Get window by mouseover

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

How can I get the handle of the window that the mouse is pointing at? I've searched, and browsed the UDFs.

*Update*: _WinAPI_WindowFromPoint appears to be what I need!

*Update2*: Except that it seems to return various child window handles, not the window handle of the application.

Simply use _WinAPI_GetParent untill it returns 0 then the window had no parents. Eg something like

$hW = WindowFromPoint(.........
do
 $hLast = $hW 
 $hW = GetParent($hLast)
Until $hW = 0

Parent = $hLast
