call au3 script and wait within another au3

Recommended Posts

bhumis

Hi everyone,

I searched the forum and help file before starting this topic. Looks like there are work arounds to "run and wait au3 script within another script".

I have two au3 files with functions and other code.

"first.au3" has a reusable code (not functions) kind of a set up that i need to run again and again from the other au3 scripts.

Run('"' & @AutoItExe & '" /AutoIt3ExecuteScript "' & $sFilePath & '"', $sWorkingDir, $iShowFlag, $iOptFlag)

The above "Run" function from "second.au3" script just runs the "first.au3" and does not wait until it is done. For time being i am using "sleep" after calling "first.au3".

Is there any other way to wait for the above script to finish off running "first.au3" before running "second.au3"?

Any help is greately apprecaited.

RunWait doesn't work?


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.

My apologies! I am still a beginner, reading the help file and writing code at the same code.

Somehow i commented Runwait and using Run instead in my code. I reran using RunWait, it works fine.

Sorry for wasting your time.

No worries, at least you opened the help file, which is more than most new users are capable of. :D
