How to pause a script while on another XP session

6 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I wrote this to limit my children to use the pc to an hour per day. Every day it goes back to 60 minutes and we can stop it or adding 30 minutes from the icon on the tray(with a password, of course).

I would like the script to pause (or to stop the timer) while the session is not active. I mean if they change user instead of loging off.

So, here is the code... Enjoy;

CODE

#NoTrayIcon

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <EditConstants.au3>

#Include <Constants.au3>

Opt("TrayMenuMode",1) ; Default tray menu items (Script Paused/Exit) will not be shown.

Global $TmpRestant, $RegMotDePasse

$Jour = @MDAY

$RegPath = "hkcu\software\timer"

$RegMotDePasse = RegRead("hklm\software\timer","MotDePasse")

If @error Then $RegMotDePasse = "password" ;if no set password in the registry, we set "password" as password

$RegTmpMax = RegRead("hklm\software\timer","TempMax")

If @error Then $RegTmpMax = 60 ;if no set max time in the registry, we set 60 minutes

$TmpMax = (60*$RegTmpMax)

$RegJour = RegRead($RegPath, "jour") ; if not yet connected today, we set the timer back to max time

If @error or $RegJour <> $Jour then

$TmpRestant = $TmpMax ;en secondes

RegWrite($RegPath, "jour", "reg_sz", $Jour)

RegWrite($RegPath, "tempsrestant", "reg_sz", $TmpRestant)

Else

$TmpRestant = (RegRead($RegPath, "tempsrestant")+15) ;add 15 seconds to signon on process

If $TmpRestant <= 30 Then _finsession() ;if already timed out... bye bye

EndIf

;~ tray to add 30 minutes or to stop the script

$FermeTimer = TrayCreateItem("Illimité")

TrayCreateItem("")

$Ajout30Min = TrayCreateItem("Ajout 30 Min")

TraySetState()

;~ Début du compte à rebours

$begin = TimerInit()

While 1

$dif = TimerDiff($begin)

$SecRest = ($TmpRestant - (Round($dif/1000,0)))

$MinRest = (Ceiling($SecRest/60))

ToolTip("Reste " & $MinRest & " Min.", 450, 1, "")

RegWrite($RegPath, "tempsrestant", "reg_sz", $SecRest)

If $SecRest <= 0 Then ExitLoop

$msg = TrayGetMsg() ;verifie si on a activé une commande du tray

Select

Case $msg = 0

Case $msg = $FermeTimer

_Verif("Exit")

Case $msg = $Ajout30Min

_Verif("30min")

EndSelect

sleep(100)

WEnd

_finsession() ;on appelle la fonction de fermeture de session

Exit

Func _Verif($action)

GUICreate("Mot de passe", 100, 60, @DesktopWidth / 2 - 160, @DesktopHeight / 2 - 45, $WS_CAPTION, 0x00000018)

$MotDePasse = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 5, 125, 20 ,$ES_PASSWORD)

$btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ok", 40, 30, 60, 20)

GUISetState()

$msg = 0

While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

Select

Case $msg = $btn

ExitLoop

Case $msg = $MotDePasse

ExitLoop

EndSelect

WEnd

if GUICtrlRead($MotDePasse) = $RegMotDePasse Then

GUIDelete()

Select

Case $action = "Exit"

Exit

Case $action = "30min"

$TmpRestant = ($TmpRestant + 1800)

EndSelect

Else

GUIDelete()

MsgBox(0,"Erreur", "Mauvais mot de passe",3)

EndIf

EndFunc ;_Verif

func _finsession()

For $Compteur = 1 to 60

ToolTip("La session va se fermer dans " & (61-$Compteur) & " secondes... c'est le temps de sauvergarder!", 450, 450, "Temps écoulé")

Sleep(1000)

Next

Shutdown(4)

EndFunc ;_finsession

Thanks,

Thierry

You would probably need to change to a different type of timer function and check for the presence of the desktop to determine if the user is logged on or if fast user switching has been used.

something like:

for $i = 60 to 1 step -1

if not WinExists("Program Manager") then _pause_timer()

sleep(1000 * 60)

next

func _pause_timer()

do

sleep(999)

until WinExists("Program Manager")

endfunc

I'm really not sure if that code will work and I like to test such things before I post - but I do not have fast user switching enabled on this computer. Maybe others online can comment.

BTW, good for you for setting limits for kids online.

I was searching for exactly the same thing, and exatly for the same reason (but it's not my soon, but brother!)

I tried the methode but it's not working, cause even if we lock the session, the Program Manager Window (the desktop) is always existing.
