Don't forget the TimeOut :-)

3 posts in this topic

I have to do some filehandling which normally lasts 1 second, but sometimes (network access) up to 15 sec.

Now I can handle this comfortably using with WinWaitActive and timeout=30 sec,

but users get confused if "nothing" happens, and start clicking arround.

How could I visualise "System is working for you, connecting network"?

Thanks for helping.

But TrayTip and SplashTextOn do not exist on AutoItX3. (Do they?)

And ToolTip produces a "funny" effect:

Tooltip workes fine with Excel, ...

but in my 3er-party-application the "open" dialog looses focus, and I have no chance to refocus it.

Without ToolTip my script workes fine, but WITH ToolTip the WinWaitActive simply hangs.

AI.ToolTip "Waiting for "&OpenDialog
  AI.WinActivate OpenDialog,""
  AI.WinWaitActive(OpenDialog,"",10)
