4 posts in this topic

Hello everyone!

There are 2 running programs with the same name for example Notepad - Untitled both the programs going in the background, how can i make a ControlSend command for these windows (1 for the 1st window, and 1 for the 2nd, or 1 for both the windows)?

Please help me. Thank you!

Best thing to do is to get the instances.

You can do this by identifying the window title if they are different.

If they are not different, you can try something similar to this function I wrote for a StealthBot program (note: I only checked a max of 10 instances):

For $i = 1 To 10
        If StringInStr(WinGetTitle("[CLASS:ThunderRT6FormDC; INSTANCE:" & $i & "]"), $SB_User) > 0 Then
            $stealthbotwin = WinGetProcess("[CLASS:ThunderRT6FormDC; INSTANCE:" & $i & "]")
            MsgBox(0, "Attach Successful", "Successfuly attached to Stealthbot window with user " & $SB_User)
            Log_Action("Successfuly attached to Stealthbot window with user " & $SB_User)
            Return
        EndIf
    Next

Quick and easy way is to get the handle when you first create the window and use that to refer to it from then on. The title can change or might not be unique, but the window handle is guaranteed to be unique and not change for the life of that window.
