I'm using WinMenuSelectItem() successfully in the application I'm automating but i'm looking for another feature.
I use WinMenuSelectItem to Process a record.
I then need to use WinMenuSelectItem to Save the record, but I shouldn't save before the Process step above finishes (Save option is always enabled).
Sadly, the only way to know if Processing actually finished is when another menu item gets enabled (but I don't want to select that other menu item, just wait until it's enabled)
The AU3Info tool doesn't show me anything for the menu bar items so I can't use ControlCommand IsEnabled.
Anybody have other ideas?
Quick example using SciTE menu bar as they act the same, AU3Info can't see those menu items either.
;Undo in SciTE, then wait until Redo is enabled but dont click it. If WinMenuSelectItem("[CLASS:SciTEWindow]", "", "&Edit", "&Undo") Then ConsoleWrite("Undo clicked" & @CRLF) ;How to I know if "&Edit", "&Redo" is enabled? Else ConsoleWrite("Can't find Undo" & @CRLF) EndIf ;Erase this line then run/F5 to get back
