A Winwait is not finding the correct window

Recommended Posts

Your title information is written wrong, and even written correctly, might not get the correct window. That Class is used extensively these days, so you might need more information to make sure you're looking at the right window.

WinWaitActive("[CLASS:Notepad]", "")

Note, there's no equal sign, and no pound/hash in there.

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.

Thank you very much for  correcting me.

I have now tried:

WinWait("[CLASS:32770]", "Register")

WinWait("[CLASS:32770]", "")

WinWait("[CLASS:Button]", "Register")

None of them seem to work.

Do you have any idea what else I could try?

Thank you,

Use a Window handle for performing these functions correctly.

like this code:

$GUI = GUICreate("GUI")
MsgBox(64,"","WinWaitActive() function will wait for the window to be restored." & @CRLF & "(Restore it from taskbar)")
MsgBox(64,"","Window is active now." & @CRLF & "(Now executing next statements)","",$GUI)
