How do I use WinWait or WinExist to look for multiple windows

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I trying to code a Function which will look for multiple windows quickly without having to wait for a series of If statesments and such.

Here was my thoughts and seems to just sit there and do nothing:

#Include <WinAPI.au3>
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 1)
Global $hWnd

If $hWnd=WinWait("window1" Or "Window2 Or "Window3") Then
   $WinTitle = _WinAPI_GetWindowText($hWnd)
   
   If StringInStr("Window1",$Wintitle) then 
     Msgbox(1,"Found Window",$WinTitle&" "&"Was found!")
     Exit
   ElseIf StringInStr("Window2",$Wintitle) then 
     Msgbox(1,"Found Window",$WinTitle&" "&"Was found!")
     Exit
   ElseIf StringInStr("Window3",$Wintitle) then 
     Msgbox(1,"Found Window",$WinTitle&" "&"Was found!")
     Exit
   EndIf
Else
   Msgbox(1,"Window Detection error","No defined window was found.")
   Exit
Endif

Try the first 'If' this way, If $hWnd=WinWait("window1", "", 1) Or $hWnd=WinWait("Window2", "", 1) Or $hWnd=WinWait("Window3", "", 1) Then. I haven't tested this, so I don't know if it works..and if a window exists, it won't check past that. So if 1 is true, it won't check 2 and 3..
