#1
Functions to wait while web browser is busy (loading page).

FUNCTIONS:
FirefoxWait
ChromeWait

2012-08-31. Tested all with current browser versions and fixed broken ChromeWait.
2013-02-27. It seems in Opera 12 accessibility is either removed or broken. Function OperaWait will not work. Now removed.
2015-03-13. ChromeWait now works with Chrome 41.
2015-05-21. ChromeWait now works with Chrome 43.

[quote="Gintaras"]Functions to wait while web browser is busy (loading page).

Hi Gintaras, good morning. I'm having problems with an update of Chrome and the routines ChromeWait that was working well. But now it return an error because it not recongnize the end to wait. Put ahead an adaptation of ChromeWait (just changes for spanish, no more that). I'll appreciate your help to determinate what happend. Thanks ins advance and forgive my English.

function [$url]

;This is a little adaptation to "ChromeWait" designed and programmed by Gintaras at QM Forum.
;Waits until Chrome is busy (loading page).
;Error if fails, eg if Chrome closed while waiting.

;url - web page address to open.
;;;If empty, just waits while Chrome is busy.
;;;Can include command line, eg "--disable-extensions ''url''".

;To get "busy" state, uses accessible object properties of main toolbar and its Reload button. Also uses window name.
;If your Chrome uses language other than English, the default values may not match.
;Then the function fails (error). Open this function and change the first 4 variables.
;You can discover the values using the 'Find Accessible Object' dialog.


;variables to change. Usually only the last two.
str windowName="Chrome" ;;can be partial
str toolbarName="Barra" ;;can be partial
str buttonName="Cargar " ;;can be partial / In Spanish is Ok In Spanish is Ok this translate. But it's not be comparing ok.
str buttonDescriptionBeginsWith="Cargar página " ;;begins with / In Spanish is Ok this translate.

In my ChromeWait version change Chrome_WidgetWin_0 to Chrome_WidgetWin_1. Or replace with the new version, I uploaded today.
Then change the 3 variables if need for Spanish. For English they didn't change in new Chrome.
I didn't test your ChromeWait version.

Hi again, I find the problem. Chrome changed the name of button to control.

Before it was:
; get Reload button acc
a=acc(buttonName "PUSHBUTTON" a "" "" 16)

Now, it work ok:
; get Reload button acc
a=acc(buttonName "BUTTONDROPDOWN" a "" "" 16)

To Spanish, the variable setting is:
; variables to change. Usually only the last two.
str toolbarName="Chrome" ;;can be partial
str buttonName="Cargar" ;;can be partial
str buttonDescriptionBeginsWith="Cargar" ;;begins with

I was surprised this morning to discover that Google Chrome reload button acc.Description is now empty. I am wondering about the way one could then detect the busy state. One idea that I have at this moment is to use scan to detect the button's image (stop or reload image). Any advice will be most welcome.

Thanks in advance

PS : I attach herewith a version of my new wait for chrome routine, which it works satisfactorily. I will be pleased to answer any inquiries.

Here is my version with scan. I did not find a better way.
Don't need an image, waits for 1 pixel color.

Dear Gintaras,

Many thanks indeed for having dealt with it. It is obvious your version is extremely smart and elegant.

Best regards.
#11
Thanks again Gintaras. Big Grin

My simple contribution to users of Chrome in Spanish is this little adjust in a part of your code:


;variables to change
str toolbarName="Chrome|principal$" ;;regexp. In Chrome 39 it contains "Chrome"; in Chrome 41-43 it is "principal".
str buttonName="Cargar" ;;can be partial


I tested the new function in Spanish and work in excelent way, like ever.

PD: I don't know why de Chrome team's is working hard just to give us this kind of problems. :roll:
