Pause the script until one of the windows exists?

9 posts in this topic

I want to pause the script until one of the windows exists. So I used the following code:

<autoit>

WinWait ("Window 1" OR "Window 2" OR "Window 3")

</auoit>

But it appears that the code doesn't work. It hangs there forever.

WinWaitClose
WinWaitNotActive

Cheers.

That's not how you use Or, and you can't use WinWait for this. It should be more like

do
sleep(50)
until WinExists("Window 1") or WinExists("Window 2")

Thanks! This is exactly what I wanted to do. But one more question, what if I want to wait, but no longer than 5 minutes. How can modify the script? use a counter in a for loop?
