AFAIK the download can only be stopped by terminating the script. No pause option.

InetGetFilename? So you think that you should just be able to pass "myfile.exe" to InetGet and it know where to DL it from? Maybe I am not understanding you correctly, but you can't even access files on your computer without having the full Path come into play.

I use InetGet all the time in my scripts and only have issues with CPU when my loops are un-slept or if it doesn't find the destination... What exactly is your problem here?

Don't understand you first request but the CPU issue should be solved in the last unstable... see here : #39532

Maybe if you provide some syntax we would be able to possibly help you fulfill this feature in the future. I don't really understand where you are going with it. It could be a good idea, just need an idea of what we are talking about here.

So you are proposing something like:

InetGet("BF2-Lanvegas.rar", "BF2-Lanvegas.rar" )

That is InetGet(RemoteFile, LocalCached).

So you think AutoIt should search the internet for the file "BF2-Lanvegas.rar"? How else do you supose we know where the file is located on the internet?

The way I read it that he wants to know be able to request autoit for the current file being downloaded.

Don't understand why though because you initiate it yourself and can only do one download at the time so it should be easy to keep track of yourself.

well, thought it maybe were possible to takeout the filename from the full link, i guess that aint possible, though

So you can't download two files at the same time with Inetget?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

the source filename can be retrieved from the url:

$filename = StringTrimLeft($Url, StringInStr($Url, "/", 0, -1))

and a script can only download 1 file at a time. you would need to spawn multiple scripts to download multiple files concurrently.

Thanks to JdeB for the idea.

;------ Start of download.au3 ------
;Compile this file so you you can use it as:
;Download.exe URL [Filename]
;URL        Url of the file you want to download
;Filename   (Optional) Location of the downloaded file
;
;Example:
;Run('download.exe http://www.ige.dk/files/Battlefield2/BF2-Lanvegas.rar "' & @DesktopDir & '"')

$Params = $CmdLine[0]
If $Params > 0 Then
   Select
      Case $Params = 1
         $Url = $CmdLine[1]
         $Filename = StringTrimLeft($Url, StringInStr($Url, "/", 0, -1))
         
      Case $Params = 2
         $Url = $CmdLine[1]
         $Filename = $CmdLine[2]
         
   EndSelect
   InetGet($Url, $Filename, 1)
   Exit 0
Else
   Exit 1
EndIf
;------ End of download.au3 ------


;Examples you could use with download.exe

;Example 1
;This will always download the file to the same directory as the script, even if download.exe is located in another folder
RunWait("download.exe http://www.ige.dk/files/Battlefield2/BF2-Lanvegas.rar", @ScriptDir)

;Example 2
;Same as example 1 only here it returns the PID of the download and continues the script.
;This way you can cancel it by using ProcessClose($PID_download) and you can start more downloads.
$PID_download = Run("download.exe http://www.ige.dk/files/Battlefield2/BF2-Lanvegas.rar " & @ScriptDir & "\BF2-Lanvegas.rar")

When spawning multiple scripts it doesnt wait for the script to execute completely before going on? I guess it wouldnt make sense to, but for some reason I thought it did :-P

What do you mean exactly?

Does the main script not wait? Use RunWait

NVM I actually had my question answered after reading another thread right after I posted this.

You can run scripts simultaneously using #include. I didnt think you could, but I wanted to confirm. I just read another thread confirming that. (It only makes logical sense that you cant).

Slimshady,

Took your script and modified it so that it will show a progress window and have a Cancel download option. It will also stack the progress windows so you can see multiple at the same time. the below script will have to be compiled with the latest Unstable.

;------ Start of download.au3 ------
;Compile this file so you you can use it as:
;Run('download.exe URL "Filename"')
;URL        Url of the file you want to download
;Filename   (Optional) Location of the downloaded file
;
;Example Command to put in your script:
;Run('download.exe http://www.xyz.com/file2download.exe "c:\temp files\targetfile.exe"')
;
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
;HttpSetProxy(1); Proxy settings....
Select
   Case $CmdLine[0] = 1
      $Url = $CmdLine[1]
      $Filename = StringTrimLeft($Url, StringInStr($Url, "/", 0, -1))
   Case $CmdLine[0] = 2
      $Url = $CmdLine[1]
      $Filename = $CmdLine[2]
   Case Else
      MsgBox(0 + 16, "Error", "Invalid number of commandline parameters:" & $CmdLine[0])
      Exit
EndSelect
; Set progress window (multiple windows will be showns below each other
_SetProgressBar ()
; Get size of Source file
ProgressSet(0, " Getting Source information..")
$Tsize = InetGetSize($Url)
; start download of file
If Not InetGet($Url, $Filename, 1, 1) Then
  ;MsgBox(0 + 16, "Error", "Error Downloading URL:" & $Url)
  ;SetError(2)
  ;Exit 0
EndIf
; update file download progress box till finished
While @InetGetActive
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()
   If $msg = $H_Cancel or $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then
      $rc = MsgBox(4100, "Cancel download ?", "Do you want to cancel the download ?")
      If $rc = 6 Then ExitLoop
   EndIf
   GUICtrlSetData($H_Progress, Int(@InetGetBytesRead / $Tsize * 100))
   GUICtrlSetData($H_Status2, Int(@InetGetBytesRead / $Tsize * 100) & " % Completed    downloaded " & Int(@InetGetBytesRead / 1000) & " of " & Int($Tsize / 1000) & "Kb")
   Sleep(50)
Wend
ProgressOff()
Exit 1
;---------------------------------------------
; set progress bar at its own unique position

  ; Find first free number for downloads session
   $NbrDl = 0
   While WinExists("URLDOWNLOAD" & StringFormat("%00i", $NbrDl))

I'm making my own download manager.

I wanted to add icons associated with the extensions but I failed.

I will finish it later and post it.
