Save Screenshot with randome name

Recommended Posts

laolas

i would like to have a timer how long the program was opened, so i figured out a easy way to make it by making screenshots form the desktop where the time is in the right corner... but my problem is that when i make a screen only one is made because the file name allready exist, how i mage it to save the screenshot with a random generated name ? like "1232asd2.jpg"

 

#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
_ScreenCapture_Capture(@DesktopDir & "\GDIPlus_Image1.jpg")

Is this an AutoIt program you're talking about, or just some random program? Either way, look in the help file for TimerInit and TimerDiff, or use something like the @HOUR/MIN/SEC macros. Screenshotting the clock is very rube goldberg.

No one is being mean, but this forum is dedicated to helping people with their own scripts, not just writing them for you. Have you tried it with a different name rather than the @HOUR macro? And are you sure it should be a / and not a \ ?

My suggestion had nothing to do with screen capturing.

If all you're using the screenshot for is to note the time, there's a heck of a lot of ways that are better than that to get the information.

To sort you can use Random () and to take time you can use _NowCalc () and _DateDiff ()

#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#include <Date.au3>

local $initial_date = _NowCalc()
sleep(3000)
$Time_seconds = _DateDiff('s', $initial_date, _NowCalc())
MsgBox(4096, 'Finished', "The computer has been: " & $Time_seconds & " seconds")


Local $name = ''
For $i = 1 To 6
    $name &= Chr(Random(97, 122, 1))
Next
_ScreenCapture_Capture(@DesktopDir & "\" & $name & ".jpg"); name = randomized
_ScreenCapture_Capture(@DesktopDir & "\" & @hour & "_" & @min & "_" & @sec & ".jpg"); name = Hour, minute, and second
