waittillguinotexist ('<window name>'[, '<component name>'[, guiTimeOut]])
If the given window name does not exist, this function returns 1. If window exist, then this function returns 0. Difference between guiexist
and waitguinotexist is, waitguinotexist waits for maximum 30 seconds. Still the window does not disappear, then 0 is returned. We can set the environment variable 'GUI_TIMEOUT' to change the default waiting time. We can wait for component also and its an optional argument. The default value of guiTimeOut is None and it can be changed either by environment variable or by passing an integer argument > 0. This timeout will be for this specific window and it will not affect the global default time out settings. If you want to change the global default time out settings use guitimeout or objtimeout function appropriately.
- Return values:
|1 ||on success, 0 otherwise|
This function will be useful, when some event is fired and after that if an existing window should close, we can use this function to wait till the window closes.
