Name of the active window

3 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I am trying to get the name of the active window, any advice?

Also, how could we do something like what the AutoIT window Info tool does? to point at a window and get the information. Which are the funcs to use....

Many thanks

Have a look at the win functions: http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/

In order to get the current window, just use this simple UDF:

sleep(5000)
msgbox(0,"",_activewindow())

Func _activewindow()
    return WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]")
EndFunc   ;==>_winactive

I have included a brief example at the very top.

Hope it helps

Also, please do not double post your topic

Edit: more effecient UDF, forgot use of [ACTIVE]
