Winlist, what is the problem ?

4 posts in this topic

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) 
    
$abc = WinList("Window","")
    
For $i = 1 to $table[0][0]

    $xyz = $abc[$i][0]
    WinActivate($xyz,"")

    $k = WinActive($xyz,"")
;------------------------------------------------
    If  $k =1 Then
        MsgBox(0,"yes","activated",2)
    EndIf

    If  $k = 0 Then
        MsgBox(0,$xyz,"son of a bitch",4)
    EndIf
Next

This doesnt always work. Sometimes I get "MsgBox(0,$xyz,"son of a bitch",4)" meaning

WinActivate($xyz,"")

didnt work.

WTF ?? :)

For $i = 1 to $table[0][0]

    $xyz = $abc[$i][0]
    WinActivate($xyz,"")

    $k = WinActive($xyz,"")
    WinWaitActive($xyz,"")
;------------------------------------------------
    If  $k =1 Then
        MsgBox(0,"yes","activated",2)
    EndIf

    If  $k = 0 Then
        MsgBox(0,$xyz,"son of a bitch",4)
    EndIf
Next

Edit: You could also do it this way

For $i = 1 to $table[0][0]

    $xyz = $abc[$i][0]
    WinActivate($xyz,"")

    $k = WinActive($xyz,"")
    Do
       Sleep(100)
    Until WinActive($xyz,"")
;------------------------------------------------
    If  $k =1 Then
        MsgBox(0,"yes","activated",2)
    EndIf

    If  $k = 0 Then
        MsgBox(0,$xyz,"son of a bitch",4)
    EndIf
Next

Thats because of where you are checking $k = WinActive($xyz,"")

In my first code change WinWaitActive($xyz,"") to

$k= WinWaitActive($xyz,"", 3)
;; 3 is a timeout for waiting (3 seconds) you can adjust that.
;; If it times out then $k will return 0

Don't forget to comment out your existing $k = WinActive($xyz,"")
