If WinActive("http://Yahoo.com") Then

MsgBox(0, "yahoo" "you are on yahoo!")

Looks like you are dealing with a browser window. Have a look at the IE library. The title of the window much match with what you send to WinActive.


Post your code because code says more then your words can. SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y.

WinActive() checks the Title of Active window your working with. "http://Yahoo.com" is the web address, not the title. The Title is probably something like "Yahoo! - Windows Internet Explorer". It should be in the top left of the explorer.

While 1
    If WinActive("Yahoo! - Windows Internet Explorer") Then
        MsgBox(0, "yahoo", "you are on yahoo!")
        Exit
    EndIf
    Sleep(100)
WEnd
