#1708 closed Bug (Fixed)

Error in Simple Notepad Automation Tutorial

Reported by: medragn@… Owned by: Jpm
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


In the Tutorial, the AutoIt v3 window Info shows a different Visible Text than what is inserted in WinWait Active. The following from the tutorial does not work.

WinWaitActive("Notepad", "Do you want to save")

The following does work
WinWaitActive("Notepad", "Save")

Please correct the tutorial.
As a beginner trying to follow the tutorial, it was frustrating to have exactly what the tutorial said should work and have it not work. I am not a windows programmer.
