Title for copy window

8 posts in this topic

Hello!

Basically my problem is that when I try to copy a larger file windows changes the title of the copy window.

At the start it's called "Copying" (can't remember the exact name) then it changes to "30 seconds remaining", "15 seconds remaining" and so on.

This causes my script to randomly not work (sometimes it doesn't change the title) which I obviously can't have.

Is there a nice way around it or do I have to do, for example, a big sleep?

I hope this question hasn't been asked before and if please post a link to it.

Thank you.

Vlane,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

I would use WinGetHandle on the copy window as soon as it appears and then use the returned handle to identify it later on. ;)

register the PID (process id)

You can use WinGetProcess to do so.

After that you can use more options (ie $pos = wingetpos($pid))


Many times you need to think like hobby-bob:')

Gideon,

You are wrong. :)

The PID is useful for many things, but you cannot use it as an ID for a window. You need the handle as this script shows:

[b][/b]
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 10, 200, 20)

GUISetState()


$iPID = WinGetProcess($hGUI)

GUICtrlSetData($hLabel, "Not moving with PID")
WinMove($iPID, "", 100, 100)

Sleep(5000)

$hHandle = WinGetHandle($hGUI)

GUICtrlSetData($hLabel, "Moving with handle")
WinMove($hHandle, "", 100, 300)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Please amend your post. ;)

@M23

I did use the pid before, had no trouble before with that.

Now I can see it's wrong, didn't know that, thanks.

Vlane,

Good. :)

Just remember that you can always use a handle to identify a GUI - look at the Help file under <Using AutoIt - Window Titles and Text (Advanced)> for more details. ;)
