Just simple (but not for me)

 

I just want to get a message box if a file changes his date.

 

it is a simple log file from a ftpserver running at home and i just want to be informed if someone accesses this server

 

so best way is just a popup if the date (time) of the file changes

 

can you help?

Hi,

Something like this?

You need to set up the macro onn a "schedule" (eg every minute or whatever, to run and check; eliminate the box which tells you "SAME"

Best, Randall

// Demonstrating run Macro in Variable to set comparison Date stamp string from File details

// FIRST SET UP AN INI FILE WITH FILE NAME

Set Variable %T4% to "Installation Path"

If Not File Exists "logchanges.ini"

  Variable Set String %T6% "Select Log File?"

  Multiple Choice Menu: SELECT file or make new one?

  If Variable %T6% contains "Select"

    Variable Set String %T5% from File Name

  Else

    Variable Set String %T5% "%T4%\LogFile.log"

    Variable Modify String: Save %T4% to Text File

  End If

  Variable Modify String: Save %T5% to INI File

  Variable Modify String: Save %T4% to INI File

End If

Variable Set String %T1% from INI File

// Uses variables %T1%-T4%,%T11%, %T10%, %T98%, %N99%, %N1%-%N6%

Variable Set String %T3% from INI File

Variable Set From File Date/Time

Variable Set String %T31% "<DT:%T2%\sT:02:2:%N3%/%N2%/%N1%\s%N4%:%N5%:%N6%>"

Run Macro in Variable %T31%

// Check if log file (T1)  time(T2) different to that in "logchanges.ini" (T3)

If Variable %T2% <> variable %T3%

  Variable Modify String: Save %T2% to INI File

  Text Box Display: DIFFERENT

Else

  Text Box Display: SAME

End If
