Checking if event or something was successful?

Recommended Posts

olo

Hey all,

I have a T style GUI. As in tpanel, twordform etc.

 

Now in my script it opens the program up then clicks on a button.

How do I check if the clicking of the button was successful?

I know it is successful because I see it but how to I check its success within the script?

Thanks :)

Some sample code:

WinWait("[TITLE:Info]")
ControlClick("[TITLE:Info]", "OK", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]", "left", 1)
Sleep(500)

I like linear error handling:

$bcontinue = true

$hwin = WinWait("[TITLE:Info]")
If IsHWnd($hwin) Then
    ConsoleWrite("able to find window" & @CRLF)
Else
    $bcontinue = false
    ConsoleWrite("UNable to find window"& @CRLF)
EndIf

If $bcontinue Then
    If ControlClick($hwin, "OK", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]", "left", 1) Then
        ConsoleWrite("able to click button" & @CRLF)
    Else
        $bcontinue = false
        ConsoleWrite("UNable to click button"& @CRLF)
    EndIf
EndIf       

; expect window to close...added just to demonstrate another block of code
If $bcontinue Then
    If WinWaitClose($hwin, "", 5) Then
        ConsoleWrite("able to close window from button click" & @CRLF)
    Else
        $bcontinue = false
        ConsoleWrite("UNable to close window from button click" & @CRLF)
    EndIf
EndIf

From reading the help file you should have seen this for ControlClick

 

Return Value
Success: Returns 1.
Failure: Returns 0.

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 basically want to store the info in a text file.

But also want to have it in the way that if I get an error say that the button is un-clickable for example that the rest of the script stops executing.

My sameple shows how to do that...use filewrite, or create your own logging function to output to file (rather than the consolewrite).

You probably want to validate that the window state and control state are in a good state to allow interaction (enabled, visible, etc)

WinGetState

ControlCommand...options isvisible, isenabled

Then, I would suggest creating functions to loop for those expected states for a the callers amount of time (example: 5 seconds should handle load times for most apps on most comps...if you want to handle for slower, up to longer max wait)...if not in the expected state, return false, else return true
