Loop Question

Recommended Posts

Aloha,

I am trying to write a script to start a defrag program, close popup, defrag c: hdd and d: hdd, and then close the program. So far the program starts, closes the popup, defrags the c: hdd but now I want it to continue with the d: hdd and then close the program. The first four lines of the script works ok but what do I add on line 5 & 9 to let the program run the defrag. until it is completed?. After the defrag is completed with C:, a popup comes up that I will close with line 6 and continue on to the D: drive but am stuck on what to add in line 5 & 6 so defrag will not just zip by. Do I use a loop? How do I stop the loop after the defrag is completed? TIA

; This script is to start Diskeeper and defrag the C & D Hdd and to close the program. 3-12-06 using Autoitv3.

; -------------------------------------------------------------------------

1) runwait (@comspec & " /c start dklite.msc")

2) Sleep (1000)

3) WinClose ("Diskeeper Lite")

4) ControlClick ("Diskeeper Lite","Defragment Now",8101,"",1)

5)

6) ControlClick ("Diskeeper Completed", "&OK",1,"",1) ;Closes Diskeeper Completed popup of C.

7) ControlClick ("Diskeeper Lite","",12785,"",1) ;Changes to D drive.

8) ControlClick ("Diskeeper Lite","Defragment Now",8101,"",1) ;Start Defrag on C.

9)

10) ControlClick ("Defragmentation Completed","OK",1,"",1) ;Closes Diskeeper Completed popup of D.

11) ControlClick ("Diskeeper Lite","",12785,"",1) ;Changes back to C to prepare new defrag in future.

12) WinClose ("Diskeeper Lite")

Aloha,

Thanks for the replies and the help Neogia, thatsgreat2345 and herewasplato. I finally got it to work after hours of trial and error and herewasplato thanks for the posting, but I don't understand your script (too deep for me). I will have to do some search on your scripts to figure out what it does. TIA

What parts don't you understand? I'm sure one of us can explain it to where you could maybe get a grasp of it, since you'll probably need it for future reference anyway.

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.

Aloha,

Thanks for the breakdown. Well, I didn't quite understand $check, if $check, and msgbox. I looked at the help but couldn't find check but I found that $ is a variable. I also couldn't understand why msgbox would be part of the program but now I am thinking that those additional scripts are there to show if there is a problem. Is that correct?? Ok, I got it and thanks to you all again. TIA

@nfwu,

Thanks - I've not had time to stay on the forum much as of late.

@doogdoog,

Yes, in this case - msgbox = debug/problem - once the script is working, then you should not see them popup... however, ControlIDs have been known to change within a program from one run to the next or if there is a patch/upgrade... so you might want to keep them in there.

Check the help file under ControlClick and you should see this:

Return Value

Success: Returns 1.

Failure: Returns 0.

When you execute a line of code containing a ControlClick function it will return (or send) a 1 or a 0 to a variable or another function. $check is just the name of the variable that I picked. I could have named the variable $x or $y like in algebra - but who wants to go there?

One of the things that I noticed about your code was that you were not putting any WinWaits in it. While I was messing around with writing out the whole script - nfwu posted the same idea... that is why I just posted my whole version and left it at that. I probably should not have thrown the msgboxes into the equation, but some of your control IDs looked like they might have been in error.

Another way to write this line:

If $check = 0 Then MsgBox(0, "AutoIt", "Control Not found.")

is

If Not $check Then MsgBox(0, "AutoIt", "Control Not found.")

I throw that in because I know that lines of code like (If $check = 0 Then...) really offends some coders' senses... but I think that it is clearer for those just starting out. I know that it was for me.

What happens when you run the code that I posted? - if you are that brave :-)
