This action is used to synchronize the task with opening or closing a certain window. The action pauses the task and waits for the necessary window operation for the specified timeout and after that resumes the task. If the action does not detect the necessary window operation within the timeout, the "Timeout is over" error occurs.
Window Caption – Window caption. You can specify only the distinctive part of the caption if the window has no constant caption. You can select the window you need from the list if you click the button to the right from the input field.
Caption must match exactly – If you need the window caption to match the specified string exactly, select this checkbox.
Window class – Window class (or window type). You should either type the window class manually or select the window you need from the list by clicking the button to the left from the input field. You can type part of the window class as well.
Class name must match exactly – If you need the window class to match the specified string exactly, select this checkbox. The class of a window does not change all the time the window exists. So, as a rule, you have to enable this option.

•Window changed caption.

If the timeout is over you can specify an action:
•Raise Timeout error - this is default option
•Set True or False to variable - in this case the task will continue work without error.
