[SOLVED] Delay script exit when system restarts?

Recommended Posts



I have a program XX that asks for user confirmation on exit, which hangs the system reboot/shutdown process until I confirm. So I decided create a autoit script that would automatically close that dialog and let the system reboot/shutdown.

The problem I'm facing is that my scripts now exits before the XX.

Is there a way delay script exit until the XX is closed but only when system is rebooting/shutting down?


Thank you.

Global $g_hForm = GUICreate('Test ' & StringReplace(@ScriptName, '.au3', '()'), 200, 200)
Local $idButton = GUICtrlCreateButton('', 73, 62, 54, 54, $BS_ICON)
GUICtrlSetImage(-1, @SystemDir & '\shell32.dll', 45)
GUICtrlSetTip(-1, 'Log off ' & @UserName)
Local $idCheck = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox('Block Windows shutdown', 10, 173, 144, 21)

; Set the highest shutdown priority for the current process to prevent closure the other processes.

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

            If GUICtrlRead($idCheck) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                _WinAPI_ShutdownBlockReasonCreate($g_hForm, 'This application is blocking system shutdown because the saving critical data is in progress.')

Func WM_QUERYENDSESSION($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)
    #forceref $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam

    Switch $hWnd
        Case $g_hForm
            If _WinAPI_ShutdownBlockReasonQuery($g_hForm) Then
                ;Run your code here
                Return 0

      I have done extensive searches on this issue before posting but have not found a solve. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
      ;I have a valid AutoIt support question and kindly provided the details of my system: ;AutoIt Version: V3.3.14.2 [X32] ;Windows Version: WIN_VISTA [X86] ;Language: English (0409) #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Global $form = GUICreate("O_o", 146, 66, -1, -1) Global $inputNorth = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 12, 24, 53, 21) Global $btnSet = GUICtrlCreateButton("Set Controls", 72, 16, 65, 33, $BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) HotKeySet("{UP}","_north") While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $btnSet Global $goNorth= "-" & GUICtrlRead($inputNorth) MsgBox(0,"", "go north: " & $goNorth) Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd ;functions Func _north() $pos=MouseGetPos() MouseMove($pos[0], $pos[1]$goNorth,0) ;-results in syntax error EndFunc As you can see, $goNorth gets its value from $inputNorth
      (the MsgBox shows it works)
      But I cannot get MouseMove() to take $goNorth
      If I use: MouseMove($pos[0], $pos[1]$goNorth,0) --I get a syntax error.
      If I use: MouseMove($pos[0], $pos[1] & $goNorth,0) --I no longer get a syntax error, but that's not right so the function, (likely), moves by zero.
      So is there a way I can get MouseMove() to take a variable for that parameter?
      Thank you in advance should you choose to help!

      I'm working on automating the update process for a piece of software that we use at my company. The installer file always contains the version number as a part of the file name (eg InstallFile_9342.msi) and the numbers always change with every update.
      How do I use AutoIt to run the program? I know I can't use a wildcard in place of the numbers when using the "Run" command. 
      I tried 
      Local $aArray = _FileListToArray("C:\path\to\file", "InstallFile_*.msi", 0, 1) Run("$aArray") and I also tried
      Local $bInstall = FileFindFirstFile("InstallFile_*.msi") Run("$bInstall") and neither worked. 
      Can someone please point me in the right direction? I've done some searching on the forum and haven't found anyone in a similar situation before.

      I have a program that has a control that changes color a few seconds into running. So ideally, I would poll this to tell when an event has occurred. 
      I can't seem to retrieve the correct color value for a control. It always seems to return white indicating that its selecting somewhere else in the window.
      In the PixelGetColor call I'm adding half the width to the x value and subtracting half the height to the y value  in order to get the center of the control. (assuming the coords returned by ControlGetPos are top left - which i can't be sure of) But I've also tried without modifying the x/y and with changing the PixelCoordMode option to 2. Maybe I'm making a silly mistake and can't see it? Any help would be appreciated.
      Code is below:
      Opt("PixelCoordMode", 0)
      FileChangeDir( "C:\Where\My\File\Is" );
      Run( "MyProgram.exe" )
      Local $hClient = WinWaitActive( $CLIENT_TITLE, "", 10 )
      Local $systemIndicatorClassNN= "[CLASS:Qt5QWindowIcon; INSTANCE:99]"
      Local $hSystemIndicator = ControlGetHandle ( $hClient, "", $systemIndicatorClassNN)
      Local $xywh = ControlGetPos ( $hClient, "", $hSystemIndicator )
      For $i = 10 To 1 Step -1
            $color = PixelGetColor ( $xywh[0] + ($xywh[2]/2), $xywh[1] - ($xywh[3]/2), $hClient )
            LogToFile( $color )
            Sleep( 2000 )

      Hi, I created a gui with date field but formatted as time in HH:mm. It always shows "now-time". Even if I try to set it with GUICtrlSetData.
      #include <DateTimeConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Example() Func Example() GUICreate("My GUI get date", 200, 200, 800, 200) Local $idDate = GUICtrlCreateDate("", 20, 20, 100, 20, $DTS_TIMEFORMAT) ; to select a specific default format Local $sStyle = "HH:mm" ; Just display hours and minutes <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< GUICtrlSendMsg($idDate, $DTM_SETFORMATW, 0, $sStyle) ConsoleWrite(GUICtrlRead($idDate) & @CRLF) GUICtrlSetData($idDate, "00:00") ConsoleWrite(GUICtrlRead($idDate) & @CRLF) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Loop until the user exits. While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE WEnd MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Time", GUICtrlRead($idDate)) EndFunc ;==>Example How can I set the time field with another time and how can this field be set blank?

      Edit: The solution! Maybe?
      I need to download an image from a website using AutoIt but the download, when viewed in a text editor, does not appear to be the same as if I had downloaded it from a web browser.
      Could anyone help me figure out why this is happening?
      I've already tried _INetGetSource, InetGet, _IENavigate, wget, this, and a few .bat and .vbs scripts.
      Example Code:
      #include <Inet.au3> Local $source = _INetGetSource("http://c0.rbxcdn.com/0db36a45eae4838667ae9a46ba0c082a") Local $newfile = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\test.txt", 2) FileWrite($newfile, $source) FileClose($newfile) Image URL: http://c0.rbxcdn.com/0db36a45eae4838667ae9a46ba0c082a
      Screenshot attached.
