WinWaitActive and IF

Recommended Posts


Hello people

I have a problem

my script:

WinWaitactive("","Ahoj " & $a & "!",5)

now script waits for window containing "Ahoj " & $a & "!" and timeout is 5 second

i don´t know how to make condition: IF scrip will not find reguestet expresion ("Ahoj " & $a & "!") in 5 seconds then DO something, otherwise continue performing script commands

(i am sorry i usually programming too MathCad)

thanks a lot

You very nearly have the code set out in your text! :)

WinWaitactive("","Ahoj " & $a & "!",5)
; Check if GUI exists
If Not WinExists(("","Ahoj " & $a & "!") Then
    ; Do what you need to do if there is no GUI
; There is a GUI so carry on with the script

Depending on the way your script is written you might need to look at an If...Else...EndIf structure, but I cannot tell from that short snippet. ;)
