IELoadWaitTimeout

What happens when the load wait functions times out?

It seems to be returning an error and closing the script, which is not what I want it to do :/

Try using this at the top of your script.

_IEErrorHandlerRegister()

With that at the top of the code, what will the script do when a page times out?

Why not just test it and see?

Yes, it should return an error, no it should not close your script - unless conditions you are not trapping for cause logic problems in your script that cause it to fail.

See the helpfile... functions that can timeout will return the symbolic value $_IEStatus_LoadWaitTimeout (which equates to 6) when a timeout occurs:

6 ($_IEStatus_LoadWaitTimeout) = Load Wait Timeout

You script should continue on when this occurs, but if you don't check for that return value you might expect to be able to access something on a page, like a form for example, that doesn't yet exist because the page load is not complete.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
