Size and position of current window

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi, just started AutoIt yesterday and would like some help.

I'd like to know if there is a way for AutoIt to continue updating the position/size of the active window if it has been moved.

My code so far:

Opt("PixelCoordMode", 0)
WinActivate ("[TITLE:MY TITLE OF ACTIVE WINDOW GOES HERE]")

Global $state = WinGetState ("[ACTIVE]")
Global $size = WinGetPos ("[ACTIVE]")

While 1
    If BitAND($state, 8) Then ;if the window is active do this
        $coord = PixelSearch ( 0, 0, $size[2], $size[3], COLOUR, 2, 2, "[ACTIVE]")
    EndIf
    If $coord = Chr(0) Then ;if there is no coordinates from the pixelsearch, pause
        Sleep(100)
    Else
        MouseClick("left", $coord[0], $coord[1], 1) ;if coordinates found, click
        Sleep(1000)
    EndIf
WEnd
EndFunc

Any help would be appreciated.

*EDIT*, also any links to tutorials to learn more AutoIt would be awesome. I'm currently just learning from looking at the functions list.

jokester001,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :graduated:

Take a look at AutoItSetOption("PixelCoordMode") in the Help file. If you set it to modes 0/2 then it is tied to the window and you do not need to worry about the GUI moving. :D

As to tutorials, reading the Help file (at least the first few sections - Using AutoIt, Tutorials and the first couple of References) will help you enormously. There are excellent tutorials here and here - you will find other more advanced tutorials in the Wiki (the link is at the top of the page).

There are even video tutorials on YouTube if you prefer watching to reading. :(
