Business Objects- Creating alerts to alert your query is done executing

Business ObjectsSAP Business Objects doesn’t make it easy to know when the query is completed running (at least not while you’re working on something else). I wrote an AutoHotKey script to alert me it is completed running (and boy does it alert me! LOL).

This way I can put BO in the background and continue working on other tasks.  When the query is complete, I get both a visual and audio alert informing me it is complete.

I had a hard time “hooking” into Business Objects but I was able to monitor status bar to see when it changes/updates.
