Executing functions at specific times

Recommended Posts

IamKJ

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.

Have you looked at TimerInit and TimerDiff functions?

Yes, but those only act from when it was called.  I want to go off of system time.  For example, this script would ask them to input time to execute, so I'd put "03:30:00:000", and I'd like for it to execute at 3:30 A.M.  

 

I can get the system time displayed fine and everything, but can't figure out how to get autoit to read the time as a string and execute when that system time string reaches to time specified.

 

It might be possible/easier for it to read the time as a whole number, maybe if you add all the times (hh + mm + ss + ms) and get a whole number, that might work, but not sure how to get autoit to read the system time as a string or integer.

Sorry misread your post, what about:

#include <Date.au3>
Global $infotime
Global $iTicks
timer()
Func timer ()
    If Not IsDeclared("iMsgBoxAnswer") Then Local $iMsgBoxAnswer
    $iMsgBoxAnswer = MsgBox(36,"Timer","Please format your answer in 00:00:00")
    Select
        Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 6 ;Yes
            $infotime = InputBox ('Time', 'What time to execute?')
            $iTicks = _TimeToTicks(StringLeft($infotime, 2), StringMid($infotime, 4, 2), StringRight($infotime, 2))
            Do
                ToolTip(@Hour & ':' & @Min & ':' & @Sec)
            Until _TimeToTicks(@HOUR, @MIN, @SEC) = $iTicks
            MsgBox(0,'Worked','Worked')
        Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 7 ;No
            Exit
    EndSelect
EndFunc

That worked perfectly.  However, it won't allow me to use the _Msec function in  _TimeToTicks, which returns milliseconds.

It worked with the msgbox, but anything else I try to put after the Until statement just makes the original message box pop up.

Can you give an example, I replaced the MsgBox with RunWait("Notepad.exe") and it worked fine.

Also regards your OP if you used the following it should also work, the issue previously is that you were reading ToolTip which just returned 0.

#include <Array.au3>
#include <Date.au3>
Global $infotime
timer()
Func timer ()
    $sTime = _DateAdd("s", 30, _NowCalc())
    $aTime = StringSplit($sTime, " ")
    $infotime = InputBox ('Time', 'What time to execute?', $aTime[2] & ":000")
    Do
        $sRawTimer = @Hour & ':' & @Min & ':' & @Sec & ':' & _MSec()
        ToolTip($sRawTimer)
    Until $sRawTimer = $infotime
    If $sRawTimer = $infotime Then MsgBox(0,'Worked','Worked')
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

The second code you posted worked beautifully every time.   It doesn't work all the time with the milliseconds, but that's fine, have found a way around that with using the sleep time and converting milliseconds into sleep time.  Thanks a lot!

      Now what i need is divide this long string as autoit variable each max lenght (4000characters per line) example:
      Local $var
      $var &=  TVqQAAMAAAAEAAA..
      $var &=  VbAmejwqqqAACEE..
      and then how to i add encrypt function on every line ? how to i can xor it? example final will be :
      $var &=  XorEnc(TVqQAAMAAAAEAAA..)

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a way to take a number value from a Row2 of a 2D array and according to this check if files that appear in rows 3-11 in the array exists.
      For example, if the number in Row2 is 5 I need to check for the files in Row 3-6 only, if it is 6 than rows 3-7 and so on.
      I thought on using a FOR loop but I have very little experience with those.
      Can you suggest the best way to do what I need?
      BTW, the files in Rows 3-11 will usually have blank value for any row above the number in Row2 (e.g. Row2 = 5 so Rows3-6 will have values but 8-11 be empty), The values I need are in Column 1 of the array, the name of the key from the INI file that the array was created from is in Column 0.
      Full Example:
      Row2 of Array:
      Col0 = Games# - Col1 = 5
      Rows3-6
      Col0 = Exe2 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe3 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe4 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe5 - Col1 = Path To File
      I need that if Row2 is 5 to check these above for rows if the file exists, if it was 6 then the next row as well and so on up until number 10 in Row2 as it can't go above 10.
      So basically for whatever number in Row2 from 2-10 need to check 1-9 rows from 3-11 to see if the files in Col1 exists and if any of them don't exist it should call a function that shows an error message.
      I'm pretty sure I have the first line of the for look correct:
      For $i = 1 To $aAIO[2][1] Just not sure how to continue from there, also not sure if $i should be equal 1 or 2.
      Help will be appreciated.
