Hi All, 

 

I am a begginer in auto it. I am trying to build simple gui that will show me if for example notepad.exe process is currently running on the system. I have built something like this, but when I execute it shows me message boxes, but I want the results to show in gui. If you can help me start with this.

 

Thanks

 

 
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

ActiveProcess()

Func ActiveProcess()
GUICreate("Act")
         ProcessExists("wuauclt.exe")

       If ProcessExists("wuauclt.exe") Then
 MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Windows Upates are running")
     Else
 MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Windows Updates are not running")
 EndIf
   ;Notepad

         ProcessExists("notepad.exe")

         If ProcessExists("notepad.exe") Then
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Notepad is running")
        Else
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Notepad is not running")
EndIf

Hello and welcome to the forum. Here is a simple example:

$hMain = GUICreate('Notepad process')
$Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel('',10,10,380,380,0x201) ; BitOR(SS_CENTERIMAGE, SS_CENTER)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hMain)

Do
    $PID = ProcessExists('notepad.exe')
    If $PID Then
        GUICtrlSetData($Label, 'Process notepad.exe exists. (PID: ' & $PID & ')')
    Else
        GUICtrlSetData($Label, 'Process notepad.exe doesn''t exists')
    EndIf
    Sleep(10)
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3 ; GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

It looks like your ultimate goal is windows updates, where you may want a start and stop message. Something like this perhaps:

#include <Date.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Local $sText = ""
Local $hGUI = GuiCreate("Act", 300, 300)
Local $hEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 10, 280, 280, $ES_READONLY)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
            Case Else
                If ProcessExists("notepad.exe") Then
                    GUICtrlSetData($hEdit, "Notepad launched at " & _Now())
                        While ProcessExists("notepad.exe")
                            Sleep(100)
                        WEnd

                        If Not (ProcessExists("notepad.exe")) Then
                            $sText = GUICtrlRead($hEdit)
                            GUICtrlSetData($hEdit, $sText & @CRLF & "Notepad closed at " & _Now())
                        EndIf
                EndIf
        EndSwitch
    WEnd

As you can see, with AutoIt there are many ways to skin the proverbial cat

Thank you all! It helps a lot, but I have another question. How do I build an ini file which will save this output to a file?

Can you explain this more? Why do you want to save whether a process is running to an ini file? How about an example of what the ini file would look like?

Yes, so when I run the script, I want these processeses to save to a file to keep a record of them, so whether running or not I would like to log the processes to a file when running the script. I dont know if that makes sense.

post your script for help with it. use the code tags <> to have the code formatted and displayed properly in threads.

Cheers guys for helping me out. I have managed to do that, but have another problem. I am saving the output to .txt file and everytime I run the script it overwrites the file, but I want it to write it into the same file, but underneath the last output, so I can compare them.
 

Global $sFilePath = "" & $pcname & ".txt"

Updates()


Func Updates()

    IniWrite($sFilePath, "Date:",@ComputerName, _Now())
    IniWrite($sFilePath, "Update:",         $arr[1][0], $arr[1][1] )
    IniWrite($sFilePath, "xxx:",            $arr[2][0], $arr[2][1])
    IniWrite($sFilePath, "xxx:",            $arr[3][0], $arr[3][1])
    IniWrite($sFilePath, "xxx:",            $arr[4][0], $arr[4][1])
    IniWrite($sFilePath, "xxx:",            $arr[5][0], $arr[5][1])
    IniWrite($sFilePath, "xxx:",            $arr[6][0], $arr[6][1])
    IniWrite($sFilePath, "xxx:",            $arr[7][0], $arr[7][1])
    IniWrite($sFilePath, "xxx:",            $arr[8][0], $arr[8][1])
    IniWrite($sFilePath, "xxx:",            $arr[9][0], $arr[9][1])
   
EndFunc

_FileWriteFromArray($sFilePath, $arr)

$From = $sFilePath
$To = "C:\xxx\xxx"

Runwait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "xcopy " & '"' & $From & '"' & ' "' & $To& '"' & " /Y ","",@SW_HIDE

Doesn't FileOpen open a file in append mode? do you need INI or a formatted log? 

if you just looked up log4a.au3 thread like i suggested you would have everything you need to dump it to log super easy. all nice and formatted with date/time stamps. but instead you asked for code the post after that one. sigh.

Do you want to use an INI file? Then use the INI functions.

Do you want to write it directly from the array, then use _FileWriteFromArray correctly. From the help file:

Quote

If a string path is provided, the file will be overwritten and closed.
To use other write modes, like append or Unicode formats, open the file with FileOpen() first and pass the file handle instead.
If a file handle is passed, the file will still be open after writing.

I am unclear why you are using an INI.  I use INI to manage application configs.  If you want a log, I think I would try _FileWritelog

log4a is better though. more configurable too. you can have it log to the Editor console running from editor, and auto generate a hard log once compiled.

That may be.  My only real point is that INI probably should not be used in this case

really? I said that already in post 2 or 3 but the OP doesn't read it. I also repeated myself a few posts above yours. I guess I'm done with the "Gimme deh codez" posts like this, and the folks who make them ignored.

      Hello again!
      I have tried searching for quite some time now but couldn´t find a single working way to change the class of your GUI that doesn´t include changing it manually after its compilation.
      First or "AutoIt v3 GUI" is a pretty boring name tbh and i would like to spice it up a bit, also, and more importantly, I would like to identify my windows by something other than its title as it will change depending on some factors and im using two different programs independently as multi threading isn't supported.
      Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

      Hello, 
      i have a Problem with  _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes, everything is working as excepted if u are on Windows 7.

      But if u are on Windows 10 the transparent background of a control is not clickable anymore. 

      Could someone help?

      Please see example below, put cmd.jpg into the same folder as Example.au3

      Please see trigger.jpg to see which sections are not clickable in Windows 10 (the red dots, the green dots are clickable) on Windows 7 the red ones and green ones are clickable.
       
      The same problem occurs if i use

      Hello everyones reading this post,
      I'm struggling at resizing properly my radio buttons to fit long text inside without affecting others radio buttons and also adjust position of them relative to the string.
      I tried with _StringSize UDF but I guess im too tired to figure out how to use it correctly..
      I also tried: _Control_SetWidth2Text I found on this forum, it work aslong im not maximizing GUI (radio text is gone when I maximize and maximize is a must)
       
      here is the code example, I hope someone can figure out (sorry if guictrlsetpos is not included in the example, I know thats probably the way to go but I wanted to make sure there is nothing better before use it)
      Thank you

      Hello,

      im searching like 6 hours and i didnt found the right solution.

      Im trying to build a treeview from a directory and its subfolders etc.

      This function give me right treeview, but i cant color each item seperated.

       
      #include <GuiTreeView.au3> $hGui = GUICreate("Demo1", 600, 400) $hTreeView = _GUICtrlTreeView_Create($hGui, 10, 10, 580, 380) GUISetState() _GUICtrlTreeView_BeginUpdate($hTreeView) ListFiles_ToTreeView(@ScriptDir, 0) _GUICtrlTreeView_EndUpdate($hTreeView) Do Until GUIGetMsg() = -3 Func ListFiles_ToTreeView($sSourceFolder, $hItem) Local $sFile ; Force a trailing \ If StringRight($sSourceFolder, 1) <> "\" Then $sSourceFolder &= "\" ; Start the search Local $hSearch = FileFindFirstFile($sSourceFolder & "*.*") ; If no files found then return If $hSearch = -1 Then Return ; This is where we break the recursive loop <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< ; Now run through the contents of the folder While 1 ; Get next match $sFile = FileFindNextFile($hSearch) ; If no more files then close search handle and return If @error Then ExitLoop ; This is where we break the recursive loop <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< ; Check if a folder If @extended Then ; If so then call the function recursively ListFiles_ToTreeView($sSourceFolder & $sFile, _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild($hTreeView, $hItem, $sFile)) Else ; If a file than write path and name _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild($hTreeView, $hItem, $sFile) EndIf WEnd ; Close search handle FileClose($hSearch) EndFunc ;==>ListFiles_ToTreeView
      So i am searching for the exact same function just with
      GUICtrlCreateTreeViewItem
      instead of 
      _GUICtrlTreeView_AddChild
       
      Ps: i have a folder structure where i like to color each item green if a file only exist once and red if it exist more than once.

      Could someone help?
