WinWaitActive or alternatives

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm hoping to get some direction or suggestions...

Question: is there any way to put a pause waiting on a popup window that has a dynamically generated ID name?

For example, my script is meant to automate operations via NetOp Launcher, but once I put in my connection information it can take up to several minutes sometimes for the target system to connect; and to unfortunately, the name of the instance that opens is not static.

Currently I am using Sleep, but this is not effective, and I have not been able to get WinWait to work with dynamic instance naming conventions.

Is there any way to use wildcards or something?

Thank you,

Drew S

Use the window's classname instead of it's title.

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.

Try this (if it's an actual popup, and not a new window):

$hPopup = _WinAPI_GetWindow($hYourParentWindow,6)
Consolewrite(WinGetTitle($hPopup) & @crlf)

Thank you both very much!

Turns out it is a new window all together; completely new program that the NetOp Launcher calls, so not a popup!

However, the Class name is exactly what I needed - I just did not know that was an option.

Great success!
