WinWait can not find Notepad (Kladblok) window

Recommended Posts



I have set

AutoItSetOption('WinTitleMatchMode', 2)

to match a substring in the window title

then I try do look for an open Kladblok (=Notepad) window using:

AutoItSetOption('WinTitleMatchMode', 2)


I also tried :


Auto.WinWait('', 'Kladblok')

Auto.WinWait('', 'Kladblok')

but it always fails...

the actual title of the window is something like :

'outF5.tmp - Kladblok'

where 'out' and '.tmp - Kladblok' are constant, the 'F5' can vary every time.


I'm controlling AutoitX3 from python via win32com.client.

How can I effectively capture this beast?
