Checkbox....better way?

Recommended Posts

Champak

I'm communicating with another app and I need to check some checkboxes. Sometimes the checkboxes don't always check....not because of the cpu load. I've tried a few different things to make sure the boxes ALWAYS gets checked and none of them are flawless and I just wanted to know if that is "just" how it is.

I've tried controlfocus and then controlcommand with "Check"

I've tried a "do...until" in between is controlcommand with "Check", and the until is until controlcommand with "IsChecked". (hope that is clear)

Neither ALWAYS works. So is there any other suggestions on how to make sure all checkboxes are always checked?

Don't know, but if ControlCommand gives the correct result with "IsChecked" then maybe ControlClick will change the state reliably.

This is what I did which seems to work thus far no matter what. Essentially, I kept the do...until, but I added a controlfocus and something to compensate for CPU load within the sleep.

ViewFunctions(31502, $DefaultCheck[2][0], $DefaultCheck[2][1]);A bunch more of these

Func ViewFunctions($Control, $State, $StateResult);DONE

    Do
        ControlFocus("Dingo", "", $Control)
        Sleep(10)
        ControlCommand ( "Dingo", "", $Control, $State)
    Until ControlCommand ( "Dingo", "", $Control, "IsChecked") = $StateResult
    Sleep(5 + CPUSleeper($SleepEx))

EndFunc

Func CPUSleeper($SleepEx)

    If Not ProcessExists("taskmgr.exe") Then Return ;This will prevent autoit error because of not seeng the task manager
    $Sleeper = StatusbarGetText("Windows Task Manager", "", 2)
    $Sleeper = StringSplit($Sleeper, " ")
    $Sleeper = StringSplit($Sleeper[3], "%")
    ;_ConsoleWrite($Sleeper[1])

    If $Sleeper[1] > 90 Then
        $CPUSleep = 500
    ElseIf $Sleeper[1] > 60 Then
        $CPUSleep = 250
    ElseIf $Sleeper[1] > 40 Then
        $CPUSleep = 100
    Else
        $CPUSleep = 0
    EndIf
    
    _ConsoleWrite("!CPU COMPENSATOR SLEEP EXTENDER +++++++++++++ Load: " & $Sleeper[1] & "%")
    
    Return $CPUSleep

EndFunc   ;==>CPUSleeper

But I do have a question on what I've done here. I don't like the way I have to read the CPU by opening up the task manager. I've seen a couple other versions similar to:

but they are too slow. Is there a better way to do this without calling the task manager and hiding it? I feel there has to be.
