Confused o.O

Recommended Posts

What I'm trying to do is this.

#1. Search for a window named "Hey" but only search for that window once every five minutes.

#2. Then after an hour close a window named "Main" and reload it.

But I got caught up with the timers, heres what I'm thinking of:

$5minutetimer = TimerInit()
$1hourtimer = TimerInit()

While 1

    $5minutediff = TimerDiff($5minutetimer)
    $1hourdiff = TimerDiff($1hourtimer)

    If $5minutediff > 300000 Then
        If WinExists("Hey") Then
            WinActivate("Hey")
            ControlClick("Hey", "", "Button1")
            $5minutetimer = TimerInit()
        EndIf
    EndIf

    If $1hourdiff > 3600000 Then
        WinClose("Main")
        WinWaitClose("Main")
        Sleep("10000")
        Run($path)
        $1hourtimer = TimerInit()
    EndIf
    
WEnd

Now I have 2 questions.

#1. Will this cause a heavy load on my pc looking for those windows?

#2. Will the above code work? I just typed it now by hand and I don't have the time to run/check it, speaking of that im heading off to work now ><

I would appreciate any help :)

Thanks,

Spar

toss in a sleep ( 10 ) somewhere in the loop outside of the if statements.

I would change the TimerDiff($5minutetimer) and TimerDiff($1hourtimer) references to Integers instead of leaving them as floating point integers.

But yea, without a sleep statement in the loop it will go crazy on your computer.

The code should work by the looks of it, provided $path is defined properly.

Just a sleep(100) to let the CPU get away from your script's loop for a while, as Tobei said.

The reset of the 5min timer needed to be outside of the If/EndIf for "Hey".

I also removed unnecessary saving of the TimerDiff() to a variable, but that's personal just preference:

$5minutetimer = TimerInit()
$1hourtimer = TimerInit()

While 1
    If TimerDiff($5minutetimer) > (5 * 60 * 1000) Then
        If WinExists("Hey") Then
            WinActivate("Hey")
            ControlClick("Hey", "", "Button1")
        EndIf
        $5minutetimer = TimerInit()
    EndIf
    If TimerDiff($1hourtimer) > (60 * 60 * 1000) Then
        WinClose("Main")
        WinWaitClose("Main")
        Sleep("10000")
        Run($path)
        $1hourtimer = TimerInit()
    EndIf
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

:P
