Notification for a script to finish??

5 posts in this topic

Basically, i have a script that sums a bunch of number using different functions, and it sometimes can take up to 15-20 seconds to finish.

At the end, a msgbox pops up to tell the user the total, but is there some kind of thing that I can add during that 15-20 seconds while its running to tell the user that it's "working" and not like just doing nothing/frozen? Thanks!

Yes, look at  ProgressSet in the help file. The example script contained therein will give you some ideas.

ToolTip is a possibility. If you have a Gui, you can insert a label, which data is updated. Also possible with GUI using a GUICtrlCreateProgess, using Marquee-Style if no calculantion of done % is possible.

All kinds of things. I personally like to go with audio feedback (like a short beep every second with increasing frequency), but there's always things like ProgressOn/ProgressSet/ProgressOff (and many variants are available).

To avoid having to interrupt your calculation process with a test to see whether a progress meter should be increased however you could simply use an AdlibRegister() to execute a function every X msec's that beeps or consolewrites or traytips or updates a gui or whatever you want, and unregister that after the calculation is done.

SplashTextOn is another function to do what you want to do.
