Need assistance with Send("!n")

4 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

I am pretty new to AutoIt script writing. I am having a bit of trouble with closing programs that use the Alt key. For example, running the script that is provided in AutoIt Help:

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
Send("This is some text.")
WinClose("Untitled - Notepad")
WinWaitActive("Notepad", "Do you want to save")
Send("!n")

When the script finishes, and the "Do you want to save?" box appears, nothing happens. I've tried uppercase N and lowercase n. I can get Window key commands "#" to work but nothing with the Alt key. I am running Windows 7 64 Bit Edition and using autoit-v3.3.5.6-beta. What am I doing wrong? Thank you in advance for any advice. Please do not flame me if I clearly overlooked something. :graduated:

yt0k,

MS have changed the text of the dialog in Vista and Win7 since the Help file was created. Just change the WinWaitActive line to read:

WinWaitActive("Notepad")

and it should work. :graduated:

how about some sleep instead of winwaitactive. (on my slow box it was closing anyway tho)

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
Send("This is some text.")
sleep(1000)
WinClose("Untitled - Notepad")
sleep (1000)
Send("!n")
