[newbee] How To Create A Gui Showing The Sleep Time

Recommended Posts


Hello there,

As said in the title, I am a complete newbie in AutoIt and this is my first post.

I would like to show in a GUI the remaining time before my Sleep function included in a script dies.

Can SO tell me how I can do that.

Thanks in advance for your attention and your time.

Well since the 'Sleep()' function actually pauses the script for whatever amount of time you've put in there, you wouldn't be able to update the GUI dynamically.

However, you could make a custom sleep option using TimerInit()/TimerDiff()/and a minimal Sleep (ie.. Sleep(10) or Sleep(100) depending on the original sleep) and probably achieve this.

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.
