For loop slowing down GUI App using WMI

Recommended Posts

Here is the code I am referring to:

-------START CODE-----------

Func Update_Current_CPU()

$colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery ("SELECT * FROM Win32_Processor", "WQL",_

$wbemFlagReturnImmediately + $wbemFlagForwardOnly)

For $objItem In $colItems


GUICtrlSetData($Group1,"Current CPU Load: " & $objItem.LoadPercentage)



---------END CODE------------

I have anrrowed the problem down to the For/Next loop. I can comment out the GUICtrlSetData line, and it still taked over 2 seconds to process the For loop. I used a TimeDiff to test just the $colItems command and it took 4/1000 of a second. The For loop took over 2 seconds to complete. During this time, the GUI is unresponsive.

I am running beta.

Has anyone else seen this?

In my experience, AutoIt loops are EXTREMELY slow...

In a small app that I recently built i had to do a series of loops and in what should have taken 1 second at most, it took about 2 minutes... i searched and searched for ways around this and finally gave up, trashing the project.

I love Autoit, but I tend to think it is just a weakness of the language...

good luck.
