Script to Perform loop Task

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am new to scripting so please bear with me. I am hoping you can help me in creating a script that will perform the following.

1. Copy files from source folder to destination folder.

2. Check if the copying of files are finish. After finishing copying those files, randomly open those files from the destination folder.

3. After opening those files, next is to close those files.

4. After closing those files, next is to open MS Outlook.

5. Once MS Outlook is open, next is open IE and go to youtube, then open a second instance of IE and go to yahoo, open third instance of IE and go to msn.com.

6. next is check if the files are close and if yes then delete those files from the destination folders.

7. after deleting all files from destination folders, close MS Outlook and close all IE.

8. The script will go back to step 1 (loop).

9. I have a button to end the script.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

@How2, In addition, when doing your loop, your CPU will increased up to 40-50% utilization usage or above depending on your loop which might cause of slowing the computer down. So better to add sleep() for your loop and when to exit your loop.

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")
; Start loop 
While 1
    Sleep()
    ; your codes here.
WEnd
Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Or

; Start loop 
Do
 Sleep(1000)
 ;some code here.
 Untel $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit
