Winwaitactive("Run")?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Does anyone know why this doesn't work? Also if I try something like "Winwaitactive("Mozilla - Gmail")" (to check Gmail...) it won't work. I'd appreciate knowing if I'm doing something wrong or if Autoit won't do it for some reason.

HI,

you may also have a look at Opt('WinTitleMatchMode', X) x = 1,2,3,4 and to get the Title may use Autoit Window Info.

So long,

see also Option WinTitleMatchMode. Maybe the title you use with WinwaitActive() does not match! Otherwise post your script, so we can see what's going wrong. Also, do a very simple test.

Run the following script and then start notepad.exe. You should then see a message box.

WinWaitActive("Untitled")
MsgBox(4096,"Info","Notepad now running ...")

If this works, re-check your code and the window titles. If this does not work, you've got a serious problem.

Cheers

Kurt

Thanks for all those that helped. I used Kurt - /dev/null/'s to test it and it worked great. I know I was doing something like that before but I had a small typo somewhere...
