Handling Indefinite Script Pause

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am in a fix with this problem and I cant seem to find a viable solution. As you would know that the AutoIT scripts can go in pause mode for many reasons. It could be simply WinWait() that could take the script into that state. I do understand that a better design could help a lot but I would like to handle such situation with existing my code. To simplify my query - I am looking for a way to calculate how long the given script/compiled script has been in "pause"  state. Is there a way to do that?  For example, if my script has been in pause state for 3 hours I would like to kill or restart  the pc . I do understand that Auto IT is not multi-threaded but is there a way to achieve what I am trying to?

Any help or suggestion is much appreciated.

Thanks

_Timer_GetIdleTime

Returns the number of ticks since last user activity (i.e. KYBD/Mouse)

But a script thats frozen or loops endless can't act when a max is reached.

@9252Survive You have answered your own question, I'm afraid. If you want to account for every possible scenario (WinWait, WinWaitActive, etc.) the responsibility will be on you the coder to do it correctly. Use the proper timeout parameters on each function for just this reason. Anything short of actually coding it correctly is, in the end, going to be a cobbled mess that causes you more issues.

      Hi, 
      I have a string like this : 
      Global $Msga = "urrent directory is /send.  (Submission of file with log number 29381077284 is confirmed)";
      I want to extract the number 29381077284  from the string. I did StringSplit to split based on "(" and then use space to reach there, But it's not a good choice. 
      Can anyone help me with regular expression to find the number from String using AutoIT. TIA

      I want wanting to run multiple tests on my company website. Sadly the process I want to automate requires opening a File Explorer to add an attachment. Is there a way in to automate a Chrome opened File Explorer?
      (I am using webdriver to automate the other 99% of the process just fine. But when I have it click on attach file and chrome opens a file explorer I do not know how to handle it.) 
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
