How to check whether a file copied completely?

Recommended Posts

ur

There is a build machine in the network where it will automatically download the code from source repository and compile using visual studio and compresses the complete code in a zip file.

I have added a line at the end of the build script(written in python on that machine) to copy that zip file to my ESX Virtual machine.

Where I kept a AutoIT exe to wait for the zip file, once it is copied then I will extract the contents and find only the dll files in the extracted folder and do the Install creation using Installshield silently and copy the created setup files to anther machine.

I wrote the script till the setup files creation.

 

But now the problem is, when the zip file is copying through network, the autoit script is detecting it even the copy is still in progress and trying to extract the zip file and failing.

Even when I am checking whether the file in use is not working.

 

Any suggestion on how to check whether the copy is completed.?

FileGetSize to compare the size from thee network and the file on the machine. When they match the file is copied completely and can be extracted.

We can't access the server machine shared folders as they are restricted, only our machines can e accessed through server machine, so I am copying the file from there itself to my machine.

Is there anyway to check in our machine itself instead of accessing the server machine?

How is your machine going to know everything is copied when it doesn't know big the file is supposed to be?

You could try adding another some more code on the machine sending the file to send to your machine that it's done when it's done copying. Open a TCP connection and send a finished value when it's done copying?

You could try

_WinAPI_FileInUse

It might return true if the file is being recognized as still downloading.

One method that I have used, is to check the file size or modified time in a loop and when the value has not changed for a certain period of time, it should then be safe to assume that the download has completed.

Thanks Bowmore,I will try this approach.

If possible, can you please share that part of your code.

How about this?

You python script copies first the zip file, and then a 'token.txt' file... Your AutoIt script waits not for the zip, but instead for the txt file.

Logically, the txt can only be created/copied AFTER the zip file...

When the AutoIt script finds the txt, it now knows the zip must exist, deletes the txt (as a cleanup for the next cycle) and proceeds to process the zip...

This way everything will only start once the zip has been copied in full, without having the check Windows process etc.

This is the sort of thing I have used .

#include <FileConstants.au3>


Global $sFilepath = "P:\Users\Roy Kirby\Pictures\Africa 2002\01\2002-05_slide_02.tif"

; $stablefor  and $iTmeout values are in seconds
; use values appropriate for the time the file is expected to take to download or copy
If CheckFileIsStable($sFilepath, 30, 300) Then
    MsgBox(0, "CheckFile", $sFilepath & " - has been stable for at least 30 seconds so it has probably finished copying")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "CheckFile", $sFilepath & " - has not been stable for at least 30 seconds in the last 5 minutes so it has probably stil copying")
EndIf

Func CheckFileIsStable($sFilepath, $stablefor = 60, $iTmeout = 1800)
    Local $sPrevFileTime = "A"
    Local $sFileTime = ""
    Local $iPrevFileaize = -1
    Local $iFilesize = 0
    Local $bFileIsStable = False
    Local $iTimeoutTimer = TimerInit()

    Do
        $iFilesize = FileGetSize($sFilepath)
        If @error = 0 Then
            $sFileTime = FileGetTime($sFilepath, $FT_MODIFIED, $FT_STRING)
            If @error = 0 Then
                If ($sPrevFileTime = $sFileTime) And ($iPrevFileaize = $iFilesize) Then
                    ; File has not changed since last check
                    $bFileIsStable = True
                Else
                    $sPrevFileTime = $sFileTime
                    $iPrevFileaize = $iFilesize
                    Sleep($stablefor * 1000)
                EndIf
            EndIf
        EndIf
    Until $bFileIsStable Or TimerDiff($iTimeoutTimer) > ($iTmeout * 1000)

    Return $bFileIsStable

EndFunc   ;==>CheckFileIsStable

      Hi!
      I want to get the signal in this website:
      https://binary-signal.com/pt/chart/eurusd
      I have tried using _IEBodyReadText  and some _StringBetween. What happens is that the text are being update every tick and _IEBodyReadText doesn't.
      To perform the update I used  _IEAction($oIE, "refresh") but it's not good because the website block me after some time due too many requests..
      Is there any other way to get this text every tick?
      PS: The text I want to get is WAIT, CALL or PUT.
       
      Here is the code:
      global $oIE = _IECreate ('https://binary-signal.com/pt/chart/eurusd', 0, 1 , 1 , 0) Local $sText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE) $result = _StringBetween ( $sText , 'PUTEUR/USD on Binary-signal.com', 'sinal está PRONTA') ;MsgBox ( 0, "asf", $result[0]) $espera=StringInStr($result[0], "WAIT") $compra=StringInStr($result[0], "CALL") $venda=StringInStr($result[0], "PUT") ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $espera) $n=0 $c=0 Captar() Func Captar() ;_IENavigate($oIE, "https://binary-signal.com/pt/chart/eurusd") ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $n) Local $sText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE) $result = _StringBetween ( $sText , 'PUTEUR/USD on Binary-signal.com', 'sinal está PRONTA') If (Not $compra=0) And $n=0 Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "COMPRE") $n=1 $c=$c+1 ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") Sleep(60000) Captar() ElseIf (Not $venda=0) And $n=0 Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "VENDA") $c=$c+1 $n=1 ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $n) Sleep(60000) Captar() ElseIf (Not $venda=0) And $n=1 Then ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Esperando próxima rodada") $n=1 ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $n) ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") Sleep(60000) Captar() ElseIf (Not $venda=0) And $n=1 Then ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Esperando próxima rodada") $n=1 ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $n) ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") Sleep(60000) Captar() Else ;MsgBox("", "", "ESPERE") $n=0 Sleep(1000) ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") Local $sText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE) $result = _StringBetween ( $sText , 'PUTEUR/USD on Binary-signal.com', 'sinal está PRONTA') Captar() EndIf EndFunc

      Hello,

      How can I automatically download a list of zip files, like the ones in the quote, using a AutoIt script?
      Is it possible with AutoIt script?

      I want to copy just the selected text in an input control and put it to the clipboard, but GuiCtrlRead() always reads all of the text in the control.
      In this test code, when I highlight a  portion of the left control's text and press ^C, I want to copy just that text to the clipboard; but when I highlight a  portion of the right control's text and press ^C, I want to copy all of its text to the clipboard.

      This baby can do almost any language! I found Gleany on this site and set it up on a fresh win10 install. all i would need to do to make it build an exe of the search files app we discovered is the .NET Target Framework download to build 100 % but the exe works and generates! You also need to add the path the the version of csc.exe that you want to run. MSBuild is part of .NET and can read your .csproj file.
      YOU can develop .NET OR C/C++ on this baby!
      Super lightweight (fit for crappy laptops), and you can use any dev compilers you wish, Ming, MS, etc, whatever.
      To use the build, you need to open the csproj file, else, to check your syntax it can compile individual files as well. The warning are because I do not have the .NET 4.6 Targeting Pack installed... LOL, and I could get rid of the Core warning, yes, I did not want to build a .NET Core.dll I wanted a live x64 exe! Told you MSBUILD could handle .CSPROJ, .VBPROJ, and all others Microsoft. Don't let Visual Code or Visual Studio slow you down, although, this works with Visual Code as well but there is only debugging in CORE.DLL projects
