If application is idle for 15 minutes, show a pup up message

Recommended Posts

This Example checks the CPU usage of the Process

HotKeySet('{ESC}', '_Exit')
Local $sProcName = 'explorer.exe'
Local $nPid = ProcessExists($sProcName)
;Check Existence of the Process
If Not $nPid Then Exit -1

PollProcessIdleTime($nPid, 5000, 15000)
Exit @error

Func _CPU_Usage($nPid = 0, $hostname = ".")
$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts://" & $hostname & "/root/cimv2")
$colProcess = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_PerfFormattedData_" & _
"PerfProc_Process Where IDProcess ='" & $nPid & "'")
For $objProcess In $colProcess
Return Int($objProcess.PercentProcessorTime)
EndFunc   ;==>_CPU_Usage

Func _Exit()
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

Here is what you posted (trimmed):

$hWnd = ProcessExists("EFrame2.exe")
If WinActive($hWnd) Then

It seems that you don't understand some basics. Here let me explain the example I posted earlier:

what "ProcessExists("EFrame2.exe")" returns is a PID (process ID WIKI). A unique number assigned to this process. When you look for a window, you can either find that window by using it's title and text or using it's handle (hWnd). You cannot use the PID as a Handle, these are totally different things.

What "_WinAPI_EnumProcessWindows" returns is an Array of windows belonging to a Process ID (PID). as you can see from the help file of WinAPIEx, the returned array contains Window Handles, so you can use these window handles to check if the window is active or not.

So you can see that what you posted earlier don't work. You cannot input directly the PID returned by ProcessExists into WinActive.
