Help a noob with a progress bar?

3 posts in this topic

A simple noob, I've not ever written any code before. Ever. OK, I wrote one working AutoIt script last week, complete with icon. Oh, and the tutorials...

So I have a script that works - it watches for two services and an .exe to start, then it kicks off Rob Dunns WSUS forced update VBscript. All peachy.

Now I want to get a prgress bar showing the state of the three items being watched. Nothing works, I've been hammering on this for a couple of hours.

I was also looking to change the state and status of the checkboxes, but please don't tell me how to do that. If someone could help me figure out the progress bar, I should be able to use the same help to figure out the checkboxes.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

        $i = 0
        If _ServiceRunning("","wuauserv") Then
                $wuauserv = 1
                If _ServiceRunning("","BITS") Then
                    $BITS = 1
                    If ProcessExists("wuauclt.exe") Then
                        $wuauclt = 1
                            $i = $i + $wuauclt + $BITS + $wuauserv
                            call( "Meter", $i )
                            $wuauserv = 0

Edit:Oh, sry

Just change the $i in the Meter function to $sMsg and use Select...Case...EndSelect structure.

Edit2: Also, you can call it instead of using Call("Meter", $i). Meter($i).

Edit3: As to another problem, the Meter function doesn't know about $Label13 because it's declared inside another function. You need to declare this variable as global or outside any function.

Authenticity, +5 Karma to you for providing the right kind of advice, and not attempting to fix my code.

None of your advice made sense to me. :o So I figured it out. :( There were also lots of other noob mistakes in the code. :D

But thanks to your hints, now it works! :D

Any and all criticsims, suggestions for improvement, etc. are welcome as I try to teach myself to write code. :P
