I written a macro that do some actions on a web page and wait a certain amount of time that it gets from the web site and continue...

When I use the "Wait for Time To Elapse" command to suspend the macro for "N1" minutes its working but it freezes my pc while it Waits :( (windows vista 64bit).

 

So I think as an alternative to split my macro and to schedule the second half of the macro from the first half but I didn't fined any command to do it :blink:

How does the webpage 'tell' your macro the correct amount of time to wait? Do the contents of the webpage actually change in someway after the elapsed time? I think MacEx can "watch for" changes in a webpage by using "get pixel color."

I will need to modify my macro a little but it could work I will test it

Edit: But I still have to wait somehow and test the pixel again and so on so It actually bring us to the same problem as before, the "wait"

You might try creating a scheduled macro. Leave it disabled and then have your 'master' macro enable it using the Macro Enable command. Yo can put a Macro Disable command inside your scheduled macro at the appropriate place to stop the scheduled macro after it no longer needs to run.

I need that the first macro will schedule the second macro automatically because I only know when the second macro need to runs when the first macro runs

I finished writing all the other parts of the macro B)

Only this part left...

I Will explain it more clearly now that I finished writing it and I know exactly what I need to do

 

my macro go to a web and get a time to wait from sum countdown clocks on different pages, and select the shortest time like 4 hours for example... (the time is inconstant!)

the macro then need to schedule itself to ran in 4 hours by our example

So in 4 hours It will run again and get a new wating time, schedule, run, get new time, schedule, run, get new time......and so on

 

when the timer complete on the web page the window title stay the same
