get window handle

Recommended Posts

manit

hi ,

I came across this interesting utility 'autoit v3 window information'

using that finder tool i can see window handle in 'window tab' & cursor position in 'mouse tab'

I also saw this script

HotKeySet("z","jPos")
While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd
Func jPos()
$jPos = MouseGetPos()
MsgBox(0, "Details", $jPos[0] & "," & $jPos[1])
EndFunc

which shows mouse position on pressing 'z'

I also read documentation on msgbox,winlist,wingethandle,guicreate.

I want to add active window handle info to that messagebox.

<h3 class="row2">

<span class="author vcard"></span>thanks JohnOne.</h3>

<p>So when I add 'MsgBox(0,0,WinGetHandle(&quot;[ACTIVE]&quot;))' in jPos function then I get two message boxes one showing mouse coordinate while other gives window handle.</p>

<p>How can I get both in same messagebox ?</p>

I see that putting

&

between variables does not add any text in message box content .

but

& ","

will insert character ,

i have this idea of creating a script which will show handles of all windows on taskbar & we can hide any by just pressing button in messagebox. Also once we hide a window then it no longer appears on taskbar yet messagebox should show its handle so we can unhide it i.e toggle.

if anyone is interested then here is code to hide active window & show mouse position,handle on pressing 'z'

HotKeySet("z","jPos")
While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd
Func jPos()
$jPos = MouseGetPos()
$var=WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]")
WinSetState ( $var , "text", @SW_HIDE )
MsgBox(0, "Details", $jPos[0] & "," & $jPos[1] & "," & "," & $var)

as mentioned earlier

I have this idea of showing a messagebox that contains rows of handles of all windows on taskbar & a toggle button associated with each handle that hides or unhides corresponding window.

There should be a refresh button which adds new handle if a window has been opened lately & remove those handles which do not exist.

i need functions to dynamically add/delete button to messagebox , associate action with those buttons

manit,

any ideas

Many ideas, but until you at least make an attempt to do it yourself you will not get a lot of help from anyone here. ;)

To give you little encouragement, I would suggest using a ListView with the $LVS_EX_CHECKBOXES extended style rather than using buttons - you can keep the GUI the same size that way. :graduated:

Melba23 , I saw the doc of creating listview . Also I could add check button for each row. Now I have to translate the log of cmdow in a format 'windowhandle||level|PID|window status|application|title' for each line.

My aim is to create GUI for cmdow.

This will be exciting .

Also what function can I use to create table taking line by line input from file ?

And how can I set an action to be executed if a check box is toggled ?
