Simple Hourly Automation?

Post by Ghosty » Tue Jun 26, 2012 12:11 am

Uh, well, I'm dyslexic, and I'm having a hard time wrestling with relatively simple code.

I'm newish to iMacros, but also JS, which is what I'm using, and I want to know if anyone has any code examples for what I'm trying to do?

Basically, I want a set of actions to operate on infinite loop until I hit stop.

So far, all I've got is opening a new tab into the appropriate page.

Can someone show me how to make a function in JS that repeats itself 20 times per hour and continues to do so forever?

Edit: It doesn't matter if it's actually on the hour or not. Just the time between has to be at least an hour.

Thank you for looking!

Code: Select all

do{
	//Create sleep var, and set it to 1 hour
	iimSet("sleep",3600)
		
	var macro;
	macro =  "CODE:";
	macro +=  "URL GOTO=http://google.com" + "\n"; 
	macro +=  "WAIT SECONDS={{sleep}}" + "\n"; 
	
	//iret contains return code for imacros script
	var iret = iimPlay(macro);

	//-101 code for pressing button "Stop" on imacros sidebar. Exit if "Stop" has been pressed.
}while(iret!=-101);
