A question

Hi guys.

I wrote a DLL which presses an Outlook 2007 button, and upon this, a dialog is being displayed. The dialog has two buttons: Ok and Cancel.

Opt ("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)

$dll = DllOpen ("SparkOffice.dll")
$result = DllCall($dll, "bool", "PressCommandBarButton", "str", "Outlook", "str", "Standard", "str", "Conference")
ConsoleWrite ("DllCall Error = " & @error & @CRLF) ;the DllCall return value
if $result[0] = 1 Then ;the function return value
    ConsoleWrite ("Result = true" & @CRLF)
Else
    ConsoleWrite ("Result = false" & @CRLF)
EndIf

DllClose($dll)

ConsoleWrite ("DllClose Error = " & @error & @CRLF)

If WinExists("Win title") Then
    ConsoleWrite ("Found window" & @CRLF)
        WinClose("Win title")
Else
    ConsoleWrite ("Not Found window" & @CRLF)
EndIf

I noticed that right after the dialog appears, the script halts!

So I cannot detect it and surly cannot close it. Why is that?

Only after I close the dialog manually, the script continues, and naturally it is useless...

Can someone advice please?

DllCall() is a blocking function. It doesn't return control to the script until the DLL returns. Your DLL evidently does not return until that dialog is closed. Nothing AutoIt can do about that.

Well, you are right! It is really the DLL function with waits for the dialog closing..

Thanks.

You could create another script to wait for the dialog box, then click ok when opened?
