Func using Process?

Recommended Posts

Traxex84

Hello, I am fairly new to AutoIT I have been teaching myself and reading a few tutorials to get the hang of it all. Pretty much what I wanted to know if there is a variable for process'? Right now I am using $WindowName = "Window Name Here"

Now I want to make it run off a process as some programs such are Internet Browsers have a changing window name depending on what website you are on so is it possible to use firefox as a variable similar to $WindowName but $ProcessCommandHere = "Firefox.exe"

Thanks for the help

Someone pointed me in the right direction this is what I have so far, but it only runs once. If I try to run it again it will not rename its self a second time. Any help?

$NEW_TITLE = "New name here"
     
    While 1
            If ProcessExists("firefox.exe") Then
                    $windows = WinList()
                    $number_of_windows = $windows[0][0]
     
                    For $i = 0 To $number_of_windows Step 1
                            If StringInStr($windows[$i][0], "firefox") > 1 Then
                                    WinSetTitle($windows[$i][0], "", $NEW_TITLE)
                            EndIf
                    Next
     
                    While 1
                            Sleep(1000)
                            If not ProcessExists("firefox.exe") Then
                                    ExitLoop
                            EndIf
                    WEnd
            EndIf
    Sleep(1000)
    WEnd

Because the script enter in the second loop and keeps there until the process stop of existing.

Try this.

$NEW_TITLE = "New name here"

While 1
    If ProcessExists("firefox.exe") Then
        $windows = WinList()
        $number_of_windows = $windows[0][0]

        For $i = 0 To $number_of_windows Step 1
            If StringInStr($windows[$i][0], "firefox") > 1 Then
                WinSetTitle($windows[$i][0], "", $NEW_TITLE)
            EndIf
        Next

;~      While 1
;~          Sleep(1000)
;~          If Not ProcessExists("firefox.exe") Then
;~              ExitLoop
;~          EndIf
;~      WEnd
    EndIf
    Sleep(1000)

I only commented out the lines of the second loop.

A Tip: you can tidy your scripts using the tidy tool inside the SciTe(If you use SciTe as editor)

SciTE ---> Tools ----> Tidy AutoIt Source

Another Tip: You can use WinExists to look the window by his class and check any instance of this.

And Other tip: maybe you can put the existance of the window like the condition for the loop.

Example:

While WinExists("CLASS:MozillaUIWindowClass]")
;Script here
