Autoit modification date

Recommended Posts

NiceBoy1234

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 Virtual People,
      My array works perfectly fine. However, what is the best practice if the line in the array doesn't have the correct amount of columns and if I can add a placeholder?

       
      For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") Next

      hi all,
      reviewing the forum, this thread is applicable: 
       
       
      I wanted to know if there is now a better way to do this?
      In essence, I load a tab delimited txt file into an array (works well). I used tab, as some fields in the original csv contains commas.
      However, I needed autoit to manipulate this array, and output it as a csv.
      IF my array contains items with a comma, without double quotes around the field, then how best do I get a csv out of this?
      My current workaround is to filewritefromarray tab delimited, then open it in excel and save as a csv. I will need to check this to see how the address fields behave that contain a comma.
       
      Any thoughts would be appreciated.

      Hello friends, I have a query, it happens that I have a matrix nxn, the first column of this contains each cell a number with 21 digits, when I pass this matrix to Excel I obviously write that number as 1,10016E + 20, I solved it by adding a * at the end of each cell, but I want it to be written as a text so that I do not have to remove that *, I searched in Google but could not find an effective solution, thanks in advance.

      Hi All,

      I would like to know how you would take a FileLineRead and insert it into an array which then inserts it into Excel?
      One thing to know is the files content is broken up, so I only use half of the content within $FileRead1.
      So its imperative that the $value1, $value2, etc variables be used. 
      Code below:
      $FileRead1 = FileReadLine("C:\temp\sample.txt",1) For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] $value4 = $input[4] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value4, "D1") Next
