send "wait"?

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

Is there a command that a person can use to let the macro called ---> "send", wait a while, instead of adding a "sleep"-command? Reason for asking is, some PC's are slower than others to respond...I need to apply a couple of "send's" ( macro's ) in my program BUT....the next "send" command must first wait for the previuos "send"-command to finish...

This page should help. More specifically look at the SendKeyDelay part.

My UDFs are generally for me. If they aren't updated for a while, it means I'm not using them myself. As soon as I start using them again, they'll get updated.

Current Projects:

IRC UDF, for IRC activities

[u]SafeExecute[/u], for picking and choosing what commands you want Execute to be able to run.

...doubt if this will help, as you still have to enter a specific time for delay...Thing is, on slow computers i wont have a clue how long the delay might vary :oops:

What are you intending to do with this script?

And just to be safe, you can use Sleep ( 5000 )

Does the window text or title change when you send one Send(), and before you need to send the next? If so you could use WinWait with the new title or text and the script will pause until that window exists, or the command times out if you use that parameter.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
