How to find text in a certain area.

Recommended Posts

Hey, I'm pretty new to this language and I have basically no idea when it comes to what the hell I'm doing. What I'm trying to do is figure out how to write a script that would look in a certain area for a phrase and then execute something based on that. I'm not completely stupid... I understand how to execute it. >.>

$working=1

While $working=1
    WinWaitActive("IM with CrampAlert from RobIsMyMessiah")
        if StringRegExp("Hold on","Hold") then send("If you get this message, my program is working - sorry for the spam.{ENTER}")
        WEnd

That's what I have so far... What I expected it to do is find the phrase 'hold on,' find 'hold,' and spam if those conditions were met, thereby stopping the spam after 'hold on' is off the IM screen. What happens is just continuous spam.

What I'm really ultimately after is something that would just find "hold on" in the newest IM line, send a message, and then wait for the phrase "hold on" to be displayed again. It probably doesn't make much sense to you, but it's for a script I need for a different reason that I intend to switch to code over to - I just figured this explanation would help you guys understand what I wanted better. If you need anything clarified, let me know.

I'm not exactly sure what your after but you might have success with wingettext or controlgettext. The help file should explain usage pretty well

The first thing that needs clarification is the need to send spam by any method, at any time.

It's going to be used for something that other players can't see in-game, but I was testing it by having it send a message to a friend.
