ProcessList help needed

Recommended Posts

Assume several windows with titles starting with "(-)".

Why does this code never reach the msgbox?


Func OrderWindow()

    $Marker = "(-)"
    $First = True
    $List = ProcessList()
    $Items = $List[0][0]
    If $Items < 1 Then Return
    For $x = $Items To 1 Step -1
        If $Marker <> $List[$x][0] Then ContinueLoop
        MsgBox (0, "", $List[$x][0])

ProcessList doesn't return window titles, it returns processes. WinList returns the listing of open windows. Also, you're checking a partial title match against a full window title, those two will never be equal, you'd need to use something like StringInStr for that.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Thanks for pointed out winlist to me.

I have tried so many different ways on this that think it has become mangled to the point that it needs trained help. Help.

; align windows vertically under the window closest to the top of the desktop
Func OrderWindows()
    $List = WinList($Mark)
    $Items = $List[0][0]
    If $Items <= 1 Then Return
    ;YPos[x][0] = HWND
    ;    [x][1] = Top position
    $YPos = $List
    ; create Array of hwnd and y position
    For $x = 0 to $Items - 1
        $WinPos = WinGetPos($List[$x][1])
        $YPos[$x][0] = $List[$x][1] ;hwnd
        $YPos[$x][1] = $WinPos[1]   ;y cord
    ;order array by highest window
    _ArraySort($YPos, 0, 0, 0, 1)
    ;align all windows that titles start with $mark to align under the window highest on screen
    ;windows are all instances of the same script and are the same height
    $Left = $Ypos[0][1]
    For $x = 1 To $Items-1 ; start at 1 because 0 is the head
        $WinPos = WinGetPos($YPos[$x-1][0])
        $Top  = $WinPos[1] - $WinPos[3]
        $Left = $WinPos[0]
        WinMove($YPos[$x][0],"", $Left, $Top)
