_fileListToArray() not generating specific lists and question about random

5 posts in this topic

I need help with 2 things:

1) I need my script to generate a list of all the wmv files in the script directory. When I use:

Global $AviList = _FileListToArray(@ScriptDir) 
_ArrayDisplay($AviList)

I can see the array with all of the elements from the script directory however when I try to whittle down the list to just wmv files with this:

Global $AviList = _FileListToArray(@ScriptDir & "\" & "*.wmv") 
_ArrayDisplay($AviList)

I get nothing. How can I put only the wmv files in a directory in the array? Also I would like to call random files from the array and play them in mplayer2 which brings me to the next item I need help with.

2) I need my script to record the time between activity in the script and after 20 seconds begin to play the random wmv files from above. eg I need the script to wait until a video file is done playing and then start counting to 20 and then start randomly playing the files in the array. The trick is for the script to wait until any video files are done playing before calling the random video file section. Can I use WinWait make the script start counting after the video file is done playing?

Here's my code so far:

Global $AviList = _FileListToArray(@ScriptDir) 
Global $time = 10;sec
$timer = TimerInit()
$Form1 = GUICreate("Scan Barcode", 150, 22, 1, 1); creats a GUI window (Width, Height, Left, Top,)
$edit_field = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 0, 0, 148, 21); ( "text", left, top , width , height)

GUISetState()

; temp.txt is a file that has the encrypted file string stored in it
; barcode.ini is a file that is used as a temp file for storing the data

If FileExists(@ScriptDir & "\" & "barcode.ini") Then;deletes the temp file barcode.ini in case of a computer crash
   FileDelete(@ScriptDir & "\" & "barcode.ini")
EndIf

FileOpen("temp.ini", 0); calls the file temp.txt for reading later
; Check if file opened for writing OK
If $file = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error 101", "Cant find barcode.ini.")
    Exit
EndIf
$file = FileRead("temp.ini"); reads temp.txt and assigns the data to $file

    FileOpen("barcode.ini", 2);opens the file in write mode (it will create the file if it doesn't exist)
    $Decrypted_Data = _StringEncrypt (0 , $file, "1234"); decrypts the string "$file" - Tested
    FileWrite("barcode.ini", $Decrypted_Data); writes the data to barcode.ini
    FileClose("barcode.ini");closes the file
_ArrayDisplay($AviList)
While 1 
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        FileClose(@ScriptDir & "\" & "barcode.ini")
        FileDelete(@ScriptDir & "\" & "barcode.ini")
        Exit
    Case $edit_field
           $user_input = GUICtrlRead($edit_field); sets $user_input to whatever was typed in the edit box
            If IniRead("barcode.ini", "AviCodes", $user_input, "no entry") = "no entry" Then
                MsgBox(16, "Code not found", "The Barcode you entered "&$user_input&" does not have a video.",2)
                WinActivate("Scan Barcode")
                GUICtrlSetData($edit_field, "");erases not successful input
            Else
                $video_file = (@ScriptDir & "\" & IniRead("barcode.ini", "AviCodes", $user_input, "no entry"))
                Run (@ProgramFilesDir & "\Windows Media Player\mplayer2.exe /play /fullscreen /close "&$video_file&"")
                Sleep (5000)
                WinActivate("Scan Barcode")
                GUICtrlSetData($edit_field, "");erases not successful input
            EndIf
EndSwitch
WEnd

The first parameter in _FileListToArray is the folder. For a filter you add a second parameter.

Global $AviList = _FileListToArray(@ScriptDir,"*.wmv") 
_ArrayDisplay($AviList)

I haven't read your second piece of script so I've no help with that. (Too late now for me.)


Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

That part worked well Thanks. Now for part 2.

OK I did the following and it is playing random avi files after 20 seconds:

I am using mplayer2, a stripped down version of windows media player, and with the tags /close and /fullscreen the movie will start to play and immediately go into fullscreen mode and when the movie is finished the media player window closes. I need:

1. The video player window to stay full screen but I need to make the barcode entry ($Edit_Field) the active window so that if someone scans a barcode during the movie that the movie will call the correct video file for the barcode.

I dont require a text window asking for a barcode so that can go if there is a way to make this work this way.

I dont require the video player to be media player either. I would prefer to embed the video control into an autoit controled window. Can I do that?
