Autoit Idle

Recommended Posts

SkellySoul

How can I find out when the computer is idle (both mouse and keyboard) I know _Timer_GetIdleTime() does exactly that but the problem is I got a tray menu and if the user pushes something on the menu it won't work since it's checking if the computer is idle or not :D

Basically what I want done is when the mouse and keyboard are idle it will shut off the internet connection and than in the tray menu there will be a option to turn it back on.

;#NoTrayIcon
#include <NetCC.au3>
#include <Timers.au3>
#Include <Constants.au3>
Opt("TrayMenuMode" , 1)

$Exit = TrayCreateItem("Exit")

$Connection = 1
While 1
    $Msg = TrayGetMsg()
    Select
        
    Case $Msg = $Exit
        Exit
EndSelect
WEnd

;Func _Idle($iSleep)
;   If _Timer_GetIdleTime() >= $iSleep Then     
;       TrayTip("Connection..." , "connection being shut off..." , 2)
;       _NetCC("ALL", 0)
;       $Connection = 0
;   EndIf
;EndFunc

You can add the tray menu item to turn it back on, but this AdLib function should take care of turning it off:
#include <NetCC.au3>
#include <Timers.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>

Opt("TrayMenuMode", 1)
Global $Exit = TrayCreateItem("Exit")
Global $Connection = 1
Global $iSleep = 30 * 60 * 1000; 30 minutes in milliseconds

AdlibRegister("_Idle", 1000); Check every 1 second

While 1
    $Msg = TrayGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $Msg = $Exit
            Exit
    EndSelect
WEnd

Func _Idle($iSleep)
    If $Connection Then
        If _Timer_GetIdleTime() >= $iSleep Then
            TrayTip("Connection...", "connection being shut off...", 2)
            _NetCC("ALL", 0)
            $Connection = 0
        EndIf
    EndIf
EndFunc ;==>_Idle

:D

Edit: Grammar.

:D

I didn't think of doing it like that I figured that would just restart it over and over again because I figured _Timer_GetIdleTime() was just sort of like the sleep function.

Then you didn't read the description of the function in the help file, or understand how the example script there works.

:D

You know, you dont have to repost every 15 minutes. I actualy think your probably hitting refresh or F5 and hitting yes to resend the data, which makes your browser think that it is doing the same post over, and sends it to the server.


func get_quote()
   local $quote 
   switch random(1, 3, 1)
    case 1
     $quote = '"' & "A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, " & _
       "design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give " & _

:D

oh ok I get how it works now... one other stupid question if you don't mine this is the code I got so far now.

The problem is when I click on "Connection On/Off" it sets $TRAY_CHECKED/$TRAY_UNCHECKED I don't want it to be checked at all I just want it to run the function without setting the state of me clicking the tray and sometimes when I hit the "Exit" in the tray it will add a check mark and not exit until I hit it again :D

#include <Misc.au3>
#include <NetCC.au3>
#include <Timers.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>

Opt("TrayMenuMode", 1)

Global $Connection , $ConnectToggle , $iSleep = 10000

_Singleton(@ScriptName , 0)


$ConnectToggle = TrayCreateItem("Connection On/Off")
$Exit = TrayCreateItem("Exit")

AdlibRegister("_Idle", 1000)

While 1
    $Msg = TrayGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $Msg = $Exit
            Exit
        Case $Msg = $ConnectToggle
            If $Connection = 1 Then
                _NetCC("ALL", 0)
                $Connection = 0
            ElseIf $Connection = 0 Then
                _NetCC("ALL", 1)
                $Connection = 1
            Else
                Exit
            EndIf
    EndSelect
WEnd

Func _Idle($iSleep)
    If $Connection Then
        If _Timer_GetIdleTime() >= $iSleep Then
            TrayTip("Connection...", "Connection being shut off...", 2)
            _NetCC("ALL", 0)
            $Connection = 0
        EndIf
    EndIf
EndFunc
