Waiting for Window to come up

4 posts in this topic

Hi there,

I'm working on another script which is fine so far... but I have a little problem and I'm just too narrow-minded to find a better solution.

It's nothing special, I'm just starting a program and want to wait until the startup window of this program comes up and want to press a button.

So this is what works:

Run($ProgFolder & "\test.exe")

Sleep(30000)

ControlSend("test", "", "", "{ENTER}")

Sometimes the window takes about 30 seconds to come up and sometimes only 10. Now when it's only 10 I don't want the script to have to wait another 20 seconds until it goes on.

So is there any better way instead of a "Sleep" on this point? I didn't came up with anything :)

Thanks in advance!

gna... I both checked winwaitactive and winexists, but that wasn't a good solution... but I forget about winwait.

Thanks :)
