(SOLVED)Calling Function That Calls Original Function

Recommended Posts

How would I get this code to work? If not possible/If there is a better way... How would I do it? I can't seem to get it to work properly...

 

Func Go()
;Do stuff
Re-Go()
EndFunc

Func Re-Go()
Go()
EndFunc

Not sure why you don't just use a loop but here you go

Go()

Func Go()
    ;DoStuff
    ReGo()
EndFunc   ;==>Go

Func ReGo()
    Go()
EndFunc   ;==>Re-Go

 

Ok so there is a better way? if so how would I do this "loop" I don't want it to be a while 1 infinite loop because the func go() checks to see if a variable has changed or not before it runs itself all of the way... "however I need it to for sure run the first part even if that variable has not changed..."

Post some more code, a better example of what you're trying to accomplish, because I don't understand.

Putting a loop in the Go function that calls Go would be more effective.

What you have there is called recursion. I'm sure it has its place, but I've never needed it.

If you use recursion wrong it will crash your script eventually, or AutoIt will end it.

Here is a retry at the code Will that work?

 

Go()

Func Go()
Do
;Do Stuff

If $Stop_Submit = 0 Then
;Do More Stuff
Else

Endif

$rand = Random(800, 1150)
$PIIM = ($rand * 60 * GUICtrlRead($Post_Interval_In_Minutes)) ; PIIM = Park Interval In Minutes Use RAND for variation so Server Time is Limited
$PIIMR = $PIIM / 60000 ; PIIMR = Park Interval In Minutes Recalculated (converted to minutes)
$continue = MsgBox(4, "Continue?", "Click NO To Stop Submission Proccess or Click YES To Continue Submitting . This Box Will Timeout And Continue Submitting In " & $PIIMR & " Minutes", $PIIMR)
If $continue = 7 Then
$Stop_Submit = 1
Else

EndIf

Until $Stop_Submit = 1
Endfunc

Thanks for the terminology :D I think I found a simpler way.... :D That code up there is what I think might work... can either of you confirm for me?

Nasty. It would work but idk why you wouldn't just return. I can't make your example work since I don't have your variables and the GUI, but maybe this will give you an idea.

Go()

Func Go()
    Local $iLoops = 0
    Local $iTimer = TimerInit()
    While (True)
        ConsoleWrite("Currently looped count: " & $iLoops & @LF)

        If (TimerDiff($iTimer) > 3000) Then
            If (MsgBox(4, "Continue?", "Would you like to continue looping?") = 7) Then
                Return ConsoleWrite("Finally exited that loop!" & @LF)
            Else
                ConsoleWrite("User opted to continue looping >.<" & @LF)
                $iTimer = TimerInit()
            EndIf
        EndIf

        Sleep(200)
        $iLoops += 1
    WEnd
EndFunc

I kind of understand that... however I am using a Somewhat Random time that is based off of a user selection for the timeout interval "how long the message box will essentially "pause" the script while allowing the user to still stop it if need be..." That way It will only submit the information to the server when they need it to instead of over polling my system and their system... Your code is kind of confusing to me if you could explain to me how it works that would be very much appreciated! Thanks! (I also want them to be able to see when the next submission will occur so I will be including a timestamp for next submission)

All my code does is infinitely loop (While (True)) until the user clicks "No" on the message box. I didn't want the MessageBox to pop up every milisecond so I put it on a timer for every 3 seconds. (TimerDiff($iTimer) > 3000, so when the difference between the current time and when the timer was started is greater than 3000.)

Once you hit "No" on the MessageBox then I return. This might be the part where you do your Stop and Submit stuff. If you hit "Yes" (to continue) then I reset the timer so you get another MessageBox in 3 minutes.

Okay that makes a little bit more sense... Any way you could adapt it for me so I can see how I would implement it?

$PIIM = Park Interval In Minutes (How long to essentially stop the script and wait)

$Post_Interval_In_Minutes = How Long In Minutes The User Wanted To Have The Script Wait

$PIIM is calculated by getting a random number between 800 (aka 800 milliseconds) and 1150 (aka 1150 milliseconds) and multiplying by 60 and $Post_Interval_In_Minutes

$PIIMR is calculated by dividing PIIM by 60000 (60000 milliseconds = 1 minute)

ERROR! I accidentally messed up my code! LOL Let me repost sorry guys... put actions in wrong area... XD *A DERPA DERP*

 

Go()

Func Go()
Do
;Do Stuff

If $Stop_Submit = 0 Then
    ;Do More Stuff

    $rand = Random(800, 1150)
    $PIIM = ($rand * 60 * GUICtrlRead($Post_Interval_In_Minutes)) ; PIIM = Park Interval In Minutes Use RAND for variation so Server Time is Limited
    $PIIMR = $PIIM / 60000 ; PIIMR = Park Interval In Minutes Recalculated (converted to minutes)
    $continue = MsgBox(4, "Continue?", "Click NO To Stop Submission Proccess or Click YES To Continue Submitting . This Box Will Timeout And Continue Submitting In " & $PIIMR & " Minutes", $PIIMR)
    
        If $continue = 7 Then
        $Stop_Submit = 1
    Else

    EndIf

Else

Endif

Until $Stop_Submit = 1
Endfunc

Sorry bout that guys... I misplaced where the code should have gone :sweating:

Something like this maybe

Go()

Func Go()
    Local $Post_Interval_In_Minutes = 1
    Local $Stop_Submit = False

    While (Not $Stop_Submit)
        ; Random number between 800 and 1150 * 60 * the minutes read from the GUI Control, then converted to minutes
        Local $rand = Random(800, 1150)
        Local $PIIM = ($rand * 60 * $Post_Interval_In_Minutes) ; PIIM = Park Interval In Minutes Use RAND for variation so Server Time is Limited
        Local $PIIMR = $PIIM / 60000 ; PIIMR = Park Interval In Minutes Recalculated (converted to minutes)

        If (MsgBox(4, "Continue?", "Click NO To Stop Submission Proccess or Click YES To Continue Submitting . This Box Will Timeout And Continue Submitting In " & $PIIMR & " Minutes", $PIIMR) = 7) Then
            $Stop_Submit = True
        Else
            ConsoleWrite("Continue Submitting" & @LF)
        EndIf
    WEnd

    ConsoleWrite("Stop Submitting" & @LF)
EndFunc   ;==>Go

You've got the wrong Timeout for MsgBox though.

Saw that and am fixing it Thanks ! I will look at your code and see if I can figure it out and all that Thanks so much! :lmao:

      I want to use the winsock overlapped/completion routine method of i/o, but how do I get the pointer to my user function.  I know it is possible because when using the old method of windows messages, the user function name was used instead of a pointer.

      Hello all! 
       
      Getting this error :
      (22) : ==> Variable used without being declared.: if $vNumber = 0 Then if ^ ERROR  
      But I'm sure I have defined the variable, as in the top of my script has 
      Global $vNumber = 0  
      How would I go about fixing this?

      This topic give you access to an AutoIt functions library I maintain which is called PAL, Peter's AutoIt Library. The latest version 1.19 contains 194 functions divided into these topics:
      window and screen mouse and GUI GUI controls logics and mathematics string, xml string and file string dialogues and progress bars data lists: lists, stacks, shift registers and key maps (a.ka. dictionaries) miscellaneous: logging/debugging, process and system info A lot of these functions were created in the development of Peace, Peter's Equalizer APO Configuration Extension, which is a user interface for the system-wide audio driver called Equalizer APO.

      Hi, 
      This is my very first post in this forum and am also new with Autoit programming so be easy on me.
      Below is the code that I am trying to get the index of the item selected. No problem getting the text.
      Case $listEdition   ; handle of the list             local $index=0             $item=GUICTRLRead($listEdition)    ; This will return the text in the list             ; ==============   The loop below always fails  ==================             ; Meaning _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always return FALSE. WHY ???????              For $i = 0 To $editionArray[0] - 1   ; The content of the list in an array where editionArray[0] contains total count of items                 If _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) Then                     $index = $i                     exitloop                 EndIf              Next              ;===================================================             ConsoleWrite( "Select Edition:     " & $item & "  index: " & $index & @CR) ....... Please look at the comments in the code & the pix attached.
      _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always returns FALSE.
      Another problem is on the list. It also populate  the total count of items from the Array. How can I skip this item from populating to the list ?.
      Please advise and thanks
