WinWaitActive Timeout not working

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to use AutoItX in C# with AutoItX3Declarations as published here:


Unfortunately the WinWaitActive timeout is not working and, if the window never activates (for example because it doesn't exist), the function will never return.

What can I do?


Make sure you have 3 parameters in the call to WinWaitActive. It is easy to forget the second one and pass the timeout as the text. In that case it won't find the winow (I guess) and won't return after a certain time. Other than that, if WinWaitActive really doesn't work, you could have a while loop which exits if WinActive or time up.

Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.
