Winwait not working

5 posts in this topic

This function was 100% working until i added support for timeouts. Now it does not go past the winwait, even if the window exists. Here is the code:

Func LoopControlClick($title,$text,$control,$x=-1,$y=-1,$timeout=20000000)
    
    $seconds=$timeout/1000
    $result=WinWait($title,$seconds)
    
    DMsg($result)
    If $result=1 Then
        
        If $x=-1 Then
            $xvar=GetCenter($title,$text,$control,0)
            $yvar=GetCenter($title,$text,$control,1)
        Else
            $xvar=$x
            $yvar=$y
        EndIf
        
        $timer=0
        
        Do
            $state=0
            $state+=ControlCommand($title,$text,$control,"IsEnabled")
            $state+=ControlCommand($title,$text,$control,"IsVisible")
            If $state<>2 Then
                Sleep(200)
                $timer+=200
            EndIf
            If $timer>=$timeout Then
                ExitLoop
            EndIf
        Until $state=2 
        
        $status=0
        
        If $timer<$timeout Then
            Do
                    WinActivate($title)
                    WinWaitActive($title,"",.5)
                $status=ControlClick($title,$text,$control,"Left",1,$xvar,$yvar)
                If $status<>1 Then
                    Sleep(200)
                EndIf
            Until $status=1
        EndIf
    EndIf
EndFunc

WinWait's timeout is in seconds, not milliseconds. You have it waiting for about five and a half hours if you don't supply a smaller timeout in the function.

EndFunc
I expect it worked when you had

WInWait($title)

but if you want to add a time out then it must be in the third parameter not the second

WimnWait($title,'',$seconds)

Understood, which is why i divide it by 1000. But the window does exist, so it should go on.

I need the huge # because by default I do not want the script to continue on until the window exists.... which except the ones i specify optional timeouts, always will.
