Sleeping for random amount of time


Recommended Posts

Guest rcm87

I would like autoit to send a character, sleep for a random amount of time between 2 set times. So pick a random time beteen 10 seconds and 15 seconds and send a character. I am a brand new script writer so this could be pretty simple. It looks like to me they sleep is looking for an int and not a value. Here is what I have so far. Thanks for the help.

$timeleft = 28
While $timeleft > 0

$sleeping = Random(50000 , 10000)
Send ("2") 
sleep = $sleeping;  ;<--errors out here

$timeleft = $timeleft - 1

sleep = $sleeping;  ;<--errors out here

It should be $sleep = $sleeping

It seem like you are just miss the $ symbol in font of sleep :ph34r:

nope, it was that he wanted sleep to be the command, and $sleeping to be the variable used by it. this would do that:

$timeleft = 28
While $timeleft > 0

$sleeping = Random(50000 , 10000)
Send ("2")
sleep($sleeping)

$timeleft = $timeleft - 1
wend;- this was missing

of course, Larry's does the same thing while saving the use of a variable that's not needed, unless $sleeping will be reused at some point later?

emmanuel is correct. I was using sleep as the command in that example and in my tests it works. $c is the variable in which the random number will be placed. I did make a mistake by using 10 and 15 in that example, and it should be 10000 and 15000 because 5000 is just 5 seconds. Edited by autoitNOW
