How to wait for winzip to end

Recommended Posts

rizwanahmed24

Hi

i am writing a script that

1. takes time stamp

2. open folder

3. select all files, perform right click

4. select 'encrypt' from context menu (third party tool is used here. the tool encrypts all files one by one)

5. take time stamp after step 4 is finished.

the problem is, i am unable to identify when step 4 ends. since the encryption process is from third party, and performs encryption of files one by one, how can i make my script wait for it, and make it know when the encryption ends?

rizwanahmed24,

If the 3rd party tool exits when it is finished, you could look to see if its process has terminated by looping ProcessExists. If it restarts for each new file, you might have to make sure it remains closed for a longer period before deeming the whole list to have been completed.

Can U share ur code which is written yet by U?

i dont think the code will help here. but here it is anyways, this is my first code in autoit, therefore..... yes u understand wht..

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 AutoIt Version: 3.3.0.0
 Author:         myName

 Script Function:
    Template AutoIt script.

#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

; Script Start - Add your code below here

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>


;decalartoin
Global $margin_label_left = 10
Global $margin_button_left = 100
Global $height = 20
Global $button_width = 50


GUICreate("Test-Secure File", 300, 150) 

;create count label and text box
$btn = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Count", $margin_label_left, 10)
Global $tbx_Count = GUICtrlCreateInput("5", $margin_button_left, 10, 70, $height);

;create size label and text box
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Size in KBs", $margin_label_left, 32)
Global $tbx_Size = GUICtrlCreateInput("5", $margin_button_left, 32, 70, $height);


;perform and exit buttons
$btn_Perform = GUICtrlCreateButton("Perform", $margin_button_left, 100,$button_width, $height);
$btn_Exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", $margin_button_left + $button_width + 20, 100, $button_width, $height)


GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
while 1
    $GUImsg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    Select
        
        case $GUImsg = $btn_Perform
            Local $p = GenerateRandomFiles(GUICtrlRead($tbx_Count), GUICtrlRead($tbx_Size))
            $timeStart = TimerInit()
            SecureFiles($p)
            
            if ProcessExists("SecureFile") Then
            Else
                MsgBox(0, "securing ended", "securing ended")
            EndIf
            
            
            
            $time = TimerDiff($timeStart)           
            $timeEnd = $time / 1000 
            
    ;MsgBox(0, "time taken in seconds", $time)
                                
        case $GUImsg = $btn_Exit
            ExitLoop
            
    EndSelect
WEnd
        

Func SecureFiles($dirPath)

    ShellExecuteWait($dirPath)
    send("{Down}")  
    Send("^a")
    send("+{F10}")
    send("{Down 2}")    
    send ("{enter}")
        
EndFunc


#cs 
u dont need to look at it, its a small program to generate random files 
#ce
Func GenerateRandomFiles( $count,  $size)

    $fileGeneratorProcess = ShellExecute("FileGeneratorTool.exe")
    WinWaitActive("File Generator Tool")
    Local $dirPath = @ScriptDir & "\test data"
    
    DirCreate($dirPath)
    Send($dirPath)
    Send("{TAB 2}")
    Send($count)
    Send("{TAB}")
    Send($size)
    Send("{TAB}")
    Send("{ENTER}")
    ProcessWait("FileGeneratorTool.exe")    
    Send("!{F4}")
    
    return $dirPath
    
EndFunc

thanks Melba23. 'ProcessExists' did the trick

just to give a different solution for further reference

you could make an MD5 hash of the files while they aren't encrypted and then make hashes every 5 seconds or so and check until all the hashes are different :(

or only the hash of the last file is different from the hash once it's encrypted ^_^;)
