Multiple GUI Loops

6 posts in this topic

Okay,

What i am wondering about is the presence of multiple While Loops in My GUI. I am writing an application that restarts a few different server applications. Normally this wouldnt be a problem with this code.

While 1

If NOT ProcessExists( "MyserverApp.exe" ) Then
Run( "C:\My Server\MyServerApp.exe", "C:\My Server\" )
Else
EndIf

The only problem is i need some apps tobe restartable and some to not be. Also this code uses too much CPU and the server app is very demanding. What i want to do is have it so it checks if App1 is running every second, if app2 is running every 5, and Apps 3 & 4 every .5 seconds. (EXAMPLES) How can i go about this?

Thanks for help in advance,

Insignia96!

insignia96,

Sounds like the perfect job for some Adlib functions. :-)

Look at AdlibEnable in the Help file.

Try something with TimerInit and TimerDiff.

Then loop multiple checks with that TimerDiff in the While 1 loop.

time1 = TimerInit()

time2 = TimerInit()

While 1

If TimeDiff(time1) >= 1000 Then ; TimeDiff is in milliseconds. So 1000 = 1 sec, 500 = 0,5 sec.

Run(App1)

time1 = TimerInit()

EndIf

If TimeDiff(time2) >= 500 Then

Run(App2)

time2 = TimerInit()

EndIf

WEnd

Mind you, this is from the top of my head and UNTESTED!!

add a Sleep(10) in your While loop, so it doesn't use to much CPU

Not just Adlib, but have a look at this adlib udf that lets you have different timings for different loops.

tossing a sleep in your main while loop will lighten the cpu load. Eg:

sleep(200)

Thanks guys the adlib function is what i was looking for and thanks for the lik. The reason i didnt add a sleep is i want different programs to run in diff loops thats why the adlib function sound like it is what i am looking for :) Thanks!
