Wait for GUI controller to become active

Recommended Posts


Hi, I've been studying the Help file but haven't managed to solve this.

I'm trying to make a script that waits for a checkbox to become enabled in the target application (which I'm trying to controll) and then check it.

Since it takes a diffrent amount of time for the application to enable the checkbox, sleep(x) doesn't work very well.

Any ideas? :whistle:

Thanks in advance. :dance:

Edit: spelling

Until ; Your command becomes true

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

$enabled = 0

    $enabled = controlCommand("Window title", "Window text", "Control ID", "isEnabled")
until $enabled

You'll need to determine the correct first three arguments to ControlCommand() via AutoIt Window Info.
