Help to loop for specific times and not infinite

Post by frankhack1 » Tue May 13, 2014 8:10 pm

Hi !

Where do I have to change to tell the macros to loop 200 times and not infinite?

Code: Select all

var a, timeOut, playStatus, macro;
var en = "\n";

a = 1;
while (a <= 1) {
	macro =  "CODE:";
	macro +=  "TAB T=1" + "\n"; 
	macro +=  "CLEAR" + "\n"; 
	macro +=  "URL GOTO=http://www.idealista.com/alquiler-viviendas/barcelona/eixample/la-sagrada-familia/" + "\n"; 
	macro +=  "TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=CLASS:h1aux EXTRACT=TXT" + "\n";
	macro +=  "TAG POS=1 TYPE=LI ATTR=ID:*&&CLASS:adv*" + "\n"; 
	playStatus = iimPlay(macro)
	if (playStatus >= 1) {
		a++;
	}
	else {
		iimDisplay("Website time out, reloading...");
		a = 1;
	}
};
var extracted = iimGetLastExtract();
var del1 = iimGetLastExtract().replace(": ","");
var del2 = del1.replace("anuncios","");
var totalPage = del2;

a = 1;
while (a <= totalPage) {
	macro =  "CODE:";
	macro +=  "TAB T=1" + "\n"; 
	macro +=  "TAG POS=1 TYPE=DIV ATTR=CLASS:advertiser-data<SP>txt-soft EXTRACT=TXT" + "\n"; 
	var advertiserData = iimPlay(macro)
	var data = iimGetLastExtract();
	var searchParticular = /particular/i;
	var ifParticular = searchParticular.test(data);
	macro =  "CODE:";
	macro +=  "TAB T=1" + "\n"; 
	macro +=  "SET !TIMEOUT_STEP 2" +en;
	macro +=  "TAG POS=1 TYPE=DIV ATTR=CLASS:about-advertiser" + "\n"; 
	var advert = iimPlay(macro)
	if (ifParticular == true && advert <= 1) {
		iimDisplay("The URL will be extracted. Saving to C:urls.csv")
		macro =  "CODE:";
		macro +=  "TAB T=1" + "\n"; 
		macro +=  "SET !EXTRACTADD {{!URLCURRENT}}" + "\n"; 
		macro +=  "SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=C:\ FILE=urls.csv" + "\n"; 
		playStatus = iimPlay(macro)

		iimDisplay("Saving complete.")
		macro =  "CODE:";
		macro +=  "TAB T=1" + "\n"; 
		macro +=  "TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:siguiente" + "\n"; 
		iimPlay(macro)
		a++;
	}
	else {
		iimDisplay("The URL will not be Extracted. Next page...")
		macro =  "CODE:";
		macro +=  "TAB T=1" + "\n"; 
		macro +=  "TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:siguiente" + "\n"; 
		iimPlay(macro)
		a++;
	}
}

Hi frankhack1,

If you want to use totalPage as number and not as a string :

Code: Select all

var totalPage = parseInt(del2) ;
