Conditional wait

Recommended Posts

DarkOnyx

Hi all,

I was curious... is there a way to code to wait for an event OR until so much time has passed?

In other words, I'd like to do something like this.


______________________________________________________
Run("notepad.exe")

Processwait ("notepad.exe") OR "Until 8 seconds has passed."

If Processexists "notepad.exe" then
;DO STUFF
Endif

If Not Processexists "notepad.exe" then
;DO stuff that tells me that something has failed.

Endif

 

_________________________________________________

Just curious.   Thanks for any help.
