Help with send function speed

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I need some help here.

I`m trying to create a something just to write a long text for me. Its a topographic info that I constantly need to change and re write.

I made this, but the type speed is really low, even with  Opt("SendKeyDelay",) set to 1.  It starts really fast and getr slow after 4 ou 5 lines.

 

Opt("SendKeyDelay", 70)
Run("cmd.exe")
Sleep(100)
Send("cd c:\rdr")
Send("{ENTER}")
send("cemigrdr.exe")
send("{ENTER}")
send("{ENTER}")
send("C")
send("C")
send("G")
send("0")
send("{ENTER}")
send("500")
send("{ENTER}")
send("d")
send("wild")
send("{ENTER}")
send("20190001")
send("159")
send("{ENTER}")
send("E2{ENTER}9{ENTER}11280{ENTER}090011600{ENTER}37{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E2{ENTER}10{ENTER}{ENTER}{ENTER}090281600{ENTER}84{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E2{ENTER}E3{ENTER}{ENTER}{ENTER}090392000{ENTER}124{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}E2{ENTER}213620{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}12{ENTER}11360800121E092431600{ENTER}24{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}13{ENTER}{ENTER}0409236{ENTER}1600{ENTER}41{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}14{ENTER}{ENTER}0309215{ENTER}2600{ENTER}48{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}15{ENTER}{ENTER}0309101{ENTER}3600{ENTER}55{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}16{ENTER}{ENTER}2609010{ENTER}3600{ENTER}61{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}17{ENTER}{ENTER}2609014{ENTER}3600{ENTER}57{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}18{ENTER}{ENTER}0409106{ENTER}4800{ENTER}104{ENTER}{ENTER}")

 

Can someome help me to speed it up?

I don't know what cemigrdr.exe is or does, but if you send the text to notepad, nothing gets slow after 4 or 5 lines.

Opt("SendKeyDelay", 0)

ConsoleWrite("Start the Notepad process" & @CRLF)

; Run Notepad with the window maximized.
Local $iPID = Run("notepad.exe", "", @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED)
; Wait 10 seconds for the Notepad window to appear.
WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10)

Send("cd c:\rdr")
Send("{ENTER}")
send("xyz.txt (former : name of cemigrdr.exe")
send("{ENTER}")
send("{ENTER}")
send("C")
send("C")
send("G")
send("0")
send("{ENTER}")
send("500")
send("{ENTER}")
send("d")
send("wild")
send("{ENTER}")
send("20190001")
send("159")
send("{ENTER}")
send("E2{ENTER}9{ENTER}11280{ENTER}090011600{ENTER}37{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E2{ENTER}10{ENTER}{ENTER}{ENTER}090281600{ENTER}84{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E2{ENTER}E3{ENTER}{ENTER}{ENTER}090392000{ENTER}124{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}E2{ENTER}213620{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}12{ENTER}11360800121E092431600{ENTER}24{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}13{ENTER}{ENTER}0409236{ENTER}1600{ENTER}41{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}14{ENTER}{ENTER}0309215{ENTER}2600{ENTER}48{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}15{ENTER}{ENTER}0309101{ENTER}3600{ENTER}55{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}16{ENTER}{ENTER}2609010{ENTER}3600{ENTER}61{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}17{ENTER}{ENTER}2609014{ENTER}3600{ENTER}57{ENTER}{ENTER}")
send("E3{ENTER}18{ENTER}{ENTER}0409106{ENTER}4800{ENTER}104{ENTER}{ENTER}")


; Wait for 5 seconds.
Sleep(5000)

; Close the Notepad process using the PID returned by Run.
ProcessClose($iPID)
ConsoleWrite("Notepad process closed" & @CRLF)

Can you explain the functionality of cemigrdr.exe ?

Hi friend, tx for the reply. It`s a program that run on DOS, it takes all that information and draw  a topographic profile. But it has separated colums, thats why I use [enter] between  the  information. SO the program needs me to type a field, press enter, type another one, and keep going.

Let me put some screens here to try make it more easy to understand since english is not my first language:

This is the excel plan were all the information is:

 This one is the program were I need to translate all information from excel. Runing in DOS in a virtual PC with win xp.

All that I need is to take the info from excel, and write that on this DOS program, but its huge somtetimes, like a 300 lines.  To change between columns I need to press Enter.

Hi @ToniMuniz

First of all, I apologize for the late response. I am very busy at the moment, but I don't want to leave you without some kind of feedback.

Questions :
Q1 : Sending commands to the Dos program works basically, right ?
The problem is, that the execution is getting increasingly slower.
Try, just for the sake of it, to play with the value in SendKeyDelay -> 10 -> 20 ...
Does this have any effect on the processing speed ?

Q2 : Maybe a stupid one, but does cemigrdr.exe has some kind of interface to import data ?

Q3 : The Excel part is still missing completely, right ?

Finally : Not sure if I can help you further with this, because the automation of old Dos programs is not my favorite field of activity. Working virtually blind also doesn't make things easier, because I can't test anything myself.
