WaitForStringReceived

Wait for the specified data to be received from the host. Since VT emulation is character based, FlexTerm can't wait for text to appear at a particular position on the screen. When macros are recorded, this is automatically generated to produce accurate screen navigations. 


Syntax

FlexScreen.WaitForStringReceived(Text, [WaitMSec])


Parameters


Text

String, input



Text string to wait for.


[WaitMSec]

Integer, input, optional



Number of milliseconds before the wait method will timeout.


Remarks

If the optional WaitMSec parameter is specified, it will be used as the maximum wait time before a timeout error occurs. If unspecified, FlexScreen.WaitTimeoutMSec will be used instead.


When a timeout occurs, a run time error will be generated and the macro will stop unless On Error Resume Next is in effect, in which case, WaitForStringReceived will return a false value.


Example

Sub Main()

  Ok = FlexScreen.WaitForStringReceived("Userid")

  Ok = FlexScreen.SendKeys("MyUserID")

  Ok = FlexScreen.SendKeys(FlexKey.VT_RETURN)

End Sub
