Progresson Conflicts With Winwaitactive

7 posts in this topic

I Had a script running great and then I decieded it would be even better if I add a progress bar.

Well, The problem is. I have about 30 WinWaitActive statements in this script and with the Progress window open they no longer work and time out.

Any ideas how to have the sript ignore the progress window? I would really hate to have to rewrite the script because of the status bar.

Thanks

damned spotty wireless, I'd written something then hit post and it bleeped.

why not do winwait then winactivate before each winwaitactive?

(edit: changed it to what I meant to say)

How about using the WinExists() function? Something like

$timeout_seconds = 30
$elapsed_seconds = 0
While 1
  Sleep(1000)
  $elapsed_seconds = $elapsed_seconds + 1
  If WinExists("My window title") Then ExitLoop;we have a valid window
  If $timeout_seconds >= $timeout_seconds Then;the timeout was reached
   ;code to handle a "window failed to open" case goes here
  EndIf
WEnd

-or- WinWait in stead of WinWaitActive..

WinWait waits untill the windows exists where WinWaitActive waits till the windos exists and has the focus...

I really like tooltip, and so I use that a ton. It stays on top, and doesn't ever steal focus.

Example of tooltip progressbar.

tooltip("Loading...please wait",0,0)
$x=1

For $i=1 To 10
tip()
MsgBox(1,"hi","",2)
$x=$x+9
Next

func tip()
tooltip($x&"% done",0,0)
endfunc

Anyway just a thought.

I think I just figured it out... I put a ,1 at the end to remove the border. it's not as nice looking now but it appears to function better.

Thanks for all the suggestions

Mike
