_checktimeblock() Udf

7 posts in this topic

This is something I just thought of and since I did not have a computer in front of me I whipped out my programming notepad, and took like 6 pages (drafts) front and back to get the formatting correct, and correct order of the If statements, and the proper logic.

I seem to do this often, I will write entire pages of code without ever having a computer to test them on, and they run great :think:

I guess I am just touched in that way.

*Waits for someone one to smirk and say "Ya touched in the head"* *Agree*

Also there is a function _FormatTimeBlock() which, well, formats a timeblock.

A timeblock is defined as "hh:mm-hh:mm" and is in 24hr format (military time)

Example: $timeblock = "00:30-13:30" <==== is 12:30am - 1:30pm

As always PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE post any comments, complaints, rants, flames, props, etc. that anyone may have...

Ok nuff said here it is...

;
; Script Function: _CheckTimeBlock()
;   Checks if your system time is within a timeblock and returns
;   0 if it IS in the range, or 1 if it is NOT.
;
;   Nifty Feature=============> A range can be from say, 10:00-08:59
;                               you can have a range include the mid-night
;                               THIS IS THE REASON FOR THE LARGE CODE...
;                               Took 6 written pages (drafts) to get code correct
;                               had to do on paper as was not at computer
;                               when I had the idea.
;
;   Works with times in following formats (ALL Military):
;       USE:    TRANSLATES TO:
;       00:30 = 12:30AM
;       13:30 = 1:30PM
;       etc.  = etc.

i don't see any real use for this. At least you learnt something from it.

The reason I made this is so that I can easily check if a person is logged on outside of a certain time, and then if they are log them out, or I can make it close an app, or whatever ...

Or you can do the opposite, and block during this certain times just by using a NOT on the returned value.

I find this is a good item for using if you have kids, as you can dictate mandated logon and logoff times using it.

#include "_CheckTimeBlock.au3"
#notrayicon
Global $timeblock
$timeblock = "15:30-23:30"
_FormatTimeBlock($timeblock)
While 1
    $chk = _CheckTimeBlock()
If $chk Then
MsgBox(0,"","Logged On Outside of Scheduled Hours..."&@CRLF&_Iif($times_starth > 12,$times_starth-12,$times_starth)&":"&$times_startm&_Iif($times_starth < 12," AM"," PM")&"-"&_Iif($times_endh > 12,$times_endh-12,$times_endh)&":"&$times_endm&_Iif($times_endh < 12," AM"," PM")&@CRLF&"Logging off NOW!!!")
Shutdown(4)
Else
    EndIf
Sleep(10000)
WEnd

This would check if your kid is on the computer before 3:30pm and after 11:30pm

*Bump*

65 Views and only 1 post other than the one by myself...

Is no one interested in checking if system time is within a time range, and doing it easily??

I guess not...

Can I at least get some comments, or ideas for improving this...?

Laterzzz,

Onoitsu2

That's funny, i'll build a Child Lock and see if my parents like it.

[Edit] If you're bored you can also go to checkdateblock() or checkdayblock() for the day of the week. I would like this.

It's cool, don't get discouraged. Most programmers make thousands of programs that seem unuseful to some, but in the bigger scheme of things, someone may find this helpful and useful.

Laters -O no its u-!

I'm reviving this ancient thread because it gave me exactly what I needed for my project (and because there was some question as to whether this code would ever be useful).

I'm writing a script to circumvent the rule in my company's group policy that locks my screen after 10 minutes of idle time, causing me to have to re-enter my password. I want it to keep me alive during business hours, but then let the computer go into screen saver mode after business hours so that my monitor isn't on all night.

Here is my script. This ensures that your computer is never idle for more than 8 minutes during the specified time block. I'm new at this so feel free to critique and offer any feedback to improve it:

; keepalive.au3
#Include <Date.au3>
#Include <Timers.au3>
#Include <Misc.au3>
#Include "_CheckTimeBlock.au3"

; Make sure only one instance is running
if _Singleton("keepalive",1) = 0 Then
    Msgbox(0,"Warning","keepalive is already running")
    Exit
EndIf

; Code for tray
Opt("TrayMenuMode",1)
Opt("TrayOnEventMode",1)
TraySetClick(16)
$infoitem = TrayCreateItem("Info")
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1,"ShowInfo")
TrayCreateItem("")
$exititem = TrayCreateItem("Exit")
TrayItemSetOnEvent(-1,"ExitScript")
TraySetState()

; Functions for tray menu items
Func ShowInfo()
    Msgbox(0,"Info","Prevents computer from idling during specified hours.")
EndFunc
Func ExitScript()
    Exit
EndFunc

; Specify start and end times
Global $timeblock
$timeblock = "7:45-17:30"
_FormatTimeBlock($timeblock)

While 1
    $chk = _CheckTimeBlock()
    If $chk=0 Then ; if we are within the timeblock, $chk will return 0.
        $idle = _Timer_GetIdleTime() ; check current idle time
        If $idle >= 240000 Then ; if idle time is greater than 4 minutes (1 second = 1000)
            $m = MouseGetPos() ; wiggle mouse
            MouseMove($m[0], $m[1]+2)
            MouseMove($m[0], $m[1])
        EndIf
    EndIf
    Sleep(240000) ; wait 4 minutes to check again
WEnd

keepalive.au3
