   EndFunc

      $aFileListFootageFolderInit_01 = _FileListToArray($sFootage_01, "*")

      ; Initial Launch, grab current GetTime
      For $i = 0 To UBound($aFileListFootageFolder_01) - 1
         $newFootageFolder_01 = $sFootage_01 & $aFileListFootageFolder_01[$i]
         $getTimeNewFootageFolderInit_01 = FileGetTime($newFootageFolder_01, 0, 1)
      Next

   ; check every 5s if files in footage folder has been changed
   While 1
      Sleep(5000)
      ConsoleWrite("While Loop " & @CRLF)
      Timecheck()
   WEnd

It always goes to the first ElseIf Statement and tells me that the files have been changed.
So I printed out the modification dates and this varaible shows correctly the current modification date of the subfolder $getTimeNewFootageFolder_01 and this
$getTimeNewFootageFolder_01 does show another modification date of another folder which I do not understand.

Again the code (not dynmaic one) above works, but trying to make it dynmacly did not work.

Not exactly sure what you are wanting to do?
Are you just wanting the dates of all files in a folder?
To do a comparison with the same files in another folder?

And to be honest, I prefer things simple, so big long names and busy looking code does my head in.
I keep things simple, that I can understand at a glance, even if that means using extra steps and lines.
Similar names also don't help, as it takes me away, checking what they are all the time.
None of that is intuitive to holding an overall picture/map/structure in one's head.

But each to their own.

I Basically want to check if the modification date of a folder has changed.
I tried to make the code above dynamically, if you would copy the first part of the code and change the path you may would understand it better.

Not sure what you mean by dynamic?

Why are you checking every 5 seconds?

Are you wanting to continually monitor the same folder indefinitely for changes?

I check every 5 seconds, because if the user creates another folder, that folder gets checked to.
I check for folders in the following path :

Z:\Footage\ClothImgs\

If there are folder I check for their file size ( in this case they got images ) and the modification date.
So if I delete a file or something similiar the modification date of that folder changes and I will do something ...

So Yeah one could say that I want to check indefinitely the folder/s for changes.

By my reckoning, you keep assigning to the same variable ($getTimeNewFootageFolderInit_01) for every sub-folder. And perhaps you also need to use a backslash between source folder and sub-folder? (i.e. $sFootage_01 & "\" & $aFileListFootageFolder_01[$i])

; Initial Launch, grab current GetTime
      For $i = 0 To UBound($aFileListFootageFolder_01) - 1
         $newFootageFolder_01 = $sFootage_01 & $aFileListFootageFolder_01[$i]
         $getTimeNewFootageFolderInit_01 = FileGetTime($newFootageFolder_01, 0, 1)
         ConsoleWrite("First Filename " & $newFootageFolder_01 & @CRLF)
      Next

Those two things strike me as issues that need dealing with.

But I don't know, I'm getting awfully muddled by your naming convention, which makes it hard to troubleshoot. It seems to me you might be getting things mixed up, but I'm not really sure.

      Hi
      I am trying to set Accelerator keys from an array.
      I select the KEY and CONTROL from a SQLite table, the Array looks like that generated for the Helpfile, but I can't get the CONTROLS to resolve...
      I though about Assign & Eval, but not sure if that's a step in the right direction. IsDeclared shows that the $var exists in Local Scope -1.  
       
      Local $Main = GUICreate("Custom MsgBox", 225, 80) GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please select a button.", 10, 10) Local $idButton_Yes = GUICtrlCreateButton("Yes", 10, 50, 65, 25) Local $idButton_No = GUICtrlCreateButton("No", 80, 50, 65, 25) Local $idButton_Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 150, 50, 65, 25) Local $query, $aResult, $iRows, $iColumns $query = "" ;reset $query = "Select hotkey_key, hotkey_ctrl from mytable where mykeys = 'hotkey' ; " ; ; Query $iRval = _SQLite_GetTable2d($sqliteDb, $query, $aResult, $iRows, $iColumns) If $iRval = $SQLITE_OK Then Local $sizeofHotkeys = UBound($aResult) - 1 ConsoleWrite("$sizeofHotkeys " & $sizeofHotkeys & @CRLF) If $sizeofHotkeys > 0 Then Local $main__aAccelKeys[$sizeofHotkeys][2] For $i = 0 To $sizeofHotkeys - 1 $j = $i + 1 ; replace friendly text with code -- ! alt + Shift ^ Ctrl # Windows $aResult[$j][0] = StringReplace($aResult[$j][0], "Alt", "!") $aResult[$j][0] = StringReplace($aResult[$j][0], "Shift", "+") $aResult[$j][0] = StringReplace($aResult[$j][0], "Ctrl", "^") $main__aAccelKeys[$i][0] = $aResult[$j][0] ;--- $main__aAccelKeys[$i][1] = $aResult[$j][1] ;--- Next ;~ Row|Col 0|Col 1 ;~ Row 0|F2|$idButton_Yes ;~ Row 1|F3|$idButton_No _DebugArrayDisplay($main__aAccelKeys) Local $rv = GUISetAccelerators($main__aAccelKeys, $Main) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Display the GUI.  
      Please note that this is a modified Helpfile example.
      The Helpfile specifies (a) WinHandle and (b) last Gui created.
      --> the example uses a control not a WinHandle and (b) what happens with ChildGuis? Also, the HelpFile specifies lower case, yet the examples show "{F1}" upper case?
      Also, is there a way to check the result of the GuiSetAccelerator function? 
      Note, if I add these to lines after the FOR loop, then the F1 works, and the DebugArrayDisplays shows control 4... not it's name... So I am in the right place, but my $vars names do not convert to their control numbers in the GUI
      Next $main__aAccelKeys[$sizeofHotkeys - 1][0] = "{F1}" ; -- -- use the extra row for the F1 $main__aAccelKeys[$sizeofHotkeys - 1][1] = $ChmHLP ;--- Skysnake

      But after it created shortcut at desktop, I cannot execute the shortcut as it has no any response.
      Then I go try trigger the file at the source path @MyDocumentDir & '\Whatsapp Extension\WhatsappWeb.exe' and it work as expected.
      Then I go to check my log, and it shows:- (P/S: I already did trigger the function twice)
      2019-02-28 23:27:32 : Debug: Desktop's shortcut is not found. But, desktop's shortcut is still created. 2019-02-28 23:27:33 : Debug: Desktop's shortcut is created. 2019-02-28 23:28:40 : Debug: Desktop's shortcut is not found. But, desktop's shortcut is still created. 2019-02-28 23:28:41 : Debug: Desktop's shortcut is created. So based on my log shows, it failed to locate the shortcut, but it did exists there.
       
      P/S: This project is done developed weeks ago, every testing is passed. Is just somehow the executable cannot be execute.
       
       
      Any advise?
