Hi,

I am trying to search for a user in my Global Address book in Lotus Notes.  I can automate that process however I'm trying to pause the script until the search is done but I am unsure on how to get that information.

Lotus Notes displays text on the lower left hand corner of the screen "Searching for "What ever user"  56bcb00230a98_LNisSeachingforTest.PNG.77 but I am unsure on how to grab that data and pause the script until it goes away.

I'm not sure WinWait would work for this.

Any help is greatly  appreciated.

Lotus notes provides a programming API that can be called from AutoIt.
Please search the forum for examples.

Using AutoIt Window Info I can't seem to grab the text Notes displays to me.

Once it's done loading the "lightning bolt" symbol is gone so you MIGHT be able to do a PixelSearch() on that area.

Hi,

So I found a UDF called "ImageSeach"  but I cant get it to work.

 

#include <ImageSearch.au3>

HotKeySet("p", "checkForImage")

global $y = 0, $x = 0

Func checkForImage()
Local $search = _ImageSearch('LNSearch.bmp', 0, $y, $x, 0)
If $search = 1 Then
MsgBox(0, "Test", "Found you")
EndIf
EndFunc

Here is the error I am getting:

>"C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\..\autoit3.exe" /ErrorStdOut "D:\Stuff\Scripts\SeachForImage.au3"    
>Exit code: 3221225477    Time: 2.896
