WinWaitClose ( "title" [, "text" [, timeout]] )

I think it should work for you.


A smile costs nothing!!!! :-)

Hello ;D

I´m new on AutoIt and I want to know how can I make my script close a window (like media player) in an estipulated hour (like 3 AM, 12 AM)???

Here's a generic way of handling it:

CODE

$closeHour = "03"

$closeMin = "00"

$timeClose = $closeHour &$closeMin

Do

Sleep(1000)

$time = @HOUR &@MIN

Until $time = $timeClose

ProcessClose("wmplayer.exe")

WinWaitClose ( "title" [, "text" [, timeout]] )

I think it should work for you.

sorry but i think you misunderstand the WinWaitClose func,

as describe, it's Pauses execution of the script until the requested window does not exist.

So it won't help make a window close in a targeted time

i haven't checked but i think it shoul be like this :

$hrs = @hour
if $hrs=3 then;change as you want
winclose("Window Media Player",""); please check the exact title, i write this from my memory and i have a bad ones  :rolleyes: 
msgbox(64,"Closed ...","Window Media Player was closed at : " & $hrs,3)
endif

I tried the two codes, but the window still dont close :/

And i need the script running every day, nonstop. It close the window and then re-execute itself for another close on another day. Get it?

I dont know what is wrong, so here is my code:

tSetOption("MustDeclareVars", True)

; Tempo de espera entre novas tentativas de abrir o video (em minutos)
Dim $INTERVALO_ERRO = 5

; Config do media player classic
Dim $PLAYER = "mplayerc.exe"
Dim $PLAYER_TOCAR = "/play"
Dim $PLAYER_TELA_CHEIA = "/fullscreen"
Dim $ARQUIVOS = "c:\videos\video01.wmv"

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

;Play the video until the computer shutdown
Dim $PARAMETROS = $PLAYER_TOCAR & " " & $PLAYER_TELA_CHEIA & " " & $ARQUIVOS;

Dim $SUCESSO = 0

While True
    Dim $RESULTADO = ShellExecuteWait($PLAYER, $PARAMETROS)
    If $RESULTADO <> $SUCESSO Then
        Sleep(1000 * 60 * $INTERVALO_ERRO)
    EndIf
WEnd

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

;Closes the Media Player Classic at an estipulated hour

Dim $closeHour = "10"
Dim $closeMin = "18"
Dim $timeClose = $closeHour &$closeMin

Do
Sleep(1000)
Dim $time = @HOUR &@MIN
Until $time = $timeClose

ProcessClose("mplayerc.exe")

I dont know what is wrong, so here is my code:

Monamo knows what he's talking about and you can trust his code to work every time. But since you say it didn't work, I'd guess the problem is with the process name you are trying to close. Make sure task manager lists "mplayerc.exe" as the actual process name. I tried the following with windows media player and it worked like a champ.

;~ Dim $closeHour = "10"
;~ Dim $closeMin = "18"
Dim $timeClose = "1018"

Do
   Sleep(30000)
   Dim $time = @HOUR &@MIN
Until $time = $timeClose

ProcessClose("wmplayer.exe")

A couple of points, you don't need to have $closeHour and $closeMin to set $timeClose. Also the Sleep(1000) is pausing the script for 1 second. Since you are trying to close the program at a specific hour and minute, there isn't a need to check the time every second. The Sleep(30000) checks the time every 30 seconds and is easier on your computer. Hope this helps and good luck.

Thx!!! ;D

It helped a lot!

The code was right, but when I combined it with my previous one, it just dont run :/

So, i´ve created another script with this code and one with my previous code, and worked great! ;D

And added @SEC to be more precise.

Added a "Do" command to make it loop forever, so it wont close ´till the variable $time was equal to 25 ;D and it will never be 25 :D

thx for the tips :)

This forum rlz! ;)
