WinWait in milliseconds, possible?

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

Is it possible to use winwait with 1.5 seconds timeout  (or 1500 ms)? Like that?

Example()


Func Example()
    ; Run Notepad
    Run("notepad.exe")


    ; Wait 10 seconds for the Notepad window to appear.
    WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 1.5)


    ; Wait for 2 seconds to display the Notepad window.
    Sleep(2000)


    ; Close the Notepad window using the classname of Notepad.
    WinClose("[CLASS:Notepad]")
EndFunc   ;==>Example

It runs but I can't test it really for sure. Does anybody know?

Thanks

Not sure why you'd want something so specific, if you want more than one second, use 2. A half a second isn't going to affect all that much in the script. Unless you're running it in a loop, which is kind of pointless at that interval.


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 hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Well, I have something that may take up to 1.5 seconds to work but in case it doesn't, This extra 0.5 seconds is important.

Do you know any way?

Thanks

Well, you can make your own function, like this :

_WinWaitMs("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 1500)



; #FUNCTION# ====================================================================================================================
; Name ..........: _WinWaitMs
; Description ...: Pauses execution of the script until the requested window exists.
; Syntax ........: _WinWaitMs($sTitle[, $sText = ""[, $iTimeout = 0]])
; Parameters ....: $sTitle              - The title/hWnd/class of the window to check..
;                  $sText               - [optional] The text of the window to check. Default is an empty string.
;                  $iTimeout            - [optional] Timeout in milliseconds if the window does not exist. Default is 0 (no timeout)..
; Return values .: Success: a handle to the requested window.
;                  Failure: 0 if timeout occurred.
; ===============================================================================================================================
Func _WinWaitMs($sTitle, $sText = "", $iTimeout = 0)
    $hTimer = TimerInit()

    While 1
        If $iTimeout <> 0 AND TimerDiff($hTimer) >= $iTimeout Then ExitLoop
        If WinExists($sTitle, $sText) Then Return WinGetHandle($sTitle, $sText)
    WEnd

    Return 0
EndFunc

Is it good ?

I will try that. Looks very clever to me, thanks! Can even add a small pause of a few milliseconds to not use lots of resources while still checking very often. Thanks a lot :) You guys are clever!
