Struggling with data collection of an minimized window

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm struggling with Utorrent and data collection, This is the second time I have rewritten the code,

but still, it won't work properly. It works great with Utorrent until you

minimize the window, then it wont collect the data anymore.

If you start the script when Utorrent is minimized it will collect the data once,

but thats it.

Anyway, here is the code, You can try it out, just input

the name of a current active torrent in Utorrent and press


Btw, the loop dosn't work properly, the label can

never turn 100...

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <String.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI")  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$LABEL4 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label",0,0,500)
$LABEL1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label",0,20,500)
$LABEL5 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label",0,40,500)
$LABEL11 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Label",0,60,500)
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("Torrent name",0,100,500)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start Script",0,120)
GUISetState (@SW_SHOW)       ; will display an empty dialog box

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $MSG = $button Then
        $Readinput = GUICtrlRead($Input)
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop

Func Collectdata()
$title = "[REGEXPTITLE:Torrent.\d+.*$]"
$listcontrol = "[CLASSNN:SysListView321]"

$hWnd = ControlGetHandle( $title, "", $listcontrol )
$header_hWnd = _GUICtrlListView_GetHeader($hWnd)

$FindTN = _GUICtrlListView_FindInText($HWND, $Readinput)
$ccount = ControlListView("[REGEXPTITLE:Torrent.\d+.*$]", "", "SysListView321", "GetSubItemCount")
$icount = ControlListView("[REGEXPTITLE:Torrent.\d+.*$]", "", "SysListView321", "GetItemCount")

Dim $listarray[$ccount][$icount+1]
For $c = 0 To $ccount-1
    $listarray[$c][0] = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($header_hWnd, $c)
   $Countmore = $icount - $FindTN
   For $i = $FindTN To $icount-$Countmore
        $itemtext = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($hWnd, $i, $c)
        $listarray[$c][$i+1] = $itemtext
For $c = 0 To $ccount-1
    For $i = 0 To $icount-1

For $c = 0 To $ccount-1
    $tmp = ''
    For $i = 0 To $icount-1
        $tmp &= $listarray[$c][$i+1]
    Switch $c
        Case 0
            GUICtrlSetData($LABEL4,"Torrent name:" & ' ' & $listarray[$c][0] & $tmp)
        Case 2
            GUICtrlSetData($LABEL1,"Size:" & ' ' & $listarray[$c][0] & $tmp)
        Case 4
            GUICtrlSetData($LABEL5,"Statusr:" & ' ' & $listarray[$c][0] & $tmp)
        Case 7
            GUICtrlSetData($LABEL11,"Downloadspeed:" & ' ' & $listarray[$c][0] & $tmp)
Until $LABEL11 = 100

Ah, it is a limitation within Utorrent.

The interface won't update when minimized.

will it update with the window hidden?

That would probably work. But you won't

be able to work with utorrent. If the user

adds a new torrent while downloading

the other primary one it will once again

stop refreshing, if the user

minimizes the window.

Edit: True, it updated while the window was hidden.

Is memory reading a option?
