InetGetSize freezes GUI when used with FTP downloads

Recommended Posts


I am facing a weird situation here. Not sure how to explain though.

I have multiple GUI applications built in past where I am using Progress bars for both Internet as well as Intranet downloads and they have been working fine. But now I am getting a new application which is not downloading any files from any of the FTP sites.

I found that the complete GUI freezes up when it reaches to the line:


I tested by building a new GUI by getting only the function for Progress window and it works fine. But in the new GUI application it only freezes up when trying to download anything from FTPs. Internet file downloads are working all good though.


Below is the example I had just created taking the Progress window part only and it work here but not in the main GUI.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ProgressConstants.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 593, 233, 774, 427)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("File Download", 200, 40, 197, 28, $SS_CENTER)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 14, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")

$GetFileButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Get File", 264, 184, 75, 25, $BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

        Case $GetFileButton

            $Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(168, 120, 270, 17)
            Local $SourcePath = "FTP file path" ; Test file

            $Dest = "C:\Temp\TestFileName.exe" ; Download Dest Path
            $GetFile = InetGet($SourcePath, $Dest, 1, 1) ;Forces a reload from the remote site and return immediately and download in the background
            $SourcePathSize = InetGetSize($SourcePath) ;Get file size

                Sleep(100) ;Sleep for half a second to avoid flicker in the progress bar
                $GetDownldBytes1 = InetGetInfo($GetFile, 0) ; Get number of bytes read for current file
                $GetDownldPerct1 = Int($GetDownldBytes1 / $SourcePathSize * 100) ;Calculate percentage
                $Totalsize1 = $SourcePathSize - $GetDownldBytes1
                GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, $GetDownldPerct1) ; Update the Current FIle progress bar
            Until InetGetInfo($GetFile, 2) ; Continue loop until download is complete




Any suggestions I can try out here?

Post working code to fix non working (non posted) code issue?

That's like taking a car to a mechanic but asking him to diagnose your car that still sitting in your driveway at home.

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
