Never had any problem before.. below is the results of the run.. any ideas on where I might look.. that is the only error i get and its only after a 30 second delay.. I suppose a time out..

I am still really new with AutoIT. We are using it to automate logging into web sites and I have encountered problems with focus. The target web page is configured to put the cursor into the first text field (username) when the page is loaded, and when I run the AutoIT script, which does the log in seems like it is just not starting where I expect it to be.
I have been kind of using ToolTip() to kind of help with debugging, but now I am wondering if the calls to ToolTip() are causing the focus to be messed up.
For example, at least visually, when the ToolTip() is called, I can see the cursor disappear from the web page text field and they when I do anything that is supposed to send keystrokes, they are going off somwhere else ("never-neverland").
But when I remove some of the ToolTip() calls, it works correctly.
So the questions I have are:
1) Do the ToolTip() calls interfere with/change where the focus on the target page are?
2) In general, what are the "rules" for where ToolTip can be used "safely" (== doesn't interfere with focus)?
I've written the code below which launches chrome in incognito mode and then proceeds to go to the autoit website.
From my understanding, the Run() command is also supposed to output the PID number related to the application that got launched from the Run command.
However when I run the below lines, it outputs a PID number that is different from the newly launched chrome browser's PID number, does anyone know why and possibly explain how I could retrieve the accurate PID number associated with the newly launched browser?
Global $iPid = Run(@ComSpec & ' /c start chrome.exe https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/ -incognito' ,"", "") msgbox(0,"",$iPid) Thank you,
I've been trying to figure out how to launch Google Chrome in the background (hidden) but it doesn't seem possible. I've tried the following methods:
ShellExecute("C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe", "", "", "", @SW_HIDE) Also I've tried:
ShellExecute(@ComSpec, "/c start chrome.exe","","",@SW_HIDE) Lastly I tried:
But all of them launch my chrome browser without hiding it. Does anyone know a workaround for this or if AutoIT just can't Chrome?
Bonus points if you know how to make it launch chrome hidden and make it go to https://www.autoitscript.com
I'm trying to get the output data from https://www.guilded.gg but it uses a web app that generates that output on the fly and this doesn't show up in the page source.
Only in web inspector of each browser does this data show up. How do I read this data in autoit (equivalent to the web inspector)
