please help me with window check state and loops

2 posts in this topic

Hello there people.

So I've made a script for a friend, it logs into two instances of yahoo messenger with two different id's and passwords.

I wanna improve the script, I have noticed that if I click on another window the script waits for window to activate WinWaitActive, so I wanna make loop to check the state of the window, if it's active to continue the script else to activate it.

I kinda have an idea how to do it, but I don't really know how loops work because I have no experience with programming... and I also wanna know how to activate a certain window, because they have the same ID, but I've seen they have different instances, so I wanna know how to take advantage of this to tell the two instances apart.

PS: the window pulls out 4 lines from a text if you wanna change your two accounts and passwords, but that is not important.

Here is the script

#include
#include
#include
#include
#include

Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe")
Sleep(600)
WinActivate("Yahoo! Messenger")
Sleep(10)
WinWaitActive("Yahoo! Messenger")
Sleep(300)
If ControlGetText("Yahoo! Messenger", "", 2) == "&Cancel" Then
ControlClick("Yahoo! Messenger", "", 2)
EndIf
Sleep(300)

$line1 = FileReadLine("EditLoginSettings.txt", 1) ;reads the controls into variables from txt file
$line2 = FileReadLine("EditLoginSettings.txt", 2)
$line3 = FileReadLine("EditLoginSettings.txt", 3)
$line4 = FileReadLine("EditLoginSettings.txt", 4)


ControlSetText("Yahoo! Messenger", "", 211, $line1)
Sleep(50)
ControlSetText("Yahoo! Messenger", "", 212, $line2)
Sleep(400)
ControlClick("Yahoo! Messenger", "", 1)
Sleep(5000)

Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe") ;second instance
Sleep(600)
WinWaitActive("Yahoo! Messenger")
Sleep(500)
If ControlGetText("Yahoo! Messenger", "", 2) == "&Cancel" Then
ControlClick("Yahoo! Messenger", "", 2)
EndIf
Sleep(500)

ControlSetText("Yahoo! Messenger", "", 211, $line3)
Sleep(50)
ControlSetText("Yahoo! Messenger", "", 212, $line4)
Sleep(400)
ControlClick("Yahoo! Messenger", "", 1)
Sleep(10)
