Loop waiting for for editbox to be ready

Post by Scones » Tue Feb 04, 2020 1:07 pm


Just thought i would share something i did to solve a problem i had.

I'm trying to automate an interface where literally no objects are recognizable so i have to be creative. Image recognition is also not an option for me.

I needed to find out when an editbox would be ready for input.

This loop keeps trying to type and copy until something actually comes into the clipboard.

Code: Select all

Send s
Press CTRL
Send ac
Release CTRL
Wait 0.1
I know this is not rocket science, i'm still new.

If anyone know of a simpler way. Please let me know :)
