Bad returned window titles

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Has anyone else had the issue of bad window titles being returned? I'll try to add some code here to help to see what I am doing. I have the current window title it is checking returned to see it and sometimes there is a lot of garbage added to the title. I find that restarting or rerunning the script helps, but not always.

Func winCheck($winTitle, $winText = "", $exitOnFailure = 1, $winWaitActiveTimer = "default", $logError = 0)
    Opt("WinWaitDelay", 100)
    Opt("WinDetectHiddenText", 1)

    If $wintitle = "Program Manager" Then
        Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
    Else
        Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 1)
    EndIf

    ;sets to true if exitOnFailure is true, but the active window is a message box.
    $isMsgBox = 0

    ;if the timer has not been overriden it will setill be zero
    If $winWaitActiveTimer = "default" Then
        $winWaitActiveTimer = Lookup("Settings.WinWaitDuration")
    EndIf

    LogDebug("Starting window check on " & $winTitle & " " & $wintext)

    ;if the window exists check that it is active
    If Not WinWaitActive($winTitle, $winText, $winWaitActiveTimer) Then

        ;This means we tried to close down all windows in HBB and had a failure winCheck("Horizon Blood Bank - Program Manager")
        If StringInStr($wintitle, "Program Manager", 1) or StringInStr($wintitle, "Warning Code: RE28", 1) Then
        ;If $wintitle = "Horizon Blood Bank - Program Manager" Or $wintitle = "Warning Code: RE28" then
            LogTrace("Sending Fatal Error response")
            FullExit(Lookup("Response.FatalError"))
        EndIf

        ;reset the $wintitle so we only move the error box
        If WinActive("Error", "") Or WinActive("Warning", "") Or WinActive("Info", "") Or WinActive("Question","") Then
            LogDebug("Moving Error/Warning/Info window.")
            ;$errorTitle = WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]")
            WinMove("[ACTIVE]", "", 0, 0)
        EndIf

        If $exitOnFailure Then
            LogError("Expected window failure. Expected " & $winTitle & " " & $wintext & ". Active window is " & WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]"))
            killWindows()
            fullexit()
        Else
            If $logError Then LogError("Expected window failure. Expected " & $winTitle & " " & $wintext & ". Active window is " & WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]"))
            SetError (-1)
            Return 0
        EndIf
    EndIf

    LogDebug("Completed window check on " & $winTitle & " " & $wintext)
    Return 1
EndFunc   ;==>winCheck

No takers on this one?

The only places I see you using WinGetTitle() are two instances of WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]").

So, what window title is active at that time, and what are you getting instead?

:x

:huh2:

I'll see if I can reproduce and get the exact return of the window title. It's basically almost correct, what is returned, but there is garbage in it that makes the match fail.
