First Script Help

5 posts in this topic

Hi People, This is my very first script, i read about this in APC and it seemed pretty cool. I am making a script that u open it and it launches defragmenter and then opens notepad and writes the time and date u started, then it waits for it to finish then it says the time it finish, then loops. But writes in the same document i dunno why it wont work.

While 1 = 1
Send("#r")
WinWaitActive("Run")
Send("dfrg.msc{Enter}")
WinWaitActive("Disk Defragmenter")
MouseClick("primary", 160, 370, 1)
Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
Send("Defragmentation started at {F5}.")
sleep(500)
WinSetState ( "Untitled - Notepad", "Progress", @SW_MINIMIZE )
WinWaitActive("Disk Defragmeter")
send("{RIGHT}")
send("{ENTER}")
WinSetState ( "Untitled - Notepad", "Progress", @SW_MAXIMIZE )
Send("{ENTER}")
Send("Defragmentation Completed at {F5}")
Send("{ENTER 2}")
WEnd

Just tell me where i went wrong please, also if someone could tell me another way of clicking on the defragment button apart from "Mouseclick"

You could also use defrag.exe :P Should work better than simulated mouse clicks. Google the usage of it thought. I'm not too sure. I think if you go run and type "defrag.exe C:" it will defrag C:... Think... :)

Do you want it to loop? Do you want it to write in the same document the start and finish times? What exactly are you trying to do?

My understanding of what you want to do is open and run defrag, document start and stop times, end script. Why not just use task scheduler it does all this already.
