WinAPI: Callback function in VBScript
Anyone ever try a WinAPI callback function call in VBScript? Here's the deal: I am trying to write a procedure that will open an internet explorer browser, and return the browser's Widows handle. I can use the EnumWindows API call to do it, and I can write something in VB6 that does this very well. However, I need to write this so that it is portable without dealing with DLL hell issues. Also, QTP needs to be able use it. I am going to see if I can get this to work, but thought someone might've tried ......

The last one there is totally ......

I've read too many posts about compatibility issues with existing scripts written in 8.2 when migrated to 9.0. Something on an 18% magnitude.

QTP: GetROProperty vs. Page.Object
I strongly dislike waiting. This applies at the drugstore, the DMV, or any other place. I patiently accept that this happens, however, since life is just like that. I do try to avoid it whenever reasonably possible, especially at work. Which explains why I try to never use a Wait() statement in QTP. Wait seems like a cop-out; rather than attempt to find that one property that indicates the state of my application, I’ll put pick a time and hope for the best. My linear-thinking, anal-retentive mind ......
