Wait for text ? Then do !

5 posts in this topic

Hi I had an idea for a script and I was woundering if anyone could tell me if it possible to do.

Here is a very basic idea of what Id need to start !

I want an autoit script to wait for a certain word or words to be written on an open msword document and once that word has been typed to do a preset action corrosponding to that word.

Like for example if the word "ring" is typed into the open msword page a sound effect (ring.wav) would be played ?

Can anyone explain to me how this could be done ?

this is a example. in a NotePad windows,when you type "ring", it will send("ok"). If the times of "ring" is over 10 , the script is over.

winactivate("Untitled - Notepad")
$site=0
$flag=0
$tm=1
do
   $txt=controlgettext("Untitled - Notepad","","Edit1")
   $inw=stringinstr($txt,"ring",0,$tm)
   if $inw>$site then
      $tm=$tm+1
      $site=$inw
      send("ok")
   endif
   if $tm>10 then
      $flag=1
   endif
   sleep(100)
until $flag=1

AutoIt cannot read the text in word. Word uses a "custom" control.

Yeah,AutoIt can't do with custon control, so you can use NotePad instead it.

Do you want to wait till the text contains "ring" and then Beep ?

WinActivate("Untitled - Notepad")

While 1
   $TXT = ControlGetText("Untitled - Notepad", "", "Edit1")
   $CHECK = StringInStr($TXT, "ring", 0)
   If $CHECK = 0 Then
     ;Send("ok")   
   Else 
      Run('C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe "' & 'C:\My Music\soundeffects\ring.wav"')  
      ExitLoop
   EndIf
   Sleep(10) 
Wend
