Restart from a preset point

Recommended Posts

PINTO1927

Hi guys,

I would like to create a button which restarts the script from a set point from me..

Unfortunately with:

Run(FileGetShortName(@AutoItExe) & " " & FileGetShortName(@ScriptFullPath))

I repeated everything the script , however I need to do it again from a point that I imposed..:sweating:

Thank's..

@PINTO1927 it is a bit difficult to give more than generic advice as you didn't post your script, but why not break your script into functions, and then use the button to call the appropriate one?

Yes, in the help file for GUICtrlCreateButton. You can easily modify the example script to call your function. OR, you could post your script as I mentioned above, so we're not having to guess at what you're trying to do ;)

#include <Array.au3>
Global $sFileToCheck = "C:\temp\test.txt"
Global $bFileChanged = False
Global $sFileDateTime = _ArrayToString(FileGetTime($sFileToCheck))
AdlibRegister("_CheckFile", 250)

; GUI creation etc goes here

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Form)
While 1
    If $bFileChanged Then
        MsgBox(0, "Info", "File has changed")
        $sFileDateTime = _ArrayToString(FileGetTime($sFileToCheck))
        $bFileChanged = False
    EndIf
    ; It must start from here
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case...
        Case...
        Case...
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _CheckFile()
    If $sFileDateTime <> _ArrayToString(FileGetTime($sFileToCheck)) Then $bFileChanged = True
EndFunc   ;==>_CheckFile

I have shown you the point of departure must start

That's great @PINTO1927, now how about showing what you have tried on your own, given the example I pointed you to in the help file? This is not a forum where you put in a request and someone barfs up the code for you. We're happy to help, but you need to at least try on your own.

Here the solution for your script:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Global $sFileToCheck = "test.txt"
Global $sFileDateTime = _ArrayToString(FileGetTime($sFileToCheck))


    ; Create a GUI with various controls.
    Global $hGUI = GUICreate("Example", 300, 200)

    ; Create a button control.
    Global $idFast = GUICtrlCreateButton("Fast Restart", 210, 10, 190, 25)

    ; Display the GUI.
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)


Global $bFileChanged = False

While 1
    If $bFileChanged Then
        MsgBox(0, "Info", "File has changed")
        $sFileDateTime = _ArrayToString(FileGetTime($sFileToCheck))
        $bFileChanged = False
        MsgBox(0,'Restart needed','Fast restart will be done!',1)
    EndIf
    ; It continues here or did you see the MsgBox without changing file?????
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $idFast
            AdlibRegister("_CheckFile", 1000)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _CheckFile()
    If $sFileDateTime <> _ArrayToString(FileGetTime($sFileToCheck)) Then $bFileChanged = True
    AdlibUnRegister('_CheckFile')
EndFunc   ;==>_CheckFile

Making even as much sence as your script.

      I was playing around with simple GUI creation.  I tend to like parameter driven coding (in prior life (years ago) as Clipper/FoxPro/dBase coder).  Just wanted to see what I could do with a GUI.
      #Region options, includes Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) ; Change to OnEvent mode #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #EndRegion options, includes Global Const $nCols = 2, $nRows = 6, $nSpacer = 10, $nBtnWidth = 150, $nBtnHeight = 30 Global $xName = 0, $xID = 0 Global $nGUIWidth = ($nCols * $nBtnWidth) + (($nCols + 1) * $nSpacer) Global $nGUIHeight = ($nRows * $nBtnHeight) + (($nRows + 1) * $nSpacer) Global $hMainGUI = GUICreate("Calculated GUI", $nGUIWidth, $nGUIHeight, -1, -1) For $xRows = 1 to $nRows ;in this arrangement, tabbing is left to right, then next row For $xCols = 1 to $nCols ;reverse the order of this line with the prior line for top to bottom tabbing, then next col $xName += 1 $xID += 1 Global $Dummy = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button" & $xName, _ ($nBtnWidth * ($xCols - 1)) + (($xCols - 1) * $nSpacer) + $nSpacer, _ ($nBtnHeight* ($xRows - 1)) + (($xRows - 1) * $nSpacer) + $nSpacer, _ $nBtnWidth, _ $nBtnHeight) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($xID+2, "Handler") Next Next GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CloseApp") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Sleep(10) WEnd Func CloseApp() Exit EndFunc Func Handler() MsgBox(0,0,"Button " & @GUI_CtrlId - 2) EndFunc

      For fun, I'm building an app that opens a webpage and refreshes it every 30 seconds.
      But once the script performs _IEAction($oIE, "refresh"), the GUI closes.
      Any help is appreciated.

      Hi all,
      I have a button created with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. I know that this function returns a handle of button instead of an ID. So i have obtain control ID by calling _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID function. After that i have tried the GUICtrlSetBkColor function. But it didnt worked. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. 
      Note : - The window which carries this button is not created with native gui create function. Instead, it is created with CreateWindowEx api function.

      Hi all,
      I am playing with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. How can i change this button's (or the entire form's) font ?. The in-built GUICtrlSetFont function is not working even when i convert the control handle to control ID with _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID ( ) function.  Do i need to use CreateFont api finction and send WM_SETFONT message ? Or is there any other easy and safe ways to do this ?. Thanks in advance.
      Note : This window is created by CreateWindowEx function, not by GUICreate function.
