Weird AutoIT behavior... need insight

3 posts in this topic

When I open a browser window, go to an online application, and select "Download a file" - I get a pop-up window asking if I want to save the file. I am trying to write an AutoIT script that checks for that window then closes it. The following autoit code works fine.

MouseClick("Left", 221, 345,1,10)

MsgBox (4096,"Start","Starting...",3)

WinActivate("Opening Full")

WinClose("Opening Full")

exit

That is, it launches the pop-up window, activates it, then closes it. HOWEVER,...

This code

MouseClick("Left", 221, 345,1,10)

$ck = WinActivate("Opening Full",5)

If $ck = 1 Then

MsgBox (4096,"Check","ck is: " & $ck,5)

Else

MsgBox (4096,"Check","ck is: " & $ck,5)

EndIf

$ck = WinExists("Opening Full")

If $ck = 1 Then

MsgBox (4096,"Check","ck is:" &$ck, 5)

Else

MsgBox (4096,"Check","ck is:" &$ck, 5)

EndIF$ck = WinClose("Opening Full")

$ck = WinClose("Opening Full")

If $ck = 1 Then

MsgBox (4096,"Check","ck is:" &$ck, 5)

Else

MsgBox (4096,"Check","ck is:" &$ck, 5)

EndIF$ck = WinClose("Opening Full")

Prints,

ck is 0

ck is 0

ck is 0

... and fails to close the window. Why is that? I was expecting it to print ck is 1!

Stumped.

It seems to me it should be printing ck is 1. What am I missing?

In your first pass, you're using "5" (no quotes) as your second parameter on WinActivate(). The second parameter of the function is for any additional text in the window you're trying to target - I'm assuming you were setting 5 as an assumed timeout value?
