in reply to Win32::GuiTest module application problem

The issue is that you only search for the window once. $window[0] doesn't automatically update as the window state changes. You need to test each time through the loop. The test code cleans up a little by putting it in a sub:

use strict; use warnings; use Win32::GuiTest; while (my $window = findWindow("Calculator")) { print("calculator window is open\n"); sleep 2; } print "Calculator window closed\n"; sub findWindow { my ($caption) = @_; my @windows = Win32::GuiTest::FindWindowLike(undef, "Calculator"); return $windows[0]; }

Prints (for my test):

calculator window is open calculator window is open calculator window is open calculator window is open Calculator window closed
