Need Ideas for a Loop

2 posts in this topic

I'm looking for ideas...

I need to run a loop while an application is not busy, so I need to test for the not busy status. I am thinking of using ControlCommand() to see if a control is grayed-out or possibly ControlGetText() to see if certain text exists.

This loop will be embedded in a function so the test will occur in the main loop of the script. I'll use an IF...Then in the main loop to call the function.

So if you got ideas using other than ControlCommand() or ControlGetText() I'd like to review them.

I use those methods if the apps have windows, that just seems most logical to me checking for specific conditions with things like "IsVisible"/"IsEnabled", I suppose you could monitor the apps CPU consumption, but I don't think that would reliable at all really.

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
