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.

      Global $cChkPatrol, $YES= "YES", $NO = "NO" if GUICtrlRead($combo1) = "YES" Then $cChkPatrol = $YES Else $cChkPatrol = $NO EndIf func StartForm() GUICtrlSetData($txtInfo,"ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THAT WILL BE SENT WITH THE MESSAGE:" & @CRLF & asdfgSystemInfo()) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) AdlibRegister("_CheckPatrol") While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Select case $nMsg = $txtEmailAddress GUICtrlSetData($txtInfo,"ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THAT WILL BE SENT WITH THE MESSAGE:" & @CRLF & asdfgSystemInfo()) case $nMsg = $txtPhone GUICtrlSetData($txtInfo,"ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THAT WILL BE SENT WITH THE MESSAGE:" & @CRLF & asdfgSystemInfo()) case $nMsg = $txtFullName GUICtrlSetData($txtInfo,"ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THAT WILL BE SENT WITH THE MESSAGE:" & @CRLF & asdfgSystemInfo()) case $nMsg = $cChkPatrol GUICtrlSetData($txtInfo,"ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THAT WILL BE SENT WITH THE MESSAGE:" & @CRLF & asdfgSystemInfo()) case $nMsg = $cmdScreenShot $gScreenShotFile = SaveScreenShot() case $nMsg = $cmdSubmit if ValidateForm() then if asdfgSubmit() Then UpdateStatus("Your request has been sent successfully") MsgBox(0,"Help Requested","Your request has been sent successfully") ExitLoop Else MsgBox(0,"Help Failed","Something is wrong you request was not sent, please try again") Endif endIf case $nMsg = $cmdAttach $gAttachFile = AttachFile() Case $nMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop EndSelect WEnd AdlibUnRegister("_CheckPatrol") EndFunc func asdfgSystemInfo() dim $asdfgInfo $asdfgInfo = "" & @CRLF if $isAdminVersion=1 then $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & @CRLF & " Ticket Tags:" & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "~#userphone='" & GUICtrlRead($txtPhone) & "'" & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "~#submitterphone='" & GUICtrlRead($txtPhone) & "'" & @CRLF dim $MachineID $MachineID = KaseyaIni($gKIniFile,"SERVER COMMUNICATIONS","User_Name","NotFound") $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "~#machineid='" & $MachineID & "'" & @CRLF dim $OrgGroups $OrgGroups= StringSplit($MachineID,".") dim $OrgGroupIndex $OrgGroupIndex = UBound($OrgGroups) - 1 $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "~#organization='" & $OrgGroups[$OrgGroupIndex] & "'" & @CRLF dim $EmailUser $EmailUser = GUICtrlRead($txtEmailAddress) $EmailUser = StringMid($EmailUser,1,StringInStr($EmailUser,"@") - 1) & @CRLF & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "~#username='" & $EmailUser & "'" & @CRLF ;dim ;Call("isChecked") ;$categ = GUICtrlRead($chkPatrol) ;$asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "-#category='" & $categ & "'" & @CRLF EndIf $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "Email:" & GUICtrlRead($txtEmailAddress) & @CRLF & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "Full Name:" & GUICtrlRead($txtFullName) & @CRLF & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "Phone:" & GUICtrlRead($txtPhone) & @CRLF & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "DateTime:" & _Now() & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "MachineName:" & @ComputerName & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "UserName:" & @UserName & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "OS:" & @OSType & " " & @OSVersion & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "LogonDomain:" & @OSType & " " & @LogonDomain & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "LogonDNSDomain:" & @OSType & " " & @LogonDNSDomain & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "OS:" & @OSType & " " & @OSVersion & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "IP Address:" & @IPAddress1 & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "Public IP Address:" & GetPublicIP() &@CRLF ;$asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "Public IP Address:" & _GetIP () &@CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "OS:" & NetAdapterInfo() $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "KaseyaInstalled:" & KaseyaInstalled() & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "KaseyaRunning:" & KaseyaRunning() & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "KaseyaAgentGUID:" & KaseyaIni($gKIniFile,"SERVER COMMUNICATIONS","Agent_Guid","NotFound") & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "asdfgPaid:" & isasdfgIDPaid() & @CRLF if $isAdminVersion=0 then $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & @CRLF & " Ticket Tags:" & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "~userphone='" & GUICtrlRead($txtPhone) & "'" & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "~submitterphone='" & GUICtrlRead($txtPhone) & "'" & @CRLF dim $MachineID $MachineID = KaseyaIni($gKIniFile,"SERVER COMMUNICATIONS","User_Name","NotFound") $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "~machineid='" & $MachineID & "'" & @CRLF dim $OrgGroups $OrgGroups= StringSplit($MachineID,".") dim $OrgGroupIndex $OrgGroupIndex = UBound($OrgGroups) - 1 $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "~organization='" & $OrgGroups[$OrgGroupIndex] & "'" & @CRLF dim $EmailUser $EmailUser = GUICtrlRead($txtEmailAddress) $EmailUser = StringMid($EmailUser,1,StringInStr($EmailUser,"@") - 1) $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "~username='" & $EmailUser & "'" & @CRLF dim $categ $categ = $chkPatrol $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "~category='" & $categ & "'" & @CRLF dim $track $track = $cChkPatrol $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "~test='" & $cChkPatrol & "'" & @CRLF $asdfgInfo = $asdfgInfo & "~afterhour='" & $AfterHour & "'" & @CRLF endif Return $asdfgInfo endFunc

      I am trying to allow the GUI to gather info as to when to execute a function.  I am having trouble doing this.  So far this is what I have.
       
      ;Timer Func timer () If Not IsDeclared("iMsgBoxAnswer") Then Local $iMsgBoxAnswer $iMsgBoxAnswer = MsgBox(36,"Timer","Please format your answer in 00:00:00:000") Select Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 6 ;Yes Global $infotime = InputBox ('Time', 'What time to execute?') Do $rawtimer = ToolTip(@Hour & ':' & @Min & ':' & @Sec & ':' & _MSec()) until $rawtimer = $infotime if $rawtimer = $infotime Then msgbox (0,'Worked','Worked') Else EndIf Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 7 ;No Exit EndSelect EndFunc Func _MSec() Local $stSystemTime = DllStructCreate('ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort') DllCall('kernel32.dll', 'none', 'GetSystemTime', 'ptr', DllStructGetPtr($stSystemTime)) $sMilliSeconds = StringFormat('%03d', DllStructGetData($stSystemTime, 8)) $stSystemTime = 0 Return $sMilliSeconds EndFunc I have also tried _GUIToolTip_GetText in order to read the tooltip until the time specified, but it still doesn't work.  Any help would be great.

      So I have a lot of different functions in the little program I'm making.  Most of them use the Do statement, such as finding images, clicking buttons, etc.
       
      The question I have is how would I be able to both
      1) Create a hotkey to pause whatever I am doing at the moment.  If I have to put something into every function in the program, I don't mind.
      2) Create a hotkey to exit whatever I am doing and stop all loops or commands and bring back the main GUI?
