Force Window New Title

8 posts in this topic

Im trying to force my apps window title to be the what i specify regardless to if the executable name is changed etc.

My current code:

;~ Change Title Of Console Window
WinActivate(-1)
$Window = WinGetTitle('[ACTIVE]')
WinSetTitle($Window, '', 'Dekaron Server Manager (Build ' & $nVersion & ')')

It works but is there a 100% way to do this? or is this the best method?

Use something more reliable to get the window handle and use that, similar to:

;~ Change Title Of Console Window
$hWin = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:DekaronSvr; INSTANCE:1]", "")
WinSetTitle($hWin, '', 'Dekaron Server Manager (Build ' & $nVersion & ')')

See help file under Window Title and Text - Advanced.

The problem is, im using Console.au3 UDF and the window is being ran off a cmd prompt. So it has a "ConsoleClass" and there are several for the use of this tool. That's the problem im having. I have it run that code during program run-time, so it is the active window 99% of the time. Im just looking for a for-sure way of doing it regardless to file name edits, or window checking etc.

I am not familiar with Console.au3.

But your script should be keeping track of the windows\consoles you open with the handles in an array, or something similar. If you have an array of five already opened windows and your script creates another, WinList("[CLASS:ConsoleClass]", "") them all and the one that isn't already listed in your array, or already named by your convention, is the new one.

The other console windows are separate server files entirely. Im just looking for a sure-way to point the WinSetTitle to the launched program. Without using match modes etc. I been down each road so far this is the only thing working with any script. In other words im looking for the "global" solution. That people can just copy + paste and change a few words to make it work for them aswell. Edited by Warmonger

"Match modes" should never be used any more. Since many versions ago, AutoIt defaults to "Advanced" (what used to be mode 4) and the advanced specifications such as "[CLASS:ConsoleClass]", REGEXPTITLE, or REGEXPCLASS work fine and should be used. [see help file under "Window Title and Text - Advanced".]

If you've been down these roads before, post the CLASS or REGEXPCLASS strings you used to find your "Dekaron Server" console windows. Or maybe how you handled the array from WinList() without finding the one you want.

:huh2:

WinSetTitle('[REGEXPTITLE:DSM;CLASS:ConsoleWindowClass]', '', 'Manager (Version ' & $nVersion & ')')

But that still isn't good enough for me. It can be bypassed by renaming the executable.

Use WinList() with the CLASS spec to get a list of the console windows. Then walk through the array to match up the window handle with the parent process PID using WinGetProcess().
