menu manipulation

4 posts in this topic

While Not WinExists("Cross Reference")
Send("!f")
Send("n")
Send("x")
;;tried alternative method that didn't work... WinMenuSelectItem("Titan","&File","&New","New &Xref")
WEnd

I'm choosing an option in a menu which should bring up a child window. occasionally, the first app takes a while longer to respond so I'd just like to keep trying the menu until the child window comes up. (what I've pasted isn't working and I'm not sure why...)

thanks

I notice in your WinMenuSelectItem func you commented out that you didn't provide the correct params.

You also need to provide a param for Text in the window, or you can leave blank. Try this.

WinMenuSelectItem("Titan","","&File","&New","New &Xref")

Thanks for pointing that out spud! I tried it the right way and sadly it doesn't seem to have made a difference.

I think the fact that it is a java app might have something to do with it maybe?!?

When I do a "WinGetState ("title") on the same it gives me a return of 5 which I take means it exists and is enabled... But that is wrong. WTF?!?

Ah, If the menu is on a Java window, I don't think the WinMenuSelectItem func will work. ;) Not wure why the keystrokes don't work...
