Second button not getting pressed

5 posts in this topic

I'm writing a script to call up Screamer Radio, press the "PLAY" button, then 20 seconds later, press the "REC" button..Not as elegant as I'd like, but I haven't figured out how to take advantage of the changing "Status Bar Text" change when a signal is received, so I just threw in a substantial pause. Problem is, the second MouseClick doesn't execute. Here is my code. How do I cause the second MouseClick to become active? - Mike

; This program will open the Screamer recorder and press REC.

;The MS scheduler will turn this script on/off.

run ("c:\progra~1\scream~1\screamer.exe")

WinWaitActive("Screamer Radio v0.3.8"); pauses the script until the window appears.

MouseClick ("left",474,196,2)

; need something here to cause a pause - what changes on window?

; the Status Bar Text shows status, can I key on that?

Sleep (20000)

MouseClick ( "left",445,188,2)

Are you sure it gets the first click ?? I would put a sleep in before the first click, to be sure that the program is fully loaded :whistle:

Just to provide some follow-up: I started by using coordinates to direct the cursor, but the window moved, so that idea went out the window(pun intended). Then I noticed if I pressed ENTER, the PLAY button was depressed, and it I hit TAB three times, I could get to REC. For some reason that didn't workwhen I coded it.

Then I noticed the underscore under Play and Record, so I tried alt-P and alt-R. Worked fine after I sent the correct controls.

Now, can anyone suggest a way to use the change in the Status Bar Text to act as a signal to begin recording? That would be a bit more sophisticated than simply waiting 10 seconds and hoping I've made the connection in that interval - Mike
