How do I select the window I want the script to run in?

5 posts in this topic

I have a basic script that can basically run in any window. How do I tell the autoit script which window to run the script for?

Some more explanation is needed. What do you mean by 'the window to run the script for'? Autoit can create its on GUI or interact with existing windows but I don't really understand what you want to do.

Let's say I have multiple copies of notepad.exe up. There are 2 notepad files up, the titles are: notepad1.txt and notepad2.txt. I only want to perform autoit functions to notepad1.txt.

What is the exact title for the window for which you want to perform functions?

When you have the answer: What functions do you want to perform for that Window?

Some AutoIt3 function have to option to tell what window to use or else ypu need to make it the active window first in case of Send() for example.

Be sure to read the documentation about Window Titles, you can use these in ControlSend() commands as title parameter.

In the example on the ControlSend() doc page "[CLASS:Notepad]" is used as title parameter, but you have many more options.
