winwaitactive cannot find acrobat

Recommended Posts


I have included a screenshot of my code that waits for adobe acrobat to be found - this includes the autoitinfo screen and the acrobat screen

Don't know what I have done wrong as it never goes past the wait...

Add in some logging and error handling.  Your initial WinWaitActive has a 0 timeout...so if the window isn't active, you will send !o at the wrong window, which then causes your next WinWaitActive to never occur.  There are safer ways, such as ControlSend (send at control="" to send at the window in general)...or WinMenuSelectItem.

If you want a script that's repeatable and consistent, I'd suggest staying away from *Send functions in general.
