Self.Focus() only processing once even though in a loop - VBScript

piattnd asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a program that I want to have a reminder after a certain time period.  I'm using a SetInterval command to loop through once the condition is met until they perform a certain action.  During this interval, the self.focus() command is used to pop the window back to the front.  It works the first time it loops through, but then will not work until I close the HTA and relaunch.

I've also tried the .AppActivate(PID) method and still have the same results.

Anyone help me here?
