How to detect new windows are openned..

3 posts in this topic

I am facing a challenge of manipulating IE.

New window will be openned when I click button on the page, the new page might not be openned up soon as there might be some response time, in such case I supposed to place a Winwaitactivate to wait until this new page is open, while in some case such page will turn to a error page if the content doesn't exist, so ... how could I detect the new page has been openned, which then WINEXIST could help to judge first which page is openned... then I could proceed...

Please help help...

Regards

Have you tried using SEND() and Copy a portion of the open window into clipboard, then use ClipGet() and test it for what you are looking for?

EX.

Func TEST()

Local $TEST1

WinActivate("Internet Explorer")

WinWaitActive("Internet Explorer")

DO

Send("{HOME}{TAB}+{RIGHT}+{RIGHT}+{RIGHT}!EC")

$TEST1 = ClipGet()

Until $TEST1 = "WEL" ; Suppose first three letters of text on screen is WEL (WELCOME)

EndFunc

Something like this would run until $TEST1 = what you were waiting for. Obviously the keystrokes would have to be tested manually by you first, but then once you code those proplery, it will run well.

I hope this helps!

I also forgot to mention, you could test the TEXT of the window title until it reflects what you are looking for...

EX

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",2 )

WinWaitActive ( "AutoIt Forums" , "Replying in How to detect new windows are openned..")

For your case, the latter solution would probably be a better choice since IE changes the text of the title based on the webpage.

The Former case was where the window title doesn't change but the contents do... Sorry for the confusion.
