Question about _FFDisConnect

Recommended Posts

Akshay07

Hello all,

I checked the definition of _FFDisConnect but I did not find the answer I am looking for.

http://english.documentation.ff-au3.thorsten-willert.de/ff_functions/_FFDisConnect.php

If _FFDisConnect() is true, does that mean that the process firefox.exe has been fully terminated, or does that only mean that _FFQuit has been successfully executed?

I would like to monitor when FF has been fully closed, meaning that not only _FFDisConnect() has been sent, but that the process has actually ended.

Thanks!

_FFDisConnect only shuts down the (TCP) connection to FireFox/MozRepl.

_FFQuit makes the same and closes the current FireFox-window (not FireFox).

Both _FFDisConnect and _FFQuit don't returns if the process has ended.

Thank you for your answer, I appreciate this! I understand better now. Before reading this, I added some stuff to monitor when the firefox process was shut down so I did find a solution, but your comment is very helpful anyway as it helps me to understand better how this works.
