At "Window" Activity in the window contents option, each object assumes the "AND" search criteria when locating the window.


I suggest a new option, that could use an object subset that assumes an "OR" search criteria when locating the window.


The attached image illustrates an example where the "Wait" activity would be satisfied when an Excel spreadsheet opens with one object equals to (Type: ClientArea/Name: Pasta1/Class: EXCEL7) AND one object equals to (Type: PageTab/Name: Plan1/Class:EXCEL7 OR Type: PageTab/Name: Sheet1/Class: EXCEL7)


The suggested behavior could be used on another activities where the "Window Contents" option is applicable too.
