Wait something changes in a window

5 posts in this topic

I'm trying to make a script that does something when a text in a window changes from "Searching..." to a random number. So I have coded this:

while 1
if $c=0 Then
ExitLoop
EndIf
$c = Winwaitactive("Sixaxis Pair Tool","Searching...",1)
WEnd

But it takes 1 second until it realizes the text has changed and I want to solve that, sooo... help me maybe?

Don't put the wait in the WinWaitActive function. Insert a Sleep into your loop and check the title of the active window.

victor141516,

Rather than use WinWaitActive which has a minimum timeout of 1 sec, why not use WinActive and your own Sleep: ;)

Do
    Sleep(10)
Until Not WinActive("Sixaxis Pair Tool", "Searching...")

That should be quick enough! :D
