How to Read Dialog Box?

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

Apologies in advance as this must be in the forums but I cannot find it.

I simply want AutoIT to sit and wait in a loop until one of two possible dialog boxes appear from a program, once that has occured the program can advance appropriately. So the question is how to I poll the dialog box and feed feed information into a variable?

Thank you

Welcome to the forum. You will want to investigate functions such as WinActive, WinExists and WinWaitActive in the AutoIt help file. These functions will tell you if a window exits and is active, based on the title of the window. The help file also has a tutorial ("Simple Notepad Automation") that shows how it starts Notepad and then waits for it to become active that you can look at for an example.

If you have a specific problem that you need help with, please post a small piece of code here that shows the problem you are having and we'll be glad to help you out.
