I wanted to know if there some kind of script command to watch if another script is running.
I want to do something like :


if ("script B is running")


I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.

Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!



See this post for an idea on how to do this. (Post #2 & 3)


You could set a variable at the start of the watching script, and then reset the variable at the end of the dependent script. This would allow you to wait for change of the variable from the watching script and then continue after the variable has changed.


Thanks @rgordon. I knew there was a post like this hidden somewhere...
And thanks also @Cochran. I see that you had the same idea, so it confirms that it is the good way to go.
