Detecting Save As window

Recommended Posts

I recently started a topic asking if I can detect a window by class, and I sure can. I want to detect a 'Save As' window when it appears, but I can't do it by name (it will be different in different languages of Windows).

The problem is that Save As has a general class of 'dialog box'. There can be many of them already present. How do I differentiate between those I don't care about, and 'Save as'?

Use the AutoIt Window Info tool and see if you can identify something unique about this particular dialog - you could use its text, or its size/position to identify it. The full list of possibilities is in the Help file under <Using AutoIt - Window Titles and Text (Advanced)>. :x
