Example: ctrx_set_window_ex Synchronization Functions

Waits a specified time for a window to appear in the Citrix client.

int ctrx_set_window_ex( char *window_name, long waitTime, [CONTINUE_ON_ERROR,] CTRX_LAST );
window_name The window title.
waitTime The time, in seconds, to wait for window_name to appear
CONTINUE_ON_ERROR A constant, entered as shown without quotes. Overrides the error behavior run-time setting for this step so that script behaves as though the run-time setting was Continue on error.
CTRX_LAST A marker that indicates the end of the argument list.

When emulating a GUI user, a window must appear before it can be used.

ctrx_set_window_ex is a synchronization function that waits up to waitTime seconds for a window to appear before the Vuser emulates any keyboard or mouse activity in the window.

The window_name argument indicates the name of the window that ctrx_set_window_ex waits for, as it appears in the window's top header frame. The asterisk wildcard character (*) can be used in window_name.

waitTime is the timeout for the window to appear. If window_name does not appear in within this period, ctrx_set_window_ex exits. waitTime does not affect the timeout of other functions, only the call to ctrx_set_window_ex.

If there is a succession of windows appearing in a short period of time, VuGen will only record the last call to ctrx_set_window_ex.
