ok i hate asking for help but i have to.

i've used version 2 but 3 is a little different.

is there a way to have autoit wait for a advanced window feature? i need to have it wait for a windows that has a "classname=IEFrame", and text of "setup.html"

this is what i have so far

;begin script

Sleep ( 20000 )

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)

$handle = WinGetHandle("classname=IEFrame", "setup.html")

Send ( '{Tab}' )

Sleep ( 1000 )

Send ( '{ENTER}' )

;end of script

the script works but I would like to remove the sleep command and have it wait for the specified window to appear. i've tried "winwait $handle = WinGetHandle("classname=IEFrame", "setup.html") but maybe i'm doing something wrong.

any help would be appreciated.

thank you

ok i must be an idiot..

i'm assuming that

$handle = WinGetHandle("classname=IEFrame", "setup.html")

sets the variable and the

WinWait("handle=" & $handle)

is simply waiting for the varible (window) to appear. if this is the case, it just sits there... could i be doing something wrong?

CyberSlug,

Is this what I should be trying?

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)

$handle = WinGetHandle("classname=IEFrame", "setup.html")

WinWait("handle=" & $handle)

Send ( '{Tab}' )

etc.

I've tried many variations but have not found the solution.

If I cant get this working, I can send the script in a loop until the window appears. I would usually use the "goto" command but its not supported in version3.

of I can place it in an adlib statement.

Thanks in advance

You have a major logic error there. You can't get the handle to a window that doesn't exist and also you can't rely on waiting for a window handle, anyway, as they are assigned by Windows however it sees fit (Meaning, randomly).

Try something like:

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
WinWait("classname=IEFrame", "setup.html")
Send ( '{Tab}' )

I must need more coffee :D Valik is quite right, so try his suggestion.
