Elegant way to perform a time-query?

5 posts in this topic

Hi

I'm still quite new with AutoIt and i wonder how to script (most elegantly) this:

I want to perform a job (a function or something else - dosen't matter) inside the script at exactly a specific time, e.g. every day at 11:00h. The script should always be running (sleeping?) and at this time do something once. Then the script again should wait for the next day 11:00h and so on...

How do i script this "time-query" most elegantly? :D

Thanks for all suggestions!

Roman.

Thanks. I did this already, but additional with "... AND If @SEC = 0", because it needs to be exactly on 11:00:00h. The problem now is that if the script does meanwhile something else, it could miss this one second for the query and do nothing.

Probably my question was imprecisely.

Thanks again.

Roman.

Why not compile whatever you need to do into an exe and use Windows Scheduler to run it at precisely 11 or whatever time you need it run?

$FinePrecision = 100

While 1
Sleep(30000)
If @Hour = 10 And @Min = 59 And @Sec > 30 Then
While @Sec <> 0
Sleep($FinePrecision)
Wend

PerformFn()
EndIf

If I am too verbose, just say so. You don't need to run on and on.
