Help file error

Recommended Posts


Ok. I have a problem.

I went to the Autoit help file and searched on "ControGetPos". In it there is an example and a button to "Open this script". I click on that button and the file opens in SciTE. Ok so far.

Now I try to run it and the following shows up in the output pane:

>"C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\..\autoit3.exe" /ErrorStdOut "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Examples\Helpfile\ControlGetPos.au3"

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Examples\Helpfile\ControlGetPos.au3 (3) : ==> Subscript used with non-Array variable.:

MsgBox(0, "Window Stats:", "POS: " & $pos[0] & "," & $pos[1] & " SIZE: " & $pos[2] & "," & $pos[3] )

MsgBox(0, "Window Stats:", "POS: " & $pos^ ERROR

>Exit code: 1 Time: 0.563

What am I missing?

Autoit version

The problem is the example..

ControlGetPos() is being fired before the notepad Edit control has loaded..

It needs a WinWaitActive() or sleep() added after the Run("notepad.exe")..

$pos = ControlGetPos("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1")
MsgBox(0, "Window Stats:", "POS: " & $pos[0] & "," & $pos[1] & " SIZE: " & $pos[2] & "," & $pos[3])
