Check if another AutoIT script is running and pause it

6 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I run multiple AutoIT scripts concurrently, is there a way of distinguishing between them?

When I look under Details in task manager I just see a bunch of "AutoIt3.exe" processes. Under the processes tab I again just see a bunch of "AutoIt v3 Script" or "AutoIt v3 Script (32 bit)" applications. When I hover my mouse over the tray icon I can see the tooltip "AutoIt - Current Time.au3" but am not sure how to reference this.

For example if I run a script called "Current Time.au3", how can I determine from another au3 script if this "Current Time.au3" script is running and grab it's handle (using WinGetHandle() or similar)? Following from that l'd even like to pause/resume the script, if that's possible..

Cheers!

JFYI - If you convert it to exe and run, you can see the executable file name in task manager.

Thanks for the great idea Anoop, will definitely keep it in mind.

I'd like to find some code for the au3 files in this particular scenario, and I'd like to figure out how to pause/resume the script as well.

One way would be to launch them all from the same master program, and get a PID for each off the Run command.

And there are various other ways, involving writing to a checking file or Registry entry etc.

      Hello.
      I had made a bot that clicks and doing stuff. It is working fine, but when i move it to another PC ImageSearch stop working. I captured same image of a button again and i observed that they are a little bit different. How to deal with this? I wonder if i will make black and white detection might work, or not ... i don't know. The point is i am not willing to re-do photos on each and every PC i move the scripts.
       
      ClickOnImageWithToleranceFast("images/fb_about.bmp",16) Func ClickOnImageWithToleranceFast($image_path,$tolerance) If SearchForImageOnScreenWithTolerance($image_path,$tolerance) Then If $x <> 0 And $y <> 0 Then MouseMove($x+5, $y+5,0) Sleep(500) MouseClick("left") Sleep(500) EndIf EndIf EndFunc

      Hi,
      I was wondering is this all inputs can be done in 1 box with 3 fields and not to use another gui.
      And how can i validate data for example if i don't enter username he prompt me a message box all time until field is empty.
      I try like this but it give me a msgbox and continue on another field.
      $username = InputBox("Add new user", "Username", "", "", 200, 130, Default, Default, 0) if $username <> " " then msgbox(0, "", "Please enter username") endif $email = InputBox("Add new user", "Email", "", "", 200, 130, Default, Default, 0) $password = InputBox("Add new user", "Password", "", "*", 200, 130, Default, Default, 0)

      'm trying to make an autologin script for facebook which prompts u to enter an email and a password and then opens the browser and logs you with the info u entered but im having a problem with the text entered in the input box. What i basically want it to do is take what's written on the inputbox and replace it on the email form in the facebook site and the password. Don't mind the other buttons in the gui , i just wanted to focus on the facebook button first. Any help will be appreciated
