Trouble with WinWait

Recommended Posts

I have the following command in one of my IE automation scripts

WinWait("View Response")

and when I have that, it seems to be fine. The reason it is waiting is because the previous step was submitting a form.

When I leave this in line with everything, it works fine, but sometimes the form has a submission error so I wanted to set up:

If WinWait("View Response","",10) <> 0 then
    MsgBox(0,"","Failed to submit correctly")

When I set this up, it does the 10 second wait, then kicks up the failed to submit message, even if the window is there. 

Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

And what does the Help file say is returned by WinWait? ;)
