Wait for Progress Bar

2 posts in this topic

I have a simple script that automates button clicks. My application sends an email, but outlook has two warning windows to alert automated email sending. The first simply states that a program is trying to send email. The secont says the same thing but has a progress bar that must finish before the buttons become active. I've handled this with a Sleep command, but wondered if there was a way for AutoIt to sense that the buttons have become active so that I can send the commands. Here is the script:

;Wait for the first window then activate the OK button and then ENTER

WinWaitActive("Microsoft Office Outlook")

Send("{LEFT}")

Sleep(10)

Send("{ENTER}")

;Wait for the second window, then wait 6 seconds for the buttons to become active.

WinWaitActive("Microsoft Office Outlook")

SLEEP(6000)

Send("{LEFT}")

Send("{ENTER}")

Look at ControlCommand() and IsEnabled.. maybe that might help.
