Message Box Pop Up

Recommended Posts

Guest monsoonfalls

I'm a newbie and I have a specific problem I'm trying to figure out how to solve.

I'm using iOpus internet macros for some automated data extraction from a web page. The problem is they keep throwing up a popup window that I have to click OK on for my script to continue. I can pay them $500 to make it go away which is stupid. Or I am hoping somewhere here knows how to hit OK on a simple message box. I assume I'll have to use autoit to launch the .iim script then close the OK button. Using Window Spy I know

>>>>>>>>>>>>( Window Title )<<<<<<<<<<<<<

iOpus Internet Macros

>>>>>>>>>>>( Visible Window Text )<<<<<<<<<


Extracted Text:

These values are constant. So how can

1. Launch the other script. ( A simple Run("file.iim") I assume

2. Wait for the internet macro script to pop up this message box

3. Then select the popup window & hit the OK button so the internet macro script will continue?

well I hate to answer this, but if it was say a different button, you can have autoit pretty much push any popup, button, etc ultrafast.

use autoitspy (included in autoit) to see the name of the button.

then just run a macro like this:

while 1
ControlClick("iOpus Internet Macros", "", "Button1"); put button name here

for educational purposes only, I am sure it is worth the $400

Thanks scriptkitty,

However I tried this out and wasn't able to get it to work for me.

Here's the solution I figured out after I discovered the help file.

Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'OX_Balance.iim',"C:\Program Files\InternetMacros\Macros",@SW_HIDE)

WinWait("iOpus Internet Macros","OK")

WinActivate("iOpus Internet Macros","OK")
