Function WinExists is always true - advice appreciated

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello !

My script checks if a window exists and then performs actions on the window.

Unfortunately the WinExist function is always true, even if the window of interest is not visible.

It must be hidden or something similar.

Is there a smart way to let the script react to only visible windows?

Any help or advise is much appreciated.

Regards,

Stefan

edit:

BTW: I already thought about using WinWaitActive, but the window of interest is sometimes visible, but WinWaitActive does not react. (Taskbar Tile is blinking then)

caliph,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

You could use WinGetState and see if the window is visible by doing something like this:

If BitAND(WinGetState($hGUI), 2) Then ....

You have to use BitAND because the window is likely to have several state values set. :)
