Watching / reacting to changes of parts of other windows...

4 posts in this topic

Lets say i want to make autoit install somthing. Or another automated task. Now lets say that task had a progress bar. Is there a way to make autoit "see" that progress bar, not as we see it, but the actual value of the bar, and react accordingly? like if at 80% i want to make the computer play a sound so that the person knows that they need to start paying attention, or make autoit do somthing, how do i do that?

I can use the tool that came with autoit to see what the progress bar's name is, but how do i get a value from that name? basically thats what im wondering.

I don't know if you can get the value of a progress bar. You might be able to find the coordinates of a progress bar with ControlGetPos, and then use PixelSearch to find out when that progress bar changes color at the 80% mark.
