Process exists then stop exec.

4 posts in this topic

Ok I am writing a script that will use my Kee Pass database to auto enter in my username and password by hotkeys. I got all that squared away. What I am stuck on is stopping the execution of the script if the process exists or not. However I need this to run before the exe actually starts is this possible? And I know Kee Pass has global hotkeys but I dont want to use them. Here is the code:

CODE
#include <Misc.au3>

_Singleton("KeeEnterInfo.au3")

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)

HotKeySet("^l", "Exec")

HotKeySet("^g", "Gettitle")

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")

If ProcessExists("KeeEnterInfo.exe") Then

Exit

EndIf

While 1

Sleep(500)

If WinExists("database.kdbx - KeePass Password Safe") Or WinExists("Open Database - database.kdbx") Then

Else

ShellExecute("C:\Program Files\KeePass Password Safe\KeePass.exe")

sleep(500)

WinActivate("Open Database - database.kdbx")

EndIf

WEnd

Func Exec()

$t = WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]", "")

ControlSend("database.kdbx - KeePass Password Safe", "", "WindowsForms10.SysListView32.app.0.33c0d9d1", $t)

WinActivate("database.kdbx - KeePass Password Safe")

ControlSend("database.kdbx - KeePass Password Safe", "", "WindowsForms10.SysListView32.app.0.33c0d9d1", "^v")

WinSetState("database.kdbx ", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)

EndFunc

Func Gettitle()

$t = WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]", "")

ControlSend("Add Entry", "", "WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.33c0d9d4", $t)

EndFunc

Func Terminate()

Exit

EndFunc

And I was able to stop the script from starting twice but I also want to make it so the process is not running multiple times even if a user tries to run the .exe again. Is there a piece of code that will allow me to check the process status before actually starting the process. Heh, sounds kinda rediculous.

This work for you?

If _Singleton (@ScriptName, 1) = 0 Then ProcessClose(@ScriptName)

Actually, maybe that's not what you want?

That was the form that kills the existing instance of the script and lets the second one run.

If you want to block the second script, keeping the first then just "_Singleton(@ScriptName,0)" ought to do you.
