How to to find out ...

5 posts in this topic

Hi All,

i want to check if a application was loaded and ready for the user.

For example :

- Adoby PDF : doubleklick on a pdf - has it been loaded and visible for the user? or

- Word : ... startet and ready the write (no more modules loading) or

- Irfan View: doubleklick on a grafic should open it - does it?

Reason: Check if applicationinstall was correct and fully functional.

Output should be done in excel or a database.

Thanks for help!

Hi Neoborn,

sorry for my late answer (but job, kids, football ... )

To check if a process is present is not enough. Think on XP itself. The GUI is there, but there are a lot of

programs which will beloaded in the background. I want to have the time from the "doubleclick" of a application to the full loaded application.

Same in word, excel, adobe ...

I need the time to the point the application is fully loaded.

Some ideas?

Thanks

run("winword.exe")
(36,"App finished?","Press OK when application finished loading.")
;put other code here

That script runs Word, ask user if is app finished loading, then script does whatever you wish.

Hmm - i can't give a good example...

Did you ever have started Word and you want to start writing, but the letters won't be on the paper when you type .. you have to wait a few seconds and all written letters appear.

So word wasn't fully loaded ...

The point is the one app. doesn't load anything - another a little bit more.

And "i542" : no user interaction should be done. AutoIt should do everything by itself.

- start word : start time

- wait till everything is loaded : end time

- display or save results

Starting and so on is no problem, but how can i be sure everything is loaded?

Thanks

Dizzy
