  1. Hi cats,

    for kindness I try to modify a batch so that the script ask to the user:

    want u use smooth resize (press Yes "Y")? or LancZosResiZE (press No "N") ?

    if (within 3 seconds) the user type "Y" a variable called smoothResize become == 1

    otherwise after 3 seconds (even if you do not type anything in the keyboard) the batch have to continue

    How can I resolve? thanks

    PS: IF POSSIBLE I DON'T WANT USE THE CHOICE COMMAND : THANKS ^^

    Would this work from another link?
    Use the SET /P command to read input from the user. The SET /P command will print the string you specify and prompt the user for information:

    @echo off

    SET /P ANSWER=Do you want to continue (Y/N)?
    echo You chose: %ANSWER%
    if /i {%ANSWER%}=={y} (goto :yes)
    if /i {%ANSWER%}=={yes} (goto :yes)
    goto :no
    :yes
    echo You pressed yes!
    exit /b 0

    :no
    echo You pressed no!
    exit /b 1

  3. I have do some search on the internet but for example, in your script where is specify the timeout of 3 seconds?

    I correct my initial request:

    tha batch don't have to differentiate from yes and no: simply the user have to type Y (yes) if he want the smoothresize, in the meantime the countdown goes on. After 3 seconds, if the user have no-input on the keyboard the batch assume to use the normal resize method

    only if the user have type Y --> a variable called smoothResize change of state from 0 to 1

    Which is the entire reason why "choice" exists, if you don't want to use the only command that was designed for the task, then you're out of luck.

  5. I have a little program that asks whatever is on the command line and returns errorlevel 0 if n/N is pressed, errorlevel 1 if y/Y is pressed. No timeout though.

    This works for me and sets 10 second delay. If you want more change waitMins to minutes and waitMins*10 to waitMins*60. The object is to arrive at Seconds...
    1*10=10 seconds... 30*60=1800 Seconds(30 Minutes). You will also have to fill in a valid process to perform instead of the Echo Process1 and Echo Process2. The default is set to n (/d n) so change to /d c if you wish it.

    This is documented courtesy of a better DOS person than I at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12331428/how-to-ask-for-batch-file-user-input-with-a-timeout

    ----Code Below-----

    Echo off
    :START
    set waitMins=1

    echo PC WILL RESTART IN %waitMins% SECONDS: Press N to restart [N]ow or C to [C]ancel
    :: Calculate Seconds
    set /a waitMins=waitMins*10
    :: Choices are n and c, default choice is n, timeout = 1800 seconds
    choice /c nc /d n /t %waitMins%

    :: [N]ow = 1; [C]ancel = 2
    goto Label%errorlevel%

    :Label1
    echo Process1 here
    :: Make sure that the process doesn't fall through to Lable2
    goto :eof

    :Label2
    echo process2 here
    ::exit

    PERHAPS these ones will be helpful

    Code:
    timeout
    
    TIMEOUT - This utility is similar to the DOS PAUSE command.  However, it
              accepts a timeout parameter to specify a length of wait (in seconds)
              at which time it will continue without a key press.

              Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation, 1992-1995.
    
    Usage -   TIMEOUT <###>
              where <###> is a decimal number of seconds between -1 and 100000.
              The value -1 means to wait indefinitely for a key hit.
    Code:
    sleep --help
    Usage: sleep NUMBER[SUFFIX]...
      or:  sleep OPTION
    Pause for NUMBER seconds.  SUFFIX may be `s' for seconds (the default),
    `m' for minutes, `h' for hours or `d' for days.  Unlike most implementations
    that require NUMBER be an integer, here NUMBER may be an arbitrary floating
    point number.

  8. move that question to the beginning of your batch script, it kind of makes little sense to wait long time to confirm something

    The problem I have with 'Sleep' and 'Timeout' as I understand them, is that Sleep does just that and cannot be interrupted with keystrokes and Timeout can be interrupted with key-presses but they have to be set with 'set /p' which again will wait forever until you type something in. No matter which I put first, i couldn't arrive at a maximum timeout that can be shortened by hitting a key and yet fall through automatically if nothing is pressed.

    Maybe I missed something but the Choice with timeout accomplished it for me but as I mentioned earlier, I'm far from a DOS Guru.

    Considering some of the ridiculous string sequences the average programmer has to memorize, not even having English as a second language can excuse that mistake.
