WHY a while loop speedup when the mouse is moving

Recommended Posts

Grosminet

Searching inside the forum, I don't succeed to get any explanation about a strange (for me !) phenomena:

Using AutoIt, I have coded a "cortex of neurons Simulator" for which I handle several neurons activity (Action Potential and Postsynaptic Potential) which take a long time, about 20 ms per neuron to be processed. This is why I need a global loop running about 1s for a global cortex of 50 neurons.

But when I move the mouse (in any direction, like rotating above the GUI) the speed of the loop increase significantly : around x8 times more ... !

This happens only if the GUI has the focus. I did a check with the "Windows Task Manager" where I can see the CPU usage changing every time the mouse is moving (growing from 3% to 15%).

I believe to remember some lecture about the influence of the user events regarding the "Application" capability to anticipate user actions by changing it's rate of pooling events, but I'm not sure it was in an AutoIt forum, or maybe it was in an other "developer forum" (like "Code Project", "Stackoverflow" , or ...?

Could somebody help me to understand this behaviour ?

If possible, is there a programmatic method to manage the speed of a simple "For, Next" loop ? I try to change the Application priority (setting to level 4 with "ProcessSetPriority"), but this seems not very efficient ....

Thanks, Alain.


FYI: I'm using :

You're probably using GUIGetMsg, that function has a built in sleep when nothing is going on with the GUI, when you're moving the mouse over it or actioning a control the delay is bypassed.

Thanks for this precision about GUIGetMsg.

The "Remarks" in the AutoIt help indicates something different, No ? : ".... This function automatically idles the CPU when required so that it can be safely used in tight loops without hogging all the CPU. ...."

--> Should it be ?  : ".... This function automatically idles the GUI polling cycle when required so that it can be safely used in tight loops without hogging all the CPU. ...."

Subsequent question: to avoid such "built in sleep" behaviour, could I use the function "GUICtrlSetOnEvent", that means using the option "GUIOnEventMode" set to 1 ?

I can confirm after recoding my work that " GUICtrlSetOnEvent" avoids the "built in sleep" behavior of the events mode "0" handling.

Thanks again BrewManNH !

      Hello AutoIt community
      I run into speed problem in my script wich i cant solve myself, problem is with decoding texture loop - for better explanation, you need extract from file pallete (16x 16 RGB color) and picture data (224 * 128 byte), then use correct color for your picture data.... nothing extra hard and also texture is quite small 224*256
      it is for my car model viewer/later maybe editor GranTurismo 2 from Playstation 1, so its old dataformat and i cant understand why AutoIt take so long to decode texture when good old Playstation almost 2,5 decades old can do that nearly immediately (when you list through cars in shop or garage)
      My first atempt was create all trought dllstructure, because its easier approach, but it was soooo slow (40-50s for create textures) then i upgrade my routine via arrays, first 3D arrays later only 1D, next i put decoding colors outside loop but it is still not enough, my last version took cca 15s wich is still unacceptable for car model viewer when you click on one carmodel from listview (1100 cars for whole game) and you must wait 15-16s for model to load....  oh and i forgot mention some cars have more then 1 color (much more... 8-9-10 etc) soloading take 8-9-10 times more time
      in attachment i post texture file from GranTurismo 2 for one car (contain only 1 color) and also my dll struct version and array version code
      dll struct version - ± 40 sec (33 without saving)

      Hi guys,
       
      Wondering, is there a better way, likely to use 'for...next' to add a letter to each range, by moving right -> along a range of columns in excel.
      I currently use this, but its clunky.
      If $run = 1 Then $range = "B6:B41" If $run = 2 Then $range = "C6:C41" If $run = 3 Then $range = "D6:D41" If $run = 4 Then $range = "E6:E41" If $run = 5 Then $range = "F6:F41" If $run = 6 Then $range = "G6:G41" If $run = 7 Then $range = "H6:H41" If $run = 8 Then $range = "I6:I41" If $run = 9 Then $range = "J6:J41" If $run = 10 Then $range = "K6:K41" If $run = 11 Then $range = "L6:L41" If $run = 12 Then $range = "M6:M41" If $run = 13 Then $range = "N6:N41" If $run = 14 Then $range = "O6:O41" If $run = 15 Then $range = "P6:P41" If $run = 16 Then $range = "Q6:Q41" If $run = 17 Then $range = "R6:R41" If $run = 18 Then $range = "S6:S41" If $run = 19 Then $range = "T6:T41" If $run = 20 Then $range = "U6:U41" If $run = 21 Then $range = "V6:V41" If $run = 22 Then $range = "W6:W41" If $run = 23 Then $range = "X6:X41" If $run = 24 Then $range = "Y6:Y41" If $run = 25 Then $range = "Z6:Z41" If $run = 26 Then $range = "AA6:AA41" If $run = 27 Then $range = "AB6:AB41" If $run = 28 Then $range = "AC6:AC41" If $run = 29 Then $range = "AD6:AD41" If $run = 30 Then $range = "AE6:AE41" If $run = 31 Then $range = "AF6:AF41" If $run = 32 Then $range = "AG6:AG41" If $run = 33 Then $range = "AH6:AH41" If $run = 34 Then $range = "AI6:AI41" If $run = 35 Then $range = "AJ6:AJ41" If $run = 36 Then $range = "AK6:AK41" If $run = 37 Then $range = "AL6:AL41" If $run = 38 Then $range = "AM6:AM41" If $run = 39 Then $range = "AN6:AN41" If $run = 40 Then $range = "AO6:AO41" If $run = 41 Then $range = "AP6:AP41" If $run = 42 Then $range = "AQ6:AQ41" If $run = 43 Then $range = "AR6:AR41" If $run = 44 Then $range = "AS6:AS41" If $run = 45 Then $range = "AT6:AT41" If $run = 46 Then $range = "AU6:AU41" If $run = 47 Then $range = "AV6:AV41" If $run = 48 Then $range = "AW6:AW41" If $run = 49 Then $range = "AX6:AX41" If $run = 50 Then $range = "AY6:AY41"  
      Normally, if it was going down the rows, i'd use this:
       
      For $i = 0 To UBound($iRowCount) - 1 $row = $i + 1 $range = "B"&$row&":B"&$row+1 Next  
      so something like this, but i don't know how to code sequential columns:
      For $i = 0 To UBound($iColCount) - 1 $col = $i + 1 $range = $col&"1:"&$col&"40" Next  
      If I don't make sense, let me know.
      Any help would be great. thanks

      Hi,
      I am struggling converting my 1D array to a 2D array and then showing that in my List View. Below is my current code, where I would like to take the array from the input box, and have that displayed as a list within the list view this is a list of computer names, and then update the 2nd column of each line once I have ran a ping and a registry change on each computer name, with either 'Completed' and 'Failed'
      I have checked out the AutoIt Arrays page here: https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Arrays , but unfortunately I cannot get my head around it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      I hope this makes sense.
      Thanks
