Need help with renaming window?

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hey guys!

I was wondering if there was a way to rename windows after a set time frame, while on a continuous loop. For example, I want it to rename "Main" every 10 minutes. Here's what I have so far.

WinSetTitle("Main", "", Random( 1, 999999999 ) )
Sleep(600000)

But the problem is, it will rename the window once; and since it's a randomly generated variable- I can't have that change in another 10 minutes. Is there any way I can fix this?

Thanks in advance!

IrishPride,

Look at AdlibRegister in the Help file - it lets you run a function at a specified time interval. :)

once it's renamed to a random number "main" won't match it anymore you'd have to do something like

$OldTitle = "Main"

while 1
    $NewTitle = Random( 1, 999999999 )
    WinSetTitle($OldTitle, "", $NewTitle )
    $OldTitle = $NewTitle
    Sleep(600000)
wend
