Nesting loops with different time intervals

Recommended Posts

pete1234

I currently have 2 loops that function perfectly on their own. One loop checks the contents of a folder every 30 seconds, and the other loop checks to see what the default printer is every 30 minutes. I want to nest these loops together, so the script checks the folder every 30 seconds, but additionally checks the printer status every half hour.

This is the first:

Global $FolderName = "Test"
Global $SourcePath = @HomeDrive & "\" & $FolderName & "\"
Global $WatchPath = $SourcePath & "*.*"
Global $TargetPath = @HomeDrive & "\Processed\"
Global $WatchTime = 20 * 1000 ;Check every 20 seconds
Global $TimeStamp = TimerInit()
While 1
    If TimerDiff($TimeStamp) >= $WatchTime Then
        $FindFile = FileFindFirstFile($WatchPath)
        If $FindFile <> -1 Then
            While 1
                $FoundFile = FileFindNextFile($FindFile)
                    If @error Then ExitLoop
                $MovedFile = $TargetPath & @MON & "-" & @MDAY & "-" & @YEAR & "-" & @HOUR & "-" & @MIN & "-" & @SEC & "." & $FoundFile
                $MoveIt = FileMove($SourcePath & $FoundFile, $MovedFile, 9)
                    If $MoveIt <> 1 Then 
                        $rc = _INetSmtpMailCom($s_SmtpServer, $s_FromName, $s_FromAddress, $s_ToAddress, $s_Subject, $as_Body & $FoundFile & " was not moved.", $s_AttachFiles, $s_CcAddress, $s_BccAddress, $s_Username, $s_Password, $IPPort, $ssl)
                            If @error Then
                                $ErrorLog = FileWrite($TargetPath & "error.log", "Error:" & @error & " Rc:" & $rc)
                                    If $ErrorLog <> 1 Then
                                        MsgBox(0, "Error sending message", "Error code:" & @error & "  Rc:" & $rc, 30)
                                    EndIf
                            EndIf   
                        ExitLoop
                    EndIf
                Global $PathSplit = _PathSplit($MovedFile, $szDriveFile, $szDirFile, $szFNameFile, $szExtFile)
                Global $PathExt = $PathSplit[4]
                If $PathExt = ".pdf" Then
                    $PrintIt = _FilePrint($MovedFile)
                    If $PrintIt <> 1 Then
                        $rc = _INetSmtpMailCom($s_SmtpServer, $s_FromName, $s_FromAddress, $s_ToAddress, $s_Subject, $as_Body & $FoundFile & " was not printed.", $s_AttachFiles, $s_CcAddress, $s_BccAddress, $s_Username, $s_Password, $IPPort, $ssl)
                            If @error Then
                                $ErrorLog = FileWrite($TargetPath & "error.log", "Error:" & @error & " Rc:" & $rc)
                                    If $ErrorLog <> 1 Then
                                        MsgBox(0, "Error sending message", "Error code:" & @error & "  Rc:" & $rc, 30)
                                    EndIf
                            EndIf   
                    EndIf
                EndIf
                If $PathExt = ".tif" Or $PathExt = ".tiff" Then
                    Local $TifInfoPath = @TempDir & $PathSplit[3] & ".txt"
                    Local $Irfantest = RunWait($IrfanViewExe & " " & $MovedFile & " " & "/info=" & $TifInfoPath)
                    Local $TifReadSize = IniRead($TifInfoPath, $PathSplit[3] & $PathSplit[4], "Print size", "Oops!")
                    Local $TifSize = StringReplace(StringStripWS(StringRight($TifReadSize, 18),8),"inches","")
                    FileDelete($TifInfoPath)
                        If $TifSize = $11x17 Then
                            IniWrite($IrfanViewIni, "Print", "SizeTxt", "11x17")
                        EndIf

                            IniWrite($IrfanViewIni, "Print", "SizeTxt", "Legal")
                        EndIf
                        If $TifSize <> $11x17 And $TifSize <> $Legal Then ;If print size isn't Legal or 11x17, default to Letter
                            IniWrite($IrfanViewIni, "Print", "SizeTxt", "Letter")
                        EndIf
                    RunWait($IrfanViewExe & " " & $MovedFile & " " & "/print")

                    $rc = _INetSmtpMailCom($s_SmtpServer, $s_FromName, $s_FromAddress, $s_ToAddress, $s_Subject, $as_Body & $FoundFile & " is not a printable file.", $s_AttachFiles, $s_CcAddress, $s_BccAddress, $s_Username, $s_Password, $IPPort, $ssl)

                                    MsgBox(0, "Error sending message", "Error code:" & @error & "  Rc:" & $rc, 30)

I've tried placing the second loop before the last WEnd/after the first While of the first loop, but one loop always overrides the other. How can I get the two to co-exist?

Thanks a bunch.

I currently have 2 loops that function perfectly on their own. One loop checks the contents of a folder every 30 seconds, and the other loop checks to see what the default printer is every 30 minutes. I want to nest these loops together, so the script checks the folder every 30 seconds, but additionally checks the printer status every half hour.

so you need "func" (at least its what i use for that situations)

Global $looping = ""

_loop1() ;<== start first part of your script

While 1
    
WEnd


Func _loop1()
    While 1
        $looping = $looping + 1 ;<== count how many times did you loop
        
        ;<== your first part of the script
        
        If $looping > "60" Then ;<== every 30 seconds * 60 = 30 minutes
            $looping = "" ;<== reset looping count
            _loop2() ;<== goto second part of script
        EndIf
        Sleep(30000);<== loop every 30 seconds
    WEnd
EndFunc

Func _loop2()
    While 1
        
        ;<== your second part of the script
        
        _loop1() ;<== goback to the first part of script
    WEnd
EndFunc

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.

While 1
    If TimerDiff($PrintTimeStamp) >= $PrintWatchTime Then
        $PrintCheck = _GetDefaultPrinter()
        $PrintRead = IniRead($IrfanViewIni, "Print", "Printer", "oops!")
        If $PrintCheck <> $PrintRead Then
            IniWrite($IrfanViewIni, "Print", "Printer", $PrintCheck)
        EndIf
        $PrintTimeStamp = TimerInit()
    EndIf       
    If TimerDiff($TimeStamp) >= $WatchTime Then
and so on

My problem was I was viewing it as 2 loops instead of 1. This seems to work so far.

Edit: boqQ - I didn't see your reply before posting. I will play around with your idea and see if it works as well.
