This got to be easy to do but..

3 posts in this topic

My script renames a file but it will not "take" until the window is refreshed. Is there a comnand there to do this?

F5 doesn't seem to be available. The script hangs until it does refresh to take the new name.

Thanks

could you show us your script? Perhaps we could explain why it hangs.

But you could possibly do a send("{F5}") to do the refresh


[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]

Okay I found out what the problem was. It seems Autoit script renames the file too quickly and moves on. So I change the type speed and added some sleep time. Now it runs more smoothly.

Thanks
