WinWaitActive() with UTF8/Non-Ascii letters

5 posts in this topic

Hey. I'm trying to set up an automation for uTorrent (µTorrent) and the autoit window tool shows the title as "µTorrent 1.7.5", with the only visible text being that in the search box (which the user can change, so it's not reliable)..

Was just testing out being able to interact with uTorrent, but I couldn't get the simplest of all things to work- WinWaitActive().

I tried something like,

local $title = "µTorrent 1.7.5"

WinWaitActive($title)

Send("!n")

and I couldn't get this to work. I'd switch over to the uTorrent window and nothing would happen. Script wouldn't finish. still waiting for that window to be active. I tried removing the mu character, and it wouldn't match with that, either.

Something super obvious I'm missing?

Hi,

It's true, the "Title Match" funcs not work in some cases with non ASCI characters (using standard mode), but you can use advanced mode for titles search...

Try this instead:

$TitleMatch = "[REGEXPTITLE:.Torrent.*]"
WinWaitActive($TitleMatch)
Send("!n")

Hrm. Still seems to not want to trigger. I got it to trigger once, but it seems inconsistent. I wonder if how uTorrent minimizes to tray fools WinWaitActive() somehow? Or maybe it's that in conjunction with Vista somehow...

Base on what do you check if the window is activated?

Maybe try this:

$TitleMatch = "[REGEXPTITLE:.Torrent.*]"
WinWaitActive($TitleMatch)
MsgBox(0, "", "Ok, it's activated")

MsgBox(0, "", "Ok, it's activated")

I was basing it on whether or not the script had terminated, since after it waits, there's no code left, it should close. Either it is waiting for the window or it's freezing.

I did try having a MsgBox as well, and It only triggered seemingly randomly. Does anyone else here have any experience with uTorrent in particular? Maybe there's something fishy going on that I can't see.
