Bug Discovered in WinWaitClose (I think)

7 posts in this topic

I'm pretty sure I've discovered a bug in the WinWaitClose function when WinSetTitleMatchMode is set to 2. Here's a confirmation script that demonstrates what I'm talking about by using IrfanView's Palette entries window and Color subwindow.

#cs

This script demonstrates that there is an error in the way

3.0.103.0 finds windows during the WinWaitClose function when

WinTitleMatchMode is set to 2.

It first launches IrfanView (a common freeware graphic viewer)

with a graphic.

Then, it opens a child window called "Palette entries" and waits

for the user to close it. This always detects things properly.

Finally it opens a child window called "Color" which is a child

of the Palette window. The script detects that this window exists

and is active, but the script always fails to detect when this

window closes.

#ce

; PATH TO THE IRFANVIEW IMAGE VIEWER PROGRAM

$irfanViewPath = 'C:\Program Files\Accessories\IrfanView\i_view32.exe'

; PATH TO A GIF IMAGE WITH 16 COLORS (MUST BE AN IMAGE WITH 256 OR FEWER COLORS)

$picturePath = 'c:\trash\jeff16.gif'

Run($irfanViewPath & ' ' & $picturePath)

AutoItSetOption ( "WinTitleMatchMode", 2 )

AutoItSetOption ( "MouseCoordMode",0)

WinActivate('IrfanView')

WinWaitActive('IrfanView')

Send('!iee')

WinWaitActive('Palette entries','')

MsgBox(0,'','Now close the Palette entries window.')

WinWaitClose('Palette entries','')

MsgBox(0,'','Palette Window Closed')

Send('!iee')

WinWaitActive('Palette entries','')

MouseClick('left',15,34,2,0)

WinWaitActive('Color','')

MsgBox(0,'','Now close the Color window.')

If WinWaitClose('Color','',5) Then

MsgBox(0,'','Color Window Closed!')

Else

MsgBox(0,'','Could not detect closed window after 5 seconds')

EndIf

Works for me..

Are you closing the MSGBOX before closing the palette window ?

It doesn't work for me either way. I'm bouncing my Windows 2000 Pro machine to see if that's somehow the problem. I regressed back to .102.0 and the problem persisted, so I'm trying a reboot.

If it wasn't for AutoIt, I think I'd hate windows :-)

Are you getting the MsgBox(0,'','Could not detect closed window after 5 seconds')

message?

If so add these statements to see which window it sees:

MsgBox(4096,"debug", WinGetTitle("Color"))

MsgBox(4096,"debug", WinGetText("Color"))

After a reboot, it seems to work. What's the deal with that?

In a situation like that, my colleagues say:

That's Windows

Don't expect Windows to behave the same, everytime.

A reboot of the computer usually solves it.

I don't know if it's typical Windows-behaviour or the RAM (memory) is cluttered.

Any window with the word "close" in the title would give you this problem... even when it is hidden...

thats why i suggested to retrieve the windowtitle and text when you have this issue again... this might give you a clou...
