Windows Focus issue


Go to solution Solved by JockoDundee,

Recommended Posts

My Step is simple,

1) Open IE

2) When prompt with "Security Alert", click a specific button

3)  then it will load into another page, prompt for password.

 

The issue is the "Security Prompt" always stays behind, image below. I cannot get it to focus and hence the script hang / stop. But when i click on the security prompt, the script able to continue.

hey guys, will need a simple solution to bring the security prompt box up (instead of IE). Thanks.

I suspect the WinWaitActive lines before WinActivate are the problem (waiting for window to active).

What if you put the WinActivate lines first (before WinWaitActivate)?

 

Also, it seems like the best solution to overcome this would be to add the site as a trusted site in IE; that way you wouldn't even have to worry about the security alert window.  Is that not an option?

Thanks for the suggestion. However, this is a work-station and i am not the admin ,therefore unable adjust the setting as it is locked by Admin. This is the only way, to click.

 

Because i amd trying out any difference between swapping the command to which is first, WinActivate / WinWaitActivate, but no luck, issue remains.

This security question is just one part of the whole automation process. I may not have a full admin rights but the process for using the laptop is the same as a user. I have do the same process in order to use the laptop and i believe using Autoit can automate such process by minimize clicks, which increase productivity. And i also believe that the windows focus issue i am having may not be related to the Admin rights.

Why do you think you would be able to automate a security question on a machine which you don’t have full rights on?

Well, it often can.  
However, there are well known limitations in regards to interacting with system tools and prompts when not running with elevated permissions.

For instance, even though a regular user may launch Task Manager and do various things, all interactions cannot be automated when logged in as a regular user, though it can for an authorized user.

 

Code hard, but don’t hard code...
