Bug Description

Version 1.0.1

I have found that when using the with keyword with a region, it does not always apply to the statements beneath.

For example, in the following code

def dispSchemeListRegion(sTestId,iDelay):
    match = findLog(sTestId,pDispScreenTitleBar)

        x = match.getX()
        y = match.getY()
    reg = Region(x,y,483,217)
    rDispSchemeList = Region(reg.offset(463,429))

    return rDispSchemeList

rDispSchemeList = dispSchemeListRegion(sTestId,0.5)

#the wait delay of .5 seconds is not applied to the the while loop

with rDispSchemeList:
    while not exists(pDispSchemeScrollBarBottom):
         except FindFailed:

#however, in the following example, it is and the whole block runs much faster

while not rDispSchemeList.exists(pDispSchemeScrollBarBottom):
    except FindFailed:

confirmed: bug in 1.0.1

fixed in 1.1.0:

--- testscript:
reg = Region(0,0,100,100)
print "reg.TO:", reg.getAutoWaitTimeout()

with reg:
  print "TO:", getAutoWaitTimeout()
  start = time.time()
  i = 0
  while not exists(Pattern("some_not_visible.png").exact()):
    print time.time() - start
    start = time.time()
    i += 1
    if i > 1: break

--- prints
reg.TO: 0.5
TO: 0.5

--- BTW:
I do not really see an advantage using "with" for just saving some repeated usage of some_region. and having an additional indent level.

In my opinion the explicit usage of the dotted version with the prefixed region makes things much clearer and you then know throughout the script, that an undotted usage like click() addresses the screen.

--- One more thing:
In 1.1.0 there is an alternative for with:

click() # is processed against some_region

click() # now again uses SCREEN

I added this to support switching between screens in a multi monitor environment including remote screens.
But it can as well be used with a region and saves the additional indent.

what reposting? You did not do anything wrong.

I only changed the header, to be more specific and show it is solved in 1.1.0

Oh okay then :) Thanks for the response though, the use() feature sounds really nice
