Recommended Posts

I wanted to a script to wait for any window to open and then if that window is one of the windows i'm looking for have it perform a particular aciton.

It's easy enogh with one window, but i dont want a different script for every window that i want to deal with.

While 1
    WinWait ( 'Alert' )
    WinClose ( 'Alert' )
WEnd

Just use a Select Case block inside a loop to handle more then 1 window of choice.

While 1
    Select
        Case WinExists('title 1')
            WinClose('title 1')
        Case WinExists('title 2')
            WinClose('title 2')
        Case WinExists('title 3')
            WinClose('title 3')
    EndSelect
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd

:)

1 quick question. will this be pretty nasty for resources? Is there any way to trigger it to just do the select when a new window appears?

That way it will require you to constantly check all existing windows against all previous windows, which is more resource intensive. Keeping it simple is generally the best way to keep it resource friendly.

You are going to need code to check if a new window does appear which will eat resources anyway, so you will not evade the checking. A Sleep of 1 second should not be a problem. If you have a lot of windows then perhaps using the Regular expression option 4 in a Win* function may provide more effective saving of resources and proceed with the Select statement only if the condition is true.
