Activate a Macro with Window Title only once

Recommended Posts

If you intended to have your macro wait 15 seconds after the Bookmarks window closes you should not use Macro Stop. No macro commands, including the Delay command at the end, will run after the Macro Stop command.  Instead use Break. That skips to the macro command after the End Repeat. However, in this case, neither Break nor Macro Stop is needed because setting T77 to Done will stop the repeat loop. Try something like this:

// Run the macro until the window is closed.
Variable Set String %T[77]% to "Not"
Repeat Until %T[77]% Equals "Done"
  If Not Window "Bookmarks - Google Chrome" is running
    Variable Set String %T[77]% to "Done"
  End If
  Delay: 100 milliseconds
End Repeat
Delay: 15 Seconds

You still need some delay inside the repeat loop for the reason stated above.

Samrae,

 

My thinking on the 15 seconds may be wrong. I originally added the delay, because my macro kept going through the commands over and over again. Adding a 15s delay made that tolerable. Since I made the change you suggested, the macro keeps running, but does not continue playing the commands. So, I don't think the 15s delay is needed anymore.

 

After your last suggestion, I went with the 100 ms you show above and deleted the 15s delay. Everything froze again, and I had to log out. I changed the 100ms to 5000ms, and it seems to work OK for now.
