Script Help - While/For

5 posts in this topic

I am working on a PHP web app.

Basically what I want is a script that will run in the background always, and when a certain page is loaded, it will execute keystrokes and load an application.

This seems like an easy way as i've stuffed around with PHP execution to no avail. It's only for one PC anyway.

This works:

If WinWaitActive("Google - Mozilla Firefox") Then

Send('#r')

Send('cmd{ENTER}')

EndIf

But after CMD launches, the script terminates.

I want it to be running in the background ready to do the same thing each time the page is loaded, is that possible?

I've tried but I end up havign the cmd popup like 20 times at once.

Thanks

Depends if you need to do the action only once after the window exists, or each time it's the active window. Only you know exactly what you are doing. But I would suggest once you perform your action then using something like WinWaitNotActive, or if you don't want to do the action again until a new window with that title pops up, then wait as long as the window exists.. as in While WinExists sleep(250)

until the window is closed.. then you wait for it to pop up again.

2 nested loops should do it.

hey,

I think this should do the trick

Global Const $sWinTitle = "Google - Mozilla Firefox"
Global $bDone = 0

While 1 
    If Not $bDone And WinActive($sWinTitle) Then
        Send('#r')
        Send('cmd{ENTER}')
        $bDone = 1
    ElseIf $bDone And Not WinExists($sWinTitle) Then
        $bDone = 0
    EndIf
    Sleep(25)
WEnd

Thanks to you both.

This one works perfectly!

Actually just one more thing,

Is there a faster/more efficent way to launch applications within an AutoIt script?

Start -> Run CMD is fine,

but when the file paths start to get longer there's that lil' bit of lag/delay while it enters the keystrokes in and i'd rather not have it
