Determining the readiness of another program
I am looking for ideas on how to be able to tell if a program is fully loaded and ready for input. I am using
to start my program and the program can take between 10 seconds and 10 minutes to load. After the program is loaded, I have several automation steps being done, so they can't be started until the program has loaded.
Any ideas on how I can interact with my Windows XP os to determine if the program is ready for input? Whether it is using Java, or some other language/technique?
